United - Fergie`s Choice?

United - Fergie`s Choice?

If you look at the scoring charts you`d probably pick Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez as our striking partnership.

Once again, Javier came off the bench to score and he is now well ahead of Wayne Rooney in the scoring charts.

But would Sir Alex ever drop Rooney in favour of Hernandez?

Would Sir Alex stick his £250,000 a week man on the bench?

On Tuesday evening, Sir Alex had no hesitation in taking off Rooney after the striker had what can best be described as a poor game.

Speaking about it afterwards, Sir Alex remarked to the media,

"I tried to use Wayne as a wide player and although he has done that role well in the past, he was just not getting into the game in the first half."

"That was no fault of his. We then tried to put him through the middle, but when we were 2-0 down we had to do something."

"Chicharito was a gamble of course, but immediately he went through and forced a terrific save from the keeper. And then he got the equaliser for us."

"He made a great impact for us. In fact he could have scored four goals."


Or, instead of suggesting Rooney might be dropped, should we concentrate on the fact that Hernandez is such a great impact player coming off the bench?

We should stick with Rooney and play him through the middle behind Berby. Rooney is still a massive playmaker despite not scoring at the moment so it would be silly to leave him out of the squad. I said before perhaps try him as an attacking mid rather than a forward.
