Just watched Every one of Rooneys goals and assists for United.
Sometimes you really forget how much of an outstanding talent that boy was.
I don't think he gets the credit he deserves from our clubs fans. For me there was never any better player than Rooney for Manchester United since he came to the club.

1 thing Jose does not have is a Wayne Rooney. Lukaku may be bang out of form although he does have certain skills, in my eyes he pales in comparison to Wazza who had everything. It's a shame our fans fell out of love with him towards the end,
I was sad when he left United. He epitomized the United team I knew for what 11 years. One also wonders if he had a better United team around him, is it plausible that we let him go to early?

I know a lot won't agree with me on here as I remember how people turned on him towards the end but my gosh what a player, in his prime he would get into my first 11, a striker who could play any position on the pitch.

{Ed025's Note - world class for me ross, as a person a total knobhead who was not helped by his dickhead family, but as a footballer he was top notch mate..

He was great but to me the best player i have ever watched playing for the club was Paul scholes.

At his best rooney was great no doubt about that. Scored lots of goals and played for the team always.
Stayed a couple of years too long imo but a great servant nonetheless.

I smell a Rooney debate coming. When will these ever stop? Are we still going to be debating him in 2052?

07 Nov 2018 09:22:54
No debate Shapps. Fantastic player, gave his career to United and is our top scorer. Respect where its due.

I will look back fondly on his time at United. Time heals old wounds.

A good player but declined too early and wasnt at his top level in his last 4 to 5 years at United.

Why does it have to be a Rooney debate shappy, there's no debate over other players who have contributed a lot lot less to the success of Manchester United.
I can't believe that people would question him, he scored 250 goals for our club, that is an amazing feat which will probably stand for decades, if ever beaten at all.
Ronaldo gets so much more respect from our fans, yet he was only here for 6 years and he left by forcing through a move to Madrid. Rooney was what 13 years at the club, yeah there were a couple of transfer requests but he never went, Ronaldo did.
Rooney was a no.9, a number 10, a bloody central midfielder for the best part of a season.
He owns record after record, look at all the great players that have played here, Rooney sits on top of them all with every record.
I honestly cannot understand why anyone questions him for club or even country.

Bull that he declined 4-5 years too early. he was in a declining team or a transitioning team, whatever you want to call it.
We had no midfielders good enough under van gaal so he had to play in central midfield for God's sake.
In the 3 seasons before rvp came to the club he scored 84 goals.
In the season before rvp came he scored 34 goals and was once again shunted our to the left or played behind rvp, could one really blame the lad for having his nose out of joint.
Rvp is looked upon so fondly by our fans for his greatness in 1 season, what about Rooneys greatness every season.

I'm with you Ross, legend.

Great player, but could have been so much more.

No one can take away his achievements, and he deserves a large amount of praise for them.

However, myself and probably most people feel a little let down by him in the end. If he worked as hard off the pitch and dedicated himself to his sport like Ronaldo did he could have achieved so much more. He also took the kids out of the club on a couple of occasions with transfer requests in order to leech a few extra pounds out of the club. His poor lifestyle meant he declined early, he peaked at 24 rather than 28. That is why at 32 he is playing in America while players such as Scholars and Giggs played on for a further 6-8 years at the highest level. I don't buy the he started young so was going to finish young. Giggs started at 17, yet he showed if you look after yourself in the right way you can go on well into your mid or even late 30's.

In the end Rooney did well, but he could have done so much more. To a certain extent I feel he wasted a huge opportunity that very few get the chance of.
