Robin Van Persie.

Everyone knows his quality so its a mystery to me as to why he has performed so badly during these Euros. I know he was injured but he has had sufficent time to recover and that anyway cannot excuse his absurd lack of form. Apart from being involved in the goal of the tournament (which he did his best to miss), he has been woeful. No runs, no pace or penetration. Even his freekicks have been terrible.

What a disappointment.

Edit: Admin, please delete the other thread. Thanks.

Van Persie was crap and he wasn't shy from showing it. Acting like he is the f**king new Zidane with everyball trying to do trickes, dribble players and shoot from no where and failed each time miserably. That FK he blasted would've been a goal 8 out of 10 times if Schnider took it.. but no the new Zidane wanted to prove a point.

f**king irritating prick.

I believe Van Persie would have played better without Van Nistelrooy in the team, he doesn't enjoy having a target forward playing infront of him, one of the reasons Arsenal sold Henry in my opinion.

Sneijder looked like he thought he was the best player in the world with those shots, reality hurts though.

So you can only take those types of shots if you're the best player in the world?!

Forgot about him. Useless as well. That miss has to be up there with Kanu's a few year ago.

erm, not obviously, but there were better options than to shoot from those distances, my point is that he must have thought he was some Platini to expect to score with those efforts.

Van der Vaart i suppose for Holland. the role behind the striker is probably the best you can have for a midfielder but it just didn't work for him this tournament.
