I think Rooney is a great signing. So much youth in our side it's important to have leaders as well. This guy for better or worse has experienced more than any other playing English footballer. He loves Everton you just need to look at his kids room to know that. Business is business and he made the best of his career like we all would. If we can add Giroud then we are in dreamland.

A starting XI of Pickford, Baines, Williams, Keane, Holgate, Schniederlin, Gana, Klassen, Sandro, Giroud and Lookman with a bench including Rooney, Calvert Lewis, Mirallas, Barkley, Jagielka, Barry, Davies. With two massive new players coming in January in Bolasie and Coleman it's hard to see where Barkley fits in especially if Sigurdsson joins as well. The only worrying area is left back.

Really can't see Wayne coming bk to sit on the bench mate he could of stayed at United for the last two years of his contract and earned double what were paying him.

With European games Rooney will start easy 25 games next season. Just if everyone is fit, no rotation and we manage to sign Giroud, history dictates that Koeman loves a number 9 who can hold the ball up and head the ball. Giroud is the best in the league at that in his position. I would not be shocked if we fail with Giroud if Koeman doesn't try and get Pelle to come back to the prem.

Rooney on a free? massive cut in wages? played less games but scored more goals and assists than Barkley. People seem to be assuming he is coming to play up top. He is a utility player that can play 9 on a desperate day or a cold midweek game in Russia. 10 and be more effective than Ross. CM and RW. even at a push RB
I for one hope he shoves some of the negative comments straight back down their throats. He will be a great servant to the club for the rest of his life now. He is a blue nose and he indirectly saved our club 13 years ago. He only scored 17 goals for us. I was gutted he went but it would have been a waste of talent if he had stayed. He wasnt ever going to be able to elevate us at the time. His transfer fee did. fact.
Sure its an opinions page and I love it but sometimes it just feels like people wanna put the boot in to feel better about him leaving. Get over it. He shoved it up our noses with his success yet he was ultimately always vocal about his love of the club. Some people still screw about him kissing the Man utd badge. 17/ 18 year old in the heat of the moment who had had a ridiculous amount of abuse from some EFC supporters.
Welcome back lad and what a lift to the place he will be. I say 50% of his worth is away from match day.

Blue76 I'm with you. He is a great signing for a squad with European football and with injuries, suspensions and the necessity of squad rotation with Europa league he will play a lot of minutes. I just don't think by the end of the window he would make the first XI if everyone is available but that happens maybe 10 games a season and so the other hopefully 50-60 odd we will play as we win the FA Cup the Europa and finish a valiant 3rd that he'll get a lot of game time. Koeman plays historically with a target man and then two 10s off the 9. He doesn't play with wingers, he plays fairly direct football and then bring the midfield in to the attack once it's up there. I'm expecting 5-10 goals from gana Davies, klassen, lookman, mirallas, Rooney, Sandro et al then the number 9 chips in with 20 rather than 30. He was a world class centre back our defence, keeper and defensive mids are top draw. Koeman will aim for very tight, get the ball up top and then let the players play. None of the brown shoes debacle.

I'll have some of that Svenny lad ;)
I am sure if the guy really was precious for game time and to be the number one guy, he would have gone to easy street and had a slice of American pie. He is an ex Man UTD legend-captain-topclub goal scorer - top England scorer. 31.

He (in football terms) is a bright guy, he knows what we have been building, he knows the gulf isn't as big between us and the top 6 as it had been 10 years ago. I believe he is fully aware he will get more games at our place but is by no means a shoe in for 1st name of the team sheet. He will sit on the bench at times and he will be fine with it.

Cant wait for this season to get goin. buzzing Svenny absolutely buzzin!
