REMEMBER the name...
Wayne Rooney. These are the famous words that marked a boy's arrival as one of the biggest talents in world football.
Ten years on, that same boy is returning to the scene of his footballing birth to once again make a name for himself.
It is amazing to think a decade has passed since the Liverpudlian made his top-flight bow as a raw 16-year-old for Everton against Tottenham.
That Rooney should be heading back to Goodison Park to mark the occasion seems somehow fitting, even if the reception he gets from the supporters he has always considered himself one of tends to be less than friendly these days.
With a total of four Barclays Premier League titles a Champions League winners' medal to show for his time at Manchester United, Rooney has no need to justify why he left the Toffees just two years after that momentous debut.
But he realises there is much more to achieve.
"I'm still fairly young," he said. "I feel young anyway.
"It's great to have played in the Premier League for 10 years. It's an exciting league and I still feel exactly the same about my football as I did when I made my debut. It does feel like a long time ago, though.
"I just hope I can play for another 10 years and have as much enjoyment as I did in my first 10."
Rooney and his fellow United team-mates will have watched on with great interest as rivals Manchester City struggled to get the better of Southampton at the Etihad yesterday.
Sir Alex Ferguson will know there is little to no margin for error after last season's championship was lost on the last day on goal difference.
Therefore, the fact that City were forced to come from a goal down to win will surely be of some encouragement to him.
However, to get off to a winning start themselves, United will have to kick off the campaign against one of their bogey teams of recent seasons.
Two years ago, Everton scored twice in injury time to snatch a point on home soil and their equally staggering comeback at Old Trafford last April, when they recovered from 4-2 down inside the final 10 minutes, is viewed by many as the day United's title aspirations suffered their most damaging jolt.
"It is a really tough first game," he said. "Over the last few years Everton have not really started well in the league.
"That game last season probably did cost us the league, so we have an incentive to get the three points."
He added: "Everton work extremely hard. They are a really fit team.
"This time, we need to make sure if we do go ahead, we stay focused and see the game out."
Those at Goodison still remember the boy's name, tonight we'll see if the man can make his mark.
