So, does anybody out there still think that Bridge is worth £90k per week? He had a nightmare debut against Arsenal and, to be honest, he was almost as bad tonight. Burnley, that is Burnley not Barcelona, ripped him apart in the first half, with Tyron Mears, a West Ham reject, looking like Alves everytime he overlapped.
To be fair, Bridge wasn't offered any protection by Ba and if Grant plays that formation against Liverpool, we will be murdered. But what, exactly, did Wayne think he was doing for the Burnley goal? Not even Spector in the left back berth could have ballsed up so badly!
Going forward, the guy is decent, but as a defender he is ordinary in the extreme. The 90k a week salary he is being paid is a total joke!
