    100 percent would be a Fergie signing.
    Top option to have in your squad.

    What’s wrong with the post?

    Would have loved Vardy at Utd. Should have stepped in when Leicester accepted the £30m bid from Arsenal and he turned them down.

    Would have been a far bigger success than Lukuku.

    Agree, always thought if Fergie had stayed we'd have been in for him the same summer that Arsenal almost signed him.

    Not sure about being a top option.

    But you're right,
    Vardy is just like one of Fergie's typical type of signing.

    Don't think we should sign him now though, no Fergie to fully make use of him, among many other reasons.

    I think he's overrated. He's a good striker, but questions remain about his ability to perform when there is little space for him to run into. Isn't that part of why Puel got so much flack, because moving away from a counter-attacking approach stymied Vardy?

    He would be a good rotation option for most top 6 sides except City and Arsenal but that's about it. Extraordinary record against the top 6 but that alone doesn't make you a top striker.

    you really haven't watched have you, Puel wasn't slated for moving away from counter attacking, Rodgers doesn't have us counter attacking, he was slateds because Vardy was isolated and we played at a snail's pace

    I haven't! That is why it was a question. I also asked you a few days ago about the difference between Puel and Rodgers.

    Nonchalantly scoring the winner...
    If you're referencing the increasing number of scouse WUMs on here masquerading as United fans and making out they 'don't care' whether Liverpool or City win the PL, defending Woodward's daft decisions etc then fair enough...

    If not, you're speaking for a tiny minority on here.

    If he's so easy to stop then why don't teams stop him? In the last four seasons, he's scored 24, 13, 20 and 18 PL goals, despite only playing in a top six side for one of those seasons. The season he scored 13 was the one in which Leicester were nearly relegated, every season that he's played in a decent side he's been a prolific scorer. And the one season that he did play in a top six side, he broke the consecutive games scoring record. He also scored international goals against Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Turkey and Wales. Not bad for someone who's easy to stop.

    I didn't say he was easy to stop.

    He is a good striker. Actually, he's a very good striker, I'll give you that. I do think he is overrated because of the proportion of goals that come against the top 6.

    He'll have a field day tomorrow. Who was the last opposition player to get a hat-trick at OT?

    Was it that fat lad at Inter? That was Fergies last game, not sure if there has been one since?

    Ah - then I can’t remember anyone scoring a hat-trick against us since fat Ronaldo for Real Madrid and that was more than 15 years ago. I sure someone has..?

    Just checked, some Dennis Bailey (QPR) was the last one to get one at OT in the league in 1992. Vardy will join an exclusive list tomorrow.

    Only Bentley, Kuyt, Eto'o and Lukaku have scored hat-tricks vs United in the PL era.
