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

Protect Poor Little Wayne

Wayne Rooney seems to have found his true best form. The 21-year-old striker's second goal against Pompey was just about magnificent and for the first time in this season, Rooney scored in consecutive games. Rio Ferdinand is not surprised but cautious.

Wayne Rooney rediscovered his joy in playing football, that was crystal clear. The Rooney of November or December would not have tried that chip - but now he seemed to be sure it would work. It did but we can't expect him to do it in every match, as Rio warned everyone.

'I am not surprised by what he did,' said Ferdinand.

'Wayne is a fantastic footballer. He is a joy to play with and a joy to watch.

'I am so pleased he is on my side because he is capable of doing things like that. But people must not forget he is still a young player and still on a learning curve.

'Sometimes, they expect too much of him. During this spell, when people have been questioning his goalscoring, Wayne's work-rate and team ethic never wavered at all.'

Yes protect him, I just wished you'd left him on the bench for the whole 90 mins & we might have mugged you. Fair play to you & him. Good luck for the rest of the season. We'll just concentrate on staying in the top 6.

Will be difficult if Spurs find their form. Good luck though, knock Bolton out of the top 6!

Rooneys second goal was brilliant, keep him fit for England, his form will better for the rest of the season and beyond.

Poor James. He was fantastic against us in the league game and in the Cup, too - yet he picked the ball out of the net 7 times, none of them his fault.

Can i just say i had the pleasure of watching the Rooney chip on TV. Both me and my mate even as Villa fans both got off the sofa and applauded. A truly magical goal from a truly magical player.
