'If It's Football, It's Vital'

There's Nothing Wrong With Rooney's Knee

Owen Coyle expressed his hope that Rooney would be unavailable for our visit to Bolton; the nation were desperately worried whether his knee would hold together until after the World Cup... the intense scrutiny on him is maddening but thus far Rooney is coping fine.

'Wayne is fit and there's nothing wrong with his knee,' Sir Alex told reporters at Carrington.

'Scholes is okay again after an ankle knock and Ryan is a further week on with his training. Whether I start him or not is another matter. But his and Scholes' experience is invaluable at this time of year.'

Sure, sure. Anyway, you know what's the funniest about the Rooney story? The whole concern about his knee originated from the fact that he was perceived to be limping as he left Old Trafford after the 2-1 win over Liverpool and that allegedly his knees are swollen after every game.

I mean, these people call themselves journalists? Just how many footballers feel some kind of pain after games, how many footballers experience swelling in one of their body parts? Pretty much all of them every time. It's just that Rooney, as the National's Great Shining Hope, is under so much more scrutiny.

They both are fit,so we all can relax a bit,on a brighter note Robben seems to have a problem and is a major doubt against us.
