John Terry: When Good Gossip Goes Bad
Think it’s fair to say that we would like to shove our fingers in our ears and sing “la, la, la,” rather than deal with this story.
Considering we rummage only in snark and footy private lives, we admit, this is unusual. But here’s why:
1. Because it’s straight up, messed up and ick-making to the highest degree. Damn, John Terry, you shoulda, coulda, woulda.
2. Because in a World Cup year we like to imagine a happy, united and unified team heading into battle.
3. Because this reminds us that the list of current England players – and in fact, footy players in general- that have had nasty extra-curricular activities reported, rumoured and whispered about is a skanktastic kilometre long.
4. It takes the wind out of our short tent story. (Hee, geddit?)
As the story develops and we can seperate truth from rumour more clearly, we will update with links below.
Side note: If this news is the “open secret” it’s rumoured to be, does that mean Toni Terry has known about this for some time?
Update with link about JT’s role as England captain: “If the requirement is for the best leader, the man who exudes the qualities required of a captain on the pitch, there remains no one better.” - Captain Contradiction
