And that, ladies and gentlemen, is it for a busy weekend of football.

But fear not... we'll be cranking up the live text for transfer window shenanigans tomorrow.

07:00 GMT. Bright and early, folks.

See you then.

FA Cup fifth round draw

FA Cup

Before we log off for the night, let me remind you of tonight's FA Cup draw. The JT Road to Wembley begins with a tricky tie against Manchester City...

Get Involved


Gregory Mandapat: If John Terry goes to MLS, he could link up with Didier Drogba in Montreal, or Frank Lampard and David Villa at NYCFC...

From the press box

Wouldn't be surprised to see John Terry play in China, after his 'personal tour' there last year & would also allow him to do Xmas Euro loan

Master of the air

Heading off to the pub tonight? Here's a JT stat to put in your sky rocket for an opportune moment.

Of players with 25+ Premier League goals, he has the highest headed goals percentage (67.5%). Tim Cahill is second on that list (55.4%), Kenwyne Jones is third (55%) and Duncan Ferguson fourth (52.9%).

John Southworth: It's a shame Terry can't finish his career at Chelsea and be a one club man as in today's game it won't happen much if ever.

Happier days

But he did manage to lift the Champions League trophy in 2012. He missed the game because of suspension... but that wasn't going to stop John getting in his kit and joining in the celebrations.

Misery in Moscow

There have been plenty of highs in John Terry's playing career, but slipping while taking a crucial penalty in the 2008 Champions League final in Moscow is among the memories he'd like to forget most.

Quiz answer

Earlier, I asked who JT's first Chelsea goal was against.

Did you get it? The correct answer is Gillingham. In the FA Cup in 2000.

The other scorers that day? Tore-Andre Flo, George Weah, Gianfranco Zola and Jody Morris.

Wale ibraheem: The way Chelsea ease out their legends is embarrassing. Look at Maldini, Zanetti, and Del Piero. Terry still has it.

477 not out (until May!)

Another quality JT stat, courtesy of our friends at Opta, is that only four other players have appeared more times than he has for one single club in the Premier League.

The list is: Giggs 632, Carragher 508, Gerrard 504, Scholes 499, Terry 477.

Out on his own

Check out these Twitter trends at the moment. Do you reckon, as a nation, we love our football?


'FA Cup final would be a great send off'

BBC Radio 5 Live

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright on BBC Radio 5 live: "He still has something in him, he will still be able to help someone. I would be delighted for John Terry if his last game would be in the FA Cup final."

Jonny Duchezeau: So Ivanovic gets a new contract but Terry doesn't? And to think he will be Chelsea captain. Makes me feel pretty sick.

Richard Thiardt: It's Frank Lampard X 100 all over again.

JT quiz question...

A bonus point for anyone who can name the team JT scored his first Chelsea goal against...

Daniel Hykin: To not give JT a contract a season after playing every minute seems crazy! He's still good enough & important in dressing room.

Heading to the MLS?

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer

"As with the likes of Gerrard and Carragher, don't see John Terry anywhere else in England other than Chelsea. US beckons."

No fairytale for JT

Here's some John Terry quotes, which have been published in the Mirror: "They said that when the new manager comes in, things might change. It’s a no at the minute. I needed to know now like I have done every January and sometimes it takes a couple of months to get done.

"It’s not going to be a fairytale ending, I’m not going to retire at Chelsea. It’s going to be elsewhere which it took me a couple of days to get over.

"But, I knew before the Arsenal game and my performance isn’t going to change - the way I train, what I give for the club. I want to give everything and finish on a high."

More on that here.

'Sad day for Chelsea'

BBC Radio 5 Live

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright on BBC Radio 5 live: "I can John Terry him going across to America and playing for someone like LA Galaxy but it is a sad day for Chelsea fans. A very sad day."

Terry to leave Chelsea

JT has made more than 500 appearances for Chelsea, winning four Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, the Champions League and the Europa League.

Terry to leave Chelsea

John Terry made his Chelsea debut back in October 1998, in a month when the likes of Billie Piper and B*Witched were topping the UK music charts.

That's 18 years at one club. A Chelsea legend.

What do you make of that, Chelsea fans? Will JT be heading Stateside?

'Terry to leave Chelsea'

John Terry has just said that Chelsea will not renew his contract. He does not want to join another Eng club but will keep playing

Berahino deal on Monday?

As we mentioned earlier, Newcastle could be set to grease the TDD merry-go-round by lumping 21 big ones into West Brom's bank account for Saido Berahino.

Thauvin leaves Newcastle

Meanwhile, Newcastle winger Florian Thauvin has rejoined Marseille on loan until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old only joined the Magpies from Marseille last August on a five-year contract for a reported £12m.

"There is no option for purchase within the deal, so Thauvin will return to Newcastle at the end of the loan," said a statement on the Newcastle website.

No Musa signing for Foxes

Oluwashina Okeleji

BBC Sport, Nigeria

Ahmed Musa

"CSKA Moscow will not sell striker Ahmed Musa in this transfer window.

"The Russian club turned down a fourth bid from Leicester City of $26.5m (£18.7m) for the Nigerian forward last week, which was an improvement on the original offer of $21.6m (£15.1m).

"The 23-year-old was believed to be open to a move to the Premier League leaders.

"However, CSKA, who are top of the Russian league, want the forward to stay until at least the summer."

Anyway, enough of bellies... what about tomorrow's transfer deadline day?

Chelsea v Man City

This was an Aston Villa fan during his side's 4-0 loss to Manchester City yesterday.

Goodness knows what he'd have done if he knew they'd avoided an away trip to Chelsea.

Willian's fine...

Some injury news for Chelsea fans... Guus Hiddink tells the media that he has no big worries over the injury Willian suffered late in the game. It was just a case of somebody standing on the Brazilian's foot.

Manager reaction

MK Dons 1-5 Chelsea

Why did Hazard take the penalty? "They decided themselves because we have this hierarchy of the penalties. Oscar gave it to Eden as everyone knows he has not scored for a long time."

Why has form changed since you arrived? "What I asked in the beginning is when they made the contribution to be champions last year? I wanted the contribution they did then. I asked the players 'what did you do? Let's try to go back to what your basic skills are.'"

Graeme Le Saux

Match of the Day

"The fact we will see one of the big teams (Chelsea or Man City) knocked out gives some others hope."

Draw reaction


Steve Smith: London teams at home; Lancashire teams away - how bizarre!

Allan Abbas: Arsenal vs Hull City in the FA Cup is a better love story than Twilight. Third year in a row now.

Tim Woodhouse: Wow! Salop v Man Utd. Would have preferred it to be away but not complaining...!

'I like my players to have smiles on their faces'

MK Dons 1-5 Chelsea

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink speaks to BBC Sport: "We are delighted. The concentration against the big teams is always high but these games you have to be well prepared mentally. They got even but we reacted very well."

On Oscar's display: "Oscar is playing with a smile on his face and that's what I like with the players when they know their obligations and they do it."
