    Huge issue with Duffy is the wages. EFL Finances are demolished so unless hes going to take a 50% pay cut seems unlikely.

    Also smaller PL clubs will be tightening their belts after no crowds for a year, so £50k+ a week for Duffy might be tricky
    900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      I think it's thought to be £40k a week which must be pretty average for a defender for a lower PL club.

      He was born in Northern Ireland.
      Clearly you know (or won't acknowledge) the history of the island of Ireland

      Because when he signed in 2016, he definitely had clauses to Match Dunk's annual increase, White, Webster, Lallana, Maupay and Welbeck. What on earth makes you say something like that

      I'd be very surprised if that's the case. He may have been when he signed but we will have signed players on higher wages since he was consigned to the bench and lower. In Potter's first season he only made 12 starts in the Prem. I would suspect that whilst the likes of Dunk will have clauses automatically matching higher salaries I doubt that would apply to a player out on loan.

      MOM last night for Ireland.

      Problem with inconsistent form is that could be a once-off.
      Whoever picked Duffy as MOTM against Hungary must not have watched the game (or maybe he promised them a few pints after the match). Egan and O'Shea were head and shoulders above him at the back (O'Shea would have been my MOTM - didn't put a foot wrong all night and pinged some good passes out of defence - after him, both goalies, Bazunu and Kelleher, played exceptionally well). Duffy had one good block during the game. However, he panicked every time the ball was at his feet and he was constantly caught for pace - dragging down attackers when they got passed him. He almost caused two goals by panicking - once when the ball was passed back to him in the box by Molumby (who should have known better), instead of hoofing it out, he kicked it straight to a Hungarian who forced a fantastic double save from Kelleher to keep it scoreless. Ireland drew that game not because of Duffy, but in spite of him.

      Jack Grealish Declan Rice 🤔
      Tony Cascarino Andy Townsend 🤔

      International qualification rules are somewhat fluid

      The Irish situation is essentially religious bigotry carried over from long ago Still alive and kicking in Glasgow sadly

      Duffy signed a five year contract in 2018 for £45K a week.

      Lallana is the highest paid player at Brighton - because he was a free transfer - he's on about £90K a week. After that the next players are on £50K a week - Jahanbakhsh, Webster and Gross. Duffy is in the next tier with Wellbeck, Dunk, Propper and Maupay. White has a very small contract - something like £300K a year until 2023.

      You are either a very senior tax specialist in the south east, who has a number of significant clients or somebody who spends too much time on the Internet. I'm really not sure which
