We all know how Wayne has been bloody miserable since his hoe revelations, so I thought I would bring back the real Rooney before he moves to Manchester City.

I thought Sir A F was doing a good job with him , but it was always going to be touch and go.

Can we see Rooney as a 'European' ? and settling down away from home ?

I cannot.

He should learn from the example of Ryan Giggs

Is he now too big for his boots.

Time to move on methinks

I would not want him as a next door neighbour, but that is unlikely to happen. A few shitbags at News of the Screws decided to make some money by forcing me - and many others - to know something, which I would rather not know. A lot of people think it was very bad of him to prong some tart when he was getting none at home. It really does not matter what I or anyone else thinks about it. It is none of our bloody business and we never needed to know. He has been struggling to reach his very best for a few months, but after the tabloid bashing he got, that is probably not surprising. Oddly enough, the same scumbags who "exposed" his private life are the ones who also berated him for not saving England in the World Cup. I hope he recovers his confidence and form and I hope he plays well for Manchester United again. And I am a Manchester City fan!

Well I've just read that the reason for the bust up is that rooney is demanding £200,000 a week if he is to resign for Man U when his current contract runs out.

One single Payment of £100,000 would allow me to complete my Masters degree.

I wouldn't gamble it away or spend it on prostitutes ... well not all of it anyway ...

The thing is the media has taken Coleen to their hearts. Unlike the usual wag she comes over as a good role model, nice girl and mother to impressionable young girls. If Coleen had been anything like Jordan and the like Wayne Rooney would probably not have had so much bad publicity. It is has been his attitude towards Coleen and his fans that has made him very unpopular. Whether footballers like it or not the nation of fans of all ages are watching them and paying good money to see them play good football.

Rooney just is not firing on all cylinders these days and it's not surprising that he was on the bench on Saturday. The Glazers would no doubt like to get their sticky little mitts on the £60 million that Rooney could bring in on transfer. And the irony is that in the Premier League only Man City could afford to buy him!

I must agree with you alanabit, it was not only Rooney they ripped into but the Captain John Terry, Vice Captain Rio and other members of the team .Many England Managers of course, in the past have had the same treatment including Brian Robson, Terry Venables, Sven one England Manager and player after another. As you suggest they are the first to say "Come on Lads" before the first kick off, after their humiliation of the team and Manager and then have the cheek to criticise the team for not performing.
Rooney is not playing his best at all, he always wanted the ball, ran into areas where he could get it, non stop movement, superb ball control, dribbling past players exciting to watch and appreciated by lovers of the game (me for one).He now loses the ball often, he still has good passing ability and can open up a defence by this method ,but as an all round player he is not what he was. The World Cup was a disaster for him (and for us all)and much of his problems now started then.A.F demands high quality performances and is happy to give a bollocking to anyone who does not reach the standard he requires, he has proved himself a great Manager and trying to control a group of highly paid pre mad donas is not an easy task. He is under pressure however and Rooney is the answer to his problem if he plays to a high standard, as he is not doing that I suspect Rooney is getting too much ear bashing for a young guy that lives for praise and reacts against constant criticism.

I must not condone violence, of course, but I do understand why people occasionally thump press reporters and photographers...
I really do hope Wayne Rooney overcomes his differences with Ferguson and gets back on form. The whole business is a sad spectacle which feeds only the rats and the vultures in the press.

Wayne Rooney is nothing but a Croxteth Thug who was always a better boxer than a footballer. He should be at least castrated for his despical actions both on and off the pitch, or at best given a free transfer to Accrington Stanley who may be able to find a job for him- perhaps cleaning the toilets.
No one should ever be paid that sort of money simply for kicking a ball around a field -same applies to other so called sportsmen/women (snooker players. athletics etc)
ON second thoughts - Manchester United/City your welcome to him provided he never comes back to Liverpool (City not FC)

Ah, don't blame Rooney - he can get that kind of money, so he does. Blame those who pay him the money (management) and those who pay them in turn. Oh, I forgot, it's the fans' tickets that pay for it.

Well, stop moaning and stay at home. Don't go to watch a match involving players who earn undeserved salaries. Don't watch in on the telly either. Walk the talk. It's the only way you have to influence the situation.

Learn a new song instead. Or go to a folk club (which will cost you 1/10th the price of the football match ticket). Or save up and buy an instrument.

Rant over.

Wayne Rooney is a father. He is also, for many little boys (some girls too) a 'hero' (not quite sure why, but we won't go there)

He is a father who, far from standing by his wife when she was 'creating' his son, supporting, caring and loving her, 'for better or for worse', took off and had sex with some sleazy hookers, who, surprisesurprise, sold their stories for as much as they could.

He has to live with the shame of that, 12 years or more from now, when his son learns the gruesome details.

Even £200,000 a week won't be able to buy him his son's respect.

Meanwhile, his wife has been to Lourdes, yet again, with her family, in the vain hope of finding a miracle cure for her very sick young sister...and having to cope with the disgrace of her selfish baffoon of a husband.

