I don't do drugs and I don't drink.
At my age I can get the same effect just by standing up too fast.

A great player, coach, manager, club owner, hotelier and good all round bloke, with a wry sense of humour. El Tel also found time to co author best selling crime fiction and he also had a decent singing voice!  A multi talented character who made a huge contribution to football. RIP Terry.

Certainly a great Coach and fun personality.   Would say he was an interesting character in some of his business interests away from Football.

What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Had the pleasure of getting pi$$ed with Terry in another life.

Private party at his club in Kensington, Scribes West.  1996 ish,

Had been invited because our manager was featuring in a book about managers at every level of the game. Terry being the main man, with our Frank Murphey flying the flag for non league. So off we went, 20 of us to a private party hosted by the England Manager.

El Tel and Ted Buxton got a Karaoke machine out and as luck would have it, Kelly Marie was in attendance.  Once the singing was over, a screen dropped from the ceiling and we watched Frank Bruno win the World Heavyweight Title.

As surreal nights go,  that one is right there with the best of them and trust me, I've had a few.


RIP to a legend.
Make every day a Sun day.
