    Are you comfortable having him lead your country into the WC?
    As opposed to who?

    He's on a hot streak atm Terry, with all the negative stories coming one by one. His PR person must be raking it in with all the fire fighting he or she has to do with JT. He'll still be England captain, the FA are gutless when it comes to situations like this, dont want to rock the boat. Might be a situation where Capello may not pick Bridge for the WC squad, he's injured anyway but if he returns, could happen.
    The FA would make decisions based on rumours and tabloid press, for the most part of these stories?

    Cfc, do you seriously believe that there is no truth in this, or in any of the stories surrounding his family's ridiculous antics?

    He hired lawyers to try and get an injunction ffs.
    Well there may be some truth, otherwise JT may have wanted to threaten to sue these papers for printing lies about him. I don't look to JT for morals etc, so what he does in his private life (yes it could be this low), isn't of much importance to me - his performances for Chelsea are however, and they've been excellent so i'll give him praise for that.

    I don't think I've said there isn't any truth behind his family's antics, I'm just saying that what his dad and his mum does is up to them, and shouldn't be used against John Terry. Of course, however, a vendetta is a vendetta.

    Do I want one of the best captains in the world to lead my country into the World Cup, yes I do. Surely we can't let the tabloids dictate who should and who shouldn't be captain? Granted, JT hasn't done himself any favours recently, although, as Stu Laverty said, as long as he does the business on the pitch, i'm more than happy with him.

    Based on your replies in the two threads, you would be happy with him leading the line for club/country even if he stabbed your mum. As long as it was written in a tabloid so you could disregard it.

    I've just been shown this article again, albeit from the Daily Mail, although Martin Samuel is often an excellent writer to give him credit - and I think he hits the nail on the head in this final paragraph:

    The Italian talks up the influence of Didier Drogba — although he was quiet by his standards yesterday — but Terry is his leader, as he has been for every Chelsea and England manager since 2006.

    That time span does not appear long, but in those three years a total of seven managers, whose honours include a World Cup, five European Cups, two Copa Americas and close to two dozen domestic titles, have all made him their captain.

    They do so because they see beyond the headlines, beyond the scandals and celebrity soap operas, beyond the sensation and the sneers.

    They do so because, when all that baggage is removed, what remains, quite simply, is one hell of a footballer.

    It's good that he has plans for his retirement, tbh, but isn't he a bit young to retire?


    Football>Golf, surely?

    Out of proportion, wouldn't expect anything different from you though, just another one of those retards in the TSR football section.

    I assume he's committed adultery? If so I don't know why people think sportsmen are such angels. I'd understand if we lived in a theocracy where sex outside of marriage was frowned upon. Besides, he's not the only English footballer to have cheated on his partner now is he? I can think of two more myself (A. Cole and Rooney).

    But with a team-mate's spouse? That's low.

    On that Mirror page is a quote from him:

    (Original post by Good English Lad John Terry)
    "I really regret what I've done to Toni. I'm not going to cheat on her ever again."
    Had no idea about this, and now this latest shambles. What a joker, but if his performances on the field aren't affected then a.) he is a heartless **** and b.) he should retain his place in the squad.

    It is but I think it still doesn't warrant the commotion it gets (because a lot of it will be because of an affair, rather than negative consequences of the team as a whole) and should be dealt with behind closed doors by Capello etc. Terry does seem to abuse his position of being captain at times. My ideal candidate was actually Hargreaves when Capello came along so I hope my glasses are not too blue tainted. Not sure I've worded all that correctly.

    I think it's time to see the Capello of old. He's only softened up a bit because he thinks the country will get on his back.
