I just watched John Terry’s media interview with utter disbelief. Here’s England coming off two dismal performances and needing everyone to focus on an improved performance on Wednesday, come together as a squad and rally behind the manager and along comes JT, the self-proclaimed England saviour, whose says he’s going to confront Capello, tell him what’s what and have him change his tactics in order to put things right. What a prat.
His claim that he represented all the England players was ludicrous and it seems they were all shrinking with embarrassment as they watched JT telling the world that even though he was no longer captain, due to his rogering Wayne Bridge’s ex-girlfriend, he never stopped leading the team and that nothing ever changed as he was born to do this. Born to be a prat is what he meant to say.
Terry seems to have forgotten that it was Capello that guided England so flawlessly to the World Cup finals in the first place and so now after 2 games, where the England players themselves performed so horribly, he’s no longer the man to lead the team and that it’s down to our hero Terry to fix it. Brilliant thinking John boy.
And, after all the bravado, apparently Terry didn’t say a word to Capello as one of the assistant coaches advised him it wouldn’t go down too well. Maybe the best thing Terry could do to get England’s poor start to World Cup back on track is to pack his bags, stop causing unnecessary disruption in the England camp and go and have a few pints with his team-mate Anelka.
