Don't you feel really sorry for John Terry?

I imagine most Spurs fans were split last night. Do we support Manchester United and hope that they can win another European Cup fifty years after the Munich tragedy, or should we support our neighbours Chelsea and hope that they can bring European club football’s greatest prize to London for the first time? A tough decision that I expect all of us agonised long and hard over.

Unlike many cup finals, especially between these two sides, it proved to be an excellent spectacle for the neutral fan. We had plenty of drama that lasted right to the end, before the red half of Manchester finished up victorious.

So spare a thought for our friends from West London. Poor old John Terry, the former England captain. Such a model professional on and off the field. Never one to find himself in controversial situations. But alas, he fell over whilst taking a crucial penalty. He might be a big strong lad, but he couldn’t hold back the tears and I’m sure you all, like me, felt desperately sorry for him.


And then there was Drogba. Another tough, strong, talented player. In fact, I’d go as far as to describe him as a model professional as well. He uses his strong physique to ensure he always remains on his feet. He’s admired and respected by fans up and down the country for his fair play and good behaviour. So it was such a shame that the referee saw the need to send him off last night. I mean, it wasn’t as if he lost his cool in a major cup final and lashed out was it? If it wasn’t for this injustice, poor old JT wouldn’t have even needed to take a penalty, and so all the tears could have been avoided.



And finally, spare a thought for Nicolas Anelka. One of the happiest and friendliest players to have graced the Premier League. Yes he’s played for a lot of clubs, but he always leaves on good terms and so is revered throughout the land. Not only does Anelka now play for one of our close neighbours, but he’s also spent time at another earlier in his career. He might be French, but this guy is really London through and through. So for him to have his penalty saved by a Dutchman who lives up North was surely a travesty for all of London.

It was such a shame Chelsea lost last night. What with the creative, stylish football they’ve played all season, and the respect they show to officials and opponents alike, it struck me as such an injustice that they failed to win. Just spare a thought for poor old JT. He’s won various cups and titles over the last few years, captained England on a regular basis, but has now finished this season with nothing.

You sound real bitter mate. Im not a big fan of Chelsea but they deserved to win last night. I actually ended up liking them even more after that game. And even though most spurs fans will never admit it, I will say that a player like John Terry would be a dream to have in my team. He is a true leader and has more heart for his club then any spurs player every will. Show some respect.

I almost did feel for Terry...

Serves him and them right.

hahaha- brilliant!

Just goes to show, cheats never prosper.

Or should that be those that cheat more than the other lot don't prosper as much? Hmm, not quite so catchy though is it.

Drogba should be a figure of hate in West London today - I hope he moves to Italy.

You forgot about Ashley Cole. The noble, in no way money hungry model of fidelity. Shame to see him lose ANOTHER Big cup final.

Do I feel sorry for John Terry. No, not really. The wanker let his side down badly! How they could let the England captain take a penalty I'll never understand. It's well known that in England you're more of a hero if you miss a pen than if you score, which is why the English have such a terrible shoot-out record.
But I digress: for the arrogant Chelsea to finish the season with N-O-T-H-I-N-G is just soooo funny. To see John Terry sobbing on his manager's shoulder was, well, a scream!! They say nice guys come second, but that's obviously wrong - even Chelsea come second, three times in a season. Oh, how we laughed ...

David said...

I really disagree with you, even though I'm a spurs fan, Chelea were simply superb last nigt, they playd united off the park and deserved to win the game, so although I was neutral at the beginning, by the end I was supporting Chelsea. My only problem is that the fan will probably blame Avram Grant for the loss, somehow the defeat will be his fault, whilst the team playing well for most of the match after his half time team talk will be the players doing well in sspite of him. Bullsh*t if you ask me.

tommy said...

It would be cruel to say ya didnt feel at least a little bit sorry for the lad. No1 deserved to loose that final last night after it being so tight over the course of 120 mins. But if i were to give to any1 it would have bn UTD cause they were hungrier in ET.

But in the end all i can say is BOOHOO

show some respect? like they do? wasn't it cech telling everyone they would win the quadrupal? wasn't it them telling us they would win this ,that and the other after we beat them in the league cup final? last night was for the good of football and showed not only can you not buy class ,you cant buy european cups either.if you are a spurs fan you will have no sympathy for this souless,arrogant trophyless club

Chelski might have had more clearcut chances in the end last night, but they didnt deserve to win - I like to think of it as Karma for all their cheating, diving, time wasting, badgering of refs, complaining,etc etc throughout the season. It would have made me ill watching Drogba, Cashley Cole and Anelka celebrate if they had won with probably another Bolton-esque deflected goal, so great tounge-in-check article and lets also celebrate Spurs being London's most successful side this year (!).

