Default Debate of the Day.....Is John Terry worth a Million quid a month

Some reports today are saying that Manchester City will offer Chelsea captain John Terry £1m a month in wages in a final bid to land the defender......

Is it just me or is he not the most overated player in the Premiership.....he's an average defender at best, and not to mention a total twat !

Still, if Man City have more money than sense, as seems to be the case, what with a 10man strike force, more fool them

he's a brilliant player, a leader, rock solid - but no-one is worth that sort of money.

It's all rather academic because the story has simply been concocted by the media to sell newspapers. JT won't be going to Man City, end of discussion.

Got to agree with you on this one bangleman,for me he is very over rated. He needs the money though to stop his mother nicking wallets thieving pikey scum.And as for a leader I do not see any attributes in him at all,same charisma as Bryan Robson.

I put him on a par with Terry Butcher, lots of spirit and determination but not much skill or class......and a bit on the thick side.

Has anyone bought those lads from Newcastle yet, Taylor and Bassong I think they are called. Would be a better choice for City in the long run.

He has a superb positional awareness - very rarely caught out of position.....

.......... which helps him to compensate for a distinct lack of pace, and a very ponderous first touch.

England are probably better with him than without him though, which partly explains the salary thing.

Mind you, we've had generations of overrated central defenders, for some reason........... apart from Butcher, Adams, etc, there was Mark Wright, Phil Thompson, Dave Watson, Colin Todd.......

Hubby told you so. JT never had any intention of leaving. He was simply angling for a better salary package from the Russians.

Im glad the majority of replies are positive on the fact that he is over-rated....whether 1mil is applicable or not.

I dont know what others would make of Frank Lampard but he's another 2 legger that fits the OTT list. On comparison, Gerrard out-classes FL!

Zinedine Zidane reckons Gerrard outclasses every other midfielder in the world........

Mind you, that Zidane............ decent passer, but no pace, too easily marked out of important games, with a ludicrously overrated reputation based entirely on a couple of opportunist goals in the 1998 WC Final........... if someone chipped the ball into the space behind him, he needed a tugboat to pull him round so he could chase it........

anyone who says lampard isn't much good is a total idiot, look at how many goals he gets season after season, he may be a stupid tit but he's an exceptional player.
