A tribute to Taylor Swift’s Red49 plays
“The man who wears the club number 20 is the man who led Manchester United to their 20th title reign”
I’m not a fan of Man. United just to be clear, but I am a fan of Robin van Persie. Waking up at 3 am to watch him play against and completely dominate Aston Villa was worth it. 3 incredible goals were scored in the first half, all leading to yet another Championship title.
The last time I watched a United game was against rival Man City, and their form was terrible. You could see it in Rooney’s eyes the frustration he felt after Sergio Aguero scored in the 78th minute.
“It was goal of the century for me from Robin van Persie. It was marvellous - the technique with his head down, over the ball and just perfect timing. It was a magnificent strike.He has been unbelievable, his early form was fantastic. He had a dry spell, as most strikers do, but he has come back from that and he was unbelievable tonight.” - Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson
I may hate you for leaving Arsenal, but I admit, I got teary eyed when you led Manchester United to victory. All photos from Zimbio | Manchester United v Aston Villa, April 23, 2012
