Wayne Rooney and John Terry are the last of a dying breed. We should cherish them before they are gone for good

JAMIE CARRAGHER: He isn’t ‘back’. That needs to be clear. Wayne Rooney may have enjoyed his best night for some time with a Champions League hat-trick in Bruges — but don’t take that as a sign he is ready to roll back the years. Yet, just as importantly, he isn’t finished. He never was finished.

Club Brugge 0-4 Manchester United: Rooney scores three as United stroll through

Manchester United took an obliging Club Brugge side to pieces on Wednesday night, and advanced to the Champions League group stage with a minimum of fuss. Manchester United secured their place in the Champions League group stage last night with a convincing win that might not have Barcelona quaking in their boots, but will certainly have done plenty for the attacking confidence of the club. Not least captain Wayne Rooney, who ended his much-discussed dry spell with a hat trick. United began the game slowly and survived a couple of early lapses in defensive concentration: Matteo Darmian let...

Wayne Rooney might not be out of form ... he might be done

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney hasn't started the season very well. But he'll be fine, right? Er, perhaps not ... As some of you doubtless know, The Busby Babe is but a small part of the wider SB Nation family. And over on the main SB Nation Soccer site, somebody called "Andi Thomas" — silly name, if you ask me — has a written a piece that might well be relevant to your interests: The evidence Wayne Rooney is physically toast, not just out of form In it, this "Thomas" chancer counts up the number of games that Wayne Rooney has played, compares that number to various other Premier...

Louis van Gaal: Manchester United don't need to buy a new striker

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has denied that his side need to spend in the transfer window to secure the arrival a new striker, despite Wayne Rooney's lack of form. Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal thinks that his squad have enough players capable of playing as a striker, and he will only make a move in the transfer market for a world class forward who can improve the side. Despite Wayne Rooney having endured a dreadful three years at United, and a worse three matches in the league, he continues to be first choice and is one of the main reasons for the sides conspicuous...

Manchester United 0-0 Newcastle United: player ratings

Come on, they weren't that bad. Most of them anyway. Except Wayne Rooney. And Adnan Januzaj. Here's the Manchester United player ratings from Saturday's 0-0 draw with Newcastle. A ‘lacking' performance might be a bit kind. Sergio Romero: 5 Didn't really have any saves to make, but still managed to have heart-in-mouth moment when he unnecessarily closed Ayoze Perez on the left side of his box. Saved by the offside flag. Had no chance with Mitrovic's header that hit the bar. Sometimes looks drunk. Matteo Darmian: 7 Looking like a more astute signing with each appearance. Took an early...

Wayne Rooney goal disallowed in United goalless draw with Newcastle

Wayne Rooney goal disallowed in United goalless draw with Newcastle

Three games into the new season, the most encouraging part for Manchester United is that they still have not conceded a goal even with David de Gea sitting in the stands, wishing for the day when he could wear Real Madrid’s colours. Yet this was a frustrating afternoon for Louis van Gaal’s team and their inability to make the most of their superior possession and territorial advantage will only add to the theory that they lack the firepower to be considered authentic title challengers.An easy line, perhaps, but Van Gaal could certainly have benefited from Pedro’s penetrative qualities...
