Terry`s Back and Ready to Force the Issue
Now here`s a poser for you!
Is it a coincidence that our form dipped when John Terry picked up his knee injury against Liverpool, back in November, or is it just me thinking outside the box?
Whatever conclusions you may make about what has gone on, John Terry is now back and restored to the heart of our defence and hopefully we can get back to winning ways.
But, as we prepare to face Reading tonight, JT has a few thoughts he`s shared with the media, remarking,
"Even though it`s great to be back personally, I was disappointed with the game at Brentford because we didn`t fight and they wanted it more. It was disappointing being so lack-lustre after not scoring in two legs against Swansea."
"I`d rather we`d lost 4-0 and given it a go - but we didn`t do that."
"So we need to liven up a bit and realize how important this is to the fans. Last season we suffered with all the extra games involved in winning the Champions League and ended up finishing sixth in the League. But Champions League football is a must for this club next season."
"We`re playing a lot of games and things are difficult. But we have a squad and it`s down to the players to come in and do well when the team is rotated."
"We should be winning games against Brentford and now we`ve made it difficult for ourselves by having to play a replay. It`s another game we could have done without."
It is, but with JT back and ready to drag us out of the current mess we`re in via those extraordinary leadership and motivational skills are we on the cusp of change?
