Wayne Rooney is so overrated it makes me mad?

Wayne Rooney is so overrated it makes me mad? Topic: Elements of essay and its meaning

Question: I don't know about everybody else but Wayne Rooney as far as Im concerned has been living off a reputation for too long. The guy hasn't delivered for years now yet people keep on banging on about him. No matter how average his season he always gets a mention in the top players of the year. On one football website they had him in the premier league team of the year. I mean he's just above average as far as Im concerned. 14 goals in 43 england games is a poor return for any international striker. Even at manchester united his strike rate is poor considering they consistently score more goals than any other team. I mean he's never short of supply to get goals. Ok my rant is over, but what do you guys think. To be honest If I were a Man utd fan I'd prefer a torres/Villa/Luis Fabiano etc. James T your points are valid but everybody has said Henry had a **** season, not too many have said that about Rooney's season and Henry still managed to bag 19 goals. If Christiano Ronaldo can score over 30 from his position then you could expect wayne rooney to get something similar if he was good enough. Put simply the guy is out of his depth at Man Utd. They could afford better and quite frankly I don't know why they haven't!! Good point Pacion but then again Berbatov has as many assists but he scored more goals, Anelka likewise. Nicky Shorey from Reading had one assist less that Rooney this season-is he world class? Reading couldn't score to save their lives this season. Rooney only had to play simple passes to Ronaldo, Tevez, Nani for these guys to score goals. Its alot easier look good when your surrounded by world class! players to Maybe Im just holding a grudge because as an Irishman I hold Robbie Keane in high regard and despite the fact that he has outscored Rooney three seasons in a row he never gets a mention when it comes to premier league 11 and world class players. I mean he wasn't nominated in the fifa 50 players and Rooney was despite quite an indifferent season. Keane also creates plenty of assists and makes excellent runs to creat space etc. This is probably why I feel he is over-rated!

I could not disagree more... the player is world class. How can you just state the goal tally and claim this, this year he had a completely different role with the likes of Tevez and Ronaldo working off him... which also explains why he had the third highest amount of assists in the Premiership despite the lack of appearances. Similarly to you I have used fact to prove my point but take a closer look and see the importance he had on both Man U winning the Premiership and Champions League. People like Torres and Villa can offer goals but this isn't the only role players of Rooney's caliber brings to a team. which in a way shows why Liverpool finished fourth despite the goal power Torres brought. Believe me I see where you would make this point, but I'm not going into an essay to show you the difference in quality between Rooney and the likes of Shorey. So instead I suggest looking back on games and watching the evidence and I assure you will feel silly for saying Rooney's overrated. Eventually you will see elements of his vision, work rate and understanding of the game when applied with technical attributes... he is a football genius. Yes he has world class players around him but then you have to look back on his Everton days at just the age of 16 when he had a last minute moment of brilliance by stopping an unbeaten Arsenal team . i couldn't agree more about Keane which is why he played for Inter and Leeds when they were a top four team, the problem is how can you place a player in a top 11 team when his own team is failing to its capabilities.

Stacy Originally Answered: Is Pongsaklek Wonjongkam, overrated?
I honestly don't know why so many people have been talking about him as of recent, IMO he's looked on the slide for quite a while now. All of those fights that he's had have taken their toll on him and he's hasn't looked good since before he dropped the decision to Naito a couple of years ago, around the seventy fight mark is when Thai fighters seem to go bad, look at Ratanachai Sor Vorapin, a very good fighter for many years and then when he gets up into those high numbers he is just not near the same (though he was never really on Wonjongkam's level as far as talent goes). 1- My question is how great is Naito really, he is/was an exciting fighter but before he fought Pongsaklek he was more of an up and comer type as opposed to a world class contender and after he fought him he was looked upon as an easy mark just because how he was handled by Wonjongkam the first two times. there is Hussien Hussien on his record which was a pretty good win at the time but he should of fought Jorge Arce which many people seem to forget that Wonjongkam was ducking Arce for a long time. 2- I've never seen those fights so I can't really comment, the guy could just have his number. It doesn't take a world class operator to have the right combination of boxing abilities to beat a world class guy, it's just the truth. Another reason is that he could of come in underprepared and/or overworked from the busy schedule that many Thai boxers keep. 3- It's not really just him though, Thai boxing promotions have a long history of importing guys from the Phillipines and Mexico to basically be used as cannon fodder for their house boxers. I remember there was a controversy about a Mexican boxer who had been fighting in Thailand who died of brain injuries from the beatings he recieved in the ring (he also fought Wonjongkam five weeks before his death if my memory serves me correctly). It's actually a very bad thing going on over there which we don't really hear much about here in the U.S. (assuming that you live in the U.S.) These guys go over there and basically get beat on until they are used up in the ring or in the more tragic cases die. I just looked up the boxrec page of the fighter who died, and my memory was off, he was from the Phillipines and his name was Lito Sisnorio. I read an article from a Filipino Newspaper shortly after hearing of his death that had his Girlfriend and Mother talking out against what was happening in Thailand. If I can find it I will post it on here, here's a ling to his boxrec page: http://boxrec.com/list_bouts.php?human_id=287381&cat=boxer Look at the fighters he was thrown in with when he got to Thailand to see what is wrong.

