Can't believe Bruce won't bury the hatchet with McCormack especially in our financial predicament, this decision could backfire massively.

Its hard to bring back into the fold someone who thinks he's the billy big spuds, its all about him, don't forget fulham wanted to take him back on loan last season and the players all said no, look at leeds, did they want him back on loan, you show me one manager who came to his defence when he lost the plot, brucey gave him another chance but wee jimmy crankee again gave it the big i am, there's a reason no-one likes him.

When fit he scores goals for fun Classof82! With having already lost Snodgrass, Grealish is on his way, and Kodjia and Adomah both linked with moves away that is a lot of goals and assists we need to replace. I agree with Malc1976, I don't think we have the luxury of turning our noses up and a goal scorers like McCormack, regardless of attitude.

11 Jul 2018 13:30:33
Bruce is being stupid ignoring McCormick,
He is a proven championship goalscorer and we are about to lose all out top scorers and goal assist players next month.
Bruce is very stubborn and needs to bite the bullet and make up unless McCormick does not want to that is,
I also think he was wrong in saying in his interview that players will be going cheaper than there value,
This will send out the worse possible signals and we will be have players going for hardly anything to there real value.
What a f*****g state we are in,

McGatestuck may be a good player - we will never know because of his unprofessionalism and his poor attitude and his disruptive influence. If I were the manager I would have done exactly as Bruce. The best chance we have of being competitive next season is to have a happy squad with a good team spirit. This would be impossible with him anywhere near the squad compare his attitude with the Scottish Cafu.

Would rather see Richards go if I'm honest,
Hutton I agree has been the player of the year for me with his attitude.
Not many like him in the game taking a 50% pay cut!
Bruce has a number of issues with a few players who don't get the playing time they deserve but at end of day he is the gaffer, At end of the day,

11 Jul 2018 16:25:48
Where are the goals coming from mort13? We have lost Grabban and Snodgrass already, that's 14 goals and 15 assists, give or take? We may lose Adomah and Kodjia, that's another 30 goals over the past 2 seasons, minimum. Our most creative player is leaving, that's 100%. I'm just curious where people see the goals coming from?

We aren't in a position to shelve a player because of previous indiscretions - The entire squad needs a clean slate, from Richards to McCormack, because we are in a dire situation and it's only going to get worse.

11 Jul 2018 16:31:32
And for the record I'm not advocating McCormack plays instead of our kids, purely that he should be involved in the squad. If you said to me, this is the team for next year and we will survive by one point I'd bite your hand off because we would be mush better equipped to launch an assault the following year, sadly with Bruce in charge that will never happen.

I like your team but there is to many young players in the 11,
Bruce would never play that team if I'm honest,
He would have whelan or Jedi or both in the 11.
Thor should be a regular this season but got a feeling he will be sold,
He was not happy with Bruce leaving him out when he was playing well,
A young player who could do well this year if Bruce picks him is Hayes,
Talented playmaker with a great range of passes.

The thought of losing grealish for under 20mill sickens me,
With levy after him he will get it around the 15 mill Mark!
We are not in a bargaining place really we need all the money we can and the dr will take anything to put towards our dept,

Just to say by comments made on here by sum1 yes I don't rate Bruce who does but I never want my team too lose, who does just because I say I want him to change tacticts an play doesn't mean I want us to lose does it, people on here get defensive we all love villa an all have different views on the way we should play, it's normal that's football it is a banter site for views an stuff like that, no1 gets serious and gets personal, we just have different views if people don't like people's post don't read em,

Football is all about opinions nobody is right or wrong some people look through tinted glasses and some don't and that's what makes football so special. This is probably the hardest time in aston villa's history so naturally people will clash in their opinions people will disagree argue and in some cases fight (ie Wembley) . I believe this is only because people care so much for the club and everybody needs to stick together to get through this hard time.

Just when i was having the worst summer ever in football terms, and after enduring weeks of bluenose laughter, news comes filtering through of a possible transfer embargo at St Andrews and suddenly the whole world seems so much more tolerable. KARMA.

