Fear not United fans. Despite all the upheaval at Old Trafford in the summer, with the departure of the master Sir Alex Ferguson and the arrival of the apprentice David Moyes, Manchester United still possess the capabilities to add title number 21 to their list of Premier League accolades. True, United have not been firing on all cylinders in the league and have struggled against teams like West Bromwich Albion, Southampton, and Stoke City, but there have been signs in recent weeks that the tide is beginning to turn. The victory against league leaders Arsenal, although through a somewhat fortuitous goal, was one of the very significant Football results in the Premier League so far this season.
Entries in Wayne Rooney (246)
Wayne Rooney is one of the most recognisable football players in the Premier League, perhaps even Europe, but with opinion split of the Scouser across the country, people have reacted differently to wish wishes to leave Manchester United. Chelsea are said to be interested, so to Arsenal and Bayern Munich, but at the time of writing Rooney is still a United player and will be trying to dislodge last season's top scorer Robin van Persie.
Word on the street is that chubby, hairless striker Wayne Rooney is wanted by Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, but should the Blues really be making an offer for the Manchester United man? Before I proceed, just how factual these rumours are, I have no idea. But here are three reasons why I think the move wouldn't suit either party.
So last Friday David Moyes and his Captain gave their first press conference and quite a performance it was, but what did we learn ?
Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement, David Moyes was named as his successor, Paul Scholes also brought down the curtain on his Manchester United career for the second and final time, and in other football news a certain Scouse lad who goes by the name of Wayne Rooney, once again stated his desire to leave the club, proving that lightening can strike twice in the same place, it's groundhog day.
Manchester United is bigger than any one man, and so the events of the last week bring change at our Club while the Reds go marching on.
The only constant in football is change and so none of this surprises me.
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?
At the start of the 2012/13 season teams and players begin with hope and expectations and I thought it would be interesting to review the players who least met expectations this season.
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.
Astonished, ashamed and disappointed, these are just a few clean words I can conjure up to describe my feelings about the growing popularity of the Premier League half and half scarf, it's a sad symbolisation of how football and supporters in general, have changed over the last twenty years or so.
