I remember it well, sat in the kop. thought at the time he'd never get anywhere - petulant 17 year old.. How wrong I was...

December 26, 2002

On as a substitute, the 17-year-old, who was playing for his boyhood club Everton, went flying into a challenge with Birmingham City defender Steve Vickers after his control had let him down. Referee David Elleray had little hesitation in brandishing a red card, although Toffees boss David Moyes would later insist that the offence only warranted a caution.


And now back at Everton, Pyjamas and all. Can't knock him - record MUFC and England goalscorer.

KRO,

C.

I have never rated him since 2004.

Since then he has been a flat track bully playing in very good teams but himself only performing and scoring against inferior competition. He scores in internationals but only against the likes of Estonia, Slovakia, Cyprus etc.. He never performs in the major competitions. The same in European club competitions where he scores in the group stages but never performs in the big knock-out games. Likewise in the Premier League he scores against the likes of Watford, Blackburn, Blues etc but is not so obvious against Chelsea etc.

When at Man U he has always been the bridesmaid up front - second to Van Nistelroy, second to van Persie even second to an ageing Ibrahimovic.

Overrated who never lived up to the hype in the early 2000s.

Thank goodness we've heard the last of him.

I don't think you have heard the last of him by a long shot. Not a prolific goal scorer but over the past few years has scored some sensational goals.

I guess what you are saying is that he has conned all these managers who have chosen him to be captain etc.

Well, I have never rated Rooney, or never rated the Hype around him. I think he gets to much media coverage and is scrutinised for everything his does on the pitch. I think he will do OK at Everton. Koeman rates him and he does have a great range of passes.

He needs a settled field position. At Utd he was played all over the place. He needs to sit deeper in the midfield as the distributer IMO.

Good luck to him.

Wayne has called it a day on his England career

Fair play to the guy , going out while he's on top, smart move....country's leading cap holder for an outfield player and the country's leading goal scorer and still playing in the top flight at 31 years old at the club where he first started his illustrious and trophy laden career


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/08/23/wayne-rooney-englands-record-goalscorer-retires-international/

As for this flat track bully nonsense , he scored the winning goal against Stoke on opening day and scored the opener against Manchester City on Monday night in a 1-1 draw , Man City are one of England's top 4 sides so I don't get this cr@p about he only scores against weaker sides

I recall the ugly tackle on Vickers at St Andrews in our very first season in the PL but he was a raw and over eager teenager (just 17) then but went on to win just about everything the game offers , there have been scores of much worse challenges than that ever since

Perhaps people like Jack Storer could take a lesson from him ....try and mature a bit and the world could be your oyster

Rooney has been of England's few truly world class players over the last decade or so.....Great memories of some of the quite excellent goals he has scored and he has won just about every major trophy out there too both domestically and in Europe .....never understood the vicious criticism he often gets


I liked this headline from The Telegraph


Wayne Rooney, last of the great English footballers, an appreciation

I agree. I just never understand why there were so many haters. Most premier league players can only dream of accomplishing what he has. :applause:

:LMAO:

What a Grade 1 t.wat he is.

I am a hater with all justification.

He's over-hyped
He's a flat track bully
He never performs on the big stage
He's ugly
He's got a horrible accent
He cannot string two sentences together
He loves granny aged prostitutes
He loves to drink and drive whilst taking a drunken woman home in her car in the opposite direction to his house, meanwhile his wife is away on hols.

He really is a prize .c.n.ut

What an absolute stunning goal by Wayne scored v West Ham, one of a hat trick.....he actually belted it from inside his own half and kept the ball quite low

Still a world class player .....but of course, it was only against strugglers like West Ham...... :LMAO: :LMAO:

Was it the best in PL History ??

It was a great goal for sure. The best? I'm not sure. I am pleased for him, given all the unnecessary abuse he has taken.

P.S. I'm also very happy I live north of the border. :dancer:
