So John Terry, Explain That One

So John Terry, Explain That One

Last week, Chelsea captain John Terry claimed Arsenal would come up short in the title race due to that lack of 'an English spine'.

The blue's centre back was ridiculed (on this site anyway) for his sweeping generalisation that English players seemed to offer more mental strength and 'backbone' to the sport based solely on the fact that they were born in England.

Well, last night, Chelsea and their English spine fell out of the title race a mere 24 hours after our own Premier League ambitions stuttered to a halt.

So not only were John Terry's claims disproved by the England national team, Arsenal and Birmingham, but now the club he captains have proved just how wrong he is.

So ...... how do you explain that one away Mr. Terry?

I think the English charge for the title lasted longer than your little French one, fellas. Perhaps you need those numbing condoms to prolong your performance. As any woman will tell you, it's not how you start... it's how you finish.

Yes it did last longer ..... 24 hours longer. What a tremendous showing of English grit ..... you should be so proud.

I wouldn't count Chelsea out of the title race just yet though it doesn't look good for them. It's ManU's home form that has sustained their campaign but they have only one home game left. Doesn't look good for Chelsea but it's not over yet. Whatever the outcome though it will have nothing at all to do with nationality.

£500m spent for 24 hours more durability. That is the world's most expensive prostitute.

Well, still a team with an English spine will win it :-)

"Whatever the outcome though it will have nothing at all to do with nationality". Abso-blooy-lutely. Utd will win it, and they will do so because they have been the best team. That's it. In fact if they don't win the league and the CL they will have no one to blame but themselves.

you guys seem a little 'tetchy' on the English thing...is it because you are an English Club playing in an English league but are not an English team?
