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.

So White is on about 6k a week..........if that was actually the case he’d have been off to Leeds without even bothering to pack as soon as they put an offer in :lolol::lolol::lolol:

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 it’s utter rubbish. Dunk, the club captain earning less than Adam Webster, not in a million years.

.....and less than Ali J :lolol::lolol::lolol:

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.

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 ???

Google is your friend

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.

So a typo now becomes evidence :rolleyes:

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.

Didn’t 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 he’d doubled his wages but that was just gossip.

Jolly Red Giant. If Google was your friend, or if you paid attention, you'd know Dunk signs a new contract every Summer. Beyond doubt he is in the top 2 earners at the club

Re: Duffy- more than happy for him to be sold for a token amount if its means him getting a decent move. He was outstanding for us and needs a new start.

Dunk :mad:
Welbeck :nono:

And I make no special inside knowledge, but I do know that you're spectacularly wrong.

You're in luck JRG, we are taught none of this imperial history whatsoever in England. The ignorance of the general population of our role in Ireland over the years is considerable.

Sadly that’s very true.

Oi! I learnt about the Troubles at school.

I'm happy to own my own ignorance, but I'm damned if I'll carry people's with me as well.

Nah, I'll feel free to talk for the vast majority who didn't do that syllabus thanks

Feel free to advertise your own ignorance.

The problem the English/British have had with the Irish is precisely the opposite of treating them like "English people with a funny accent". It's that they've been consistently, over hundreds of years, treated as a colonised people less important than the English.

What a load of garbage. Keiran Maguire has stated that our average salary is £48k suggesting that senior pros are on more than that. Also, it is laughable that White is on £300k a year after his revised contract.
