United - The Rooney Decision!

United - The Rooney Decision!

With the tabloid press still homing in on the Rooney situation, there appears to be some doubt as to whether Wayne Rooney will line up for Manchester United this season.

Whilst one tabloid infers that Rooney is up for it and wants to play at Goodison another paints a far gloomier picture inferring that Rooney may well be about to take a break from football to try and resolve the domestic crisis his actions have caused.

Naturally, although we`ve no doubt Sir Alex has read Rooney the riot act, Sir Alex will be keen to only play Rooney if his mind-set is right and we believe that might not be the case now that he`s on home soil as opposed to the relative sanctuary that Basel gave him on Tuesday night.

Sir Alex will also be quite content that if Rooney does need a break to sort this mess out then he has the back-up to call upon that will, in no way, diminish our chances of getting a result against Everton.

However, Sir Alex gave no indications as to what he will do this weekend when he categorically stated, with regards to Rooney, at the pre-match press conference,

"Let`s put it to bed straightaway. I am not discussing any of my players` personal lives."

The only question remains is if Rooney is excused duty this weekend how long will he be allowed to remain unavailable, especially with crucial games against Glasgow Rangers and Liverpool on the horizon!

Would you play Rooney tomorrow or would you give him leave of absence?

I'd rest him until we get back to friendly soil at OT!

Speaking to a few reds tonight in the pub after work, and one of them reckoned that Rooney has asked the club for compassionate leave while he sorts out his marriage. Anyone else heard anything on this?

Personally i would give him compassionate leave. However, he was OK playing for country and he didn't feel the urge to go then so why should he now?
