<Insert “flying Dutchman” pun here>

Spain 1-5 Holland. We can honestly say we didn’t see that coming!

While we’re on the subject, we’ve said it before and we’ll doubtless say it again, but there is no player with better finishing technique in world football than Robin van Persie.

Clamp your looking gear round this beauty…

Absolutely bloody outstanding.

      Don’t worry, each Dutch hero shall receive their due!

    If he did that with 2.5 world class players, some youngsters, and role players, I can’t wait to see what he has in store for United. Get that man a midfield, Woodward!

  6. adhikapp says:

    If he can make Vlaar, Martins Indi, and de Vrij look superb, there is not doubt Van Gaal could do that with Smalling, Jones, and Evans.

    Surprised this didn’t get instantly totted into your “Great World Cup Goals” collection.

  8. Wesley says:

    I was positively surprised by our line of defence yesterday, but no, I’m sorry, Jones, Evans and Smalling are just never gonna work for United ;)
