Van Persie emulating Torres?

    Crikes! Seems an age since RVP found the back of the net for united. A dubious claim for a goal against Sunderland, definetly a Titus Bramble o.g. imho, and now an attempt at taking the credit for a Vincent Kompany o.g. on the grounds that it was his free kick that led to it! Smacks a bit of desperation to me, not going to flop is he??

    Five games without scoring seems a lot, but I also think that Manchester United are pretty much through for the title so he hasn't got that much pressure to score as many goals as he scored before. Comparing him to Torres is too early I think. Let's see what he'll manage to do towards the end of the season and then judge.

    It's quite to emulate Torres and I'm pretty sure RVP doesn't want to emulate him. Poor runs of form happen every once in a while and I think this is one of those times.
  4. Theres probably something in his contract where he gets xthousands of pounds for scoring xamount of goals. He's probably one or two short so he's desperately looking for anythinghe can claim before the end of the season.

    Strikers sometime go without scoring, its just the way football happens. Is it only 5 games? Or more now? Either way, it isn't exactly Torres situation just yet.

    I think too much pressure can be put on the men upfront, sometimes makes it harder to get back into form.

    I like RVP and I like Torres, give them both time. Torres will get back to greatness.
