I've been thinking about you lately. I don't know what's going on in either the United camp or the Rooney household to form an honest opinion one way or the other...but from what I do know, read and seen on TV, if your ankles bothering you, fine. Stay home. Just stay there this week, fix your marital problems, play with your kid, rest your ankle.
You haven't looked good so far this season. Between the disaster of your own making, the heightened expectations and disappointments surrounding you and now, your ankle...it's been a rough couple of months, hasn't it?
Well, tell ya what (taking Sir Alex's role for a moment). Take the next couple of weeks off. Don't worry about Valencia or Sunderland. I'll talk to Fabio and you don't have to worry about Montenegro, either.
Just stay HOME. Take care of your wife, your kid and your ankle. Come to Carrington for treatment, but fix your life. In a couple of weeks, you can start training again and getting ready for the rest of the season.
Call it a new start on the season.
I'd be happy to lose you for a couple of weeks now, if it meant having a 100% Roo for the rest of the season.
