Terry stripped of captaincy

Strange one this. Why has it taken so long for the FA to act? Why has it taken so long to hear the court casse / set a date for the hearing? How is stripping the armband, but picking the player going to reflect on the English game and the FA? and how will his being in the dressing room impact on the morale and unity of the squad?

Couldn't agree more.

If he is found found guilty he should be deported immediately.

Yet another "moral outrage crusade" led by the press.

And another case of someone who has not been found guilty being villified by the press as if he had been. Remember the witch hunt conducted on landlord Chris Jeffries who was arrested for the murder of Joanna Yeates?

The same press who are 'helping' an enquiry into illegal phone hacking by the press. It's quite clear that loads of them are guilty. Why waste public cash with a trial when they could simply be jailed and save everyone a lot of effort?

I'll go along with that.

That wasn't one person's word against another though, they knew he didn't turn up for a scheduled drugs test. That's reason enough to drop someone I think.

They could always drop him because he's shit.

It's a radical idea but it might work.

Terry's still a twat though.

He is indeed.

The problem is, if they automatically banned twats from the professional game, many clubs would struggle to field 5-a-side teams.

As a case in point, the WPS in the USA has cancelled the 2012 season.

You cheeky pup. It wasn't the point I was trying to make. And you know it.

The 2012 Women's Professional Soccer League in the United States has been cancelled. The decision was taken as a result of an ongoing legal dispute with a former club owner.


Clearly this was a business dispute - nothing related to the number of Jeremy Hunts present on the pitch.

Speaking of cheeky arses, the Grindstress fell on hers coming down the stairs earlier in the week (apparently my fault for having used the vacuum on them - the stairs, not the arse) and has a really quite spectacular bruise.

I've been trying to get a photo of it to share with the rest of the planet, but so far to no avail.

It is not uncommon for people to be suspended from their jobs / put on gardening duties, while issues are being investigated. It doessn't mean they are guilty. The only difference with Terry is surely the publicity surrounding it? What is the difference between him being stripped of a function, to that of a nurse or a teacher being suspended whilst allegaations are investigated? Or Chris Huhne for that matter?

Capello ought to do what Lancaster has done to the Rugby Squad. Clear out the clique of older players who think they have a divine right to be there (Terry, Ferdinand, Cole, Lampard). They were all crap in the World Cup anyway.

Bring in some new blood. Players with something to prove and smaller egos.

Barry as captain.

Barry? That's taking your own advice too far, surely.
