Respect to Rio

Respect to Rio

We`ll hold our hands up and make a bold statement!

It may not go down with a lot of you but we`ve come to it logically.

Rio, courtesy of his recent international record probably doesn`t deserve to be the England captain.

Right we`ve said it!

But, and this is a big but, we`re of the opinion that Fabio Capello has done himself no favours in the manner in which this whole saga has been played out.

Reports infer that Fabio hasn`t personally contacted Rio to explain the decision, this despite sitting within shouting distance of our man at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Therefore, although we`ve come clean and had our say, we`re as pleased as punch that Rio, having lost the captaincy (through injury) has had the decency to contact John Terry and offer his support, something a source close to Rio has revealed in the red-top publication this morning, when commenting,

"Rio felt it was only right he gave John a call and talked things over."

"He wished John all the best for Saturday and told him he believed he would lead the team to a win."

"John and Rio go back years and there is a mutual respect. Maybe Capello could learn a bit from them."


He certainly could!

I've said it before and I will say it again, Capello is a joke. He's a terrible manager who is so ignorant he genuinely believes the 4-4-1-1 system is the way forward for the England team (though leaving us exposed on numerous occassions and the players just didn't gel to it) and that playing the exact same team everygame will make us better. He wants to play Carroll with Rooney, does that remind anyone of the Heskey Rooney combo that lead to a seriously off-form under confident Rooney who soon became the scapegoat for a poor world cup whilst Capello let him fry, hey anything to protect his image though, eh? The man (if you can call him that) is a coward. He never will speak to player face to face or to reveal to them the good or bad news. What sort of manager can't face his own players? The sooner he's out of the England set-up the better, even if it means punt-up-to-Crouch Redknapp.

You don't get it do you? Rio is finished, plain and simple. Capello has relieved him of the captaincy because he clearly does not see him representing England again. He is aleady likely to be out for the rest of the season for you, is he not? Can anyone remember specifically when he was injured, and why that injury should keep him out for so long? Thought not. Ferdinand's injury problems, particularly his back, have caught up with him - expect an international retirement in the near future, and if you're lucky, he might limp on for another season or two, but he's finished.
