    I’m saying nothing original here, but the thing that’s really struck me about this business is the naivity with which people like Stuart Pearce and George Cohen have suggested that when it comes to football, everything else can and should be forgotten. It’s only football. If a mate of mine was to put my ex away – and I’m not talking about a casual relationship, but the mother of my child being put away by a married man on the sly – I wouldn’t give a monkeys about football, unless it involved me playing him hospital passes all afternoon. There are too many emotional issues to go into here by way of explanation, but the point is that football wouldn’t make a damn bit of difference.

    Left backs there, mate. The England right back position is well covered by Glen Johnson and Gary Neville. Oh …

    P. S. Get on the case – breaking news: Chester expelled …

    Edit point – Cole and Bridge are left-backs.
    I also like the typo that suggests Bridge had ‘spolit’ Ms Perroncel. Revenge in advance…

    What do Chelsea fans think they are applauding when he takes to the pitch, particularly the women supporters? This man is beyond any applause from anyone. He is no role model for any aspiring football player and certainly has no credibility with many of us fans. I hope Wayne Bridge takes the field as captain for Man City and prove what that role is about. If Terry has any grain of self respect left he should step down from the England team.

    Bridge’s not shaking Terry’s hand said a thousand words from a man who has been admirably quiet on the whole sorry saga.

    Terry (and Chelsea’s) performance for the following 90 minutes did too.

    Who’s the bottler now?

    Well done that man.

    While I think it’s entirely Wayne Bridge’s decision whether or not to shake Terry’s hand in the pre match hand shaking thing, the fact that his refusal to do so appears to carry no consequences exposes the pre match hand shaking thing as a bit of a sham does it not?
