    Nah i beg to disagree on this one... Rooney will go on to become a world class player and with the manures,he will become more powerful than he is at the tender age of 18... this pudgy kid doesnt let the big occasions fear him nor does he let those world class centrebacks get him nervous... gotta agree with Wenger when he said the signing of ROONEY will be the turning point for MANURES EPL challenge ...Wenger rates this kid very highly ..would have jump at the chance of buying him but at that staggering price of 25million???Only british players can command such high price for a kid tat age... it makes for an interesting season right now as three teams going hammers and tongs at one another ...what a season to look out for.Just hope Rooney will burn out and fade away by the time hes 24...while Reyes just gets better.... ;D

    That's funny, i think english players are underrated!!
    for instance sol campbell and ashley cole are not regarded among the worlds best because their names don't sound mainland european!!

    People like trezeguet and wiltord score one decent goal and suddenely they are the best things since slice bread!!

    Both Campbell and Cole were on the all-star selections for Euro "04

    I do think that Rooney's price was about right, he is still a tennager and has the prospect of having a wonderful career, that alone tends to hike up a players valuation.
    But we certainly do not need him, and I am not totally sure Man U do either.
    They have now bought 3 first teams strikers since January, and also have horse face to boot.
    Who the bloody hell are they going to play.
    I think Smith is a great player for them adds another dimension, and as he has shown against us in the Charity Shield & the goal he scored I believe against Norwich.
    To me Man U bought him as they were panicking.
    1) They have had a bad start to the season
    2) Horse face is out
    3) He as a big name player, and they didn't want to let anyone else get him.
    Who here believes they would have bought both Smith & Rooney, if Rooney had been available earlier, I feel sorry for Smith.

    Fergie has already publicly said that if NewU hadn't made a move, they prob wouldn't have bought him.
    I'm starting to think that old Fergie's going to try and mold Rooney into a midfielder to take over for Keano! May work, may not. Both Ferg and Wayne are pigheaded and stubborn.

    Miller or Rooney? If it's rooney, it's likely he will be a star there. As for miller, I haven't seen anything to impress me yet.
