Rio admits being drunk playing for West Ham
Was all over the place that game.

“I was at West Ham and I was in the squad and did not get changed, so went up to the bar and had three brandy and cokes,” Ferdinand told The Mo Gilligan Podcast. “Then the kit man came and said ‘you’ve got to get changed’... as I had a brandy and coke in my hand.

“So I was like, oh. I put it down and have had three brandy and cokes and need to go play at Highbury. What’s going on?

“My first appearance at Highbury; I was 17, 18. So I went downstairs and was asked, ‘Are you alright?’ - I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m fine’ and I was right, I’m buzzing!

“Next thing, Paulo Futre walked out as he left because he wasn’t No.10. He looked at the numbers saw he wasn’t No.10 and walked out.

“[West Ham manager] Harry Redknapp was like, ‘We’ll sort it out next week, Paulo, we’ll change it, we’ll sort it.’

“Paulo just got in a taxi and went home. He left Highbury before a ball had been kicked.

"So I was brought down into the squad and then I came on. I was on the bench thinking please don’t bring me on. Three brandy and cokes, I can’t come on this pitch. I can’t come on and make an example of myself.

“So I went on for about 15 minutes.”

West Ham were beaten 2-0, with Ferdinand entering the play with the Hammers already two behind.

Can’t be too hard on Rio, I’ve invariably turned up for West Ham games pissed over the years.

Was in the home end for that game. Scorching hot day iirc and also the day of the first V Festival which I went to on the Sunday.

Not surprising we lost with Steve Jones starting up front!

I bet most footballers are lightweights. Despite the obvious exceptions I’d be surprised if many of them drank much

Re: Rio admits being drunk playing for West Ham
I'm more shocked that he's admitting to being drunk after just 3 brandy and cokes, possibly less if he didn't get to finish the 3rd. Not sure what stage of the game he started drinking but they may not even have kicked in by the time he went on the pitch.

I normally got drunk before we played arsenal. Especially if I was not on the transgender.

I never implied that, those are your words. I clearly referred to Rio having an abundance of Coca Cola, he admitted he had three in a short space of time! Rio referred to having a brandy and coke in his hand? So I can see how the confusion arose, besides everyone knows professional players take random drug tests and wouldn't risk their career.

Re: Rio admits being drunk playing for West Ham
Never taken/taken to Rio Ferdinand.
Not as a Player.. Blinding player. He's deffo not WHU
Hes 100% MANC now for sure.
I also believe he was one of the leading lights in undermining David Moyes when he took the Job following taggert's retirement.
Slippery cunt.. Don't like him

Re: Rio admits being Coked up and drunk playing for West Ham
I'm surprised anyone can reckon they remember his performance in that game, given he came on with three minutes to go.

Re: Rio admits being drunk playing for West Ham
Seem to remember Phil Parkes liked a touch of brandy before the game. Seem to remember one story I think on the flight to a tour John Lyall told Phil he wouldn't be playing in the first game so Parksey had a bit too much to drink on the flight. As a "punishment" Lyall played him in the game and he had a bit of a mare letting in an easy one. Lyall asked how he conceded so easily at half time, knowing full well why, and Parkes apparently answered "well I did try diving for two of the balls out of the three I could see!"

Re: Rio admits being drunk playing for West Ham
Greaves was an alcoholic when he played for us so was probably drunk most games.

Players would sometimes have a nip of brandy before they went out or at half time in the OLDEN days so Rio should stop being a big girls blouse.

Sir Alf 7:05 Tue Jan 5
Re: Rio admits being drunk playing for West Ham
Well if he was then we need more players to admit it,

Trouble is 60 years of watching West Ham, I can list 50 - 100 players who I thought must be drunk they were that bad.

I will start the bidding with 3...
Steve Walford ( 1985/86 year exception - he was on something else that year as he was excellent)
Kovac
Tommy Mcqueen

I'm more converned that
J.Riddle thinks is clever,funny,intelligent and a good thing to put that he was Coked up in the headline .
Rio should sue and so should West Ham and Arsenal.

Re: Rio admits being drunk playing for West Ham
Reckon that's a load of cock and bull.
Futre was an absolute waste of space who came to us on a free (Bosman) started 4 game and came on in another 5 then retired.

No doubt there was a backhander in it for he who shall not be named.

Thank heavens for people like you Syders. Great to see someone who is proper woke and a believer in cancel culture. ;-)

Re: Rio admits being Coked up and drunk playing for West Ham
Recall the story was that Moncur swapped to shirt 16 for the next game & let Futre have 10.
In exchange for a free week in his villa in Portugal
