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

Rooney&Tevez: Yes, It Works!

Rio Ferdinand states the now obvious: Carlos Tevez and Wayne Rooney form a devastating partnership.

What have we read? Rooney and Tevez are too similar; both like to drop deep, both are fast, agressive and skilful but not good enough in the air as a consequence of their lack of height. Either of them need a real goalscorer who can get behind defenders, pundits claimed.

Well, on the basis of the last two games, it's total bollocks. They were outstanding against Wigan and totally demolished Aston Villa. The way they are interchanging each other's position is totally unpredictable and it's looking like they already know where the other will be when one decides to pass.

If two players of such astonishing quality can form a real partnership... that could be deadly and my optimism is increasing. Rio Ferdinand is apparently feeling the same way.

'Wayne is in the groove and he is one of those who gets goals in spurts. He is one of those who goes on a mad goal spree.

'Wayne is definitely capable of getting 20 odd goals this season. He did it last season and I'd put money on him to do it this season if I was a betting man.

'Top players always bounce back from setbacks. We had a setback in midweek with England and, as a top player, Wayne came back strongly for us.'

I won't say 'I told you so'...ooops, I just did that. But I do not wish to push myself into the limelight: let's hear Rio's opinion about Carlitos.

'Carlos gets in the holes between the midfield and the defence of opponents and, if he can keep doing that and slipping the ball through to Wayne, they will continue to be a formidable pairing.

'It is fantastic for us to have Wayne and Carlos. The myth about the two of them not being able to play together ... was finally put to bed against Villa.'

Hopefully it was. Though I expect that after a below-par performane that myth will be told again...
