First of all, to organise in there and to be the leader and voice he is to give people encouragement or a kick up the arse during games because without him, it's something I think we miss.
Secondly, because it gives Rafa Benitez the option to play David Luiz in midfield with Oriol Romeu injured and Mikel off to play the African Cup of Nations next month.
Well today our hopes have been dashed as Terry has reportedly "broken down" in training.
Rafa Benitez confirmed the news in his press conference today when he said:
‘He was training today and running on the pitch but he is not available yet. He was not training with the ball, just warming up. Today was fine in the warm-up but then he gets a problem, it is one step forward, one step back. Hopefully it will be easier in the next few weeks. The problem is the inflammation and the knee is so complicated. I hope he will be available at Christmas but I can’t guarantee anything. You can’t predict when he will be available.’
Typical really isn't it with our luck at the moment. With important games coming up, it would have been great to have him in there being the inspirational captain he has proven to be and like I said earlier, someone we have missed since we have had our problems.
Let's hope we can cope without him!
