Falcao made 25 million in CAD doing jack crap.

He did score like twice... My second biggest disappointment this year as a United fan after di Maria, these 2 players aren't built for the Prem League

Falcao was straight up money thrown down the sewer. Such a waste and agree he can't play in the EPL. As for ADM, I wouldn't jump to that conclusion just yet. Yea his first year was underwhelming but I think it had to do with a lot of factors outside of him with LVG and the team etc. I'm hopeful he'll be more comfortable next campaign and he'll bounce back.

Falcao was coming off a major injury.  Still underwhelmed this season but it takes a good while to get back to the dangerous form that he had.  i think by January 2016, he will start to look like the old Falcao.


Di Maria is suffering from Mesut Ozil syndrome.  Leave the team where you were seen as the "key", become the actual "key" elsewhere, and struggle to make the same amount of impact.  Now, I will agree that the PL is different from La Liga but in both cases, both players have gone from a top class supporting cast to teams that are a step below.


In Arsenal's case, it's really only Sanchez that's in the same class as Ozil, although Santi Cazorla played like a top-class midfielder this year.  Everyone else, at their best, is still an echelon below.  Understandable, it's harder to make an impact.


United could argue that Mata, Di Maria, Rooney, RVP, and the aforementioned Falcao, are all the same tier of player.  But RVP took several steps back, Falcao hugely out of form, and Mata got rag-dolled around the midfield.  Really only Rooney for Di Maria this season.

^Mata really showed he was worth what United paid for him this year.

Was almost as good for them as he was in his Chelsea days.
