Manchester United fans react to Wayne Rooney display against Swansea City

Manchester United dropped two careless points at the Theatre of Dreams this weekend, as Swansea City were allowed a way back into the game late on. On the whole, our performance just wasn’t good enough, and if we continue like that then there is absolutely no chance we will be in the Champions League next season.

The poor result came from Jose Mourinho’s side sitting back and allowing our opponents onto them. Isn’t it pretty obvious that if you invite pressure like that then the other team will eventually find a way through and score? One man seems to be coming in for all the stick; Wayne Rooney.

Although the club captain found the back of the net from the penalty spot, you do find it hard to see what else he did right in the 90-minute match. He looked slow, his passing was awful and he just didn’t grab the game by the scruff of its neck.

We needed a leader when the going got tough and the 31-year-old from Croxteth just didn’t step up. Instead, he hid until Mourinho was forced into substituting the forward.

As you’d imagine, Twitter didn’t have the kindest of words for Rooney following the match, and in all honesty, you find it hard to disagree with anything that the fans are saying right now.
