I believe that Rooney will forever be a Man united Man. Following the steps of Giggs, solskjaer, neville, and scholes. He is one of the vital cogs in Man United’s offense.

First off, Irish players are not even considered foreigners in the Premier League.

“”A player is considered foreign if he is not eligible to play for the national teams of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland.””

Secondly, Ireland has a population of around 4.5 million and football competes with Gaelic sports. All in all they are quite successful with what they are working with.

These tournament winning nations win tournaments for their technical ability, the ability to string 10-20 passes together in the opposition half. Their ball retention is phenomenal and our ball retention and technical ability is somewhat poor in comparison.

England won’t be helped much by a Rooney or a Lampard or a Gerrard moving abroad, the technical ability is drilled into youngsters abroad from the moment they can kick a ball. Investment in youth football in this country is the only way we will ever compete in major tournaments.

People say we have a chance of winning in South Africa? Any time we come up against a technically nation we struggle – France, Spain, Holland & Brazil to name a few.

I hope England win the World Cup, but realistically we are a quarter final team at best.

It’s something to write about, this idea of him leaving the comforts of home, but even if some day her leaves Man U I can’t see him ever leaving the British Isles. He is destined to be a Kevin Keegan/Alan Shearer type legend, soccer heroes who never felt the need to go “foreign” to leave a legacy.

By top, I mean the superclubs that are playing in the knockout rounds of the champions league every year.

I’m of the opinion that most players cannot be considered truly great until they go abroad and achieve things on foreign soil. Rooney is still learning his trade as he’s only 24 and has another year or two before he reaches his peak.

He may become a more rounded player even grow up a little.
