Once Wayne Rooney was destined for greatness at Old Trafford. Unthinkably, life as a Red Devil now seems up for the forward.
He has lost faith. The spark seems lost.

I will be very surprised if Wayne Rooney doesn’t start Manchester United’s FA Cup quarter-final clash with Chelsea tonight.
IT WAS a rumour that made the rounds a couple of days before kick-off and, in the end, it turned out to be true.
Our writer, Neil Humphreys, picks out the great and the good, the terrible and the tragic and the occasionally grotesque from the weekend’s EPL action.
All the talk ahead of tonight’s English Premier League clash between Manchester United and Wigan has been on the fitness of Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa.
Of all the speculation in the build-up to the end of the transfer window, none is more intriguing than that which surrounds Wayne Rooney.

This might be the first time that Wayne Rooney has got injured and Sir Alex Ferguson isn’t fretting.
