United wins the treble!!!!!!!!!


Rooney out for a month

Posted: August 27, 2012 in Matchday

Rooney, who surprisingly started on the bench rather than partnering new signing Robin van Persie up front, had blood streaming from his leg after being caught by the boot of Hugo Rodallega and had to be carried off on a stretcher.

“He’s got a very bad gash. It looks as if he’ll be out for about four weeks. Obviously you’ve got to be careful with these things because of infections,” Ferguson told Sky.

England forward Rooney, now doubtful for the first Champions League group game in mid-September, had started Monday’s opening 1-0 defeat at former club Everton when former Arsenal striker Van Persie was on the bench.

After scoring a goal against Fulham, 2012.

Sir Alex Ferguson: “I think we saw the two sides of Manchester United. After cruise control, we made a terrible mistake for the second goal and it became a match. It should never have been a match, some of our football was fantastic. But we lost that second goal when we should have been in easy street. Fulham tried to slow the tempo of the match down. They do it very well because they’ve got several players over 30 years of age, they’re a very experienced team. After their second goal, we struggled. The first-half performance was fantastic. The intensity of our game was terrific. It was a fantastic goal by Robin van Persie and by half-time we were leading 3-1, it could have been four or five.”
