Are United Fans Getting Fed up with Rooney?


It’s been a season of big name failures, with plenty of big name Premier League players failing to live up to their high standards. It is becoming clear, however, that Wayne Rooney might be at the top of this list – England’s top goalscorer’s dip in form started towards the end of last season already and seems to be getting worse.

He did break his Premier League scoring drought last weekend but after his midweek performance, it seems United fans are not convinced that his fortunes are changing. Many say he was the worst player on the field against Wolfsburg and that he is merely stealing a salary at the moment. Is this what happens when you pick your captain before picking your team? Seems to be a growing trend in sport at the moment. As pointed out on www.101greatgoals.com,

United fans took to Twitter to voice their disapproval.






The writing is on the wall when 86% of a United fan account’s followers think Rooney should no longer be an automatic starter…


  What are your thoughts on Rooney’s current form? Should he be dropped?  

Did I write this to make myself feel better about Chelsea’s stars who are not performing? I don’t like to comment on wild accusations that might hold water.
