Newcastle Again Linked With Wayne Bridge


This is not the first time Newcastle have been linked with Manchester City left back Wayne Bridge.

Wayne Bridge – Newcastle again linked with the England left back

Newcastle was linked with taking Bridge on loan for the season, about two weeks ago, but those reports were played down by club officials.

But there is news again today in the People, that Newcastle gaffer Alan Pardew wants to sign 30 year-old Wayne Bridge – and that’s apparently whether 25 year-old Jose Enrique leaves the club or stays on Tyneside.

The England left-back is one of many players that Manchester City will have to unload to bring down their wage bill this summer, and he is certainly surplus to requirements at the Manchester club.

But he hardly fits the profile of players that owner Mike Ashley wants to sign, those are  players under 26 years of age who can still improve and increase in value once they arrive on Tyneside.

Bridge would be available for a nominal fee, but of course one major problem is Wayne’s reported £90K/week wages – which quite honestly are just ridiculously high.

City seem to want to spend money like it’s going out of style, as they pay these ridiculous wages to players who don’t even make the grade at their club.

We would be very surprised if there is any truth in this story, and of course we have to remember it is Sunday today.

That’s make up a story day for most of the Sunday papers.

    In relation to the last post its simples, its illegal to enter the field of play during a football match, they chose to go on the pitch, identify as many as possible, give them all 1year bans and any fine that is awarded by the fa divide up and pass down to our resident idiots 🙂

  • I wish papers would, just for a week, write the truth. But then again who’s going to buy a blank sheet of paper?

    Ed you going to any of the us games? You should do a write up about the tour and the opposition we’ll be facing i’d find it very interesting. As you say it’s make up a story day and i don’t think we’ll get him. He’s terrible. Only positive thing about him is is his lass

  • Eastander, can a club fine it’s fans? I know they can fine their players, but the fans? Other than that I agree. Oh, and a life long ban for the violent ones.

    ToonArmyThomas –

    If you would play for free we probably couldn’t afford you I’m afraid.

    Free’s are really expensive. Cost about £8.5 million each which is why we’ve now got s0d all money in the transfer kitty

    Right I’m off, I’ve ordered a king size hangover for the morning and don’t want to sleep late, can’t wait for more speculation, bullshit and arguments that seem to come with Sundays.

    Thomas – always worth a try. If Jose gets Chumpions League footy do you think he would sign up before he noticed the spelling mistake?

    Lol, heskey and bridge, you just couldn’t make it up.

    I’d imagine too old and/or too expensive but that’s reality, obviously free’s are too much so we will have to rely on Man City and the to pay us to take a player off their hands the same way we have to do with Smith!

    So man city will have a lot of cast offs this summer. Who would you take? I’d take onouha boyatta possibly bellamy (wages?) possibly swp for squad purposes. Think the rest are out of our league price wise

    I would really like Moussa Sow and Keitsuke Honda as replacements for N’Zogbia and Erding! There both just as good and Sow’s goal ratio was better than Erdings last season!

    @ Thomas,

    Actually I’ve quite amused myself with Chumpions League. I’ll have to use that one again.

    Especially if Jose ends up going to the land of the car thieves

  • One of the problems City have. Is that the players they want to move on are on silly money wages. They will end up having to give players away. But who can afford there wages? City and there ambitions have turned round and kicked them where it hurt’s.
