Championships aren’t won this early in the season, but there’s nothing about Manchester United under David Moyes that radiates anything remotely close to a title, as the over reliance on Robin van Persie continues to be demonstrated with every time he doesn’t start a match or isn’t completely fit to give his best.

Manchester United – Wayne Rooney Back in a Happy Place

Posted on 18 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

All transfer rumors are gone; all thoughts of leaving disappeared. Wayne Rooney is simply happy to be playing football again; starting, scoring, leading. Manchester United enjoyed his influence as they opened the David Moyes era in the Champions League with a dominant display, that could have gone a bit easier if it wasn’t for some hair-raising misses, mostly coming from Robin van Persie.

Manchester United – Robin van Persie Needs David Moyes to Help Him

Posted on 2 Sep, 2013, by in Soccer

Posted on 27 Aug, 2013, by in Soccer

Getting his first start of the season for Manchester United, Wayne Rooney did show how valuable he is to the team thanks to his ability to play several roles during the 90 minutes (although it wasn’t enough for a satisfying result).
