One of the most under rated footballers ever.

If a 16 year old Rooney came on the scene now the world would lose their shit.

Criminally so.

Could play in any position and be the best player on the pitch.

I'm sure there was a game against Newcastle(?) where he had to play the last 10-15 minutes at centre back and he was on the end of everything that came into the box, clearing it away from danger.

What a f***ing player. Easily one of my all time favourites. He was an absolute machine. Insane talent and has always come across as a decent bloke.

The fact that he came from a cess pit 100% made him what he is.

You mean that time that never happened, never would have happened, and was never even close to happening?

He was exploring a move to Spain as part of standard contract negotiations with United; he liked the idea of Barcelona, and which top player wouldn't have had their head turned by that side in 2010?

Obviously things got sorted quickly, and he stayed with United and went on to become the greatest goalscorer in the club's history. Not a chance he 'almost went to City'. It's bad enough when you turbo-post your usual pointless crap, never mind posting inaccurate shite.

Aside from his goals tally, the sacrifices he made to his own game and work he put in for the cause was immense. Without which, incredibly, he’d have scored a shitload more goals had he been merely focussed on doing so.

Top lad.

I mean.......did you actually miss SAF actually saying at the time that he wanted to leave, not to mention this forum's reaction to the news?

But whatever.

He was going to City in as much the same way that Ronaldo was; in other words, it was never going to happen.

There's microscopic amoeba on the underside of my toilet seat that have football opinions that I value more that yours, so I'm really not arsed about your "but whatever", pal.
