Poyet praise for two of his FA Cup stars

Liam Bridcutt on the ball against Newcastle

Liam Bridcutt on the ball against Newcastle

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

 Albion boss Gus Poyet believes Liam Bridcutt and Wayne Bridge both deserve to be playing at the "highest level".


  He has warned it will be tough for the Seagulls to retain the services of Bridge next season and has hailed Bridcutt as the best defensive midfielder in the Championship.


  Bridge, on loan from Manchester City, was the sponsors' man-of-the-match as Albion knocked Newcastle out of the FA Cup for the second season running at The Amex.


  Bridcutt was named man-of-the-match by ITV in the Seagulls' convincing 2-0 victory against the depleted North-East giants in their televised third round tie.


  Bridge's cross set up Andrea Orlandi's superbly taken opener for Albion in the first half.


  Poyet said: "He is a Premiership player. We are more than lucky to have him here. So many things came together for us to have him. People are asking if he is going to stay here next year.


  "It's going to be difficult, very difficult, because first we cannot pay him and secondly it depends where we are, because he deserves to be playing at the highest level. We need to get everything together to be lucky."


  Bridcutt was outstanding again in front of the back four, leaving Poyet concerned there could be interest in the former Chelsea apprentice during the January transfer window.


  He said: "The best thing about Liam is that he understands to an incredible level what I want from him in a game. That makes us a better team.


  "If Liam tomorrow goes to Real Madrid I will take it, because he deserves to go to the highest level. I cannot stop those things happening. As a holding midfielder there is none better in the division.


  "That is why he is expensive. Now we are at the same level as the rest of the teams. Everybody is talking about plenty of millions, we do as well. We are not selling cheap anymore."

Bridcutt's ability to leap from a standing position, his strength on the ball suggest he is 6" taller and 2 stones heaver than he is. He is an outstanding athlete and we are lucky to have him. During breaks in play he is the one Gus gives instructions to, and he is constantly talking and setting others in position. One man doesn't make a team and all that but God help us if he moves on this month. Who else have we got who can do the same job?

Would have thought we might be keeping a lower profile when it comes to Bridcutt! We seem o be putting him in the shop window quite a bit lately and would have thought he would be the last person we need to lose. Sell him for 5m is one thing but in my opinion we would have more chance of promotion and the financial benefits the premiership brings if we were to keep him. We have nobody in our squad who would replace him and the cost to bring somebody else in would be around the same price. I agree he is quality but don't sell him in January, at least wait for the summer like we did with Bennett and Noone. Just an opinion.

My sneaky suspicion is that WB will still consider the Albion IF we go up, with money not being the n°1 and determining factor... but playing in the Premier League may well be crucial. I am not sure of contract arrangements but the latter point may well be important for TK between the sticks too. And as for LB, well what can you say... Hopefully the price will be fair, not pricing him out of the market and holding him back but getting the club the correct compensation. As usual, fingers crossed.

If we keep Liam here, which I think we will, and as a result get to the Premiership which I think we have a very good chance, he will be playing at the highest level and we will not "need" to sell him. We need to play the long game. Selling players in January in our position is proposterous.

Looks likely we are aiming for promotion, as for bridge, offer him a 18 month contract at 20k a week, and a large lump sum, player like that is 1 million plus. Cheaper than buying a less player not good enough.

Such a good post Yorkie you got it spot on.Im glad Gus has pointed out these two are quality.Its players like this i don't mind paying the money for,and im sure most Albion fans feel the same.These two guys kind of underline how i feel about the freeloaders at the club,and also at some other clubs.Bridcutt gives almost 100% every game,and if he does get an injury his back asap.Im sure both these guys will play in the prem-league in the future with or without Brighton.I just pray we keep them both as they both a joy to watch.

I think that the key to all this talk is the fact that Buckley signed for the next few years. He would not have done that if he was not convinced we would be playing in the top league soon - which means he believes we will have the players with him to get us there. If Buckley played at the weekend and had a stormer - the talk would have been about him (and the fact that he has committed his future to us). It just so happens that the 2 that played a blinder at the weekend were Bridge (who we know, by rights shouldnt be here - at least if you look at his pay packet) and Bridcutt who Gus plucked from obscurity and plays like this - week in, week out. It could quite have easily been El-abd and Barnes that played out of their skin.. and the whole of the country would be talking about them!!
We need to accept that the better we are, the more high profile games we play - the more people are going to talk and speculate. We need to trust that the set up is good enough here to attract top people to join and our best players to stay. Lets face it - Gus and Tony have not done too bad in that department so far (exception of perhaps Murray who was just looking after number 1). With all that said - we can not break our wage structure and throw silly money at something that is not sustainable (and yes - more than £20k a week in our situation is not sensible). Unless of course we all would be willing to pay an extra £1 for our pies and double for our season tickets!

midfield dynamo says...

