His statement is very classy and you have to say absolutely everything about him at the club has been of the same standard.

He is not what I expected and while none of that excuses how he may have acted in the past, with us he has been the embodiment of professionalism. A much needed tonic and the club is better for the exprience.

I wish him every success as a manager and would not be surprised if he doesn't end up back here one day.

Whispers said on Twitter three days ago he was having conversations
but was Remaining as of then

Our Communications Director already exposed that clown 3 days ago.

What happened? I'd like to know if you can share?

Whatever, his personality and let's face facts prior to him joining I always found him rather obnoxious, but for us as a professional he did an excellent job.

I wish him luck in his future management roles.

Except when his team plays Villa. Obvs.

Indeed limit the beatings of his team to 3.0 maybe

I never thought he would have hung around for four years with us. His signing was probably the best thing Steve Bruce did for the club. All from a chance meeting on a Portugese golf course. One of those ''orrible ones'' at the 15th hole, JT taking the piss out of his wedge action or whatever... You had to be there (Five star hotel and golf course in the Algarve...too bloody right I had to be there...etc. etc.)

I think people can atone for their past mistakes and by all accounts his behaviour off the pitch for Villa (with fans, sick children on hospital visits, charities etc.) has been exemplary. I know I've said it before but Ryan Giggs doesn't get half the grief for his cuntish behaviour, which is (allegedly) still ongoing at the age of 47.

I wish Terry well apart from when whatever club employs him plays Villa, he has gone about getting experience and coaching qualifications the right way rather than doing a Rooney or Lampard taking a management job with no experience.

Good luck John
He played his part here over the last couple of seasons
Not once do I remember him acting out his caricature self
All the best where ever you go, with a few exceptions

Yeah same for me.

Didn't really want him, thought he'd just be coming for a last payday like Richards and Lescott but completely in different league to both of those jokers playing for us. Also thought he'd bring us needless off the field issues (as Rooney again showed at the weekend) but been exemplary in that aswell.

Odd timing though to leave now if he really hasn't got a manager job lined up. I thought he might've left last summer when we got Shakespeare in which was insurance move but stayed on and surprised me he's left now when he could've been part of trophy winning team which this squad has potential to do in next few years.

Wonder if DS will get another coach in or he's happy enough with Shakey, R O'K and Cutler is also involved in many of the tactical discussions during games.

Good luck to him anyway which is not something I thought I'd say for his post Villa career when he joined us four years ago. Were a few posters on here saying they'd stop going to games when he signed which shows how disliked by some on this forum he was (and also the state we were in at the time of course).

Played his part in turning us into a proper football club again. Composed on the pitch and kept a low profile off it. Still not totally sure about how much he contributed to the tactics and running of the team, but good luck.

Defensive structure was excellent last season. Of course big part of that was how incredible Martinez was but generally far more compact as a unit.

He gets stick for 19/20 but ultimately DS would have the final say and he was too naive in getting newly promoted team having both FBs completely bomb on into other half and parking the CBs 40 yards from goal so we were too easy to bypass especially as we didn't even have a decent DM there until Luiz moved there.

He sorted our defence out.
