Rooney passed fit

Rooney has been passed fit by independent doctors for the T&T game this evening. I really wanted to see the Greatest Player in the World in the World Cup, not for England but because I think he has the potential to go down as one of the all time greats by performing at the World Cup. And that it makes yet another one of United's players the all time greats (along with Edwards, Law, Charlton, Best, Robson, Cantona, Keane, Giggs: do you want me to go on? I expect people wouldn't agree as much with Coppell, Scholes and Hughes but ask me and I'll give you very good reasons).

I'm no football historian but I think you've got it right. England are desperate for Rooney right now--perfect storyline...impotent front line, tepid performance against Paraguay...and he comes in and they win out...I have to root for someone after the US loses to Italy, might as well be the country of (distant!) origin.

You missed Gary Neville and Beckham (underrated by European critics), a touch behind the others but both ahead of Scholes at least.

Did you see the Argentina/S&M game. What football! Looking forwartd to their game against the Dutch.

As you judge teams based on their connections to Old Trafford are you backing the Dutch or the Argentines? Does Van the Man still count as one of your own?

James, your World Cup blogging is lagging. We want to know what you think about Sven picking the Roo, and how you rate England's chances at this half-way point. Forget the Early Christian History, what about Recent English Football?

You're right Mark: it's scandalous. Time for repentance...