Rooney has also let people see how disgustingly greedy his is, in times when so many are losing their homes, their livelihoods, their lives. He has revealed himself to be a sickening man, as well as a sick one, imo...and he may be able to kick a ball, but when it comes to scoring goals in the Net of Respectability, he misses, every single time.

I shudder at stories like this. I loathe overpaid footballers. I loathe football managers and Corporate Football Bastards who rule over their fans, seemingly brainwashing their dumbed down brains to part with ever more money from tickets to Club T Shirts made from The Emporer's New Cloth of Gold.

What has happened to football is exactly the same as everything else...It's soul has been sold to the Corporate Devil and nearly all those who work within it are also slaves to The Bastard of Greed.

What 'heroes' some choose for their children these days, eh?

Well, he's 24 years old. He has still not "grown up" as a player and, obviously, not as a man. But... there is hope in both cases. He has years yet on the pitch. Not likely on the wife.

In any case, I wish I could still frolic on the pitch and perhaps make a few bob. And, seeing as how I am not married, I might fancy some of that fun... but no matter what coin I might make, 1200 pounds seems a bit Sterling to me. For that kinda cash, I would want some discreet sex. And really, really good... ahem.

Just before the baby came along Colleen was getting a career together I hopes she keeps on with that and it would be good to see her make a success of it in her own right.

I did enjoy watching Rooney but whatever happened coming up for the World Cup lord only knows. Watching him was as interesting as a cold rice pudding. He is only 24 and should be at his best. He isn't the only sport's person to stray though perhaps he has been influenced by the wrong people who should be old enough to know better, who knows. A certain golfer was guilty of that but at least he got his act together on the golf course - eventually.

"Wayne sneaked an extra slice of jelly roll. that was rather naughty, but everyone knows he's a bit of a lad."

He's a double dealing, lying, dishonest man, who had his way with two hookers, who sold their story to the papers..and he did all this whilst his wife was creating his child, probably throwing up, feeling like death warmed up whilst still making a home for him to come back to, when he'd finished with his 'extra slice of whatever', completely innocent in the knowledge of what he'd been doing.

He then, I'd imagine, got into bed with her, slept beside her and carried on as if nothing had happened.

What a creep!

Had I been married to him I'd have divorced him the next day, taking his millions to book a first class flight to Mexico, then taking great delight in tearing up my marriage certificate, whilst having a Taco...

Then, I'd have gone back home, had my baby, and raised him entirely alone, not allowing that double crossing, lying, over-paid little jerk to have any access, because he showed his son exactly how important he was in his life when he made that decision to do what he did.

I'd also have found myself a man of absolute integrity, who would help to repair the damage that he'd done, both to me, and to his child. WHY she's taken him back I've no idea, because to do that to a woman at that place in her life is just beyond comprehension to me.

Ugh!

hi

So Wayne is going to stay after all !!

I say hooray for sanity. Wayne is a naughty boy, he is not the first and I am sure he won't be the last.

But IMHO he and football are best served by him remaining with Sir Alex Ferguson. Any one who knows anything about football history knows that extremely few players leave Manchester United and go on to greater things. Without the backing of this great club and it's manager most have failed after leaving for the lure of whatever it is that lures them to lose their senses.

I think that he has been listening to the wrong people eg his agent. Sure he wants Wayne to move.....cos he will receive even more money for doing what??? Setting Wayne up to be a political football and be reviled by the football public.

I hope that sense will now prevail and that Wayne can get back to doing what we all know he can do.... and that is play football.

As a Man U supporter I am just a little concerned by the about turn...didn't a young Portuguese player called Ronaldo do something similar just over a year ago???

Look where he is now....Real Madrid. um......

2) theres the Daily Mail readers - going on like its 1963 and the Profumo scandal is still raging. A married man doing that Carruthers....well I never did, and neither of my parents did, and its not really necessary, so leave it alone!

3) then theres the rest of us - the news of the world crowd who basically just love to read about and see pictures of famous people, and scoutmasters and runaway teachers doing naughty stuff.

So now that its settled where Wayne is playing footy, I'd say, 'Go on Wayne! get yer nob out and party on!. We're in the bigger society now and it cheers me up no end.'

Nope, it's just a 'mere' woman's opinion, that's all. But if you wanna support a lying, deceiving, greedy, selfish, self-opinionated little toe-rag, be my guest.

Could someone explain to me why...if a man behaves this way many men deem it 'acceptable'...yet if a woman did the same thing, she'd be classed a 'whore'???

Obviously, a woman couldn't actually doublecross a man at this point in his life though, as men aren't the ones who become pregnant. But trust me, if you're feeling like 'death', and some women, many women do when first pregnant, todgers, tits and teddies are the last thing on your mind.

This does NOT mean that men get the green-light to go out hunting bunnies because their ego's are feeling hurt, lonely and battered.

As for The News of the World, The Sun or The Star, I'd not even wipe my bum with them, let alone wrap my chips in 'em.

And as for this greedy little oik now being paid £250,000 a WEEK, well..I think that says it all about him, his manager, his club and football itself.

