Brilliance, do you live in your own bubble of cum spewed forth over English "football"?
Panchester you are such a cock you know that.
Moaning like a bitch about how "when they are on form blah blah blah..." Means absolute fu** all. Like I said, when Eto'o was on form for his last season in Barca, he was the best striker in the planet, when Ronaldo de lima was in his best form in 1997, he was the best player in the planet. That doesn't mean fu** all now though. However I still think Eto'o is a better player than Rooney.
What exactly is there to appreciate about Wayne Rooney? His off the pitch antics? His loveable face. Guys, he tracks back, wins the ball once and instantly every English fan watching has an orgasm, and when he then sprays the ball to the wings for Valencia to run into the largest acre of space in the UK, everyone dies of joy. He is quite simply the most over-rated player in the world. He had a great season last year, but that doesn't mean anything now, because he hasn't shown any sign of being the same player.
And of course you can compare him to other attackers. If you are an attacker that can only play centre forward, then that instantly takes out out of the top 5 attackers in my opinion, because you need to be versatile. All of the other top players in the world play on the wings on occasion, so should Wayne. He doesn't sometimes anyway, so I don't see where your point is?
If you will take Wayne Rooney over Cristiano Ronaldo then you have serious issues. You just have this thing about Ronaldo because he left your bum buddy Rooney at United
There is a reason no one has put any offers in for Rooney but Ronaldo is the most expensive player to date. Regardless, Ronaldo scores more, creates more. His attitude might be poor, and he might not defend, but everything he is suppose to do, he does leagues better than Rooney ever will.
chicharito one of the players on that absurd list, wouldn't have half the goals he have if it weren't for the spaces Wayne creates for him
This is utter bull sh*t, why does berbatov not have the same goals per game ratio or more than Hernandez then? Watch a United game properly, instead of ball watching like the box standard arm-chair fan that you are, and realise that Rooney's movement off the ball is no where near as clever as Hernandez's. If anything Hernandez makes his own goals, and creates chances for Rooney, only for him to miss.
or a false 9
Wanna compare him with some other false nines? Ronaldo and Messi always play this 9.5 position, and both have more assists and goals than Rooney. If he is such a play maker for the team, why no more assists? If he does so much for the team, then why is United's win ratio with him nearly the same as without him? Compare that with Ronaldo and Messi, both of those players are basically pivotal to how well the team plays, and their chances of winning.
put another way, united without rooney would have been knocked out much earlier in the champions league
Rooney has only played 8 games out of a possible 12 in the champions league, and scored only 3 times. Two of those goals had no effect on the result of the game.
