    This sunday could dawn the End of Wayne Rooney Era at Old trafford as a united player, And he Leaves (If that happens) as the club's Highest ever goal scorer along with England's Highest ever goal scorer.

    An incredible United Career and where he came as a boy and could potentially leave as a legend although his last years at united were the ones to forget. He could Still Be the captain of the club who could lift the Europa league title In stockholm.

    He has given us some incredible memories as a player and a goal scorer and also had been a great team man and a versatile player who could be relied upon in any position as a striker , second striker, winger , Even midfeilder and DLP sometimes late in LVG era.

    I personally feel he enjoyed his best season as a united player in 09-10 scoring 34 goals and the fan base did go overboard somewhat By naming him " White pele".



    He has been one of United's greatest player and this thread is dedicated as a tribute to his united career as a Appreciation thread for his 13 year old brilliant Man united career.

    I would love it if he announced that he was leaving in the next few days so he could get a proper send off, as well as the fact he is leaving.

    For me, he will always be respected, but not loved. Too many times he held us for ransom.

    Fairly sure he'll play for Carrick's testimonial...

    Would be funny if that was his farewell game too!

    This, good player but never taken to him.

    That said I agree that if he announces it he deserves a "decent" send off. Nothing ott mind.

    This. He should have ditched Paul Stretford and hired another agent, things might have been very different. He could have been a club icon.

    Superb for us. He's obviously been guilty of messing us about a bit with transfers, but his effort and passion on the pitch have been faultless throughout his time here and for the most part he's managed to combine that with world class talent as well.

    He'll go down as a club legend but the contract issues have tarnished his legacy here.

    This.

    Deserves a good send off, though lifting the Europa League trophy and riding off in to the sunset would be the ideal way to finish in my book.

    I kind of just want him to go before I start praising his legacy. He's been a great servant to the club except the last few seasons.

    would prob agree with the above about him being respected but never loved due to all the stunts with contracts and stuff, should really have been moved on 3/4 years ago for me, still hes had some career maybe his willingness to be a team player caused him not to reach the very very elite player level, but still deserves a decent send of for some fantastic memorys.

    The best time for him to leave. He broke the record and has nothing else to prove. With his current performance any more seasons and he'll be embarrassing himself for no reason.

    He'll be a legend for no doubt despite him moaning about leaving and contracts before but it'll be forgotten short time after I believe and everyone will remember him as the club top goal scorer only. Of course continuing any further beyond this season and no one will forget anything and people will only remember his terrible performance last seasons with us.

    Take the right decision, Wayne. You have nothing else to do here.

    Used to be my favourite player but lost all respect and love for him once he leveraged us into increasing his wages. It's a shame he'll likely always be our top scorer as he is unworthy of the accolade, he can feck off into obscurity for all I care.

    This, I will always appreciate the success he contributed to and the performances he provided (For the most part) but I didnt like him when he was at Everton, havent liked him for the time he was here and dont like him now, but seeing as the day Ive been waiting for 10 years for is almost here Ill raise a glass to him and wish him all the best for a future away from United.

    The contract thing doesn't really me bother any more. He just played the game.

    If he hadn't lost all of his sharpness and football ability, seemingly partly down to his own fault, then he would be more of a legend in my eyes as he would still have offered us something til the end. He obviously still is one though, and should be respected as the top goalscorer, having been with us for some of our greatest moments.

    I really can't stand him and will be delighted once he's gone. He was brilliant player until 2012 although he'd already peaked by 2010. He wasn't even a guaranteed starter in the worst title winning team we've had in 2013 so that shows what Fergie thought of him by then. How he's still here 4 year later just shows how we've been mismanaged since, giving him that contract is one of the worst decisions the club has ever made.

    He's an appalling captain, easily the worst we've ever had.

    He's the clubs record scorer and I know he'll be a legend to some but he certainly won't be to me and every other red I know over 30. Rooney's antics with City in 2010 were never going to be forgiven and were always going to tarnish his reputation amongst our support.

    Incredibly harsh. If you score as many goals for the club as he has, you are worthy of being the clubs top scorer.

    Absolute legend, performance dropped off the cliff the past couple of seasons but he's done more than enough in the past to earn the respect of the fans.

    And those saying he held the club to ransom, I would say there's only a select few (probably only Neville & Scholes) who never used their worth to the club to get a better wage and why shouldn't the best performers get paid most, I'm sure we expect the same in our own jobs. The difference was how badly Stretford handled it and it going public.

    I applaud him for his achievements here, but for me he'll never be a true United legend, not after his dubious antics towards our club. Fingers crossed he goes quietly early in the summer and enjoys the rest of his career wherever he ends up.

    Agreed. He also worked very hard for the team, tracking back, defending and even clearing balls off the line. the hate he gets here is pathetic

    How much was he being paid at the time? 50k, 100, 150? Even 50k a week should be enough and leveraging the club for more is ridiculous and greedy.

    It doesn't matter, if you love the club like he claimed then you wouldn't care about the going rate. He's a traitor and always will be.

    Its not the angling for a pay rise, no one has hard feelings to Keano or Rio for the same thing, its claiming his teammates are shit and MANCHESTER feckING UNITED, one of the worlds elite clubs aren't ambitious enough for a dim witted scouser who would be necking stella in a toxteth slum if it wasnt for having well coordinated feet. All he had to do was say pay me what I think Im worth or Ill leave, no one could argue with that, but he choose to listen to that scumbag assclown of an agent and disrespect the club, his teammates and the greatest manager of a generation in pursuit of more cash.

    I'll miss him. I think he was the last player I idolised as a kid/teenager, smashing shots and shouting "Rooonaay!" before I got all cynical and shit.

    Let himself and the fans down a few times but has done more than enough to be considered a legend and one of United's all time greats.

    Yep, he's been paid 100k per week too much (at least) for 7 years. Wayne Rooney has done us no favours.

    Why will anyone remember contracts issues for the top goal scorer of the team, some years after leaves ?
