Chelsea Injuries: Should We Be Risking JT?

Our injury list has steadily increased lately, first Ashley Cole, then Jose Bosingwa, then Ashley Cole again – who it turned out had just about dragged himself through the pain barrier to play against United anyway.

This week, we heard that not only had Didier Drogba had suffered slightly more than the bruised ribs we first suspected after Evans’ kung-fu kick, and he’ll be out for a while. Not only that but Frank Lampard fell foul of the dreaded international friendlies – or maybe even the travel arrangements, who knows because he didn’t make it past the first training session. And it seems our captain didn’t fare much better in training for the game against Brazil either because having blocked a shot from Jermain Jenas, he aggravated his Achilles. By all accounts, in usual JT style, he was still prepared to play although fortunately Fabio Capello chose not to risk him.

Initial reports suggested the Chelsea captain could be out for a couple of weeks, although Terry is hopeful that won’t be the case, saying “I left my leg out and blocked a shot the other day. It clipped my Achilles which is still bit tender. It was touch and go. I gave it a go and it just wasn’t right.  Will I be OK for next weekend? Fingers crossed. We will have to wait and see when I get back in the pool and start doing some work.”

Personally, I’d be happy to see him rested against Wolves rather than risking him ahead of Arsenal.



Blue is the colour is an honest insight to the World of Chelsea FC. Not always pretty, sometimes rather cynical, but always realistic.
