Apparently he nailed Keinan Davis, last night, so still doing a job and worth every penny!
It is being reported as a hamstring, but his participation, mentoring the kids, is a perfect example of why he is still worth keeping at the club.
No doubt heartless bean counters would disagree....

Glad he stayed and might be needed at sometime, I think he'll hang his boots up soon anyway and would prefer that than playing for bloody Stoke.

Seems he wanted the Stoke move. Mainly to play regularly, as he accepts that he is nowhere near the first team squad here, but also because of his good relationship with Michael O'Neill.

Hope he retires at the end of the season and has a testimonial game to allow the fans to say goodbye.

i am surprised that there has been no comments on this interview at all to be honest. but then again, that sums up his time here at the club IMO. Fantastic servant and been a great player for us but very under appreciated.

for at least 5 years now so many fans been calling to move him on and he has always been a regular in every managers team except Billic's.

i would still rather have him on the bench than Barry and Harper.

No problem with any of what he said. He’s a class act who knows he’s not good enough for our team now, though he has looked ok in the cup games I thought. Hope he hasn’t lost an important opportunity and that he gets his move in the summer.

That was my reading of it too. I'd rather he didn't go anywhere else but if he does I'd wish him good luck. I'd prefer him to retire, but he'd be good for a mid/lower championship side for another 4 or 5 years or so.

Brunt is a top pro. Never moans when asked to fulfil any role, polite and never courts trouble. My lad did a football camp a few years back and Brunty and McCauley’s kids were both on it.
Brunt dropped his lad off a few times and was quite happy to have photos with my son and a bit of a chat with him.

And this is why this man is no where near out first team or match day squads anymore. League 1 awaits next season. Great servant but it's time to accept your level.

Jacko & Dexy please don't waste your time and effort in defending Brunt, yes he has been a good servant but you have to acknowledge he is now past his sell by date and should be binned accordingly :D

The club need to sort his testimonial and hopefully he gets some minutes last game of the season so he gets a proper send off.
O Albion we love you

I'll post if I see fit thanks very much , love Brunty and I'll say playing him with Barry and the lumbersome Harper was Bilic's mistake .However father time has called on him now , certainly as seen against Premier teams and most likely top end of our league . Should go out on a good note , not this way  8)

Tonight really showed where both he and Barry now are. I get no pleasure from saying it but they are finished now.

Lumbersome Harper.....stop it , you cannot defend the indefensible , brunt has been a has been for at least two seasons...embarrassing tonight when he desperately tried to kick one of their players and still missed....he should hang his head in shame, stealing a wage from the club now and his legacy and respect diminish each time he plays .
But.....I will say, he can’t pick himself .

I have the utmost of respect for Chris Brunt. Whenever he takes his final bow I will stand and applaud him on and off the pitch no question about it. Yet the idea of playing him in central midfield never really worked you might get away with it with 2 peak age all rounders in front of him but not the relatively inexperienced Harper and the even older and less mobile Barry that is something that was ill conceived and didn't turn out all that well.

I don't blame Bilic it might have been the least bad option he had. Should both Barry and Brunt be in the squad? Probably not.

Compare Krov's performance at West Ham to Harper last night in the same role with both Brunt and Barry behind.
If read my post I know Brunt's gone now , certainly as a CM.
Id sooner he be on the bench than Barry as he offers a bit more position wise  but both in reality are finished .
Stealing a wage ? Shame ? ..after all he's given us?
Miles off fella .
BTW we both agree Bilic picks them and up against a mobile Newcastle too.

I'm surprised this stuff isn't in the Gareth Barry thread tbh. Brunt showed last night that he can't do it anymore, but Barry was even worse - the guy has nothing left in the tank at all, cost us 1 goal, and could have cost us more.

Brunt needs to move on, but Barry is completely finished.

At one stage last night he tried to kick a guys legs out from under him from behind and couldn't even get close enough to do that. All felt quite sad watching the probable demise of a true legend
Thanks for the memories Chris

He should really have picked up a yellow, at least for that.  He spent the rest of the game just trying to foul the opposition.

Great player in his time and just about worth a place on the bench.  Would like to see him come on when we're cruising in a game and get the ovation he deserves though.
