Wanted striker Ross McCormack is reportedly ready to sign fresh terms with Leeds United, hopefully not scuppered by an apparent scouting mission by Everton.
Many Leeds fans seemed resigned to losing Ross McCormack at the end of last season. This was heavily down to the comments made by Neil Warnock, which left fans believing Ross McCormack would only be a bit part player in Neil Warnock’s Elland Road conquest.
However, in recent weeks, Neil Warnock has professed his desire to keep hold of last season’s top scorer, as the 63 year old looks to keep hold of last season’s player of the season.
Fans are divided as they sit at their computer screens airing their deepest thoughts about the club they love. Some sensibly look to the facts that last season Ross McCormack was the standout performer in a poor side, whilst others claim you can ‘take him or leave him’ as regards to his ability. To that I say … are you lot for real? Ross McCormack likes the ball at his feet, and when he gets it at his feet, he is dangerous. Having watched Leeds United play hoof ball last season, Ross McCormack was often isolated, as he towers at a mighty height of 5ft 9in. Given the service, I have the utmost faith of Ross McCormack firing in 20+ goals this season.
Despite my best attempts to sell the ability of Ross McCormack, many fans will question why he hasn’t scored goals season by season. A fair point raised by the far from forgiving regiment of Leeds United fans, but take into account what we got last season for just £350,000.
Ross McCormack will hopefully remain a Leeds United player this season. Especially if his replacement was to be Craig Mackail-Smith, I will justify my dislike for Craig Mackail-Smith with any fan who believes he has ‘real quality’.
If in the unfortunate event of Ross McCormack joining Everton, they will be getting a skillful, natural finisher who has a pluckiness about him that makes him one of the best players in the Championship …. Premiership standard? We may never know.
