Sources inform us that former England skipper John Terry has demanded a showdown with England boss Fabio Capello over the unwarranted publicity accorded to Tyneside gun nutter Raoul Moat.
It seems that Terry, who played no part in any disharmony between members of the England World Cup squad in South Africa, and is still Steven Gerrard's 'bezzy mate' became disconcerted that dangerous armed nutter, Raoul Moat, who has so far killed one man and left his ex-partner and an innocent police officer with horrific injuries, has been hogging the headlines.
Terry, currently on holiday in the USA (not with Vanessa Perroncel, we hasten to add,) is livid that the focus of the British press should be centred on a convicted common criminal.
It has been intimated that Terry thinks that it's all wrong, and he's demanding to know what Fabio Capello is going to do about it.
Terry and his family have never experienced dealings with the law, and have been model citizens throughout their time in the public eye, and JT thinks it's just wrong that a common nutter should grab the headlines while the England squad are trying harder than they did in the World Cup to hog the headlines with their extra-curricular activities.
When we confronted one of Fabio Capello's staff members with our information, he asked us:
"Who is Raoul Moat? Would he be any good in the back four?"
More as we get it.
