Weekends are bad and tiresome for john tery. After weeks yesterday accused of racial against Anton Ferdinand, today tetrry komedy actor should be in the middle of the field
He scored, he slipped, he lost heavily, In chronological order, Terry saw another old-gang member, Frank Lampard, put Chelsea in front, then Van Persie equalise.
