10 Take-Aways From Manchester United vs. West Ham
1. Wayne Rooney is a United Legend. Now and forever,
2. Shinji Kagawa does deserve a first team place
3. so does juan mata
4. Evra’s successor will be Buttner.
5. and that may be ok.
6. Marouane Fellaini is not as bad as we thought he was.
7. Marouane Fellaini is not as good as we hoped he would be or need him to be.
8. When we play down the center, where our talent lies, we can win games.
9. We can still look like Man Utd. on the field when we are inspired.
10. David Moyes bought himself some time….
Wayne Rooney has a habit of popping up when Manchester United need him the most.
He had his first 20-goal campaign as a professional the season after Ruud van Nistelrooy left for Real Madrid. He passed 30 for the first time the season after Cristiano Ronaldo headed the same way.
And, Saturday against West Ham United, he showed United’s season didn’t end the moment Robin van Persie was ruled out for six weeks with a knee injury.
In a world where he earns £300k a week, he is expected to earn it. Paid like one of the best players in the world, he is expected to perform like one.
He sure is going out to show he is worth it. Would you begrudge the man that money now? not I.
