Made up to see him back, that goes without saying, but I think people expected an awful lot from him, though he may have been able to do a little more than he has.

Wanted him to sign and really glad that he's here - next mission, take those coaching badges

He cannot do a lot wrong in my book

Home, sweet home!

Can't be faulted for effort but he is suffering with the rest of the team. The season will even out in the next couple of months and he'll play a part in our improvement.
Be nice if we could encourage and support the team in the meantime.
I honestly think he may hold us back during any revival . I'd rather let sig have a run as the main man and sadly it doesn't seem that we function well as a team with the both in there. Hes simply not mobile enough to play up front either and generally slows the play.

Still think him and DCL have been our best players this season.

That might be true Christ though it would show how utterly shite we have been. Niasse in 3rd probably having played about 40 minutes as a sub?

I think rooney is a good player who plays well but ultimately it's at the detriment to the wider system.

I would rather a worse player capable of being positionally astute and sticking to a job, rather than roaming about spraying balls and trying to do everything.

The minute he started to do that at united they dropped him, and it's showing more and more why. Younger players defer to him because he's a natural leader, but his drive to be on the ball as much as humanely possible is eroding whatever system we have in place.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I really don't know how to vote.

I wanted him here, but just not in such an important role where every ball has to go through him. It's the fuckin Wayne Rooney show out there.

I didn't want that.

I'm convinced he's in the way tbh(despite his occasions of quality)..would love to see a couple of games without him being the focal ....have a feeling the team would come alive without him ....super sub role.?.

I think he wanted that, I think he feels bad he left when he did, (on a personal level, not on a career level) hence why he is trying to do everything, i kinda feel sorry for him.
The only real things in this reality are how perspective is perceived and eventual death...

Thought he could revitalise himself and give something to the team

He hasn't

The team is hardly in any shape or form to give him any impetus. He's working his bollocks off and getting nowhere. Personally, I'll draw conclusions as to whether he's making an impact if, or when the team ever gets into any sort of acceptable form. Every player is being held back, with the exception of Niasse, Tom Davies, Calvert Lewin and Vlasic. Michael Keane has also been producing up until the two or three games before the injury. It's not Rooney's fault we're playing like eleven strangers.
Steinbeck's maxim: “Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.”.

Already fed up of seeing him taking the ball in line with our centre halves. Where this 'game intelligence' that he's meant to bring? Can he not see how detrimental that is?

Also, stay wide and give us some width when there's loads of number 10s playing. His lack of positional discipline is awful. Essentially he puts his own ego and desire to get on the ball ahead of the team's needs, like a youth team player with very little awareness.

I'm still happy that he has signed for us and think he could be a very useful player for us, however Everton needs to come up with a system to best utilise him whilst getting the most out of other players. Plus, just because he's Wayne Rooney, it doesn't mean he has a God-given right to start every game and play the full 90 minutes - at least during the Bournemouth game Koeman had the guts to take him off when things weren't working.

He took him off in the Bounemouth game because of an eye injury.

Pretty much as I expected on the field and in the media.

Anyone know if he's effected our social media numbers?
