Career

Terry was voted best defender in the UEFA Champions League in both 2005 and 2008, the PFA Players' Player of the Year in 2005,and was included in the FIFPro World XI for four consecutive seasons, from 2005 to 2008.He was also named in the all-star squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the only English player to make the team.He wears the number 26 shirt for Chelsea.In 2007, he became the first captain to lift the FA Cup at the new Wembley Stadium in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester United, and also the first player to score a full international goal there, scoring a header in England’s 1-1 draw with Brazil.However, the 2007-08 season saw Terry and Chelsea miss out on three trophies, losing the League Cup Final to Tottenham Hotspur and Premier League and UEFA Champions League to Manchester United with Terry missing a penalty in the Champions League final shootout, sending it to sudden death. Had he scored, the European Cup would have been secured for Chelsea.After the final in Moscow, teammate Frank Lampard described Terry as "a man's man".

Style of Play

One half of what is arguably the best defensive partnership in the Premier League. John Terry is a man of total commitment and stereotypical English qualities. His popularity in world football is a testimony to this alone, and you'll frequently see him with a bleeding head whilst continually playing. He is the current "Terry Butcher character" in Premier League football, and would be sorely missed if he left. His partnership with Carvalho is utterly superb, people say that this is because of Terry's commanding nature. That's partly it, but I'd also point out that they play to each other's skills. Carvalho is the technically skilled, pacy centre back who can distribute play. John Terry is the strong, determined defender who often scores last ditch headers. And it's because of this ideaology, this ying-and-yang, that they are so successful. If you look at Manchester United's current defence, you can see with this Vidic and Ferdinand. But if we look at Arsenal, who are accused of being defensively frail, you'll see that Gallas and Toure both have very similar qualities. Coincidence?
