Rooney Hits New Milestone!

Rooney Hits New Milestone!

Still only 25, Wayne Rooney is fast becoming something of an elder statesman in this young side of ours.

Yesterday`s hat-trick saw Rooney become the highest scorer, for Manchester United, in the Premier League whilst also seeing him climb to 9th in the clubs all-time scoring list.

After the game, a buoyant Rooney, which is in stark contrast to the Rooney of last season at this stage, had this to say about his latest milestone,

"I was aware of the statistics before the game and many of my milestones have come against Arsenal."

"My first goal for Everton was against them and so was my first Premier League goal for United - and now the 150th has come against them."


And as for chasing down a certain Sir Bobby Charlton, he further added,

"I asked how many Bobby Charlton had and Ryan Giggs said I needed another 100 - so that`s the target for now."

And finally, the hat-trick yesterday and the teams overall performance,

"It`s something I`ve been working on and I`ve been quite successful in training. I was unlucky against Tottenham but, thankfully, two went in here."

"The performance was incredible and we fully deserved our victory. Whether Arsenal had a full squad or not we would have got about them and tried to score."


But did anybody ever envisage EIGHT flying in?

Rooney's freekicks were great, Szczesny (or however you spell it) didn't know where to go and he was unfortunate against Tottenham last week to not grab a hat-trick after Freidel saved another fantastic freekick and Rooney somehow missed a sitter. I reckon Rooney will break Sir Bobbys record. Is it safe to say we'll score a lot more goals this season from deadball situations?
