Chelsea’s Own Players Begin To Question A Strangely Self-Destructive Summer

The fallout from Chelsea’s home defeat to Burnley to open their Premier League title campaign has been swift. In fact, you could say the situation had been pretty neatly summed up after the opening 43 minutes at Stamford Bridge. 

With Gary Cahill sent off, Burnley had shocked the world by cruising to a 3-0 lead behind a brace from Welsh striker Sam Vokes, a player more used to terrorizing Championship defenses than the reigning English champions.

John Terry Transfer Gives Millennials and Baby Boomers Another Thing to Fight About

Summer is high-time for transfers and this might just be the most high-profile one yet. There's a lot to discuss in terms of the move itself — one of the biggest names in English football, John Terry, finishing out his career with Championship side Aston Villa.

However, much of the yesterday's buzz focused on the bizarre/unique/amusing way the club chose to deliver the news.

11 Of The Most Hilariously Bizarre Substitutions In Soccer History

When it comes to the heart-stopping, heartfelt and hilarious moments we love about soccer, we tend to focus on what unfolds on the pitch.

John Terry Says He Doesn't Care About Criticism Of His Chelsea Send-Off

Terry arranged his own substitution in the 26th minute of Chelsea's final match of the season — the final match of Terry's Chelsea career — because he wanted to honor himself by having the fans honor him. Terry was made fun of for this frivolous situation (The other players formed an honor guard as he left the stadium! Really!), but he is not mad at all.

John Terry Awards Himself A Guard Of Honor While Luis Enrique Bows Out The Back Door

The premeditated pomp and choreographed farewell that John Terry bid Chelsea supporters at Stamford Bridge on Sunday stood in stark contrast to Luis Enrique’s final match at the Camp Nou. While the feel-good factor in the southwest of London as compared to the tension-riddled atmosphere at the Camp Nou could go someway towards explaining these divergent going away parties, the real variation was really only in the respective men of honor.

John Terry To Leave Chelsea This Summer And Defend Resolutely Somewhere Else

After over two decades of flinging himself at the ball in the blue of Chelsea and winning a lot of trophies, John Terry has announced his decision to leave the club at the end of the season. Terry is synonymous with Chelsea’s rise to English and continental dominance as well providing that bit of assholery that every successful club needs. 

JT, as he’s called by those in the know, isn’t done defending yet, though. His high and tight haircut and high socks could be making their way to resolutely defending a club near you.
