Van Persie training

Despite rumours of a  bust up with David Moyes and a transfer request on Tuesday, Robin Van Persie is set to boost Manchester United with a first team return.

Moyes was coy about the Dutch striker when asked about him during his Friday presser, but Goal.Com have revealed that the striker took part in his first full training session in a month yesterday.

Van Persie hasn’t played since scoring the winner against Arsenal last month and whilst he isn’t confirmed to play against Newcastle in United’s lunchtime kick off time today, the website believe he has a chance and will meet with Manchester United’s medical staff in the morning to discuss how his groin has reacted to the session.

There were rumours at the start of the season that Van Persie wasn’t to enamoured with Moyes’ coaching methods, especially after having his sessions tailored last season to ensure he remained fit. This season he has been plagued by niggling injuries and doesn’t look like the same player that fired United to the title last term.

Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson has somehow got pally with someone at Old Trafford (arf) and secured info of a Van Persie transfer request and leaked it to an Irish radio station… very believable.

I think this is simply a case of the Liverpool man taking advantage of the situation at Old Trafford, with Moyes struggling and being questioned after yet another defeat.

Whilst Lawrenson is a plank, he is no worse than the people that believe him!

    Moyes hasn’t help man utd in any way after kick starting his career as man utd boss.he has prove he is nt a better one so far although all he require is a little more rely upset wit moyes cus he has been the cause of rvp injury.nd his starting eleven has been our major problem this season.our full backs are a big source of our problem.evra regular playing time is a big mistake cus buttner will fit in well in that position cause evra performance has been so far is damaging.

    SOS:Man utd is bigger than Moyes and Felliani and as such, he should be sacked now before it will too late and felliani sold or better still loaned out. We can’t keep watching while our darlyn team continues to crumble

    Sir Alex Ferguson no doubt is one manger i would have wished to remain with Man Utd senior team all his life, but that is not meant to be. However, despite his intimidating feat with the Red Devil, in my opinion he made two quick mistakes towards the end of his managerial career. First, Paul Pogba would have been tied down if not his cold-belief on what the young lad could offer in the mid of the park. I remember vividly our home game against Blackburn on the boxing day in 2011/2012 campaign where he blatantly snubbed Pogba when he had every opportunity to feature in that game. Man Utd not only lost the game, but watched Pogba join the Old Ladies. Second, the appointment of David Moyes, a man who prior to his appointment has not won any trophy with Everton as Utd manager is not only worrisome but suicidal. SAF and the board had tested and trusted coaches around the globe (including Jose) to appoint, but decided to go for one man that has succeeded in making the theatre of dream a complete thing of joke. Moyes’ tactics is had to believe. For instance, his hash training has exposed RVP to series of injury- something he has risen above of late. Also,he chose to make players like my Legend, Rio#5 a mad man. Players got to know very late on the match-day that they will feature in a game. That is absurd. Moyes must reinforce the team in the winter transfer else we may see the worse. I love Man Utd and wouldn’t watch this global brand crumble in the hands of Moyes.

    The problem is the midfield. Cleverly should be playing for a pub team, felliani is out of his depth, giggs is too old but the best midfielder we have. Smalling and Evans make too many mistakes and vidic is getting found out with his lack of pace.

    Moyes needs to strengthen and was let down by the club over the summer for whatever reason. SAF left a title winning team last year but without adding quality to that squad we are too reliant on average or worse than average midfielders. Utd need a player who has the ability to put on that number 7 shirt. We need a special payer to give everyone a lift and who can be our new 7 in midfield.

    Lets give Moyes a chance to see what he brings in. This season may have to be a write off.

    Moyes should been given timeuntil januara and let us see what he can do.

    I’m a massive united fan. It really hurts to see them crumble in this way. But by wanting moyes out we’re making life really hard for him. Every true utd fan shud support moyes and give him time. When SAF first joined as manager, he didn’t have a great first season too? And as for RVP, he can’t betray us fans like that!
