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
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
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