The Heavenly Game has become The Devil's Game, ruled over and participated in by people who don't give a fuck for their fans, or for anyone else, other than to take their money at every opportunity, play to their dumbed down brains and laugh.....all the way to their mansions, their 23 cars and their '450 hookers-in-a-bed-buy one get 449 free' nights out!

It's sick...it's perverse...it's insanity...but hey...it's FOOTBALL, right?

Every fan around the country, regardless of club loyalty, should wage war on these plonkers by staying away from games, turning their backs on the whole damn lot...but of course, they won't.

Anybody who loves football, will never stop supporting their team.
However, that doesn't mean that as such we condone what some of these players do.
Rooney is a ratbag to his wife. However, to the football club and TV etc etc, he is a brilliant player and they, in principal are only concerned what he does on the pitch (that is very similar to working for any company).
Personnally, the huge amount of money plied into football is sick.
Maybe for every transfer, the Government should take 50% and of course hit the players hard and get the tax off them.

I would just love it, if we banned all foriegn footballers and put a max on wages and transfer fees. It has just got so much out of control, it is in danger of imploding on itself.

Even football clubs and fans should have consciences, Arthur.

Sorry, but I'm done with these kind of people. The money, the greed, within football is both sick and sickening. It has poisoned what was once a good time game. It has also poisoned so much of society, where these greedy jerks are held up as some kind of hero, purely because they have good eye to foot co-ordination.

I can only hope that Jimmy Hill hugely regrets what he started when he got meagre wages increased.

It is now way out of control and for anyone to support any club that feeds greed so outrageously, paying football oiks £1 MILLION pounds every single MONTH, is staggerinly wrong.

The fans should be seethingly angry. They should have the integrity to walk away, but of course, they won't, because for some odd reason, this 'tribal warfare' game feeds something deep inside most men, which is to do with victory.

Football is the new face of War, I guess, fuelled by its own Weapons of Mass Destruction, which sadly, reach far out into society as a whole.

There are people in the world DYING, who have no homes, no jobs, not even fresh water to drink, whilst others are saying they want more than £200,000 a WEEK because they're 'worth it'...

IF this prat took his £250,000 and gave it to charity, THEN I might have some respect for him, but nope, it'll all go on Rooney's Wants.

The other things I don't understand about football today is this..

I'm told that football is The Working Man's game. Ok, so if some upper class oik was saying he needed more than £250,000 a week, most from the football supporters world would be baying for his blood, staggerd, shocked and sickened by what they were hearing, but...because they regard Rooney as 'one of their own', it's apparently OK and utterly decent?

What total crap. What total inverted snobbery crap.

Wrong is wrong, no matter who it involves, or where they come from.

Rooney and his club are no different from the Wanker Bankers who are also rubbing the public's nose in their vast salaries and bonuses...and the outcries against Rooney and his like should be just as loud as they are against the Corporate Bastards.

They are all one and the same..and to support *any* of them, is, in my book, pathetically wrong.

hi

The Rooney "saga" goes on and highlights an illness in Football. However surely the same kind of "sickness" occurs in other so-called arts. Actors,singers, ballet dancers , pop stars ( what-ever they are)...etc etc. They are driven by greed and power.

Lizzie - I don't find Rooney's off the field antics acceptable at all. But he is by no means alone in his infidelity. It is rife in today's society. It is not exclusive only to the rich and famous - we only hear about them.

And I believe that today that both sexes are equally guilty of the sort of behaviour that we all point accusing fingers at Rooney for.

I regularly watch Manchester United as did my father and grand-father before me !! I go to be entertained by good quality football - most of the time Man U do deliver on this score.

Players going off the rails is nothing new and I am sure that we can all recall several such players without any difficulty.

I am not saying it is right that off the field behaviour of current players behave as they do but mostly I am able to ignore these exploits as separate from the performance on the pitch.

As a person I do not rate Rooney and his like, very highly but as a footballer he has infinite skills that set him up as one of the best footballers in the World.

Surely it is the system that is to blame not Rooney ???

Blimey, good job Hitler didn't play for Man. United then!


Sorry, but if someone's being paid one bloody million pounds a month, then I have little sympathy if his life isn't his own any longer, especially when he's having tantrums, PUBLICALLY, because £800,000 isn't enough for the spoilt brat.

How DARE he dare to behave that way when so many people are losing their jobs, their houses, their whole way of life. He's not better than the Queen when she stood watching Windsor Castle burn down, talking about her 'annus horriblis' and expecting her people to pay for the repairs..not caring a jot that so many of her people were losing their castles, for life and beyond...

Discretion in Recession should be tattooooooed over Rooney's private parts, then he might remember..

If I don't have respect for folks, that's it...out goes their music, their books, their videos, their football tickets, whatever..


And his private life DOES matter, actually, because the way he conducts himself does get into the paper, and well he knows it. It's no good him bleating on one minute, then grinning triumphantly all over the front pages, the next. AND...it matters because for some extraordinary reason, this bloke is looked upon as some kind of hero by many little boys (and girls)...

