United Latest

Rooney !
Wayne Rooney admitted that he feared Sir Alex Ferguson’s famous ‘hair-dryer’ treatment after he made a blunder of a back-pass which led to a penalty – scored by Craig Fagan. However, spurred by this fear he then created two goals to put United 3-1 ahead, he also scored United’s first. Claiming Barclays man-of-the-match in victory against Hull City. 

Rooney had opened the scoring second before half-time from a Fletcher cross, but in the second half he made a blunder of a back-pass, Rooney was aiming for Kuszczak, however the ball ended up with Craig Fagan who crossed it to Altidore, Rafael could only concede a penalty and Fagan converted.

“Obviously when they got the equaliser it was a mistake by myself and thankfully we got the win, or I don’t think the manager would have been too pleased with me. It wasn’t a nice feeling, I didn’t want to let the lads down and at the time it looked like that but it happens and we got the win in the end.” he told ‘Sky Sports’.

Rooney took one glance at the gaffer and that was the start of his redemption; He drilled the ball into the area to Park, but Dawson turned it into his own net before it came to Park. Rooney was then involved in United’s third, his fourth, crossing it to Berba who gracefully hit home. United now lie in second spot, leap-frogging Arsenal and just 2 points behind Chelsea.  

‘Mad League’

Rooney added that he thaught this season’s Premier League has been a ‘mad’ one – definitely – United losing 3-0 to Fulham last week !, “I think it’s a mad league, a lot of teams are dropping points and it’s really close. Hopefully we can be more consistent in the second half (of the season) and retain our title. We knew it was a big game. We had some good breaks and thankfully we got some goals at the end.”

Rooney has already scored 13 Premier League goals this season…

Help up-front ?

Where would United be without their talisman – Rooney ?, He has now scored 13 Premier League goals – his best-ever return at this stage of a season, and has stepped up his performances. But Jamie Redknapp thinks he needs some help up-front; “United should be looking to buy another superstar forward who could help overcome the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo”, he told ‘The Daily Mail’. The absence of Tevez, but mostly Ronaldo may prompt Sir Alex to splash out on a good attacker in the January transfer window.
