08:17 AM ET 01.22 | English soccer star Wayne Rooney has continued his foray into social media, relaunching his Facebook page Friday and picking up 500,000 fans who "liked" it within 30 minutes, according to UK media reports. Rooney, who first set up his page two weeks ago, sparked interest when he posted a short video welcome message, and then later a photograph of himself sitting on the couch with video game controller in hand, accompanied by the caption, "Just got home from training, now about to relax and play some FIFA. Looking forward to the game on Sunday!"

The ref last night let everything go... calls seemed random. Shocking that the one Rico Clark scored the goal. Brek Shea is by far the best young'n... and Benny needs more playing time.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I fell asleep during the game.

I awoke just in time to see the Venezuelan Triage Unit being set up on the field and Bob Bradley's adopted child score the only goal.

I love to see when teams get **** ed in the **** after faking a bunch of injuries to waste time. It's truly a joy.

The only things I have to say about yesterdays Arsenal game are **** you Arshavin and Koscielny was a beast.

Pretty bad when the Captain is criticizing the coach for making the sub, while the substitution is being made.

But yeah, terrible choice from Wenger right there. But you can't really disagree with the outcome. ManU was the better team for most of the match.

Meanwhile on Merseyside, the Toffees were very lucky to get a point versus Blackburn, with a 1-1 draw. Yeah, the Blackburn that is currently in the relegation zone.

We managed to score one goal, only because the ref didn't spot an intentional handball by Felliani. It was pretty blatant.

Is it wrong to kinda wish that your team gets relegated, only because you know that it's the only way that stuff is really going to change?

In other Toffee news: According to reports, Everton is pursuing a loan deal with Fiorentina's Cesci.
