I have never, ever thought to myself, god, I wish we had John Terry in our team. Never.
That isn't going to change now.

Glad to see he's addressing the issue of pace in our defence by signing essentially a racist oak tree.

He's the very last person I'd want to see playing for us, and I include Carol Decker in that. He won't even be effective. This is a dreadful idea.

You bastard!! What the fuck has Carol ever done to you? She'd make a cracking centre half. And possibly be slightly more welcome than JT!!


Coincidentally, along with Carol Decker John Terry also has the possible option of having China in his hand.

This is probably the first player we have gone for that Xia has actually heard of, so can understand him acting like a child loaded up on E numbers. 

Or maybe that's just his usual twitter persona.

It was a scenario discussed on the other thread: how would we feel if another Championship club went for him.   Personally, I'd be delighted if Hull or Slumberland signed him. Imagine even a semi fit Hogan or Kodjia running at a backline containing either Terry and Dawson or Terry and O'Shea. 

That and the Blackcats landing Tony Adams as manager (are they really that mental) would illustrate some poor sods really do have it worse.

It's stating the obvious, but to do well next season and finish top two we are going to have to be a good team.  Average>above average results and performances might just be enough to squeak top 6, if some of the other big hitters take a season off.  But for automatic promotion we will need to dominate a league campaign in a way we haven't managed since 1992/93. 

You don't achieve that by making a bit part and divisive figure your highest paid player. Not if you value team morale. To address the fuckton of issues we have had since 2010, we need to learn from past mistakes.  But this sort of move demonstrates we're still looking for shortcuts.

Lol... made me chuckle. Fuck we are screwed sideways if Terry, Whelan, Elhomady and Johstone are the master plan.

Maybe we'll get that pacey young whippersnapper Joe Ledley as well.

Assuming that it is the manager's decision, Steve Bruce is p****** me off.  First bringing back GA and now JT.  Why not go for the hat-trick Steve and bring Richards back into the team.

I thought bringing back Agbonlahor for the Small Heath match turned out quite well, didn't you?

He's a detestable cnut, but he's considering dropping down a division rather than looking to the states or China for his last pay check, so hopefully he is motivated more by the football than the cash.

We have been far too easily bullied, intimidated and pushed aside for too long, so if he brings some steel (with a side order of nastiness), I'm prepared to give him the benefit of doubt. However, if he puts one foot wrong, he'll take an absolute hammering.

Hear hear! Sign him up and be done with it. It'll be good to finally get a nasty so so in the team, and a winner.

What has she done to me? Allowed me acres of space to score from a corner with my head. And I don't get many with my head.

And what else did he do in the rest of the games he played.  3m for one goal that Harry Redknapp's wife could have scored (until he ran her over).  Great example for young players at the club.

You know, I remember when not being nasty enough c**ts was a massive problem that was going to be solved by bringing in Keane, Jedinak, Elphick, bringing back Hutton and so on. Perhaps we could try signing talent instead.
