John Terry is said to be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season.

With Chelsea winning 4 titles, 5 FA Cups - and the Champions League Cup in the last decade or so - it's been a very successful club.

In 2005, Terry became the first defender - and the first Chelsea player - to be named the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year.

He was recognised after helping the Blues to just their second top-flight title, while his part in Chelsea's run to the Champions League semi-finals saw him named the Uefa club defender of the year. He would go on to receive that recognition again in 2008 and 2009.

As Danny Murphy said :-

"He is two-footed and has always been a good footballer and a good reader of the game because that is a gift," said Murphy. "But straight away he always had that tenacity he became known for and a willingness to put his body on the line - that old-fashioned centre-half mentality".

"That whole combination made him an obvious candidate to become an international footballer and as the years went on he got more confident and became even better".

"There have been some other really good centre-halves but even if it is only marginal, he is ahead of Rio Ferdinand, Ledley King and Jamie Carragher. They were all top players but JT just had that something extra that made him the top one for me."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nice one, Danny.

Here's some details of John and his career - some good, some controversial, some ugly.

Spurs were superb and at their very best in the semi-final.

They never led and Chelsea scored in the first few minutes and then from a penalty, then from their first corner and their 4th goal zoomed in from the edge of the box.

Spurs were absolutely shattered when Costa and Hazard came on and started winning ball and running at the Spurs defence.

"How did Spurs lose that?", said a broken-hearted pundit in the studio.

They scored 4 times, byti.

Chelsea are through to the final - again. Spurs have now lost 7 semis on the trot.

Well played Chelsea.

:clap:

Matic smacks in a little beauty.

Southampton were great last night.

Dangerous throughout, they scored an equalising goal to make it 1-1 after Chelsea's early goal by Hazard but conceded another 3 goals, 2 from MOTM Costa, before scoring a late headed goal from an ex-Chelsea player.

4-2 at the end and, as Everton rolled over last weekend, I'm hoping for a very easy game up there this weekend.

Here's last night's video :-

Spurs and Chelsea both won.

Everton were good for 50 minutes; after the first Chelsea goal, a superb strike, it was all over.

Pedro's 25-yard stunner, Gary Cahill's close-range finish off his knee and Willian's tap-in kept Antonio Conte's side four points clear.

Forgot to mention, Chelsea won the FA Youth Cup again.

Man City's lads were just overwhelmed and I suggested our youngsters would score 5 before the match kicked off.

Good game to watch as well, both sides had loads of pace and skill.

Chelsea’s remarkable FA Youth Cup run continued as the young Blues sealed a fourth successive title with a 6-2 aggregate victory over Manchester City.

From the BBC :

Quote:
Chelsea moved to within one win of the Premier League title and confirmed Middlesbrough's relegation with a consummate performance and emphatic victory at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte's side can become champions with victory against West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Friday night while Middlesbrough must contemplate a future back in the Championship after they were swept aside on Monday.

The Blues had already created a succession of chances before Diego Costa turned in MOTM Cesc Fabregas' pass after 23 minutes.

And the contest was effectively over when Marcos Alonso scored at the far post via the legs of Middlesbrough keeper Brad Guzan 11 minutes before the break.

Fabregas created Chelsea's third which Nemanja Matic converted as the hosts laid siege to Boro's goal.


The final whistle brought very different emotions to the two groups of players and the distraught Boro manager and players were all given handshakes/hugs by the sympathetic Chelsea Manager. Being relegated is something we can all sympathise with. It is not nice.

Image

On a continuing theme, it could have been 9 or 10 last night, we're still not scoring enough. With shots being saved or blocked on the line time and again - and others whistling past the post - Boro got away without being totally crushed in an avalanche of goals.

All 3 goals went through the Boro Keeper's legs and I've not seen that particular hat trick before, it was different.

Here's the usual Daily Mail rhetoric :-

Quote:
There were no nerves on Monday night, no tension, not even a ripple of uncertainty. The news that Middlesbrough had contrived to crash the team bus on the way in seemed to sum up the competence of the opposition.

Chelsea controlled the game from first to last and by the time Middlesbrough had a pop at goal, they were 3-0 down and as good as relegated.

All that was required was the formality of Craig Pawson's whistle at the end to confirm their return to the Championship after a single Premier League season. They offered little last night to suggest it was undeserved.

WBA are tonight's opposition.

I'm hoping for a draw.

A win would be very nice ...
