    Thats a wookie not a rookie. Though Chewbacca and Rooney  probably communicate equally as well to football players it appears.

    Not sure what's funny here? If you think the striker with less goals than our striker is worth 9 points difference and there is nothing at all down to the management then you're deeply delusional.

    A 3 man midfield of Bird - Shinnie and Knight; plenty of endeavour but where’s the creativity?
    Why can’t Rooney see it?
    Maybe he can, maybe there’s no better options, who knows?
    Maybe all of the chickens are coming home to roost and there’s nothing Rooney or anyone can do.

    I’ve been a Rooney man, but I’m sick of negative team selections.
    If he is so blind to see that a midfield 3 of Shinnie/Bird and Knight does not work, then he needs to get gone.
    We lost the game today when the team was announced.
    Surely we MUST start the game with at LEAST 4 attacking players. Against Luton we started with 4 attackers and won comfortably. Before anyone points out that Wag/Gregory were out, start with Joswiak today instead of Knight and that’s a better attacking balance.
    Some may also point out that Clarke wasn’t playing and we needed to load midfield, but it’s too negative an argument - We need more attack minded players to keep the ball at their end of the pitch, away from our defence.
    It’s just so boring and predictable that we set up to defend, go a goal down, then have to throw on attacking players to try and rescue a point, I didn’t even bother to watch the 2nd half today and I don’t think I’ve ever purposely done that.
    No, it’s not good enough Wayne. You did a good job taking us out of danger but, given that other results went against us today, you’re anti-football is taking us the wrong way again.
    We’re now back in the running as serious relegation contenders.
    So sort it out fast or get gone and let’s get a manager with a bit of attacking chops, like Chris Wilder, his hell-for-leather approach may have been found out in the Prem, but let’s try and get there first and we’ll worry about that later.

    I have actually defended Rooney and fully appreciate that he has moved us out of the bottom three.
    But I’m coming around to this way of thinking, I fear we’re going backwards again after a promising start.
    ’Rooney Out!’ Was meant to be a bit of a kick up the backside; I respect him as a footballer and if he has deferred wages to help finances, then I respect that also, but the football is not good enough, it just isn’t and there’s no arguments that can convince me otherwise.

    My gripe with Rooney is that we are a defend first ‘don’t lose at any cost team’.
    Some people on here seem to be suggesting that because we created more chances against Reading today, then we’re NOT a defensive team.
    The stats just don’t justify this; we’ve scored one of, if not, the lowest amount of goals since Xmas and have gone on runs of games without even looking likely to score.
    You just cannot argue against this, but some are 🤔
    I also don’t agree with those that say he’s working with little or no quality.
    We have to international players in the team, not the likes that play for San Marino but established European teams like Poland, Ireland and the home nations.
    We have former ‘players of the year’ for other teams and former England youth internationals, I refuse to believe that we have poorer players than Luton, Millwall or Barnsley, that are above us.
    There’s a problem somewhere and I suspect we’re saddled with Rooney. As someone pointed out, we most probably can’t afford to pay him off and I get that, but if he can’t get more out of the players or get the balance right (More attackers PLEASE) then he maybe needs to admit he’s been fast tracked too soon.
    I’m in dreamland, that’s unlikely to happen, but I knew, and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one, the script for today before a ball was kicked with the team and formation he’d picked.

    Hmm, when I learned the game, I’m sure I read somewhere that if you scored more than the opposition then you won the game.
    However, in your amazing understanding of the game, however many shots you have on target seems to count for something. Are you a ‘we had more corners than them’ kind of guy also?
    Is that why you call yourself Unlucky, cos you come out on the wrong side of an argument?

    The problems with Rooney's teams from what i can tell so far is that they are chronically disjointed tactically and positionally. Either we're far too defensive in which case we can go 4-5 games without really creating a chance or we're far too attacking leaving us horribly short at the back. We completely got away with it against Luton who could have scored 3 in the first half alone. This is something he needs to fix next season if he's going to remain our manager as atm he has not found the right balance in the team. I actually do think we have the players for the right balance but he's not utilising them correctly.
