He's already been good and he was the best defender on the pitch until his mistake last night.

Or he might prove to be a massive waste of money like so many who have gone before him...... we'll see !!!

This. The penalty was a bit unlucky. He'd done well to block the initial cross and he had to make some sort of follow up challenge. On another day he toes the ball out of play.

you're not bothered about Liverpool fans slating him, so you'll make an article to prove it

Can you give us a shout out on your next video?

He's a good player and probably England's best CB. The issue that most are pointing out is that he isn't an 80 million player, even in today's market.

To be fair when VVD signed for us and made a couple of errors in his first few games, there were plenty of United fans frothing at the mouth with excitement, so I don't think you can complain about getting a bit back.


Wouldn't surprise me if eventually he turns out to be a great signing in a similar manner, however, United's defence hasn't exactly been convincing so far.

worth about 45 mil at best, united played well over the odds

I think Big Blockhead will be OK. He needs a good defender with some pace next to him though. He turns like an oil tanker and has been lucky not to get sent off against us because of this.

You do a lot of gum flapping about Utd, which is a bit strange considering youve won feck all in god knows how long and have started no better than we have.

Why are opposition fans so concerned about our finances? We make more money than anyone else in England. Our financial situation is not for you lot to worry about. Yes we paid over the odds...its done now. Get over it

Hes solid and can win games/points he has a few weaknesses but more strengths id say, overpaid for sure but what can ya do about that, definite improvement either way for utd, not that that was hard but yeah.

Couldnt give a sheite about the mistake last night for England id still pick him, Gomez should be his partner though lets be honest. When hes playing for England ill support him np but we are allowed to banter too 😂.

It's no secret that we overpaid for him. I don't begrudge Leicester for overcharging us, every club in their position would have done the same.

He's here now and while he does have some flaws, he overall improves our defence and puts a presence of calmness there that we were lacking prior to his arrival.

Of course it doesn't help him when our midfield is lacking in quality. Once we can sort out other priority areas, then our team on the pitch can hopefully improve together.

Every man and his dog has expressed reservations over the fee. We've discussed that to death on these boards over the summer. I'm really not sure what the use or reason is for bringing it up now. He's been very good for us so far.

It’s because he made one mistake in an England shirt and all of a sudden he is craaap again. The fickle and pathetic nature of football fans these days

Because other than the exorbitant fee (which everyone was against), there's little else to critique about him towards us.

Like starting an argument...for arguments sake.

I am a big Man Utd fan but even I have to admit that VVD has been as good at Liverpool as Maguire has been at United so far. And that's coming from a big United fan as well btw.

utd pay way over the odds for everyone

People need to go and read comments about VVD in the month after he'd signed. I actually went and did that a couple of months ago, funny stuff. It's easy to act and talk like an expert when you have zero accountability.
