The Ice Bucket Challenge

The latest craze sweeping across this part of the world surrounds a bucket of ice-cold water.

It seems that once you`ve poured a bucket of ice-cold water over you, after having been nominated by somebody who has already done the feat, you are allowed to nominate three others to follow suit.

Well it appears that John Terry, as you`d expect, had no qualms about accepting the challenge, after being nominated. However, having done the challenge it is being inferred that JT took great delight in nominating Rafa Benitez as one of his three to follow suit.

It would appear that perhaps there is a little bit of resentment still in those bones, as far as JT is concerned, for the manner in which Benitez treated JT when he was playing out his role as interim manager.

Now I wonder whether Rafa the Gaffer will accept the challenge!

Drogba nominated Jose & Eva does it means he holds any grudge against them? From what I've seen so far, it looks like a friendly gesture.

@misterlecturer, drogba's could be a friendly gesture but you would ask yourself why JT would still remember having a go at the FSW. I think he still hold a little resentment as the FSW didnt believe in him as much as he would expect which was my thought back then as well.

Why not? Its for charity. Who says they had personal issues den. Besides, terry was hardly fit dat season. I dnt think dey hold any grudge against each other nd this is a proof of that. Or can we also say d rationship btw mourinho nd ashley has broken cos he was unused most of the time last season?

JT wouldn't make genuine resentment towards Rafa public. This is for fun, which very likely means that JT and Rafa (don't say it!) may actually like each other.
