Wayne Rooney has gone from being the star of Manchester United to being a player who has been dropped to the bench on a regular basis and this is something that never happened in the previous seasons unless he was injured or any other really good reason but now with the arrival of ZlatanIbrahimovic and Jose Mourinho, Wayne Rooney is seeing time on the sidelines despite being fully fit.
The 31 year old player is currently in an awkward position as Rooney has to decide to whether or not to stay in Manchester United where his role and importance in the Premier League club has seriously diminished in comparison to previous seasons.
Former Newcastle United and England international Alan Shearer said that he does not think that Wayne Rooney will be able to break his record in the Premier League.
Alan Shearer has scored 260 goals in the Premier League, and Wayne Rooney has currently scored only 194 goals in the Premier League.
Nowadays Rooney plays more in a midfield position, and it might be difficult for him to get enough goal opportunities that will allow him to overtake Alan Shearer’s record.
The former Newcastle striker said that he sincerely believed that Wayne Rooney would be the one to break his record but the Manchester United striker has failed to reach this mark. He said that Wayne Rooney has even failed to come near to the record.
Alan Shearer said that it is becoming increasingly difficult for a single player to score so many goals in the Premier League as players are more mobile than in the past. Players barely stay at a single club, and this can make it nearly impossible for someone to break the record. Continue reading “Rooney will not break record”→
The future of the English national football team is looking as bright as ever before and Wayne Rooney voiced his excitement in seeing how the national side is being filled with more and more talented youngsters.
“It’s an exciting team. I think it’s the most exciting squad I’ve ever been involved with, if I’m honest.” Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney said as he talked about the English national football team.
After the international retirement of Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole, Roy Hodgson has had to rebuild the English national side and Wayne Rooney praised the work that the head coach has made as Hodgson has turned the national team into a competitive one that has enough talent to compete against the best teams in the world of football.
England recently played a friendly match against Germany and despite having fell behind in the scoreboard 0-2, they still managed to make a 3-2 comeback and emerge victorious.
Even though it was only a friendly encounter, it still was a fairly important victory for England as the team was filled with young players such as: Jack Butland, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane. This shows that the next generation of players has what it takes to push England to victories against big teams. Continue reading “Rooney is excited about the future of England”→
Louis Van Gaal liked the fact that Wayne Rooney had an honest and animated discussion with teammates regarding the way they had played in the first half of the game at Liverpool the other day and it made a great difference.
The Red Devils were nowhere in competition prior to half time break and were probably lucky not to have got trailed to Liverpool by that time.
They were not at all appearing to be going to win that game.
But, after Rooney’s interaction to the players during the break, there was a change in the body language when the team reappeared on the pitch and the captain himself led the way with his first goal at the home of the arch rivals in about a decade.
According to Van Gaal, it’s very important to share honest opinions with teammates and he would be pleased if the players do that more in future.
The manager was quoted as speaking, “Being honest and frank in the dressing room is good. I liked it and I would say I want it to happen more in future.”
Former England midfielder Owen Hargreaves has said that Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney can have a positive impact for England in the final group game against Ukraine. The England striker picked up a red card in the friendly match against Montenegro.
As a result, he was suspended for the first two games of the book against France and Sweden. England manager Roy Hodgson resorted to using his Manchester United teammate Danny Welbeck as the starter in the two matches, which paid rich dividends. Danny Welbeck scored the winner against Sweden, and it seems that the team is much better with him up front.
However, Wayne Rooney will be available for the final group match against Ukraine. England need to ensure that they do not lose this match if they are to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition. England are likely to face former world champions in the form of either Spain or Italy in the quarter-finals. Even though the team has performed well in his absence, Roy Hodgson is expected to recall the services of Wayne Rooney for the match against Ukraine. Wayne Rooney’s former teammate Owen Hargreaves has told Man Utd news that he expects Rooney to be firing on all cylinders in this match.
‘He’s older and more experienced now and I’m sure he’ll have a positive impact on the team – he won’t want to leave the competition early after just getting started. He’ll draw on positive experiences. He’s had pressure on a day-to-day basis since he was a kid. It’s not going to be a problem. He’s going to come in and give a massive boost to the team and make it a better one. He’s the best player England have alongside Steven Gerrard. We need him in the team if we want to make it further,’ said Owen Hargreaves.
It would be difficult to merely stage out the quite greatest of the best concerning all of the players in England Soccer Gamers history. There are nonetheless, a pick couple of that stand out far more than other individuals. Although England has never ever been a group with excellent actively playing history, many of her gamers have a tendency to remain in the minds of supporters considerably extended than other folks. Taking individuals who played from the 1960’s and later on, Stanley Matthews, a winger, Tom Finney, a forward and Duncan Edwards, defender, have stood out for a long time in the minds of enthusiasts as excellent gamers.
