How do you view Man Utd's 3-0 victory over Liverpool last Sunday? Try put aside club allegiances in making your comment over that match. If you are a person who insists on absolute adherence to traditional rules or structures, or a person who has or affects to have a special appreciation of art and beauty, then, as Alan Shearer put it on Match of the Day: "The standard of passing for both teams was just so poor..." Yeah, that game was terrible, an ode to mis-hit passes and bad defending. If you are a short-attention span type who enjoys goals, thrills and spills, then that game wasn't so bad. There were plenty of chances and not all of them the result of individual -- or collective -- errors. If you are a tactical mind, then you might actually have enjoyed two managers with the guts to go beyond the same old, same old. Brendan Rodgers' choice of a back three without a recognized striker was bold and interesting while Louis Van Gaal's interpretation of the game -- in this case sticking Wayne Rooney and J . ...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger surprised by Danny Welbeck's speed, skill and finishing ability Arsene Wenger says Danny Welbeck surpassed even the Frenchman's expectations with hat-trick against Galatasary in the Champions League . By Jeremy Wilson, at the Emirates Stadium Arsène Wenger admitted that he had not appreciated that Danny Welbeck was a good finisher or so adept technically even after spending £16 million on making him the most expensive centre-forward in Arsenal's history. Welbeck followed Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney, Mike Newell and Andy Cole to become only the sixth English player to score a Champions League hat-trick. Asked what he had learnt about Welbeck in the past month, Wenger said: “I’ve learnt he’s a good finisher. Technically he’s very sound. That was a surprise. He’s technically clean and that he’s a good passer of the ball. “Honestly, I didn’t know he was so quick. I knew he was quick but he can be electric when he starts. He showed that instinct of . ...

THEATRE RENOVATION It was Old Trafford that did for Manchester United last season. The Red Devils lost seven times on home soil, as many times as relegated Norwich City, and after another reversal on the opening day of the season, to Swansea, Sunday’s match against QPR was must-win for Louis Van Gaal. And in a reasonably poetic twist, United scored three times before half-time at home in the league for the first time since that spring night in April 2013 when Robin Van Persie scored a first-half hat-trick and Sir Alex Ferguson won his 13th and final league title wit the club. 17 months on and the new era finally looks like it has arrived, with new signings Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria scoring and Wayne Rooney reaching 175 Premier League goals, a total only Alan Shearer and Andrew Cole can better. The last time United failed to win any of their opening three league games, in 2007-08, they won the fourth match and went onto claim the title.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has matched Thierry Henry's all-time Premier League goals record with his strike against QPR on Sunday. The England Captain picked up the ball from Ander Herrera before cutting inside from the left and beating Rob Green at his near post to give Louis Van Gaal's side a 3-0 lead before half-time. Rooney has now scored 175 times in the English top flight, the same as Former Arsenal hero Henry. The former Everton forward reached the landmark in 377 appearances, whereas Henry took just 258. Rooney is now joint third in the all-time scoring charts, and needs just 13 more goals to leapfrog Andy Cole into second. But he is still 85 behind former Southampton, Blackburn and Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer, who notched 260 times in 441 appearances.

Although England lost to Italy, they were creative and dangerous on the break and you love to see that. Raheem Sterling was clearly their best player and looked comfortable as the No. 10. Alan Shearer is insane to talk about putting Wayne Rooney back in center. Yeah, Sterling doesn't have much defensive discipline, but neither does Rooney.
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was slammed by pundits for his failure to score for England in the second-half of defeat to Italy. Rooney was shooting wide from an excellent position shortly after England had slipped 2-1 down that drew a lot of ire, and he has now not scored in nine World Cup finals appearances. Newcastle United icon Alan Shearer told BBC1: "It was that lack of quality in the final third that was our downfall. Rooney had his big chance and he failed to take it and, at this level in the World Cup, you only get one chance in the game and you have to score. "Mario Balotelli got one chance for Italy, and scored the winner. Rooney has still not scored at a World Cup finals and he might not get a better chance than that." Former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry echoed Shearer's sentiments, adding: "The result comes down to that Wayne Rooney miss and Mario Balotelli taking his chance from a great cross into the box. "There is a debate about whether England should play Rooney out o ...