Maybe Bill Gates will get him to donate 90% of his fortune to charity one day, who knows...and Colleen can do the same thing..and the Beckhams..and all the rest of 'em from Hello Magazine...

Ugh!

I've still not recovered from several years back when I sat spellbound watching the dreaded 'Posh' clambering over a Brazillian rubbish dump, sobbing her heart out over a little girl who lived on it, made her living from it, for a pittance a day. Posh sat there, wailing how her Romeo and Whatisface had never had it so good, and she'd never realised how lucky they were, how much they had...Oh purleeeeeeze!

Probably nobody explained to Man U that Kansas City teams tend to lose 6-8 games, then defeat the top-rated team in their sport. Top-rated teams find this hard to take.

People who don't know about this fail to understand how we can be fans of such losers at the Royals, the Chiefs or the Wizards.

Don't think so Leeneia, say what you like about British sporting teams they are totally unpredjudiced, and will lose to absolutely anybody.

Failure is hardwired into the British psych. We all love Captain Scott who got evrybody killed on a brisk walk to the south pole; people recall with joy the exact circumstances of Maradonna knocking a goal in with his fist; Stuart pearce's missed penalty; Bob Massie skittling the entire English cricket team for 70; Mike Gatting getting his face in the way of the West Indian pace attack; the year the English national football team got knocked of the world cup by some part time Swiss bank clerks B team, the list is rich and endless.....

Wayne Rooney being literally too shagged out to run after the ball in the world cup, has entered that honoured pantheon with flying colours

Perhaps the expression "toe-rag" might have been invented to apply to Rooney. As Peter Cook might have put it, he is "proficient in the feet department". At least he used to be.

As\for footballers money, maybe the thing to do is allow clubs to pay what they like, but levy a charge equivalent to whatever they pay in wages or transfer fees not on the player, but on the club.

This is aging me but, I remember when the famous Danny Blanchflower was sold from Aston Villa to Spurs.
The story I heard is he did a stupid thing. He shagged one of the directors wives and that is just playing with fire. So he was shipped to Spurs for £30000. Other reasons were proffered for his transfer.
How true that was I will never know as in the 50's players were always considered to be respectable and things were shoved under the carpet.

Perhaps footballers should take a look at their cricketing brothers on how to behave. I expect they celebrate and have a good time when everything is going well and feel down when it is not but they don't appear to let the fans down with disgraceful unruly off the pitch antics and they can put a sentence or two together too when addressing their public. If it was a rugby player who behaved badly as one or two have done they are out, kaput.

With Rooney it is not so much what he has done in his personal life it is just the man. For the length of time Colleen has known him you would have thought that she must know the real man well by now unfortunately babies don't change bad relationships or husbands. His attitude towards her was so cold, similar to his attitude during the world cup. From beginning to end he had a face like a smacked backside. George Best at least was a charmer. I am not saying that excuses it but his demon mostly was alcohol (I am not sure if drugs were involved) and it did get him in the end like a lot of 60/70s icons.

Also maybe Rooney doesn't quite have the "genius" that Best had.....but he has turned many games with just scoring goals !!!

Ferguson wouldn't have gone into bat for him to stay if he didn't think he was worth it. Better players than Rooney have been shot out of the door before now !!!

Even if United did decide that they could spend the money they would get for Rooney there are not many around who would come that would be worth buying. Benitez tried that and look what has happened to Liverpool !!!!

hi patsy

I am not sure that you are right about picking the "good" behaviour of cricketers to compare with footballers..

The antics of the Pakistan team leave a lot to be desired !!!
Chris Broad has been hauled up for "ungentlemanly conduct on more than one occasion. There have been many match-fixing allegations etc etc.

My son plays cricket and this year while watching him play I have seen several unsavoury and dangerous incidents eg a batsman striking a fielder across the head with his bat - abowler punching the umpire for not giving a batsman out - and several "Chris Broad ball throwing incidents",

There have even been cheating cases in Rugby Union only last year with "blood incidents".

The thing is that football is in the spotlight and the headlines ALL THE TIME. And Rooney at the moment catches most of the bad headlines at the moment.

I anm not saying that I like the man nor do I approve of what players like him earn but we have to face the fact that Rooney plays in front of crowds of 70,000 plus every other week and he puts bums on seats. So one could argue that he earns his money.

Being 55, Mike, I remember George Best extremely well. In my mind he's the best footballer there has ever been, apart from Pele. George is the only person who actually got me watching football, because I was fascinated at the way the ball seemed to be 'attached' to his foot.

George also oozed natural charm, which wasn't egotistical, but simply the way he was. I've heard Michael Parkinson saying, many a time over, that George was the kindest, sweetest person he knew...and it was, sadly, because of that natural charm and open manner of his that he ended up becoming an alcoholic, because, as Parky says, so many people wanted to buy him a drink. Everywhere he went it was "George, have one on me!"...and George didn't quite know what to do. He hated upsetting people, and so he accepted..and accepted...and accepted...

