    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.
    Given that White's contract runs until 2024, does that mean that he agreed to play for free in the final year? He goes up in my estimation even more.

      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
      Those figures look like they come straight from the spotrac.com website which has been rubbished quite a few times on here as nonsense. Plus saying Ben White is on a contract until 2023, when he signed a new 4 year deal which would have included a substantial pay rise shows that itís utter rubbish. Dunk, the club captain earning less than Adam Webster, not in a million years.

      Are you trying to suggest @Jolly Red Giant is spouting rubbish?

      You think Ben White is on £6,000 a week?

      Jack Grealish Declan Rice 🤔
      Tony Cascarino Andy Townsend 🤔

      International qualification rules are somewhat fluid
      Ireland, just like every other country, apply FIFA and UEFA rules - Townsend's grandmother was born in Kerry - Cascarino's grandfather was born in Mayo (the reason why Cascarino's heritage has been questioned is because his mother was adopted by his grandfather - legally he is Cascarino's grandfather).

      Three of Jack Grealish's grandparents were Irish born and he played gaelic football for years before he signed with Villa. Rice's grandparents were from Cork and he played at every level for Ireland from U-16 up to three full senior games. The primary reason why both of these players switched to England was financial and prompted by their agents. Both, but particularly Rice, have been trying to bury their affiliation to Ireland in the past. I have no problem with either playing for England - they are English born and are perfectly entitled to opt for England.

      Given that British colonial rule in Ireland contributed to the economic underdevelopment of the country for centuries, it is hardly a surprise that there is a huge Irish diaspora (40 million in the USA and an estimated 16million in Britain) have Irish first or second generation ancestry). Furthermore, the Irish diaspora tend to have a very strong affiliation with Ireland. That is the reason why English born players declare for Ireland.

      In contrast - the English team have picked individuals who have zero connection with England. The best example is that backbone of the English attack for 12 years - John Barnes. He was born in Jamaica - his father was a Jamaican international (actually captained Jamaica) Barnes had zero connection with England until he moved there when he was twelve because his father was appointed as a diplomat in the Jamaican High Commission in London.

      Of the current English squad - Raheem Sterling was born in Jamaica and has zero connection with England - his mother was an athlete who was a member of the Jamaican athletic team.

      This kind of stuff is very common - particularly among imperial countries -

      Holland - Edgar Davids, Regi Blinker, Aaron Winter, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink were all born in Suirname.

      The French team that won the World Cup in 1998 had the following - Vieira (Senegal) - Desailly (Ghana) - Thuram (Guadeloupe) - Karembeu (New Caledonia) - Trezuget (Argentina - technically born in France while his mother was visiting the country - his first language is Spanish) - Lama (born in France but as a baby moved and grew up in Guiana where his family were from) - on top of that - Zidane, Henry, Djorkaeff, Boghossian, and Diomede were from first generation immigrant families and Lizarazu identified as Basque rather than French.

      Of the French team that won the World Cup in 2018 - only 3 of the 23 squad were entirely French - Florian Thauvin, Raphael Varane and Benjamin Pavard. Umtiti (Cameroon) - Thomas Lemar (Guadeloupe) - Areola (born in France - his mother arrived from the Phillipines only a few days before his birth). The rest of the squad were from first generational immigrant families - e.g. Pogba's parents are from Guinea and his two older brothers are Guinean internationals.

      The Irish situation is essentially religious bigotry carried over from long ago Still alive and kicking in Glasgow sadly
      Ah now - I hope this isn't the type of history taught in England.

      Sectarian conflict in Ireland developed as a weapon for British imperialism to impose its rule in Ireland - specifically it was used as a mechanism to sow division between Catholics and Protestants during the United Irishmen's movement in the late eighteenth century - and again to drive a sectarian wedge between Catholic and Protestant workers during the Irish revolution a hundred years ago with the intent of cutting across the growing support for socialist revolution in Ireland at the time. The whipping up of sectarian conflict was and is a common tactic of British imperialism - pitting Hindu against Moslem against Sikh in India - Sinhala against Tamil in Sri Lanka - Christian against Moslem in Nigeria etc.

      The problem for British imperialism is that the sectarian divisions created by the British elites in Ireland spilled over into Britain and have occasionally raised their head in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Stockport etc. And they are currently playing a very dangerous game in the North pitting Catholic against Protestant over Brexit - something that could ultimately see the re-emergence of sectarian violence in the North of Ireland.

      He is under contract to Brighton - he can't go anywhere unless Brighton sell him.

      spotrac is just one source for this info - and I never use info from just one source.

      And Dunk signed his contract in 2018 - a year before Brighton broke their transfer fee record to sign Webster.

      Now it is possible that some of these numbers are slightly off - football clubs do not reveal contract details - but they are there or there abouts.

      This is about what Duffy is getting paid - and I have asserted that he is one of the highest paid players at the club - which is a fact. I cannot see Brighton being able to unload Duffy to a championship club without eating a major part of his contract and I cannot see any PL club signing him. Burnley has been mentioned - but given they have new owners I suspect that they will keep Tarkowski - and they haven't been linked to Duffy - they have however, been linked to another CB - Irish underage international Nathan Collins from Stoke.

      Didnít White sign a new contract last year when he agent was being a bit of a div and stirring up news stories about him? Seem to remember at the time there was talk heíd doubled his wages but that was just gossip.
