United Confirm Rooney`s Extended Absence!

United Confirm Rooney`s Extended Absence!

It`s looking as if Wayne Rooney will be pocketing his grotesquely inflated wage packet for a couple of more weeks before actually starting to earn it.

Just back from his jolly sortie to Dubai, it had been expected that Wayne might well be available imminently, especially after Sir Alex Ferguson had implied that his ankle injury would necessitate a three week break when the incident happened.

But that doesn`t appear to be the case today!

Appearing in front of the media ahead of the intriguing clash with Spurs, this weekend, Sir Alex informed those in attendance that Rooney`s absence could well be "for a little longer".

Good job we have young Javier then isn`t it!

Well 'a little longer' in Owen Hargreaves case has been another year and half, is it really so hard to give an accurate reading? Rooney has truely infuriated me, on the back of a poor world cup in which he insults the fans he returns to domestic football to play 5h1te for the club, insult and disrespect the manager, club and fans simultaneously, brands his team as not being good enough and then gets a massive, unsightly pay rise and gets to hop off on holiday and then really winds-up the fan by telling us we should be patient and sits on a sunbed somewhere showing no support to the team. I hate to admit it but Fergie has really been taken for a mug. The i'm happy Rooney has stayed i'm not happy with the conditions he is staying under, how can he even moan that we're not bringing in the talent when he's taking up the wage budget.

In a nutshell, if i was Fergie i would've told him to **** off with his demands and that if he wants to leave dont let the door hit him on the way out.

He kisses the badge because he loves the fact that he's milking the club of everything he can get, he's no better than the American owners. Rant is over now :P

Letting rooney go would have vindicated his claims that the club was in decline and lacked ambition, something that taggart and your owners could not contemplate doing. So Rooney and Stretford had you right over a barrel on this one, and despite his new contract I suspect that shrek will be sold in the summer - but not for as much money as your owners hope for. If not, what the hey, you and shrek deserve each other.
