Rooney - We Daren't Not Attack

Rooney - We Daren't Not Attack

Wayne Rooney, currently banned as the FA decided to bite the hand that feeds, has warned Manchester United that he can't replace Ruud van Nistelrooy by himself.

He told The Sun: 'A lot has been said about the fact we cannot fill Ruud's boots. I am not saying we can but what we are trying to do is spread the goals out throughout the team. So in that sense it was good myself, Louis and Cristiano all managed to get a goal.'

Saha and Ronaldo joined Rooney on the scoresheet in the 5-1 thrashing of Fulham.

Rooney continued: 'They were my first competitive goals since the game at Tottenham last April and it was playing on my mind a little bit. I didn't want to get to the middle of September without scoring, so it is a bit of a relief. Now, all I can do is carry on training. Maybe I will ask the gaffer for a couple of days off - but I doubt that will happen.'

He also says 'You don't get away with playing dull football at this club. You walk out onto the pitch and the noise is deafening. United fans love seeing us attack teams. That is what we like to do and hopefully that will continue.'

Too right!

Not for you Mr. Rooney for the next three games at least, good luck with the strike hopefully the ban will be extended for another 35 games, Rooney the hand that feeds, what a load of crap. Football the game, feeds, who cares if a few shirts with Rooney on the back don't get sold. Take football away from Rooney and like anyone else Rooney would be a no-one. Grow up you pathetic little mummies boy.

Rooney is taking player power too far, In the eyes of the referee and the FA Rooney was guilty and has been given a 3 match ban, why should Rooney use his position as an England player to try and blackmail the FA in to letting him off? Rooney should be given a longer ban now for trying to bring the game into disrepute or fined heavily for his childish attempts to blackmail the FA.... I know that Man U fans will not agree but I can assure you if it was Gerrard or Lampard that attempted to get a ban lifted in this way then Man U fans would be shouting the loudest.

Too right sid, funny that Scholes hasn't jumped up, gone on strike threatened anyone with anything, copped it on the chin and is paying quietly for his crime.
