Rooneygate: A Ready Up? A Fix?



Our club and manager are doing well with a stand-offish/ no comment approach to the rags disarray and this correspondent recommends we follow suit...

Sure, it's an all time classic watching a fanbase built on arrogant smugness cave in on itself with banners already aloft at the swamp labelling their favourite scouser a whore. The smart debt on that evidence would suggest that Wayne Rooney's position with the Norwich scarfed massive is now untenable.

However, we've witnessed and been on the receiving end of Sir Alex Ferguson's mind games before. Could the affable and chirpy 69 year old be attempting to pull off his biggest sting of all?

By that, I suggest getting our Malcom and his lads to commit to throwing money at his squad that they haven't got or sell up and get out as the support angrily implodes.

For me, Rooney and Taggart were always going to be made for each other. A snarling rat boy goaded into action Biffa Bacon style by his roaring grandad.

All the evidence right up until the book of Glazer regime revelations turned another page this week pointed directly to that marriage made in Stretford.

There has been enough historical arslikhan between the two to make this week's events all the more astonishing. If anything, Rooney's statement, written by his agent or dare I say it, Taggart himself, continues the trend with a few choice words of praise.

Could Rooney really be that stupid or is he genuinely fed up with being rushed back repeatedly too early from injury and perceives no ambition?

Taggart for his part has pathetically claimed that there is no player of high enough quality out there worth signing when repeatedly confronted with questions as to why united's previously relentless transfer record breaking escapades have dried up.

You can bet your bottom Miami Dolphins dollar that he'd be flying all over Europe in search of his missing new generation had he the financial clout that City have now and the rags would stop bemoaning liddle ciddy's transfer market domination as being 'all wrong' over night.

Maybe the Glazers will now be panicked into action and find some sort of funding or a gargantuanly rich buyer from somewhere.

Or maybe united's third talisman in a row is set to jump ship and leave the Premier League title campaign goals to Tiny Tim Owen and Dimitar Berbaflop and as the shirt says, it really is All Over Now.

Just don't put anything past Taggart, Blues.

Go on, sign him --- just to amuse the rest of the league. Just loving the pain the glory hunting manure/norwich fans are going through at the moment

They are indeed suffering, but I don't think they'll miss him, and many of the don't care were he's ending up. I actually think a good portion of them is quite happy that a team exists of such stupidity that would pay 30 mill and make him the best paid player in the world. You are waisting your money trying to buy that piece of s**t, and I honestly don't see why you would even consider buying him. And one more thing; how on earth are you planning to get into the CL when the financial fair play rules effects? I just don't get how it is possible judging by your wage bill. Like seriously, it doesn't add up, or am I being an ignorant idiot here?

Its obviously difficult to see the financial turnaround at this point in time xypher, but you need to take into consideration that we will make around 35m+ getting into the champions league (TV revenue, sponsorship and higher PL position). Then we have the extra match day revenue from stadium expansion, revenue from the 1bn development of Eastlands, and also the extra sales from a commercial point of view as our brand grows. The club has other ways to cut costs such as paying off outstanding debts owed to other clubs due to player purchases. It's going to be difficult and no-one can ignore that it is a problem we need to deal with, but thats why we have top executives to figure it out :D

You put to much store in taggart's intellectual abilities mate. If this was a ploy to get the Glazers to pull their finger's out it's backfired miserably, as virtually every rag I've spoken to has come over all green and gold on me. The fans (the real ones, not the plastics) are getting ready to riot over this one, so I don't think spending a few quid on players will haul them out of this. I also note that Scholes has tried to break Rooney's ankle in training, so don't think it's an entirely happy camp over on the dark side at the moment. Nope, the myth of taggart is just that - a myth, and Rooney does want to leave the sinking ship.
