Forwards don't necessarily have to do more than score a goal to be deemed to have done their job in a match and it's a good thing because that's about all Wayne Rooney did in Sunday's big win.
Perhaps the media were so taken by Wayne Rooney's self-deprecating goal celebration and United's collective excellence that they overlooked the rest of Rooney's day when declaring the extent to which the forward "led" United to victory over Spurs. Rooney made one great move and finished it off with a well-taken goal. Beyond that he intercepted two passes. That's it. If you want to give him credit for his pre-match speech as part of what inspired United's victory then that's fine but let's not over-sell his on-field contribution. The midfield was excellent, Rooney had his moment of brilliance, and Spurs were really not good - that's how United routed Spurs. It wasn't the Wayne Show by any stretch of the imagination.
