Rooney Gracious in Defeat!

Rooney Gracious in Defeat!

The one bright spot amongst the sea of gloom at Wembley, on Saturday night, was the superb goal from Wayne Rooney.

The finish was sublime and gave us hope that after going a goal down the situation was retrievable.

Sadly it was a false dawn and the rest is history.

Rooney, who had a mixed season, was fulsome on his praise of the Catalan side post the defeat, remarking,

"We weren`t there at Wembley to make the numbers up."

"We wanted to win. We know Barcelona are a fantastic team but thought we could hurt them."

"So we were really disappointed, but you have to congratulate them because they`re a special team."

"That`s the level we want to be at and we need to up our level to be there."

"I`m sure the manager knows that and he`ll be looking at what he needs to do to get us at that level."

"I`ve watched the game back and Barcelona are incredible. You`ve got to hold your hands up. They were by far the better team. But we allowed them too much time on the ball and showed them too much respect."

"We didn`t hurt them enough going forwards."


Some good points there Wayne but, in all honesty, I get the feeling whatever we`d have done we`d have still been undone!

To be frank, we could go on a Real Madrid spending spree and buy all the top talents in the world and still be unable to beat Barcelona, they're just too good. I'm gald we're looking to improve and up our game a bit and it's clear as delight to step up a level we need a football playing midfield. Honsetly, our midfield cannot play a ball across the ground to save their life par Fletcher, who can play a short low pass and nothing more and Anderson, who's inconsistent but perhaps the only player who attempts low through balls to the strikers.
