It’s All About Wayne’s World Now

Posted by Keano! on June 14, 2009

Ronaldo is on his way to Spain and I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Wayne Rooney won’t be as gutted as some to see the Portuguese man leave as the number ten can now take the reigns as the United focal point, which in my opinion anyways, he always was.

Rooney contains all the attributes you want in a player and if Sir Alex plays him in the central role which Rooney longs for then it could be the key to United’s future success.

Roo Wants To Be Center Of Attention

Posted by Keano! on June 5, 2009

Wayne Rooney has spoken out of his desire to play in a central role for Manchester United. The number ten has always believed he plays his best stuff right behind a front man or up front spearheading the teams attack. However, it hasn’t always panned out that way for Wayne as Sir Alex Ferguson, despite saying last Summer he’d play Wayne in his best position, opted to put the bullish attacker out wide left and sometimes wide right as the season progressed. Rooney had to fill in on the left wing for United in their Champions League final too.

FZ: Planning For Next Season

Posted by Keano! on June 4, 2009

There’s no doubt that you learn from defeat and United’s defeat in the Champions League final certainly taught some lessons and highlighted problems which some didn’t know existed. It wasn’t specifically the defeat, more the performance. But the problems that were so visible did not appear overnight as they have been there for some time.

There’s no doubt that this season has been a success despite the final. Winning the League is always the bread and butter, and anything else would be a bonus. A Community Shield win is always a good start to the season. The Club World Cup, despite the lack of importance that some supporters feel regarding the trophy, is quite prestigious. After all, you’re only there when you become European Champions and the League Cup is always a welcome boost midway through the season, especially to the younger players who may be winning their first trophy.

Roo A Future Center Mid?

Posted by Keano! on June 1, 2009

Wayne Rooney, a man who typifies the term passion, work and endeavour. The 23 year old has made a massive name for himself becoming one of Manchester United’s most liked players down through the years, and he played his trade on Merseyside before making the switch which has seen the forward move onto new levels.

As a forward though, he has never and I doubt he will ever be a prolific goals corer like your Ole Gunnar Solskjaers, Ruud Van Nistelrooys and the like. For me and almost every other United fan, Wayne Rooney’s best role is playing just behind a front man who can play on the last defender and link the midfield and attack. That is where Rooney’s abilities are being used to the max I feel

Giggs Picks A Personal United Team

Posted by Keano! on May 19, 2009

Winner of an eleventh League title last Saturday, Ryan Giggs was asked over the weekend to submit a team of former and present United players he played with. There were some slight surprises in the Welshman’s selection but when considered, it is a pretty impressive line out.

Giggs opted to go with a 4-4-2 formation, but in his team, there were no places for United stars like Nemanja Vidic, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo.
