57% Say No To A Third John Terry Bid

On our last poll we asked the question...

Should City make a third bid for John Terry?

Here is the result, in descending order.

Nope 57%
Yup 43%

Chelsea FC has said their Captain is NOT for sale and as far as they are concerned the matter is closed, but is it?

Here is what a few VMC members have been saying...

bigbri - It does make you wonder why we have put in a second bid for him when JT said he wanted to remain at chelski. There must be something in it because I doubt we'd go in a second time just to look like fools.

eighthsin - Fair play if we made a bid, England captain- a leader and defender. It is foolish to think that we haven`t lined up a number of defenders on our wish list and Terry should be on there as well as a few others including Lescott.

It is unsurprising that it was rejected out of hand if indeed we did inquire, better luck with the other names on the list!

Thaibluefan - Strange that this should go out on the Chelsea website and nothing in the media. Something fishy me thinks...maybe more to come on this.

BlueWolfie - I had read somewhere that JT worries that he won't be Captain at Chelsea for much longer - maybe something is bubbling under the surface, although I still can't see us ever prying him away from there.

dakeb - City bid to get JT thinking of a big transfer payoff. sounds like he is already slightly unsure of his future under ancelotti, and city could be hoping despite Chelsea saying hands-off, that JT himself could engineer a move, rather like SWP did the other way a few years ago. we will see.

Mike Hunt - When Cook came in he said we would bid for players knowing we didn't have a chance of signing them yet.

I think we have put a bid in to put the fear of god into Chelsea and to pretty much poke them in the eye and say ' we aren't scared of you and we are going to be after you and get ahead of you so watch your back'

All we have done here is put a marker down to everyone for them to watch themselves because City mean business.

Have your say now by paying our forums a visit.

On our new poll we ask the following...

Our next signing will be?

Forget him and move on I say

Forwards and attacking midfield players are transferred for the highest amounts of money for good reason, there's less of them than good defenders. Get Tevez and Eto'o sorted and buy any two world class defenders. Terry? I would not turn him down but, this is just an unwelcome distraction prior to signing Eto'o and Tevez.

I think it's hilarious! Fax a fourth bid to Weasel K before the third one. Which reminds me. This pontificating about "tapping up" from some Chelsea quarters is stunning. SWP and Sturridge were stalked relentlessly by Chelsa. It's side splitting to read the reactions to liddle ciddy daring to even pop the transfer question. Those reactions would be unimaginable if he did sign. From the most loyal player in Chesea's "family" to hated money grabber in one fell swoop. City really are taking the p as Chelsea fans on here have rightly pointed out! Meanwhile, let's get on with other business.
Johnny Baguette
Try to blow them out of the water with another huge bid, if no luck then move on. Sources say he's wavering, albeit very slightly!
RobsonGreensleeves
First get CL spot, then dream about landing Mr. Chelsea. Trust me, we will win CL before you win a CL spot. Carefree!!!!
crazyforchelsea
Okay, fellas. Please not JT okay? ALex, Ivanovic.. Anybody. But not JT! :-)
JT_daniel
But I'm sure he would'nt move.
JT_daniel
OK if he goes back and the next is rejected, do we start to look stupid? Lets move on to the next target.
Buzz Lightyear
Terry pulled out of a friendly in Yeovil Saturday night. Probably about to make some sort of a statement which I guess he will have to at this stage. Cheeky feckers, City eh?
Johnny Baguette
pulled out of a friendly cos he's still on holiday!
merlin
To JT-daniel: I think we both know that the chances of him moving are zilch but all concerned get some publicity out of it. He's Chelsea through and through and as long as he gets on with your manager no chance of moving and it would be a very brave manger who took him on .... remember Gullit and Shearer at newcastle .... and we all know who won.
