Bruce Denies Forse Fallout

Bruce Denies Forse Fallout

Steve Bruce has denied that there has been a falling out between him and striker Mikael Forssell.

Forssell is now effectively our fourth choice striker and hasn't started a Championship game since August.

He also recently spoken out about the 'selection policy' that sees loan signings get preferential treatment when in all likelyhood they won't be staying at the club.

The Mail reports that a number of clubs are watching the situation and that Blues can expect offers for the Finland international come January.

I'm not sure on this, I'd rather he was played to be honest that we continue to train up some Arsenal youngsters, if we let Forse leave and as expected Bendtner does return to Arsenal then we are in the position of effectively trying to replace two players.

Speaking to the press Bruce said:

'No, we haven't had words at all.

'He is upset and disappointed he has not figured a lot this season, which is understandable. Every player wants to play.

'But something could happen to someone tomorrow, you never know. We need four strikers. The biggest mistake I made last season was going in with three strikers, knowing the injury doubts about Mikael and David Dunn.

'That's what I want to guard against. Mikael will get his chance again, I'm sure.'

Nah he hasn't fallen out with the Forse, he'd just rather train up an Arsenal youngster who thinks he could walk into their team and has no intention of staying with us.

You really don't like Bendtner do you KRO. Although I tend to agree.
