Mike Gesicki Dolphins Jersey . The Manchester United forward was pictured looking worse for wear at a wedding reception at the England team hotel after their World Cup Qualifier against Scotland.Rooney initially apologised for his behaviour before describing the media coverage of the incident as disgraceful following Uniteds 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Saturday. But Carragher, speaking during Monday Night Footballs Twitter Q&A, does not think the Manchester United forward is solely to blame. Wayne Rooney in action during the World Cup 2018 Qualifier against Scotland The biggest problem is not Wayne Rooney or the players, the former Liverpool defender said.For me looking at the situation after a week or so, the biggest problem is the FA.Wheres all this information coming from? Every day theres another question asked. Was he allowed to stay up? The next day the answer is there. Who was he with? Theres information coming out of the FA. Wales manager Chris Coleman says he doesnt think theres a problem with Wayne Rooney having a drink on international duty Gareth Southgate was part of a squad at Euro 96 when something went on before they got to the tournament, Carragher added.It was a different climate and culture, I get that. But the way they dealt with it was collective responsibility. Wayne Rooney wasnt the only player to go out because the rest of the squad were in a night club. I know where I would want my player, in the hotel bar.Wheres the collective responsibility? Why is it all on Wayne Rooney?

Despite Arsenals financial firepower, the 31-year-old midfielder was the only arrival in the January transfer window. Signed until the end of the season as injury cover, Kallstrom might not be fit until mid-March after arriving Friday at Arsenal having injured his back earlier in the week while training with Spartak Moscow.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jered Weaver pitched into jams and out of trouble in every early inning, waiting for the Los Angeles Angels slumbering bats to provide some help. The Angels came through with just enough offence to seal a sweep of Philadelphia. Howie Kendrick delivered a go-ahead, two-run single in the sixth inning, and Weaver pitched six resilient innings in the Angels 4-3 victory over the Phillies on Wednesday night. Weaver (13-7) yielded two runs and eight hits for the Angels, improving to 6-1 in his last 10 starts despite trailing 2-1 in the sixth. "You keep this team in the game, and the offence is going to come through," said Weaver, who improved to 16-4 in interleague play. "If you can limit those guys, well always have a chance." Brennan Boesch drove in two runs for the Angels, who salvaged a 3-4 homestand by sweeping two games from the last-place Phillies. Los Angeles (70-49) pulled within 2 1/2 games of Oakland atop the overall major league standings. The Angels once-powerful offence struggled throughout the homestand, but came alive in the sixth inning of both games against the Phillies. One night after Los Angeles scored seven runs in the sixth, it scored three more against A.J. Burnett (6-13), who had shut down the Angels in the first five. Albert Pujols started the rally with a one-out double, and Kendricks bases-loaded bloop landed just inside the right-field line. Boesch, recalled from the minors Tuesday, then added an RBI groundout. He also had a sacrifice fly in the second. "We didnt kill the ball, and the early runs werent there, but we broke through and held a lead," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Right now, weve got to scratch and claw if youre not going to score runs. Thats the only way youre going to beat goood pitchers like Burnett. Dan Marino Jersey. quot; Burnett gave up five hits and four walks over six innings, dropping to 0-5 in his last six starts. "I dont feel snakebit," Burnett said. "Its in my control. I mean, it definitely hasnt gone the way I wanted it to. Im very discouraged. Im not going to lie. Im not a bit happy, but the season is not over." Marlon Byrd and Jimmy Rollins had early run-scoring singles for the Phillies, who have lost nine straight games to the Angels since 2003. Grady Sizemore tripled and scored on Domonic Browns groundout in the eighth against Joe Smith, but Huston Street pitched a perfect ninth for his seventh save. Street has made 10 scoreless appearances since the Angels acquired the All-Star closer from San Diego last month. TROUT SNARED: Mike Trout went 0 for 4, capping an ugly 4-for-29 homestand for the Angels MVP candidate. Trout, who grew up a Phillies fan in southern New Jersey, saw his average drop from .305 to .294 in seven games. A NEW WEAVER: The Angels longtime ace pitched two days after his wife, Kristin, gave birth to their second child, daughter Josie. Weaver will bring his family home from the hospital on Thursday before catching up with the Angels in Texas on Friday for the series opener. "My wife let me get my rest," Weaver said.
