Mullery fears Bridcutt has made a mistake leaving Albion

The Argus: Liam Bridcutt may struggle to get in the Sunderland side says former Albion boss Alan Mullery Liam Bridcutt may struggle to get in the Sunderland side says former Albion boss Alan Mullery

Liam Bridcutt has been warned he might have made a mistake as he heads to Sunderland.

The midfielder is expected to be unveiled today – in time for the Tyne-Wear derby – as Gus Poyet’s latest signing on a three-and-a-half year deal.

Albion are believed to be receiving about £3 million for the man Poyet plucked from obscurity in the early days of the 2010-11 season.

But former Seagulls manager Alan Mullery has told supporters Bridcutt might have been better off staying at The Amex.

Albion’s ambassador, speaking at a fans’ forum streamed live on the club’s YouTube channel last night, said: “We’ve lost the boy Bridcutt.

“I wish him all the very best but I think he has made the wrong decision. He’s going to go to a football club where they have got midfield players equally as good as he is and he’s going to find it hard to get in the side.

“He’s going to find it hard to play in the Premiership just like that halfway through the season.

“He would have been far better off staying at Brighton until the summer or even for 18 months and be involved with a side that looks as though they are going to win promotion or the possibility of play-offs to be in the Premiership next season.”

Disagree, think its best all round,Bridcutt was not the same player after Poyet left,his heart was elsewhere. Albion have done well to cash in,personally i wish him well,and I think he will be a regular for his new club,good luck Liam.

Good luck to the lad. I hope he does well, he's certainly good enough. I wouldn't be surprised if Gus promised him a move if he ever got a Prem job, which would explain the dip in form, but it's football. As we enjoy the arrival of Stephens, Charlton fans will be bemoaning his departure.
Anyway, a technicality perhaps, but it's not done yet.

I have no view either way other than an expression of delight that this whole saga appears to be (almost) over. There has been a great deal of hype around Bridcutt's move and I hope that he lives up to the Mackam's expectation - for his and for Poyet's sake. He's a great player and I have no doubt that he will make it at Premiership level, only it's a great shame it couldn't have been with the Albion.

So, that's now done and we can all move forward. If we spend the money wisely, it will have been a good move for us too and the signing of young Dales Stephens would appear to be a good start. Any more before 23:00 tonight, I wonder?

Oh, and there's a small matter of a match against Watford on Sunday!!!

Bring it on!!

It has to be said you can't blame Bridcutt in the slightest. And I think Mullers is wrong I think Bridcutt will play and will flourish, he is good enough for sure.

Also, on the subject of us looking like a team who might go up this year , I just struggle to see it now. There is effectively two places up for grabs and forest will surely take one of them, look at the quality they have brought in. So one place realistic and we need to be better and stronger than reading/wigsn/midds/
Ipswich. It certainly won't be easy. The fact is we are a great side but we absolutely have to stop missing chances and score the goals we deserve. Roll on the end of the window so the players can group together and push on.

Agree it won't be easy but I do think we have a better chance than you're suggesting. Forest are flaky and while we certainly need to be tighter ourselves, we fans can sometimes view change as 'bad'. You suggest Forest have brought in 'quality' but who's to say we haven't/won't too? It seems the grass is always greener......

This is a good move for Bridcutt. He obviously wanted to play in the Premier, and he took the chance now, rather than wait to see if Albion might be promoted this time around.

In some respects, we were probably lucky to hold onto the player after the play-off debacle. That tie obviously tested the resolve of a few within the squad, as well as the talents of the incoming management team. But nothing stands still in this world, least of all a club with such a growing stature as the Albion. Therefore, it must be fair to say that the quality and strength of the squad continues to grow apace, due to the combined efforts of the entire management team, not just the odd individual.

Good luck to Bridders, but the future starts here and now, and that future is the squad in place at just after 11pm tonight.

Rubbish! Look at the facts, Barnes was responsible for most of the missed chances, gone. Bridcutt not the same player as last year, going/gone. Both have been replaced with fresh blood with something to prove and plenty of ambition. Yes we could do with a little further strengthening but he day is young and the squad has talent and should cope. Ince will become a star over the next few months, Oscar has done wonders.

It is not hard to see the thinking behind what Mullery has said, Bridcutt will have to fight for his place, but that could be good or bad for the lad, only time will tell as to whether or not he can make the step up.
From Brighton's perspective on this sale it was a good bit of business, and I tend to think that the numbers being quoted by the BBC are probably correct, I think the club has deliberately leaked them.
I think Sunderland will avoid the drop, I also think that Poyet might get offered a job, in the next 18 months or so, with a different club. It will be interesting to see of Bridcutt becomes a Gus target again should he land the managers job at a more successful club. I hope we have a sell on clause.

Liam Bridcutt had the best workrate of any player at the club two seasons ago. Footballers need to move on unless they are one of a handfull of players like Gerrard. He must feel good at being wanted, and as most of you say, good luck to him, and thanks. The warning concerns what happens if Gus does not stay, will Bridcutt be out on a limb? He's good enough to weather that.

I'm not **** about the fee - I think Brighton on the whole are pretty miraculous at selling players for profit - Nooney springs to mind - think its a bargain for Gus. When I say "every bit as effective" - I realise he won't score goals but he performs his job as a holding midfielder with as much accomplishment - if I have one criticism over the years it would be his passing which would preclude him playing at top level ( remember Gus -- Real Madrid etc! ). Of course he wont play for Manchester but Cleverley manages it! I totally agree about Ince - ready made replacement and more attack minded with more physical presence - if BHA continue to attract/produce players like that then we are all happy! Hopefully Stephens is a good prospect also. So yeah I am having a laugh but Mullery is so dismissive .... my kids say I have dual personality ( nationality) - I bleed a bit blue & white as well after my 10th year at Albion matches .......

Big loss -- would be a bargain at £3.5M methinks ...[/p][/quote]Mancgulled you are having a laugh if you think Bridcutt is in the same class as adam Johnsone, Johnsone scores goals and is creative. Bridcutt has no premiership experience and can you remember when he last scored. If the fee is 3.25m and there is 0.5m in add ons that is good busines dont forget there was no fee involved when he originally signed. I would be upset if it had been Rohan Ince that had been sold, the lad can do the same job and is more attack minded and I know man utd are struggling but that just sounds ridiculous that they would ever be interested in Bridcutt who is very lightweight and just to defensive minded for a club like that.[/p][/quote]I'm not **** about the fee - I think Brighton on the whole are pretty miraculous at selling players for profit - Nooney springs to mind - think its a bargain for Gus. When I say "every bit as effective" - I realise he won't score goals but he performs his job as a holding midfielder with as much accomplishment - if I have one criticism over the years it would be his passing which would preclude him playing at top level ( remember Gus -- Real Madrid etc! ). Of course he wont play for Manchester but Cleverley manages it! I totally agree about Ince - ready made replacement and more attack minded with more physical presence - if BHA continue to attract/produce players like that then we are all happy! Hopefully Stephens is a good prospect also. So yeah I am having a laugh but Mullery is so dismissive .... my kids say I have dual personality ( nationality) - I bleed a bit blue & white as well after my 10th year at Albion matches .......
