JT`s Back

Keeping those fingers crossed appears to have worked!

After being absent, through injury, since early November, John Terry finally got to pull his boots on in some competitive action last night.

JT played for 45 minutes in the U21`s victory over Fulham, at Cobham and is hoping to end his exile, from the first team, in the clash with Stoke City this weekend, at the Britannia Stadium.

Following his much-awaited comeback, JT had this to say about continuing his comeback,

"It`s been a long two months. I got a couple of tackles in and everything felt fine."

"I came through the game and put myself forward. The manager said in the week it might take time."

"Maybe it is too soon to get a start and the lads have been playing well anyway."

"I know I have to be patient and wait for the chance to get back into the squad. The knee feels totally fine, it`s just the lungs that are feeling it a bit."

Personally, I reckon Stoke will be a game too soon for JT although I wouldn`t write JT off when it comes to being involved in the midweek fixture at home to Southampton, next week!

I am happy that he is back, but on no account should he be played against stoke, play him in midweek against soton and arsenal, please not tommorow, he'll be a real difference in the team

I would have been highly excited if he were a striker but he is a defer,cahill and iva have done pretty well in recent weeks so he shouldnt be rushed back unless he is 100% fit..however,he is welcome back to the team