GuySpur said...

Didn't feel sorry for them at all. They did well after a terrible first half where Man Utd could have wrapped it up but they still only scored with a massive dose of luck again. Their players did exactly the same as they always do and harassed the officials at every opportunity even when it was them that was doing the fouling and to be honest it made my night when Drogba got sent off. Hopefully that's the last we see of him. How hypocritical that Chelsea lost it when Man Utd didn't kick the ball back properly, they had done the same thing at least twice in the game!! Glad they ended up with nothing.

Nick Spurs said...

Brilliantly game - ranked up with the best for tension. Chelsea were not the better team. Man U ruled the first half and should have been 3-0 up, Chelsea scored a lucky goal but ruled the second half and hit the wood-work twice. Extra time was end to end and both had chances. Chelsea however did do the whole "hounding the ref and linesmen" tactic at every opportunity and this is one reason why i am glad Terry is not and should not return as England captain.

The game was not lost by Terry, it was lost by Drogba who would have taken the 5th penalty if he had not been so stupid and got himself sent off. Also Anelka is gutless for not taking one before Terry.

Wished nothing was different expect CHelsea took first penalty - this would have meant that Giggs would have scored the winning goal.

All in all i think Man U were the better face of the Premiership and worhty winners.

Feel sorry for Chavski? Is this a wind-up?

This is a team that has no idea about how to win and lose with dignity. The Drogba incident and the two 'broken' nose incidents clearly show the Chavski way. They are little more than an over-paid group of mercenaries with no class who try to bully their way to success. Fortunately they failed on all fronts this season. Their football is frequently devoid of style inspite of the hundreds of millions of pounds spent on the squad. It is dull, direct and cynical.

Terry is a media darling and hugely over-rated (Cavalho constantly bails him out) and Lampard also limited game which against the very best showns up. His goals in the EPL (many penalties mind) are a smoke screen. Besides all that knuckle kissing cr*p after scoring a penalty is enough to p*ss off a saint.

All in all congrats ManU and no I don't feel sorry for anyone connected to the Chavs.

personally i do not like chelsea. but i must admit that i did feel sorry for John Terry last night.

Had he missed the spot like all others, then that would be normal. but the slip made it all crazy.

both teams played well but god was wearing a red jersey last night.

hahaha. spurs fans are indeed the biggest wankers on the planet. A disgrace to London. Youre team is so shit that you only get joy when your rivals lose. Pathetic. I feel sad for you lot

Anonymous said...

Only thing that would of made me happier is if Terry had broke the leg he had slipped on. I have never known a player to be so overated. The only reason he makes tackles is because he is in the wrong position. A good defender is a defender you dont see! John Terry has had a good career due to the press liking him so much - im sure he has been paying them off!

It couldn't have happened to such a nice guy hey!

I would not want Terry in my team.Did you not see him spit a tevez while pretending to wipe his face after the sending off.That incident totally summed up terry and chelsea as a whole.

The papers are also reporting chelsea fans saluting hitler after the game obviously not realising abramovich is a jew.

Chelsea are a nothing club who got very lucky with the russian.I rate them the same as QPR as a club who also now have there own sugar daddy. Chelsea are not the big club there supporters think they are and the sooner the russian fucks off and chelsea sink bavk to the depths they belong the better.

As a gooner (yes, I read your blogs too!) I wanted Utd to lose more than I wanted the chavs to lose. However as the game progressed I came to my senses and changed my mind. Utd, as much as I hate them, have many admirable qualities and on the most part play attacking, entertaining football. They also aren't a shitty little club from Fulham who have a very rich sugar-daddy.

I enjoyed every second of Chelsea's pain, especially seeing Cole weeping after his 2nd CL final loss. Twat.

...and how are we supposed to feel sorry for poor old JT when all he did was miss a penalty? Shame, I'm sure this week's wage of £13ok will comfort him when he gets home.

It's good for football that Roman and his mercenaries weren't able to buy the one prize they most covet, even for over £500m!!

Comiserations to the 15 year old also rans, and congrats to the legendary football club who deserve a 3rd European cup.

Fantastic night!!!!

I remember a few weeks ago when the chavs beat Liverpool there was an article saying how the chavs were out celebrating in a club with Jemma Jameson and that Ledley King was in the background jealous of the chavs success and he was a loser. Well unlucky you arrogant motherfuckers...hopefully the russian is fed up and will fuck off and bankrupt you, I can't wait.

Also like to point out that Terry is a nasty piece of work. He showed his true colours when he racially abused Ledley King. The incident was played down but from the reaction of the black players there was no denying something racist was said.
