Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

More good stuff from JT, this time on the official site:


Following a great performance personally at White Hart Lane, John Terry was naturally disappointed a good chance for a win went begging - but was still satisfied with a much improved team display.

The defence was breached early in the game but then stood strong as the team took control of much of the game. The final possession statistics were 58 per cent in Chelsea's favour and that was converted into one Didier Drogba goal and one late penalty won, unfortunately saved from the Ivorian.

'I thought we fully deserved to win the game,' declared Terry after the final whistle.

'Especially second half we dominated. Spurs started very well, got the goal and made it difficult at times but that was more like the Chelsea we all know.

'Playing like we did the second half, things are back to normal. The hunger, the spirit, the determination - we pressed a lot better, especially in the second half and that is what we want from a Chelsea side.

'You can lose or draw games, I think the fans appreciate that, but it is when they don't see the passion that it hurts.'

The hard-won point this weekend will mean little if Terry and his team-mates don't follow it up with a good result against Manchester United next Sunday.A win then will mean the title challenge is properly back on track.

'I've never doubted the players, never doubted the manager, never doubted the football club,' stated Terry.

'Nothing much has changed from last year when we won the Double and let's not forget that. We were the best team by a long way and at the moment no team has hit their top form. If we can do that over the Christmas period we have a very good chance.

'The last couple of weeks we would all admit that some of the passion for no one reason was not there but we have it back now.

'Hopefully the game on Monday night between Man United and Arsenal will be a draw, that will suit us. Then we have got Man United to come to the Bridge and we go away to the Emirates which is always tough, but things are looking up.'

It would be foolish to write us off. Sure, we're in a poor position at the moment, but we dominated the scum (and frankly should have had all three points) and with Lampard back there is no reason why we can't go on another winning streak.

Arsenal are as inconsistent and incomplete as ever.

Man Utd, while in a good position now, have yet to play their two main title rivals. For all the talk of us having an easy start, it's surprising (although not really I suppose) that this hasn't been picked up on. It's not inconceivable that they get 0 points out of their next two games, and considering they've barely surpassed average in the majority of their games this season...

We generally play our best football in the spring. That, coupled with the promise of new players, should they be deemed necessary, in the January transfer window, I'm feeling pretty optimistic.
