Ferdinand`s Chance?

The red-top publication back pages are full of column inches relating to Rio Ferdinand.

It appears that John Terry`s self-imposed exile from international football has spawned rumours that Rio Ferdinand could be set to return to the international scene.

But, depending on which red-top you pick up depends on what viewpoint you get.

One infers that Rio is remarkably keen to resume an international career that was cut short by Roy Hodgson`s refusal to grant him a place in the Euro 2012 squad, whilst the other is quite reticent that there appears that there is very little chance of Rio returning, pointing out that Rio has had no contact from the England manager, Roy Hodgson, since he was axed for Euro 2012.

It also goes on to point out that a certain Ashley Cole is a long-standing member of the current squad and with Rio`s brother, Anton, refusing to shake Cole`s hand when Chelsea played Queens Park Rangers there could be an element of animosity at the heart of the England defence.

So what is the verdict folks, is Rio set for an England comeback or is he, at thirty-three years of age, one of the golden generation that didn`t match their ambition and have now been discarded?

Well with Vidic out again the last thing we need is for Ferdinand to be called up for international duty just to get injured in a pointless game where untested players should be given a chance. Back down to only 2 fit CB's and it's only the start of the season, you would think 5 would be enough but once again it proves otherwise and after 3 season (or is it 4 now) we still haven't learnt from it. We should really consider signing a talented young CB who can't demand first team action due to his age and inexperience but is capable of providing decent enough peroformances when called upon.
