Rant Cast 138 – ORVP magic

On Rant Cast this week we look back on Robin van Persie’s piece of magic against West Ham United in the FA Cup third round – a goal made in Cardiff and finished in Rotterdam, long to be held in the memory. van Persie’s was a strike that saved United’s hopes and dreams in the Cup.

Also on this week’s show: we talk January transfers, with Sir Alex Ferguson angry about one young player’s move to Tottenham Hotspur, while another pair move on the Peterborough United on loan. Nothing like a bit of nepotism for the soul. Meanwhile, Chelsea and Liverpool make moves in the transfer market and rumours abound.

We take your Twitter questions and look ahead to two games in the coming week. First, the fixture with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, and then the return Cup fixture with the Hammers.

    Funny that all three of us forgot about Gareth Bale for best LM in the world. My non-La Liga World XI for 2012 would be:

    GK: Buffon
    DEF: Lahm, Kompany, Chiellini, Baines
    MID: Silva, Pirlo, Y. Toure
    FWD: v. Persie, Ibrahimovic, G. Bale
