Villa May Be Lumbered With Wayne Bridge

Villa May Be Lumbered With Wayne Bridge

If reports are to be believed then Aston Villa could be lumbered with Manchester City's out of favour Wayne Bridge.

Bridge (30) has struggled to cement his place in Mancini's starting eleven this season, hence the numerous rumours circulating around for a while now that the former England full-back has had his day at Eastlands.

And now we have Aston Villa manager Gerard Houllier confirming his interest in taking Bridge on loan until the end of the season.

Dead-man walking Houllier said...

'There has been dialogue (regarding Bridge). It is true we have been talking to them.'

On a personal note Bridge has done nothing wrong over the last two years and thank him for his services; however I will be sorry to see him playing in the Championship next season should the loan deal materialise into a full blown transfer.

Bridge left Stamford Bridge in January 2009 after then Blues boss Mark Hughes paid Chelsea an estimated £10 million.

It's of increasing puzzlement to me how Bridge continues to appeal to clubs. He can't tackle, can't cross, can't use his right foot, and never looks up. Seems to be a nice guy but that doesn't count for much on the pitch. He really is poor, one of our worst signings of the new era.

When Wayne Bridge was an apprentice at Southampton he used to clean one of my colleagues football boots (yup, he was an ex-pro). Perhaps he (Bridge) should have continued in that line of work as I hear he was quite good at it!!

We need to sell these players not loan them out its like chucking away 5m in bridges case while still also paying a portion of wages get them sold even at a knock down price cos otherwise we will lose more money when they can walk for free and on wages

Can someone put me straight here,why would you tinker about with a side that last year was only a couple of players short of a top 4 team playing great football.Add players like Pires and bridge,leave out reliable proven prem players for fringe players and then bring in Heskey as your main striker.My guess is a clueless froggy ********* is picking the team,but i may be wrong,cant be that bad though if he rids us of the one footed clown.

The main problem with Wayne Bridge throughout his time at City has been his injury record. If he could stay fit rather than picking up a little niggle every other game then I'm sure he'd be a useful aquisition for the Villa. He's not the worst player we've ever had at left-back (not by a long way LOL!), but he must be one of the least reliable! Good luck to him, as Tudor says he's always conducted himself pretty well.

I think with the Bridge signing it was the case of the old pals act, with him and Sparky having played together. As a left back he is average, much more interest in his girl friends than his football.

You can keep him, Ciaran Clark is better and hes only 20. Talking about the Championship, I saw your £1billion club's League one display at The Emirates the other night, exceptional display of how to ***** yourself when you find yourself up in the top notch of the Prem and come up against a propper football team !! lmfao
