Ferdinand’s dignified silence in the face of Hodgson’s “total lack of respect”

Rio Ferdinand John Terry

On the Thames this past Sunday more than 1,000 boats, canoes and ships followed the Queen’s gold-adorned barge from Battersea to Tower Bridge in the first mass flotilla on London’s artery for more than 300 years. The outpouring of national pride and ubiquitous presence of the Union Flag, so infrequently displayed on these shores, was […]

Blatter enters, and then fuels, race debate

Sepp Blatter, FIFA a senile deluded old fool

Race, it seems, is top of the editorial agenda after (insert obligatory ‘alleged’ here) incidents involving Luis Suarez and John Terry in the past month. Each is seemingly a sad indictment of the English game, where racism it appears, still thrives. Suarez, claims Patrice Evra, called the defender a “n*gger” at “least ten times” during Manchester United’s visit to Anfield in September. Meanwhile, […]

Poll: Rio right for England job?

The king is dead; long live the king. Rio Ferdinand is the new England captain following manager Fabio Capello’s decision to sack John Terry this afternoon. Terry, caught cheating on his wife for the umpteenth time, found his position ‘untenable’ – to abuse the much overused cliché. Fabio appointed Ferdinand with immediate effect and Steven […]

The case for captain Rooney

In the wake of the John Terry sex scandal many have called for a leadership change at international level. Far be it for Rant to pass judgment on Terry’s extra-curricular activities – the Chelsea captain has always been an odious toerag anyway – but now is the time for Wayne Rooney to take the responsibility […]

The day Terry went a Bridge too far

Wayne Bridge and Vanessa Perroncel

John Terry may wish to look away after a high court today lifted a so-called super-injunction that banned publication of lurid sex secrets.
