Hi playing as man utd in my 3rd season near the end. Basically im having problems getting wayne rooney to be consistant. In my 1st season he scored 24 goals in 22 matches (he was injured for 4 months so didn't play more matches). In my 2nd he got 38 in 42 matches but in my 3rd season he has so far only scored 26 in 39 matches. Im playing him as a target man in the attack role I did this fm 2010 aswell and he averaged 39 goals a season for me but now he really is playing pathetically he misses open goals and puts the ball wide constantly. My shooting coaches are not the problem cos iv'e got 3 other strikers hulk (39 goals 41 apps), Hernandez (11 goals 15 apps) and ballotelli (14 goals 19 apps). Just rooney is playing like he isn't quality anymore. He scored a hatrick for me at anfield and I really thought he would take off after that but he slumped again not scoring for another 2 matches. Any recommendations on how I should play him? or should I just sell him for edin dzeko who iv'e just signed aswell cos im getting fed up of over paying ballotelli who im going to sell too.

Bench warmer.
if you have nothing useful to say, then be quiet

complete forward support, and tell him to stop shooting from distance

to be honest 26 goals in 39 matches isn't exactly a disaster. It's still pretty good.
