I was thinking about how the FA treats chelsea and I came up with a few sad facts. I think that JT should use as part of his defence that the FA has a baised against chelsea and are trying to stop him playing for the club he loves.
1: Dispite Chelsea forming the backbone of the England team with JT, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and Joe Cole none of these players have ever been given the frespect of the FA. For example Shearer, Gerrard, Ferdinand and Rooneys court cases/abuse of fans/drugs were all ignore by the FA while they went for JT like a dog on heat.
2: England managers and the FA have never stood up for JT, Ashley, Frank or Joe Cole. Joe Cole was dropped for many matches even though his replacement (downing) was much worse.
3: Ashley Cole who is one of the most capped and best England players has never been considered or offered the captain's role. The FA blame his personal life but he hasnt done anything worse than Gerrard or Ferdinand. Ashley Cole even mentioned this on twitter.
4: Chelsea has never prevented players playing for England or claimed that players were injured like Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal or Spurs. JT has put his body on the line more than one for his country.
5: Chelsea players (until JT) have never retired early from England duty. JT, Lamps, Joe Cole and Ashley have always been willing to take the call even when they have been insulted or played in the wrong positions. Instead the FA keep begging Manchester United players to play again (such as Scholes and Carrick) who retired or decided they didnt want to play.
I dont know how other chelsea fans feel but I for one wont be going to any more England matches or buying any other England shirts. And I think I'll be supporting David Luiz's Brazil at the next world cup
