Looking to Rooney!

Looking to Rooney!

The draw at the Liberty Stadium, last time out, gave us plenty of discussion points.

Some of these we`ve already touched on but one, the performance of Wayne Rooney, is one we`d like to cover on the eve of the Boxing Day fixture Against Newcastle United.

Down at the Liberty Stadium, Wayne had one of his worst games in a United shirt and it was no surprise when he was hauled off by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Discussing Wayne, ahead of the clash with a Newcastle side that haven`t picked up where they left off last season, Sir Alex has commented,

"Rooney didn`t play well, it`s a simple as that."

Interestingly, Sir Alex didn`t elaborate more than that but Wayne was honest enough to admit it wasn`t one of his best days when he remarked,

"A Swansea I could feel it wasn`t going to be one of my best days. I could feel it on the pitch - sometimes you have an off-day and I couldn`t complain at being substituted."

Here`s hoping that today Wayne has a better day!

Hope Rooney does have a better performance than last match. Though that said it surely couldn't be hard
