Only because he sells more newspapers than Owen or Defoe.

Because he gets praise from the media that he doesn't deserve but the
media has decided too wrap the flag of St George around him and feed
him to the fools.
Frankly I love it, I love seeing fools building their hopes and dreams
around this guy only to take a bucket ofice cold water whenever the
they meet any solid opposition.

I never said I didn't like him, in fact I've praised Terry for his
