    John Terry Court Case

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/15548056.stm
    What do you people think.. Is FA stretching this topic too far without any reason or was it Terry's mistake which got himself involved in this serious issue?
    It's not looking good at all. Don't know how long will this continue.. :S

    I trust Terry, I think this issue will be resolved soon. FA and the police will have to do their job and investigate, but I doubt Terry will be in trouble.

    Yes that is a matter to worry about. Terry might be in trouble.

    Ferdinand has kept quiet and Terry has backings of Ivanovic so I think its ok. Hate to see him lose his captain armband though, because he is a good captain.

    As Luiz Suarez is also involved in another racism matter, i.e more than one player under the spotlight, so the Court might take a big action.

    Fixed it for you:

    Anton Ferdinand 'can cope' with John Terry rematch

    Danny Gabbidon has revealed Anton Ferdinand can't wait to face *Chelsea in 10 days' time and says his Queens Park Rangers team-mate will handle his showdown with John Terry.

    Rangers beat MK Dons 1-0 in last night's FA Cup replay to set up a potentially fiery clash against the Blues with Terry set to return to Loftus Road for the first time since he was accused of racially abusing Ferdinand.

    The fourth-round tie on January 28 comes just four days before Terry will appear at West London Magistrates Court over the alleged incident during the League meeting between the clubs in October.

    Terry denies the allegations but is bound to face a hostile reception from the home fans should Andre Villas-Boas select him.

    Ferdinand has been subjected to death threats since the race row flared up but will not hesitate to make himself available for the tie.

    Although Gabbidon knows intense interest in the game will make it hard for Ferdinand, he believes his fellow centre-half will rise to the challenge.
    Gabbidon said: "Of course he will want to play. He loves his football and wants to play in every game. He will want to go out and show what he can do. When he played against them the last time he was one of the best players on the pitch as we beat them 1-0 and he will want to show that again.

    "There is going to be a lot of talk about what happened leading up to the game and it is maybe going to be a little more difficult for him than the rest of us.

    "It will be different for Anton because he is the one involved in it but, hopefully, he will have his head on his game and perform well. He has the character to do that and is an experienced player.

    "It can be tough at times when everyone is talking about it and your family is getting threats from people. It's not nice but he is a very level-headed guy and will want to let his football do the talking."

    Gabbidon confirmed the furore over the case did initially affect the former West Ham defender's form.

    He said: "When it first happened, the first few games after that he wasn't himself but he realises now he's come back and he will want to put in a good performance.

    "We didn't talk about it too much [after it happened]. Everyone knows what went on and we were all a bit shocked by it. You try to get on with things as quickly as possible and you don't want to keep bringing it up too much to him. We were all upset for him but we tried to move on quickly."

    Gabbidon, whose first goal for seven years was enough to beat the MK Dons, insists QPR's match against Wigan in the Premier League on Saturday is more of a priority than winning against their west London rivals. He said: "I don't really want to think about Chelsea too much because we have a massive game against Wigan first."

    Meanwhile, Mark Hughes is not sure Alex will complete a 3.5million move despite holding talks with the Chelsea defender. The Rangers boss said: "It's a big decision for him and things have to fall into place to get these kind of players over the line."

    It's official. You're a star! I've just been farting about copying and pasting, and I come back to put it in and find you've done it. Thank you Hutch you're brilliant!

    So.. do you think JT should be selected for the game against QPR? Would it be more tactful to give him a week off, or would it be ducking the issue? What do people think?

    Play him, heck you already have a player on your team in your opponents head, why would you not take advantage of this and play him.... Not to mention qpr has Alex now, which really doesnt do them a whole lot, but I would definatly start JT.

    Yes, that is one point of view. I wonder what others think. Does anyone think he should be rested to avoid further potential confrontation before the trial?

    I mean if you did rest him, would you give Cahill his first start? I guess it's just me but I would see you sitting JT as allowing this situation to get the better of your team... I mean this would be you changing AVB's coaching scheme to compensate for these accusations... unless he truly needed the rest that of course..

    This is my opinion obviously, but I coach a high school I used to play soccer for, and we have a ruff conference since we are a coastal school, which generally pulls more soccer talent than American football talent, but I constantly have conflicts especially when we get in conference tournaments... My philosophy when I played was never play scared, and I carried that over to coaching... This always makes my decisions easier, play the best avalible players who have earned thier starting roles, and never let another teams trash talk or intimidation tactics get in the way of that... Now if this is obviously getting in my players head, or my team doesn't match up well, obviously you have to make changes accordingly... Man I wish I could bring that team to England to a real football experience.... It's hard to have high assperations about "soccer" as we call it over here, when the high paying sports are NFL,MLB,and NBA...

    Yes, I agree with you. I think he should play because otherwise we lay oursleves open to accusations of being "chicken" but I was interested in hearing what other people thought. Obviously they don;t! Thanks for answering so fully. It makes for a much more interesting forum when people exchange opinions.

    rumor mill is saying that QPR has suggested adding extra police for the Chelsea game in anticipation of the tension that is going to be present in the match because of the JT court hearing...who knows maybe this could effect JT in a negative way, maybe there is a benefit for sitting JT for that game.... i don't think it is a "being a chicken" issue as much as it is not letting another team get in the way of you playing the best man for he job...would like to here from someone on why benching him would be a benefit, cause other than not getting him into more trouble, i just dont see one.

    Im sure JT will start. If he doesn't it can only get worse.
    Then again, would Ferdinand start for QPR?

    i would image Ferdinand will start...but i agree that JT not starting is the wrong way to handle this situation... play him and in all likely hood, nothing will happen, JT is a professional who, im sure, can handle himself through one match and perform on his level... he's not a 5 year old, he has a degree of discipline that has allowed for him to have a successful career, i think he will understand the gravity of the situation and not do anything to mess things up worse than they are.

    Security will be very tight, and I think the cameras will be focused mainly on JT.

    Well now that's another interesting question. What if BOTH players were rested to avoid confrontation?
