Desperate times. He's never been loved at Man U, always a suspicion that his heart was elsewhere and apart from a couple of monumental seasons, his threats to go to City haven't exactly made him loved of the Old Trafford faithful.


He's been treading water for 4-5 years now.

13 million pounds salary for a 31 year old that many fit blokes in their mid 40's could probably outrun in a long distance run. I'm 52 and can do around 13 minutes for 3kms at a push!

To put his salary in perspective - most clubs in the SPL do not have that amount for their entire budget.

Your average Joe in the UK is on say 15-20K a year.

Rooney earns around 35 000 pounds a day - or twice as much as your average person does in a year.

It's a very sick society.

Didn't shine last night for the Toffees but of course the pundits say its due to lack of service.

He earns that salary because Average Joe is prepared to spend part of his salary on watching him perform. The same can be said for actors & musicians.

He would probably have worked at an establishment which provides employment. What does this have to do with him growing up on a council estate?

What utter nonsense.

What about naming Beckham on the bench. Or will he be busy as the fifth Spice Girl in their come back tour?

England ... laughing stock.

And don't get me started on the "Charidee" justification for looney's recall.

Is this a commercial decision to raise the status of football in the US?

It isn't a footballing decision for sure. He was dropped from the national team because old father time had caught up with him, as it does with everyone.

Also on TV they said that the FA had "been in touch with Rooney's representatives for the last year".Really?
