That's ridiculous. He's suspended from the match. He should be suspended from everything to do with the match.
I think that people who genuinely like football but would have not been to fussy if Chelsea win might feel differently now. I wasnt that @rsed but this just does not sit well with me and now makes me want them to get spanked.

If I was a player, manager or fan if we won the CL final I wouldn't care one iota who collected the trophy!!!

This is a tough call frankly. I am not a Chelsea fan, so am speaking here as a neutral.

Did JT play in all the matches to the final?
Is this a team event?
How many players get the medals, the whole team or on the day players only?
Will anyone else be playing in that final who had a red during the competition?


I don't agree with him lifting the cup due to being banned, but he should be allowed to be there and collect any dues. As should all those yellow carded and unable to play. They all helped get the team where it is now. A bloke could have played his heart out in every match, aiding the victories, only to be injured/carded/ditched etc from the semis. He gets nothing from it all? I would have thought the squad as opposed to the team would get medals providing they took part. But no, Terry should not lift the cup, he lost that right.

Should Chelsea FC be renamed John Terry FC?

Why would the club even ask about the possibility of him lifting the cup?

If he had any class, he'd step away & let Lampard lift the cup (if they win of course).

This all smacks of John Terry craving the limelight as usual.

I doubt he'd even ask about it. I think it's more a case of other players over-estimating how much it matters, either to Terry or the fans. Personally, I don't give a shit who lifts it, as long as it's one of us.

Could not have put it better - totally agree.
Just heard Durham on the radio say, if they win it - what's he going to do with the photograph and when his kids ask him how he played in the game, what will he say?

Apparently Scholes and Keane (banned from the '99 final) said that they did not deserve their medals as only those who play or are subs deserve them.
Somehow I cannot see Mr Scumbag having that level of humility and class

He does manage the side though.

Made me laugh the other night when they were going to take Cahill off, and Terry instructed them to give him a few more minutes.

Lol, I must have missed that.

Did he need those extra few minutes to nob his wife, who was out the back?

Totally agree. Im no fan of Terry but all insults aside this will be a test for him. If he want to look just WEE bit less selfish and show that he isn't a total **** he will refuse this.

Funnily enough if it was an injured player i would almost understand it but as a result of a self inflicted suspension? No way.

I have no doubt that the reality will be Lampard and Terry both going and lifting an "ear each.

There was a spell on tuesday night when i almost liked and respected Chelsea. Normal service has been resumed.

It would never happen and for obvious reasons I don't ever wish for it to happen, but I'd LOVE for Terry to have a manager who won't put up with his crap, like a Ferguson.

Can you imagine Terry turning up for training to meet the new boss, not knowing who it is, ready to lay down the 'law of the dressing room' where he's engineered himself into a position of immovable power and he opens the door and sees Fergie sitting there behind a desk scowling at him.

Or someone similar to him.

100% correct.

Mr Chelsea?

He'd be out of the door before he could finish saying Mr Chelsea to Sir Alex Ferguson.

As Paul Ince found out at United all those years ago, there's only one guv'nor when Sir Alex Ferguson is around.

The thing is John Terry claims he is haunted by his penalty miss costing him a winners medal vs United but even if he gets one this time every time he looks at it he will know that through his own stupidity he's blown it again. Even if he gets to pick up the trophy this time it will be as meaningful as Kenyon going up with the team last time and Terry will know that whether he would admit it or not.

Maybe if he'd 'taken one for the team' like Ole did when he brought someone down to prevent a goal and literally carried on walking straight off the pitch barely pausing to see the red card then you could understand him feeling a touch hard done to. As it is he was just being a knob.

There are some obvious puns here involving "John Terry" "knob" and "taking one for the team" but I'm pretty tired just now so I'm going to trust you to have worked them all out already!!
