Terry Should Concentrate On His Own Performances

Terry Should Concentrate On His Own Performances

John Terry believes Manchester United have reached their peak during the last two seasons. Well, he must know it as he most certainly hasn't.

But does he have a point? Let's see what he had to say.

'I don't think they have got another level to go to,' he said.

'They've had a lot of players in their team who have hit the peak of their form in the last two years.'

'Rio's been awesome. Ronaldo's been unbelievable. I don't think we'll ever see that again. Rooney, Tevez, Giggs at his age - they've all been fantastic.'


Well, saying that Rio and Ronaldo have room to improve would be plain daft - I know it full well that they've been playing in the form of their lives. Rooney and Tevez, on the other hand... well, suffice to say that they should score more, especially our young Englishman.

But what does Terry have to do with it? I mean, does he have nothing better to do? Refine his penalty-taking technique, for example? HE certainly hasn't been at his peak for the past two seasons - or if he has, then we should lose little sleep over the threat of Chelsea...

Merlin's right. Is your memory that short? Fergie started it just lust week. Maybe he should concentrate on his own team then?

While I think Terry’s comments pointless and even erroneous, as has been mentioned, it was a direct response to SAF’s comments so it has everything to do with him. Pointless pre season mind games to help fill he papers if you ask me.

Sounds a bit like double standards to me. So its ok for your manager to come out with similar guff?

Fergie NEVER said Chelsea were past their best. But then again when you look at our team and Chelsea's, John Terry just sounds stupid. You look at Chelsea team of Anelka, Drogba, Deco, Lampard, Essien, Joe Cole, Ballack, SWP and compare them with Rooney, Ronaldo, Tevez, Nani, Anderson, Scholes, Carrick, Hargreaves and tell me which set of players already look peaked???

Terry might not have been at his best the last 2 seasons but he has had 2 very disrupted seasons with injuries and so forth. This year he and the team are all fresh and ready to take the PL by storm. Gonna be a good battle. Watch out for the gooners too, people have seemed to have forgotten about them again

I for one am lovign the fact everyone in the media has been suckered into this whole "new-start" ***** Chelsea have pumped into their team. It will make it all the more pleasing then they crash and burn...again. Oh, as for peaking - im not surte how a team with an average age of nearly 30 can say they havent peaked whereas a team with players liek Ronaldo, Rooney, Nani, Anderson etc have. Other than that Di Santo guy (who wont get a game) and the amazingly crap pair of kalou and mikel - what chelsea players are under the age of 25?

Totally agree with Forever United: I looked at Terry's comments and couldn't believe it. United - reached their peak??? Well, yes, in terms of trophies, last season was pretty impressive, but our team is one of the youngest in the team, and there are plenty of players who are far from their peak. Rooney hasn't hit anything like his best form these past two seasons down to various things - mainly injury, and if he does really well this season, Terry'll be eating his words. Tevez is only really settling into the United team, and his partnership with Rooney is just starting to come good. He did pretty well last season, but he's had a good rest after he grew, and pre-season form promises a good season. Ronaldo's got a lot to prove to United fans, and a new striker (such as Berbatov) will have to claim his place in the team and shoudl score plenty of goals. And that's only four players... each United player has something to prove, and apart from the older players (van der Sar, Neville, Giggs, Scholes etc) they are mainly far from their peak. And the older ones never know whether this will be their last season, and last shot at a trophy, so will be giving it their best.
