United - Rooney to End Drought!

United - Rooney to End Drought!

Is there a better place to end a goal drought than in front of the cameras?

Wayne Rooney, who has now gone an incredible 1076 minutes without scoring will, no doubt be leading the United line at Craven Cottage this Sunday.

With the fixture being transmitted live by Sky Sports, it gives Rooney the perfect chance to exercise this particular demon.

But his manager, despite the goal drought, has no doubts regarding his main strikers` ability and, perhaps in an effort to boost his flagging confidence, has remarked ahead of the game,

"Wayne is one of the best strikers in the world. He is still young, still progressing and still learning."

"When players get to 26 or 27, that`s when you start to see a mature player who is edging towards the peak of his powers. I hope we see that in Wayne."


What`s your opinion!

Will Wayne end his goal drought beside the River Thames on Sunday?

I' m not a United fan but I was dissappointed with Rooney's attitude in the World Cup. He seemed jaded and clearly unfit. You had only to look at the red face. What's more he has carried this over to the new season. Just doesn't look the same player he was last year. I'd be interested to see what United fans think??

He seemed far more happy on Sunday than what he did for England and I would put it down to one thing, the service provided. For England Rooney was dropping to the half-way line just to get a touch on the ball because the ball was hofted up to Heskey all the time. However, Rooney was perhaps unlucky not to score against Newcastle and hasn't got to drop to midfield to get a pass (which is really unimaginable when you consider England had Gerrard and Lampard to feed the ball to Rooney) and can exploit space and get more involved in attacking play. They're my thoughts Philto. I hope Rooney does score because it may be that one-on-one chance that may be the difference in the game.
