United - That Five Year Deal!

United - That Five Year Deal!

Perplexed, shocked but quite possibly delighted, all are emotions that raced through my mind on hearing that Wayne Rooney had done a u-turn and put pen to paper on a new five year deal.

But I`m still pondering over why we`ve seen a sudden and very dramatic change of mind from Wayne Rooney and what effects it will have on our squad.

Sir Alex Ferguson promised a quick conclusion, after the statement issued by Rooney to the public, but very few hacks saw this as the outcome, most including ourselves, believed that Rooney had, quite possibly, played his last game as a United player.

Today the media is awash with comments attributed to various United players, past and present, who were far from complimentary in their assessment of his actions and his total disrespect for our club.

Will that simply all be forgotten about when Rooney strides back into Carrington to resume his rehabilitation from his ankle injury?

What about the supporters who felt betrayed by his actions, are they suddenly going to welcome him back with open arms?

My initial feeling is that the answer to both questions will, probably, be yes! The very nature of this game supports the fickle trait.

But, just what did persuade Wayne to change his mind?

Have those behind the scenes agreed to bend to Rooney`s demands?

Will we see an influx of top talent this January or next summer?

If the answer to those two questions is yes then I have to admit that I fear for the future of our game, a game that would, as Ian Holloway so rightly said in his emotional outburst yesterday, is bowing to player power in a way it has never done before.

what a scumbag. No doubt every single one of you who's said 'oh, he not that good' or saying what a **** he is will be denying saying such things, chanting his name and claiming yet again he's world class. At the end of the day he's no better than his hookers, a huge wh*re.

That's what annoys me dezzyp, it's frustrating being associated with many, not all though, fickle fans. As for the protests outside his house, how pathetic...

Sorry to say this but this is Uniteds worse signing. Your club is in the red and now the club have increased his wages to £180.000 per week!!!! No wonder clubs are going to the wall, united deserve evrything that will be coming to them over the next few seasons. And NO I don't mean winning trophy's. Believe me this lad will be the down fall of this once great club. The down wards spiral is coming.

Also, Rooney best start apologising to the team he pretty much branded as not being good enough.

Hmm...everybody falls for the barely decipherable utterances of St. Alex of the Fresians. Please explain why anybody should apologise for firstly rejecting a contract, and then agreeing a new one.

Sorry Louis, We`re Not Buying It!

Sometime today, or quite possibly tomorrow, we`re expecting Marouane Fellaini to be charged by the Football Association.
