Terry To Miss Cup Final

Terry To Miss Cup Final

Chelsea skipper John Terry will miss Sunday`s Carling Cup final after suffering damage to an ankle ligament in Chelsea`s 1-1 draw with Porto on Wednesday (snigger).

Terry has only recently returned after having keyhole surgery on his back but the centre-half lasted only 11 minutes against Porto in the Champions League.

He joins Boulahrouz, Robben, Joe Cole and Judas Cole on the injury list for Sunday`s game. No doubt that should Arsenal win on Sunday, despite having half a dozen kids on the pitch, Chelsea fans and Mourniho will play the injury card.

Let`s not get ahead of ourselves though Gooners.

Speaking after Chelsea`s match Maureen had this to say: 'We are not in an easy situation. I do not know when John Terry will be back, but I am cool about it.

'It is unbelievable because of the injuries we keep getting. We don't have Khalid Boulahrouz and we don't have John Terry. We have one central defender - Ricardo Carvalho.''

Well that`s what you get for letting Billy Gallas and Robert Huth go in the summer and not replacing them.

As a great man once said "I pity the fool".

Robben injured? I didn't know about that one. On an extra note, just football players in general, I don't like it when they get injured. Puts a damper on everything.

Let Maureen blame it on injuries when they lose - we all know he messed up with his transfers. On the other hand, can he possibly get even more arrogant when they win?

Where does one get information about the number of assists made; Would love to know who actually leads in assists; Rosicky, Cesc, Hleb, Adebayor, Henry? On topic. Arsenal will win 3 -1
