Oscar vows: Our stars will have their say

The Argus: Liam Bridcutt Liam Bridcutt

Albion boss Oscar Garcia has put fears of losing star players Liam Bridcutt and Leo Ulloa on the backburner as he prepares for the visit of Championship leaders Leicester.

The head coach says the sought-after pair will have a big say in where their futures lie in January.

But he wants them to stay and is happy to have them back in his plans until then.

Injury-hit Bridcutt makes only his third start of the season against Leicester at The Amex today, while Ulloa is edging closer to returning from the foot bone fracture which has sidelined him since October.

Arch rivals Crystal Palace had respective bids of £1.75 million and £5 million rejected for the Seagulls’ defensive midfield general and Argentine target man at the end of the August transfer window.

Fans fear former boss Gus Poyet will try to sign one or both of them for Sunderland and Bridcutt admitted yesterday it would be hard to turn down Premier League interest.

Oscar told The Argus: “They are key players for us but at the end of the day in football it is always up to the players to decide where they want to play.

“I would be very happy if they decided to stay with us, because for me they are key players. Now it's not a problem. We will see what happens in January and what we will do.

“It depends on the players and also on the clubs. I will be happy if they stay here. If not we will start thinking when it happens, not now.”

Albion's hopes of staving off interest from Sunderland in Bridcutt have been helped by the form of South Korean Ki Sung-Yueng in the defensive midfield role for the Black Cats on loan from Swansea.

There really isn't a lot you can do about this - if the players really believe they will be better off spending a few months in the PL before they drop back whence they came that is a question for them - it says a lot about their mentality if they decide on such a short sighted view. Oh well, let's get them back to full form, if only to up the price by a few zeroes...
For the many ex-pat contributors to these columns the match is available live via the web this afternoon (http://www.firstrow
now.eu/ or http://www.frombar.c
om/ to name just two). Good luck to all. UTA

Completely agree. The question should have been dodged pre-match and if necessary faced early next week. BUT... then the answer should surely be exactly as you say - even if it's rubbish.
A club can easily accept a players' wishes internally while still maintaining a strong public position.
Have to say, I think this is poor from O.G.

Unfortunately bloom wants money, he thought he'd get it from the premier league riches but it hasn't happened so now he wants his money back for the stadium. Hence we're doing things on the cheap, not signing decent players and offloading the ones that might be worth a few quid. Lean times in store for the Albion, maybe big foreign investment is the answer.

You're entitled to your opinion, but not sure an attack on TB is valid?
As the story says, he could've taken money before, but chose not to and, all things considered, I don't see any signs of doing things on the cheap?
The timing of the managerial change didn't give OG much chance to assess the squad so what point in spending money if you're not sure what you need? You can only spend it once.
I think the players we HAVE brought in are reliable options (although some would say mediocre) without using up the budget.
For me, what this boils down to is a player - or players - who know there's an option to play at a higher level, so the club may as well take the dough that's on offer now, rather than potentially losing someone for nothing later. The test of your theory would then be if it's re-invested and I think it would be now that OG is more familiar with his squad.

Me too. The Argus are making the departure of the two seem like an inevitability when they should be reporting about specifics relating to today's game. It is unnecessary mischief making on the back of "Black Tuesday" and it is not helpful at best and pretty shameful at worst as we try and overturn Leicester today. All said and done, I expect one or both of the players will be playing for this club in January, onwards and upwards and 2.1 to the Albion today!

No this is not an "opinion", it is a carefully veiled wind up contribution, designed to create the image of fan, really considering and believing what he/she says.

You know times are getting hard when two of Albions star players are linked with Palace. My Prince Charming has money burning a hole in his pocket and can't wait to waste some more. My god, he's wasted enough already. I have to try and get a result today with what I have inherited from wurzel. If I was Bloom I would cash in now and let OG find some Spanish lower league talent pronto.

Hi, I am I missing something here?
Over the last few days I have read (and correct me if I wrong) that Ulloa was or had a chance of warming the bench but now the story above states "Ulloa is edging closer to returning from the foot bone fracture which has sidelined him since October."
Is he or will he be fit this year to lead our attack or not?

You are far too predictable now to be awarded troll status - we all know what you're going to say any any given story. At least Ringpiece writes his drivel with a modicum of juvenile humour.

If I was a Premier League team I'd be a little wary of bidding for players who spent most of the first half of the season on the physio's bench. I'd probably wait until the summer and they had proved their fitness.

Still, desperate teams do desperate things, none of which ever seem to come off.

It's right to say that Brighton are not a selling club but if offers come in and the targets of those offers want to go, does it help us to keep them if they are unhappy at staying?
The fact that the targets have time to go on their contracts makes no difference about them staying, that time simply ups the price. The only thing the club can do is ensure that we get well paid if a player wants to go, set the price, tell the lad he can go only if the price is met, I think any sensible player would not see this as a block on his ambitions.

What happened to the club stance of "Our best players are not for sale"

I didn't really want to read this after waking up on a match day. Can we give today's game more coverage please.
Unfortunately bloom wants money, he thought he'd get it from the premier league riches but it hasn't happened so now he wants his money back for the stadium. Hence we're doing things on the cheap, not signing decent players and offloading the ones that might be worth a few quid. Lean times in store for the Albion, maybe big foreign investment is the answer.
yes dear
Nice put down Vegas.

But what he says is true and we all know it.
it's true, really!!
Okay, how is it not true??
Do you think that I am that silly, you want me to answer to a rash statement that offers nothing by way of validity, it doesn't work that way. If you have an opinion give it but also back it up with some explanation as to why you think you are right, then we can debate. Some accuse me of over long comments, but as least I say why I think the way I do.
Nice try Ringtone :-))

There's always a risk, especially in the lower divisions of losing quality players to wealthier clubs at transfer time, so an article like this is just speculation on the part of Naylor. The general feeling seems to be that Poyet will come back for his old players of choice but given that Sunderland are struggling in the relegation zone and Liam and Leo still have long contracts here IMHO they'll only be tempted out if approached by successful Premiership sides. Unless Poyet pulls it out of the bag that is! UTA
