What’s going on with Ross McCormack?

Whatever your view point about our striker, there’s no denying that he’s proved a total dud this season.
Signed as a prolific Championship striker, who has scored a boatload of goals and has a fair few assists in his career, he looked a very decent, albeit a very expensive signing at around £12 million.

But it just hasn’t worked out at all, has it?
Hence it looks a total disaster when you consider the word is Bruce quite simply wants rid of him and will have to take a whopping loss.

I mentioned the specific reason that was being touted as the cause of his head not being “right” in the comments at the time of “Gategate” and out of respect, I’m not going to repeat it.
But suffice to say, it’s a situation very many of us will have been in, myself included.
And it’s quite simply one you have to get your head around as quickly as possible, if you don’t want it to totally mess you up.

It would seem that Ross is finding things particularly difficult though and I know that the latest word is that he has got severe cysts in his mouth.

I don’t quite believe it though and it smacks 100% of a PR game, that’s trying to cover things up.
If his cysts were the reason he won’t be playing again this season, after having had weeks off already, why not just say so, before the word got out that he hasn’t turned up for training in the last three weeks?

This is all a load of pony, in my opinion.

It’s interesting to note that cysts in the mouth are sometimes caused by heavy spirits drinking.
Not that I’m suggesting that that’s the cause in Ross’s case.

But while I somewhat sympathise with what’s going on, let’s not forget he’s being paid £50k a week.
Perhaps he forgoes that at the moment, I don’t know.
But if he’s still getting it, he needs to get things sorted.

      I remember watching him when he just broke into the first team and couldn’t believe the size of him neither could others around me. He was the start of a new generation of big powerful, strong athletic players. Good player him and Southgate arguably the best partnership we have had in modern times. Can’t believe he’s gone. Rip
