According to Duffmon Rooney has been shot for 2 seasons... yet managed to score 15 goals last season.
He actually scored 12 in all competitions last season. In 41 appearances. This season he has 5 goals in 42.
Shot, and getting worse.
15 last season. 8 in the league. 2 in FA Cup. 1 I League Cup. 4 in Europe.
Has been played a lot deeper recently so would expect him to get less.
Clear to me his performances have dipped as his confidence has. Whoever gets him next season will have an asset on their hands though.
He's not an Albion player. He's made for a Chinese or American team who have cash to burn and a profile in need of raising. Meanwhile back in a competitive league which matters...
