Time for JT to step up!

Irrespective of the rights and wrongs of what has happened (both in terms of Jose's departure and Grant/Clarke's appointment) today there is a future ahead of us and that starts this weekend with a massive game and carries on with crucial CL games.

JT, as club captain, has a massive role to play in rallying the troops behind Grant and making sure we are in the best frame of mind possible for each and every one of the forthcoming games. I don't give a flying fig which players are 'Jose's allies' and which aren't - I expect each and every one of them to be fully committed to getting a result against Utd.

If they are feeling sorry for themselves then they should have a look around at the travelling Chelsea fans and realise who is most affected by the results of the games.

Agree but I expect JT to lead us as ever. Hes really going to be a key player now... more important then ever

well Terry always shows the performance of a true professional. He's going to have a hard test this weekend rallying up the team, but from what i've heard he's said some pretty inspirational pre-match pep talk. A win would be the best way to start a new era without Mourinho-sad to say- but we've beaten them before so let's hope we can do it again.

I agree. This game will be all about the ability of the players to be professional and focus on their jobs. If anybody can pull the team together it is JT.

I think Lamps and Drogs are out still. Anybody know if Pizarro is available again? I don't expect to see too many surprises in the lineup. I reckon it will be:

Cech

Belletti JT Ben Haim (Grant's Israeli connection) Cashley

SWP Essien Maka Malouda

Kalou Sheva

I'd prefer to see Joey given a chance instead of SWP or Malouda for this one I think. Also Pizarro instead of Kalou.

I can't predict the result under the circumstances. If the events of the last couple of days hadn't taken place I would have said a 1-1 draw but now I really don't know. If the players are still not mentally recovered it could be ugly.

JT has massive soldiers.

If I believe in anyone at my club it is he. I had some belief in Jose, some in Roman, some in others like Lamps.

To me JT is the rock, we build on him. Always.

(bloody hell I sound like Sean Bean icon_redface.gif )

And as an eternal optimist, although the departure of Jose has left me feeling like I lost a close relative, it is JT I am looking to now! This guy is my hero, and he bleeds blue. Forget bloody Grant - forget the Board who are doing their best to tear the heart out of our club, if anyone will get us through this game with Manure on Sunday, it will be JT.

I noticed on Tuesday, against Rosenborg, that JT's body language, his whole demeanor was wrong. He just didn't seem like our JT. Who knows - he probably had an inkling of what was wrong. Compare this to his performances for England in the last couple of weeks! All I want now is for our club to go on, and JT can do it. He can take the lads by the scruff of the neck and tell them that no matter what has happened, we are still the Chels, and we have to go out there at the Theatre of Nightmares on Sunday and prove it.

Agree with all that, and saw what you mean with JT in the week.
