Listen, I know this may upset some people, but is there any other Evertonian out there who watches Man U just to watch "the lad" do well or hope that he scores a goal?

I?m just as frustrated as you as to how things went,and what he said, what moyes said, We know, (yes we know) when you grow up an Evertonian you ARE an Evertonian. He?s a proffesional footballer, you can?t blame him for doing what he did. Yes,ok,with our present team I also think that he would benefit, but for god?s sake he?s one of us, its only because of certain factions of Evertonians that he?s decided to turn against us. Well sod you all, I hope you become the NEXT England manager Michael Kenrick, see if you have any discriminations then?

Also why would you start a silly thread like this when we have just won 3-0?
At the end of the day this is a site about Everton not about Rooney.

I loved Rooney, and raved about him to anyone who would listen as he came through into our first team and then started playing for England. However, yes you can blame him. I’m sorry but saying that he is a professional footballer does not justify firstly his initial actions of basically forcing his way away and then his subsequent behaviour and comments since playing for them.
He may have been young, taken in by promises of success from their players and agent etc etc, but he is responsible for his actions.
He is a very talented individual, but also basically a cunt. When I see him play or a highlight of a stunning goal he scores it’s a bit like seeing an ex looking looking gorgeous... you wish for a moment that it was one of the good moments with her in the past, but soon remember why you are not still together.
Rooney will never be back. He burnt his bridges - end of.

I was devastated when he left and it was Rooney who got my 4-year-old boy into football and Everton, and had to tell him that Rooney had left. But one thing is for sure, is that the Club is always bigger than anyone, be it a player, manager, chairman or anyone else.
My pride was restored when we got into the Champions League that season after Rooney (and Gravesen) left and the Club lives on. I think that achievement was hugely underestimated and still is. All the pundits had tipped us to go down, and how many clubs outside the ’big 4’ have actually qualified for the CL since it started? We had not only a very small squad but no big names at all. Look at all the other ’nearly’ big teams and how much they have spent to not qualify.
On the other hand, when watching England I hope Rooney does well cos he probably is the best player England have got and our one ray of hope and is pleasing to know that he started at our club and came through our academy.
But pull on the red and I hope he rots....

So I would watch a game he was playing in as a football fan and not a Rooney hater.
Like every Everton fan I do though have more affection for the current squad; "feed the Yak and he will score!!!!"

Rooney has the same importance as Beattie, Simon Davies and Francis Jeffers and any other ex Everton player, I take an intetest but would not waste my time watching them.
Your immature outburst is about a pathetic as it comes, possibly somewhere near Tom McCanns juvenile text speak.

Not that some people are obsessed or anything !
15 Posted 08/12/2007 at 18:48:55
I was merely giving my opinion.
How can you possibly claim that you love Everton more than someone else?
If you’re going to react like that, please don’t pose the question for us to answer in the first place.

I follow and in some cases support some players who leave EFC, some others quite frankly i don’t give a rats left testicle about. It all depends on the circumstances in which players leave. Mr Rooney has proved himself to be a contemptible little spoiled sh!t and the only pride i have is that our youth system managed to produce such a talent.

No grow up or I might be inclined to delete the entire thing! And yes, that’s called censorship. Live with it!

Rooney: I think we all finally lost any hope that he would do well after that badge kissing crap at Goodison last season.
Personally, I have a quiet laugh when I see that he has not improved at all as a player since leaving us. His international record since August 04 is far worse than Peter Crouch’s - more on a par with Emile Heskey. So much for ’having to leave’ Everton as all those so called experts said at the time. He’s won trophies, but that’s down to Man Utd having had a good team in that time and not him in particular.
I ’m very comfortable with the £25m fee and no more lurid tabloid stories. He was trouble with a capital ’T’ and we’re doing fine without him. Give me one Tim Cahill over 2 Wayne Rooneys any day.

He was approached with the plan after he backed fiance Coleen McLoughlin as she started her perfume range earlier this year.
A source close to Roo, 22, said yesterday: "He likes this idea. But it certainly won't be anything too poncy - he would never hear the end of it at United."
What's it going to be called? Eau de CNUT
