Surely in your book, mcteeth, him having a few drinks will have no effect on his performance levels whatsoever?

Well they do say form is temporary and class is permanent... :yeahright:

This isn't a Rooney dig either, I'd feel the same if Lowe was out trashed at 4am wearing his Rovers training kit. It's just a stupid thing to do.

But it's has been documented how easily Rooney's fitness suffers and the weight can pile on, if anything he should be extra vigilant with stuff like this especially in the twilight of his career.

He should have at least put a proper shirt on.

But he shouldn't have any! It's terrible, these professional footballers thinking they have a real life aside from time on the pitch/on the training ground.

Real life?

Going into someone else's wedding and getting trashed till 5am and trying to play the piano is fairly strange behaviour. Doing it when you're him and in those circumstance is frankly ridiculous.

There's a million and one things he could have done with some of the other players in the squad that would have been far less irresponsible.

Whether you're just trying to rib me or even worse genuinely defending him as some kind of victim I really just don't understand.

Just to put it in deeply uninteresting context, I like many have a photo ID work pass on a lanyard and will go to the pub for drinks after work I always remove it when I leave the office due the company reputation, it is a very sensible and easy rule to follow. And that is just dealing with the stupidity of him wearing his training kit.

It wasn't someone he knew then? Explains the lack or shirt.
