 In Defence Of John Terry and Lance Armstrong.
 .
 John Terry is not a racist. Lance Armstrong has never tested positive for drugs. Both propositions have their adherents. The former largely consisting of fans of a certain London football club. The latter?  Well not real sure actually.
.
No hang on John Terry was acquitted in a Court of law. Well what was the FA tribunal hearing/investigation all about. Oh yes seems as though he was guilty of racial abuse. But of course to your average punter what is the difference. The words used..."you f------ black c--- . " were apparently "not acceptable" according to the recent captain of England. Some might say a belated apology.
.
Hang on again. Captain of the national side. Can't be such a bad chap. What a role model you say. Well we all make the odd mistake here and there. Yes I know John might have clocked up the odd clanger. Wayne who?  Yeah but that wasn't football. Nothing to do with racism there. See can't be such a bad chap.
.
Besides seems he will continue as captain of the Chelsea Football Club. See told you role model was important. Yes was fined. He will probably survive after losing 2 weeks wages. He could always put up at Ashley Cole's place for a fortnight. Not sure there is room at the inn at Wayne's place.
.
Anything else. Well if there are any other sanctions Chelsea are certainly not going to tell anyone. Confidential for John's eyes only it seems. Transparency a victim you say. Never. This is the club on top of the most watched and highly publicised football league in the world. Surely they have acted openly and responsibly throughout.
.
Parallels to the Armstrong saga abound you cry. Never. The Armstrong affair involved systematic doping, corruption, coercion and so the list goes on. Nothing to do with racism. A role model comes crashing down . Well yes there is that. However really John Terry is no Lance Armstrong. Probably can't even ride a bike.
.
The great sadness of the Armstrong headlong ( some might say hurtling) descent into oblivion is the allegations of corrupting the young, those just starting to emerge in the sport. As a role model he is no more. The picture is only going to deteriorate with allegations of perjury, no sponsors left and litigation for the return of his prize money and even his bronze Olympic medal on the horizon.
.
See John Terry  is a veritable saint  or so some would have you believe ...

At A Kent Pub.
.
Speaking of defence and John Terry the good news for Spurs is his suspension for the derby. Garry Cahill a workable replacement but our pub prefer a Chelsea without Terry. No Drogba either.
.
Should be a cracking game. Lets hope for a Spurs goal first up. That will keep the game open and exciting for the purists. As well it will settle pub nerves here.
.
The President of the Long Ball Club colloquially known as "Hoof It Thataway." is 58 today. Happy birthday Sam Allardyce.
.
Cheers ... Armstrong once described his successes as miracles following his cancer battle ... not even a miracle will save him this time  ... Greg Meyer    coys.

 Jimmy's Video Spot:
Fed up with these two scoundrels?. Well here's some footage of a man of whom Spurs have high hopes.Terrible defending but good movement by our man. He's no Luka Modric just yet but there's a lot resting on his and Sandro's shoulders tomorrow.Time for a second Mousa.

Bale's Brat!
Incandescent with anger here. Guy gets paid more in a week than most human beings in a lifetime and he can't do what he is paid for because his other half is about to sprog? Is he serious!!?? What does the rest of humanity do in similar circumstances? Andwer: Suck it up! More to the point why didn't AVB give him a sharp kick up the rear end onto the pitch? Here's a clue: that little rat Modric during the week telling Bale to join him in Madrid sent the shivers up the Spurs management's back with the result that to keep Bale at WHL, he now gets everything he asks for from the spineless bosses, including permission not to do what he is paid to do. There is a sickness at the heart of this game and this is an example of it.
