Fergie: Rio Doesn’t Want To Leave

Rio Ferdinand’s contract is set to expire this summer and no agreement has been reached over an extension. As is always the case with our players over 30, he would only be given a one year deal, which obviously would be less appealing to Rio.

Giggs: I Got Hit By Chelsea Fans

Earlier this season, Manchester United beat Chelsea 3-2 at Stamford Bridge, with the blues reduced to nine men. United had gone 2-0 up early on only to see Chelsea claw two goals back.

Shock! Ashley Cole’s family is scum too!

Earlier this summer, the FA deemed that Ashley Cole lied to defend John Terry who was found guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand. In Cole’s first statement to the FA, he claimed he heard or saw Anton use a “B” word, which he suggested might have been “Bridge” as Anton said it whilst making a [...]

Players Shouldn’t Celebrate With Their Own Fans! Ever!

Players Shouldn’t Celebrate With Their Own Fans! Ever!

You would think that by now we would be used to it. Dramatic last gasp wins have been commonplace for Manchester United fans during Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign.

Rio: Fergie Showed Us League Table Before Newcastle Game

United started the season by losing to Everton away and Tottenham Hotspur at home. To have lost two games so early on was pretty damaging to our title hopes and with a difficult trip to St James Park, a ground we had lost at the season before, things didn’t look good. We were 3rd in [...]

Fergie Forgets Rio’s Contract Expiry

In May 2008, Rio Ferdinand signed a five year extension with the club ahead of captaining us to European Cup success against Chelsea in Moscow. He was 29-years-old then and at his peak. That contract expires in the summer and any chance of it being extended earlier have been ruled out by the repeated injury [...]

Why Fergie Was Wrong To Blast Rio

Why Fergie Was Wrong To Blast Rio

Sir Alex Ferguson has changed my life. Some of the best feelings I’ve ever experienced are a result of the brilliant teams he has built and the success he has inspired. Whilst I’m not blinded to his mistakes or personal flaws, it is rare that I would publicly criticise him. However, I think the handling [...]

Rio Is Better Than Them… But We Should Welcome Snub

In the summer, Michael Carrick wasn’t called up to the Euro 2012 squad because he had told the FA if he wasn’t going to play, there was no point in him going.

Rio: Rafael Will Be A Top Defender

Rio Ferdinand has today sung the praises of Rafael da Silva, who scored our equalising goal against Liverpool. Our right back has two goals in four games this season and his strengths certainly seem to lie in his attacking ability. However, Rio reckons he’s got the makings of a great defender. “Rafa is his own [...]
