I am saying the "excuse" for Rooney needing to be in the XI because "he has the most goals" is silly.
DCL is the best center forward option we have at present, all things considered. Not even close. And we owe it to ourselves to TRY a run of matches with Sigurdsson behind him.
It's not just cos of the goals tho, it's his link up play, the fact he can hold up play, win fouls, gain us yards up the pitch, pick a pass.
Dcl is not the best option, he should be blooded in as he is only twenty and asking him to lead a front line is ridiculous.
Solanke at Liverpool, who incidentally won player if the tournament at the world's, comes on a sub for a Liverpool side that plays no centre forward.
Sigurdsson has offered fuck all really, why does he deserve more time than rooney?
We can't play for the future when we are in the bottom three, we need to play for now so imo rooney plays as he is our only serious goal threat.