In private he told Parky how much this upset him, because he found himself becoming addicted to drink. Parky told him to just say "No, thanks", but it never worked out that way...because always there was another person, and another and another...And I can recall, after George had died, how sad Parky sounded when he talked of this, how so many people helped George on the road to drink, without ever realising it, without ever knowing...

His wives/girlfriends seem to have stayed very good friends with him..
and his last wife, Angie, stayed and stayed and stayed, throughout the abuse of the alcoholic, because she dearly loved the man, but in the end..even she could take no more as the demons overtook him...

He was very much a part of the Swinging Sixties...blessed with a very handsome face, and a skill that was mind-blowing. As to wages and wanting more, I don't know about that, but certainly footballers back then didn't get the sickening amounts they do now. I'm sure George earnt a great deal from many other things, as well as football...

Sadly, I guess he drank most of it. Such a terrible end for such a lovely man.

Here you can hear him talking to Chris Evans about many things, but the bit I find most interesting is when he's talking about always being 'three moves ahead' when he played football...not knowing how he did it, how it happened...and he says that most of the great players have this skill...

If you read 'The Gift of Dyslexia' by Ronald Davies, you'll find that many athletes are dyslexic. Was George? Who knows, but dyslexic people see in pictures, we have films running through our heads....My Dad, so we found out after his death, wrote perfect 'mirror writing' as a child, struggled to read and his writing, although beautiful was laboriously created by him, slowly but surely...Playing chess with my father I knew that he was always several moves ahead of me, of any opponent, knowing where they'd move, what they'd do, how he's respond...No-one ever beat Dad at chess...and he'd always start off giving them his Queen too. Still, no-one ever beat him, not until after he'd had a stroke, and then I knew he'd lost that ability to see ahead, due to a changed brain pattern I guess..

Anyway, here's George..

hi Lizzie

You are of course quite right about Geaoge Best being a very likeable person. Everyone liked George. He was charming and as you say very good looking and attractive to the other sex.

You are also right about him being possibly the best (no pun intended) footballer ever. Many say that if he had been born English and been able to play in the later stages of the World Cup he would have been even more famous than the great Pele....another gentleman by the way.

My wife met George. At the time she owned a pub here in Cheshire and George came in with some friends. She served him....ORANGE JUICE !!! So every time anyone talks about George being an alcohic she always brings up this fact. She also talks about him having the most " beautiful eyes".

I have seen George play many times for Manchester United and he was always fantastic. Many players tried to stop him by being physical and fouling him all the time but George was clever and managed to avoid or ride most of the fouls.

In another message on this thread I said that Wayne Rooney put bums on seats. I didn't express this in the way I meant. I meant that as a member of Manchester United he WITH THE OTHER PLAYERS put bums on seats.

But George Best certainly did on his own put bums on seats. In his later years he came to play for Stockport County and he took their gates from under 1000 to 10,000+ every time he played. He increased the gates at every other club he played for. Whatever George was paid he earned it.

I too enjoyed the wonderful skills of George Best , but I must mention my other two hero's Bobby Charlton and Jimmy Greaves.
I was lucky in the early days being a Chelsea supporter then (not now)and seeing Jimmy's first game . He was a natural goal scorer and scored on his debut as he did with other clubs.From the age of eighteen he scored some fantastic goals and went past players as if they did not exist. He was rubbish in Italy, but won everything with Tottenham. The game changed not long after that, the heavy mob came in ,the twinkle toe boys who danced around players were flattened. Rooney fits the modern game, an X boxer, a hard nut with some talent (when in form). That is why he gets his money.I do not know if he is active in the Charity World , his Wife is completely involved with trying to help her seriously ill Sister, although I notice that they are both on holiday.
As a final note ,I must say that the letter published in The Daily Mail today Alan Day Basingstoke is not me, or any relation. I did work there once however.

But I bet the personal example set by Best in the 1960's was pretty worrying if you had a young daughter of son. people were even more gormless and uneducated about sex in those days than they are now.

the thing that wayne and george have in common was that were and are so rich that they didn't/won't spend a lifetime sorting out the havoc they make/made of other peoples lives.

"George Best will always be remembered as a drunk who put two fingers up at the great work carried out by those involved in organ donation. Someone's life could have been saved with that transplant.

A number of people returned their donor cards thanks to him."


George Best started out in football as an incredible footballer..There has never been anyone who has surpassed his natural and unique talent, in my opinion.

Little by little he became a 'celebrity'...this shy lad from Ireland with the film star looks....and everyone wanted to buy him a drink...Ask Michael Parkinson, who was a good and dear friend of George Best for most of his life. It saddened Parky deeply to watch this brilliant footballer and lovely man slowly turning into an alcoholic, because he never liked to upset people, never liked to say "No, thanks" when folks were almost beside themselves in their rush to get him a drink.....

And so...he drank..and drank...and drank, until he became totally addicted, not just to alcohol, but to fame...and little by little his downslide began.....and all those who had built his upslide, now sat round like the Guillotine Knitters, knitting his downslide..tuttutting, shaking their heads...

