John Terry gives critics short shrift over Chelsea send off

The Italian's impact at Stamford Bridge has been nothing short of remarkable after his appointment as Chelsea's new manager last summer. "It's a special relationship between me and the Chelsea fans". Apparently, if you've been around 22 years, you are above reproach for stopping a competitive Premier League fixture for three minutes to get a personal send off, having organised with the other team to stop the game for you.
