Manchester United Message Board
If he's ever going to prove his worth here, its time to step up now. With Rooney out for a minimum of 2-4 weeks, we are going to be relying on him to score the goals to keep us ahead in the league and keep us in Europe. There has been no doubt that he has been a disappointment in terms of goal scoring since his arrival here. Its time for him to change that.
Also, can Kiko Macheda shine in April again?
Its going to be tough without Rooney, and we'll see what this team is really made of this next 2 games.
Come on United!
Squeaky bum time gents!
You said it man. April was always going to be the toughest month of the whole season for us. But without our talisman, the next 4 fixtures are going to be doubly difficult.
Berba is a quality player, but the pressure on the boy is gonna be HUGE! No doubt the media will have a field day with this situation. I just hope he's up to the task. Next two matches are make-or-break for our season.

Totally raj, no doubt we'll be written off against Chelsea and Bayern before those games have kicked off now. You can never write this team off, even at their lowest, and its something United have always thrived upon. The weight on Berba's shoulders is huge now, with him being the only established striker fit. Its a massive opportunity for him to eventually shine, and also for the younger forwards in Kiko and Diouf to show their potential.
The next month looks a lot more daunting without Rooney, but I still have faith in this team, and its the team as a collective that needs to come together and make up for the absence of Wayne.
For a start, i'm glad Arsenal dropped points last weekend, meaning a draw will be enough to keep us top this weekend, which i'd be happy with to be honest.
If he can perform as he did against Bolton then maybe we will be ok.It is a big miss having Wayne out but united have always managed to come through these handicaps and hopefully will do so again.Macheda and Diouf will need to show their worth now they have the chance.
