If it's a loan it's better than nothing. Bruce gave him every chance to get back on track and it seems that in Bruce's eyes he hasn't made it. We don't want him around, whatever.

It does mean we're down to Gabby and Hogan at the moment. But it also means Davis and RHM have a better chance.

I don't care if Gabby scores a hattrick - he shouldn't be anywhere near the shirt and gateman should be sold full stop at any price - until Villa get this and get rid these guys there will be no progress.

Still think there were goals in him if played right. To chose gabby 1 goal ahead of him is lunacy.

Bet he goes to Sunderland and scores 15 or more. Bet they play him right and supply

Still. If he's not going to be used (what happened to the fresh start?) then his wages need to be off the books as Bruce is struggling to clear out those he doesn't want from previous managers and we are obviously struggling financial fair play rules wise.

He won't score JF , he looked awful in pre season , slow , sluggish , poor control , poor passing etc. I saw nothing to think that he was taking the opportunity Bruce had given him , and it seems Bruce sussed it out quickly as well when he left him out of the Germany trip.

I'm really surprised at your stance on McCormack to be honest J, given your stance on Gabby.

McCormack now is what Gabby was 2 years ago. Unprofessional and unfit.

At least Gabby has made an effort to try to turn things around it seems.

McCormack is disruptive and lazy. Get rid.

Manager Steve Bruce has admitted that nobody made a genuine effort for Ross McCormack in the summer transfer window but the move to Melbourne could be exactly what he needs.

Complete waste of money. Glad that he's going to the other side of the world... I guess the word "foreign" can now be removed from the description of mercenary players who get a big money move and do nothing except sit on a fat (pun intended) pay check for the duration of their contract...

Bruce didn't take to McCormack the moment he arrived. At that point McCormack was our leading scorer. After that he hardly started and sometimes didn't make the bench. McCormack may have his faults, but Bruce has his favourites and McCormack isn't one of them.

Puzzled as to why we forked out so much for Hogan. He doesn't fit any of Bruce's set-ups. He has his skills; great balance on the ball, quick, but his size means he has to fit in a certain way. McCormack looks to me to be that bit sharper in the penalty box, a true poacher in a way which Hogan isn't. If Davis gets injured or rested, I'd rather we played Kodjia and McCormack up front rather than Kodjia and Hogan.

Whatever, he's off to Aus; pity, I think we could have done more with him.

The move to Melbourne is very strange. Why is he going so far away? Couldn't he go on loan to Scotland or France?

Is he being sent to Australia for crimes against football or for stealing loads of money off us?

Part of it is changing managers and then the old manager's players don't fit the new manager's style.

A bigger part of it with McCormack is addiction issues. How were these not known about before we signed him?

Players are going to have their issues and if we waited for the perfect player, we'd never sign anyone but still. There should be due diligence done on players before we sign them.

Quite possible.

I just hope the accommodation they find him hasn't got electric gates to the property.....

You usually need a skill to be granted a visa for Australia so realistically he should be denied entry because he possesses none.

Sums him up that at the age of 31 he's chosen to go to a league standard equivalent to probably our semi pro level. I guess the work-life balance will suit him down under.
