Following on from the article we published earlier in the week, Would You Give Ross McCormack Another Chance? GMVillan has tried to look more closely at the Ross McCormack question. He says in our forum thread… that it is clear the striker was a bad buy for Villa.

Keith talks to them for 35 minutes and says how much he likes the banter between him and the fans. He knows it gets brutal at times but it`s a part of football that he loves. This makes a great listen, which is no surprise when Rob Bishop is involved. Read more: The Bish Interviews Keith Wyness. CEO ‘I’m Happy Shocker’

Thought for the day: I bought the world’s worst thesaurus yesterday. Not only is it terrible, it’s terrible.
