Kinda surprised there is no Rooney thread yet.
I wasn't a fan of him coming back, I thought he started very brightly but has since lapsed into what I mostly expected...some good moments but overall not convinced he's what we need in the starting XI.
Yup looks exactly as I feared he would.
I admit I got swept up in it all but my heads back on now and it's demonstrably clear he's finished.
Still a technically good player but not physically capable of playing the role he plays which is - go everywhere and do whatever you want.
We need a striker to play a system and a ten to supply him, not one fella doing half of both while also thinking he's Paul scholes and stepping on the toes of three of four other players in the process.
Sometimes good players need to be sacrificed for the good of the system, which is why one of fergusons parting gifts was to start phasing out Wayne Rooney.
