Crested two chances todayAnyone else create anything?
There's this bizarre impression people have that if Rooney somehow stayed up top, we'd be scoring way more goals. Never mind the fact we had DCL doing exactly that, and only had one chance the whole game. A chance that came about because Rooney had dropped deep. The reason Rooney comes deep is the help create play that leads to chances. Him standing up top whilst our midfield fail to string two meaningful passes together and retain possession won't do much good.
What would you prefer him to do? Stay up top and be isolated?
Let me try again. You're criticising Rooney for his movement on the pitch. What specific changes would you like to see him make and why would that improve how we play?
He's not better than barkley, coleman or bolasie. He's probably better than anything we can currently field which is frightening because he's not actually very good anymore
