Wayne Rooney declares his intention to walk out on Manchester United

Recommended Posts

Can imagine this changes nowt in many ways though. Rooney will know if he still wants away he can go because someone will pay for him; just means Man U can get more money for him when he does. Wouldnt be surprised if it was basically discussed in those terms either.

But after he made a brief appearance against West Brom on Saturday, a training ground tackle from Paul Scholes has put him on the sidelines.

 

Scholes, the master tackler, strikes again.

People can bang on about the transfer system being a false economy, and how it should be bought into line to follow the EU-Line [accepted employment law affecting freedom of movement], but it's exclusive. The transfer market [and the trading of employees, whose respective talents have been nurtured by their clubs] is hard currency for all clubs, and the lifeline for feeder clubs. As Holloway infers, the old system was 99.99% fair.

 

The case of Marc Bosman [his club behaving like pricks and not paying him, while still being the custodians of his registration papers] was an isolated one, and it certainly didn't warrant the transfer system [where player/agent power has become a disproportionate entity by itself] being turned on its head. The greatest irony being that the football landscape was forever & significantly changed by a player of limited ability.

200k a week when 500,000 are facing unemployment. Fucking sickening.

 

;)

 

Laughs aside he's bang on imo. The money earned in top level football is obscene given what they actually do (off and on the pitch).

Nobody's forcing anyone to pay Rooney that much, nor would not paying him that much suddenly end unemployment.

 

 

He's worked his arse off to be good enough, he's earned the right to be paid whatever he can get.

 

 

 

 

However, I don't disagree that the imbalance in society needs to be addressed. The minimum wage has to be WAY higher than what you'd get on benefits and those benefits should have to be earned by doing things for the community.

Come on man, what was he on, 120k a week or something? A hissy fit later and he's meant to be on 230k. He didn't earn that, him and his agent made a power play and the club caved. There'll be plenty others following his example too.

 

I hope he breaks his fucking leg tbh.

I think it's horrible and I think I saw on the Daily Mail front page yesterday 'A Victory for Greed'. Not usual for me to be in full agreement with them but that sums it up perfectly.
