Race Row: Rio vs Arsenal’s Fabregas

Rio Ferdinand sensibly called for the FIFA to start docking points of teams whose fans exhibited racist behaviour.

Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown all played a big part in England’s 5-1 victory over Kazakhstan.

It’s All About United As England Beat Kazakhstan

Rio Ferdinand, who was oddly overlooked for captaincy by Fabio Capello, lead out England tonight, filling in for TinyTears’ who is struggling to overcome a reoccurring back injury.

Something that I’ve really grown fond of over the past season or more is watching Rio Ferdinand’s reaction when we score an important goal. Just check out YouTube clips of him after Owen Hargreaves scored against Arsenal, or Carlos Tevez against Blackburn, and you’ll see him go totally apeshit.

Former FA Chief Reveals Neville’s England Strike Plan On Rio’s Behalf

The lengthy ban and extortionate fine dished out by the FA to Rio Ferdinand is something I have challenged time and again on this blog. There have been countless incidents which are comparable to that of Ferdinand, from Christian Negouai to Adrian Mutu, where their punishments were nowhere near as severe as that of Ferdinand. [...]
