The 200 club

Wayne Rooney netted his 200th goal for Manchester United in their Champions League win over Bayer Leverkusen.

Last Updated: 20/09/13 at 08:53 Post Comment

Rooney is only the fourth United player in history to reach the milestone after Sir Bobby Charlton (249 goals), Denis Law (237) and Jack Rowley (211).

At just 27-years-old, Rooney looks on target to become the club's all-time leading goalscorer and with 200 goals in 406 appearances, he averages a goal almost every other game.

After the game at Old Trafford, manager David Moyes said: "To surpass Sir Bobby would really be something".

Which one is your favourite?

Manchester United v Fenerbahce - September 2004

In what can be classed as one of the greatest scoring debuts in football history, Rooney tucked away a hat-trick in his first game for the Red Devils during their 6-2 thrashing of Fenerbahce in the Champions League.

Manchester United v Newcastle - April 2005

United were 1-0 down when Rooney spotted a poor clearance from the Magpies' Peter Ramage and charged forward to unleash a powerful volley that goalkeeper Shay Given had no chance of stopping.

Manchester United v Arsenal - April 2006

The striker has a good record against the Gunners so picking the best goal is a tough choice. We've gone for his 2006 goal at Old Trafford. A magic bit of skill to bring the ball down was followed up with a pin-point finish.

Manchester United v Manchester City - February 2011

An iconic goal against the club's fiercest rivals, Rooney's overhead kick winner against City was voted the best goal in the Premier League's 20-year history .

West Ham v Manchester United - April 2011

He made the headlines for swearing at a camera during the game, but a brilliant curling free-kick was the real talking point and part of a fantastic hat-trick against the Hammers.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
