The only way he will improve now is if he goes to Man Utd. No offence to Everton, but I think he's learned all he can/will there. A move to Chelsea would destroy his career, similarly a move abroad. So that leaves (really) Arsenal and Man Utd - either would further his career so so much and benefit him no end. Arsenal......I doubt very much. I hope for his sake he goes to Man Utd.

I think he's a bit young to move abroad and play for a foreign team, but if they want him they can have him, then maybe everyone will stop going on about him!
A move abroad didn't help Robbie Keane much.
I heard on 5live that they were trying to bribe Rooney into staying by saying he'd be made captain. That's crazy!

I'm going to the Roma game because we're on holiday in New York at the time so it's easy to get to New Jersey. The Giants stadium is massive! I just hope there's a good atmosphere since it will be half empty.

I'm row 23! My dad almost had a heart attack when he saw the price of four tickets!

Lol it sounds like you're the lucky one! It will be a complete non-drinking holiday for me on the grounds that I won't be able to get served anywhere!

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if Mr Ambramovich got bored with him after a year and replaced him with a new striker.

I'm in toronto on that date as well. Although I don't support 'Pool, it would be fun to go watch. Hmmmm, I wonder if my cousins have thought of booking tickets for it. I doubt it!

Another example is the ongoing Tour de France; France and Italy both have about 15 cyclists competing while the GB has none.
GB is actually doing very well in one cycling discipline and that's downhill mountain biking. Steve Peat has won the World Cup this year. And if I recall correctly he one the Championship cup a couple of years ago too.

Who cares? Sport is supposed to be fun and enjoyable, competitive sport tends to kill the point of doing it in the first place over time.

Watching Henman lose is also good! He's a twat!

A big move for anyone that young at such a stage in their career couold destroy them forever, the only reason he'd do well at Arsenal or Man Utd is because of Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger. I would trust these two, and the setups behind them to nurture the best young talent in the best way possible. I would not afford Jose Mourinho the same compliments.

Plus, playing for Chelsea would mean he's expendable.

Hmm, i agree - i've heard reports that say rooney is going to turn down everton's new contract offer, so who knows - he may end up at united (please!!). Come off it, rooney HAS to move if he wants to improve - he needs european football - and he's not going to get it at everton. moreover, i reckon that the set-up at united would suit him right down to a tee.

David Moyes is trying to keep Rooney by making him captain of Everton- which is pretty sad#

3)Rugby Union Any game of rugby where you are relying on getting a penalty or a chance to have a drop goal rather than score a try makes the game dull.
LOL, a group of "Northerners" realised this about 110 years ago and formed the "Northern Union" which subsequently gave birth to what is known in the present day as Rugby League.

The very nature of Rugby League *usually* leads to a more exciting game and although the national team is currently not very good we have been good in the past and probably will be again in the next 5 - 10 years.

Had the whole breakaway never taken place I believe that "Rugby" would have eventually evolved into something similair as to what is currently known as Rugby League.

Interesting how Union has openly admitted experimenting with a 5m offside rule at the ruck and have also played matched without flankers to see if it made the game more open and thus exciting.

I watched the R.W.C. and only saw about 2 - 3 games that were any good thoughout the whole tournament. Semi-Final against France was like watching paint dry!

Not again. I'm a huge supporter of rugby league, but posts like this will inevitably get people's backs up. It's a fair point about the generic use of the word "rugby" though. There's far too much animosity between league followers and union followers. Both codes are far superior to the round ball game in my opinion. Fair enough, flag up the point and start a new thread on it, but the for and against RL has riped too many topics to shreds and the argument you've put forward isn't really relevant to the topic at hand.

thats why sport is getting worse in uk, becasue there is less competitve sport and competition is discouraged and everyone i becoming more cautious in every way. less competition so to not hurt fat peoples feelings, extreme political correctness and all the petty lawsuits etc.

sport IS doing good in uk though.

in football - disregard the rankings as they take into account friendlies which european teams dont care about and tend to minimilise.

in football england will always be about the same level. good enough to win a tournament at their best but never quite doing it. the team has improved under eriksson though no-doubt. overall, football is doing well.

in rugby england are the champs and are at the pinnacle of the sport even though the sport isn't really global. its like with poto winning the champions league then losing all their pre-season friendlies and getting knock out of their national cup. it doesnt really matter. only the big games matter and they lost their 2 best players.

in cricket theyre doing well in test but one-day doesnt mean that much and form in this can change a lot each year because its played a lot more often. theyve won tests recently and one-day tournaments so long term they are good but short term average/good.

AND in general theyre doing good like in rowing theyll win olympic medals in womens quad sculls and pair and mens four and maybe double and athletics theyve got paula radcliffe, kelly holmes, jade johnson, jason garenar, darren campbell etc.

in cycling (track) theyve got quite a few medals in them and the blue ribband world champ.

boxing=good

overall=good

TOO MUCH RELIANCE AND FOCUS ON FOOTBALL IS THE PROBLEM WITH THEM COUNTRY IN SPORT

How exactly will he fit into United's setup? They already have Van Nistelrooy, Saha and Smith. I think Rooney is a waste of money at this moment of time. They should give him a few more seasons to see whether he will still be world-class by then.

Sorry to sound so rude. I'm an United fan as well and it would be good to see Rooney here but then again, it would be bad if it made Van Nistelrooy and co unhappy because Van Nistelrooy CANNOT go to Real Madrid.....