My last post
Steve Bruce has just come out and spoken about our club and said it as it is sell sell sell now for all you people who follow our club knows when he came in we was in the doldrums facing relegation. In the face of it he inherited a squad built by RDM and Dr Tony. When that went tits up Steve Bruce had to get loan players in not the ones he wanted because we was stuck with FFP Fact. Now the poor bloke lost both his parents in a small space of time yet still turned up to train and also manage on match days that is a true leader in my eyes. We all wanted the truth what is happening and now our manager has had to say it not the person who has ruined our club again this speaks volumes of our manager. Certain people on here spout on and on day in day out about how much they hate him and his football but he had the best win action than any of our last 3 maybe more managers and we scored more goals last season than I can seem to remember them are FACTS. So before you all wish him bad luck this season and hopes he fails again just remember not only are you wishing him to fail but you are also hoping Villa fail that in itself is embarrassing. Enjoy your moaning and gloating because you are both a real embarrassment to all that is ASTON VILLA FOOTBALL CLUB!

Good post there mate.

09 Jul 2018 22:41:22
I agree Villadaz, bruce very nearly got us promoted whilst working with restrictions and if we had won that last match I think the same people would still be calling for change because of his style of football. For me he plays the football that wins you games at Championship level and with cash behind should we have gone up who knows what he may of achieved and what style he would have adopted.

But despite all the turmoil this summer and the inevitable pending departures, I still haven't given up on next season just yet because you just never know in football who is going to step up and become the next batch of star players UTV.

09 Jul 2018 22:46:49
Hope it's not your last post Villadaz, some of us do like reading your posts and find a lot of interest in the points you put forward, myself being one of those. UTV.

2 things, come on daz, stop f**king about and say what you mean!, last post my arse, you can't skidaddle now fella, now the chips are down, this is when it all really starts, some fair weather supporters will always hoot up when things go sideways, but if your old enough to remember some of the divisions we've been in and fortunes of the past, this my friend is just a pregnant pause, we go again because that's who we are, and will always be, yeah the road is going to bumpy, and the results jumpy, but that's what will make it all the more sweeter when we rise again to the top, so don't give up daz, our best times are ahead of us, and secondly, on a personal note, i'll be glad when we get rid of kodjia, some players add to the feel good factor in a changing room, SOME DON'T, i know which one he belongs to, so the sooner he jogs on the better, i really think because of this squad unity will prevail, so whoever is there at the start of the season i don't care, as long as they give they're all (hutton style) that's all i ask-hearts and minds boys-UTV!

Interesting interview by Bruce it seems to me that jck will get sold on the cheap now which is a joke because he's a 40 million pound player, Norwich sold James maddison to Leicester for 25mil who has never played in the prem an has half the talent of jck, so how does that work, big clubs are going to be like leeches now around our players because they know we need to sell . all our big stars will go now I'm gutted to lose our best players . but it's time to rebuild the team with our set up its the only way forward an to get more faces to the squad ;I say let them off the shackles an give them time an we could have more stars, an plus there's nothing
Better in seeing your own climb the ladder an get good.

Either Levey wants Jack or he doesn't - if he does then pay the market value, If he does not we need to offload others instead, Levey would not sell Deli Ali or Winks for less than market value and we should tell him to put up or shut up.

09 Jul 2018 20:10:25
Well the comments from Steve Bruce have really depressed me! Looks like wholesale departures, we are in MASSIVE trouble!

09 Jul 2018 19:29:38
Wot stats are these villa daz, here's a stat Bruce failed with the best squad in the league, plus with his signings, an his play no matter what u say mate Bruce has failed in every way not a thing u can about it end off blah blah blah . how can u say Bruce has been a successful at villa u really must be blind.

Agree0 Disagree7

We did come close to going up Villa4eva and you don't achieve that by playing losing football. Yes the season had a disappointing finale but overall I enjoyed the season, it was a huge change from watching us lose on a weekly basis like we have done for the past several years. Bruce did take the team forward from where we were and I don't perceive missing promotion by one match as a totally failed season, especially when compared to those finishing in the bottom six, so for me the season had a lot of pluses.
