Wayne Rooney thread.
I'd be in agreement with that, just a personal view but i hate to see Rooney playing out on the left. I know there's been talk about him in midfield etc but the guy is a striker and that's where he should be playing up front.I though he regressed when he was put out to the left, i woul;d rather have him as an AM
I think this formation will only work as an emergency plan. The midfield would be very exposed with Valencia, Carrick and Nani, for example. Park, Carrick and Fletcher Could be more suitable. I think that would be valid only in an emergency case, like if all of our main wingers be injuried. But I still think it would be interesting to see this tested in a preseason game.How would Nani and Valencia fit in that? Only reason why i'm not keen on that. Could be a nice little Plan B/C I suppose though.
Personally i'm against Rooney playing in midfield but i can see why people would feel he could play there.It'll be interesting to see if we keep the same formation. It'll also be interesting to see him over the next few years and see whether he'll move even deeper into midfield perhaps.
