Leeds United: Fans react to Phil Hay’s opinion on Liam Bridcutt

Leeds United: Fans react to Phil Hay’s opinion on Liam Bridcutt - Leeds United

The Athletic’s Phil Hay has shared his thoughts on former Leeds ace Liam Bridcutt, who is currently on loan at Lincoln City from Nottingham Forest. 

Hay went on to discuss Bridcutt’s brief spell at Leeds United, including the “painful” negotiations between the Peacocks and his parent club Sunderland.

The Scotsman was infamously touted as being “good enough for Real Madrid” by ex-Brighton & Hove Albion boss Gus Poyet but it is fair to say he hasn’t quite lived up to these expectations.

Who was Leeds United's first £100k transfer signing?

After initially arriving at Elland Road from the Black Cats on a short-term loan, Bridcutt spent two seasons with Leeds, although he failed to score a single goal in the Championship despite making 53 appearances for United.

However, the midfielder put in a string of defensive shifts for the Whites, making 3.5 tackles per game, averaging 1.4 interceptions, and attempting 1.8 dribbles on average (via WhoScored). He was even made club captain, but his career has suffered from a dramatic fall from grace ever since.

Indeed, the Chelsea academy graduate has played for a number of different clubs across many divisions up until now, and now plies his trade with the Imps in League One.

Unsurprisingly, the journalist’s tweet prompted lots of replies from Leeds United fans. One fan dubbed the 30-year-old as a “classy player” while another added he is a “poor man’s Forshaw” in reference to the current star who plays in a similar role.
