One person you can always rely on to come out fighting for the club is John Terry.
As we have seen over seasons gone by, when things are difficult and the club isn't doing so well, he always comes out and tells it exactly as it is and it's something we have wanted someone to come out and say for weeks now.
Terry, speaking after the recent performance against Brentford said:
"We need to liven up a bit and realise the importance to the fans and the club. Champions League football is a must next season. We saw last season, going to the Champions League final, suffering with all the extra games and stuff like that, we ended up finishing sixth in the League. It's difficult but we have a squad and it's down to the players who come in to rotate and play well.He is spot on as usual with his comments isn't he. He takes alot of stick around the various grounds around the country but I will tell you this, there is no one else I would rather have in my team when your backs are against the wall and you need someone to get players going!
Even though it's great to be back personally, on a team performance we should be winning the game and now we've made it difficult for ourselves with a replay again.
We have another game we could do without but we should beat them at the Bridge. I was disappointed because we didn't fight and they wanted it more.
We're not [winning any trophies at the moment]. It's disappointing going to Swansea and not scoring over two legs of the [Capital One Cup] semi-final. Being so lacklustre, like we were at Brentford.
Over the two legs against Swansea, at home we did better but going there, I'd rather we'd lost that three or 4-0 and give it a go and we didn't do that."
I am reading reports that are unconfirmed in the press that Rafa Benitez met with Terry and Lampard to discuss the "situation" the season and our performances. If the report IS true, it's the first step on the road to recovery in my view.
Let's hope we see a much improved and better performance from Chelsea tonight as our fight to finish within the top four and even higher starts tonight!
