It's a tough one. He's a contradiction.  He's actually scoring, and creating. But at the same time he does seem to not help our attacking play or overall performance.

For the record, I would go 2 up top, rotate the minutes between DCL, Sandro, and Rooney pretty much equally.  If Rooney can't maintain his position and keeps butting heads with Sigurdsson, I will give his minutes to Mirallas or God help me, Niasse I guess.

I don't see Unsworth doing it. I really don't.

I wanted Rooney here, but in more sparsely used role. I did not want what we're seeing, and I think he came here because he wanted to keep playing full time and, unfortunately, I think we actually offered it to him.

I would love for rooney to play as our striker, but the problem is is he doesn't play in his position. He comes back to mid field to get the ball and there's 3 players stepping on each others toes with the opposition laughing at how easy it is to defend. He did with United a few seasons back and they looked terrible. This isn't a coincidence.
