See the way he was cajoling the whole team today after he came on?
He was very public with his dissatisfaction of his team mates' performances.
He made such a difference with his enthusiasm and his passion and
he showed great leadership qualities. Rooney embodies what United is all about.:)
Gotta love the Roon!!

Question: Can you see Rooney as a future captain?




(can anyone get a gif of the incident? It was on 70 mins I think)

i missed the match today unfortunately i had a match aswell. but Rooney could be a possible captain he seems vocal on the pitch and definitely has the fire and passion that a certain Roy Keane had, i wouldnt be unhappy if one day he was made captain but i think Rio will be around for a while yet after Nev is gone.

Agreed, Im not suggesting he should be made captain in the next few years,
but wondering perhaps further down the line. You sometimes forget how young
Rooney still is as he has been around for ages. Rio should be permanent captain
anyway imo cos Nev and Giggs wont be regular starters.

Yes he was. He nagged fergie to make him captain for some game. It was last season
in a cup game I think, when most of the other 'captains' were being rested.
I reckon he has had the armband 2/3 times but I couldnt tell you exactly.

does Rooney have what it takes to be a captain

a real captain deals with issues like a man not like a teen, i never saw rooney acting like a grown up
remember in 2007 when Ronaldo tackled a very harsh tackle by marrison and Rooney went to punch marrison :rolleyes:

think it was roma away in the group stage was one wasnt it?

i think he will be made captain in the future as most of our captains tend to be british so he has a good chance imo! would love to see it as im a big fan of rooney just wish he would score goals on a consistant basis 1st!he could be the best in th world if he did that

Rooney is a man, a beast of a man. Sure look at Keane and Cantona, who were
inspirational captains yet always got sent off :D
Rooney wouldnt be half the player he is without his aggression and competitiveness.

thats a point i was making when i was giving out about ronaldo kicking out and they were saying what about rooney but the truth is its part of who he is and has always been in his game and as you say he wouldnt be half the player he is without!

we should start a campaign on here to get him as captain ;)

i noticed it at the game, as did a couple of lads behind me. it's great to see that coming on at 2-0 up, still in 1st gear, that he has the professionalism and enthusiasm to drive the team on, knowing that 4 or 5 goals might be there for the taking if we up the tempo a bit. it epitomizes why i love rooney to be honest.

captain?

as has been said, he's had it a couple of times, but only really in games where the others have been rested. i recall coventry?
and yes he is vocal enough to be captain, and he certainly leads by example in terms of ability. rio is certainly ahead of him, and i think that someone like that, who plays in the middle or at the back is the best choice generally.

i know that an inspirational performance can lift a team, but if rooney is to be playing up front for us, you would rather someone like rio in defence, to be watching the game, making sure the defence is holding its line, people doing the right things etc. that's the captain's job. it's the reason why you rarely see a great captain who plays up front.
cantona the exception of course.

finally, if he were to have any chance, he needs to lead by example attitude-wise also. if he's having a swipe at someone, or kicking out when fouled, it's hardly the example that we want the captain to set.


just read above, about the aggression that was such a part of cantona and keane's game. i agree that removing aggression from wayne completely would do more harm than good. but you rarely saw keane do something for the sake of it. he always felt he could justify himself, whether protecting his team, or attending to personal business. rooney isn't doing that yet. if he was, i would be applauding it :)
