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

Why shouldn't England drop Rooney if deserved?

From Vital England:

Fabio Capello 'seems' to have kicked-up a storm cloud with his thoughts that he will drop Wayne Rooney if he feels his form, or lack of it, warrant this - but why such a fuss from some?

Why should Rooney be any difference to any other player?

That said why have such thoughts not been said about other 'star' players in the past, some of which have failed to 'shine' or 'perform' as they should for a long time...

The Man United man has, all in all, been off form since the world cup for club and country - a lot of this is 'probably' down to all the 'off-the-field' shenanigans involving him, and then there was the whole 'I want to leave Man United' and the fallout from that.

At the moment he is sidelined with 'injury', although when he returns how he performs will determine so much, although if he is not doing the business for his club - but others are with theirs - then WHY should he be assured a place?

He should be no different to any other player, 'world class' or not - if you perform you get selected, if not you do not.

Then again this MUST apply to everyone, and hopefully it will...

Though i totally agree with this article this whole idea is rediculous. Fair enough drop Rooney because of his recent poor form but then you've also got to drop Gerrard, Lampard, Glen Johnson to name a few of the other underperforming world-class stars.
