Rooney Out For Up to 4 months


Rooney will be a big miss for Man Utd and England​


Manchester United star striker Wayne Rooney will be out for up to a maximum of 4 months after suffering a fractured arm in the Champions League against Bayern Munich last night.



The 25-year-old had to be stretched off the pitch in the closing minutes of the away game in Munich with the final score ending 1-1. Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed after the game " that Wayne would be a huge miss not just to Man Utd but to England as well, our physios say he will be out for a maximum of 4 months and everyone at the club wishes him a speedy recovery".​

Ah thats a really unlucky injury. I know it's early days but how about you call up Connor Wickham of Ipswish? He's got great potential.

England 5





England were an un-stoppable force right from the first minute tonight, despite a slightly weaker than usual centre back pairing of Birminghams Roger Johnson who made his debut tonight and Boltons Gary Cahill who was making his first start for England after making his debut in last months 5-0 rout of Hungary. Things started very brightly for England with Tom Huddlestone hitting the post with a real powerhouse of a strike, but before you knew it England were 2-0 up through Villa team mates Gabby Agbonlahor pouncing onto the rebound from a shot by captain Gareth Barry but the keeper fumbled it but Agbonalhor hit the post from a header but he had no trouble 2nd time around with a simple tap in. the 2nd goal came from Ashley Young who finished off a good team move with a sidefoot finish in the bottom right hand corner.​



It remained 2-0 for 20 minutes as Bulgaria were starting to grab a thickhold in the game but a counterattack started by wing-back Leighton Baines with a marvellous through ball to Gerrard and he was brought down so Wayne Rooney stepped up to comfortably slot home the penalty sending the keeper the wrong way. Rooney also scored another straight from the kickoff after half time and the last goal came from Bolton centre half Gary Cahill scoring his first goal for England on which was his first England start he headed home from an Ashley Young corner.​









Overall, a very confident performance from England, with some fringe players really taking their oppourtinty well when brought on such as Gabby Agbonlahor scoring his first England goal, Roger Johnson a godd all round performance on his debut and Gary Cahill he has certinaly put down a marker and if he carries on could well become one of the 1st names on the team sheet. Ian Holloways Englands side have scored 10 in 2 games conceding 1 goal in the process things are looking up again for English football and perhaps playing the best football they ever have well since 1966 at least.​







Holloway clearly delighted with the performance
Abonghalor wasn't in your starting line up and yet scores the opening goal after 17 minutes. With no injuries which would explain an early substitution it seems a bit strange...



Anyway keep it up because you are getting some nice results.

England V France preview



England manager Ian Holloway says he does not care what criticism he might face for fielding an under-strength England side to face France this evening.




"France are a terrific side, but as a friendly i'm going to give the regulars a rest and field some of the younger and fringe players the chance to stake a claim to become an England regular."​







Holloway went on to say that "David Beckham will captain the side tonight, he is a terrific player and he really deserves to break the all time caps record because England have not had a better player and over the years if you look back really he deserves it."​







With France fielding a full strength side, many England fans are pesistmic about tonights game but fans will be overjoyed if England could get a result.​

England 2
France 4



As Ian Holloway lost his first game as England boss, there was no hiding the fact that England were totally outplayed in every area of the pitch.



Ian Holloway gave some fringe and youth players the chance to shine in this friendly with the likes of David Beckham, Frank Lampard, Phil Neville, Darren Bent, Danny Murphy, Steve Harper, Joe Mattock, Jordan Spence and Alex Smithies all playing some part in the friendly. But the friendly provided few postives as France fielded a full strength side as their quality and England's lack of composure played a vital part in the win.​



Franck Ribery emphasised the vistors' superoity with an early goal after 6 minutes as Englands youthful defence was left shocked by France's superb start. Karim Benezma added a 2nd just as England were starting to get back into the game with a superb solo breakaway. 5 minutes later Frank Lampard playing in a more attacking role than what he plays for Chelsea got England back into the game as he latched onto a back pass. France hit England on yet another break from Gignac and France went into the break 3-1 up.​








Lampard overjoyed to be back in the England team as his celebration shows







After the break england contuined to pile on the pressure and finally broke France down with Jack Wilshere scoring his 1st England goal from a cross by Manchester City wideman Shaun Wright Phillips. It stayed 3-2 right until the 87th minute as Benezma grabbed his 2nd goal of the game.​
