I thought he was excellent. The worry of having him in a wide position is that he won't provide the width/pace/threat of a Lingard, Martial, Rashford... However when the latter three have played lately they have been so ineffective. The least you will get from Rooney is involvement in a game. He will always get on the ball, take the initiative and try making things happen... Now we all know that lately most of those things haven't come off... But when the alternatives are being so ineffective then I see it as nothing to lose by starting Rooney there.
