Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Van Persieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Maybe Valencia winning all those awards last season and being the stand out player has put pressure on him and thus, he's nervous when he plays now as he feels he has high expectations on him. That is only a guess though but he's no where near beast level this season. Hhopefully this is just a minor blip and his form picks up again.
Glad to hear we had a great first half but like Seabs said, we need to have ONE match where we perform for the entire 90 minutes. I'm sick and tired of us dominating, getting a couple of goals and then we stop playing and allow the opposing team to get back into it. This has got to stop as it has been going on for a few seasons now when we always used to kill off games. Losing the cleansheet was disappointing as De Gea really needs/deserves one after his last few performances.
Vidic being back is great to see.
Still, a win is a win. Swansea will be a very tough test next.
