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.

As expected, everyone wanted to know what will happen. Even the ref was more interested than anything else.

As Bridge walked past Terry as if he wasn’t there, the Chelsea skipper could only look down, his eyes full of shame.

Frank Lampard’s low strike put Chelsea ahead but Carlos Tevez equalised after a long ball was not dealt with, before Craig Bellamy shot beyond Hilario to make it 2-1 in favor of the away team.

Tevez then scored a penalty after Juliano Belletti saw red for a trip on Gareth Barry before a Bellamy tap-in.

Michael Ballack also saw red and Lampard scored a consolation penalty.

This 4-2 win meant that Manchester City completed a first league double over Chelsea since 1953.

Wayne Bridge deserts World Cup (all because of John Terry)

Wayne Bridge's decision means he won't feature in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa

Manchester City defender Wayne Bridge has announced he does not wish to be chosen for England duty, thereby ruling himself out of this summer’s World Cup.

(He is also effectively retiring from the international scene)

In a statement released by his lawyers, Bridge, 29, said his position in the national squad had become “untenable and potentially divisive”.

He has been at the centre of a media maelstrom since news broke over an alleged affair between John Terry and his former partner, Vanessa Perroncel. Terry was then sacked as England captain by coach Fabio Capello earlier this month.

“I feel for the sake of the team and in order to avoid what will be inevitable distractions, I have decided not to put myself forward for selection. I have today informed the management of this decision. I wish the team all the very best in South Africa.”

Bridge’s statement has shown the left-back remains troubled with the situation and read: “I have thought long and hard about my position in the England football team in the light of the reporting and events over the last few weeks.

“It has always been an honour to play for England. However, after careful thought I believe my position in the squad is now untenable and potentially divisive.

“Sadly therefore, I feel for the sake of the team and in order to avoid what will be inevitable distractions, I have decided not to put myself forward for selection.

“I have today informed the management of this decision. I wish the team all the very best in South Africa.”
