Ah Wayne Rooney, what a great player he WAS. He peaked at about 24 years of age and declined slowly from that point onwards.
He became a hindrance to the Mancs & when we came calling they practically threw him at us, as part of a deal in which we gave them our best player & one of the worlds best strikers for a pittance of his true worth.
If Coutinho was worth 140+M & M'Bappe 166M then what was Lukaku's real price?
Embarrassing business from the knobs who run the club

We were a bit unlucky with the window in terms of Lukaku. We sold early for decent money, even without hindsight I thought we could've waited for 100 up front, as there wasn't much downside to keeping him longer. The way the window has gone (this is with hindsight, even with a year left he'd probably have fetched close to what we got from him still). However, yes had we waited we could've easily got another 30 mil or so.

To compound our issues though, we ended up paying post-Neymar prices for Sigurdsson so it was a bit of a double whammy, we got hosed on both ends.

Give me eleven Wayne Rooneys, anyday

We'd have 11 number tens, strung out across the half way line..

I actually like Rooney, just wish he stayed uptop if he is the main striker, wouldnt mind him behind 2 central strikers, but most seem to dislike him dropping back., but thats not on him, he needs help in the forward positions, thats down to Koeman to pick a formation/team, so he doesnt feel like he has to drop back to collect the ball.

He's an easy target.

He was the scapegoat for a poor England side when he was probably the best player, and the same is happening here.

Never hiding, constant trying to make a difference and actually try things, which is more than can be said for the absolute crabs around him.

Sometimes I think that's the issue, he tries too much. He's everywhere bar his position, you're possibly right about England.

lol, that skip/jump shit felt like he was to embarrassed to celebrate.

in other news, Rooney has found his feet.
