Rio: No Divine Right To Beat Anyone

Rio: No Divine Right To Beat Anyone

Following United’s Champions League defeat against Real Madrid, thanks to the incorrect red card that was shown to Nani, we’ve looked to struggle on the pitch. First came the FA Cup game against Chelsea when we went 2-0 up before getting battered in the second half and were lucky to escape with a draw. Then [...]

England Fans Reported For Racist Chants About Rio… But Was It Racist?

England Fans Reported For Racist Chants About Rio… But Was It Racist?

Following Rio Ferdinand’s withdrawal from the England squad, this country has shown a bizarre overreaction, both in the media and by fans. Rio’s back troubles meant he went through a phase of playing a handful of games of season but over the past couple of years the medical team at United has managed to keep [...]

Time For Rio To Turn Hodgson Down? In-depth Look At His England Past

Time For Rio To Turn Hodgson Down? In-depth Look At His England Past

Sir Alex Ferguson has regularly been accused of trying to pull his players from International games so that they are in peak condition for the club, but he has long denied this and instead claimed he was happy to see his players representing their countries.

RoM’s CoM – February

RoM’s CoM – February

This is the second in a monthly column that is fast becoming my favourite to write. The first one had mixed reviews with people criticising the language and style in which it was written. Apparently it had too much swearing in it which is odd considering the title of this column is “Cunt of the [...]

Fergie: Rio Will Sign Before The End Of The Season

Fergie: Rio Will Sign Before The End Of The Season

A week before winning the Champions League in Moscow, Rio Ferdinand signed a five year contract with United. With Nemanja Vidic, he formed the best defensive partnership in Europe that season and it was great to see him commit his long term future to the club. Ferdinand turns 35-years-old later this year and his contract [...]

Rio: Ronaldo Is On A Different Level To Bale

Rio: Ronaldo Is On A Different Level To Bale

Following Gareth Bale’s impressive season for Tottenham Hotspur, some sections of the press have compared the Welshman to Cristiano Ronaldo. When Ronaldo was a year younger than Bale he was tearing apart teams in England and on the continent in that incredible 2007-2008 season. He scored 42 goals in 47 games and was the most [...]

Giggs: England’s Rio Loss Is Our Gain

Giggs: England’s Rio Loss Is Our Gain

Rio Ferdinand put in another brilliant performance for Manchester United this week in our 1-1 draw against Real Madrid. The game comes following yet another snub from Roy Hodgson when England faced Brazil at Wembley. Hodgson has laughably claimed that Rio’s omission is purely down to “footballing reasons”, not the fact that John Terry racially [...]

Rio: The Fans Still Sing Ronaldo’s Name

Ahead of Wednesday night’s game against Real Madrid, Rio Ferdinand has sung the praises of his former team mate Cristiano Ronaldo. “It’s obviously going to be an emotional night for Ronaldo and a great night for him too,” said Ferdinand. “But hopefully it gets too emotional for him. We’ve had a few texts, but when [...]

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. With the injuries he’s suffered over recent seasons, you could [...]

Rio – A bit of a prat but deserves respect

Rio – A bit of a prat but deserves respect

Rio Ferdinand has been a Manchester United player for over ten years, but unlike other players who have given the majority of their career to the club, he still splits opinion amongst the fans. We can address all the reasons for and against Rio’s popularity as we go along, but the turning point for most [...]

Giggs: I Got Hit By Chelsea Fans

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. With quarter of an hour remaining, Javier Hernandez scored the winning goal. Our Mexican isn’t very popular with Chelsea fans because of [...]

Giggs: Rio Entitled To Celebrate

Following Manchester United’s injury time win over Manchester City, Rio Ferdinand was struck in the face by a coin. Whilst most people were united in their condemnation of this fan, some suggested that Rio deserved it for provoking the City fans.

Shock! Ashley Cole’s family is scum too!

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. It doesn’t seem to matter how often we do it though, it feels fucking fantastic every single time. That realisation, a second or so before the ball [...]
