Captain Rooney!

It appears that the world has turned full circle for Wayne Rooney!

Having been on the receiving end of some severe criticism during his career, Wayne will lead England out, for the crucial World Cup qualifier tonight, against San Marino, at Wembley.

It`ll be a far cry from those sad days when Rooney shouted abuse at the England supporters following a disappointing draw against Algeria in the 2010 World Cup.

But that`s something that Rooney has reflected on as he achieves every boy`s dream in captaining his country,

"It won`t be happening again, I can promise I`ve matured as a player."

"What happened in Montenegro was a stupid thing to do and I regretted it as soon as I had done it. I apologized and paid the price."


Indeed, Rooney`s recent disciplinary record, since those spats, is remarkable with Wayne having selected just a single yellow card in his last 44 games. But does this indicate a new level of maturity for England`s best striker?

Wayne believes so, further remarking,

"After that, at club level, you saw a different person. I cut out a lot of the silly tackles and mistakes I made as a young player."

"I have no issue with that. You make the wrong type of headlines and miss games you don`t want to be missing."


Will Wayne`s debut as the captain of his country turn out to be a memorable night?

Tune in to ITV tonight and see.

Off topic, but it looks like Ryan Tunnicliffe is in a spot of bother. Too much money, far too young, and some of these lads just can't cope it would seem.

Your right fcb far to much money for the youngsters but it's the same at every club. Should be an official cap on how much they can be paid till a certain age. Might stop some from getting in trouble if they understood the value of money. Unfortunately there will always be one or two that go off the rails no matter what.

There's youngsters doing this all over the country. Not trying to excuse Tunnicliffe just reckon MotorMad is right and its due to the fact that they don't quite understand the value of money. Hopefully it's a learning experience for the lad, maybe losing his licence will help understand its value also.
