15 years since Terry turned goalie v Reading — Chelsea fans share memories of iconic moment
Both Petr Cech and Carlo Cudicini picked up injuries so the centre-back put on the gloves and stepped in between the sticks.
Terry kept a clean sheet, with Chelsea winning the game 1-0.
And here is what Chelsea fans on Reddit are saying about the incident now, 15 years after it happened.
Merudiin: “I remember sitting on the floor just eyes fixed to the tele and in complete awe of what was
“Was so frightened for Cech and then seeing JT step up was just unreal. Words can’t describe those emotions as a kid.”
Expected_Toulouse_: “This was such an horrific game to watch, to see how Petr Cech went down after such a disgusting challenge from Stephen Hunt, think many of us were worried for his life.”
twomanyfaces10: “Remember watching this game as a wee kid. Equal parts iconic and horrifying”
lalaladylvr: “I remember the match. This moment demonstrated JT’s leadership and bravery in stepping up for the team. Did alright as I recall.”
“The first irrational thought to go through my mind when Petr went down and didn’t move was Hunt had better go find a very small hole to hide in because if he just killed Petr with that crap move he’s going to be the next Jimmy Hoffa. No one will ever find the body.
