Leon Best: Understands the fans' frustration

The 26-year-old is still waiting for his Rovers debut after a summer move from Newcastle, and is not expected to return to first-team action under Henning Berg until next year.

But Best is confident, with the attendances increasing following the replacement of Steve Kean, an immediate return to the Barclays Premier League is not beyond the Lancashire club.

He said: "I understand why some fans get upset and want to show their anger. Everyone just wants us to go up, we all want the same thing.

"The season I went up with Newcastle, when we played at home the fans were the 12th man. Sometimes that is what you need.

"We have been up and down. I have very high expectations of the team and I expect the highest. It is a very hard league but it is unbelievable seeing the fans coming back because I think that is vital."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
