“Whether or not Rooney was right to raise his concerns about United’s future plans, it is an inescapable fact that Ferguson’s team look a million miles from one that can win the Premier League or Champions League this season”
“Wayne has apologised to the fans and everyone connected with the club, so we have to put it all to bed now. There will be fall-out, but as soon as Wayne gets back on the pitch it will all be forgotten. The statement attributed to Wayne didn’t go down well, but we all make mistakes and United fans will accept that. It’s forgotten about as far as the players are concerned, as when our top players sign long-term deals it is a boost. Wayne is staying and we look forward to winning trophies with him in our team.”
This whole mess has taken on a new spin of course. Conspiracy theories now abound. There was some twit on Radio 5 earlier talking up the tale that Rooney and Sir Alex were in cahoots. The whole thing was staged in order force the Glaser hand.
Some other guy was convinced City had made a £40M bid (get this) ‘verbally’.
Whatever happened the key issue is that Manchester United must move on. What are your thoughts?
