Look At Chelsea FC Captain John Terry And His Five FA Cups


Chelsea FC club captain John Terry has showed off his impressive FA Cup haul ahead of the Blues fixture with Scunthorpe United on Sunday.

John Terry is a very successful footballer by anyone’s standards. As Chelsea get ready for their FA Cup tie against Scunthorpe United tomorrow afternoon, the Englishman took an opportunity to reminisce about his past glories in an Instagram post.

Throughout his extensive career at Stamford Bridge, Terry has won four Premier League titles, three League Cups, one Europa League and the Champions League. The club great has also won the FA Cup a whopping five times.

The first of these triumphs came as long ago as the year 2000. Then a 19-year-old, Terry was an unused substitute as Chelsea defeated Aston Villa 1-0. Having said that, his four FA Cup appearances and one goal throughout the campaign more than warranted his medal.

There was a lengthy seven-year wait until the Englishman would again taste success in England’s premier cup competition. The Blues took on Manchester United in the final of the 2007 edition as football returned to a renovated and rebuilt Wembley Stadium. Didier Drogba (of course) would grab the all-important goal as his 116th minute strike gave Chelsea a 1-0 victory.

The West Londoners also won the League Cup in that year, handing Mourinho a double before his departure in the following campaign.

This would be the first of four FA Cup wins that Terry captained Chelsea to. In each final he played the whole match while Drogba scored a goal on each occasion as well.

The Blues would then be victorious in back-to-back years as a 2-1 defeat of Everton in 2009 preceded a 1-0 win over Portsmouth in the following season. His fifth medal overall would come in 2012 as Steven Gerrard and Liverpool were subjected to familiar disappointment.

Chelsea have been immensely successful in this competition over the last decade and will undoubtedly be targeting another triumphant run this season. This is especially valid as their hopes of winning alternative competitions have already been destroyed.

The club’s league position and form mean that they are struggling to reach the top four, let alone defend the Premier League title. Stoke City, meanwhile, dumped the Blues out of the Capital One Cup.

Furthermore, at this point in time, Champions League success would require a miracle arguably greater than that of 2012.

Consequently, many fans are expecting Guus Hiddink to prioritise the FA Cup as it represents the club’s only realistic shot at silverware. Given the nature of the competition and the luck of the draw, Chelsea may be able to progress to the latter stages with relative ease.
