A Season of Two Halves?

A Season of Two Halves?

One thing that will long be remembered this season, apart from it being the record breaking 19th top-flight title season, is that it was the season that Wayne Rooney declared he wanted to leave believing United lacked ambition.

Some perceive that the fact that Sir Alex Ferguson managed to convince Rooney to reconsider, change his mind and also put pen-to-paper on a new deal as one of the most significant achievements of his managerial career.

It hasn`t been a brilliant season for Rooney, the player will readily admit, himself, that the first half of the season wasn`t amongst his best but, as the season went on he did improve dramatically and his contributions were as good as anyone else`s.

As the players celebrated that record 19th title yesterday, Wayne spoke about his season and in particular the moment the title race swung our way for the last time, commenting,

"The first half of the season was a bit of a write off. But since the turn of the year I feel I have contributed."

"It is a great feeling to be part of a championship winning side."

"When you see the celebrations - the fans, the players, everyone involved, it has been a fantastic occasion. You never get bored of celebrations like this."

"The Chelsea game was massive. If we had lost that game Chelsea would have been in the leading position."

"We showed our true spirit to win that game. Chelsea`s season was over then. It has got a bit easier at the end but it wasn`t an easy season, nowhere near."


Could Rooney be the match-winner next Saturday?

I still reckon it will be Hernandez who will be the difference between us winning and losing. Barca's defense isn't the greatest and has proven to be quite fragile, with teams rarely get much of the ball yet still knocking goals past 'em, some with ease also. Hernandez's movement, pace and workrate will cause a right headache for them. As for Rooney, the year 2010 was one to forget, so lets do just that and forget it.
