Semi-protected edit request on 20 March 2014[edit]

Please change Goals scored in Europe in 2013-14 to 4 because Robin van Persie scored a hattrick against Olympiakos on 19 March 2014. 115.124.45.45 (talk) 09:54, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Premier League Player of the Month[edit]

At the top of the page it says Van Persie has been named Premier League player of the month 3 times, but on the wiki page for award it says he's been named that FIVE times.

It should be changed from three to five. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.232.81.50 (talk) 18:16, 29 March 2014 (UTC)

Van Persies international goals[edit]

There were statistics about RVP-s international goals in Netherlands football team by the years and by the opposition. He is Netherlands all time goalscorer, so I think someone should bring this information back.--Woodmana (talk) 12:18, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 19 May 2014[edit]

In the introduction of this article, I found the following sentence: "He is recognized as one of the best strikers in the world". Shouldn't recognized be recognised, since this page is concerning a Dutch footballplayer, currently playing ten years in England. It is my belief that this page has more affinity with England, than with the United States, so British spelling should be used.

It's something small, but I think it's important.

Yes check.svg Done - the article is primarily in UK English e.g. DMY format for dates. - Arjayay (talk) 14:14, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Subject of internet meme during 2014 world cup[edit]

BBC has picked up on a new internet meme regarding Mr vanPersie. Time will tell if it is notable, but it certainly adds a verifiable detail to the player's bio. http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-27885833 192.182.208.135 (talk) 14:29, 18 June 2014 (UTC) 192.182.208.135 (talk) 14:29, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Please change 46 goals to 47 goals because he has just now scored another goal for his country Vishnuvbalaji (talk) 20:48, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done - by another - Arjayay (talk) 16:57, 13 July 2014 (UTC)


edit request on 3 September 2014[edit]

Please change his senior appearances and goals for Manchester United in the sidebar/information box to his league games and goals as currently they show his record in all competitions.