Do you know what it's like to be an alcoholic, Richie? Do you understand the self loathing, the self disgust, the terror, the fear, the tremors, the addiction?   

He tried so hard to fight it...and lost...finally losing that final battle.

Yes, George played a big part in his own downfall, but the whole thing was started for him by the adoring public, who, like you, chewed him up and spat him out at the end of his life...

Maybe George couldn't cope with having the liver of another person inside him...did you ever think of that? They can get you to fill in forms, counsel you till the cows come home to see if you're 'suitable' material for the transplant material...but at the end of the day, you have to spend the rest of your days knowing the someone died, to give you life and part of them is inside you...and perhaps that freaked George out...

Maybe it was his marriage finally caving in, despite his lovely wife having stood by him for so long...

Maybe he simply lost the will to live..and being in the spotlight again, this time for his liver transplant, became just too much too bear.....

George Best was a brilliant footballer and a lovely man. Sadly, the Beautiful Game took him down Ugly Paths, but he wasn't a bad person, he wasn't a selfish oik.....

Parkinson met the rich and famous of the world, interviewed thousands of people, could spot the phoneys and the bastards with his eyes closed, but he always held George close to his heart...and that, I think, says FAR more than you could ever hope to say about a man you never even knew.

The George Best Foundation

And if you read this, you'll get an idea that perhaps George was 'on the circle', a brilliant talent, intelligent, but very quiet, shy almost at times...often unable to put his feelings into words...Alcohol numbs the pain, the fear......

Michael talking about George

"..George Best was sometimes a difficult man to defend in the aftermath of a drunken episode.

What was never a problem was to talk of his genius as a player and to love him as a friend.

That was easy."

Rubbish. They probably returned their cards because they weren't sure in the first place and that was the excuse they were looking for...

I've handled 'graft material', corneas....spoken with morticians, done the 'Hi there, do you have any corneal graft material for use for today, please'...then held on whilst they go to check who'd died that day....

Quite frankly, it was bloody awful...barbaric, even though I got to see the other side of the operation, when someone had their sight restored...

I think far more money should be put into developing manmade graft materials....and that we should go back to allowing the dead to die with dignity, treat them spiritually, rather than see their bodies as a harvest to be plucked for the use of others...

Just my personal thing...and I'm absolutely 100% against all of us being 'viewed' as donor material unless we've specifically requested not to be...That's the most awful thing to try to bring in...

Not really. I'm sure there are more than a few folks who've had transplants, who, at the time of surgery, were desperately grateful, wanting to live, wanting to show their appreciation for what had happened to them....but hey, you know, sometimes 'life' gets in the way, and things don't have the endings you may anticipate.

If you want to piss all over someone with your nasty words, then at least do it to someone who's still alive, better yet, someone who knows you, so that they can at least bop you on the nose with your unpleasant, uncaring, unfeeling arrogance...

Everywhere you look there is someone banging on about it so if Rooney doesn't take it on board then that's his own fault and deserves all he gets. He has to remember though that there are going to be other young talented players coming along to take his place.

He appears to have re-found the energy and skill that he showed until the World Cup disaster.

On Saturday his movement and running off the ball was fanastic and his distribution superb.

Oh and he has scored a few in the last few games.

Wayne leaving???? Don't think so.

Wll well City V United Semi.......!!!!

But what idiots decided to move the semis to London ??

Certainly not the supporters. Three teams from Manchester area and the other from Stoke ; just a cockstride away.

I can not see either Stoke or Bolton defeating United at Wembely without a bizarre stroke of luck. The only fly in the ointment could be tired legs. Unlikely as it is that City will win, they are now as good as out of Europe, whereas United look likely to progress at least another round. Possibly United will have secured the league title by then, so Ferguson will be able to rest tired players and put out reserve teams in league games by mid-April. By their standards, this is not a particularly inspiring United side, but they look a cut above anything else around in the Premier League at the moment.

hi alan

I saw the last United v City game and I don't think United beat them easily. It took a "wondergoal" from out of sorts Rooney to turn the game.

I do agree though that this year's United is probably the least exciting one we have had for almost as long as I can remember. It has taken some brilliant tactical decisions by Ferguson and some inspired selection decisions to keep United on top. They are hard to beat though; especially at Old Trafford and this and the fact that the Premier League is probably the most evenly contested one right down the places which has meant that some unlikely results have happened to all the top teams.

Tired legs might come into it and ironically Arsenal could benefit by being knocked out of the FA Cup last Saturday by United. Arsenal now can concentrate all their efforts on the League and don't have the extra Cup & European games to play.

