United - A Souness Barbed Comment?

United - A Souness Barbed Comment?

Some people just love the sound of their own voices or to see their name in print!

Now we`re not saying that`s the case with Graeme Souness, we`ll leave you to make your own mind up on that point, but the ex-Liverpool midfield enforcer appears to have a view on most things.

Now whether that`s down to time spent as a television pundit, mostly with Sky, we`ll also leave you to debate, but, on the eve of an important fixture between ourselves and the club where he made his name, Souness has come out with a pearl of a discussion topic, namely the future of Wayne Rooney with the Scotsman quoted as having remarked,

"In the back of Fergie`s mind, he`ll think, 'I may cash in on Rooney in the summer` as he`s been average."

"At the World Cup everything bounced off him and that has continued."


What planet is Souness on?

Surely, the sale of Rooney wouldn`t even be contemplated would it?

Is he having a laugh?! What a complete idiot, does he not realise form is temporary? We haven't given him a new contract to bump up his price and think many people have forgotten his quality, he's still relatively young and still developing his game and is already one of the best striker's in the world. He hasn't been on goalscoring form no but he is pivotal to our attacks and has been brilliant in the more advanced playmaking position with many assists to show for it.

To be honest with you TF7 my first instinct ( considering the comments he had made and the disrespect he had shown ) when I heard Rooney had signed a new deal was that U*d were pushing his price up in the event they did sell him. If U*d were to sell Rooney they could use the huge transfer fee they would receive to invest in a midfield that sorely needs strengthening. ( if they got a couple of decent centre mids then maybe they wouldn't use the long ball tactic so often;-) )

Bluedub, i'm still quite sore about those comments, but i'm not looking to dwell on the past and as much as would love to see money reinvested in the midfield, with new contracts being handed out, it's a message that Fergie isn't going to spend. Plus Rooney is his golden boy and I don't reckon he would even swap him for Ronaldo or Messi!

I'm perfectly happy for Wooney to stay right where he is for the next few seasons - I love hearing the manure fans talking about how "Class is permanent" as the shrekster continues to weigh in with single figures - the penny will drop eventually, but by then he'll not be worth quite as much as the rags were hoping to recoup for him.
