Present day Gladiator eclipses the epic ‘Return of the Two Strikers’.

Everton @ OT.

  • A game that was built up to be the epic return of two strikers will fondly be remembered for the stunning strike by the present day gladiator. The score should be flattering for  United as Everton were the better for major chunks of the game.
  • Every single manager who failed to take heed to SAF (2013) when he stated that Rooney should be put on sale has had to face the consequences. I just hope that Koeman does not get himself added to the list after Moyes and Van Gaal. Rooney, to be fair had one of his best matches since joining Everton and it all fell apart for them after Rooney left. In other words, United started playing better once Rooney left. <forgive me for that>
  • Credit to the OT faithful for showing their appreciation towards Rooney both before the kick off and after his substitution and credit for remembering that he is part of the opposition while the game was still on.
  • The player of the season last year finally gets a look in. I want to see more of Herrera as he is one of those original red devils who plays with passion and loves wearing the badge. Hope he gets to the right side of Mou soon and gets back to playing regularly.
