Bridge Signs. City Humbled.

Wayne Bridge on show at the City of Manchester Stadium before today's game with Forest.

Wayne Bridge was unveiled to the fans before Manchester City's shocking home defeat with Nottingham Forest today.

Bridge has signed for a fee of around 10 million pounds on a 4 and a half year deal from Chelsea. The signing is the first, of what is expected to be, numerous high profile acquisitions over the next month.

Man City lost to Forest 3-0 in an absolute shocker in Manchester today, as the Premier League's (and maybe the World's) richest side crashed out of the FA Cup to Nottingham Forest who currently sit 21st in the Coca Cola Championship. The three goals all came from Forest forwards. Nathan Tyson scored after 37 mins. Robert Earnshaw made it 2-0, 4 mins from half-time and youngster Joe Garner hit the third into Joe Harts bottom right corner on 74 mins. The loss will pile the pressure onto Mark Hughes who has his expensive City team just 2 points above the Premier League relegation zone. Today's game was the first for Forest's new manager Billy Davies and he saw his side win at Man City with just 31% of the possession.
