Bad Luck Liam Ridgewell

Bad Luck Liam Ridgewell

Liam Ridgewell has moved to Birmgingham City.

Slightly mystifying this one, hopefully the incoming part of the transfer window is just around the corner but I always thought Liam would make a decent Premiership defender and a possible future captain. That said, I'm a pratt!

23-year-old Ridge, the man with half a beard, has passed a medical and signed for Blues.

Tough luck on the lad really.

He would of been better of at Villa instead of going to the bad part of Birmingham that smells funny and liely to have a club in the championship for the 08/09 season

hope he gets on well, just not that well due to where he's gone!!! Thought he was a decent enough centre back but hopefully we'll get in a quality replacement and all will be tickety boo

this really is good news, I think anyone who rates him as a defender as never played there and knows nothing about positioning and zone awarness. I have always thought he was a poor player, I wish him luck as a former villa player, he always tried but he just wasn't professional standard. The fact that he brought Mellberg's reliabillity down cause he clearly didn't have faith in him and tried to do everything him self didn't help his case.

I see the knuckledraggers on KRO can't decide whether to love him or hate him. I hope he has a get out clause in his contract in the event of relegation! UTV

I guess he's been quite clever, instantly making a name for himself by becoming the first player to make the switch in 23 years. Also hands next seasons beard of the year award to Mellberg on a plate! :)

He was absent from the U21s Euro champs due to personal reasons so something wasn't right with him (other than the dodgy stauche.)

He has been prone to make at least one serious mistake per game and some of those have proved costly. He had a good run in the team but was always fallible under pressure. I wish him luck, but not at that place he has gone to. Relegation could be an issue this year for him. If he continues with his errors it certainly will.

Another one out with no replacement, what the ***** is going on?

Agree macka. That's my concern about this latest transaction. We seem to be digging a deeper and deeper hole for ourselves. We're happy enough to fall over ourselves strengthening other teams squads by shipping out our back-up players, yet we seem totally incapable for whatever reason(s) of strengthening our squad.
