I would rather have Tezez but a move for SWP and WB would make sense, presumably on a six month loan to see us through safely either to survival in the Prem or relegation to the Championship.
Both are solid Prem players who lack the quality to play regularly in a side bidding to win the title. The question is, why would they want to join a relegation battle?
I suppose City would be reluctant to strengthen any of their rivals by selling or loaning to them the less than dynamic duo. And it might help their cause to strengthen us in the hope that we might then secure results against the likes of Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham - although the idea that Wright-Phillips and Bridge could make that much difference is a little far fetched.
Then there is the little matter of the cap on domestic loan signings. Ben Haim would either have to leave or be bought, and any thought of taking Keane or O'Hara on loan would be binned.
We need a left back and a pacey flank man, although SWP is better down the right than the left. The deal makes sense for us but would Bridge really want to join our troubled waters and be so close to John Terry? And as for SWP, his last stay in London was not exactly a happy one. Mind you, Wright-Phillips does enjoy playing at Upton Park! He can't have outjumped many defences to score over his career!
In case I don't post later, Merry Christmas to you all, even you guys who hate me! I hope you have a great day tomorrow and that Boxing Day is even better!
