Rooney - Self Critical!

Yesterday we remarked how Sir Alex Ferguson perceived that Wayne Rooney tends to go off the boil when United are cruising to victory and of how he loses his cutting edge.

The game against Aston Villa saw Rooney substituted for the second game in a row, despite having scored a brace.

Rooney however accepted, in a post match interview, that he wasn`t at his best, remarking to the media,

"I was delighted with my goals but at times it wasn`t good enough from myself. I was disappointed with that and I have to put that right."

"Obviously I`m happy with the goals, but the rest of my play wasn`t great."

As for the result though, after the loss to Wigan in the previous game, Rooney continued,

"We were disappointed with our performance against Wigan but this was a chance to get it out of our systems."

"We fully deserved the win against Villa and credit to the team for that."

Next up are Everton, traditionally hard opponents to beat!

By his own admission he played poor so surely he can understand Fergies reasoning in taking him off. 2 consecutive poor performances anymore and perhaps he's due for a period on the bench whilst others who are showing good form fill in for him.

Rooney? Self Critical - dont make me laugh! Tell him and Ashley Young to look in the mirror before criticising others!
