Rooney Stayed On The Pitch For 90 Minutes… For A Change

The Guardian: Wembley’s corner-flags remained unmolested as Wayne Rooney capped a quietly effective game with two simple yet well-taken second-half goals, the fiery striker marking his return to London by staying on the pitch longer than those around him for a change.

Did Skrtel Handle Wayne Rooney?

“Skrtel knows Rooney quite well and he can stop him all the time,” said Slovakian coach Vladimir Weiss. “We believe he can do it again on Saturday and avoid any danger. You know Skrtel is a very tough player and knows how to handle Rooney, he is a good defender.”

VIDEO: Rooney Is England’s Saviour Again… Whilst Evans Gets His First For NI

Following a week of slatings in the press and the England manager Fabio Capello calling him a ‘crazy man’, Wayne Rooney went on to score two goals in England’s 4-0 victory over Slovakia.

How Did Carrick Get On For England?

The Sun: GIVEN the nod to start ahead of Frank Lampard after his decent performance in the 2-1 win against Germany last November. Did not make the best of it though as he was too slow in making passes and watched the game pass him by. Nowhere near his club form and in the company [...]

Rio’s Usual England Spiel

Rio’s Usual England Spiel

Rio Ferdinand has come out with the usual pre-match rubbish, ahead of England’s match tonight against European Champions, Spain. He reckons they’re the best team in the World but after beating Germany in a friendly, thinks England are good enough to take them. I’ll settle for Torres getting injured and United players going unscathed.

Carrick Won’t Lose Sleep Over England Place

Paul Scholes was overlooked by Sven-Goran Eriksson in order to accomodate both Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard in the England midfield. Scholes retired to focus on United, clearly not impressed at having to play out of position, and every manager that followed Sven asked him to reconsider. This was over four and a half years [...]

Ronaldo Makes A Prat Out Of Himself

There will always be moments when one of our players do something or say something which you know they deserve to get laughed at for. When Rio Ferdinand’s ‘You Got Merked’ programme was broadcast, I was cringing (until I saw Gary Neville tell that scouse copper where to go, at least). When the stories about [...]

Berbatov Injured As He Faces Thrashing From Vidic’s Serbia

Dimitar Berbatov was replaced in the first half of Bulgaria’s 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Serbia, with the injury believed to be his hamstring. He is now obviously a doubt for this weekend’s match against Aston Villa. It could have been much worse for Bulgaria when considering that Serbia missed two penalties. Fortunately for [...]

BBC’s England Man of the Match

Michael Carrick! Well done lad. Nice to see even when we only have one player representing the national team, one who is always overlooked in favour of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, that he is giving a good account of himself. I didn’t watch the game so don’t expect any more from me on it!

Carrick Disagrees With O’Shea On Ferguson and International Duty

Yesterday, John O’Shea claimed that despite what people may think, Sir Alex Ferguson is very supportive of his players going on International duty. With a friendly scheduled for tomorrow, something which Ferguson has branded ‘a waste of time’ in the past, our manager is obviously less that impressed, particularly when considering the injuries we already [...]

Ferguson NEVER Tries To Talk Players Out Of International Duty

International matches take place this week meaning several players came off ‘injured’ during the weekend’s Premiership fixtures. In the past, Ferguson branded Internional friendlies, like the one England will be playing against Germany on Wednesday, ‘a waste of time’, after Darren Fletcher picked up an injury whilst playing for Scotland. “We’ve had a bad blow [...]

Race Row: Rio vs Arsenal’s Fabregas

Rio Ferdinand sensibly called for the FIFA to start docking points of teams whose fans exhibited racist behaviour. Following the pitiful fine FIFA dished out to Croatia after their fans made monkey noises whenever Emile Heskey was on the ball in England’s recent, Ferdinand was concerned at FIFA’s poor commitment to kicking racism out of [...]
