Chelsea skipper John Terry will miss Sunday`s Carling Cup final after suffering damage to an ankle ligament in Chelsea`s 1-1 draw with Porto on Wednesday (snigger).

Terry has only recently returned after having keyhole surgery on his back but the centre-half lasted only 11 minutes against Porto in the Champions League.

He joins Boulahrouz, Robben, Joe Cole and Judas Cole on the injury list for Sunday`s game. No doubt that should Arsenal win on Sunday, despite having half a dozen kids on the pitch, Chelsea fans and Mourniho will play the injury card.

Let`s not get ahead of ourselves though Gooners.

Speaking after Chelsea`s match Maureen had this to say: ‘We are not in an easy situation. I do not know when John Terry will be back, but I am cool about it.

‘It is unbelievable because of the injuries we keep getting. We don’t have Khalid Boulahrouz and we don’t have John Terry. We have one central defender – Ricardo Carvalho.”

Well that`s what you get for letting Billy Gallas and Robert Huth go in the summer and not replacing them.

As a great man once said “I pity the fool”.

  • Robben injured? I didn’t know about that one. On an extra note, just football players in general, I don’t like it when they get injured. Puts a damper on everything.

  • Let Maureen blame it on injuries when they lose – we all know he messed up with his transfers. On the other hand, can he possibly get even more arrogant when they win?

  • I dont care if Gavin Peacock and Mark Stein (those were Chelsea players b4 you had money for all you ‘new’ Chelski fans) play centre back I just wanna win!

  • Where does one get information about the number of assists made;

    Would love to know who actually leads in assists; Rosicky, Cesc, Hleb, Adebayor, Henry?

    On topic. Arsenal will win 3 -1

  • TeamSpirit, i think it’s cesc who has most assists. And Robben injure? first I’d heard about that one… »»Arsene knows««

  • i belive we shud easily win…there defensive n 4 dat matter der entire team depends on JT…so it will be glory 4 us as our young guns lift da carling cup….

  • if robben and terry arent playing, it should make for an even contest even with our kids playing as they will also have to play more squad players as many of their first team stars are out injured. the game will be extremely competitive now, you can’t pick one team as the favourate to win it, but my money is always on THE ARSENAL :)..

  • how long is he out? any danger of missing the qf against Spurs (2.5 weeks away) cos they are seriously vulnerable without him!

  • A pity, coz I would have liked us to have played a full strength chelsea team. It will be invaluable experience for the kids, though I fancy our chances. The CC team has shown us what they can do.

  • Slightly away from topic, but did anyone see the 1st goal by Porto last night? It was deflected, off Fat Frank into goal. Delicious irony is what i call it :).

  • I noticed that prits. Very funny. I was holding my breath in anticipation of Moaninho bemoaning their bad luck at conceding a deflected goal after the game:)

  • TeamSpirit, in the league Fabregas is top of the assists table with 10, Van Persie is the next Arsenal player with 6, Henry 5, Walcott 4, Eboue 3, Hleb 3, Adebayor 2, Flamini 2…etc These are just for the league though, if you want to see the full stats for the league just visit http://stats.premierleague.com
