Rolled up sleeves have been mentioned, I believe.
To get to the bottom of those KFC buckets you need to roll yer sleeves up.

Looks like the news/disappointment has just reached the players as they go 1-0 down against Wolves.

0-4 in the end!

I reckon tha'ts because Bruce didn't arrive in time to tell the players to lace up their boots.

Wolves have what 12 first team players?!  Going to be beautiful to watch wor Brucey's increasingly rotund figure and purple face on that touchline arms behind his back.

Just been sad enough to watch the highlights. Jeez Newcastle were awful. Don’t know about Championship defending, more like non-league. And if that was Dubravka in goal I wouldn’t touch him with a barge pole!

A Head Coach that doesn't do tactics. Maybe they meant a Heading Coach?

Interestingly, Dubravka didn't feature at all according to their OS team lineup and wasn't named as an unused sub.

Could he be on the way?

It's one of those brilliant ones.  We've belatedly realised what a useless lumpen faced twat he is, and now we can use the compo to pay the entire contract for somebody half decent.  Sweet!

He might have done a number on Wed nes day though, and in resigning, voided any compo they might be entitled to.

Great illustration of Bruce spotting a good player but then not utilising him properly is Tuanzebe.

Played him at right back, didn't he? It's almost funny now looking back.

He did. At a time when our only central defender was an injured Chester and him insisting on persisting with sodding Jedinak there.

Makes me shudder, that. Wonder who'll fall victim at the toon of bruceball (the bingo style one, not the on-field tactics one) player selection. Once Bolasie has arrived of course.
