Is it time to try a different boot?

Wayne Rooney broke his foot again, this time in a 0-0 draw that saw Manchester United camped out in the Reading for almost the entire 90 minutes and fail to score. That makes it 3 times he’s suffered broken bones in his foot. Is it time to try a new boot? The Nike’s he’s been wearing don’t seem to offer any protection.

The injury, considered a hairline fracture of his left foot, will see the striker sidelined for up to 8 weeks and will see his contribution for the season last just 45 minutes for a long time. Already 2 points down on Chelsea, and it could be a tough road to repeat this season for United.
The injury was sustained when Reading defender Michael Duberry accidentally stepped on Rooney’s foot after a shot on goal.

Rooney missed much of last year's World Cup with a broken metatarsal in his right foot and his campaign for the Euro 2004 trophy ended after a metatarsal injury to his other foot.
The injury means Rooney will also miss Euro 2008 qualifiers against Israel and both games against Russia.

3 broken feet, hey, let’s watch the Nike commercial again!
