Chelsea fans furious over Terry Team of the Year snub - 'Simply the best this season!'

John Terry With Medal

Some Chelsea fans are unhappy that John Terry has been overlooked for the team of the season.

As Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard collected their PFA Player of the Year Awards, the official team of the season was also released with an exclusion, which has upset several Blues supporters.

The back four include Southampton’s Luke Shaw, Vincent Kompany of Manchester City, Gary Cahill of Chelsea and Seamus Coleman of Everton.

An impressive defensive line but for one question; where’s Cahill’s teammate John Terry?

Terry has showcased everything you would expect from an experienced defender this season, playing a vital role in Chelsea’s Premier League position and their chances of winning the Champions League.

Chelsea fans reacted furiously to Terry’s snub from the side, with some suggesting that Kompany was only named in the eleven based on his reputation and the fact that City won the title over the 2011/2012 Premier League season.

The stats would suggest that in some areas, Chelsea fans do have a point with the standout stat being the fact Kompany has made two errors which have lead directly to goals whereas Terry hasn’t made any.

The Chelsea skipper is also ahead of Kompany in terms of aerial duels this season, suggesting he’s been more effective in terms of dealing with the long ball approach some sides adopt against the better quality teams in the Premier League.

The main challenge now for Chelsea is going to be getting a deal worked out for their captain, which keeps him at the club for the rest of his career.

It’s unclear at the moment whether that would be a longer deal or whether the Blues would switch him to a one-year rolling contract which is common for older players.

Jose Mourinho’s defensive reserves are well stocked but that doesn’t mean it’s time for Terry to move on, especially when he’s competitive against some of the best defenders in the Premier League.
