Time for Wayne's World

A few years ago Aston Villa got to the final of the FA Youth Cup and played Everton. Myself and a couple of mates drove up to Liverpool to watch the match... which Villa won comfortably 4-1. We were magnificent that night, but Everton had a 15-year old little fat kid playing for them called Wayne Rooney, and he was instantly recognisable as a star. For half an hour he terrorised us, put Everton 1-0 in front, (then displayed a T-shirt to the Evertonians saying 'Once a blue, always a blue' - sorry, Elephunt) and before he got knackered it really did look like he was going to beat us on his own. Well, tonight should be the night for Wayne Rooney to step up onto the world stage. Go for it Sven, let the boy loose!
