Some time ago, I jokingly (very jokingly) commented on here that Wayne Rooney had kicked off a master plan when he moved to Man Utd that went something like this:
Rooney moves to Utd, financially saves Everton by his sale, wins all he wants to, and earns all he needs to. And then, when it comes time to renew his contract, he tells Sir Alex, "Nah, yer alright, I'll just run this one down if yer don't mind"...
...and returns to Everton on a free!
Feeling like all us Blues feel on this very good day... how would THAT scenario make you feel?

Q; If SAF decides to cash him up in January, for what will be a fair wedge, can he say No, I don't wanna go to... wherever and just sit it out?

I've always had a strange feeling he'd be back... probably not thill hes about 32 and crocked, though. But yeah, I'd be delighted to have him back in his prime, anyone who says otherwise is a moron.

1) Rooney has massive money move to Spain circa £60-80 mill, from which we would be entitled to our sell-on clauses (25% of Man U profit).
2) He sees out his contract and joins the Blues on a free and we work out some shirt sales / image rights deal to pay his wages.
I welcome your comments. I will poll your thoughts and then tell him what he should do.
9 Posted 18/10/2010 at 14:24:16
United have apparently paid a total of £27m for him already; if City paid £50m for him we'd make another £5m.
How would we best use it? Donovan?
10 Posted 18/10/2010 at 14:25:45
Rooney COULD do exactly that. The club could agree a fee with whoever they like and he's within his rights to say "No thanks, I'm not going there"...and just see out his contract...I know it's as likely as The Red Shite winning the Premier League but what a laugh it'd be if he did it and approached Moyes and said "Forgive me, I'll play for the same as Mikel and the like coz I'm loaded......
11 Posted 18/10/2010 at 16:24:10
If I'm ever going through shit, I go home to gather my thoughts and get myself together ? just hope Wayne does the same and comes home. All will be forgiven!

If it is possible? Yes, but that depends on how much he wants to go back to Everton, and if he wants.
I mean it is not impossible. He is a Evertonian since he was a kid and his family is evertonian.
If you all think twice.
How good would Everton be today with Rooney in the team?
Well, Everton would be a top club that every team would fear.
Everton have today one of the best midfields in the league and the defence is good. What is lacking is a good striker that is fast and quick(that is not Yakubu).
With Rooney Everton would have a seriously good striker and would probably score another 10-15 goals a year. That would put Everton up on top in the league.
So the idea of Rooney going to Everton is actually pretty good, if you thnk about it. It makes actually sense.
So I am saying. Come back Rooney!
16 Posted 18/10/2010 at 17:15:31
I don't think he eants to go abroad as he will miss Crocky too much. I don't think SAF will entertain selling him to Man Shiteh. He had no choice with Tevez as it was that dodgy agent fella who owned Tevez not Man Ure.
My money is on Wayne joining Everton on Loan for the rest of the season come January then a swap deal with Rodders in the summer. Discuss.
17 Posted 18/10/2010 at 17:21:43
He probably has more dough than BK, plus he can then play for free (And maybe even get some of his new mates to come and play as well).

The he spends 3/4 years in Madrid or Milan, wins a couple of foreign leagues and cups, then Bosmans them for a return top Goodison when he is 29 or 30, minted and we are ready to have a player of that calibre spearhead a genuine title push!?
21 Posted 18/10/2010 at 20:02:18
Whilst the club is "searching 24/7" for a billionaire investor, is there not a bussiness consortium that would be willing to finance the Rooney transfer fee and say wages over a 4- to 5-year contract. In exchange the consortium could have a small equity share of the club and receive their returns in installmetns when Rooney fires the Blues into the Champions League. Just a suggestion!!!!
22 Posted 18/10/2010 at 20:16:29
23 Posted 18/10/2010 at 20:18:41
Thats why we spent fuck-all in summer ? cos were financing the Rooney deal.
Rooney's Coming Home! Ha ha ? we can dream!
24 Posted 18/10/2010 at 20:49:42
NB: I also believe that an Ostrich named Alan assassinated Kennedy.
25 Posted 18/10/2010 at 21:06:59
Wayne Rooney will be sent on loan to Goodison Park for a period of monastic reflection until the end of the season in January. In the summer they will try to sell him for a king's ransom, but they will see Everton as offering a stable resolution to a short term problem for their star asset.
I would welcome him back and can see him leading us to a Chamions League place and good run in the FA Cup. The kid would be "home" and play his heart out for the club.
Would he be welcome by everyone?

He's not a normal, everyday bloke like the media portray him - he's thick as the sky is blue. He'll move abroad or, more likely - given how dumb he is - move to Man City.
Let's put this to bed - we'll never see a "good" Wayne Rooney in a blue shirt again. We may see a "Gazza" Rooney but that's a different story.
32 Posted 19/10/2010 at 06:49:45
If he is as football mad, as I believe he is, would it really be possible he'd be willing to throw two years away on the bench to get a free tranfer for more than likely less mone? Hard to believe but enjoyable non the less. It would definately make up for all his idiotic moments of kissing the wrong badge at Goodison and demanding the move, though he'd probably have to do some serious grovelling to sort things out with Colleen!

Also, interested by peeps using # for "number"; thought that was a distinctly US phenomenon or has it crept back to blighty now? Inquiring minds want to know.

He ripped up his autographed copy of the Daily Post (heralding the new superstar after that goal against Arsenal) and the photo he had taken with the Boy Wonder at Bellefield on the following Monday in a fit of rage when Shrek scarpered up the M62 two years later.
"He's a traitor" was the only explanation we ever got.
38 Posted 19/10/2010 at 20:56:03
Chelsea is in need of forwards. City is not. So he'll get playtime for sure at Chelsea. No guarantee of nothing else than big money at City.
Not to say the hate he'll have to be aware of, being an ManU player going to City.
And he'll get a decent sum of money playing for Chelsea as well.
Perhaps Spain is tempting too.
But I don't see him playing for Everton or City in the near future.
39 Posted 20/10/2010 at 00:38:45
I don't think any player should be attacked if he decides to move away because they gave us so much (both play and transfer money). I mean of course I idolize the likes of Tim, Mikel, Bainsey etc. who are true Evertonians but it's also okay to see some players who don't realize what Everton is. It's just the way they are and that's not why we should attack them!!!
After all I also find much suspicion in what is said by the board of those situations, I believe they rather choose to protect the club than to tell the real truth about the players.
