Rio`s View on the Liverpool Draw!

Rio`s View on the Liverpool Draw!

Having made his comeback from injury, Rio Ferdinand had a game whereby he was involved in the thick of it.

In fact Rio, on another day could have seen red, after having been previously booked, for the trip on Charlie Adam that led to the Liverpool goal.

Rio though thought Adam made a meal of it, commenting immediately after the game,

'There was the slightest contact but not enough to make a 12 or 13 stone man fall over."

Probably the view of many United supporters.

But as for the result, Rio was more upbeat, adding,

'I'll take a point. They created a couple of chances but we controlled parts of the second half and played good football. Considering what we've gone through in the past couple of years [losing three times at Anfield in a row], it's not a bad result.'

Not sure I`ll agree with that, after all it is Liverpool is it not!

Ugh, Liverpool really deserved to win this one, you never played good football sorry guys but it's the truth. I don't think you actually improved your away form of last season, the only positive result you've had away from home until now has been Bolton, a Bolton team that everybody looks to be beating at the moment. You nearly drew at the Hawthorns and perhaps could of lost at Stoke. And today as well, you weren't good at all. Be careful, we Chelsea are slowly getting everything alright and City are looking to take advantage of any of your slip-ups. And also Tottenham are getting their form back.

FrLamp, it's too early to come to any conlcusions about form at all. We've only had 4 away games 2 of which we won the other two we drew, which isn't too bad. Now take into consideration the opposition, Liverpool at Anfield is always a hard game as is Stoke at the Britannia, we won't be the only ones to drop points. Today at Liverpool we can put down to a lack of first team players with all our game changing players on the bench. Away to Westbrom it was the start of the season where every team isn't quite at full fitness and sharpness levels. I think you'll find a lot of the teams we've dropped points against or nearly dropped points against are the same teams Chelsea have struggled against. Last season we 7 points in our away games against Liverpool, Bolton, Stoke and Westbrom this season we've got 8 points from these games. A slight improvement and it perhaps could've been more if Fergies selection v Liverpool was stronger or if the ref never awarded a freekick from what was a blatant dive.

Personally whilst it's a good point and Liverpool won't be giving many of them out this season at Anfield I really do believe we should've gone for all 3 and if we had played Nani, Rooney, Vidic and etc we would've got all 3.

Back to the subject, does Rio have anything to tweet about the antics of Nani, Chipolata, and Ronaldo in the past? I recall him saying the same things about Barca. How can anyone take Rhino-lip seriously? By the way, you all looked very smart in your black bomber jacket uniforms in the Annie Road. Well done.