Cheers

I saw most of the last Manchester derby too and think that City played reasonably well, although we never got close to scoring - apart from a complete fluke, which you could not have made up. What frightened me was the fact that I felt United won comfortably without even playing well. (In its way Nani's opener was also a brilliant piece of finishing). The game which really showed up the difference though was the second League Cup game last year. United did virtually nothing (deliberately) until the last few minutes of the tie. The footballing lesson they gave us after that will haunt Manccini's dreams for years. All our ball supply to both wings was simply cut off and we were embarrassingly outclassed. It is football, of course, and anything can happen, although another horrible statistic (from our point of view) is that City have not won a cup tie of any sort against Man U since 1970! United will be looking forward to it more than us, for all of the bravado, which will inevitably be on display! United are able to win without playing well, whereas City will have to play above themselves to even compete. Maybe we can get lucky like we did at Stamford Bridge last year, when Chelsea outclassed us yet we still ran off with the points!

Er Arthur... about those transfer plans... I should have a plan B in place!

hi

Arthur

Naturally I don't agree with some of your criticisms of Rooney. I admit that like many before him he is not a perfect role model for the young aspiring professional.

But contra to what is written here he IS a match winner. That is what Fergie saw in him as a youngster and only last Saturday he was very instrumental in disposing of Arsenal from their third competition in less than two weeks.

As for Ashley Young, I am not sure that he is good enough to get in United's side. OK he might be a natural replacement for Giggs but he would struggle to get in against Valencia and Nani. But Fergie is a man that wants a very strong squad and Young could qualify as that.

With regard to the (im)possibility of Rooney going to Villa, let's just say that if he could afford him Houlier would jump at the chance !!!

Villa have some good young players beginning to emerge and I am sure that they will continue to improve after the seismic shock of Martin O'Neil's departure. These things do to time. Let's hope that Villa understand this and don't leap for the dismissal bell like several other Premier League teams have.

GH if given the time, will pull Villa round, and will get rid of the overpaid, I don't want to earn my corn, thick as a brick players that we have at the moment.

The young players are arguably some of the best players coming through at this moment in time.

So, as long as they stay up, then I think there will be a big shake up in the summer, with better results next year.

Did you watch Wayne Rooney last night??? Almost back to his heady best !!!

There are several English clubs that would take Rooney like a shot - if the price is right. Certainly David Moyes at Everton would be one.

Fergie is nearly 70 and will be going soon that is obvious. There are many rumblings in the media about who might replace him. Mourino seems to be the current favourite but I fancy either David Moyes or Martin O'Neil. But I know nothing !!! Just conjecture.

I watched them last night and they were like the curates egg. Great in parts and bad in others. I don't see them beating Barcelona on this form but Fergie has pulled out bigger miracles than this in the past.

The great thing about football - probably the part which makes it the most unpredictable and exciting - is that the better team does not always win. It usually finishes that way, of course, as it ought to. However, we all know that a spectacular clanger, or a moment of brilliance or exceptional luck from one side can result in a draw or even a win for the inferior side. I believe that although this can happen in all sports, it actually does happen more frequently in football.
I recall that last season Man City went to Stamford Bridge and were outclassed (predictably) by Chelsea. However, Chelsea finished the game with nine men and lost 4-2. Chelsea were above on all the games statistics (for instance 17 to six goal attempts) except the one which mattered.
Probably the main reason for bizarre results is that no matter how dominant a team is, they still need a bit of luck to score a goal. Wayne Rooney's goal against City a couple of weeks ago was undoubtedly brilliant, yet the next time he attempts that shot, it will probably land in the stand. That does not make it any less skillful, but you always need luck as well. I do not expect United to beat Barcelona either, but you right Mike, it could happen.

Hi Alan

I agree entirely with you about luck being a necessary factor in making football ( and other sports) more interesting.

Of course sometimes it appears that the top sides get more luck than the others.

In the post war years Arsenal earned the named of " Lucky Arsenal" because the Gods often appeared to shaine on them.

Recently Man United have had their share of good luck- especially with referee decisions. Arthur will well remember the Vidic penalty claim when Man U played Villa last year -or was it the year before.....they go so quickly these days.

I wasn't suggesting luck when thinking about the possibility of United playing Barcelona. I was thinking about Fergie's abilities to be able to plan and get his team to play to match-winning tactics.

Call Fergie what you want ( and many people do ) but his record shows that he is a manager without parallel and has been for many years.

But I suppose we are lucky in having him !!

No doubt about that, but he is also a bad tempered whinger at times! There is not a manager in British football with a record to touch him and I will probably not live to see another one better. He has already far outstripped the achievements of Sir Matt Busby, which is not to denigrate his fellow Scot. I would not be surprised to see him last a few more years. If he is in good health, there is nothing to stop him.

Sir Alex is showing signs of tiredness and is being worn down by Rooney.

Hi Breezy

In today's paper Rooney has given a long interview which states -:

he now has no intention of ever leaving United
He has no problems with Fergie nor vice-versa
He is pleased with the different role Fergie has given him to play - "free"
He is encouraged by the performance of young players coming through the ranks etc etc

Frankly I don't care where Tevez goes but I believe he will be gone in the summer either to Spain or back to Argentina.

Some people saw Fergie as a father figure for Rooney but I guess he messed than one up.

