More bad news for Chelsea today as under-siege club captain John Terry was ruled out for up to two weeks with a groin strain.
Tempers became frayed and club officials grew exasperated as a horde of reporters who don't usually cover football matches asked a lot of strange seemingly unrelated questions as to the nature of the injury.
One reporter asked if Terry's injury had been sustained while he was 'in the saddle'? A strange question considering that Terry is not renowned for equestrianism.
When another reporter asked if JT had snagged his bollocks on the bedpost one Chelsea official went ballistic, foaming at the mouth and snarling like a rabid dog that Terry had strained his groin in the Arsenal game (which Chelsea won 2-0) by twisting unnaturally while trying to intercept a loose ball from Ashley Cole.
Chelsea officials stormed out of the press conference as hapless reporters - undoubtedly a filthy minded majority - doubled up in hysterical laughter, obviously tickled pink by the words 'John Terry,' 'Ashley Cole,' 'Loose balls,' and 'groin strain' all in the same sentence.
One described the club statement as "Priceless."
More I we dream it up!
