Rooney hip injury nonsense

I don't get it? Can someone explain it to me? If the idea of playing the team we did against Chelsea was to rest players for Barca then why are we now left with a potentially injured rooney? He took a knock against Blackburn and it's obviously been aggravated against chelsea. He should have been the first player on the list for a "rest" if he was carrying a slight knock. Am I missing a trick? Would it not have been better to put out a virtual second team and tell them to go out and attack chelsea and see what happens?
Fergie to me is showing signs of neither doing one thing or another. He says we must impose our game on barca at the Camp but then we go into our shell. He says we need to rest players but then rooney plays (who was surely the one player who had a definite knock) Isn't this the managerial equivalent of a "cross- come -shot" that is neither a cross nor a shot and ends up just being a waste of an opportunity? It has that feel about it for me. I think he's caught between two goals (CL + PREM) and wants to attack but can't bring himself to do it. He wants to rest players but then doesn't rest the right ones. There's an old buddhist phrase - "Man who chases two rabbits catches neither"

he is injured non dangerous injury
Rooney a doubt
Sir Alex Ferguson's weekend went from bad to worse when he learned Wayne Rooney is a major doubt for tomorrow night's Champions League clash with Barcelona and the game has been entrusted to one of his least favourite referees. Rooney has been receiving intensive treatment since Manchester United's loss to Chelsea after aggravating the hip injury he originally suffered at Blackburn the previous weekend. And German official Herbert Fandel, who sent off Roy Keane for an alleged stamp on Porto keeper Vitor Baia four years ago and dismissed Paul Scholes against Roma last season, will take charge at Old Trafford. When told earlier this season that Fandel was to referee a United group game, Ferguson asked: "Have we got a supply of Mogadon?" Barca lost 2-0 on Saturday night to Deportivo La Coruna.

"Our Rooney who art in the sick bay
Chanted be your name
Thy stadium awaits
Thy will come
Old Trafford as it was at Nou Camp.
Give us today our weekly goals
And forgive those that don't score.
As we forgive those that don't sing !
Lead us not into semi final oblivion
But deliver us to the final !
For thine is Moscow stadium
The power, The Glory
For ever and ever
