The Sky Sports pundit has been giving his weekly predictions of the weekend’s forthcoming Premier League fixtures, and soon enough he came to talking about West Brom, who bought Barry from Everton earlier this week.

Now, there’s nothing at all wrong with Gareth Barry, let us make that clear from the get-go.
But, when you’re supposedly a club who wants to be aiming for the Premier League title every season, would signing a 36-year-old midfield destroyer really go down well with supporters?
We think not, and, frankly, Merson should really know this.
Is this the most ridiculous suggestion you’ve heard in a long time?
