Hopefully worth starting a new thread!?

"Aston Villa have beaten Norwich to the signing of Fulham striker Ross McCormack after agreeing a £14million deal.
The Scotland international will travel to the Midlands on Wednesday to sign a four year contract."

Perhaps this means they will not go for Bamford but I hope they do, along with two in midfield who can see a pass, and a couple of defenders, at least one strong CB and a RB.

Very happy about this despite the fee. Had just about enough of these 'future stars' who we've signed over the years who never live up to the hype anyway. We need proven players at Championship level and this guy fits the bill.

Thinking about "future stars" can wait. It's the present we are in bloody earnest about. Hope this goes through.

The fee is crazy but that is modern football. We obviously need a goal scorer and there are not many around so hopefully this goes through and, with 2 or 3 more additions, we can push for promotion.

It is a lot of money, but goalscorers win games. Hope the deal gets completed one or two other good signings and I may start to feel positive again about the season ahead.

Exactly romanianvillan.

His age, the fee, it's all immaterial.


If his goals help get us promoted, then at £14m he comes cheap.

Fulham paid £11m for him 2 seasons ago.

Brilliant news.

I don't care about the fee, goalscorers are worth their weight in gold, and he is a goalscorer in our division, you can't argue with that record.

Looking at his goalscoring stats, it is staggering that no Premier League team were after him

Cardiff - 74 apps (25 goals)
Leeds - 140 apps (53 goals)
Fulham - 89 apps (38 goals)

That really is not bad at all

Well, fingers crossed.

As said above, fee doesn't really matter, especially if Dr X is as wealthy as he claims.

I just have reservations because we haven't had a decent 20-goal striker for years. And does anyone think our midfield as it stands can provide the service?

Oh well, let's see....

4 year contract? Is he not 30? It's a good deal for him I recon, hope he gets the goals we need.

Good start, but that is all it is, a start.

Proven championship forward who shoulx guarentee goals and assists.

Now we need someone to compliment him to put away those assists, and two wingers and a creative midfielder to supply him for the goals.

Why we have waited until 48 hours of the season ki k off? God only knows.

Lets hope he signs, until he is pictured in a villa shirt, i am not getting too excited

A decent forward will demand the ball from however crap the midfielder may be, we need someone who can stretch a defence plus create space.

This would be a good signing although Hepburn-Murphy is also ready.