World Cup Countdown (with a horse racing twist today in honor of the Belmont) -- Fact No. 6: A number of prominent footballers including Sir Alex, Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen, Harry Redknapp, Steve Mcmanaman, Paul Scholes and Alan Shearer own racehorses. Owen's most significant victory might have come when his horse, Brown Panther, won the King George V Stakes at Ascot in 2011. Rooney's namesake Switcharooney, meanwhile, failed to win a single race in a disappointing career. In 1978, the last time a horse captured the Triple Crown, Argentina won the World Cup with a thrilling 3-1 extra time win over Netherlands. Before the match, Holland accused Argentina of employing stalling tactics to delay the start in an effort to rile up the home crowd. In any event, the Dutch nearly took the lead in stoppage time when Rob Resenbrink's shot beat the Argentine keeper but caromed off the post. Afterward, Holland skipped the awards ceremony in protest. Argentina is currently a 4-1 second choice behind Brazil to win the ...

"Wayne Rooney hasn't the right mentality or discipline to be a world class player" - Joey Barton.

A weekend treat for all you England Football fans a new article by star writer Tom "Too sweet" Pitt Rashid... Overpaid. Egotistical. Uninterested. Unpatriotic. These are a few of the accusations regularly levelled en masse at the English national football team. The tipping point? The 2010 World Cup. England, with a spinal cord of world class talent, were expected to deliver. You know what happened next and you know whodunit too. Yet again, we crashed out of major tournament prematurely. Over the last 20 years England have had great teams. Think of the players we’ve had: Paul Gascoigne, Alan Shearer, Paul Scholes, Gary Linekar, Steven Gerrard, Ashley Cole, David Platt, Wayne Rooney, John Barnes, Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Gary Neville, Tony Adams, Sol Campbell. It goes on. On top of that, think of the players the England team never got the best of: Matt Le Tissier, Robbie Fowler, Steve Mcmanaman, Andy Cole, Ian Wright… Michael Owen? Yet still, nothing to show for it. The focal point of the debate co ...
Wayne Rooney claims Steven Gerrard should have been made England’s captain sooner than he was. Gerrard has captained England 30 times but often stepping up when others were out injured and he was only given the role on a permanent basis by Roy Hodgson last year. Alan Shearer wore the armband on Gerrard’s international debut in 1999 and he sat through David Beckham’s long spell as skipper. Then he had to wait for the honour to be passed from John Terry to Rio Ferdinand and back again. Rooney said: 'Steven has been one of the best in the world over the last 15 years. He has adapted his game a little bit. He is not going forward as much as he used to. But he has certainly got the ability to play a bit deeper and play passes out and drive the team us. That is what he does. 'He is our captain. We look to him to give us that drive. He does that. It is great to see. He has been doing it for years. I think he got the captain's armband a bit later than he should have. 'I feel he should have been named captai ...
Premier League in 2012/13 0: Manchester United became only the fourth side in Premier League history to not concede a single penalty kick in a season (Arsenal in 1999-00, Newcastle in 1995-96 and Bolton in 1997-98). 0: Both Tottenham and Swansea were not awarded a single penalty kick in 2012‑13 – only five other sides have not been awarded a penalty in a Premier League campaign before this season, with the last instance being Charlton Athletic in 2004-05. 1: West Ham were the only team not to win consecutive Premier League games. 2: Robin Van Persie became only the third player to win the Premier League Golden Boot award with two clubs (Arsenal and Manchester United), after Alan Shearer and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. 2: Only four players managed to reach double figures in terms of goals and assists – Juan Mata (12 goals, 12 assists), Theo Walcott (14 goals, 10 assists), Santi Cazorla (12 goals, 11 assists) and Wayne Rooney (12 goals, 10 assists). 2: Theo Walcott scored two of the five goals scored ins ...

Wayne Rooney under too much pressure for England - Van der Sar England are wrong to place so much pressure on striker Wayne Rooney, says his former team-mate at Manchester United Edwin Van der Sar. Rooney has scored 35 goals for England in 82 caps, but has netted just once at a major tournament since Euro 2004. And the former United goalkeeper claims expectation on Rooney is excessive. "There has been so much pressure on him and that is where England goes wrong," the former Netherlands international told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek. "You build someone up and really put all your money on him as the guy who is going to make England the world or European champions. "And if he doesn't succeed it's quite easy to cut him down again." The Dutchman acknowledged that Rooney has not been on top form recently and had been overshadowed by his countryman Robin Van Persie. "Of course, players can have indifferent seasons," he said. "Maybe for him it has been a lesser season, especially the last couple of games he did ...

