Not your typical thread about the two. I'm sure this has been done to death but suck it. I've been watching the BBC's most shocking World Cup moments and came across Rooney's red card and the 'wink'. I know this forum will unfortunately be anti Rooney until the day he retires and we appreciate him for the legend he is. I want to point out two articles about what Rooney said to Ronaldo after the game and then to Fergie. It has to be appreciated, I feel, that a guy who would be slated as letting his country down in the over bearing style only the English media can produce reacted in such an honourable way and went on to win countless trophies with his team mate. Before any of you 'Rooney haters' jump in, I do not defend his actions,he deserved to be sent off but it takes a strong character and someone who cared fully about United to not kick up a fuss at all. http://www.givemesport.com/1212966-...-cristiano-ronaldo-incident-at-2006-world-cup https://www.dreamteamfc.com/c/news-gossip/377704/rooney-ronaldo/ A taster of what it meant to the team to have them as a duo , let alone the performances they individually put in outside of that. I'm undoubtedly a Rooney fan and have defended him up until he left (being Irish I'm used to dealing with failures and bad performances) but surely Wayne should be commended for his maturity in this situation and both should be adored for the years and successes that followed this incident. What say you?
