United - Rooney`s Loss of Form?

United - Rooney`s Loss of Form?

After the malaise of last night, the inevitable inquest had to begin.

Why are the nations, supposed, finest are performing so terribly and in particular our very own Wayne Rooney?

Is Wayne still carrying a niggling-injury?

Is he suffering from some form of burn-out?

After the game, as the press hovered like vultures waiting to peck at a dying carcass, Fabio Capello was at a loss to explain why Rooney hasn`t really got going in South Africa 2010, remarking,

"I don`t know, I don`t like to speak about one player the performance of one player. I prefer to speak about the performance of the team."

"But yes Rooney didn`t play like Rooney, but it`s not just his problem."


So what is wrong with Wayne? Anyone care to hazard a guess?

Well, when Rooney played like Rooney he was upfront on his own he has perhaps gotten so use to this that when the expectations and his role within the team changed he felt like a fish out of water. Or, quite simply, Rooney waited up front for the ball which he firstly didnt recieved and when he recieved it he fluffed up, so Rooney being Rooney got frustrated with the team and himself and began to try playmaking, coming back to the halfway line to play the ball so when we were on the attack he was always absent. Also, his shots out of pure desperation and frustation hardly done him any good.

He must still be injured! he looked tired and was lacking pace all game. I want to hear what your boy alex ferguson has to say about rooney, capello and what has happened to our star player.

I think he hasn't recovered completely and also the fact that playing with Heskey means fewer Goal scoring opportunities. It has become predictable and dull.
