Ah, but that is the internet for you. A tweet can make its way around the world many times before the truth has had a chance to look for its boots. Not this season nor the next. However, what the silliness of this rumour did do was shine a light on something else, which is that the Rangers fans are smiling once again. Or at least grinning a little bit. They did seem to enjoy the link, regardless of the ridiculousness of it all. At least their club is involved once more in impossible transfer rumours just a few years after actually signing Kevin Kyle. Mark Warburton wants the new-look League Cup to change because it doesn’t help the big club prepare for the season Getting someone such as Van Persie, even approaching his 33rd birthday is a daft notion but then did any Rangers supporter believe they would come out of the Championship and sign Joey Barton and Niko Kranjcar.

* Five wins in a row for United * Van Persie hits form * Saints suffer third defeat in a row (Adds details) LONDON, Dec 8 (Reuters) – Robin van Persie scored twice as Manchester United won at.
The Dutchman scored in each half as United, who were distinctly second best for much of the game, secured their fifth successive Premier League victory. Graziano Pelle ended a personal goal drought dating back to October by equalising but Southampton have now lost three successive Premier League games and are without a league victory since a victory against struggling Leicester City on Nov.
Manchester United have 28 points, five behind rivals Man City in second and eight less than leaders Chelsea while Southampton have dropped to fifth on 26 points, one point behind fourth-placed West Ham United. The pair fell out during their time at Ajax Amsterdam in as a result of their differing characters and have endured a frosty relationship since.
After a patient start on the south coast Southampton gifted the visitors the lead when captain Jose Fonte’s weak back pass was seized upon by van Persie who rounded goalkeeper Fraser Forster before rolling the ball home in the 12th minute. Van Gaal’s side had won their previous four Premier League games before their visit to St Mary’s and their array of attacking players were slick and eye-catching in possession.
However, not for the first time this season their shaky defence, reverted to a back three, looked vulnerable in the face of Southampton’s creative passing and movement. After the hosts had created a number of good chances Pelle fired them level after 31 minutes. United’s towering Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini surrendered possession in midfield and after the ball ricocheted around in the box the Italian pounced with a close-range finish. The Saints began the second half in the ascendancy with Shane Long drawing a sharp stop from the ever-impressive David De Gea before Pelle blazed over.
Robin van Persie hints at Man United exit with ambition to play ‘every week’
The Manchester United star forward has been struggling recently and unfortunately this seems to be an ongoing trend dating back further than just the past twelve games of this season. What does this mean for your Fantasy Premier League team? I will be breaking down some of his statistics and following up with advice for fantasy owners.
London – Robin van Persie scored twice as Manchester United won at Southampton to continue their recent resurgence and climb to third in the Premier League on Monday. The Dutchman scored in.
A total of goals were scored in the group stages, and every nation competing managed to score a goal. But who had the best goals of the tournament? We have extensively compiled the definitive list of the top 10 goals of the World Cup thus far. Miroslav Klose Let’s start with a sentimental one. Germany’s Miroslav Klose — with this equalizer against Ghana on Saturday — scored his 15th goal in a World Cup, officially tying Brazil’s Ronaldo for the most goals scored in a World Cup. Although it’s a tough pill to swallow, you have to admit that this is some beautiful, high stakes soccer.
Cristiano Ronaldo only scored one goal during Portugal’s time in the World Cup, but his cross to Silvestre Varela in the final 30 seconds of their game against the USA on Sunday was magical.
His subsequent Old Trafford switch finally secured him the Premier League title and another top scorer award at that. All that considered, Van Persie’s fall from the top was far more abrupt than people remember. The retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson pulled the rug from underneath his time with United as seasons under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal undercut his goal scoring.
Now at age 34, Van Persie is entering his third season with Fenerbahce in Turkey as he winds out his career under the radar.
LONDON, Dec 8 (Reuters) – Robin van Persie scored twice as Manchester United continued their recent resurgence to climb to third in the Premier League after a victory against Southampton on.
At the age of 13, Robin changed teams, joining Feyenoord, a top club whose players trained more professionally. The fans, at first, were crazy about him. Van Persie became a local hero in no time, and at the national level, he was chosen by his peers as the Dutch Football Talent of the Year for So far, so good.
Then, suddenly, things started going wrong. As quickly as he rose up, his ego and self-confidence got him knocked right back down — and it was his rival on the team, a certain Pierre van Hooydonk, who delivered the blow. On March 31st of that year, there was an embarrassing clash between the two players, right there in front of 50, spectators, when Feyenoord played against RKC.
Robin, only about a month into his time with the team, pushed his older teammate away for a free-kick on the right side of the goal. As a left-footer, he felt that he should be the man in charge. It was a brilliant shot to the top corner that forced the goalkeeper to make an incredible diving save, but Pierre was furious at having his shot stolen, as was their coach Bert van Marwijk. Pierre Van Hooydonk would not forget the humiliation of being one-upped by his new teammate.
He developed an attitude. At practice and on the pitch, the rest of the team grew irritated by the rebellious youngster. International players like Pierre van Hooydonk and Paul Bosvelt set the rules, while kids like Robin were to shut up — or get taken down a peg.

He says I am good, but that I have to be patient. Right away I gave Arsenal my word. I was doing a special training regimen with a guy named Tony, who was ex-Navy… I was dead every night. Pires was injured and played with us in the second team. Robin watched footage after the games to learn so he could analyze his performance. Steve Rowley, the scout who plucked him from Feyenoord, sent him a message after each game.
Rowley told him that something was missing from his game. And it was true — he wasn’t taking risks in the midfield, only around the box. But he had to find that out for himself. Slowly, Robin improved on the pitch, but circumstances in his private life were about to bubble up and ensnare him. Right after winning the FA Cup with Arsenal and his debut with the Dutch national team, Robin found himself plummeting into the worst nightmare of his life.
At the beginning of June , he was arrested in Rotterdam, only days into the offseason.

Having earned much criticism for their defeat, and the manner of it, to Tottenham on Saturday, United were again cut open inside 15 minutes as the Romanian champions took the lead through Greece international Pantelis Kapetanos. After an opening day win against Braga when their opponents had 35 shots on goal, Cluj looked set for another backs-against-the-wall performance as they dropped deep in the early stages. But despite their early dominance, Evra was caught badly out of position as Cluj opened the scoring with an incisive breakaway.
Rafael Bastos exposed Evra with a brilliant cross field pass to find Modou Sougou to take the ball on before whipping a dangerous low ball in to Kapentanos who took advantage of some slack marking and swept the ball first time past David De Gea. After Sougou showed him a clean set of heels again a few minutes later, Evra must have been delighted to see his Senegalese opponent leave the pitch with an injury after just 24 minutes.
Just five minutes later United breathed a sigh of relief as they pulled level. Playing ahead of Anderson and Darren Fletcher in the midfield, Tom Cleverley was starting to find space. After earlier having set up Van Persie for a first time effort that went wide of the post, his short pass connected with Hernandez, whose snap shot went straight at the goalkeeper. Rooney out on the right showed his often underrated vision and passing ability as he produced an inch perfect ball to Van Persie racing clear into the center of the box and the former Arsenal man met it on the volley with a delightful flicked finish past the stranded Felgueiras with his left foot.
With their counter-attacking game plan now undone, the Romanian champions were forced to go forward and for a spell looked dangerous when they did so. Some more slack United defending almost undid their good work as Cadu was allowed a free header from a corner that De Gea had to push over the bar.
