Cascarino Says Rooney Needs To Stay 'Crazy' !

Cascarino Says Rooney Needs To Stay 'Crazy' !

Tony Cascarino, pundit for the New Football Pools says Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has to keep his 'crazy' ways!

'The press reports that Fabio Capello has told Wayne Rooney to calm down must be taken with a pinch of salt. After all, if the lad loses his aggression then he loses a lot of what makes him so good. Wayne has got to have that in his game. For me, the dismissal at Fulham was not down to him playing his usual aggressive game but down to his frustration at being dropped by Sir Alex.

In this day and age players can get 'rested` with more and more big games on the horizon but with a two week international break Rooney`s omission was down to being dropped and it was a big mistake. I can`t fathom why Sir Alex would drop the striker with no games coming up other than to make him a scapegoat for the horrendous home defeat to Liverpool. If that is the case then Fergie had another 10 players he could have dropped. Wayne was poor against Liverpool but for me he`s far too good a player to be made a scapegoat of.

How on earth can you drop someone of his quality for such a big game when there is a two week break coming up? Personally, I feel there must be something behind the scenes, a bust-up in training or something as the way the lad took the field you could see he was full of frustration at being dropped. If Sir Alex was trying to make a statement to the lad it seriously backfired. Would he have done the same with Nemanja Vidic following his horror show? I doubt it very much.

At the end of the season Sir Alex may well rue dropping Rooney for this game as he is undoubtedly one of United`s best players.'

Well it is obvious that Rooney should stay crazy, Man U needs someone to believe that we can win the PL this year too... (not a very realistic dream, since we got hammered by Liverpool and Fulham, I have kinda lost faith in my Devils...)

TheBigOne - it's not an unrealistic dream. Might be more difficult now, but we still have to drop at least 4 points in our last nine games not to win the title. We still have the upperhand. Have faith! United have been here before - 96/97 two thrashings in a row and we still won the title. Different team, but one that were called "unbeatable" (though we were never that good) after 11 matches straight wins. We will pull through. We are UNITED.

Agree agree agree with the article. Still cannot see why on earth Fergie dropped Rooney for Fulham. True, he does (and did) play well from the bench, and he wasn't himself against Liverpool, but he certainly wasn't the worst. Rooney makes our team tick and we need him.
