This makes you laugh as Everton are relying on Wayne Rooney as the key to the club's Premiership survival.The 18-year-old striker, who has been
criticised for playing better for England than he does for his struggling club side, has started to hit the sort of form Everton need from him to
ensure their safety.
And he will be back in his preferred striking role, rather than the midfield position he has occupied this term, when Everton face in-form Aston Villa
at Goodison Park. Prior to last week's two-goal performance in the 3-3 draw at Southampton, Rooney had failed to score in nine previous matches and
the knives were out,but why? He was playing in midfield well out of position so thats why he wasn't scoring,its so easy when the team is playing badly
to blame your star player.
I can't see Everton hanging on to him,they are a rubbish club and i would expect some big bids comming in for him in the summer.
