    Mourinho mind games

    Loving the way he is making United SQUIRM over Rooney today.

    Got to love him!

    That said.....I thought Mourinho WAS Uniteds manager Rikki!?!?!

    • United isn't squirming at all. It's quite simple; if Rooney wants to leave the he has to put in a transfer request. Actually the way United said Mata and Luiz were included had Chelsea squirming and running around releasing statements. One in the eye for Maureen as I could imagine he's had to placate them, Mata especially.

      It's difficult to understand why Rooney is 'angry and confused' other than he's trying to engineer his exit, and badly at that.

      Moyes said "“I think he’s got a major role to play because we need to try and get as many goals as we possibly can. I think Wayne can play up-top he can play dropped in. Overall my thought on Wayne is he’ll be key. If for any reason we had an injury to Robin. Robin, we are going to need him. I want to be able to play the two of them, I want to be able to use Danny Welbeck, Chicarito as well. The first year I think I have to get a chance to see (all the players) and how best to use them. It’s a chance for me to get Wayne right back to where he was. That’s the challenge and a challenge I want to take on. I’ve also got to make sure it’s not just him and we don’t concentrate on him. Manchester United isn’t about Wayne Rooney.”

      Pretty well unequivocal statement by Moyes ... nothing about Rooney being a backup or stand in etc that's being quoted elsewhere.

    • Back to "caps lock" Mr Fabongrass ?...and such a taunting post....?

      ...I suppose the old adage... "once a troll...always a troll"... must hold true after all....

      ...I don't see any "squirming"...if Rooney wants out then all he has to do is say so....but he's not said anything yet..one way or the other....has he...?...except for snippets from "angry and confused of Manchester"...:)

      ...does it ever occur to you that Man U want rid.... and have done for a while...?...possibly since Rooney's one and only official transfer request to date...?...and that they might want to get little bit of money for him...even though he hasn't asked to go....and that SAF started the "mind games" shortly before his "retirement"...?

      ...and such a mystery that Rooney was sent home with a little hamstring injury...after being pronounced "fighting fit"...and to be getting on so well with David...:)

      ...and still no announcement from Rooney....a soundtrack of "should I stay or should I go now" playing softly in the background is all....whetting the appetite of rival clubs...:)

      ....as far as I'm concerned...they're welcome to him...let's face it...he's just what any forward thinking team who want to build a winning, synchronistic squad dream of....

      ...a fat, lazy Prima Donna who believes his own PR and thinks he's above playing as part of a team...a Diva who throws his toys out of his pram if he's expected to pass to other players who might just score as a result....a victim of his own success who has yet to grow up...even though he's getting over the hill in the footballing stakes...

      ...and as for Mourinho ....who was reported to want to succeed SAF at United....do you really think Jose wants Rooney...?

      ....time will tell..... lol....mind games indeed...:)
