So yesterday we saw a game completely without Rooney, and played everyone in their preferred positions. I genuinely didn't see too much of a difference too be honest, no real encouraging signs that without him, we could achieve this illusive "balance".
Are we a better team with him or without him? And where do you think he should play?
I've been relatively pleased with how Wayne has played since he's came back, often looking like the only player who can make something happen, as well as a few goals. Personally I think he plays best behind the striker, but nowadays that "No10" role is dead. Players need to be able to do more than just link the play from midfield to attack. A luxury if you will. So I'd like to see us play a midfield 3 of Beni/Davies (Fuck off Morgan) Gana and Rooney, with the left sided midfielder drifting in and occupying that No10 role when necessary.
