He is a United player :eyebrow:

When he played for Arsenal he was punished and kicked all over the place.

Now he is protected and it also means no big injury problems.

Nice words for the Fa too. :haha:

Quote:

“Wayne shouldn’t have to do anything for the FA. I keep telling him he’s too trusting. I told him ‘I don’t know why you do it with the FA’. They’ve not helped him one bit. Every time he does anything they punish him more than anyone in the game. He should be realising that.” – Sir Alex Ferguson tells Wayne Rooney he is being exploited by the FA.
In other words the fa should be being more leniant with Rooney, is what he's implying with the 'they've not helped him but instead punished him more than others' stuff. :shake:

Hope someone pulls him about the FACT there is now clear evidence that shows Nani having a look at Arbeloa before making that lunge. (puts paid to the 'didn't know he was there' crap.)

Brilliant words from Rafa. He is spot on when he tells the Journos to ask Fergie if they are brave enough. He was spot on in his alleged 'rant' in everything that he said. Love him or hate him, he is pretty spot on in what he says about the press and the FA bias. I don't think any journalist did ask Ferguson as there are no quotes in response from him

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand may face FA action after being involved in an altercation with Chelsea striker Fernando Torres during Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final.

Ferdinand appeared to trip the Spaniard before pushing him in the back in the 86th minute of the clash at Old Trafford.

The FA will look again at the footage before deciding what action, if any, to take but Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez refused to be drawn on the incident.

"I haven't seen the replay - you can see the replay," he said when asked for his response. "You have an advantage and can do it now."

Benitez also confirmed he had spoken to Torres about the matter but would not go into any details.

"I don't talk about things that happen on the pitch," he added.

Ferdinand needs to be charged and severely punished for that delibarate and blatant off the ball incident. For there to be any kind of integrity, dignity and credibility in this wretched, corrupt game people like this need to be brought to account. For a senior, experienced pro who aspires to be back in the national set-up, his behaviour in the last week has been downright disrespectful, juvenile, undignified, cynical etc.

Good to see you on here Dhav. :handshake:

Unsurprisingly Ferdinand won't be charged by the FA for clattering into Torres from behind on Sunday nowhere near the ball.

Just happens to coincide with strong rumours of him being recalled to the England squad.

Roboklopp 12-03-13 05:59 PM

The FA are always picking on Rooney mind. Terrible business.

dom9 12-03-13 05:59 PM

Was it really that bad? Really?

Kenneth 12-03-13 06:06 PM

Depends what that means. But it was enough to get a red during the game imo.

dom9 12-03-13 06:09 PM

I thought it was just a bit of silliness. No worse than Luis tweaking somebody's ear to get a reaction.

rudedog 12-03-13 06:33 PM

If you did it to someone in the street, you would be charged with assault. Should these things go completely unpunished just because they happen on a football pitch?

Muddled 12-03-13 06:34 PM

But would you get charged with attempted murder for kicking the ball at the head of someone in the street?

Depends if DBF knows the prosecution.

dom9 12-03-13 06:37 PM

Perhaps he should be arrested and charged with assault then. Among all the other assaults that occur during each game. That'll learn em.

I've seen red cards given for less, but personally, I think it should have been a yellow card.

If it had happened to a Liverpool player, I may feel differently about the whole thing - especially if it wasn't going to be dealt with, because I'm fickle.

It was a clear cut red card any day of the week. It isn't allowed to kick someone just to get a reaction or to have some fun.

If it was a Liverpool player, I'd have pissed myself laughing. Instead, I must take the moral high ground, shake my head, maybe my fists, and wail uncontrollably at the unfairness of it all.

I think Rio is an it, too. :handshake:

I can see the thinking behind it being a red card and if we look at historic red cards, there have been plenty for lashing out ... I'm just a fan of rough and tumble football and I think it's slowly getting phased out of the game.

Each to their own like.

There doesn't really need to be any moralising involved. It was what it was, an aggressive act away from the play that should have been punished with a red, you simply can't do that sort of thing. Agger on Nani, piss funny I agree, but still a red.

McDermotX 12-03-13 07:20 PM

The fact its off the ball for me is enough to warrant a red card. The seriousness of the 'assault' itself is largely irrelevant IMO.
It's a clear attempt to initiate retaliation from an opposing player, which would result in a red card for that player.

FA letting him away with it, just reaffirms their cowardice to make a stand against unsportsmanlike behavior.




Having said that......smacking the traitor is commendable behavior. :handshake:

Arn 14-03-13 04:55 PM

Surprise, surprise........or maybe not.

Rio Ferdinand is recalled to the England squad.

So the Chairman & Vice-Chairman are both pro-United - what a wonderfully democratic system the FA has!
And still no other Premier League club representative on the board I bet...

That works out about half a days wages for him. A touchline ban would have been more appropriate.

Manchester United appoint specialist to improve Old Trafford atmosphere
• Accoustic engineer will report to club at end of the season
• Move comes following complaints from United supporters

Manchester United are trying to crank up the atmosphere inside Old Trafford following complaints by supporters that the stadium is too quiet on matchdays, having appointed an acoustic engineer to assess the problem.

As revealed by the Manchester Evening News and confirmed by the club, a sound specialist will report back to club officials on the volume inside the ground after attending the Premier League game against Liverpool in January.

The engineer will attend further matches before the end of the season and then submit findings on how the atmosphere can be improved inside the 75,000-capacity venue.

A club source told the Manchester Evening News: "There were supporters in the Stretford End who thought they had made a lot of noise only for friends in different parts of the ground to say they couldn't hear them."

United, who play rivals Manchester City in the league on Monday, had previously attempted to set-up a dedicated singing section inside the stadium but those plans have been abandoned. A scheme to relocate away supporters from their current location has also been shelved, following a trial when Aston Villa played at Old Trafford last season.

Despite being the largest Premier League ground, Old Trafford has often been lambasted for having a poor atmosphere and the recent complaints came from fans in the more vocal Stretford End.

The former United midfielder Roy Keane famously criticised the noise in 2000. He said: "Away from home our fans are fantastic, I'd call them the hardcore fans. But at home they have a few drinks and probably the prawn sandwiches, and they don't realise what's going on out on the pitch."

Is this a late April Fool's joke? Maybe it'll be easier to just rename Old Trafford to "Theatre of Dreams - Literally". ;)

As for the quote "Away from home, specially in London, our fans are fantastic", the author missed out the bit in bold.

dizzycat 06-04-13 08:38 AM

That's the solution... Call in an acoustic engineer because your fans stuck

BobTheCharmer 06-04-13 09:05 AM

To be fair isn't it similar at anfield for the past 15 years, utd and European games aside?

In fact the atmosphere at most of the big teams is shit over here. Stoke and Portsmouth have loud fans but the former get lambasted for being morons. I think its because tickets are expensive which means a large percentage of fans at top teams are more interested in leg room, looking at their phones and making sure they have enough grub to shove down their throats. Singing is beneath them. The times we live in.
