After another imperious display yesterday against Manchester City, John Terry has spoken of being restored as the permanent England Captain. You will not be surprised read that even though the armband was taken away, he never gave up on getting it back.

He said:
"I've always done whatever the manager needs of me to make sure we win. Beating Wales is the most important thing as it's a massive game. I moved on very quickly from the decision about losing the captaincy and I've never fallen out with the manager. But I've never given up hope that I will captain England again.

When the manager told me in that meeting at Wembley that I was losing the job I accepted and respected his decision - even though I did not necessarily agree with it - shook his hand and his assistant Franco Baldini's hand and told them I'd always give 100 percent.

The manager said he really appreciated that and hoped that would be the case. Since then he's said to me how I've done that and he's been proud of me for it. I've always respected him as a coach, a manager and as a man."

I know there are a number of football supporters out there who will always get on the backs of our players when they play for England. John Terry, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard get stick of have had during their England careers.

Maybe, just maybe, these football supporters are now focused (as they should be) on matters on the pitch for a change as the tide seems to be turning. Ashley Cole won the England player of the year award as voted by the fans and JT now has the armband back.

That's the thing about football, everyone has an opinion and quite rightly so as that's how it should be. It's Capello's opinion to hand back the armband to JT and in my opinion there is only one man for the job.

The simple fact is John Terry gives his all in every game no matter if its for Chelsea or for England. He is a natural leader, not someone like Rio Ferdinand who had to accept the position and learn to deal with it or Steven Gerrard who is the same. I get the impression that Gerrard just wants to get on and play his football without the hassle of the armband for England. I maybe wrong, but that's just my opinion.

I just hope that everyone can get over all the fuss about the decision because at the end of the day we as England fans want our side to do well with the best possible chance and the best players playing led by a born leader and that's John Terry!.
