JT Apology For Giving A S***

Oh dear, it appears Mr Capello is none too happy with our skipper after his impromptu press conference the other night. You see whilst Terry no doubt saw it as a bit of a battle cry ahead of our ‘must win game’ against Slovenia, rather than standing behind their former leader, it looks as if the ‘troops’ have been left scuffing their heels in the dirt awkwardly and whistling away in an effort not to hear his words – because they’re not interested. And neither is the England boss quite frankly.

Nope, Mr no-nonsense Capello is ever so slightly pissed off that the player he’d already stripped of his captaincy because he’d slept with a team-mates missus, ex-missus, mother of child, gold-digger, someone his former team-mate impregnated once upon a time, should care enough about England’s shoddy World Cup campaign so far, to dare say so. I mean, how outrageous that an England player should actually give enough of a shit eh?

Ok, so if something needs to be said it is customary for it to come from the captain, but the captain isn’t around and his stand in doesn’t appear to care that much about his club these days, nevermind his country. And yes, maybe Frank Lampard should have stepped in and reminded JT it probably isn’t his place these days but even he, in all honesty, doesn’t show half as much conviction in an England shirt as he does wearing Chelsea colours.

Whatever, JT obviously felt he had to do something. And right or wrong, poor choice of delivery or not, somebody needed to do something. Capello’s tactics and team selection haven’t worked and yet even with us staring a World Cup exit in the face, he didn’t look like doing anything about it. So whilst he might be happy to sit back nonchalantly, still giving the players five minutes of mental preparation and still leaving players ;like Joe Cole on the bench whilst anyone ineffectual who didn’t even merit playing time for Chelsea, much less sub appearances, get a game.

However, in defence of his questionable management and what he considers to be John Terry’s questionable reaction, Capello stated “I spoke with some players but only John Terry said this. No one speak with me about the problems. My door is open always and if you want to speak with me, you can speak with me. Every time we have a meeting I ask the captain, problems? You want to say something? Never. I read yesterday that John Terry said this, and I don’t understand why he don’t speak with me every time. I think he’s more disappointed some players because when you speak you have to speak privately, not with you (the media). This is the big mistake, this is a very big mistake. It is not a revolution, it is one mistake from one player. But I hope sometimes from the big mistake comes a big performance.”

In response, the Chelsea captain (a little more exclusively this time) has had a quieter word with the press to put the record straight, stating “I went into yesterday’s press conference with the intention of being honest. I was asked a question about Joe Cole and maybe I went too far. But it was never my intention to upset the manager or the players and if I did upset anyone, I apologise. I have told the manager he has my total support and I would like to stress that I don’t believe I have been a disruptive influence in the camp. I would now like to put this episode behind me and concentrate on trying to win what is a massive game for England. All I was trying to do was to say how important it is to me to try to win the World Cup. I just hope people at least appreciate that I have taken the time to call you and have asked you to report what I have to say in response.”

Whats the betting they’ll be talking through divorce lawyers next?



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