It’s been a hell of a weekend for me in Amsterdam (quick little three day holiday), but one thing that I couldn’t get away from was Wayne Rooney’s stunning goal for Manchester United, the winner in the Manchester derby.
Stunning goal. Certainly.
The re-birth of Rooney. Certainly not.
The England international was dreadful in the match against City, and he still looks a shadow of himself. It is undoubtedly a brilliant moment in a poor individual performance but that is all it was.
One swallow doesn’t make a summer.
