Rooney 200 Club

September 18, 2013 by  

Rooney 200 Club, The Manchester United striker’s brace has taken his club tally to 200 and reminded everyone of his importance to the team. Rooney lies fourth in United’s all-time scoring list. Bobby Charlton, who was looking on, is the leading scorer with 249 with Denis Law on 237 and Jack Rowley 211.

He was superb, so good that allowance could be made for one extraordinary miss with the goal gaping at the Stretford End. Playing in the hole, Rooney showed all his timing and positional sense to score his two goals and then his creative side with a delightful ball to Antonio Valencia. Robin van Persie also scored on a good night for United, enhanced by a strong display from Marouane Fellaini, who slotted in well alongside Michael Carrick.

With six minutes remaining, Rooney was taken off to a standing ovation, having scored twice, reaching that landmark figure and making a goal for the outstanding Valencia. Some things change at United but Rooney’s excellence and importance continues. No wonder United fought hard to keep him.

It was all change from United’s last Champions League game here, that defeat to Real Madrid that brought the red card that saw Nani banned last night. Alex Ferguson was in the smart seats, Mike Phelan was in the radio seats and Moyes, who was working for the BBC that night, was down in the hot-seat.