Ok, whilst I agree that spitting AT somebody is quite disgusting, apparently, according to Alan Shearer, just spitting in the general direction of another player on the football field, is an offence so bad that it warrants a more severe punishment than a potential leg breaking, 2 footed, studs up, tackle. Controversial I know, but I don't believe Popov was actually spitting at Walker, I think he was doing what Wayne Rooney, for one, does at least 40 times in every match, spitting!
Wayne Rooney becomes only the 3rd player in PL history to have a double figure goals tally for 9 consecutive seasons after Alan Shearer & Frank Lampard.

Rooney proud to overtake Sir Bobby Charlton's Manchester derby goalscoring record The striker surpassed the United legend on Sunday, while also becoming the sixth man to reach 150 Premier League goals. Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has expressed his pride at overtaking Sir Bobby Charlton's record of goals in the Manchester derby, after his double in the 3-2 victory over Manchester City on Sunday took him to 10 goals against the Red Devils' top rival. The 27-year-old scored twice to put Sir Alex Ferguson's men ahead 2-0, before goals from Yaya Toure and Pablo Zabaleta put the three points in doubt, with Robin Van Persie winning the game with a free kick in the dying moments of the match. The prolific forward leapfrogged the Red Devils' club legend to gain the derby record and is now level with Manchester City's Francis Lee and Joe Hayes with the overall record of 10.

And, yes, I include the Fantastic Four from 1999 of Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.” – Alan Shearer , any comments ?

His touch, passing, vision, composure is outstanding. I try to copy him.” Alan Shearer: "“If you ask footballers to pick out the player they most admire, so many of them will pick Paul Scholes.

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes Former Arsenal superstar Thierry Henry is the finest striker to have ever played in the Premier League. Henry scored 174 goals in 254 league appearances for Arsenal prior to leaving the Emirates Stadium for Barcelona in 2007, while the French veteran added another strike to his tally during an emotional return last season. The Arsenal legend is third on the Premier League's all-time goalscorer list which is headed by ex-Newcastle captain Alan Shearer with 260 goals, while former Manchester United striker Andy Cole is second with 187. Rooney himself is in eighth position with 148 goals for Everton and Manchester United during his decade as a professional, and looked to Henry for inspiration while he was moving up the youth ranks. Despite Shearer being the most potent player the Premier League has seen, Rooney still ranks Henry above the Former England skipper, and says he was always entertained by the record Arsenal scorer. "I'd have to say Thierry Henry. Fro ...

Rooney's high five honour Wayne Rooney marked his first competitive match as England Captain by firing his way into the national team's top five goalscorers of all time. The Manchester United forward entered the World Cup qualifying game against San Marino on 29 goals but a first-half penalty and a second-half strike enabled him to leapfrog a famous trio - Tom Finney, Nat Lofthouse and Alan Shearer - and move into fifth place with 31. The only men now above him are Michael Owen (40), Jimmy Greaves (44), Gary Lineker (48) and United legend Sir Bobby Charlton (49). "Obviously it's a great honour for me, there are some great players there," Rooney told ITV Sport. "To be in England's top five goalscorers of all time is something I'm extremely proud of. Hopefully there are many more goals to come. I'm still only 26, I've got a long way to go, so hopefully I can score a lot more." England won 5-0 thanks to Rooney's double, a brace from Danny Welbeck and a final flourish from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but some pu ...
England 5-0 San Marino 12 October 12 22:27 ￼ By Phil McNulty Chief football writer at Wembley, BBC Sport Wayne Rooney led from the front to become England's fifth highest goalscorer as they eased to victory against San Marino at Wembley. Rooney - captain in the absence of suspended Steven Gerrard and injured Frank Lampard - scored twice to take his tally to 31 as England finally overcame some early San Marino resistance to secure a comfortable World Cup qualifying win. The Manchester United striker broke the deadlock with a 34th-minute penalty and Old Trafford team-mate Danny Welbeck quickly added a second as Roy Hodgson's side finally made their vast superiority count against the side ranked joint-207th in the world. Rooney then edged ahead of Nat Lofthouse, Sir Tom Finney and Alan Shearer in England's goalscoring charts with his second after 70 minutes as they improved what could be the vital factor of goal differing in the closing stages. Welbeck's knack for an instinctive finish was demonstrated onc ...
