Has just come off the pitch injured.
Well that's our world cup hopes gone down the drain!
It looks very very bad.
they will be killed
Perfectly good tackle by Paolo Ferreira.
Looked nothing as he went over. Quite shocking pictures after.
Rooney just shouting in agony. He knew something was wrong right away. He looked in serious pain.
It's got to be muscular or ligament problems because there was no weight on his ankle to cause a break or fracture.
Ferreira = portugese.
England offer Scolari the job.
Ferreira contributes towards Rooney injury.
the curse strikes again. I was looking forward to seeing him play in Germany.
Hope he makes it, but it's not gonna happen
but lets remember. he is an utter pillock and a thug. never liked him, never will, doesn't mean I don't support england.
weve got. this is so fucking bad if he misses the world cup
I've lost my bet. I thought it was going to be Gerrard again, but I suppose Rooney is a more obvious choice for God to shit on
united > england
...they are 'reasonably optimistic at this stage'.
No news of what the injury may be.
a nice birthday too.
fuck fuckety fuck fuck fuck.
This has ruined my day. No, my life.
So up front we have a fence post and a guy who will have played about 1 competitive game in several months.
every game 5-0, the reason we didnt win the world cup is because rooney was injured
I'll still blame Embrace.
for rooneys injury
and have just found out via that link that wigan are in the premiership.
how the fuck did that happen? that's amazing!
He's just twisted his ankle and will be out for a week.
I've been saying to all my mates for weeks that this was going to happen!
So you can blame me if you want,
I personally blame Justin Hawkins for that world cup song.
On BBC just now Mourinho quoted as saying that Man U say "wayne will be ok for world cup"...
Please please please.....Even if he is a granny-shagging thug with the wit of a bedridden Downie, that was our* sole** hope of doing well at the World Cup.
* Apols to non-English
** See what I did there.
we need him if we ant any chance of doing anything this Summer, is he's OK, I reckon we'll at least make the Semis.
AJ for england...nay?
And thrice nay, including yours. He's not even the top English scorer in the Championship!
Owen and Beanstalk up front then. Is there anyone else? Bent I suppose?
Or dare I say it....the Heskey.
It's bad enough that we'll (Sheffield United) will probably end up buying him from Birmingham.
I retire from supporting England, with immediate effect. I would like it to be know that I am aboard the Saudi Arabia bandwagon for Germany 2006.
I thought it was only a fruit cart?
Ashton for England, yes maybe I am slightly desperate. Fuck it get Harewood as well.
to do that touch the TV screen and send positive thoughts to Rooney's foot, like he did with Beckham last time round.
let's play Ameobi up front
is that fucking Bender/joke of an Exeter Chairman.
will be fine...
And now Michael Owen thinks he may have aggrivated his foot (he played half an hour today).
This is some sort of karma, isn't it? The fates can't let England's most talented team in years and years just go to a World Cup full strength, it has to be brought low. I bet there's no metatarsal injuries in Spain.
I've been getting texts about this all day...
a bionic foot
... and they're gonna install a rocket pack under his shirt so he can hover around the pitch - giving a bit of the 'ol nitros in front of goal. the cup is ours fo sho.
all over again. They'll be non stop press coverage of his recovery for the next 6 weeks, talk of oxygen tanks and latest medical trends, and he'll play in the opening game despite not being fully recovered, rendering our most talismanic player of the moment ineffectual.
Damn metatarsals... apparently modern boot design is to blame - not enough protection.
oh well, see you for Euro '08 then :(
can get through our group without Rooney to be honest, then hopefully he'll be an option from the second round onwards.
They should all get some stronger boots, this wouldnt happen if they some good thick leather ones, 60s style
he will go...
but wont play til the quarter finals
...made by a blacksmith?
and Defoe....don't shoot me please.
Boots these days are so flimsy it's ridiculous. The leather is... well, it doesn't feel like leather at all. And the soles are so flexible that they allow the foot to bend way more than boots from about 10 years ago did
Adidas World Cups - now THERE'S a boot
ANDY ANDY ANDY COLE!
providing Man Utd say he'll be okay to play in the quarters. If we make it through without him and then he comes back it will be SO GOOD.
i say we just take SHERINGHAM!!!
Sherringham, Shearer, Fowler and Cole. I actually think we'd do ok with them if we rotated.
