    Did he kiss the badge because he was trying to antagonize the Everton fans or did he kiss the badge because he loves Manchester United?

    I personally think its a mix of both…. but if he did it just to wind up the everton fans I’m not happy about it at all…

    The badge he wears isn’t simply a logo. It’s a symbol of everything that’s great and glorious about the club and shouldn’t be used in such an unsavory context. Not saying he did, although some people especially the older generation may not appreciate his reasons behind it.

    Come on, it was Rooney doing it, not Lumpalard kissing his Scum badge.

    I thought it was in poor taste. Irrespective of his relations with the fans, he should not forget that Everton FC was responsible for his formative years and his early opportunities. It didnt help your cause yesterday either.

    I wouldn’t give a shit about this if he had played even half decently….But based on his very poor performance, this just looks like the act of a frustrated lad who was more concerned with winding up the everton fans than doing his job and playing football…
