munchmore:I kinda hope we will push Rooney up front again. To me he hasnt been as good playing the nr. 10 CAM role as when he was more of a pure striker.
Trazzz:IMO I think that we will play Kagawa in the No. 10 and Ronney uptop playing a kind of False 9. Free flowing football here we come.
Moyesy:Or will it a case of fitting Kagawa in around Rooney?
Although Kagawa has come out and said he would like to play in the no.10 role, the position Rooney currently occupies for us, I think he will spend quite a bit of time on the left side of midfield. I can only see SAF playing Kagawa in the no.10 role in Champions League games or big Premier League games with Rooney being up top.
For a good number of years now, if Rooney has been fit, he has played. There has never really been any competition for him for that "in the hole" role, could the signing of Kagawa be this competition?
Its no secret, over the last couple of years Rooney has gone through a few spells of playing quite poorly, yet often remained in the 1st team. Its always been a case of playing his way back into form. SAF was also slightly critical of him at times last season for taking his foot off the pedal.
Depending on the form of Kagawa when he does play in the hole, could it be possible that Rooney would no longer be one of the 1st names on the teamsheet?
Will Rooney need to up his game to keep his place? Or will it a case of fitting Kagawa in around Rooney?
