Based on Kyle Bartley’s performance for West Brom tonight I’d say that’s a bullet dodged #LUFC— Anthony Lewis (@tonylewis92) September 14, 2018
I thought this last night..he was all over the shop— thomas banks (@ThomasBanks1985) September 15, 2018
Bartley looks half the player he was for us #lufc— Jonathan Routledge (@jonnyroutledge5) September 14, 2018
He wishes he was at leeds— lesley Inwood (@lesleyinwood) September 14, 2018
I was really disappointed we didn’t get Bartley this summer but he looks to be struggling so far this season #lufc— RichieRich (@AMitherer) September 14, 2018
Bartley is having a stinker we dodged a bullet with him at £5m+ #lufc— Adam Sapey (@I_Like_Crumpets) September 14, 2018
Watching KB just confirms what a brilliant defender GMac was. No pace but brilliant anticipation,great in the air,played the simple ball and made very few mistakes. Bartley just looks like a penalty waiting to happen. #wba— John (@sempertefallant) September 15, 2018
We was absolutely awful Bartley isn’t up to standard. And we made a massive error not keeping yacob we needed him in centre mid in tough physical games like that. Plus brunt has never been a cm he looks lost in there— Paul Fellows (@4fellows) September 15, 2018
Can’t be long until Tosin is back playing too, as Bartley is shocking. I’d like to see Field or Harper as one of the 3 midfielders too, but that’s looking less and less likely bar an injury crisis— Matt Evans (@MattEvansWBA) September 15, 2018
GMac would of been a better option than Bartley and Hegazi combined #wba— Daniel (@DanielMBrett) September 15, 2018
Bartley was poor last night but some who have said he is the worst CB to have ever played for us lol did you start watching us in 2010 or something. Christ. #wba— Martyn Walters (@Martw90) September 15, 2018
