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. Following the pitiful fine FIFA dished out to Croatia after their fans made monkey noises whenever Emile Heskey was on the ball in England’s recent, Ferdinand was concerned at FIFA’s poor commitment to kicking racism out of [...]

How The Press Rated United’s England Players

How The Press Rated United’s England Players

Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown all played a big part in England’s 5-1 victory over Kazakhstan. Whilst the scoreline is not entirely reflective of the match, particularly when you consider the teams went in 0-0 at half time, our lads had a big part to play in the result. After the match, Oliver [...]

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. Playing for his country means a lot to Rio and he would be right to feel hard done by after missing out on the permanent captaincy, particularly [...]

Rio Can’t Wait To Captain England In Front Of Family

TinyTears’ reoccurring back injury will keep him out of this weekend’s England qualifier against Kazakhstan, meaning Rio Ferdinand will lead the team out as captain. Whether he will be given the job next Wednesday will depend on an assessment of Mr Chelsea’s injury at the weekend. ———— The Republik of Mancunia has brought out a [...]

Rio Doesn’t Want Arsenal Keeper With England

When the stories first started about Manuel Almunia playing for England, I was rather taken aback that Arsenal could have a goalkeeper in his 30′s who’d yet to pick up an international cap. I suppose I mustn’t have been paying attention to Mad Jens’ rants when he lost his place to Almunia, but it certainly [...]

Rio Has A Pop At Blatter

Rio Ferdinand was the target of racist abuse when playing for England against Spain in 2004, along with team mates Ashley Cole and Shaun Wright-Phillips. Every time they went near the ball, the crowd could be heard making monkey noises, leading Rio to almost walk off the pitch. “I don’t think anybody back in England [...]

Rio: I Swear A Lot When We Score

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. Today, Ferdinand has answered a whole [...]

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. [...]

Wes and Rio In Nightclub Scuffle

There have been reports this morning that Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown, both of whom played against Blackburn on Saturday, and have been picked for Fabio Capello’s squad again, were involved in a bit of bother last night. Enjoying a night out in a member’s only bar in Manchester, the Circle Club, they ran in to [...]

This Is Why We Needed Rio To Be Captain

Whilst many readers of RoM couldn’t give a fuck about the England football team, there was greater interest in the goings on of the national team when the issue of Fabio Capello’s captain came about. Rio Ferdinand looked favourite to be given the armband and it is of course rather nice to see the effort [...]

Which United Player Is Next On City’s Wishlist?

Whilst we’ve been told to fear Manchester City’s new takeover, there seems to be a clear feeling of ‘if anyone can fuck this up, it’s City’ buzzing around Manchester. Whilst the new owners may have all the money in the World, the fact they tabled over £200 million worth of bids on the transfer deadline [...]

Are The FA Having A Laugh? Rio vs Barton

I am no stranger to starting rants targeted at the FA, for what I find to be increasingly unacceptable behaviour and rulings. They are bloody clueless and seem to delight on really digging the knife in to our club and players. They have been guilty countless times of punishing one player a certain way, yet [...]

Rio MERKED Liverpool’s Torres

Rio MERKED Liverpool’s Torres

Fernando Torres got kicked off the park against United, at Old Trafford and Anfield, if you ask any scouser. He didn’t bottle it against United and our defence weren’t too good for him. He simply was cheated out of a good performance. It’s Sunday, kick back and relax, and check out a couple of videos… [...]
