    SMS Message: Nostalgia of Rooney return overshadowed by disjointed Everton season. Will finish with a healthy pay packet in US. from Daniel Mercieca
    Daniel Mercieca
    SMS Message: Rooney has been a bit of an enigma this past season. He would hit a 40 yard pass to land on Walcott's bootlaces and then give the ball away with a sloppy 10 yarder. I guess concentration is the key...lets' wish him all the best... from Neil, Cumbria

  7. 'The odd moment to treasure'

    Wayne Rooney

    Wayne Rooney is Everton’s leading scorer with 11 goals, starting with a spectacular headed winner on the opening day against Stoke City at home followed by a goal in a 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

    He fulfilled a long-held ambition with his first Merseyside derby goal, a penalty in a 1-1 draw at Liverpool in November, followed up later that month with arguably the highlight of Everton’s season.

    Rooney scored a hat-trick in Everton’s 4-0 win against West Ham United at Goodison Park, capped with a spectacular strike from his own half, all watched by Sam Allardyce as he prepared to succeed Ronald Koeman with caretaker David Unsworth in charge.

    It was all downhill from there, sadly, with Rooney’s appearances restricted under Allardyce in a reined-in midfield role and his frustrations made public when he was clearly furious to be substituted in the goalless derby draw with Liverpool at Goodison.

    Rooney was never going to be the explosive talent of his earlier years – but he still provided the odd moment to treasure in a desperate season for Everton.

    Dale Townsley: A legend who has been criticised too many times by typical English fans. Can never enjoy what’s in front of them. Well done Wayne Rooney on a top class Premier League career from the age of 16. Always one of my favourite players.

    Ryan Bracken: Speaks evidence of Rooney's ability that he's both United's and England's top scorers yet you still feel like he should of achieved more than he did. Career has been on the down-slide for a while sadly, one big final payday for him in the States.

  9. 'No fairytale but not a failure'

    Wayne Rooney

    Wayne Rooney’s return to his beloved Everton last summer was meant to provide an emotional final flourish to a magnificent career that started at Goodison Park and led to him becoming Manchester United and England’s all-time record goalscorer.

    It did not turn into the fairytale he and Everton wanted when he was paraded in front of hundreds of flashbulbs in July – but it should not be painted as a failure either.

    The 32-year-old returned to the club he left in summer 2004 intent on driving Everton forward into a new era of success under then manager Ronald Koeman.

    It did not work out as Koeman was sacked in October after a nightmare start but when Rooney’s final campaign in the Premier Leagues is remembered, he was still involved in Everton’s best moments this season.

    Oliver Smith: Didn't know he was even still playing... done nothing for Everton this season. Such a strange fall from grace, from one of the deadliest strikers in the league to "playing in front of the back four".

    Darren Peters: He achieved so much including England caps/goals, but so much more was expected. He needed to change the course of more games.

    Tarn MacArthur: Hard to think of another player who has gone so hard and so long from such a young age in the Premier League. 16 years is it?

  11. 'Would have to be massive for him to leave'


    Wayne Rooney

    Earlier this week, Everton managr Allardyce said Wayne Rooney wants to stay and dismissed suggestions England's record goalscorer is frustrated with his role.

    "It would have to be massive for him to want leave Everton," the former England manager told Talksport.

    "I've not had a problem from day one with Wayne (but) the Wayne Rooney saga continues on doesn't it?"

    Deny Clarke: Neglecting his body over the years has caught up with him. Unforgivable considering he shared a changing room with Ronaldo and must’ve seen that mans work ethic and habits. Might as well drop a level and take a payday in the States.

    Ihaq: Past his prime will have one large payday in DC then retire.

    Liam Geraghty: Americans – you've had the Rooney Rule, now get ready for Rooney's rule.

    James Willis: His career has been slowly dying a quiet death for a couple of years, so no... I'd be glad.

    David Shaw: He was a top player and I wish him well in the States.

    Red Devils: He should have had more appearances, more goals, more assists and more trophies if he kept himself fit and we didn't bottle some finals and title run ins.

  14. Wayne Rooney: Everton forward agrees 'deal in principle' to join MLS side DC United


    Wayne Rooney

    Wayne Rooney has agreed a deal in principle that could see him leave Everton for Major League Soccer side DC United this summer in a £12.5m deal.

    Rooney's representatives have been in the US to negotiate terms and the former England skipper is willing to leave the Premier League club.

    Nothing has been signed yet and uncertainty over Everton boss Sam Allarydce's position means the forward could stay at Goodison Park.

    Rooney re-joined Everton in July 2017.

    Wayne Rooney's return to Everton has not provided the fairytale ending to his Premier League that he wanted - but he was not a failure either. He provided some of the best moments in a joyless season at Goodison Park.
