Eriksson lets Rooney be loony

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney displayed behavior the other night that was worse than the behavior he displayed a few months ago when embarrassingly substituted before the half in a friendly against Spain.

I’m starting to sour on the dour coach Eriksson. He’s unable to control Rooney; he acts up when he plays for England a lot more than with United. With stern Alex Ferguson at the helm, he’s obviously got much less space to act out. With England he doesn’t respect Eriksson. Beckham had no impact either, what he said was going in thru one ear and out the other.

If Wayne Rooney’s problem is that he’s not getting the ball with England, well then, be a cry baby and be selfish and get carded and miss a match. Maybe Rooney wanted the card cuz he wasn’t getting the ball and said screw it, I won’t play. Whatever was going on it didn’t really have anything to do with the ball.

England looked awful the other night. It was truly an embarrassing display of ineptitude; the problem in part was the Eriksson’s decisions. If he deserved substitution against Spain, he deserved it against Northern Ireland. I would have substituted Wayne Rooney then and there, qualifier or not, and I’d be willing to bet England would have won that match if Eriksson did.

If you took Rooney's temper out of his game he wouldn't be the same

yeah his energy is one of the best parts of his game and to say england would have won if he wasnt on the pitch is rubbish. rooney can change a whole game by himself and sven knew that, that is why he didnt take him out. somethign has to change in the england set up if they hope to beat poland in october.

I disagree.

A player who can change a game cant change a game when they play selfish.

Wayne Rooney is a selfish thug who should be made to do a job where his pay reflects his intelligence for example a lab rat or a lamp post
