Rooney Doubtful For Fulham Game

Rooney Doubtful For Fulham Game

Wayne Rooney's return, unusually, is delayed over and over again. He missed our last six competitive games and will definitely miss the seventh one, the FA Cup tie at Derby on Sunday as he's had a setback with his hamstring injury in training.

Rooney was expected to be available for the game against Everton, then for the visit at Upton Park and it looked certain that he'll at least be involved at Derby. Now, however, it is uncertain whether he'll be fit to face Fulham a week from today which is worrying - we're missing him very much I feel.

Jonny Evans and Patrice Evra, on the other hand, are in contention to face Derby and are almost certain to be fit for the visit of Fulham. So, that's it, we end this on this happy note.

At least we are winning at the moment without him

This is very worrying because Rooney rarely spends more time than necessary out-he's normally back as soon as possible (sometimes unwisely). I just hope Fergie is taking precautions to ensure Rooney doesn't suffer this injury again later on in his career, rather than it being anything more serious. I do worry about Rooney though-recently his injuries (and illnesses) have seemed to take a long time to recover from and I just wonder if he is pushing himself too hard

Yes, we are winning at the moment, but I do just worry what would happen if we start conceding - it could go one of two ways... I only hope Rooney is back by then and starts scoring again soon. Without him, I can't see us winning much. Contrary to popular opinion, it is him rather than Ronaldo we rely on for inspiration and who makes the team click
