Many a tear was shed at Stamford Bridge this afternoon as Chelsea said their farewells to a club legend, one John Terry.

The Blues’ captain started against Sunderland, making his 717th and final appearance for his beloved club.

The run-out lasted just 26 minutes (his squad number), whereupon the substitute’s board was raised and Terry exited the pitch to a standing ovation, hugging his teammates as they gave him a mid-match guard of honour…

According to BBC Final Score, the guard of honour was actually Terry’s own idea.

Surely warrants a yellow card for time-wasting, no?

This too…

A little embarrassing for all involved.

    I’m not a Chelsea fan, and as a neutral I don’t particularly like them. However I think this was well deserved for all he has achieved at the club.

    • Geraldo says:

      @Paul – indeed. Especially all his achievements in improving race relations both on and off the field.

      I’m on a work computer, therefore I am unable to express my feelings on this cretinous despicable individual for fear of disciplinary action.

  2. Josh says:

    Well… it’s all very John Terry. A great footballer but a shit human being, no?
    Anyway, he will always be remembered for that penalty in Moscow or Kiev or whatever.

  3. Murray says:

    The day a ref brandishes a yellow card to a departing club legend walking off the pitch in front of his home supporters for time wasting is the day a ref brandishes a yellow card to a player honoring the memory of a recently dead son for removing his shirt.

    If this was someone like Buffon, Pirlo, Totti etc Pies would be hailing it as a fantastic mark of respect rather than “embarrassing”

    Made me cringe to be honest

  6. Straight Dave says:

    Well, this was certainly the most John Terry way John Terry could’ve signed off at Chelsea. An odious human being aswell as a complete narcissist to boot.

    Straight Dave – indeed.

    It seems you could get odds on Terry being subbed on 26 minutes and a couple of people did place bets. This isn’t so much different from that rotund ‘keeper who scoffed a pie and had to resign.

    Odds are given on event (pie eating, 26th minute subbing).
    Player contrives event.
    People win bet.

    This guy is one of the very few people in world football that I completely dislike. Dirty in every aspect. I wouldn’t want him in my team, regardless of how good he was (10 years ago).
