Probably optimistic. We have a minimum of 19 games remaining and playing in a deeper position a lower goal return is to be expected. Would be fantastic if he did pass Rowley.
Owen's fitness problems probably prevented him from breaking the record.This is something i'd be surprised if he does. Everyone said Owen would do it but that went pretty quickly.
Madrid is not all Rooney has in his sights. He is closing in on the dual target of 400 games and 200 goals for Manchester United.
And boss Ferguson has set him a target of 25 goals for the season — with Saturday’s cracker putting him on 14. He added: “It’s great to have played so many games for this club at such a young age and it’d be nice to reach the 200 mark.
“It would be an achievement I’d be proud of and hopefully I can get there between now and the end of the season.”
As for Fergie’s target, he told Inside United: “Yes of course I can reach that. It’s great for us to have so many forwards who can play well and score goals.
“That shows the quality we have in the squad. We’ve scored a lot of goals.
