Terry Phelan enjoyed far greater success and fame away from Elland
Road than he did in his brief time with Leeds. Phelan was another of
the players brought on by Eddie Gray that were let go by Billy
Bremner. Phelan went to Swansea from Leeds, but it was at Wimbledon
that he made his name. Spells at Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton
- with some meaty transfer fees involved - and a place in the Republic
of Ireland's national side all make you think that we'd have been
better hanging on to him as a youngster instead of letting him go on a
Signed on a brief contract with Sheffield United in 2001-02, he
played a handful of games as left back cover before moving to
the States to play for Charleston Battery.
Maggie and Sam Roberts say:
Sam and Maggie Roberts used to live next door to Terry in Plodder
Lane, Bolton. We would like to say hello and catch up with him. How
are Ashley and Robyn? We are now living in the Middle East. Drop us
Mark Evans says: I recently met Mr. Revie's cousin at work (Costco)
in Tacoma Washington U.S.A. She was a lovely woman who shared a few
stories with me. From what she told me he was a wonderful man who
experienced great success, and took good care of his family. If only
todays star athletes could be more like him, maybe we wouldn't be in a
sporting society with salery arbitration and incesent whining.
Terry Horton says: Not only have I watched Terry play for the
Charleston Battery during the past season, I have had the honor of
having him as a good soccer friend and my 13 year-old daughter's
soccer coach. Would you ever believe that he would be coaching girl's
soccer in his off time? Unbelievable! The problem is there are 18
girls that are simply too young to appreciate what they have in Terry
as a trainer. They recently won a major tournament, Terry's first as
a coach. Great guy and very committed to teaching.
Dale says: i have had the chance to have Terry as a coach at my
school this past week and unlike most people in South Carolina he
really knows alot about soccer, and he happens to be a very nice guy.
Alicia Horton says: Terry was a great coach. He taught me alot
about the game and he helped me touch up on my skills. He was awesome
and I was lucky to have him as a Coach. Hi Robyn, Correy, and Ashley!
Good Luck playing at the Battery.
Alicia Horton says: your son ashleigh is so nice to me!! see yall
at the battery
callie says: Alicia? okay, yes, i had terry as a coach and he was
intense which only made us better and he was also a good friend, we
got alot of laughs out of him. he's unbelievable as a player and his
family is the greatest. and like Mr. Evans said, if only athletes
were like him, they would suck it up.
Wes Wilson says: Terry Coached me one time as I trained with the
Pumas a U-18 team from Charleston, SC. He was very negative and used
foul language that offended me and some of the other players as my dad
is the Asst. Principal. He also touched the ball alot and would get
angry when he messed up and yell at the smaller players to take out
his anger. All in all he was a h*** who kicked and touched the players
paula ash says: I taught Terry's son, ashley, in Bolton Lancashire
and have often thought about him. Ashley was a lovely little boy and I
hope he ( and the rest of his family ) are doing well!
