Please can you ask him next time you see him.

Haha I meant he really needs to be questioned on his team set up and justify his selection if we get nowt from the game in the post match interview.

That will be far more insightful for me than a poll. Not that I don't enjoy a good poll 🙂

The word genuinely snuck in there makes this a loaded question. But yes, every manager always picks a side to win a game. Their job requires no less.

Do you sometimes do your job deliberately wrong to prove a point or just for a laugh?

Yeah but what's the purpose of an Internet forum if not to provide a platform for idle speculation?

Agreed for what it's worth I don't think Rooney actually knows the capabilities of his players but knew he had to change something after the performance against Forest. So stuck between a rock and a hard place. Think that's something else category.

The substitutions even suggest it's about giving the fringe younger players experience rather than trying to claw anything back.

No doubt in my mind he’s played this one as anything would be a bonus but rest the players that need it. Obviously he won’t come out and say that exactly, but the young lads coming on show he doesn’t even want to risk some.

In fairness, the "first team" did look pretty jaded against Forest.

With 3 away games on the bounce, this being the first (which was always going to be the toughest) I think Wayne used this match to rest players, give the loanies a good run out, experiment with the formation/players. The next game is always going to be more inportant for points to put the club in a safe mid-table position. I will be happy with 3 pts next and a draw at Barnsley. The 4 points out of the 3 away games would be good return.
