    Can’t wait to see SB licking his lips like porky pig when Leeds score. ****ing arrogant twat.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a manager get such a free ride. MA must have said your getting paid to be my bitch.

    I'm reaching here, but maybe - just maybe - the club have identified Bruce actually is a major problem but there is a takeover in progress so sacking him just isn't worth bothering with. I do recall that Ashley simply wouldn't entertain any wishes of a consortium, no matter the situation.

    Yes and also Bruce does appear to be losing his cool in the pressers and also appears to have lost the players. It’s damage limitation. Take him out of the firing line.

    Precisely.

    Bruce is staying until the takeover is done. Then he is being replaced by our favourite Spaniard (not Maximus Decimus Meridius) - the consortium's first choice. Graeme Jones will work in the new coaching set up.

    Going out on a limb, but I suspect that he will be involved in the academy, which our favourite Spaniard was desperate to revamp. The fat specky rat refused however.

    He looked ruined yesterday, mind. Someone did make the valid point that Bruce just keeps putting his foot in it - do the club really need that right now? Wouldn't it make more sense just to gag him? It wasn't as if Bruce himself looked happy about it.

    They have probably gagged him after his recent gaffes.

    "Hi steve, encouraging 7-0 loss today, I've got to ask, why no Mbappe?"

    "Come on Jeff, you know the rules, Mbappe plays on tuesdays, ONLY after Matty has played 3 consecutive games and Sean has had a tug."

    If I was Jones I would turn round and drive back down to Bournemouth and plead for his old job back.

    If he’s the answer I ask what is the question?

    It's good to see I needed an extra pair of eyes to identify and remove the wor flags and cabbage protests.

    He's a great lad and a great and I'll enjoy making his life difficult giving him the Almiron treatment.

    I'm going to enjoy it..

    I think this is a good move from Ashley.

    This guys coached at sides that gave played a modern passing style.. That means he's been at clubs and is aware of upto date training methods.. That alone is a better move than giving Bruce more players.

    You can't get Bruce a brain in January

    I get that and I've been of a similar mind. However that just pushes the inevitable demise down the line. Best case is SB gone and stay up, next best SB gone, go down.

    For me the Championship is better - also gets rid of the deadwood with a fresh start. The Saudis may be scared off but price drop may force Ashley's hand.
