"Is RVP's United Run Near End?" Sorry bud, but you must admit that article is flawed all the way through. From the opening paragraph, to the ridiculous poll question.
Read some of your other articles & enjoyed them, but this is...... worthy of a Man City fanzine.
Do you watch la liga ?
"So Roo and Tev were a great partnership? They had many games where they played well, but were they a partnership in the classical manner - say like Yorke and Cole? I dont think so."
but nowhere in your article does it specify that the partnership had to be a "classic" one, so that argument isn't valid. there have been 3 seasons where rooney and an attacking teammate (or partner, if you will) both finished in the top 10 goal scorers for the season. in 2005-06, van Nistelrooy was 2nd with 21, rooney 4th at 16, the next year, CR7 took 3rd with 17, rooney 4th with 14, and in 2008-08, CR7 finished 2nd with 18 and Rooney tied for 6th with 12.
the numbers don't lie, rooney is completely capable of playing in a strike partnership and the fact is, your basic premise that rooney can't play in a partnership is flat-out wrong. you're trying to retroactively change the meaning of your words by inserting the "classical" qualifier, but that was not your initial argument.
Good article about the 6 things United needs. It really has me pondering now. It's good to see a fan who admits Carrick has not been in form all season. I look forward to more articles.
Many thanks Noah
It's nice to see another writer who supports Manchester United! Hopefully you like it here at B/R and I"m excited to read more of your work!
