John Terry: Will He or Won't He?


I feel so jealous that my fellow 'bloggers' can post goal action of their favourites from the weekend's action and 'appen from the last few weeks LOL LOL LOL!!

Anyway. Will he or won't he? Thats the question that is being debated and discussed on the varous Chelsea chat boards concerning our own Captain Marvel - JT - who had his face smashed in by the 'Lonesome Star' from Texas, Fulham's Clint Demspey in the West London derby on Saturday.

The FA announced today that they would not be taking any action against Dempsey, despite this incident being the second he has been involved inside a week. In Fulham's home game against Man City, he had a similar set to with City's Micah Richards.

Anyhow 'nuff of that. The matter being debated on the WWW - Should JT risk playing so soon even with a protective face mask? (Despite Chelsea's dismal run of form and with England's important Euro 2008 qualifiers on the horizon). Or should JT take a well-deserved rest and get his broken toe better as well as his face?

Opinion seems to be divided - equal yes and no. A top injury expert said today that JT can make the decision himself.

Personally I think if Carvalho suddenly becomes available then JT should rest. But JT is JT and as well as being Mr Chelsea he is also Mr England and an extremely hard man to keep down.

If the first team had a bad day at the office on Saturday, then the Academy had an even worse day. On Saturday morning they travelled across to East London to play West Ham and were soundly trounced 4-1.

West Ham scored first after 13 minutes and West Ham scored a further three goals within nine minutes of the second-half starting. The Academy's consolation goal came from schoolboy Frank Nouble, four minutes from time.


Sam Walker, Nana Ofori-Twumasi, Jeffrey Bruma, Jack Saville, Ben Gordon, Tom Taiwo (Nikki Ahamed), Jordan Hibbert (Daniel Philliskirk), Gael Kakuta, Jacob Mellis, Morten Nielsen (Frank Nouble), Adam Phillip.

The reserves are in action on Tuesday night in their own version of the West London derby when they travel to Fulham, the game kicks off at 7pm UK time and then on Wednesday night Chelsea return to the Mestalla for Champions League action against Valencia.
