Gutted about this. Really charismatic manager. Loved how he managed England and brought The best out of players like Gazza, Shearer etc. 

And Euro 96 - wow the Holland and Scotland games are up there in my all time favourites.

RIP El Tel

Euro 96 was a bit special, irrespective of not winning.

Working in Manc, travelling in through bomb devastation, fans still attending in numbers and not cowed.

Signed flag left by the Czech fans in the boozer on Oldham Street.

Then England's performances on top.

A special time.

RIP Terry Venables.

Decent player, better manager IMO.

Have a mate who is the spitting image of him - knows FA about football who was shocked when he came into the pub during the SA WC and everyone was chanting at him - a measure of the real TV’s popularity.

Great bloke and manager by all accounts from everyone I’ve met who knew him. Sad to see another part of my life move on. RIP Tel.
