I wonder how Mings will react to Terry if he watches the Documentary?
Hmmmm, indeed.

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 wasn’t 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.

According to SSN he's on the shortlist of four to become new manager of Bournemouth.  It might just suit him being a bit closer to London.

It's over two and a half hours from Bournemouth to London, so he won't be saving much (if any) time if that's the motivation.

The appeal of going it alone must be strong. Depends as well what they'll allow him in terms of strengthening the side and autonomy.

But - unless it was one of the traditional big clubs you just can't say no to - going in midway through the season isn't giving yourself the best chance of success.

For his first gig, he may be better going in with a full pre season. Ideally not to a club that have big question marks over them financially as well.

They are riding high in the table, a good chance of making the playoffs at least.
There will still be a good base there after Howe left, it’s a decent club with a great recent history. No ginormous fan base to put you under pressure.
It seems a great step into management.

I think it would suit him down to the ground if they offered it to him and he feels he is ready.

I think the Bournemouth fans were spoiled by their time in the Premier League under Howe given the size of the club. I can't see any manager equaling the success he had there. They are a smaller club even in the Championship but after a few seasons in the Premier League their fans will at best expect Premier League football or at worst to be doing well in the Championship.

I think he’ll want to see this season out, especially as we’re doing so well.

Bournemouth were mad to part company with Eddie Howe. JT is doing well this season, I'd rather he stayed at VP.

I think JT is more sensible than I expected him to be, in that he hasn't gone down the Frank Lampard route (yet).

It was Eddie Howes decision to leave so Bournemouth didn't have much say.

I won't shed a tear if he goes but don't understand why he should go to Bournemouth if he has ambition. Bournemouth are a natural third tier club who somehow managed to leapfrog into the top division for a few season but they remain a very small outfit with no significant fan base. If they are not promoted this season their finances will cripple them and they will knock around in the Championship for a couple of seasons before disappearing into League 1. I would have thought Terry is better suited to mid size clubs like Norwich, Blackburn,  West Brom, Wolves, Derby, Forest even Coventry etc.
