    According to the Daily Mail

    Also says the players feel that the training schedule is designed to suit Bruce rather than the team......sounds about right

    Remembering that this is the daily mail, Iím not convinced. This paper often just makes things up and so would usually blow any facts from a story like this up in huge proportions. Their report seems a bit timid which is unusual.

    If it is true someone is obviously happy to leak it to the media. I understand where Gayle is coming from though. I know people on here don't see him as a Prem striker but I really don't mind Gayle. Given a solid run he might not be prolific but he will always score some goals worry defences with his speed and get in dangerous positions. Joelinton doesn't seem capable of any of them things but starts ahead of him. I thought when Joe got the 9 shirt taken away and given 7 they'd actually realised he wasn't a striker. I thought if Wilson was to get injured Gayle would be our back up striker I reckon he will of thought that as well. Only to still be sat on the bench while Joe carries on doing Fu(k all.

    Does that mean pork pies are forced down the player's throats at tea break time?

    I agree. I mean could he be any less effective than Joelinton? The situation with Joelinton continues terrible. He strings a couple of passes together and everyone says he played ok. It seems some people are so desperate for him to come good that theyíre clutching at straws. Like many other of the clubís employees heís well out of his depth and, for me, he represents everything that is wrong with our club.
    That the club gave him the 9 shirt because they thought he was a striker is quite simply unbelievable for a PL club. Itís another amateurish mistake to add to the list and has devalued a famous tradition at the club,

    The Daily Mail along with their darling Boris Johnson are the only two who I can think of who would be embarrassed if they were caught out telling the truth.

    Came from Craig Hope who got banned for talking about something similar a while ago which turned out to be true. He's got good sources.

    Aye, fully believe Bruce sets the training around him rather than players.

    It just highlights how the dressing room is fracturing all over the place.
