About five years ago and before that period, Wayne Rooney was a beast. Opposing teams would put 5 players on him at times, just to stop him. Every time Rooney was in possession, you knew that he would create a dangerous opening for his team. But after 2011/12 season, Rooney has been average and sometimes just extremely poor. I cannae understand why the managers of England and Man U insist on not only playing him, but starting him for every game. The injuries did him in four or five years ago and now he really is a waste of space at any top team. If England or Man U want any semblance of success, they need to drop the boy Rooney. The lads not up to it anymore.
