United - Rooney The Lionheart?

United - Rooney The Lionheart?

The carnival is about to begin.

In fact by the time you get to read this we`ll have already have experienced the first game of the 2010 World Cup, in South Africa.

The festival of football will be in our faces like never before, three games a day, blanket media coverage and a fever of national fervour sweeping the country.

Naturally, all eyes will be focused on England and their crusade to bring home the trophy and with our campaign starting tomorrow, there`s not too long to wait.

The name on everyone`s lips though is Wayne Rooney, he`s seen as the man who can propel us to glory, the man who can make that difference and the man who stands head and shoulders above all others in the talent stakes.

The England captain, Steven Gerrard, whilst facing the press yesterday, predicted great things for Rooney this tournament, claiming he can make the tournament his own, remarking,

"Wayne`s in a position to make this World Cup his own just like Pele and Maradona did. He is a fantastic age, he is in great shape and he is coming off the back of an unbelievable season, probably his best, s his confidence is sky high."

"He is right up there in the category of the very best players in the tournament like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. That gives all of us such confidence."

"So the stage is set for Wayne to go out and deliver, to be England`s main man who will shoot us to glory."

"I`m just delighted he is English and he is going to be leading us from the front and we all will be right behind him."

"Hopefully he can be our main goal scorer and score the goals that spur us on to victory."


A glowing tribute but in the cold light of day, I can`t help but suspect all our plans will be in serious trouble if the talisman that is Wayne Rooney fails to deliver the goods.

Reading between the lines, are we a one man team?

Not too much pressure then. Also, perhaps we should bring Dos Santos to united give Hernandez some company and also he appears to be an amazing talent rotting at Tottenham Hot5h1t.

I am hoping that the Lion is well fed before the games. It would be really good to see him finish each game and score some goals.
