  • Good article. Kind of says what we (probably) all believe anyway - that Rooney is best in that deep-lying forward role - just behind a busy striker.

    That's why him and Hernandez work so well. Hernandez will pull defenders away and create space for Rooney to work his magic.

    Rooney has sometimes had to plug gaps in the team before due to his energy and vision. Fergie has sacrificed some of his attacking threat to make sure the team remains solid. But maybe now there is the right balance and right personel to prevent the need to pull Rooney out of that no10 role.
