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. […]
