    I know he wasn't everyone's cup of tea but I liked El Tel. Grew up in Church Village as an evacuee during the war. His mother later ran the Farmers Arms pub in The village. RIP Terry

    RIP.
    A man who changed domestic football by embracing Europe.
    He had his detractors and may have lived up to the wide boy image but , to me, was a real football man.

    Likeable bloke, archetypal cockney, RIP

    Did well for himself in the game as a player, manager and general ambassador.

    As others have said, a likeable chap. If one didn't like him it was probably borne out of envy or the fact that he was (understandably) pro-England.

    RIP.

    A great character of the game. Unlucky not to lead England to the final in 96.

    There can’t be too many ex footballers/managers who co wrote a book on which a detective television series was based. Was an original thinker on the game even if he was probably proved wrong over artificial pitches. Was an inventive midfield player, but I’d say a much better manager - definitely in the top ten England has produced.

    RIP

    Chairman of Pompey for about a year and brought over some Aussies (who he also managed) like John Aloisi around this time. Local fans thought he was great, in fact I remember a fan shouting after Venable's was seen talking to a manager who wasn't rated, 'You wanna listen to him - he knows stuff'. Always thought this summed up Venables perfectly.

    Toshack was a very forward looking manager in his time

    And Robson

    Something about Toshack was very arrogant though 🤔

    RIP Terry, the game is poorer for your passing. A great character, wish there were more like you.

    RIP El Tel. Great football man and a great character. Very ahead of his time in his attitude to management.

    #BBC
    Gary Neville, who played in (Venables') Euro 96 England side, wrote on X (Twitter) after his death: "He is without doubt the most technically gifted British coach we've ever produced."

    Re: Terry Venables dies

    Really liked El-Tel.
    I may be mistaken but my memory tells me he was one of the first to tinker with the 442 formation that had been the standard for years.
    Think he ran a hotel in Spain after retiring from football.

    Put me in the total respect group as well. When he spoke, people listened. Great character and added much to the game. R.I.P. Tel

    He was 50% Welsh - "His mother was Welsh, and her family lived in Clydach Vale.When he was 13, his parents moved to run a pub in Romford, Essex, sending him to live with his maternal grandparents Ossie and Milly, who fostered his love of football"

    He managed the wrong team, he should have come to us...

    I thought he lived up towards Quakers Yard not Church Village.
