Stop Press…

1 02 2010

I was going to write a piece entitled “Playing the Field” about the recent revelations into John Terry’s life. But I’m not that sure I want to write something on which countless reporters have gorged themselves in the past couple of days, or something which all forms of tv punditry have dined out on.

There are but two things I have to say on the matter. Firstly, it’s a private affair. It is something John Terry and Wayne Bridge are going to have to deal with. Secondly, the ‘proper’ thing for Terry to do is to relinquish the England captaincy. Personally I think Steven Gerrard should have been made captain in the first place, but that’s neither here nor there. Terry has to be seen as a role model for young people. As such, he has to demonstrate his own ability to hold his hands up and say sorry, and then show that he can move on, move forward and not let it affect his professional life. Part of this process, I feel, is giving up the captaincy.
