Get Lost Potato Head!

Wise words from Villa boss Martin O'Neill who said :'I am trying to build a squad here - not dismantle one' following an approach by Steve 'potato head' Bruce for Liam Ridgewell following Small Heath's sale of Mathew Upson to West Ham.

Bugger, was given this info on Wednesday night and didn't put it up as I thought it was rot!!

Yeah I'm sure in some deluded noses sicko mind that would be considered a good career move. Noses you can't beat them, unfortunately.
still skeggy
How much did he bid?

Good question. If Upson is worth 7million then Ridge must be worth 4 or 5million?
DeanoVilla
still skeggy, who told you that???????
steff_the_villan
wanted to post it up on wed but wasn't sure if it was info passed on that I could use and wasn't sure if it was total rot or not!!!

Sit down potatoe head, sit down potatoe head, sit down potaaaaaaaatoe, sit down potatoe. Liam 'the loghead' Ridgewell is just posing as a centre back as we all know he is really the solution to our striking problems (remember than one?!)

Liam is a great youngster. It was well funny last season when he seemed to give away a penalty innearly every game
tarzan
Did this strange man (Steven Bruce), really believe in his wildest dreams that he had the remotest chance of luring Liam Ridgewell across the city to join this second rate outfit of his? The man is totally deluded, he has to be. Obviously the very fact that the board went against his wishes and desire to keep Upson at Small Heath, making him look a complete and utter idiot in the process, totally affected his mind, and he picked up the phone to call Martin while in a state of sheer lunacy. Thanks for the laugh Brucie. Even better than the 3-1 home defeat against Southend United.

haha. How much did he offer for him?

It could well prove to be career suicide for Ridge. Say 'No' Liam, just a resounding 'NO'.
