Sounds promising, lots of talented chelsea youth players aren't getting a look in there, we should do everything in our power to try and help these players turn their careers around.

A) there's a lot of talented players who just need the right opportunity
B) it shows we're prepared to give young players the chance they won't get at bigger clubs.
C) we have a decent track record with ex chelsea youth players (Hopkin, Forsell, Granville, Shipperley :p )

Just spoken to my mate, who said he started really well for Stockport but then faded by the middle of his loan spell. He didn't think that Bridcutt was really Championship standard yet (he added he didn't think Palace were either, so I pointed out Stockport's recent successes...)

Granville did play quite a few games when he was at Chelsea and and Man City, he was about 28 or 29 by the time we signed him!

From Tribal Football:

Crystal Palace have moved for Chelsea midfielder Liam Bridcutt.

Palace have taken Bridcutt on trial after he was released by Chelsea.

The 21-year-old midfielder failed to convince the Blues he could cut it in the top flight.

Bridcutt signed for Chelsea in preference to other clubs as a junior and seems to have got lost in ther vastness of their academy. he only played eight games for the reserves last season.

I thought he did well without shinning. He played more as an offensive midfielder last night, pushing forward and managing a couple of shots. He's tough in the tackle for a relatively slight player. I wouldn't have thought he did enough to warrant signing last night but he should get other chance before a decision is made.

From a Chelsea fan...


Liam Bridcutt is a decent little player, perhaps the Championship is one step too far for him at this moment in time, he's very composed on the ball and one of the cleanest tacklers i've seen come through our youth team ranks. He's definitely a "Makelele" who is best suited to a 3 man midfield though.

From a Stockport fan...

Bridcutt started off really well for us then he just gave-up. His attitude wilted away like no tomorrow, was pathetic to see.

Interesting. I reckon he might be worth a chance (judging by what others have said) - so long as he's not asking for a huge amount.

I thought he looked good today. He also seemed really eager to get on, spent half the first half and all the time he wasn't on in the second half warming up - he obviously wanted to play. As long as he is that eager to play every game, not just against his old club - then we should sign him.

Pennyfather

Possibly a stupid suggestion but rather than giving Bridcutt a deal, might it be worth seeing what our Welsh academy player John(ny?) Williams can do? Anyone that watches the academy regularly, what do you think about his ability, looked very impressive when i saw him a few times. About Bridcutt's height and build as well, which is why I thought about it.

I'm not convinced about Bridcutt, possibly worth a short term deal though.

Important line at the bottom there about the budget. Baiocco and Radosavljevic may be good players but may be too expensive, looks like we may not be too far off what we can offer players. May also mean Colace (who is not mentioned) may have been tied up by the time the quote was made.

I think it will be any two from four I don't think Burley has the budget for all off them if he nedds to make more signings to strengthen the squad in other areas. Rado and Baiocco are not going to west contry but Anthony Ouasafane is, so he may be looking at him again as cover for left full back

I think a team like Bristol Rovers would be perfect for Bridcutt, but I am worried for these Chelsea midfielders who never seem to progress. Tom Taiwo is now an average player at Carlisle, Anthony Grant seems to have dropped off the radar despite looking decent whenever I saw him play at Southend, god knows what has happened to Michael Woods whilst Liam Bridcutt looks to come down the same path of becoming a very average.

Scott Sinclair needs to get out of there quick, whilst I believe he will never drop down to League One on the basis of how good he was for us our country's at a stage now where we need to find a new batch of England players, if he stays at Chelsea I can't see him going on to have as many international honours as a player of his calibre should have.

The guy has got to consistently nail down a starting spot anywhere long before that happens - something that he has failed to do up to now, except perhaps whilst he was at Palace.

Its like a numbers game with the larger clubs. Get in a large number of the best youngsters in the country and hope that a certain percentage make the cut.

If you look at a number of the Chelsea's young players they were all poached from smaller clubs or European based teams. Look at the young left back for them, he was taken from Gillingham I believe.

FYI Michael Woods played against us at the weekend.

Exactly. Sinclair couldn't get a game at Wigan last season, whereas Moses took a few weeks acclimatising and was then a permanent fixture in their side. Of course there was more incentive to play Moses as someone you'd spent 2.5m on rather than someone you'd loaned who was going to sod off again at the end of the season, but the point stands.

He impressed on loan at Plymouth as well, scoring that great goal against us where he ran the length of the pitch before scoring at Home Park, if I recall. I can see Holloway trying to get him in at Blackpool to be honest.

