Rooney fractures foot!

Sunday, August 12, 2007

Manchester United are going to struggle, they only got a draw against Reading, and Rooney is facing a spell on the sidelines after suffering a hairline fracture of his left foot. United are going to be gutted as Tevez and Saha aren't properly match fit so they could be short of goal power. However, I am sure they will find a way of knocking them in, with Ronaldo and Giggs still in form but it is nice that out of 'the big four' they were the ones to stumble.

at 9:56 pm  


I was listening to 606 earlier and some man u fans made the point that without Rooney, they are missing strength up front.

I think in a way, this may be have been Arsenal's undoing for the past few years. They have had skillful players, but no-one who can muscle there way into the penalty area, or the 'fox in the box'. Apparently Bendtner did this sort of role when he came on today, so I will be watching MOTD2 with interest tonight

Never heard of him, hope for your sake he is good. I still think that getting rid of Henry was a mistake, but then Wenger always seems to get it right in the end.

Interested at Grimandi's comments in the press that Wenger is having to do what David Dein used to do, and how they need to get on put a sporting director in place.

Unlucky about me trashing you at fantasy football, you still need to get rid of one of your teams though.

He's been on the books for a couple of years and went on a season-long loan to Birmingham last year and was quite successful. Has since signed a new 5-year deal and Arsenal and has been involved in the friendly matches that they've played. Has also had 8 international caps (Denmark), scoring 3 goals. Not bad for a 19 year old!

Have got rid of a team!