I think he offers the team a lot, and is a key elemnt in why we won the league. He has a perfect understanding with players such as Ronaldo, Tevez and Giggs, though i can see why you may think he is overrated Its hard when Ronaldo is always taking the praise He scores many goals though not consistently, but he will learn, he's fair young. He probably just feels annoyed at the lack of attenmtion he is getting and got into a rut... I do miss his long shot goals though... far too much chipping attempts these days

im an arsenal fan but i dont think rooney is over rated. far from it actually. he got 12 goals and 10 assists this season which isnt bad. he is an incredible talent so dont ever say he is over rated. plus u shouldnt base everything on how many goals he doesnt score for england etc. there is much much more to come from him dont u worry. arsenal are still gona win the league next year though!!

Some players are playmakers and others are scorers. Even though he doesnt get the primary assists even, rooney is a very instrumental part of opening up many plays. And i HATE manchester united, so this is out of pure respect.

He is not the same player he use to be and you have a point when you say his goalscoring record is not great but his workrate and his overall game has improved over the past couple of years. I agree that he is greatly over rated by a lot of people

Your clear dislike of him, just as clearly clouds your judgment. If you just judge a player on goalscoring stats, then take into that the fact that he missed 16 or so matches. His stats would have been far better if not for injury and the fact that many players had their games altered to suit Ronaldo.

Wow! ur clearly not a man u fan... Wayne Rooney has been playing outa position every since Saha got injured last season.... Since then he has been standing up front, unable to win headers and can't play OFF any1... The only reason he continued to do this, this season is coz he is better than Tevez so finds it easier to adapt (which allows Tevez to play in Rooneys natural position) Fact!!! ...Do you think there is a reason why arguably the best player in the world (for a few years) Thierry Henry has had a **** season at Barca>.???.. Coz hes bin playin out wide..not in his position.. o ye thats anutha thing rooneys bin doin...fergie plays him on the wing (coz he CAN defend) and he never complains.. 99% Man U fan will agree with this...and Rooneys a loyal legend already....(unlike ronaldo) Also, you say he is **** now, but for someone who offers much more than scoring (i.e he is not a natural finisher>>>) hes scored more than 1 in 3 this season...!! ROONEY!!ROONEY!!!ROONEY!!! ALSO IN RESPONSE TO THE GIRL ABOVE BOUT ANUTHA STRIKER... I swear on my mothers life that fans don't want anutha striker incase Wayne isn't firing...(waye will be in first 11 till hes 300 if anything its so that a NATURAL FRONTMAN.... i.e huntelar/berbatov/ashton or that idiot saha.... can allow wayne to drop back in the hole and become world class again... Also CAN ANYONE NAME A PERIOD OF TIME WHEN HES PLAYED IN "HIS POSITION" (hole/droped off) WHERE HE HAS NOT BEEN WORLD CLASS dont think so.... case closed....if you need a second opinion go to you tube and type in PELE....or CANTONA (with rooneys name) just to hear those legends speak of waynes talents/.... FINALLY...villa or torres etc...YES EXACTLY Rooney playing off/behind TORRES would be the best strike force in world football....>>>> >>>>the key would be how they would compliment each other and be EFFECTIVE ... >>rooney+upfront in 4-5-1 is one of the biggest wastes of talent i have ever seen..... (even tho i love him,,, you have to blame tevez)

long story short Rooney was hyped when he was younger but really never lived up to expectations he will be sold from United in time to come i think he never hit 30 plus goals he seems injury prone he doesn't have a level head he is so overrated i think but people are beginning to see he isn't all he is cracked up to be i think

Yiesha Originally Answered: Is the Madeline Mccan case overrated?
By any chance does anyone know the names of those 2 little black girls that went missing in Chicago in 2001? Their names are Tionda & Diamond Bradley. "...Chicago, the mystery that haunts the city. One of the biggest manhunts in the city`s history fails to locate two little missing sisters, just 3 and 10 years old. " http://www.amw.com/missing_children/brie... http://www.amw.com/missing_children/brie... We heard very little about these little black girls, because the media was so consumed with Chandra Levy/Gary Condit mania. And the ONLY event that seemed big enough to knock Ms. Levy off the map - was something called September 11th. Every missing person case is tragic. Yet, the media doesn't seem too terribly concerned. It breaks my heart to think my little black child isn't worth the same media coverage as a white child. Here's another missing person story regarding an African-American male named: Julian Carlos McCormick. http://news.aol.com/story/ar/_a/family-r... "Police conducted one aerial search for McCormick for an hour and a half well after dark Friday night. Authorities categorized him as a "noncritical missing person" because there were no signs of foul play. McCormick's mother, Peggy, says the search for her son wasn't a priority for police." So to answer your question, no the coverage of a child's disapperance can never be overrated. But there is a HUGE DISCREPENCY IN THE MEDIA COVERAGE!!!
