Yes I guess so, I'm saying he isn't a 'creative attacking playmaker', I did say I think he would be an excellent deep-lying playmaker. Rooney makes the team tick for sure, but I would rather he was a CF type who dropped deep on occasion and was on the end of a flashy pass from a true 'creative attacking playmaker' who has a bit more to offer than Rooney.
