Think about it. You are a footballer who has loyally remained with the club you love all your career. With one penalty kick, you can clinch the European Champions League for the first time in the club's history.
You miss. All you have to look forward to is picking up £150,000 a week for the next ten years, plus endorsements and bonuses, plus a hefty payment to appear in a witty pizza commercial any time you fancy it. Going home to a beautiful wife and kids can only provide so much solace.
And just when you are at your lowest ebb, along comes a message of support from the country's worst-ever Prime Minister. Broon has apparently told Terry that he is 'an inspiration' and 'a natural leader'. Just like... who, exactly? Who else does Broon know that fits those descriptions? No one in his Cabinet, for sure. At least Broon doesn't describe him as 'a winner'. That would be taking it too far.
