The John Terry slip: Japanese style (Video)

During the 2011-2012 season Arsenal visited Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea in what turned out to be a thrilling eight goal classic.

It was one of those games when people drag out that old ‘great advert for the Premier League’ to describe it.

Robin van Persie scored a hat-trick, Juan Mata scored a 25 yard screamer and Theo Walcott showed why he is the best in the Premier League at bouncing off the floor and scoring a goal (see also Arsenal’s 7-3 win vs Newcastle from this past season).

The game will always be remembered for John Terry’s hilarious slip when trying to pass the ball back to his goalkeeper. It allowed van Persie to have a free run at Cech where he simply took the ball round him to give Arsenal a 4-3 lead late in the game, a lead they would not relinquish.

That kind of cock up really couldn’t have happened to nicer bloke than England’s leader John Terry and he has a history of falling on his arse at pivotal moments. If I remember correctly there was a pretty costly fall whilst taking a penalty during a Champions League final.

Anyway, here is a Japanese player (from the J-League I am presuming) who does his very best to emulate Terry and his extremely funny error.
