John Terry Race Row: Is Frank Lampard Is Too Decent And Honest To Be England Captain

by | 14th, November 2011

TO the England team conference at The Grove hotel before the England v Sweden match. All hacks are banned from asking the Chelsea captain about the ongoing investigation into allegations of racism. Terry denies the accusations which are being investigated by the FA and police.

But two journalists contrive to weave the matter into their questions. They will take one for the press pack. They drew the short straws and will ask the questions every journalist in the room wants answered.

The pick of the bunch is, “John I’ve known you for years – you’re not a racist are you?”

The FA’s press officer stops Terry from responding to Nick and Dan’s posers. He wants to talk only about football.

Meanwhile, Anorak has one question for the FA: Is Frank Lampard, who captained England to win over World Champions Spain, in which he scored the game’s only goal, considered too decent, hard-working, intelligent, responsible, likeable, educated, erudite and decent to manage England. Or is it all about JT and Rio?

As one hack asks:

“Rio and you have formed a duopoly if you like”

JT scratches his head. The rest of us shake ours…
