And from me - his attitude and behaviour with us was exlempary.

Like others I have never changed my mind so much about a person. I had assumed that he was coming either for a last bumper pay day or for it to be the John Terry show. It was neither and he has served us well. His parting messages to us and 'the gaffer' couldn't have been better. Good luck John with whatever you do - except if your team beats us!

Whilst there is no doubt Terry has had an influence in shoring up our porous defence I do wonder whether Shakespeare will come into his own now. I suspect he wouldn’t have wanted to step on JT’s shoes so I expect
He will come in to his own now

And I wonder if Shakespeare being here has prompted his desire to move on

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
   So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
   So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Give him a bit of credit: he refers to 'Villains' 279 times in his plays.  Anyway, Warwickshire's most famous person ever would have probably supported the most famous local, Warwickshire (originally) team ever and ever will be.

I totally get what you're saying in the Villa context, Spartacus, but I chuckled at "Warwickshire's most famous person ever". Kind of underselling the lad a bit there!

No quibbles with his contribution during his time with us and may be wrong about this, but always got the impression that John Terry hung around a little longer than he might have as he had one eye on the manager's job.  Think he has probably now accepted he wouldn't be in the running if Dean Smith were to go, so it's time to move on.

I thought the same thing.

Did they teach that kind of stuff in Hockley then?
