One United fan

MANCHESTER UNITED fans say they want Wayne Rooney to GO.

The England international fears hostile United supporters could drive him out of Old Trafford, according to a national newspaper.
And United diehards - who are upset at Rooney for putting in his second transfer request - have taken to internet forums to express their desire for Rooney to leave.
A thread entitled Wayne Rooney - Confirmed transfer request has attracted 1.75m views and thousands of post on supporters' site
And while the striker gets some backing, most want to see the back of him.
One supporters says that "he doesn't want to play here, so let him go and bring in somebody who does" while a fellow fan adds that "it’s not even debatable that selling Rooney would benefit our transfer capabilities".
"I say we get rid and move on" is the view from another Red Devil - and that seems to be the over-riding view of United fans.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Old Trafford ace while Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has spoken fondly of his talents.
Many fans taunted Rooney with boos when he received his Premier League winners’ medal last month - and it seems his fears that he might be forced out seem more than vindicated.
