The possible signing of John Terry isn’t going down to well with some Villa fans, and some of the reasons they are giving, well, they’re quite stupid frankly. He’s going to cost us too much money and he’s too old. Some are even threatening to support another football club.
Haven’t we got one of the richest men in China as owner of our club? It’s always puzzled me why some Villa fans really get hung up on paying big money for really good players. But what about Financial Fair Play? Are you telling me, that Manchester City didn’t find a way around that loophole when their billionaire came riding in on his camel?
What the hell has age got to do with it? I think it’s pretty well established, that John Terry is very fit and hardly breaks down to injury. Steve Bruce has learnt signing older players from his former club manager Alex Ferguson. How old was Laurent Blanc when he signed for Manchester United? 103, wasn’t he?
Look, I think a signing like Terry would not only shore up our defence; he’d also chip in with a few much-needed goals. I also think his signing would do our clubs image a lot of good, I mean it would be a real shot in the arm for us. John Terry is an excellent player and if we did manage to bag him, I think we’d have a real chance of promotion.
I think we’d be really stupid if we didn’t sign him. Football players like John Terry don’t come along often, even if he is an expensive old man. So stop your moaning, and keep your fingers crossed that we get him. UTV