Regarding goalkeepers, Gordon Financial institutions, Peter Shilton and David Seaman are inclined to live in the minds of enthusiasts as the best of all time. Excellent defenders for the England group consist of Stuart Pearce, Kenny Sansom, Mick Mills and today’s Gary Neville. Central defensive gamers Bobby Moore, Tony Adams and Terry Butcher presented the best performances of the team’s history. And of course, appropriate wing player David Beckham is a participant that enthusiasts from all over the world will don’t forget fondly for numerous years. Alan Ball, also a appropriate wing participant has taken the second location in the placement for very best of all time.
Left wing best players would have to go to John Barnes and Ray Kennedy, though Ray Kennedy never ever made it to a Planet Cup opposition throughout his playing many years from 1976 right up until 1980. Central Midfield player Bobby Charlton, who ended his occupation in 1970, would be selected as the finest for his place. There are a lot of positions to retain in thoughts when choosing the very best gamers of all time. Followers these days would most likely concur that Wayne Rooney is the best participant for the group this 12 months.

It would be hard to merely position out the quite very best of the very best relating to all of the gamers in England Soccer Gamers background. There are even so, a pick number of that stand out much more than other folks.
With just 3 days to go the pleasure is developing as the nation prepares alone for the subsequent instalment of anticipation followed by nearly certain underachievement from the “Golden Generation” of England footballers. Whether it is at the conclude of the group stage (unlikely), the final sixteen (feasible), the quarter finals (likely) or outside of, the England Football Team will return property, sore, bruised and full of excuses. But with Fabio Capello at the helm undoubtedly England will stay away from the ignominy of the penalty shoot out or the consequences of Wayne Rooney’s dismissal for a instant of Latin inspired madness? How well will England do and what are the team’s probabilities this time (more than any time)? With my crystal ball in tow this is what truly happens at the 2010 Globe Cup in South Africa………England have been provided a favourable draw: – no English player need to be fearful of Rene Krhin (Slovenia), the “never ever say die attitude” of Rafik Djebbour (Algeria) or the silky abilities of Carlos Bocanegra (USA). England stop up as group winners exactly where they confront a final sixteen encounter with (on no) GERMANY! And this is in which their campaign ignites.
Germany have 1 of the best documents of all the recognised footballing nations and England have a single of the worst! But this is not a classic German aspect and they misplaced their talisman, Michael Ballack, in one of the previously warm up fixtures. The Germans nonetheless possess expertise (you never ever compose off the Germans!) and their crew is made up of several world course performers with the likes of Bastien Schweinsteiger, Phillip Lahm and Miroslav Klose on display. But from the ease and comfort of my sofa, with feet outstretched on my footstool and with beer in hand the Germans are mastered and England defeat them:- in a penalty shootout! So who do England face in the quarter ultimate? It turns out to be the pesky Uruguayans and their prolific goal machine (and Manchester United flop), Diego Forlan. But Uruguay can not depend on just 1 gentleman and they do not have the strength in depth that the top groups will need to compete at this level. Diego might be 1 of the greatest goal poachers for Athletico Madrid in La Liga but in the World Cup Quarter Closing versus England, Ledley King “has him in his pocket” and the striker proves entirely ineffectual. The Three Lions win the game when Emile Heskey scores his eighth ever before England objective in a restricted and nervous encounter.
The Globe Cup Semi Ultimate sees the fashionable Dutch take on the at any time bettering English in what turns out to be a traditional Globe Cup fixture. Van Bommel scores early for Holland whilst England reply when Joe Cole conjurers up a bit of magic and lobs Van der Saar from exterior the box. Then England consider the lead when Crouch heads in from close range only for the outstanding Wesley Sneijder to equalise just prior to 50 % time. The 2nd half remains goalless and extra time is looming when Gareth Barry scores his 2nd ever England goal to get his staff towards the closing. With seconds to go and every single Englishmen down to his final millimetre of bite ready fingernail, Robin van Persie is tripped in the penalty place by the hapless John Terry…PENALTY!!! Van Persie himself measures up to consider the spot kick and as an alternative of putting his shot, he blasts the ball inches broad of Joe Hart’s left hand publish! The referee seems to be at his observe, blows and England are in their 1st Entire world Cup Closing given that 1966! Utter pandemonium as the nation celebrates in joyous unison (and all ideas of the current Tory / Lib Dem spending budget massacre are banished until an additional day!)England play Spain in the ultimate and are beaten by 4 objectives to nil.
