102 posts Has Potential To Be Special
Where do you guys get the most out of rooney ?

I could use him as a cdm/cm in a team looking like this.
442 or 3412 ig, all full chem except robben and klaiber on 7.
Mendy varane desailly klaiber
Robben gullit rooney kaka
Butra mbappe

Or i could use him as a st in a team looking like this.
Same formation, all full chem except Gerrard/freeze marquinhos on 7.
Mendy varane desailly klaiber
Kaka gullit Gerrard/freeze marquinhos mbappe
Butra rooney

With second variation i could use 41212 narrow aswell in some games.

    CM is his best position however he can play all those if needed

    He can play anywhere. Best position is defo CAM with engine

    ST for me. Too good to be a midfielder, but depends on the squad.

    So think it depends on your play style. My CAms score as many if not more than my strikers anyway.

    Found him best at st for me. Has a great shot, composure and good dribbling but just feels a bit awkward to use for me. If you have him as a get forward attacking mid to make late runs into the box then he may be great for you, I just find I have to make half a yard for him to shoot and it's not always that easy

    Probably depends on playstyle but let's be honest - you simply have to do him. I play him CM and he's class, but I know fullwell that if I gain an icon CM or quality sbc comes out a bit further down the line, I'd happil play him CAM / ST to make sure he's in the team

    I'm still undecided whether to get him. He'd be on the bench now. Might wait for the new season to see what icons there are to see if I could link him

    I played with him this wl in both positions. I feel he gets wasted as cm/cdm, but i had engine on him, maybe he s better there with a shadow ?
    I will use him as a cam or st, his shots are smth else, decent passing.
    I will have to use cheeky keylor Navas in goal due to some adjustments, haven t heard many good things about him.
    Team 4222
    Keylor Navas
    Mendy varane freeze marquinhos klaiber
    Mbappe desailly kaka gullit
    Butra rooney
    Switch ig marquinhos to desailly and kaka to gullit

    I play him CM and it works he also comes up with goals from there.

    It all depends on what strikers you allready have. I have CR7 and Eto as strikers and Kaka as CAM. So rooney suits the CM role best in my squad
