John Terry: The Silence Is Deafening


Of course everyone is entitled to their opinion however my gut feeling tells me John Terry's days at Stamford Bridge are numbered.

We don't know whether Manchester City has made a third bid for the England captain but I have a sneaky suspicion John Terry's head must be close to being scrambled.

Terry must be asking himself..

Why hasn't Peter Kenyon approached me and explained the City offer?

Will Chelsea offer me an improved contract?

If not, why not?

Am I being taken for granted?

Should I be thinking about a new challenge?

Would I prefer giving the Champions League a miss this season allowing me to prepare for next years World Cup. Less games means less chance of being injured.


City fans were in a similar situation a couple of years ago when Chelsea came in and pinched SWP. Now the shoe is on the other foot I wonder what Chelsea fans think. I know, I bet they are shaking in their boots.

John Terry could have ended all this speculation by making an official statement, but no, I suspect he's too busy thinking about moving north.

Correct me if I am wrong but Terry is Chelsea's one homegrown first teamer?
Johnny Baguette
Unless JT speaks, and soon and says i'm staying at Chelsea I think we might just pull off one of the biggest signings in years. Wow, this would rock the football world down to its foundations.
Tudor
Im not found of terry at all and i hope we dont get him. Only benefit i see getting him is, tevez and eto will hurry up and sign!!!!!
enzo city
the silence is deafening because there is nothing to say! Why shoul dhe come out and say he's not prepared to move to a half decent side like Citeh? He's under contract, three more years, so he'll only be sold when th eclub says so not the tabloid rags!
merlin
spot on tudor...

Although you say that Merlin, we were in same position when Chelsea wanted to buy SWP and we wondered why he didn't come out and say he was not interested. I am sure a lot of Chelsea fans would be happier if Terry did make a statement if only to appease the fans. I also think that Terry will sort out his differences with the Chelsea management which will end up with him getting a new contract that will keep him at Chelsea for the rest of his footballing career.
Buzz Lightyear
Yes it is I, Bumps, with more inane comments. sic Bluewolfie. As a true Blue, and I don't mean a Citeh or Brum fan, I think JT is just maneuvering a bit. Why should someone who is cited as the heart and soul of our team be paid less than a German mercenary? (not mentioning any names). JT isn't moving north, so don't get too excited Citeh. (hopefully I won't be eating my words)
Bumps
Funny how people compare this situation with SWP transfer from city to CFC, JT is Chelsea captain, He plays for one of the best teams in Europe and a serious contender in CL. Going from Chelsea to Man city is surely a step or should I say a huge fall down. SWP signing for chelsea made sense as he was going from a mid to bottom table team to a team in top three. Now how are the two situations comparable?They look to be completely opposite of each other.
nimz
Lets not forget that only a few weeks ago he said he didn't want to leave. Except for the wages why would he leave to go to City. No european football and no chance of the league.
Embers
Shaking? I ain't shakin' nothing , sonny. If you buy him, it will cost you a lot, if you don't, we keep a good player.Either way it's all good.
k_chelski
Im not going to get Liverpool-fan-esque like when we nearly took Gerrard off them a few years ago and wish you lot all the best with it (building a team with no history etc etc). You'll soon realise exactly what we went through when the press inevitably turn against you and create a 'sensation' about nothing (tapping up Cashley etc). For what it's worth though, I very, very much doubt Terry will join you this pre-season. There's no way the England captain will play for a side outside the top four in the season preceeding a world cup. Maybe in another season or two when you're closer to the top of the table....
andleics
Yeah i agree with Tudor Wait till the man himself speaks
Blue Lad Scragg
nimz, so I take it you are quite happy for Tery to say nothing?
Buzz Lightyear
It's a win-win situation for us so I don't care.
nimz
he doesnt have to come out and say anything,as long as he says it to chelsea then it doesnt matter.
Mike Hunt
I think most of us Chelsea fans simply think he's using the silence as a negotiating tactic for a better paycheck. While I don't want him to leave, if he somehow does end up going to you guys it would be a great bit of business for us. You'd be paying crazy money for a player who's best days are arguably behind him and we could use that towards buying Ribery/Sneijder/Huntelaarr/Tevez. In reality, it would probably be better for our club if we did sell him! That being said, I don't think it'll happen. JT doesn't have that many chances to reach the CL final ahead of him and your team is just too big of a risk right now.
WithFalling
Whatever is the truth, this mess have hurt JT's image and popularity. Sad to see how poor advice and greed have kept this story running!
