VP has hit a goal drought. Started well but has been distinctly lacking recently. I dont think he is declining, I think he will always be a useful player (injuries allowing) but it would be amusing if he never gets past the 15 goals a season from next season onwards. It would merely prove that Wenger sold another of our more senior players at the perfect time.
At the moment I think it is safe to say he sold him at the absolute worst time and handed what is supposed to be a major competitor the PL title by selling him to Man U and I would argue that RVP won Man U the title so as far as business acumen goes I am sure some PR and Accountants can show that investing 20some million to win the PL is a good investment. Could we invest 25 and win the PL any time soon?
What would amuse me more is if Wenger could find a 15 goal striker for us. If we had replaced RVP with a decent striker we would not be fighting for a CL spot right now but we would be comfortably in 3rd or even 2nd.
