Just What I Did NOT Want To Hear… Rio And Cole

Rio Ferdinand is a player I was happy to slate a few years back. He seemed to represent too many of the bad things about football and I felt little to no affiliation with him. Sure, he played for United and was a good enough defender, but his attitude was all wrong.

My opinion has changed massively over the past few years though, with Rio clearly growing up and giving a better account of himself.

Until now.

Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole are executive producers for a gangsta movie starring Danny Dyer. You could not make this shit up!

Rapper 50 Cent also plays a part, with the plot hanging around Dyer’s character trying to get his hands on £100,000 to repay loan shark Fiddy.

Filming has alread begun in Manchester and London.

Oh dear God.

    What a legend! He knows it’s gonna flop but if there’s any chance he’ll star in it i’ll go watch it even if I do think most of rap sucks and 50 cent is lame, despite being shot 9 times and surviving? (‘Lucky mother flipper’ comes to mind, how many people can claim that, it’s the only thing I admire about him and he only survived due to an inept hitman and alot of luck). I wish Rio the best of luck! I don’t see how this damages his reputation at all, sure Cole is a bell but this is just a hobby i’m guessing.

    I’m not from England so this doesn’t bother me as i don’t know who the hell danny dyer is anyway. It just seems to me like these guys are massive corporations that have to spend some of those huge wages or they’ll just get taxed to shit, at least that’s how it works over here all the athletes and business gangstaz start record labels first then move to the movies.They are cool to be around, the chicks are ultra hot and dig the guy making the decisions, and If it sucks and bombs you can write off the loss on you’re taxes and still make money off it

    Think he could do with a chat with Berba if he is at a loss with what to do with his loose change…

  8. Failsworth Devil says:

    Wonder if Rio gets to give it Cheryl up da mucka…and i wonder if Ashely Cole is the “Gangsters Runt” that always gets picked on…

  9. DeBrabs says:

    Who cares? it doesnt make him a worse player, a worse captain or a worse representative for United….
    The only thing that really bothers me about it is that he’s buddied up with that horrible little rent boy twat

  10. Bob Koh says:

    When Chelsea comes to OT on Jan 10th ’09, Rio & Cashley could be discussing their movie production on the pitch!

  11. jamos9 says:

    Judge it after the film!! We’re all different and from contrasting backgrounds and enjoy different things in life, it’s his money to waste or profit from so good luck to the fella. He does good things accross the pond in Africa and backs Gun Knife amnesty’s so he’s not exactly a bad person is he?

  12. SteRDLK says:

    jamos, America is across the pond, Africa would be across two ponds with a very big island in the middle.

    50 Cent never got shot nine times, it’s just some bull to give him an image

    As long as Rio isn’t in this film to make a complete embarrassment of himself, I won’t be too fussed

  13. ben says:

    Hate to tell you this, but Rio can do whatever the fuck he wants with his money/spare time.

  14. Jas Rai says:

    fuckin idiots

  15. King Eric says:

  16. Red-Manc says:

    But on a serious note, ashley cole is twat.

  17. Gary says:
