Even without fans, the decibel levels will be high at Turf Moor today with hollerers-in-chief Steve Bruce and Sean Dyche fighting for their Premier League lives.
Bruce will not hold back on the touchline, particularly with Newcastle in the midst of a relegation dogfight that could go down to the final fixture.
In his more reflective moments, the 60-year-old wishes he could be a little calmer on matchdays. But he realises he will not be changing now. His Toon players can expect another earful at High Noon.
'I was always vocal as a player,' says the former Manchester United captain.
