Rooney Is Making Very Good Progress

Rooney Is Making Very Good Progress

Wayne Rooney is out of tomorrow's Champions League quarter-final against Bayern - which should not be a surprise to anyone, considering Fergie's Friday announcement that Rooney will be forced to miss 2-3 weeks. But an insane rumour has spread over the press about a miraculous recovery which could see him recalled for the big game on Wednesday.

'He's got no chance. We've made some good progress with the lad, the medical team have done fantastic, but I'm not prepared to take a risk on a player who is not 100% fit,' Sir Alex said.

'The boy is making good progress. The medical team have done a fantastic job but it is an ankle injury the same as any other ankle injury. You can't take a risk with a player who is not 100%.

'I don't think he will be on the bench although he might talk me into it, it is a difficult one.'


OK, so does he have a chance or not then? Rooney didn't train this morning so he wouldn't be of much use anyway - I don't think his ankle is all right. A fit and healthy Federico Macheda is a better bet than a Wayne Rooney hobbling around in pain. So why would Fergie allow himself to be talked into putting Wayne on the bench?

I just hope Sir Alex doesn't act in desperation to save his own position which if we lose tomorrow must be seriously in doubt. There is a danger that if he plays Wayne too early, he will get more seriously injured, which will be bad news for both United and for England.

Breaking Rooney just before the world cup won't go down too well with a lot of people. Not that taggart or most of your fans would care, but it would certainly generate a lot of ill-will towards your club, especially at the FA.

Theres a rumour around Manchester that if United lose tonight then the Glazers will sack Sir Alex Ferguson and install an explayer with Premiership management experience. That means either Bruce, Hughes,Keane or my favourite for the job Paul Ince.

Why is Wswilly3 pretending to be a United fan and calling for Fergies head on every article? Is somebody out there finding his comments funny? From what I've read no one seems to be buying the idea that any real United fan wants Fergie sacked - they just think Wswilly3 is a moron - so whats the point?

True Tuscan, because every manure fan knows you are righteously up the creek without a paddle, boat or waterwings once the red-nosed scotsman cashes his chips. How are the swimming lessons going BTW?
