This piece appears in full on TEAMtalk.
The last week has surely confirmed what we all knew already – Wayne Rooney is the most divisive figure in English football.
Wading through the views of journalists, ex-pros and – of course – the TEAMtalk Your Say boards, there appears to be no real consensus of opinion.
While Harry Redknapp and Alan Shearer have been quick to rubbish suggestions that England’s star man should stay at home for Euro 2012, others are calling for Fabio Capello to write him off as a talented liability.
Motormouth Stan Collymore and World Cup winner George Cohen believe Rooney should be dumped from the squad and seem to have the public on their side.
At the time of writing, a Sky Sports poll suggests 68% do not want Rooney selected for England.