Re Bridcutt, agree with Yorkieseagull and Freeloaders, he is our midfield dynamo. His timing is nearly always superb and almost breath-taking; witness the regular dispossessions of opponents - which, timed wrongly, would result in yellow cards. His leaping to head balls is astonishing. Easily my favourite Albion player. I hope that Will Hoskins gets a run at some stage - getting on the end of Will Buckley's crosses? UTA!!!

Bridcutt is worth £6-7M easily. But worth more than that to the Albion as who could replace him and perform that role? No-one in our current squad and certainly no-one in the ~Championship that we could afford.

Mark i really hope the aim is promotion this season. Because the three relegated sides are doing so badly, i feel this could be the best chance for a few years. The whole team were excellent on saturday, newcastle did allow us to play our football from the back, which some teams dont at the amex. On the subject of players, anybody on here noticed how orlandi, plays, runs and resembles mr david beckham. Or maybe it is just me. What a great addition to our team he is as well, a touch of class.

Every now and then Gus tells us how good this or that player is and that they deserve to play at the top level.
A couple of weeks back it was Bruno, 'let's get Bruno to the prem.' Then we had the Buckley V Zaha comments today it's Bridcutt and Bridge.

I agree with his comments, they are top quality but it's good that Poyet also makes it clear that we are not a selling club any more.

IMHO when people talk of the sale price for Bridcutt I think they are talking about the value he has to us, what he does and what we would have to pay to replace him, I see it differently.

If I were selling the lad I would ask, if you don't buy Bridcutt what will you have to pay to buy some one similar.

If Man City really needed a holding midfield player and Bidcutt was the target, how much would they have to spend if we said no. A
quality player in that role playing for City would cost them maybe 10 million. Just because they are buying a player from the championship level is not a reason to pay less than if they were buying a player from Spurs.

Proven ability adds to a player's value, we know that but if the top clubs can't see his ability then something is wrong with their eyes.

I wouldn't let Bridcutt go for less than 8 million and maybe more. I would certainly add clauses for extra payments if he made the national team and if he was sold on at some point.

It's the value to his buyer that should determine his price and not the price we would have to pay to replace him.

One man's free loader is another man's plan that didn't come to fruition.

Gus has signed some players thinking that they will become more than they are when signing, it doesn't always happen, at any club.

Murray had a really poor first year at Palace, he might have been thought of as a, 'free loader,' but look at this year.

I think if Freeloader changed his thinking a tad and called these players, 'surplus to requirements,' he would be nearer the mark.

Some of the guys came in to do a job, 'at that time,' that task has been completed and now it is time for them to move on, that is not free loading but it is a tad insulting.

I don't understand the plan that Gus has for Dobbie, I really don't. Decent length of contract, must assume a decent wage, hardly plays, is he a free loader or is he Murray.

Freeloader is your definition of a , 'freeloader,' a player who doesn't rank in the top 18 players at the club? By that I mean players who will not make the starting line up of appear on the bench very often.

This is not a trick question, I really would like to know what you mean exactly when you refer to a player as a freeloader.

Top post again Vagas.But that would not upset the little girl lol.Even you must note my friend the times Hovite & brightonup post.Its clear they are both the same person as they never post anything about the story.They just jump on the backs of other peoples posts.Or pull people up on spelling mistakes,which really mean very little on a football site.Lets not forget Vagas he called the site two bob last week.So if he really feels like that how sad does that make him to still be on here.What it does prove he nothing in his life apart from this site.

i to am bemused on dobbie front. He seems almost disinterested when he does come on ,has the work rate of a snail ,even berbatov puts more into a game,can't see how he suits our system.
That said 3 out of four deadline day signings not bad?

FarGull it just seems odd to me that given the length of contract Dobbie got, his role in the squad seems so undefined.

I am not sure if he is one for next year, or if he is a purchase that has backfired on Gus.

Ok I understand now.

I think for the most part those that you would like to see gone are players that will go, as I said, they came here to do a job and that job has been done, time for them to move on.

Gus looks to be also attempting to put more quality into the developement squad, the young Latvian for one and, if he gets him, Falque from Spurs. I think as time passes we will see more signings like this. It may be that they don't all work out as planned but we do need to invest in the future, the future being two or three years from now.

I would hope that if the Latvian and Falque, should he come, don't make the top 18 for a year or so, you will not regard them as freeloaders. Over the next 12 months or so, we could have maybe 7 or 8 new players aged in the low twenties, all trying to make it to the top 18, not all of them will but only time will tell, for me they will not be freeloaders. Is Grant Hall a freeloader at Spurs?

I think he was a safe bet based on his experience. You have to remember that all the players train together and play against each other, so apart from fighting for his place and becoming fitter, he probably plays a big part on the training ground and it is extra competition for places.

Lopez has only just started to show his potential and that was because Orlandi and Bruno have been out injured.

Too early to judge but I think he was brought in for the right reasons, even if he rarely plays.

The stadium announcer told the crowd that Bridge was the sponsor's man of the match, which he was - so he was correct. Bridge was also the Guardian's man of the match, as well as the Mail's. ITV, you, me and just about everyone else reckoned it was Bridcutt.

