Another Ferdinand Injury... It's Depressing

Rio Ferdinand has developed into one of the most mature, reliable defenders this club ever had. Problem is that he's spending more time in the treatment room than on the pitch as persistent injuries are troubling him.

Rio looks likely to miss Sunday's derby because of a groin injury he picked up on international duty. This is hardly his first and it's getting more and more depressing.

'It is a concern for us and something we could have done without,' Fergie said, redefining understatement. Rio missed nine Premier League games in a row then returned to play at White Hart Lane last Saturday - but it looks like this one game was too much for his feeble body....

'He has one game back and picks up another injury when he really needs some games to get back to his maximum.'

'We don't need to make a decision right away but he really has to do something positive in training to give himself a chance. We hope he is there though. We want all our big players for this particular game.'

Hopefully he did, even though I trust Jonny Evans to do a fine job against an Adebayorless City.

Evans is great, Brown and O'Shea are OK, but maybe we should consider investing into another Centre Back, not Fullbacks who's secondary role is Centre Back. Just a thought, as Ferdinand's repetitive injury doesn't leave many proper Centre Backs.
