'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - The Main Talking Point Still!

The absence of Wayne Rooney, from the squad that was named at Goodison Park on Saturday, continues to dominate the tabloid sports headlines.

On Saturday, Sir Alex suggested that Rooney had been rested to spare him from the inevitable wave after wave of abuse that would be heading his way from the partisan crowd.

But, the tabloids are quick to point out that they have information that Rooney was in the starting eleven when it came to the last training session before the match. They then go on to suggest that Sir Alex Ferguson gave Rooney the mother-of-all dressing downs before deciding to leave him out altogether.

The inference is also there that any more behaviour of this sort will not be tolerated.

David Moyes, having calmed down after his pitch invasion and subsequent rant at the referee, Martin Atkinson, has given his views on what he thinks might have happened, he too believes that Sir Alex Ferguson had another motive, explaining,

"I don`t think you should put it all on the crowd."

"The manager there knows what he`s doing and I`m sure he did what he thought was right."

"Maybe he was just making sure everybody realises if you play for United you have to conduct yourself in a certain manner and the football club doesn`t really care who you are."


Now that could very well be true, Rooney`s behaviour doesn`t reflect well on the player or the club and already there are mutterings about some of the many advertisers who have done deals with Rooney pulling the plug.

But Sir Alex Ferguson did infer that Rooney will definitely start in our all British Champions League tie against Glasgow Rangers, on Tuesday evening, much to the annoyance of a leading light amongst the Rangers faithful with the Rangers Supporters Chief, Andy Kerr, remarking,

"Because of the recent headlines, there will be added attention on him."

"I`m sure there will be a hostile reception for Rooney but more so because he`s the major threat to Rangers."

"I just wish Ferguson would keep him out of this game as well."


We don`t think he will; one game, a few very harsh words and Rooney will know exactly what is expected of him in the future!

Anyone reckon he`s the kind of player that will net a crucial goal on the night?

My eyes are on Berby. I also do agree with the newspapers, Fergie likes to uphold the clubs image, something he very strongly believes in so for Rooney to act how he has acted is basically going against everything Fergie believes in.
