As good as Rooney is, I'm a bit disappointed he hasn't really got to the "elite" level that he can carry a team win a game single handedly.

I will say his fitness is underrated. He is a naturally stocky build and was fairly out of shape as a young player. Today however his work rate is fantastic and rarely stops in a game, tracking back and defending as good as any forward in the league.

He has turned out as a very well rounded player, maybe that has attributed the reduction of magic game changing contributions.
