Ahh, one of my favourite pictures that - alas it doesnt look like happening 40 years on after a disastrous weekend. Rooney as much as I hate him is clearly the best English player we have and no Rooney = no Cup much like no Landon = no mockery for America. With concerns over Rooney, Owen, Cole, Campbell (who was crap again today against Sunderland) and now Terry who stupidly played while hurt on Saturday, i have to say this is the worst build up ever to a World Cup we actually have a chance at. Very grim. So do we take Rooney? Terry Butcher says no but for me I would take him as he can win big games, Defoe, Vassell etc , they are just international filler. Just have to hope we get to those big games to get Rooney involved.
