    I'm not arsed about loyalty Pogue, he's a Scouser who grew up supporting Everton and left that club to progress his career. As he should

    It's what already monumentally rich players will do for that bit more money, thats what rankles. This went so far beyond acceptable

    The more so because we thought this was a guy that played for the love of the game

    It was a while back and i really cant recall Rios/Keanes talks too well but i dont think either came out and released a statement that they wanted out, both wanted more money and they are entitled to that during talks. The papers just had a field day because Rio was spotted eatting in a restraunt with Keyon and fans got on his case because after us standing behind him over the 8 month ban we felt he owed us one to stay.

    Seriously? I doubt SAF would be willing to do this, i mean at the end of it its caused obious tension within the squad, has alienated a player from the rest of the fans (possibly even the squad thats just me speculating) and he did all of it to get a few quid to spend in the transfer market? Our policy has always been to develop kids with potential and while SAF is in charge i dont see a change to that.

    Looks pretty simple Rooney screwed Man Utd for money and concocted a story to make him not look like a mercenary. He signs a new contract and Ferguson puts his foot down and says - we call the shots now laddie.

    That is it in a nutshell.

    Can't we close these Rooney threads down now?

    It's as though we haven't discussed anything else in weeks.
