'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Stupid Rio Apologises

Rio Ferdinand was visibly frustrated after our 2-1 defeat at Chelsea: he got into a brawl with Mikel and on the way to the dressing room, he kicked a Chelsea steward.

The lady just stood there when Rio attempted to kick the wall in anger and hit her instead...

'I kicked the wall in frustration at the result, just as I have done in the past. Unfortunately a lady was stood there and I accidentally brushed her with my foot.

'I went back to make sure she was okay and apologised profusely. To her credit, she laughed it off and was very understanding. She said she wasn't hurt.

'I have arranged for a bouquet of flowers to be sent to her.'


It's lucky she had the good grace and good humour. I know it was only accidental and all that but Rio: WATCH YOUR BLOODY FEET! No matter how frustrated you are.

Fan of Blues
Classy fellow that Ferdinand!!
Rocky7
she could've acted hurt and probably win a lawsuit.
carefreeblue
Classy ? You must be deranged. All through the match he was trying to brow-beat the Ref. No decision that did not go ManU's way was Ok with him. He should have been sent off if the same rules that applied to Mascherano applied to him. And to top it all he kicks a steward ! England captain ? What a laugh !
ZeeNut
ignore zeenut, he/she/it is a bandwagon fan, just discovering chelsea in the last few weeks. as for rio, yes it was silly but come on, it is only one little blemish on an already fantastic season. why he wasnt in the pPFA player of the yeart list and gerrard was is baffling.
united4life
Zeenut ..... I don't think I have ever posted something on the network that has been more sarcastic. Rio Ferdinand, despite being a fantastic player is the epitomy of not only everything that is wrong with football, but society in general.
Rocky7
i like how he got Mikel all scared ha ha. rio for captain.
rooneyisgod
kudos to that lady steward... as carefree mentioned she could easily filed a lawsuit and trust me should this happen in the State Rio will digging in his purse for bail money aite now :(
Cretivo
Come on, it's not as bad as that nasty Frenchman Gallas kicking an advertising hoarding, Gallas' being a foreigner made that incident much more worthy of attention.
Little Dutch
lol Rio is everything that is wrong with football and society? No one here has ever been in a fight or had their temper get the best of them? Its only in human nature, get over it people.
Paulinho
Exellent role-model for the youth...skipper of the National team? Surely you´re havin a larf...
Blue is the colour
A model professional for all to see!
Adilson
Capello cant resist... 'Rio de Jeneral'
Cretivo
The F A should stick the boot in further and ban him...
Tiny T
Very Sorry, Rocky7. Didn't realise you were being sarcastic. As sarcasm, that was hilarious. As for United4Life , the quicker you ditch ManU & convert to Chelsea, the better. I can see you Sad4Life if you continue supporting these chokers.
ZeeNut
Cretivo, Rio De Jeneral , that's a real sense of humour ... lol .
ZeeNut
Pressure getting to Man U?

ZeeNut,following a team is something you are born into or choose to do at a very young age.It's not something you decide in your late teens or early 20's when some Big Russian Crook arrives with a bank full of Ruebles.I was at the Bridge on Saturday,I very much doubt you were.But then again Real Madrid are after winning two in a row in Spain so I'm sure you'll be "supporting" them next year.Now **** off back the I'll jump on the F**king bandwagon vital page with all your Chelski fans from all over the world who never heard of them until they actually won something!!!
java
No different to you lot who live everywhere but Manchester
Tiny T
i like the fact everyoen makes out terry is some saint....rascist, arrogant, cocky....just a few of his attributes. oh, and he laughed at 9/11 victims, now THAT's the guy i want captaining my country!
united4life
Neither should get it give it to Stevie G
Tiny T
Capello cant resists... it has to be 'Rio de Jeneral'
Cretivo
rooneyisgod, you're very quiet, after what man ure were going to do chelsea, having trouble getting that foot out of your big mouth or having bigger trouble wiping all that egg over your ugly boat!!!
springy
if only she would act like ronaldo, fall down and screaming like micheal jackson, we might see a freekick at the the hall way. or maybe a yellow card.......
imdccu
im sure ive made my fair share of comments after then game spingboard so maybe you should be on your way to specsavers. who are you anyway springy seeing your name is a first for me.
rooneyisgod
Springy signed for the ruebles rooney!!!
java
imdccu your football knowledge overwhelmes me.I'm also trying to figure out why you have to use michael jackson and in another thread akon as references.I'll take a wild guess why you're on here.I'm guessing you're American and your baseball team aren't doing too well at the moment and some of your friends are starting to follow "soccer".You must be a chelski fan...well, it's trendy these days.
