stash, I really do think it is the comments from mancs that make people think Rooney is overrated. Apart from the great performance a while back in the euro championships, he's never really repeated it at the top level. Crouch has done better at the international level. In fact I think Crouch is more of a natural striker than Rooney!
I personally think he's had his time to prove himself and everyone should realise that he is good but no that good!
