not at all. why have a striker who isn't getting goals and doing nothing else for the team on the pitch. play falcao up front, rooney, di maria and mata behind and you can have two midfielders protecting the leaky defense.


oh when the saints go marching in, oh when the saints go marching in......

.
there's a difference between just running around and running with a purpose. rooney is very stupid and has no first touch, so he makes a mistake and then charges around trying to make up for it. people look at this and mistake it for 'passion' and 'effort', because english football is stupid, whereas in actual fact he destroys a team shape, demands that everything go through him and is not nearly as good as he thinks he is.

all the raw power and aggression he had as a young player has coalesced into an average player who does just enough to keep his place while damaging the team as a unit. and he's thick.

ferguson was right to try and get shot of him.

edit: also lol @ arsenal

I was calling for it back when all these writers kept saying that 3 strikers had to all play together, just sayin'.

it sounds like something that someone would say if they definitely had murdered someone in a human sacrifice ritual

Yeh but cmon, we got a snowball's chance in hell of getting a result at Old Trafford. I predict a rampant 4-0 backlash.

Valencia and Downing (he's on form right now) will terrorise our non-defence. If we win it'll be 4-3.

United won't win after their capitulation last week but who am I to predict after thinking we'd do well in the Championship?

Marseille have done absolutely class to start. If Bielsa guides them to winning Ligue 1 I'll lose my shit. Hoping he can make it beyond just one successful season for once.
