Worth remembering what HOWARD RIDDLE, SENIOR DISTRICT JUDGE (CHIEF MAGISTRATE) IN THE WESTMINSTER MAGISTRATES’ COURT said about corroborating evidence given by a Chelsea player:
“Mr Cole gives corroborating (although far from compelling corroborating) evidence on this point.” LINK
Now then what was it the FA said about the evidence provided to them?
They found Cole, who changed his witness statement after the FA first interviewed him about the incident, to have been unreliable and to have amended the statement only to give Terry a stronger defence. LINK
Chelsea seem to have had a rehearsal or two just recently. Makes you wonder.
