United - Rio Out for First Month of Season!

Bad news from the tour of North America!

Sir Alex Ferguson today confirmed that Rio Ferdinand will miss the opening month of the season.

Rio, who injured knee ligaments prior to the start of the 2010 World Cup, in South Africa, hasn`t recovered as quickly as the club would have hoped and his knee ligament damage is a huge blow to our early season hopes of getting off to a flyer.

Sir Alex will now have to choose who will fill in for Rio alongside Nemanja Vidic.

Will he go for Wes Brown, will it be Chris Smalling or will Jonny Evans get the nod?

What a crock he really is - and with you lot being broke and having no money for replacements - mid table at best this year.

Actually Willy, they'll probably be better off without Ferdinand - his best days are ong gone and he's lost a yard of pace recently - they should stick with Evans, at least he can play more than two matches in a row without breaking down.

Wow willy you really are retarded. Look up how much we've spent since being in debt (which we have been for a very long time now) to understand that if Fergie wants someone the money is always given to him to buy them. Secondly if we come mid-table that must mean relegation.

You said the word relegartion first - not being a noisy neighbour, I was generous and said mid-table. Let us know if you want a loan.

Sorry i forgot to mention 'for you'. If we come mid-table that must mean relegation for you.

I agree with FCB. We have actually looked stronger with Evans and Vidic at the back in stead of Ferdinand and one of the two and Ferdinand best days are almost certainly long gone.

Unfortunately for you Khoder, I suspect Rio will start each and every time he's fit. I know fergie is meant to have a ruthless streak, but rio is now England captain and has been a mainstay of your defence for so long (not to mention a better defender than Evans) that it will be difficult not to play him. Look on the bright side though - now he is England Captain he'll get away with absolute murder on the pitch (ala John Terry) so a few fouls due to lack of pace will almost certainly go unpunished.

Rio, like Hargo is on his last legs and thank goodness we have a very capable replacement in Evans
