'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rooney Set To Strike?

After the FA decided to uphold Wayne Rooney's 3-match ban for a sending off in a friendly game, there are reports that Rooney's agent has sent a letter to the Association.

Reportedly the letter has said 'I am writing on behalf of my client to express his utter dismay at the decision not to overturn the ban.

While he will continue, if selected, to play for his country with pride and commitment, he is considering withdrawing his support for the FA's commercial programme.'

The current situation regarding players, their agents and International Football is a touchy subject, therefore this is certainly not going to help. Boss Steve McClaren is naturally concerned that this could cause more problems in a club v country argument. Manchester United have so far kept quiet regarding the situation.

Too right he should serve his ban.. the bloke is a thug and cost the country a chance to do better in the world cup. After all his sending off's it would appear that this nob still has a lot to learn!

i dont think he should strike!! i mean what is the point? yes he was harshly done by, but take it like a man, your the best player in england, show that your an adult as well, and continue to play the amazing football to prove everyone that you are a mature player now
