Rooney is our best player by a mile, of course he should play!|
He did deserve that sending off, but he's made a big effort to cut that side of his game out. 'Twice as likely to get sent off as score'? I watch United every week, Rooney had one booking and zero sendings off last season and scored 35 goals. He's far more mature now.
Dougs, I get your point but what about when Hoddle was saying Beckham was a liability and then he got himself sent off against Argentina? That cost us more than Rooney's sending off did. Players do things in the heat of the moment, but unless they're really daft they learn from it, as Beckham did and as Rooney has, as evidenced by his disciplinary record since.
I'll be supporting the team, if others want to engage in doom-mongering that's up to them.
