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

No Coming Back!

All those mutterings from the tabloid press about Rio`s return to top-form possibly earning him an England recall, seems a little wide of the mark.

In fact, although Roy Hodgson has older players in his thoughts, it would appear that Rio Ferdinand`s England career is over.

Following the recent excellent victory over Brazil, the current England manager seemed to lose his cool a little when pushed on the ongoing Rio situation, snapping back,

"It seems to me that every other day I have to answer questions about Rio."

"I don`t want to talk about him. I`m not prepared to talk about people who weren`t there when we`ve just beaten Brazil."


I`d say that settles that then, how about you?

It wouldn't bother me if there wasn't so many double standards involved. He wants to move on for Rio but would take Terry in a heartbeat. Lampard isn't guaranteed a starting place anymore due to his age but is still there to offer experience yet Ferdinand can't fulfil the same role in defence. Granted Rio is past his best but he's the sort of character that can only improve a squad and is still better than half the options out there, even if he's not starting he can use his experience to give advice to the other players (like he did with Smalling when playing city). All the same the fact that he isn't being picked for country benefits the club so there loss is our gain.
