News just in from Old Trafford is that Manchester United and Englad forward Wayne Rooney is to attempt to curb his enthusiasm for criticising anything that moves, by having a muzzle fitted.
Rooney is to be penalised by the FA for making comments to TV cameras in the wake of United's defeat at Chelsea last the weekend, when the player seemed to mouth "12 men" as he left the field after the game, seemingly making the insinuation that the referee was part of the Chelsea team.
This concept is not unknown in football, however, as referees regularly turn out to play for Manchester United, sometimes with a United shirt underneath their ref's top.
It's not the first time Rooney has made a dick of himself.
He's always doing it.
The muzzle is to be fitted on the orders of Sir Alex Ferguson who, himself, may wear one if the Rooney experiment turns out to be successful.
