I seem to recall that he turned down the chance of a managerial appointment to stay here as a coach to get more experience. If he is in frame for the Boro job, then he would have to consider it.

Whether it is true or not, he has had a great stint here i my view, and I was one of the serious doubters.

I agree. He was superb as a player. Hes shown a willingness to learn under Dean Smith. Hes been respectful to the club and fans. And I have no doubt over the course of the season and naturally aided by better players hes helped us get better. Given how well Frank Lampard has done he might be tempted elsewhere. And if he is having spent two years with us and helping to get us promoted then good luck to him.

Id be very surprised if hed want to jump into management after just one season with us as an assistant. He strikes me as someone who wants to learn more and only make the step up once hes ready, and expect him to work with Dean for at least another season.

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

I think he's a dreadful egg, and our defensive improvement is down to Mings.

i would also be surprised if he moved into management, I mean who else would we get too hand out the bibs and place the cones -  The sooner that racist leaves my club the better it will be!  and he can take his pencil case,  crayons and felt tips, colouring book with him and I will not give him another thought.

Terry is a born winner, someone id much rather have on my side than against, he might have made some mistakes but who hasnt. His love for Villa is there to be clearly seen and hes learning his trade when it would have been so easy to jump into a job like Gerrard did where runners up is the lowest you're ever going to finish.

Plus when he does decide the time is right to jump to manager wait for anything but Middlesbrough as its is a dog hole, surely somewhere more appealing will present itself.

Please don't disrupt our preparations on the eve of your biggest game to date as a coach, John. No secret trips to a mystery lover in Middlesbrough. It was named as the pregnancy capital of the UK yesterday. It's not a good reason to go!

Another item with the result on Monday falling upon it.  A victory and I think JT will stay for at least next season to see how Dean does things in the PL.  Defeat and he may well decide to look at doing the No.1 job himself somewhere.

No not really. Mainly because the defence looked shit until Mings came in, so I am going to attribute the improvement mainly due to having better players available. Not that I am dismissive of his coaching, or dislike him. I just don't think losing an inexperienced coach that will be replaced by someone as good (if not better) is a big deal.

So by extension surely that makes Dean Smith every bit as bad or as lucky when players came in. Because pre Mings the defence looked terrible. And while Jack was out the team looked quite dreadful. So should we get a more experienced manager if we go up vs one who has only ever managed outside the PL say a lower level?

My first contact with John Terry was when he visited Acorns the Christmas before last. Despite a rather unpleasant Villa PR woman desperately trying to get the whole visit over and done with as quickly as possible, John Terry insisted on speaking to every single child and their family. He came across very well. More recently when he is staying in the Midlands he has based himself at the establishment my seventeen year old son now works at as a trainee chef and he has been very nice to my son and taken an interest in his career development. My son thinks he is a great bloke and based on my one off meeting with him I agree. I am however under strict instructions from my son not to reveal where he is based.

He has and I think it shows a man who has matured and learnt from his mistakes and for that he deserves credit.
