Will Chelsea Report City To The FA Over JT?

Will Chelsea Report City To The FA Over JT?


Manchester City are expected to make a third bid for Chelsea Captain John Terry, however rumours circulating around Stamford Bridge suggest the club are on the verge of reporting City to the FA for tapping up the 28-year-old Englishman.

Depending on who you believe City are going to offer Chelsea anywhere between £40m and £50million, in addition, entice Terry with an incentive of being paid the highest salary in the Premier League, if not the world - £250,000 a week.

Chelsea are expecting Terry to make a public statement about his intentions in the next few days.

On our last poll Vital Manchester City asked the following...

Do Chelsea have a leg to stand on if they report City to the FA over John Terry?

Here is the result, in descending order.

Not really - 73%
Yeah I think so - 16%
Not bothered - 11%

I'm a Chelsea fan and even I think us reporting you for tapping up is a bit on the rich side. Lets be honest, you came out in the papers and said you wanted JT. Its not like you held an ilicit meeting in a London hotel restaurant with him, your manager and his agent, then denied it when the papers reported it?

Sensibly said OLASAL, it was quiet and then all of a sudden Chelsea make a public statement about City trying to get him, and then before he knew it, MH had mics shoved under his face. He may have said a little much when he spoke of giving Terry a new challenge and so on, but other than that, nothing he said or did could be misconstrued as 'tapping up' - particularly when it was Chelsea that made it public in the first place.

I think with our record we'd do well to shut up about tapping up. What does it achieve other than fostering resentment amongst everyone else and making everyone hate us even more for being hypocrites? Worth bearing in mind - the last player we tapped up - we got. Lets hope its not the same with JT. (unless you are going to give us £45m for him!)

If you have broken the rules about approaching a player then yes we should report you, because you know if it was the other way round every man and his dog would be having a go at us. If you haven't any rules then nope no need ... What I would say is I wish we could take the press to court every time they print cr@p......so basically they would be in court full time..:O)

Also is it actually Cheslea saying they will report City, or is it "the press" saying Chelsea will report City.....big difference between those statements.. Chances are its the press based on a so called "inside source"... I just wish the whole sage would finish as its not helping anyone. Why would city spend 40m on JT, he's 29 and got a dodgy back. Yes he's a great leader and player but how many years do you really think you'll get out of him?

We absolutely should report Hughes for tapping up. We have been condemned in that department for much less than Hughes has done behind the back of Chelsea and in public media.

As soon as Taggart nabbed Berbaflop from Manchester airport without the permission of Tottenham all rules went out of the window. If they can get away with that then Hughes can have Terry over for dinner and give him a £10 million cheque desert for all the FA care.
