I wonder how Mings will react to Terry if he watches the Documentary?

If Terry does take the Derby job, I would like to see Petrov brought into the coaching team as his replacement.

Or Olof or Martin Laursen, at least they will sort the defence out properly.

Do any of have the credentials to be the right choice for the job? If not then we shouldn't allow the decision to be ruled by sentimentality. We just need to bring in someone who will help improve the squad and can work with who we have already, if that is one of those guys then great.

JT looks a knob from that doc and I suspect most of us thought he was a knob at the time but at Villa he's been respectful and done everything in the right way, on that basis I wouldn't chase him out if he doesn't think this is the right job to go for.
canít disagree with any of that Paul. I didnít want him, but he won me over. Havenít seen the doco so canít comment on it.

I was at Acorns when Villa did their Christmas visit a few years back. Most of the players just hung around the place like spare parts (admittedly it can be a bit daunting when you meet all the poorly kids) but John Terry made sure he spoke to every kid and parent (or grandparent in my case). In doing so he even held up the team bus's departure much to the annoyance of the PR woman coordinating the visit who clearly couldn't wait to wrap things up and get going. He also befriended my son and took an interest in his fledgling catering career when Terry was staying at the hotel my son worked at. I haven't actually watched the Anton Ferdinand documentary yet but I have it lined on on the BBC iplayer.

Anton Ferdinand comes over as a throughly good bloke. It clearly affected his career, for something that wasnít his fault.

Yeah it's quite sad really as a few years later with BLM etc and Terry would most likely have been fired. What I don't get is the inability of his high profile brother to have caused a shit storm of epic proportions back then. Likes of Ashley Cole backing Terry didn't help matters. FA/Capello/Hodgson all acted disgracefully, if I recall correctly they didn't pick Rio so as not to cause issues with Terry? Capello walked when the FA took the easy option of removing the captaincy from Terry? Another high profile racist scumbag, Suarez, backed shamefully by his club at the time then too.
I thought the FA came out of it a little better than that: after removing the captaincy from Terry they still subjected him to a disciplinary hearing despite him being found not guilty in a criminal court at which point they could easily have brushed it under the carpet.

Funny you should say that Damo, but away from the documentary, obviously, I remember Bolton away the season we came up.

We had a very rare occurrence of being at a ground early so we decided to see the players turn up. I was surprised how many were head down and straight in, considering the feel good factor at the time.

Only John Terry and John McGinn stopped and had time for everyone.
