The English media are notorious for being completely mental when it comes to World Cup football. Rooney's just come off an excellent season with United where he was in outstanding form and he's now dropped into a weird World Cup and hasn't quite found his feet yet. Liverpool / Man Utd rivalry aside, I'd say he's one of the best, if not the
best player in the Premier League for the last season, and he has matured a hell of a lot over the last six years, both with his attitude and his game.
