Nobody Gave A Shite, But Rooney's Assist For United's Winner Was A Crime Against Football

Nobody Gave A Shite, But Rooney's Assist For United's Winner Was A Crime Against Football
By Gavan Casey Updated

Even if you are a Manchester United fan (from Ireland, that is), you're an eejit if you weren't watching Dundalk tonight.

The sooner United remove themselves from the Europa League the better; it's clear that, despite their best efforts, the players simply don't care for the competition, as was apparently evident during a reportedly horrendous display at home to Zorya Luhansk of Ukraine.

Mourinho's men won by a goal to nil at Old Trafford thanks to a brave-ish header at the far post by Zlatan Ibrahimvovic. But this goal was all about the striker known to Sky Sports News watchers as 'that man Wayne Rooney'.

Admonished and maligned all season for his sluggish and frankly woeful displays, Rooney - by our account, at least - seemed to almost instantaneously invent a new way to strike a ball, volleying it so recklessly into the Old Trafford turf that it's a wonder it even bounced back upwards at all, before it exquisitely and inexplicably floated onto the head of Ibrahimovic. Precision stuff. Take a look.

Robbie Savage described it as "clever movement" from Rooney, which...look, it's getting late, so we're just going to leave that there.

A return to form for Rooney, then, which will see him start all of United's remaining 45 or so games this season.
