United - Rooney Dropped Too Deep!

United - Rooney Dropped Too Deep!

After a disappointing opening game in the World Cup, where Wayne Rooney failed to illuminate proceedings, we`re all hoping that England`s star striker is back to firing on all cylinders against Algeria, this Friday.

Rooney, who has recovered from an ankle knock picked up in the opening game, has been the subject of a discussion, given to the media, by Clint Dempsey, the American who gave Robert Green nightmares with that low shot that crept in.

Dempsey, picks up on a point that is probably true, remarking,

"We knew Rooney was going to go back and hold and we knew the further away from goal the better for us, so we had that under control."

It was something we also picked up on as well. At times Wayne seemed almost desperate to drop far too deep to get involved instead of being at the sharp end and being the danger we all know he can be.

Now whether it was sheer frustration at how things were going or whether it was first night nerves, all we can hope is that, on Friday, Wayne doesn`t stray too far away from that eighteen yard line and that he gives the Algerian defence a torrid time!

Emile Heskey cannot win you a World Cup. Wayne Rooney can. There's a time for strategy and team play, and there's a time to let the individual talents of your star players shine. I think it's time to put Rooney up top and let him do for England what he did for United all season.

Well we all know Rooney drifts from his position, it shouldn't be Dempsey telling him this though it should be Capello.

i reckon Capello has lost the plot bowing to tabloid talk with his selections!

Im not too sure of Capello either, i don't deny how well he has brought discipline to the team but as Hansen said he's very one-minded and that makes him incredibly stubborn. When it came to the selection despite all the talk about taking players based on form it didn't surprise me that he took Heskey over Bent because that's his system and that wont change no matter whose playing well and whose not. He says he picked the best team, well in my opinion the best team would be Gerrard playing behind Rooney or Rooney up front on his own.
