Why on earth would he ditch a Premier League job working with and learning from Deano to go and live and work in that shithole?!

A tad presumptuous!

- money
- ego
- we don't know his working relationship with Deano.

Given that Lampard has done a pretty good job at Derby this season, I guess this is no great suurprise; to see another Championship team seeing Terry as a potential manager. The way it goes.

I'd add that we would miss his premier league experience given he's the only one with any in our current coaching team.


But, as Leeg says, we're have a hurdle to jump first.

Indeed, a big hurdle where we have stumbled before.

The vast majority of people would be tempted to leave an assistant manager role to have a go at being manager somewhere, especially somewhere with realistic ambitions of playing in the top flight.

Some join clubs like sha as well.

Steve Gibson is an autograph hunter.

Terry would be what? the third ex player he's given a first managerial role?  Apart from McLaren, giving the Middlesbrough job to blokes who've never managed before hasn't gone well for him.

Surprised he hasn't offered it Ravanelli yet.

Villa and Derby are in a play off final in a few days. Two ex-Chelsea men from each club get linked with jobs for next season. Just sounds like more lazy journalism to me.

I'd be tempted to agree with you if we weren't talking about the sort of town where the locals throw rocks at the moon!

I agree totally.  We've had Abraham sold, issues with ffp and Mings mentioned in the last few days. All clickbait shit sensationalism.

Something tells me that we'd cope without him.

Yeah, probably, but we could do without the distraction.  Although, if not true, I guess they are pissing themselves in training.

Indeed.

To be fair, the Middlesbrough manager job has more kudos and is a better opportunity than assistant coach at Villa, regardless of the league each team plays in. I'd imagine that he's the highest-paid assistant in the Championship, and I'd imagine that he doesn't deserve to be.

Meh, if he left then I would trust the current regime to get a decent coach in to replace him.

I liked him as a player last season, and so far he seems a good egg on the coaching staff. But if he gets an opportunity I wont be upset at him taking it.

So you’re not attributing any of our defensive improvements to his knowledge and ability? Just a good egg?
