Rooney gets the same level of over generous praise as well.
Shearer was brilliant, second only to Thierry in the Prem. The GOAT striker of English football is Greaves, that one isn't even up for debate tbh. Rooney can **** right off, his WC finals goals pathetic return alone means he doesn't get the praise that Utd fans prob think he deserves. Tbh I'm not sure all of them rate him that highly anyway.
