I'd hope that being around Terry made Tyrone Mings a better defender. I'd hope that being around Tyrone Mings made Terry a better person.
And if Mings was prepared to join a club with Terry in a senior position, to work with Terry over a number of years, etc, then I'm happy enough to follow his lead on this.

Heartwarming tribute to Dean.
All the best JT you have made a significant contribution on the journey to return Aston Villa to the top where we belong.

A lot of people assuming that Terry is the sole reason he doesn't post on here. I'm not ITK either.

I can't actually remember the exact details (I have a rough idea) of what he did wrong earlier in his career and, to be honest, don't need reminding. However, my feeling is there comes a time when most past misdemeanours should be consigned to history, especially when someone clearly isn't up to them anymore. It seems to me Terry fits that bill.

Regardless, he did a hell of a good job for us on and off the pitch, so thanks, good luck, don't be part of any team that beats us. I'm glad we brought him in.

He goes with my best wishes.

Never put a foot wrong in his season as a player and 3 as a coach.

Stopping his contact a month early when we were up against the wall and desperate for every penny thanks to that charlatan Xia.

Judging by his posts, it seems he’s loved his time here and has the ultimate respect for Dean and the owners.

Absolute Disaster for the Club just a few weeks before the start of the new season.
We need to get a big name in ASAP , always thought Terry was a good pull for signing players.

If Jack goes this could be a tragic summer

Why is it a disaster? What has he brought?

He got the blame for our defensive struggles in his first season as assistant and the credit for the improvement last season. He seemed to take a more active role during games with Smith last season. Can only have been useful in getting in Chelsea players on loan....but based on the last two we got....

Certainly was a fine player for us in that season in the championship. His class on the ball stood out a mile.

Find a hobby that makes you happy, because Aston Villa and football clearly don’t.

As if to prove the adage that, if you want to know about what's going on at Villa, ask bluenose; someone on SHA* suggested that Terry was unhappy that that Shakespeare was made stand-in manager while DS was isolating. His source was the Daily Heil comments section, so there's no doubting that it's true.

*I have a character defect that means reading their shite about us is in some way entertaining to me.

Like one or two others, his type is happy, wallowing in misery.Bet he can't wait to logon if Grealish leaves, and slag every facet of the club and proclaim the end is nigh.Predictable and tedious as fuck.Or he's a d@gshit fan on a wind-up.
