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.

I did not expect that.

Injured my arse! It's mind games.
simmy8_2000
You reckon he's fully fit K?
Rocky7
Dunno Simmo, did you see him turn his ankle the other night?
Rocky7
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.
k_chelski
The Beast will have him for his late lunch!
Goofle
Gives them no exscuses when we win.
iceman10
i agree iceman. there won't be any excuse or complaints after the beast worsens Terry's injury
49ers
Maybe its desperation now United look to have sown up the premiership?
iceman10
*sewn

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.
Little Dutch
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? ;)
simmy8_2000
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.
bashmvp
it doesent matter who they play tomm, they're going down..
luckys_10
so he's fit. Big deal. that means no whining when we turn them over good and proper with a beastly performance. »»Arsene Knows««
Wingston75
of course..we will see denilson conquer the midfield and the beast unleashed..
bashmvp
if they are playing him when his fitness is in question, they're asking for trouble - he could tweak something, and be out for quite a while... »»Arsene Knows««
Wingston75
agree..like when he play us in the fa cup final, he play through the pain killer..and not performing best.
bashmvp
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.
MeetTheGunners
Arsenal only won because JT wasn't completely fit! Excuse in a bag for the special needs one, just in case! What a coward!
flv
Coward?No excuses, we lost, we lost.You win, you win.That's it.I do expect the same atitude from you lot.
k_chelski
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?
flv
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.
k_chelski
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.
ducksworth
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.
G4L
Kchel, we had tough games against Everton, Liverpool and West Brom but we did have a bye in the semi final so we can't complain really 8-).
flv
He was always gong to play, though this makes our task of winning much harder :(
AB_Arsenal
Ah, but AB, if we win, it will make the victory all the sweeter... »»Arsene Knows««
Wingston75
Looks like he will be on the side lines again.
