Allegations on Terry cleared, but game is under pressure

John Terry, the former England Captain comes out clear on Friday in the accusion of racial abuse case over Anton Ferdinand player of Queens Park Rangers. The incident of the allegations took place in a match during Chelsea and Queens Park Rangers in October last year. Rumours are that the case was filed because Terry abused Anton using words like “f*ck off”, “f*ck off”, ‘f*cking black c*nt”, and “f*cking nobhead”. All this was a big question. Terry was in deep shock by hearing all this on part of the Prosecutor Duncan Penny. But the initial answer was a denial by Chelsea’s captain John Terry to the false allegations made against him.

But the chief magistrate Howard Riddle finally cleared all the charges over John Terry of racial abuse. John Terry was saved of a certain end to his career by clean chit from the Westminster magistrates court in London on Friday. But this certain decision could have terminated John Terry’s career at Chelsea. To the surprise Chelsea runs a strong anti-racism campaign off ground. This leaves the club with very few options left. Could Chelsea take the risk of terminating their ‘Captain Leader Legend’ or housing a racist in their team? The Blues always stood by the side of their captain Terry.

 But at the end the big question remains is that is the game still being played in the right spirit? This is not the first incident of racial abuse. The big tension is the game is under pressure. 

 

Chelsea’s Captain Terry In Trouble

 

          Former England Captain John Terry was accused of calling Queens Park Rangers player Anton Ferdinand a “f#@$ing black c&#t” during a match between Chelsea and QPR on 23 October last year.

John Terry’s trial is currently going on in Westminister Magistrates Court. John Terry is completely denying the charges made by Anton Ferdinand and says that he has not done anything wrong. Terry on his trial on Wednesday was very keen to speak to the police about the false allegation charged on him for racial abuse.

According to rumours the trial is expected to take five days. 

Chelsea confirm Eden Hazard capture

 

Chelsea Football Club has finally brought closure to an intriguing transfer saga with the capture of promising Lille midfielder Eden Hazard, fending off competition from Manchester rivals United and City. The 21-year old Belgium has already agreed terms with the Londoners and has passed a medical as well. He is expected to join the Champions League winners after Euro 2012.

“He will join the club in July when the players return for pre-season training,” a Chelsea statement read.

Hazard said: “I’m delighted to finally arrive here, it’s a wonderful club and I can’t wait to get started.”

Presenting the Andre Villas Boas rap song (video)

With the news of Chelsea owner Roman Ibrahimovic losing his patience and sacking a manager yet again comes as no surprise, its hard to imagine ourselves in the boots of the latest casualty, Andre Villas Boas — or simply AVB as he’s commonly known. But hey, let bygones be bygones (sic) and enjoy this wonderful rap song in memory of the Portuguese (below): 😛

Barclays Premier League: 15th October — Results Roundup

The Barclays/English Premier League (BPL/EPL) action is back after a 2 week gap (international break) and what better way to kick start the weekend than a showdown between Liverpool and Manchester United – arguably the biggest rivalry in the premier league. Both the Reds have a tremendous history behind and are managed by two legendary managers – King Kenny (Kenny Dalglish) and Emperor Ferguson (Sir Alex Ferguson).

The game was a tight affair in the first half but opened up completely in the second. Liverpool opened the scoring through a Steven Gerrard free kick – Gerrard of course returning from a long time out on the sidelines through a groin injury – and for United it was the little Mexican Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez who equalized with a nicely executed header. The match ended 1-1.

Other notable fixtures included Aston Villa’s visit to Manchester City, where a win for the hosts could take them top of the table thanks to United’s stalemate at Anfield, and Bolton’s clash with Wigan.

Manchester Delight: United cruise to record breaking 8-2 win over Arsenal as City put 5 past hapless Tottenham — Results Roundup

The third weekend of Barclays Premier League action has come to an end and boy it ended handsomely. While Chelsea and Liverpool both recorded wins yesterday, the clubs from Manchester really stole the show today with some amazing display of football.

Roberto Mancini’s Manchester City  stung Tottenham Hotspur right from the word go, creating chances after chances and eventually taking the lead through Edin Dzeko. The striker then went on to add 3 more to his tally, ending with 4 on the day and giving City their first win at White Hart Lane in 5 years. The Blues won 5-1. Kaboul scored the consolation goal for the home team.

As if Manchester City’s 5 star performance wasn’t enough, Manchester United really turned it on in the last match of the weekend, thumping 8 past a beleaguered Arsenal side as the Reds ran rampant at Old Trafford, showing City that they are still the team to beat. Wayne Rooney scored a hat-trick while Ashley Young starred too with 2 fantastic goals. Park, Welbeck, and Nani were the other scorers for United. For Arsenal, captain Van Persie, after missing a penalty early on, struck a ferocious volley from close range after Theo Walcott had given the Gunners some hope.

As with the previous 2 games this season, Arsenal yet again saw one of their players sent off, making it 3 out of 3. They now have more players sent off (3) than they have scored goals this season (2)  or have points on the board (1). Manchester United ended up 8-2 winners, breaking quite a few records in the process as Arsenal’s misery continues.
