Wayne Rooney Returns To Old Trafford. So What?

When we were regulars in the Stretford End, Bobby Charlton was scoring the goals that would lead to him becoming the club’s top scorer. He was a model professional and never a moment’s trouble to his manager or, as far as we are aware, his wife.

Denis Law was “The King” and, to our knowledge, only rocked the United boat once over a pay rise he thought he deserved. Matt Busby disagreed and transfer-listed him. That was the one and only time Law caused any problem, insignificant as it was, for his club. He has also not caused any problems for his wife, again, as far as we are aware.

George Best caused problems for his club, his manager, his wives, his girlfriends, his parents, but most of all, for himself and, eventually, lost his life because of those problems. He will always be remembered by United fans because he was a world class player and brought so much to the club during his short time there.

All three of the above have been named “European Footballer of the Year”, Wayne Rooney hasn’t even come close.

So let’s stop all this nonsense surrounding the return of the overrated scouser to Manchester United. He is not, and never has been, anything more than a good player. He was never world class and will never be fit to lace George Best’s boots, either at football or at problem causing.

There is some debate about whether or not a statue should be erected, in his honour, outside the club. If this happens then Manchester United will have officially gone mad. To even think about elevating him to the same level as the trinity is appalling. The idiots dreaming up these stupid ideas must be the same idiots who label Quinton Fortune and Jesper Blomqvist as “Mancheseter United legends“. Get a life, but first, get a brain!

He is NOT returning home. His home is, and always was, Liverpool. He has always loved Everton and even wore Everton pyjamas during his time at United, demonstrating for the umpteenth time, what a mature and well -rounded person he is.

Manchester United made Wayne Rooney, it was not the other way round. Thanks to his time at the club he has become a multi-millionaire. Thanks to his good fortune in being involved in some great TEAMS, he has picked up many trophies and medals.

He was made captain of the club and, shortly afterwards, he was made captain of his country. Both mistaken and totally misguided decisions but, at the time, the two managers would tell you that they had little choice, if they were honest about it.

In return for all the wealth, fame and silverware he has received Rooney has scored an average of less than twenty goals per season, a very unremarkable achievement, even though he operated as the main striker for eleven years.

He has held the club to ransom on two occasions and, on both of those occasions, the club caved in to his demands for a longer and more lucrative contract. That was the club’s mistake, not his. He should have been sold both times.

He dallied with a prostitute at one stage and, whilst away with England and in a drunken stupor, gatecrashed a hotel wedding.

As if to prove that he wasn’t just a total idiot whilst playing for United and England he has very quickly moved to show the world that he can be just as stupid now that he is back at his boyhood club.

Arrested by police in the early hours of the morning, he was found to be drunk and driving a car belonging to a girl he had spent the evening chatting up. He was obviously taking her home for whatever mysterious motive he may have had and, yet again, Rooney had some explaining to do to his wife and his manager.

Since this incident Everton, coincidentally, have fallen apart and have lost at home to Tottenham Hotspur 0-3 in the Premier League and away to Atalanta 3-0 in the Europa League.

These results are not attributable directly to Rooney who has played no better nor worse than any of his team mates and supporters will hope that the problem is rectified before they visit Old Trafford.

If it isn’t they will lose again, probably by 3-0

    If Giggs, Cantona, Vidic, Bruce, Pallister, Scholes, Keane, Robson, Beckham etc…. don’t have a statue why should he have one? All the medals came because he played with good team mates and his goalscoring record because he was in the first team from the age of 18. Individualy he doesn’t have anything of relevance. He has never been best European player. Rooney scored 253 goals for Manchester United, Ronaldo 400 for Real Madrid and Messi 500 for Barcelona.
