Bizarre one, when was the last time we actually loaned them a player? Will be an odd feeling for him on derby day.

Guess with the other options being QPR and Bolton he was always going to choose them but would be very strange to see him play for us again after this so imagine this is just a loan to get his contract to run down a bit more and then sell him in January.

Buzzing to have signed for @bcfcofficial canít wait to get out there!! #bcfc #kro 😀⚽️🔵

Despite this, I still have more respect for him than I do for Micah Richards.

It's a season long loan so I assume the idea is he does ok there and we sell him for a smallish fee next summer.

Good luck to him. He's a professional footballer and has to make a living somewhere. He's too old to wait around in the reserves his whole career. He needs to play first team football.

He knows he won't crack the first team with Villa with the amount of midfielders we have bought, he's had his chances with us and loans, and no-one has offered him a contract.

Best of luck Gary.

Ah thought it might've been to January. This shows yet again how silly it was to give him a new 4 year deal when he'd had a couple of good games when SB first came in. It's o.k trying to protect our investement but the other side is he falls out of favour again and we have to keep loaning him out until his contract runs down.

Hopefully the new owners will learn this quickly.

Me too. Unless he plays against us of course.

What is wrong with him writing #kro?

We sound like their whining fans (see that lot thread on this for some utter twats).

I'm sure when he typed it he was doing comedy dry wretches and everything, but he's playing for them now.

Good luck to him, I hope it goes well and serves as a springboard to come back and do good stuff for us.

Blues are of zero relevance to us, they'll be fighting to stay up, we'll be at the other end of the table. Getting all stroppy about them is laughable. They've permanently got a Villa thread at the top of their forum, and have match threads for OUR matches. Let them obsess about us while we take absolutely zero fucking notice of them. 

They are utterly irrelevant to us.

Yeah and I mean it would make sense to try and get them onside and avoid getting stick from the off.

I wasn't referring to your post, but now you've mentioned it, you're clearly pointing it out to make the same point.

So what?

Life is too short to worry about those knuckledraggers.

it's like when McLeish came here and some people got the hump about him coming from them. I always thought that would have made it more delicious if we'd done well with him, that we'd taken him from them.

Same with GG. It'd be great if he did brilliantly for them this season, then we dragged him back. Much more gratifying than if the same had happened at Barnsley or Forest or somewhere else.
