What Steve Bruce can say to Liverpool: LXLWLLXLLXXL

That, in case anyone needs a clue, is our Premier League record since Oct 24.

So if Steve Bruce needs more than a simple “get lost” to offer Rafa should reports of a Liverpool bid for loan deal for Kenwyne Jones contain even a hint of truth, that might be a good place to start. I am not sure how it’s pronounced but it tells a striking story when written down (I realise it should really be LDLWLLDLLDDL, but X for a draw would sound better).

Get the phrase, though: loan deal. Not a “mind-blowing” transfer fee. Also a little short of £40m, the figure Kenwyne is worth on his day, according to both Bruce and Roy Keane. Just an agreement for someone else to pick up his wages for the rest of the season.

I would fully expect Steve Bruce to be a kindly enough character. But not one to take charity to such, well, mind-blowing proportions.

Unless, of course, he has an absolute 25-goal-a-season replacement lined up.

  1. Yiannis Skindilias I though the rumour that they had frozen a fart was just a ‘rumour’ and here you are to prove me wrong!

    Heskey, the stick Kenny gets and you want him instead, OH DEAR!!!

    Carew, have you consulted Martin O’Niel about this?

    Phew WHAT’S THAT SMELL??

    Oh you melted………

  2. There is only one true problem if Jones gets sold to liverpool…
    he ‘ll be resold at a lower price in a few years. It is Rafa’s great record.. selling players for less than they were bought.

    Get rid of him I say and use the money to get 2 new strikers. Last year Tottenham were bidding 15 million for him, this year (liverpool apart) it s Stoke and Birmingham at about 11. What happens next year? A bid from burnley or wolves of about 7 million? Let him go and YES get Heskey or Carew in, even if only for a season and a half. At least they can still be bothered to play and you know for a fact that there won’t be much o a resale value in them.
    Jones ‘s value is dropping like stock exchange during the crisis… and to be honest, so is his football.

  3. For this to be true, Bruce would have to have taken leave of his senses. And, in spite of some of the things that have been said about him over the weekend, I don’t think that’s the case. Besides, I’m sure Quinn would have something to say about it.
