United had his best years but we had those times when he made the break through and was so exciting, and you can't take that away.  I'm really excited about Wayne coming home.  There's an honesty about it knowing he's one of us and so are his family.  And yeah - that first goal he scores back at Goodison will be special.

I'm impressed with how fit he looks. That's important, otherwise it might all fall flat. That would be hard to take.

Koeman articulating what a few have been saying on here for months...

http://www.evertonfc.com/news/2017/07/09/koeman-weve-got-a-winner

Quote
Ronald Koeman has emphasised Wayne Rooney’s “experience, winning mentality and ambition” as the key reasons behind his decision to bring England’s all-time leading goalscorer back to Everton from Manchester United on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The Everton manager is excited by the possibility of a player of Rooney’s stature and history of winning titles coming into his squad, which has already been strengthened this summer by the arrivals of Jordan Pickford – in a Club-record deal for a fee of £25million potentially rising to £30million – Dutch international midfield player Davy Klaassen from Ajax for €27million, former Barcelona striker and Spain Under-21 international Sandro Ramirez, Henry Onyekuru, the Belgian Pro League’s joint-top goalscorer last season who will spend the 2017/18 season on loan at Anderlecht, and England international defender Michael Keane, also for a fee potentially rising to £30million.

Rooney’s homecoming represents the sixth signing of the summer by the Blues and the Everton manager has no doubt about what the 31-year-old Rooney will add to the team.

“Wayne has shown me that ambition that we need and that winning mentality – he knows how to win titles and I’m really happy he’s decided to come home,” Koeman said.

“He loves Everton and he was desperate to come back. He is still only 31 and I don’t have any doubts about his qualities. It’s fantastic he’s here.

“It’s all about his fitness and his desire, but he has shown me that ambition that we need. He knows how to win titles, as I said. No-one in the team except Gareth Barry and Davy Klaassen [in the Eredivisie] have won titles. The Under-20s are World Champions but not in the Premier League. He is that player. And don’t forget the experience he will give to the rest of the team.

“Wayne, of course, is still competitive – he will be a competitor always – and he wants to play at the highest level that is possible for him. We have spoken several times about Everton and what we are striving to achieve.

“That’s really interesting for Wayne and a lot of football players and, of course, in the situation of Wayne he was here at the beginning when he was young player for Everton. It’s his home and he likes that competition, he likes that pressure. I’m really happy that he finally decided to come back.

“His main quality is his quality on the ball, his experience and what I describe as his winning mentality. Everybody knows he can play out of different positions up front. He’s a smart player. He’s an experienced football player and that helps everybody.

“We have a lot of young players and sometimes in life you need somebody who you look up to, who you learn from. That was also one of the messages when we spoke about on and off the pitch what his function will be in the team.

“One of the functions for Wayne is to show the rest of the team why he is - and still is - that player.”

Great video. Am well on board now. Not sure what I was thinking.

Fuck me I can't WAIT for the season to get started.

Genuinely don't think I've been this excited about a new season before.

And all this just 2 years after Roberto's Everton had me worried that I'd fallen out of love with football forever.

You know he's going straight over to BigDunk for that Celabration.... Lukaku lacks class, perfect club for him, this windows showing our distinct wealth of class from top to bottom! What to be a fly on the wall in Barkley's gaff..

What a lift to the whole place, not just the younger members of the squad but imagine the U23's and U18's etc walking in to training and here's Wayne Rooney wandering around the place. You'd be like a dog with 2 cocks. :)

Wonder if there was any Moyes banter as he got his tour of USMFF
