@lfcfan....I'm just hoping he doesn't bite someone in order to get out the club, that really would be embarrassing.

more wishful thinking from Liverpool fans. I know it hurts that you couldn't either afford or lure him yourselves, and if Real had been interested they would have put up. But they already blew their load this year. FFP finally shows it has some teeth. We are in the driving seat on this transfer, if we get back into CL then i'm sure we can be the ones who choose.

In all fairness, I fully expect Falcao to be on top form as he wants to play his way to Real next summer. This season is just a fitness exercise for Falcao to let Real know he's still got it.

@slowgraffiti RvP cost circa. £27m, Falcao's loan cost £6m for the year, the media have decided to include wages as part of the cost of all United's transfers this summer for some reason, despite the fact that they don't do so for any other clubs. RvP still has plenty left to offer, he never relied on pace to score goals so age won't hinder him the way it did to Owen for example, he's off form right now, but that's all it is, form, Moyes ruins strikers, I said it when he was at Everton, but bad coaching can be reversed, not after 3 matches, but things will change at United, massively if not rapidly.

Van Persie would be better off upping his work rate and showing more interest in playing

Why is he referred to as former Arsenal star? How is that relevant to the story? Oh yeah, just realised it was on the back of "surgery expected to keep him out for a large part of the season". I get it now.

Falcao will probably be content to play when RVP is injured...

Who cares?

Wenger, and probably Alex Ferguson as well, knew that RvP had one stellar season left in the locker. Arsenal cashed in, and Man U won the title. But from everything that's been seen since then - last season and the first few games on this season - RvP is a shadow of the striker he was. At 31, you'd have to think that he will naturally move down the pecking order and become more of an impact sub at some stage.

Those sound like the words of a man whose price was as much as another's fee just to be borrowed for a year. Odd that he says the surgery idea surprised him with 'imagination' - it is hardly a surprise to hear of a 31 year old footballer with a long history of injury to require surgery to prevent another. Especially when said footballer also at one point paid a quack to rub horse placenta on his knee.
