Take your time John Terry. There’s no rush to get off the field. In fact, why don’t you pause to take out your shin guards before you make your slow walk to the tunnel? The West Brom fans as it gives them more time for them to share their true feelings for you. Had you jogged off the field right after your red card, they might not have had enough time to coordinate their w@***r chant. It’s a good thing you paused.
Rough start of the season for John Terry. Last year he played every single minute of every match for Chelsea. In week 2 of this season he was subbed off for the first time under Mourinho in Chelsea’s 3-0 loss to Manchester City. Then to add insult to injury, he was red carded their game against West Brom and will now have to miss next week’s match.
Chelsea normally has an impenetrable defense but they have conceded 7 goals in three games. That doesn’t all fall on Terry. There are many reasons the defense is struggling, but Terry is the backbone of the normally impenetrable back line. It’s early in the season and there is no reason to think that this is the end of John Terry with Chelsea, especially not after the great season he had last year.
But age is not on his side and while I do think that he will come back from the red card and still have a productive season, I’m sure the replacement discussions are already underway.
