Not too surprised by his decision. Arguably the best course of action(doesn't mean he's guilty!) and time to move on from this issue. His 4-game ban means he will definitely play against Shakhtar next week.

This is rather farcical. Media making noise about the club keeping quiet about the punishment on Terry.

Football equality group Kick It Out have criticised Chelsea over their decision to keep the punishment of John Terry secret.

After the Chelsea captain announced that he would not be appealing the four-match ban and £220,000 fine handed to him by the FA for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, his club said that they had taken "further disciplinary action" against Terry, but would not be revealing the details due to club policy.

Lord Herman Ousley, chairman of Kick It Out, said that he believed the stance would damage the club in the eyes of the public, who wanted to see the measures they would take.

"I believe Chelsea need to be open about the action they have taken," Lord Ousley stated.

"A lot of people will be dissatisfied that Chelsea have not been much more up front about the standards they set and the values they have.

"If they are not prepared to say, it will further damage the trust of those people who still have suspicions about Chelsea's sincerity in dealing with this matter.

"A lot of people will be dissatisfied that Chelsea have not been much more up front about the standards they set and the values they have.

"If they are not prepared to say, it will further damage the trust of those people who still have suspicions about Chelsea's sincerity in dealing with this matter.

"I do welcome that they have said, but they need to be saying more and doing more if they are going to win back the confidence of people who have lost trust in them rather than to sit back and be silent."

Saw this earlier..

Adrian Mutu, tested positive for a banned substance: Sacked.

Youth team player Jacob Mellis, set off a smoke grenade at the training ground: Sacked.

John Terry, found guilty of racist language by the FA: 'Oh, our disciplinary processes are always confidential.'

Food for thought?

NO ...there has been a concerted campaign by those with a political agenda ,,, Terry deserves the support from the Clubs and the fans

AND from fair minded people. It seems to have been ignored that he was getting personal abuse from Anton Ferdinand during the game

No. What people are missing is that John Terry was NOT found guilty of racially abusing Ferdinand. He was found guilt of using racial terms in an unknown context. Moreover, the whole issue was made this big just because it was JT. Players use abusive language ion the pitch all the time. Just look at what Ferdinand admitted to have said in court. The FA only charged Terry to save their face; if they cared about the image of the game they would have charged Anton as well.

If I'm honest I'm sick to the back teeth of all this. He's been found not guilty by a court of law, the agenda to have him punished by certain individuals has bordered on obsessive. It was farcical, the club and JT want to put this to bed and get on with playing football. Even if he had appealed the decision it's almost certain the corrupt FA wouldn't back down and possibly extend the ban.

We're moving on, we've a title to win......Team Terry - deal with it !!!

This!!!

Remember:

1) Mutu was convicted for possession (warning IIRC)

2) grenade boy discharged a weapon in a public place

They are NOT one of the same thing!

If you get convicted by the police, then that becomes 'public knowledge'

As JT was found not guilty and only a Kangaroo court found him guilty, there is no requirement to disclose.

Also Bosnich was sacked for Cocaine use too!!!

so the next time you hear a rapper on MTV use the N word will they also be charged by the FA,if you get my angle here

Lol would love us to get to FA cup final and release a RAP song with the word 'black labrador from the Dam Busters film' (sorry English reference)...

I know Zolayes will get that :) :) :)

Had Terry been playing for Man United and this happened, the English media wouldn't be condemning them for not revealing the punishment to the public.

"Di matteo refuses to comment whether JT will remain as chelsea captain".

He better remain as chelsea captain. If our own club takes the captaincy away from him i will be incredibly pissed off. People need to stop making a mountain out of a mole hill. Move on... serbia was fined 16k, and that was actual racism, not an apparant heat of the moment comment.

CAPTAIN LEADER LEGEND AND ALWAYS WILL BE.
