Wayne's 'Yesterday' Hung Around & Disappeared

Wayne's 'Yesterday' Hung Around & Disappeared

The transfer deadline day came, hung around for 24 hours and then disappeared without any hint or mention of Manchester City's out of favour Wayne Bridge leaving the Etihad Stadium.

The former England international made 18 West Ham United loan appearances last season but now it appears the 31-year-old left-back is going to enjoy the next couple of months watching football, either from the stands or on TV. Let's be honest, there's not a hope in hell City boss Roberto Mancini will give the former Chelsea player a squad number this season.

Future

The loan market for lower league clubs reopens in a couple of weeks time, therefore one can assume Wayne will either find himself playing in the Championship (or lower) or, enjoy reaping in his Premier League salary from the sidelines. Of course there is always January 2012 for Wayne to look forward to.

Yesterday

Sorry but I couldn't resist...

I guess Wayne no longer cares about football, but would rather spend his time shagging pop-stars these days.

He turned down loan moves to Celtic and Fenerbahce, where he'd still have been earning his usual bloated wage but with the destination club paying a %. And he rejected both. Has there been a more spineless footballer since Bogarde at Chelsea? I don't care how early in our development he came, even when we signed him in 2009 there was better and cheaper available like Taye Taiwo but Hughes was obsessed with "Premier League experienced". Thank god we signed Mancini, only one certain "flop" so far (Boateng) and we made a profit on him.

Not surprised..he was happy to hang about the bridge for a few years and pick up his wage pkt at the end of each month.... looks like he`s happy enough to do the same with us.
