'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.

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 !

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.

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.

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.

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.

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,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!!!

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.
