Watford send Bridcott back to Blues

Watford send Bridcott back to Blues

Watford have chosen not to renew Liam Bridcott`s loan spell from Chelsea when it comes to an end this evening…

…and it`s a good decision all round by Brendan and his management team.

The Blues reserve team skipper started off brightly at Vicarage Road but has since managed just 11 minutes of football in 2009 with Brendan Rodgers opting to play Jack Cork with Watford`s own Ross Jenkins dishing out the teenage kicks.

Speaking of Bridcott, Brendan Rodgers stated "He has got Championship experience, helped Watford out and played in a Carling Cup quarter-final [v Spurs]. He had a terrific opening game against Doncaster and played well away to QPR. He can go back knowing he has made a good contribution."

Take off the blinkers Brendan. In truth, despite a promising debut at home to Doncaster, Bridcott, been found wanting in the Championship. He appears to run out of puff about the hour mark (and gets removed from the action), is clearly too short to play at full back and his sideways /backwards passing has not gone down well with the Vicarage Road regulars.

More worrying however is news that Rodgers might not yet have written Bridcott off his shopping list come the summer. The Hornets gaffer added "He is one that when we are looking in the summer, he is a boy who will be an interest for not just us but other clubs".

He`s got a lot o` learning to do before he commands a regular first team berth in WD18 though Brendan.

Good move shows Buck is nobody's fool, and Bridcott's clearly behind Cork, Jenkins and Williamson at present so there was no point him staying around. Has good skills though and can become a decent player - just needs to learn how to play in the hurly burly of the Championship.
