We actually have very good defenders for the championship in Davies Keogh wisdom and Forsyth our priorities lie in last seasons vortex - central midfield- we know Butterfield and Johnson just don’t have what we need but how are we going to set up and try to play because the likes of Martin and Bryson with a fit Thorne or Huddlestone could be vital with youngsters like our own Elsnick and Thomas coming through 

This is the most fascinating thing for me. We have one of, if not the best, ex-midfielders in the country to sort out our midfield. I would say lets just stand back, watch and see what he does. You never know you might find some existing players doing things they didn't know they were capable of.

The reaction of the fans when a player leaves their club is usually - but not always - a good indicator of how their fared at that club. Villa fans were gutted across social media, I don’t recall seeing one comment being happy that he was leaving.

Ability-wise he would improve us. Keogh is a good player but Terry-Davies would be more solid than Keogh-Davies, but only in the short-term. That’s the issue with this potential deal. He would be here for a season then that would be it. Finances are also a problem as unless he’s incredibly keen to help his mate out then move into a coaching role, he’d be unlikely to want to half his wage from Villa at the very least when he could get a lot more abroad.

Agree with this.

If Terry is going to come then I can only see it being as a coach or player-coach taking a massive pay cut to kick start his post playing days career.  If he's driven by money he'll get a lot more elsewhere so I can only see him coming as both a favour to Lampard and the chance to kick start his coaching career.

If Jody Morris does come to Derby though as seems likely, I can see Terry taking his role back at Chelsea as his most likely destination.

37

Oh! Sorry! 37 is it? Well then I take it all back! At that age, John Terry should add the perfect amount of pace into that back line to compliment Curtis Davies!
