Ricky van Wolfswinkel: Confident of Premier League impact

Van Wolfswinkel completed his move from Sporting Lisbon on Monday when an £8.5m deal agreed in March was finally rubber-stamped on the first day of the transfer window.

The Holland striker scored 15 times for the Portuguese side last season and reckons he can boost the attacking threat of a side that managed just 41 goals in 38 league games.

"I'm glad to be here and can't wait to get started," Van Wolfswinkel told reporters. "This is the perfect move for me.

"I had two great years at Sporting and I think I did a really good job there and did those fans proud.

"All the Dutch players that have played in the Premier League told me that this was the league to be in.

"Of course I can (score goals). There is nothing more important for me."

Manager Chris Hughton backed his new striker to make a smooth transition to English football.

"I'm confident he can keep up his scoring record," Hughton said. "RVW is used to scoring goals andm sure he can adapt to the Premier League.

"It's a different game now and a lot of overseas players have come to the league recently and adapted very well.

"We're really looking forward to seeing him out there. Ricky wants to do well and he recognises his responsibility."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
