My message to you is:

Stop bleating and crying you spoilt person.

Why should you be guaranteed 100 caps?

I've read a few articles on this - not seen anywhere that he's said he should be guaranteed a hundred caps, can you please let me have a link to relevant piece, cheers.

Not sure he 'shunned' being captain either.

From what I've read, he's said he wishes he was there, he's said he won't retire whilst he's still playing and will be available should any England manager need or wish to call upon him. What more exactly should he do?

If you want to get angry about this then maybe you should look towards Terry, after all we all know he's the reason Rio isn't there (and it wouldn't surprise me if he was not part of the reason for Micah Richards exclusion from the original squad)



"A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic."

"The ideal tyranny is that which is ignorantly self-administered by its victims. The most perfect slaves are, therefore, those which blissfully and unawaredly enslave themselves."

Not sure that article says he shunned it.

It does point to him saying he didn't want to be captain - and who could blame him after he was made captain then stripped of it so Terry could have it back - after he was surrounded by allegations of relationships with team mates partners, selling the captaincy etc. If anybody shunned anything it was Cappelo who shunned the player.

For what its worth I'm not sure I'd want our campaign riding on Ferdinand's recent patchy injury record or Terry's suspect hamstrings etc but I don't buy into this myth you seem bent on creating that he 'shunned' anybody, I quote from your link:

Quote:
However, in the interview , aired on BBC One on Saturday, 4 February, Ferdinand said he still wants to remain a part of the England team heading into Euro 2012.
"If I'm selected for the squad, then as usual I'll be delighted," he said.
"Playing for your country - being selected for your country - is a great achievement.
"I'll always feel privileged to be selected, so if that comes around again I'll happily meet up and give 100% as usual."

Still, be a shame to let the facts get in the way of a good rant I suppose.

nobody is having a rant so i am not sure where your getting that from ? watch the vid at the top of the page and he says he does not want to be england captain within the first two seconds of the interview ? your wrong so enjoy it !

To shun it he would have to be asked to be the captain - he wasn't.

I am well aware of what he said, I just interpret things with a balanced view, no agenda.

Didn't Ferguson say Ferdinand wouldn't be able to play 4 games in under 2 weeks?

I think he did, which is why I wouldn't want to be relying on him, especially as Terry's hamstring is suspect as well.

He's very upset because he had thoughts of being the first black player to gain 100 caps.

it seems very unlikely that he will now

He needs to get a life, there is no way he would have overtaken Ashley Cole who is now on 93 caps. [www.englandfootballonline.com]

By the sound of it the back four did alright without him last night.

I've read a lot of quotes from someone called 'Ferdinand Camp' these last couple of weeks. Who is he ? Why is he being quoted ? Can Rio not speak for himself ?

It's the bloke who speaks when the press have decided what the story is going to be and need "evidence" for it.

Rio Ferdinand is no more the fiery defender .He is not even a regular in man United . In the past he committed many blunders and as a result he was rested .

Some players think that playing for England is guaranteed as if it is their rights .

i have to congratulate the English manager to have discarded him . It should be for ever .
