Falcao is a BOSS who's had a great season at Atletico and has won a couple of Europa League's too boot, but Rooney has been doing it in the PL and CL for years. There's not a lot between them, but Rooney's CL performances over recent years give him the edge - 14 goals in the Champions League knockout stages, the highest quality of football you'll see at the moment, is a superb record when you consider Van Nistelrooy and Ibrahimovic have managed 9 between them in their whole careers. Messi has run away with that record already but Rooney is only a few goals off the likes of Shevchenko and Inzaghi and will be second on that list when he's all said and done. He's also so much more than just a goalscorer, he's a brilliant passer of the ball, he tracks back, he's versatile as well playing at striker or centre-forward, also played on the left wing for Man United for a couple of years and was brilliant and even dropped to CM earlier this season for United and was their best midfielder.
