In photos – Chelsea 3 – Manchester United 3: John Terry is yesterday’s man

CHELSEA and Manchester United provided a thrilling 3-3 draw in the Premier League. Three goals down, United game back. Is there any football fan who does not admire United? Also, is there a football fan who does not think John Terry’s a weasel? The Chelsea captain did not play in this match. He was injured. He will play for Chelsea again. But Terry is on the slide. The smart money should be on his not playing for England at Euro 2012. The nation doesn’t need him. Not because he’s a scrote. This, after all, is the England team of Ashley Cole and Wayne Rooney. England does not need Terry because he’s not good enough.

What troubles us, though, is that the FA succumbed to media pressure for the Chelsea captain to be stripped of his England armband. Terry is not a lovely chap. But he is not guilty of racial abuse. He’s innocent unless proven otherwise. The FA did not rid Terry of the armband before the matter of his allegation of racially abusing QPR’s Anton Ferdinand was approved for a court date. When it was a football matter, they did nothing. And then, when the Crown Prosecution Service said Terry had a case to answer, the FA sacked him. No prejudicing of the case there, readers. None at all… Anyhow, the best thing about football is that it moves on fast. One minute you’re the England captain; the next minute you’re watching Euro 2012 on the telly. One minute you’re 3-0 up and cruising. The next it’s 3-3…
