United - Rooney Dishevelled?

United - Rooney Dishevelled?

Perhaps we shouldn`t read to much into the fact that Wayne Rooney ended his reputed goal drought on Saturday!

After all it was only a penalty and strikers do go through periods whereby they can`t hit the proverbial barn door.

But, perhaps, what is more worrying are the continued reports that are emerging that the Rooney who came back from the World Cup in South Africa wasn`t the same Rooney we all know and love.

Just what did happen whilst the eyes of the world were focused on the supposed greatest tournament this sport provides?

Mike Phelan, heir apparent to Sir Alex when it comes to representing the club on the BBC, has given an insight into how Wayne is slowly getting back to normal, remarking,

"Wayne came back to us a little bit disheveled from his England exploits - and he is not 100 per cent fit. Now he has got a couple of games with his national team and that will possibly help him and he`ll come back to us a bit better."

"He is still short on certain aspects of his game but as long as you keep your head up and keep persevering, things will happen."

"Strikers cannot score every week, much as they like to. Hopefully now he can relax, enjoy his football and carry on from where he left off."


Strange that we`re looking towards the national side to assist with his rehabilitation, the same national side that, seemingly; caused the problems in the first place.

Returning to the penalty he scored against West Ham, and considering that Nani had missed one the previous week at Fulham, Phelan also remarked,

"There was only ever going to be one person who took that penalty. His overall game was better against West Ham, he looked stronger."

Here`s to hoping that the international, on Friday, against Bulgaria sees Wayne continue to edge back to the same form that saw him win so many accolades last season.

Though i wouldn't mind Rooney scoring loads of goals for England I don't think i could stand one of Capello's "I showed Rooney how to score" statements.