I truly hope that Dobbie comes good, it would seem such a waste if he doesn't. As you say it has taken time to see the true value of Lopez, maybe we need to wait a little longer for Dobbie to do the same.

The amount of time Dobbie has been with the club I can't accept that there is a fitness issue with him, if there is, then why?

I remain puzzled by the Dobbie situation and I just hope that the player knows what the plan is for him.

For pity sake cut the muck throwing and lets enjoy basking in our glory after the weekend'. Whilst Pardew played on lack of stars when it comes to it they were premier squad players. bridcutt though was awsome with his control of the game, tackling and out jumping their big boys. Highlight was seeing him trying to mark young Ameobi at corner. Hardly reached height of the guys shirt number, but still out fought him. Bridges pace was class above rest and if we can find someone to pick up the crosses we will chalk up loads goals. lopez startingt to look like a better proposition at right back than Bruno who has gone off boil since injury break. Also worth mention Dicker, his movement far out weighed Hammond who was pedestrian.
let's now put the attraction of 4th round behind us and get max points v Derby and Birmingham.
Ps I work with Palace and Crawley fans, they are going to be sick of me by end of week.6

A article on our website has caught my attention, the club is looking for host families.

Host families are for kids, they are needed in the area where our new training facility will be sited.

This is the first step toward the future of Brighton and a pointer to what is to come.
Our acadamy is going to have a lot of new faces, the club are clearly expecting a influx of juniors.

A small step but a vital one. We must have the host families in place as the kids start to arrive. Just another sign of our intention to grow as a club.

It is my opinion that he is being picked so that the sponsors can meet his girlfriend!!

The common denominator between us all no matter what is written, is a passion for our club, UTA.

I agree with IrishGull that Orlandi has the same mannerisms of David Beckham,same style and run and same technique with delivery,I noticed this te first time I saw Orlandi as well.
Secondly,sadly this site is now being monopolised by Vegas and Freeloader,Vegas normally speaks common sense but now totally dominates this site,lots of people now turniong off bothering to comment regretably,how about calming it down a bit.

I think that the key to all this talk is the fact that Buckley signed for the next few years.

If Buckley played at the weekend and had a stormer - the talk would have been about him (and the fact that he has committed his future to us). It just so happens that the 2 that played a blinder at the weekend were Bridge (who we know, by rights shouldnt be here - at least if you look at his pay packet) and Bridcutt who Gus plucked from obscurity and plays like this - week in, week out. It could quite have easily been El-abd and Barnes that played out of their skin.. and the whole of the country would be talking about them!!
We need to accept that the better we are, the more high profile games we play - the more people are going to talk and speculate. We need to trust that the set up is good enough here to attract top people to join and our best players to stay. Lets face it - Gus and Tony have not done too bad in that department so far (exception of perhaps Murray who was just looking after number 1). With all that said - we can not break our wage structure and throw silly money at something that is not sustainable (and yes - more than £20k a week in our situation is not sensible). Unless of course we all would be willing to pay an extra £1 for our pies and double for our season tickets!
Good post DC Hove.
Incidently I was also impressed by the contributions from David (not the acting bit but he was fouled) and Hosko and Orlandi (what a finish) whilst they were on the pitch.

Neville, if no one else is posting comments, and two or three people get into a subject, why is that wrong?

If this site offered the option of opening seperate chat rooms then yes, I could speak one on one with Freeloader or who ever, but it doesn't.

I don't have a problem with cutting down the number of my posts, I will gladly do it if it pleases.

If the topic up for debate then has very few postings is that good for the site? I would ask you and others to post more rather than asking anyone on here to post less.

A negative does not create a positive.

But to please those that are put off I will refrain from posting.

Neville,i find it hard sometimes to keep up with the amount of posts Vegas puts on this site. I myself am a slow typer,if there is such a thing,BUT this is a forum for all our supporters and as we are luckier than a lot of similar sites and dont have a ridiculous set-up where ,you can have each others posts erased, how else would idiots like Freeloaders and "LT" spew their bile.

You should imho consider yourself lucky to be a part of a site that has people such as Vegas showing their adoration for our great club. Or simply pass the posts you dont want to read. Personally i think any fan that puts such effort into our great club is worth a read,regardless of content. UTA

By indicating that Bridge and Bridcutt are capable of performing in the Premiership Poyet is indicating that he is open to offers,Bridge is on loan and recently reported to be earning £90,000 a week most of it being provided by Man City, so no chance of us making an offer for him,but expect to see Bridcutt move on after his display at a televised match.

You said of Bridge and Bridcutt, "These two guys kind of underline how i feel about the freeloaders at the club,and also at some other clubs"

So sorry if this is repetitious but how would you feel about Bridge if you were a Man City supporter?

Is he a vile freeloader, or someone who gives 100%?

You may be right about Bridge. But would you rather he played badly so that nobody wanted him, including The Albion? He is clearly enjoying his time with us so that may go some way in what he decides to do come the close season. Not sure what his family situation is but if they are happy and settled that will be a big factor. I think and hope he will stay.
