Marking ten years since Wayne Rooney's Manchester United debut

It's been a decade since Old Trafford witnessed one of the all-time great first appearances ... "We firmly believe that in Wayne we've got one of the brightest young talents in England for many, many years ..." Ten years and counting, as it happens. Those words came from the mouth of David Gill, as Wayne Rooney was unveiled to the world as a Manchester United player. Signed at the end of August 2004, he didn't make his debut until 28 September against Fenerbahce, his first taste of European football. And as you may recall, it went quite well ... Since then, Rooney's won five league titles,...

Rooney accepts he deserved to be sent off

Rooney accepts he deserved to be sent off

Not even United's captain can argue that he should have stayed on the pitch. Wayne Rooney has accepted that the referee made the right decision to send him off an hour into Saturday's game against West Ham United. Manchester United's captain was shown a red card after he attempted to trip Stewart Downing but ended up -- and there is no gentle way of putting this so we're going to be blunt -- punting him in the balls: It was probably the right decision. I saw the West Ham player making a counter-attack and I tried to break up the play, but I just misjudged it. I didn't absolutely volley the...

Manchester United scrape West Ham win after Rooney red

Manchester United were 2-0 up and cruising against West Ham, but Wayne Rooney was then sent off for a daft foul, and a nervy finale followed. That wasn't very good for the nerves, but it is for our position in the table. Manchester United are above Liverpool! The glory days are back, friends. Paddy McNair was selected to play alongside Marcos Rojo in defence, and surprisingly, we probably put in our least inept defensive performance of the season in a nervy game that became weirdly foul-tempered late on. Wayne Rooney got the ball rolling after good work from Rafael led to him clipping an...
