I know I should let it go but it really does rankle when McCormack keeps banging on about his transfer being a good deal for Fulham and what a wonderful opportunity it was for both us and Villa.
Does this guy really think we would rather have £12m in installments rather than his goals? He really does believe his own press that he is some kind of martyr that has saved Fulham from some form of oblivion because of the fee he attracted. Next he will be saying Fulham's good start to the season is down to him making way for players coming through.
The guy must have trouble getting through the door of the changing room his head is so big! Good riddance to bad rubbish as far as I'm concerned.
I had no intention of booing him when he comes to CC but to be honest I have changed my mind and if he gets slaughtered he will deserve everything he deserves.
Agree totally. But you have got to admit we are playing with more spirit and variation than we ever did under Mc Cormack's "Marqueedom". Does suggest that part of our problem was playing one dimensionally through Ross??

He did great for us as we WOULD have gone down without his goals over two season's.
He fully deserved a final good signing at age 30, I wish him the best but hope he does not score against us this season.

I don't know if it's true, but a couple of posters said that he was at Craven Cottage on Wednesday. Maybe he has now realised that he has made a grave mistake by joining Villa, and has his regrets in leaving. I must admit that although I was very disappointed when he left, it may have been the best thing for our club and us fans in the end. COYW

He probably went back for his wallet as it was too big to take with him when he left;-)

Easy to be critical on Ross - but you were him, what'd you do. He is a quality player and probably one of the best players ever not playing in the Premier league...he had to weight up his chances, and rightly so at the time he made his decision, Villa and Norwich were in a better place.
I said it before, I would not say anything bad about Ross (he came, he did a good job, he left without leaving us out of pockets or taken any advantage of Fulham) - He's not a Dembele or Roberts.

Believe it or not, he was in the club shop with (presumably) his son, buying merchandise..........

He will remain a relegation battle player. Still no promotion for him I'm afraid. If we had stayed with him, we'd still be looking for our first win. Don't get me wrong. He'd be on his 3rd or 4th goal, but Strangely enough, that is what would have happened. Just wish him well. We outgrew him and it's now time to move to the next level with better, more prepared players. T

Of course I'm grateful for his contribution whilst he played for us; that wasn't my point.
My point is that he keeps banging on in every press conference about how good the deal was for Fulham as if he negotiated it himself or we'd never sold a player with that kind of value before.
He did a good job for us whilst he was with us but he has just too big for his boots with this self righteous Ignominy for Fulham and its fans.
You did well Ross but you are a championship player who is part of a team of 10 other individuals - get over yourself! I doubt he will be in the Prem next season if Villa do get promoted.

I don't have a problem with McCormac he has given us some spending options that wouldn't been here if he had stayed. Yes he gave us some goals and they kept us up but we have to move on and we have.

You missed your chance Wednesday he was in club shop buying Fulham gear for his son

The reason we are playing better is simple we have a better class of player at club

If Ross was here we would still be in this position we might have won against Cardiff he would strengthen team not weaken it !!!

Probably fancied watching a game wth his son probably still lives local let it go he saved us from from division one football two years running !! It's a different game now driven by money let's look to the future with this team think we are in for a good year that's the best response to recent events Ross and the other two west London muppets !! (Don't include chelscum in this there out of our galaxy now )
