Nottingham Forest legend Kenny Burns has blasted Ross McCormack in an article on www.nottinghampost.com You remember Ross? Yeah, you do, he was allegedly the Villa striker bought from Fulham who was going to get us up this year after we paid a fortune to buy him from Fulham. No? Well he was a bit non descript on the pitch to be fair. The man with the gate? Ah you remember now. Oh and by the way, the electric gates do have a manual override, I was sad enough to go and find out! Read more: Ross McCormack Now Blasted At Nottingham Forest
Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce was speaking ahead of the Sheffield Wednesday clash on Saturday and he insisted the club hadn't given up on a potential Play Off battle this year. Having taken the two nil victory on Saturday lift us into the top ten in the Championship, Bruce would certainly have been pleased with that as he knows the least we have to achieve in the remaining games of the campaign will be a solid top half finish to give us some momentum going into the next campaign where anything less than the automatic spots simply shouldn't be considered good enough.

Three out of four ain't bad..It was with mixed feelings that I greeted the news that Villa had scratched their seven-year itch and had at last won three games in a row. It was definitely a big sense of relief which predominated but there was a touch of melancholy too when the reminders of the last time it happened were used to illustrate the length of the drought and the scale of Villa's fall. Worse was to follow, as the highlights showed why Villa were reserved for well past the television watershed. The heavy censorship, which was radically applied to protect the innocence of any young children who might have stayed up past their bedtime, hid the worst of it, which was only revealed when I got access to the lowlights much later.