I agree with your comments about Sir Matt Busby and Jimmie Murphy - often forgotten but brilliant scout for United....and a nice man to boot.

While on the United theme may I offer Bryan Robson one of United's best ever players ( and England's) my best wishes as he fights throat cancer. He was always a fighter and I have no doubts that he will fight this horrible disease.

As a person who has experienced throat cancer and made a full recovery I am naturally going to follow this very closely.

My best wishes go out to Bryan and his family and wish Bryan a good recovery.

Yes, definitely wishing Bryan Robson well.
Sadly I think you are also right about Carlos Tevez. He has done a great job for us but the truth is, we are not quite yet up to his very high standards. I do not think he will return to South America, as there is hardly any club there which could afford his very expensive services. Real Madrid or a top Italian club look more likely destinations. After the Robinho fiasco, I think City will be wary of just buying any top striker, whom they can afford (which these days probably means any top striker...) Our vain and ugly behaviour there - as in the bids for Kaka and Torres - made us look pretty grotesque. City will have to change the style of play - probably with two taller, but fast forwards hunting together. That could mean a return for Jo if he is still at Eastlands next year. He is left footed and he can play a bit.

Not sure why you need to specify another tall striker.

I have been watching Man U for many years and other than Van Nisselrooy I can't remember any tall strikers that were prolific.

IMHO the best we ever had was Dennis Law and he was only about 5'8 or so.

Hernandez keeps hitting the net and he is not called "little pea " for nothing.

As for me; Lionel Messi would be OK for United!!

I see with have another two games with Chelsea as a result of today's draw. Doesn't really matter who you get a this stage - you just have to be able to beat who-ever you get at this stage.

I guess you are right on most counts. Michael Owen has scored as many goals with his head as most men twice his size. However, I think that once Tevez is gone, City may well go for two tall strikers, because we have been scoring so few goals in the air up to now. We should also have Adam Johnson and Kolarov fit to give bit of supply next season. Our current method of approach may well have to change. After another disgraceful outburst from Balotelli last night, which effectively sealed our fate, one wonders how long Mancini will persist with him. When Dzeko finds his feet, the left footed Jo may well get an extended run. I think that once he has got his name on the score sheet a couple of times, his confidence will soar and he could well take off.
United certainly have it all to do. My guess is they will be wanting to put the Championship beyond anyone else's reach before fixture congestion can catch up with them. Every game from now on is a big one for them!

We set up footballers to be role models, ambassadors and the rest of it... In some ways, quite rightly too, especially as they are role models for young impressionable lads.

Wayne Rooney may be everything in this thread and more, who knows? Tell you what though, his behaviour in the face of taunting and media pressure, his father's predicament and the pressure to deliver on the pitch? Must have to be Superman to handle that, not just a lad who can kick a ball, (and what a kick...)

Wayne Rooney is paid to entertain. Football fans realise you cannot perform 90 mins of every game, and like a morning fishing without a bite, it's still fishing... You can argue whether he was in the right frame of mind in his personal life to be able to play a vital England game, but once on the pitch, you have to deal with what you have let loose.

If he didn't have the red mist, he wouldn't be as eager to play and perform. Yes, his foul was ugly, brutal and unnecessary, and the rules say you get sent off, so he was sent off. All p[art of the rules. Anybody who objects to football being a physical game though should stick to synchronised swimming. Referees these days have been influenced too much by rich clubs with expensive "livestock" who can't afford to have them injured, leading to an almost non contact sport. And that's just too boring..... The media want to see foul play, the fans want to see foul play, everybody likes to be outraged.

Its the hypocrisy I object to.

IF you did not witness the game live, how do know Rooney wasn't pissed about having uncalled fouls committed on him? Especially if they were behind the play and should have been picked up by the side judges but were not?

Is it thuggery to say "Fuck that! I was wronged and I am gonna make the fucker pay and I don't give a shit what happens to me." in retaliation?

HEY! Before you get on my ass, remember I said I saw nothing and have NO basis for my words BUT... that kinda crap goes on all the time and IF that it was happened, good for Rooney.

I accept that Gnu is making a point that we are all human and my post above is trying to say that too.

But Rooney was right to have been sent off and by the team then dropping to ten men and our most inspirational player not being available for the next game, he has let the team down. As I said, it was a risk playing him and you win some lose some. All this Rooney bashing serves to do nothing but increase the risk of football fans being denied his unquestionable talent. He has the money now to say "Fuck this for a lark." I suppose it is his sense of wanting to play football anyway that prevents that, and the game should be grateful. He is one of the few who will be spoken of to Grandchildren fifty years hence. Oh, and fans of all sides expect a bit of niggle. That's why the game has a referee, two linesmen and an assistant referee. If players didn't wind each other up, we wouldn't need them.

Mind you Gnu, we have enough confusion with linesmen being called assistant referees by telly commentators. Side judges is a new one on me, but not an issue, as I know what you mean. The physically unfit blokes with flags who seemed to be five yards behind play all night and couldn't pick up an offside if it asked them to buy it a drink in a night club.
