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

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.

and ferdinand showed exactly that complacency i was talking about this afternoon for england in the ukraine...
pompeyrug
Well most other players took notice of his words but its a shame that he didn't!
Kevinho
So you two muppets paid a fiver to watch the game then. Mugs LOL. United>England
NotoriousRedDevil
Hoefully he includes himself in that
Tiny T
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!
Kevinho
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 :-)
pompeyrug
Rio was positively terrible, and has been in the Prem too - let's hope he stays in your squad.
BlueWolfie
Thats what I like to see pompeyrug, stand up for yourself and don't let them walk all over you!
Kevinho
Like I said don't care about England narrow minded bigoted fans. Most of you haven't even seen what happened and just want to blame Rio. From the Sunday papers I read Green got sent off. Did he have to take the other player out? Did he not have faith in the rest of his team mates to turn the result around? No. As always when England fail (which is pretty much always) its a United players fault. Take 2006 for example, don't blame the team for being bad, don't blame the fact that 2 apparently world class players can't take penalties but never seem to miss for their club (Gerrard and Lampard) it wasn't the other 4 Portuguese players who surrounded the ref. No it was all Ronaldos fault. Priceless thinking from ingurland fans who have use the tabloids as their bible.
NotoriousRedDevil
like i said i wasnt going to pay for something i should not have to so did not, but watched the highlights and rio was at fault for the goal - his error let the ukrainian in, granted green fouled him and 'probably' should have been quicker off his line, but it was a fact, rio made the error i do not give a rats arse if he is a manyoo player or pompey player, if he is at fault that is all that matters - rio made a rod for his own back and could not support it so he deserved the double go i had at him...
pompeyrug
Kevinho or is it 5th cloumn both sound the same to me. I'm the reason you hate United so much. Why thank you. Maybe I should send you a picture so you can make a voodo doll and stick pins it! The reason you hate is so much is because you give us aggro and expect us to say nothing the minute we do. You all respond exactly the same Its "WAAH WAAH WAAH he's arrogant, his contributions are priceless, he's not bowing down. Why isn't he bowing down! Where are my fellow people back me up from round the country because I can't do it myself." Thats what you sound like from where I'm standing. Heres an interesting fact the last time there weren't any United players in the England starting 11 in a competitive game they didn't make the Euros. If you 2 jokers or joker (can't tell anymore) want to start a group no Man United plaers to play for ingurland I'll join that.
NotoriousRedDevil
NRD - You don't even have your own jokes which means that you can't be funny - It was me who said that you and ForeverUnited always sound the same yet you now accuse me and FCB of being one and the same, Personally I couldn't really give a stuff about England matches or internationals in particular as they have limited appeal at best so as I can't be bothered I'll let you start your little no Man United players in the England team protest group if you wish.
Kevinho
Then why are you and your alter ego which showed up precisely when this crusade against this page started having a go at Rio when you don't care about England. What is your obsession with this page do you see me on vital cit-eh. No. Why are you obsessed with this page. Haven't heard a reasonable answer so far. I suggest you do one until you have a reasonable explanation. I don't see that happening though.
NotoriousRedDevil
Why did we turn up to have a pop at Rio? Well, let's see now.... The article I'm commenting on is, erm, About Rio! Why am I not talking about other players' mistakes (liek Ashley Cole for instance)? Because the article is about, erm RIO! If you want to talk about Ashley Cole (last time I looked he played for Chelsea) I'm more than happy to join in, but as this is allegedly a manure forum, thought I'd stick to talking about manure players, like, erm - - RIO! Or is that too complicated for you?

Inthe late 60's The Band (as in Dylan) wrote a song called Ferdinand The Imposter. Think it's on The Basement Tapes. Anyway, who would have thought that a bunch of Canadians could be so prescient!
kennyclementstache
Yes another black mark for the most overrated defender in the premier league. Lets make one thing clear, this performance IS NOT a once off as he's been rubbish all year. To make things worse he's been spouting off all year and commenting on other teams and players instead of concentrating on rectifing his own crappy form. One thing's for sure I'm glad he plays for United.
bluesnozza
Good point BN, another example of a rag attempting to divert attention away from his own shortcomings by blaming someone/thing else.
kennyclementstache
You can stick ur ******** ingurland up your arse
NotoriousRedDevil
Tell that to Wayne Rooney NRD. At least he can see the bigger picture, unlike the delusional manure fans.
fifthcolumnblue
We did tell it to him just before the World Cup 2006 and I'm sure we'll do the same thing towards the end of the season.
