John Terry Odds-On to Lose England Captaincy

Paddy Power have made John Terry odds-on to lose his England captaincy following the revelations of his private life over the weekend.

The English FA took their time to make an announcement, in which they made a good decision to leave it down to the manager, Fabio Capello.

Fabio Capello took 4 games and 5 players before deciding John Terry would be the captain of the England national team back in August 2008. Terry lead England to victory in a friendly over Germany at the end of that year, scoring the winner himself.

John Terry put all his troubles behind him at the weekend, the day after the news made the headlines as he scored an 82nd minute winner for at Burnley on Saturday. He will play at Hull tomorrow night too as he looks to take Chelsea 4 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

This was not the first time Terry or his family have put a negative image on the England captain. Incidents in clubs and parent arrests have been part of his past. And none of those had a negative effect on the field. Saturday's performance came as no surprise to me. Stripping him of his England captain 4 months before the World Cup was be a disruption that the English media would love. That means it would be a bad story for our national team. He's a true leader on the field and a very talented defender.
