Could not agree more!!! I think we all have accepted that Rooney is on the slide down and at his age and given how long he has been around that's no surprise. But what we saw in the first half of the season just was not acceptable. A player who as our main striker was hindering our play. Who's touch was poor, passing was awful and just was offering the team nothing.Not great but looks a sharper, fitter, re-energised player than he did in first half of the season and this is the minimum I expect of him now. We're not going to get vintage Rooney back on a consistent basis, we haven't seen that Rooney for many years but I'd take the Rooney of recent years who was capable of moments over the inept one we saw in first half of this season.
But he's hit a good run of form and looks like he will be our leading scorer again this season.
