    No, not a transfer rumour (though he is a very handy player).

    Surprised this didn't get a mention on the Barnsley - Leeds match thread, but did nobody stay watching and hear his on-pitch interview at the end?

    In all of my 30+ years watching football, his were the single most DISRESPECTFUL comments I've ever heard from a player, to his employers. No attempt to bat away the questions at all "Yes Villa are a great club" "Impossible not to have your head turned, if a manager like Steve Bruce wants you" - all whilst stood there on the Barnsley pitch, in his Barnsley kit, the cheers of the Barnsley fans still ringing in his ears.

    What an absolute prick.

      Prick yes but speaking the truth.. Duffy didn't cover himself in glory either.

      Seems all they're doing this season is stacking up a squad full of disloyal mercenaries, how can Bruce build a team with players like that ?

      He walked all the way around the pitch after the game, applauding the Barnsley fans. You could tell he was saying goodbye. At least he played, scored and helped them win, rather than cowering away behind the dugouts, in case he got injured before his move.
      The Sky pundit asked him a straight question and he gave a straight answer.

      2 more IN for Villa very soon.

      Palace may have trouble bouncing back next year if Villa get their act together.

      Like others have said, don't see the problem.

      See Stephens transfer request, Duffy last spell at Blackburn etc.

      Would you rather players lied?

      Although actually I'd say that his present manager has proved himself highly capable on a smaller budget that Bruce has ever had to cope with. And he's got a proper local name.

      More respectful than Dale was in the Summer. He at least managed to get himself on the pitch and perform

      I wouldn't go as far as calling him what you did in your final sentence, but yes, he showed a complete lack of disrepect to his employers in saying what he did, when he did.

      What he should of said of course, was, Villa WERE a great club , not are!
