"The evidence before the court is incontrovertible, there's no need for the jury to retire. In all my years of judging I have never heard before of someone more deserving of the full penalty of law. The way you made them suffer your exquisite wife and mother, fills me with the urge to defecate." Pink Floyd ~ The Trial
Lies, lies and damned lies. If there is any justice left in the world then Chelsea are going to hell in a handcart. What beggars belief is that they actually think that anyone is so stupid as to even remotely entertain their crooked bleating anymore. Cheats.
You watched the game, now you can read every shameless word at your leisure. We ought start with the class act that is Ashley Cole.
The tackle was a straight red. He ENTIRELY failed to connect with the ball and instead 'took out' Alan Hutton. Yes, I acknowledge that no major damage was incurred by the Spurs man, but that isn't the point. The potential for horrific injury through such an ill conceived 'challenge' is obvious to even the most stubborn and bird brained amongst us.
Cole then compounded the tackle with blatant dissent. What a tough guy. His back to Riley effectively saying, 'just get on with it you Wimp - Hurry up, I'm Ashley Cole.' I thought I was angry as this was happening. But I even surprised myself at how incensed I became when the wet fish referee then proceeded to book Keane.
We have to endure the Boxhead Freckled Shrek Rooney SCREAMING obscenities at point blank range at officials virtually every week. Robbie Keane makes a pretty mild approach and is carded. Joke compounds joke.
Damage limitation galore. Cole and his pal the dog, Terry then wheeled out their fake sincerity shtick. "I'm an emotional person, things can happen on the pitch very quickly but I didn't mean to disrespect the referee," Well shy of pulling Riley's shorts down and lashing a custard pie in his face, I'm at a loss to understand what more you could have done at the time to disrespect him more.
Terry's version of events are comical. "I asked Mike Riley to calm the Spurs bench down and then he told me he was clear that it was a high tackle and it was a booking so I pulled our players away. I think people see me running 50 yards to pull them away and they think I'm running over to get involved but that wasn't the case on Wednesday." Of course the killer line of revelation here is 'but that wasn't the case on Wednesday.' Why say that?
What Terry is subconsciously admitting is that ordinarily he does run 50 yards to browbeat referees. We know what we saw on Wednesday and that is EXACTLY what he did on this occasion too. His first concern was to distract from what Cole had done and tempt Riley into getting involved with the justifiably animated Tottenham bench.
Whilst Cole's 'apology' was worthless, Terry's 'praise' for Mike Riley was priceless. "We need to listen to refs and they need to listen to us. Let's not scream and shout at each other." Pffffffffftt no, there's more...
"Mike Riley was great on Wednesday night. I thought he dealt with the incident brilliantly. He was clear about how he saw it. He communicated it very well." Please, stop no really, I can't take anymore. The winner of Best Supporting Actor goes to... John Terry.
