How many seasons have United fucked him about one way or another? How much shit did Fergie cause? How often has he been played out of position? How long have we complained about the lack of investment in the team? How long has he played with an old or completely shit midfield? When it looked like we had something going with Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez the whole thing fell apart thru bad stewardship and we went backwards instead.
And yet he's troubling all the records even though he's been hampered all the way and on the few occasions things clicked he delivered every time.
How have United fucked him about? By paying him more money year after year? Played out of his position? What is his best position then? No.9? I thought that was his best position, then I sat there and watched us lose week after week in the last couple of months of last season while he sat up there like a useless lump contributing sweet fuck all. The reality is he's never laid claim to a single position, for United or for England. Time to recognize that he's the world's best utility player. That's nice to have, but you don't build a side around a utility player, and he's never been the star when we've won the league. In fact, he's often looked halfway out of the club when we've won the league.
So for ten years at United Rooney has been the problem? How have United fucked him about? We've been moaning endlessly about lack of investment, buying prospects rather than established big names, most of those in positions we didn't need to strengthen, continuing to flog the dead horses that were Nani, Anderson, Cleverly, Young, Fletcher, etc, Fergie leaving, Moyes!!!, Moyes being sacked, LVG, Ronaldo going, Tevez going, Pique going, Pogba going, Scholes gone, then back, then gone, Giggs gone, Rio gone, Vidic gone, Evra gone, none of then being adequately replaced.
So the season Moyes fucked up is Rooney's fault? Do you remember at stages near the end last season it looked like the players were trying to play shit to get rid of Moyes but you thought that Rooney should be playing out of his skin.
He hasn't laid claim to any position for United or England in your estimation, yet the records are falling!!!! Are you fucking stupid???
But hey! Lets not forget the money......
