That was like reading my own mind…….when I look at his Instagram I just get the feeling that it’s all about him, he’s in it for himself and isn’t a team player.Roofe is a player I just can’t warm too. Feel like he should be contributing more. His social media feels very self centred and not convinced he is in it for the team.
Hope he scores the winner on Sunday
I think too many of our support are just willing Roofe to be better than he really is.
I don’t care about his social media though.
Unless he’s being negative about the club or his time here.
And?He has more goals than Morelos and Kent combined so far this season.
Are you seriously using a player who has been out injured for months as some kind of evidence as to Roofe being such a good and important player?
You should add in Defoe as well then.
That’d make it more credible.
What doesn’t make sense is including the stats of a player who has missed a lot of this season due to injury.You literally quoted the guy and put the statement “feel like he should be contributing more” in bold.
I then said, for context, he’s contributed/scored more goals than Morelos and Kent combined this season.
Then you came back with that post above which doesn’t even make sense.

If, and it's a huge if - his stock is still high enough in England I'd sell if we could recoup our money to invest in someone else that is able to hopefully stay fit and contribute more.Roofe really is made of chocolate.
He has struggled to stay fit for 10 games in a row since his leeds days.
A passenger who has scored more goals than any striker this season and last season with less game timeHe’s rarely fit enough to play and when he plays he’s not sharp enough because he’s been unfit so often.
Problem is nobody will match his wages or pay a big fee so unless he decides to knuckle down we’re stuck with a passenger we can ill afford
Roofe is our top goalscorer with 9 goals in 987 minutes. Kent has 1 in 881 minutes.Kent has been out injured most of the season.morelos well enough said on that subject.
The Roofe hate is just our own prime example of how oldheads can’t warm to the modern footballer with funny penalty run-ups and active social media accounts, no matter how talented they are
Many posters on here have the same opinion of Pogba and Griezmann as they do of Roofe
I’d rather he didn’t play any internationals, and he is quite injury prone, but his lack of game time has mainly been down to Gerrard sticking him on the bench half the time so that stat is a bit unreliable
Was told something similar with regards to Defoe by a guy with a decent track record, however Defoe hardly played last season either and less subs this year, surely he knew what was going to happen?I was told this week that Gerrard and Roofe had a fall out, that also centered around Defoe and why he’d been bombed out. Defoe tried to resolve it, and Gerrard felt he was undermining him.
That came from a current player, who used to play for us and is still pals with a few around the squad.
They’re a friend of a friend, and I just happened to be in their company via work. It would certainly make sense.
