Jabba's Comments

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 free.

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 a line.

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 too much!

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!
