The Aston Villa fans here in the Transfer Tavern are beyond nervous. Indeed, their whole season comes down to Saturday’s Play-Off final clash with Fulham and the glittering lights of the Premier League are within touching distance for the first time since their dismal relegation in 2016.
So, our punters clad in claret and blue are eager to take their mind off of the game. With that in mind, a sensational report in the Daily Telegraph claiming John Terry could extend his stay at Villa Park on a deal that would see him MISS any Premier League game with Chelsea has, naturally, sparked quite the reaction.
Terry is a hugely popular figure amongst the Villa faithful, though that kind of agreement seems strange. The likes of Frank Lampard and Cristiano Ronaldo have had to play against the sides where they made their name, so special dispensation for the former England skipper seems odd.
With that in mind, here’s a look at the reaction online.
A total disrespect to Villa if he does sign it.
