Video: Arsenal make former Man United skipper shame himself

Arsenal snatched a late equaliser against Manchester United yesterday afternoon, giving our rivals the lead for long enough for Rio Ferdinand to make himself look stupid.

The Red Devils took the lead through a 68th minute Juan Mata goal, and the former England and Manchester United star took to Twitter to boast the lead, only to be disgusted at the equaliser which followed.

Olivier Giroud nodded home from a delightful Oxlade-Chamberlain cross, after the pair were both brought onto the field late into the game, ultimately resulting in the match ending in a draw.

The equaliser came late enough for the home side to have led for enough time for Rio to make a fool of himself. You would think a former professional footballer would recall that a match isn’t over until the referee blows his whistle after 90 minutes plus injury time wouldn’t you?

This post evidently backfired and he should feel like he put a jinx on his own side, and he may think twice before posting such a premature celebration.

Arsenal fans will not have been overjoyed with the result having come into the match with the much better form, but considering the performance, we will most definitely feel the happier of the two sides with the draw.

Will Rio learn from his nonsense today? Really wish we could have been able to rub a win in his face instead of just the draw…

  1. The same Rio Ferdinand that blasted our players for posting celebratory selfies after one of our big wins labelling it premature? At this point, I hope all Arsenal fans slating our performance in the name of preaching objectivity choke on it, they echo the stupid assessments of dimwitted folk like Ferdinand, Neville, Owen and the like, from the irony of his premature celebratory tweet as captured above and how he tore into our players for celebrating after we ACTUALLY won, does he still sound objective to you. Supporters carry their teams through rough patches but us? No, we prefer slating our team pre-emptively so the dimwitted playground bullies are not upset at us. How many times have we “played like champions” throughout a game only to be sucker punched in the closing moments? Give me a bad performance and a lucky point against a bogey team and a bogey manager any day.

  2. Cheered me right up. It was funny the way he said sit back down Arsenal fans. It’s good seeing pundits ex players caring about the big games and not worrying about being impartial.
