Rio Ferdinand Reveals Concerns Over Martin Odegaard And Believes Two Players Can’t Be Relied Upon

Rio Ferdinand believes that the pressure of becoming captain on Martin Odegaard will cause a drop in performance and also has a lack of confidence in their midfield options.  Arsenal opened the Premier League season with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Friday night. The Gunners were exceptional in the first half-hour and Gabriel Martinelli gave them the lead, however Palace still had their chances through Eze and Edouard. With the game coming to an end Saka’s cross was diverted into Palace’s goal by Marc Guehi to cement Arsenal’s victory. Rio Ferdinand on Vibe With Five YouTube show revealed that he was not impressed with Martin Odegaards performance after being named captain and has concerns over Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey. A fellow pundit on the show said: “I reckon you nailed ...

10 Times Fans Have Fell Out With Their Own Player

It’s not uncommon for fans to be abusive to rival players during games but for home supporters to be abusive towards their own player there must have been a falling out between the two. Here are 10 times fans have fallen out with their own player. 10. Rio Ferdinand – Man United It may come as a surprise to some that Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand received abuse from United fans but back in 2005 this was the case. Ferdinand was stalling on signing a new contract with the club whilst also flirting with a move to Chelsea. United fans weren’t best pleased with this and the center back was booed in all games during preseason. The abuse must have worked because Ferdinand signed the contract and the rest is history. 9. Fernando Torres – Chelsea Fernando Torres is one of the many forwards ...

REACTION: Man United Fans React To Disastrous Start After 2-1 Defeat Brighton

Manchester United lost 2-1 to Brighton in their opening game of the season. Erik ten Hag’s first game ended in defeat with not much joy for the United fans. The game didn’t get off to the best start when Pascal Groß scored in the 30th minute of the game. Nine minutes later, Groß scored again to double the misery on the Red Devils. All the talk pre-game was about Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese star has had a patchy pre-season, and Ten Hag opted to start him on the bench. Ronaldo came on early in the second half, and United pulled one back through Diogo Dalot. Despite the continued pressure by United, they failed to score another goal, and it’s left Ten Hag with more questions about his team. Fan Reaction Football fans aren’t shy of sharing their opinions, and Man United fans have done ju...

Harry Maguire spent last season taking the brunt of the United fan’s frustration. This season has started in the same fashion as last season for the club captain.
