rooney is talented but a liability in the major international comps. he can't handle his temper & gets frustrated. he also can't handle the pressure either.
he either freezes under the pressure & plays awfully like the last WC or he gets frustrated & loses his temper & gets himself sent off like in the last euros.
there is no evidence to suggest he will ever handle playing in a big major internation competition apart from some good performances in the group stages of the euros before last but don't forget that wasnt against any of the major nations.
3 match ban is standard practice for violent conduct. i do think england get mistreated by FIFA but not on this occasion.
if FIFA do hate us, i hardly think they are worried about us winning something!
as for rooney walking in to any team? hardly think barca would take a stupid angry yob like rooney.
my issue is what has rooney got to do to be dropped?! he was woeful for 3 games against average teams in the WC & still didnt get dropped.
now he has banned for all the group games because of his own weak stupid mind & surely we still cant take him!
maybe he will have to mix the awful WC performances with his temper & anger red cards before england even consider dropping him after a ban!
thats part of our problem, we are so slow at dropping big names.
