Marky Mark and the funky

Well played on the click baiting Jimmy, and well played Wayne.

Get the fuck in, I am absolutely delighted with this :woohoo:

As much as it would have been nice for him to break the record for most appearances (needed 7 games to do it) and how it would have been a bit of fairytale for him to force his way back infor the world cup (very likely on current form) and bowing out on a high there (very unlikely based on England being shit), this can only benefit us.

Rest up during international breaks, play more for us. He'll probably get some minutes tomorrow now, knowing that he'll have 2 weeks to recover after Chelsea

It's a really sensible decision but it really surprised me.

Rooney has always ran through walls whenever he has played with no regard for the long term effects on his body. He's clearly taking his time here seriously and not the farewell/retirement that others thought it would be.

I wonder if this was already agreed when he joined the club.

DCL can take his place in the squad then.

Fair play to him, hasn't let his heart rule his head. Good decision if he wants to play at this level for another 2-3 years.

Think he's spoke to Southgate and Southgate has told him he wants to continue experimenting with shite like Livermore so he's jacked it

Yeah what's the point in him carrying on with an absolute nobody like southgate in charge pretending to be a football manager. It's be training sessions, flights and sitting on the bench for games waiting for southgate to come to his senses. Who needs that?

That's a very sensible decision.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

Probably been told Defoe will still be picked before him despite warming a bench so far this year

Happy if not surprised. I know they are completely different roles, but you only have to look at Gareth Barry to think about Wayne extending his career into the mid/late 30s. If he looks after his body properly and avoids injuries, he could easily be around for the next 3-4 years.

Slightly worrying the way things are going half our team will be under the tutelage of Southgate shortly if they carry on improving.

New era, new club, big decisions, I think what appears important to him based on this decision is he desperately wants to help bring back silverware to this club before he departs. That's his number one priority.
