Take Notice Of Your Own Words Rio!

Take Notice Of Your Own Words Rio!

From Vital England:

Rio Ferdinand has voiced his opinion that no player is 'guaranteed' a place in Fabio Capello's side, or even the squad for that matter.

This is right, no player should ever be assured of a place even if some are usually 'closer' to this than others - but with this almost 'unwritten place' sometimes secured complacency can set in, and when this sets in this is when you have problems!

Capello is no respecter of reputations, if you are not performing he will have no qualms against overlooking you, nor will he have any problem pointing the finger at you, again rightly so.

In spite of this the chances are that Ferdinand is an almost 'dead cert' to go to South Africa, but he is one of these players that has been known to show a distinct level of complacency over the years for club and country so he might want to take heed of his own advice, as it could well be him missing out if he does not.

FU - Ever heard of free internet feeds? There are a load of them about, and I'll bet even a few manure fans managed to find one to watch the game. Oh, and Ferdinand really has lost the plot. If you thought his mistake in the derby was bad, you should have seen his howler against Ukraine. Rumour has it that he has a degenerative ba ck injury and won't be getting any better ever. Guess fergie will have to spend some of the winker money in January after all. Assuming the banks will lend the glazers some of it back of course!

More quality stuff from NotoriousRedDevil, your contributions are truely priceless and show exactly why most people can't stand United supporters!

Thats it lets all focus on Ferdinand lets just completely forget the other 9 players on the pitch, I mean Ashley Cole completely fluffed up, but who cares? No-one even really looked like they wanted to win they all looked like they wanted to go home but hey, lets forget it because Rio made a mistake so now we can all spend our spare time writing on VMU mocking him. And just to remind me, how many City players were on the pitch?
One United 92

didnt watch it NotoriousRedDevil, im not 'mug enough' to pay for a game i shouldnt have to pay to watch...
rio sets himself up for this kind of thing, he spoke a matter of hours before about not letting complacency slip into your game, and what does he do...sorry, but i just had to come on here and do a 'told you so' comment - manyoo fans are quick enough to do this arent they :-)

Rio was positively terrible, and has been in the Prem too - let's hope he stays in your squad.
11/10/2009 17:09:00
Thats what I like to see pompeyrug, stand up for yourself and don't let them walk all over you!
