For the past two years, John Terry – Chelsea’s ‘never say die’ Captain has worked with us at King of Shaves (a ‘Vauxhall Conference League’ brand compared with billion dollar Gillette) to bring stature to our brand, lead our ‘Young Blades’ sporting bursary and a lot more
John’s had a torrid year – as England captain, he was injured when they were knocked out of the Euro 2008 and then suffered an extremely bad injury that sidelined him for crucial fixtures over Christmas and early 2008.
Whether you support Chelsea or not, many had written them off with the departure of ‘The Chosen One’, however, they have fought like lions, and find themselves capable of being not just the best in the UK, but the best in Europe too, after their stunning win over Liverpool last night.
JT – whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting quite a few times now – leads them, and hopefully his finest hour beckons. The tantalising glimpse of lifting not just the Premiership trophy (for the third time) but also being Champions of Europe.
Winning is a team effort, but winning also needs inspiring leadership. So, JT, you certainly have my best wishes and fingers crossed for the final games of this season – remember…
“Be the first to say we can, when others say we can’t…be one step ahead…be the best you can be…be a King – and Win!
