    I get that, but Beckham also had a much cosier upbringing by all accounts, so was more mature at that age, yet still acted rashly in a pressurised situation.

    I just think Rooney's done well to change his behaviour given the huge attention and obstacles he's had to overcome. He's done some daft stuff, but he was a kid from a rough background who was a millionaire at 16 and playing in the PL. He's settled down and seems focused, mature and ready to me. Like I said, he's being talked about as captain material by people that know infinitely more about football than you or I.
