Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has conducted a blunt analysis of England striker Wayne Rooney ahead of the World Cup, suggesting his best may be behind him.
So Wayne Rooney did ask for a transfer request and is indeed contemplating his future with Manchester United..
….for a second time.
Why would Wayne want to leave?
This season Manchester United have proved several things.
The first thing is that you need top class cover in every single position to win the league, and we have it.
Ever since stating he wished to leave Manchester United back in 2010, Wayne Rooney has never been too far away from speculation linking him with a move away from Old Trafford.
There is no doubting his ability as a footballer, and what he can do to opponents on his day.
Despite some fine performances this season it would be fair to say that Danny Welbeck’s inclusion as one of six nominees’s for the PFA Young Player award has certainly raised a few eyebrows.
Many fans and pundits have been surprised to see Danny included as the forward has only scored once in the Premier League this season and hasn’t started anywhere near the same amount of games that the other nominees - excluding Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere – have.
One more victory, one more precious three points, and what has seemed inevitable for weeks will become a reality. Manchester United have claimed the 20th top division crown, which has now given the club a two title lead over great rivals Liverpool.
And Manchester City may well return with a strong assault next season, but the hinted power shift from red to blue appears once again premature.
So would a £17m Andy Carroll improve Manchester United?
It seems a ridiculous idea I know, but so did the purchase of Eric Cantona at the time. Of course nobody in their right mind would confuse the enigmatic, technically gifted Frenchman with the battering ram that is the ponytailed Geordie but consider for a moment the potential.
As has been so often the case down the years when England slump to a disappointing result, a Manchester United player unfairly gets singled out for blame.
After the fall out of Roy Hodgson’s side’s 1-1 draw in Podgorica against Montenegro, some England ‘supporters’ decided to lay the blame fully on Danny Welbeck for the team dropping two points.
As the buzzards gathered to pick clean the bones of the Rooney-Ferguson relationship last Tuesday night, it was appropriate and slightly poetic that the Buzzcocks rendition of 'should I stay or should I go ?' belted out over the Old Trafford loudspeaker before the team was announced, devoid of Wayne.
Manchester United beat QPR 2-0 at Loftus Road yesterday and it was a comprehensive win.
Set on their way by a wonder goal from Rafael (you sure he’s a Right Back!?), United overcame the blow of Robin van Persie’s first-half substitution through a hip injury to go on and win the game via a Ryan Giggs goal. Here are the five talking points from the match:
Why are some Manchester United supporters so trigger happy shooting down emerging talent from the youth academy set up?
Why are some so quick to dismiss youth,insisting on bringing in overseas players instead?
