Terry To Face Arsenal

Chelsea's John Terry seems to have made an astonishing recovery just in time to face Arsenal in tomorrows League Cup Final.

In an official press release and their website, Chelsea said...

'John Terry will play in tomorrow's Carling Cup Final against Arsenal. The Chelsea captain has recovered from the ankle injury sustained against Porto.'

'The speed of Terry's recovery has suprised even the medical department who had told Jose Mourinho that Terry would be available for the Portsmouth game next week.

So there we have it. Terry plays. Mind games or a potential unfit player on the park?

You decide.

Mind games?Why would we risk the champions league for the carling cup?It makes no sense.Maybe it didn't injured anything, just bruise and pain.It happens sometimes.Rarely though.

I don't think he's fit, I just think Chelsea know they're not the same without him and they're playing an unfit player. Very unwise, the Spuds have been doing that with King for a year now, it never leads to good things for the player.

No I didnt see it Rocks (in true Wenger style!), I saw him going off on the stretcher. I hope he is still injured and they're playing him anyway. Hang on, this whole 'playing him while he's injured' sounds familiar don't it Paul? ;)

Its mind games. Imagine the kids reaction when they thought that JT will not play but a day before match, he is fit to play.

I admire him for playing, I'm certain he muct be experiencing some discomfort, but look at titi, he has not been able to perform to his usual standards with this foot injury he apparently has, so Terry runs the risk of making himself look flat-footed, cumbersome, and a liability to chelski's efforts tomorrow. »»Arsene Knows««

Theres no way JT will be completely 100% so it highlights the difference between Le Boss' and Mourinho's views on the cup.

Arsenal only won because JT wasn't completely fit! Excuse in a bag for the special needs one, just in case! What a coward!

No offence aimed at you and the fans kchels, but all we've heard all week is John Terry, John Terry. Is Morinho that worried that with one man missing your team is about to implode. For crying out loud, look at the team sheets tomorrow afternoon and check the proven quality on your side against a young Arsenal side. What does the guy want, a two goal head start or something?

None taken, flv.Those kids defeated half of the premiership team, including liverpool.I wouldn't give excuses if we lost, with, or without John Terry.It wouldn't be the first time essien would fill that hole.I'm not expecting to lose.However, if we do, then we weren't good enough to win it.Period.

Hmm..actually, I was surprised to hear that Terry was fit to play. Didn't really think much of it besides the fact that Essien would play in his usual position. But instead of the mind games, could it possibly be the 'internal pressure' Makelele revealed a couple of days ago that has anything to do with Terry playing the match? Of course this is all speculation, but if he was stretchered off the pitch, and a couple of days later he's made this 'remarkable' recovery...I dunno. It doesn't fit, but okay.

I hope he plays, he just had a bad ankle I saw it on replays. Unless the chav doctors did not replace the old one with a spanking new, he's bound to be more vulnerable than a 100% Essien.