Popester

We got the wrong chelsea player on loan. Sinclair would have been much better. Forget the 35 year old italian as well. He's hardly going to be one for the future. Ambrose provides our class. Danns the experience. We need young talented players in the midfield, not cast-offs. N'Diaye is a better prospect than anyone we've had on loan.

He was a TOP class player for us. In his time with us he outshone Victor. Both should make it to the very top. I think Aaron's point that in the majority of cases it's easier to play regularly in the ccc than wait for an opportunity with the likes of chelsea if you want to give yourself the chance of success.

I don't think so. Sinclair is an excellent player, but the Vic's potential is much more - he has everything in his locker. He did kind of "outshine Victor" in terms of fan delight, but Vic was the better player even then.
Sinclair is like Carlton Cole - lots of obvious potential, loaned all over the place (some hits, some misses), then, once settled, starts to show what he can do. Sinclair needs to make the move now.

When scott cam on on saturday he looked like as if he was one of the best in the league. He was a class above and is a better goal scorer then victor and is faster.

Bridcutt has been a revelation. Improving all the time. Scored his first goal today with a 90+4 minute winner. Definitely a serious contender for player of the season.

He might be small, but he is far from lightweight. Your loss was definitely our gain.

I think we have invested heavily in our scouting network. Barry Lloyd has been shelved (thank god) and we are going far and wider than ever before. A cigarette trip for Barry Lloyd to Lithuania has been replaced with jaunts to Argentina and so on.

We have poached the main man at Watford, football development, so I can see things going from strength to strength.

Of course, every manager has a failure or five and we have some of them. You just don't hear about them because they rarely play!

Poyet going overboard slightly, but it's a shame we didn't take him on.

Anonymous in the game against us, and shown up by Jedinak who had a comfortable game, we shall see if the same is true in March.

Looks like Gus is talking up the price knowing he will lose him this month or in the summer. MotM against Newcastle reserves and could now play for Real!!!

I thought he was very good against us, I remember him blocking a shot from zaha when he came from nowhere

No, it isnt

Not very good when on trial with us and not good enough to get in our side now

I thought he looked very tidy in the friendly with Chelsea at Selhurst.

The limited amount I have seen of him he is better than kg and o'keefe. I would think he would get in our side. Whether he would improve it enough for the spend is a different question.

Bridcutt is AMAZING. So is Will Buckley who is BETTER THAN ZAHA!!!!!

Agreed, doesn't particularly stand out to me, wouldn't get in our team and good luck to him if he thinks he'll walk straight into a Prem team, I thought the midfielder for Mansfield yesterday was a better player to be honest.

He is a good player. As a holding midfielder I wouldn't say he's better than Jedi, who is proving himself to be one of, if not the most dominant midfielder in the league.

Bridcutt seems to be more of a Leon Britton type who plays deep and moves the ball intelligently.

Would be excellent alongside Jedi, when is he out of contract? :D

Utterly absurd

Have to disagree. Id say there is one or two Brighton that would get into the Palace team and Bridcutt is certainly one of them. Class player.

Bridcutt is head and shoulders the best player at Brighton this season. He will be in the Prem in a year or 2 no question.

Being the best player at Br*ghton, isnt any decent guide of a players ability :)

He was their best player when we beat them a few weeks ago, but still wasnt even close to our midfielders, nor was he on the other 2 occasions we have played them when he's been in the team

Because of Dunk he was playing in a 4 man midfield up against 5 and he was man marking Zaha which he did a good job of, hoever it created so much space our midfield ran riot.

Close call between KG and Bridcutt.

Bridcutt is actually a very good player and I was well and truly pissed off when Burley decided not to sign him

Rumours are that he could be on the way to Norwich in this transfer window. Good player, who I think if he played for Palace and not Brighton, we would probably rave about.

In the real world, yes. But of course, in the crazy mish mash of the minds of Gus and his disciples on NSC, he's going to Real Madrid for 12m.

Thats true :) However mate you need to take your Palace specs off if you think KG is better.

I have seen Bridcutt play a few times and I have to say, I think we made as big a mistake letting him go as Brighton did letting Murray go.

True to an extent, but you need to apply historical context.

Brighton are traditionally a lower league club and were able to give Bridcutt a valuable season of experience in League 1 in which to hone his skills. We required Championship-ready players.

Norwich tend to pick up some good players out of the Championship. He could be useful for them.

I wish that Poyet would stop being such a tit with these comments. I like the fact he wants to promote his players but why go so OTT? It's like the whole Buckley deal, why bother with the Zaha comparison? Talk about Buckley.

He's a decent enough player but if we had got bridcutt it might have meant never getting Jedi which is unthinkable & I know exactly who I would much rather have
