I agree with that, except I would prefer it if somehow we kept Rooney and Tevez upfront together because I just love the partnership and I know that it could turn out to be incredible. The middlesborough goal would be the norm for the these two if they get a chance to grow as a partnership. There 1-2 link up play has been brilliant this season, so imagine a fitter Rooney, a fitter Tevez, and the benefit of having a pre - season together, they really could be a dream pairing.Fergaiste said:think personally Rooney from next season on should be deployed as a central striker preferably in the hole.He needs to be involved in the action to get gthe best out of him as an individual even if the self sacrifice h makes in tracking back is just as vital for the team. I think if fergie buys a striker who can actually stay fit unlike saha we will see more of the 442 set up that suits rooney's attacking game. We saw tonight how effective he was in linking up with gerard in particular in that position. I still think he has had a very good season and as our talisman we cannot do without him. So in Europe i still believe that despite winning the champions league we can adapt to a more attacking format a la how we play in the Premiership then we will see Rooney at his imperious best alongside another striker.Tevez would be ideal but no harm having a bit of competition which we didnt have in the striking for virtually the whole season. Still whatever system we play Rooney's enthusiasm for the game remains undiminshed which is admirable and his unselfish play for the greater cause deserves as much recognition as anybody over the course of the season just gone
They could be better tha nthe Cole-Yorke partnership given time I feel because they are vastly superior individually, but if they can fulfil there potential as a duo then we could see something special.
As a few people have said in another thread, neither Rooney or Tevez were fully fit this season, and when they were they only had a few matches of just the both of them back to back. They could be immense and i would like it if they stay as the front two, but interchange more so Rooney is in the hole just as much as Tevez.
I wouldn't be suprised if Fergie brought a 'low key' striker, just to complement Rooney and Tevez, instead of buying a player who would expect to start every match.
It's gonna be a very interesting season next year i feel.
