Ok, so compare this;
Has Bruce been in a punch up with one of the players?
Well, I have to say I very much doubt it.
While he might not be as young or nimble as he was, would you want to take him on?
I certainly wouldn’t.
But I was perplexed, as I didn’t recall any moles in the relevant areas of Bruce’s mush.
Which led to a brief nosey on the net, that tells me you can actually have moles that are lighter than your normal skin tone, which might explain why we’ve never noticed them.
Add in that Bruce is the right age group to have had a thorough well-being type check up, it does make sense that the story is right.
Which is quite a shame, as a good manager-player punch up makes for a great story. Remember O’Neil and NRC?
Still, you would think that assuming top level Footy managers probably have top notch private medical insurance, the quack would have done a better job than that.
AJ and Klitchko didn’t look as bad as that after their battle, after all.
Still, what do I know about it?
And then the serious departures begin, with Kozak gone.
I know many rated him, but I didn’t see it myself.
He had a torrid time at the Villa and I wish him well for the future.
Carlos Sanchez has completed a move to Fiorentina and while I know he wasn’t very popular with the Villa fans, I think this one’s a shame.
I think he’d have been at least good competition for Jedinak especially at Championship level.
I also feel that he got far too much blame for trying to cover an horrendous defence.
Not that it matters now.
What chance some of the very top earners/wasters leaving, I wonder?
I live in hope.
