    Getting rid of Rooney was the start of all of this

    Might well be covered in other threads. I donít have time to read them all. Certainly on my Facebook. So apologies for any repetition. But just wanted to make the very valid point that binning off the big eared chav is the best thing I can remember happening to an England team.

      Getting rid of Allardyce was an amazing bit of luck.

      For the first time, I want to thank a tabloid, for the entrapment.

      Getting rid of Sam was the best move, Rooney was shit only achievement he scored the most ever goals for England at present but whatever eh ?

      Not Rooney’s fault whatsoever, but when he played and after our other CL quality players retired, the lesser players left felt obliged (in their own heads, not from coaching), to always pass to Rooney. It was very predictable for the opposition. He wasn’t holding us back as such.

      Regardless of his goal scoring record, Rooney's era was one of sneering, snarling, swearing and an under-achieving squad with a misplaced sense of entitlement that made them very difficult to get behind.

      I prefer things how they are now.

      Probably the best thing that happened to England was the combination of Robson's dislocated shoulder and Wilkins (RIP) lobbing the ball at the ref.

      Never understand why there are a few who get so vitriolic about Rooney. He was part of a squad that failed. No mean feat to score the number of goals he did and will be interested to see if Kane gets close (I suspect he will). He wasn't binned by Southgate, he chose to retire from international football. Suspect a lot of it is down to simple envy (not necessarily with regard to the granny bit though)!

      Alan Shearer retired when he was 30 and Rooney when he was 31. Scholes also retired when he was only 30.

      Allardyce shooting himself in the foot was the most important factor. Then dropping Joe Hart.

      It wasn't a tabloid.

      Rather than try to find the cause look at the positive.

      We have a team now with no fear, may be not world class possibly one or two might be but together and that is all down to the manager.

      If you look back in time many England teams were caught up in factions usually via cliques formed from different club player factions - Chelsea v Man U etc.

      What we have now is a team of players who want to do well together and also want to achieve together - remember #together once before with BHAFC.

      I was born before 1966 but had no clue what happened as 2 at the time, in my life time Italia '90 was our best shot but we did not make it.

      I am totally relaxed with this England team, if we do it we do it, if we don't so be it but the most important thing is we have a great set up and with this and it will happen given what the England Youth has already generated, maybe sooner than we all believed.
