Rooney never scored 19 LEAGUE goals a season. You make it sound like playing with Giggs is a disadvantage for Rooney. If you think ManUtd didn't have talent around Rooney, then Michael Owen had even less.
If you want to count overall goals, Fowler scored 18, 31, 36, and 31 from the age of 18-22.
Rooney has no competition in the England squad. I'm not sure exactly how many goals Peter Crouch has for England but I know it's not that far off Rooney's goal tally, but it doesn't mean Crouch is as good as Rooney does it?
93-94 was Fowler's first season.
1996 England had Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, and Teddy Sheringham. Terry Venebles is old school and doesn't give out England caps left and right like Ericksson.
1998 was when Fowler hurt his knee. Young Michael Owen came on the scene and England had Shearer, Owen, Les Ferdinand, and Sheringham for the World Cup.
Fowler was never the same after his injury and because of his lifestyle off the pitch.
Rooney can play different positions, so can Tevez.
btw, in Rooney you bought yourself a player who's broken his foot three times. good job.
