Terry, the FA and Chelsea.

Hats off to Chelsea but not the FA even though it did fine JT and give him a four match ban.

Unlike the sympathetic magistrate who dismissed the case against Terry Chelsea’s actions have more or less confirmed that Terry had a case to answer. The fans understandably want to stand by their skipper and it might be interesting to find out the seat number possibly held by the friendly magistrate in the Matthew Harding stand.

Turning back to the FA, I predicted that, as an England player, his match ban punishment would be less stringent than the dose dished out to Suares but whether JT will ever play for the National Team again could now be in doubt.

Racism still exists in the game and I agree with Fergie that Jason Roberts is reacting in the wrong way over the T-shirt situation. He may well be annoyed at the lack of progress as he sees it but the way to fight your corner is with your fellow pros and not alone on the outside.

Football daft for as long as I can remember. Lifelong Liverpool fan and Socialist. Has actually stood on the Anfield pitch. Played the game, refereed it and reported on it. Best playing time was at under 18 level and enjoyed indoor 5 aside until injury forced me out at 52.
