I agree..... again don't get hung up on the phrase 'lost to the vultures' a lot of players and staff were but the point was we've lost a lot of great players and staff in the last couple seasons. It just a logical concern.
Previously we lost a decent player every few years......because that's all we had that was decent to lose. The White sale exceeded all previous player sale income combined, ever. Just one sale. Then we topped that a year later. And we still keep winning. This is different gravy Brighton and Hove Albion, now.

Trust the owner and enjoy.

I definitely trust the board, ultimately if a player want's to leave we cant stop them, we can just maximise the price. Again were terrifically ran club and we do well to keep our business private too.

Decent players are a lot easier to replace than world class and world cup winning players, especially as we are not just trying to stay in The Premier League these days but become an established top half club, with dare I say..... hopes of European football.

I didn't read the article but I am guessing we haven't quoted a price?

The press love to throw numbers around and make up the selling clubs price in the hope that they are right.

Of course if someone has quoted PB or TB as giving a figure I am happy to stand corrected.

Im not saying every player was lost to 'the vultures', i.e Mwepu and Ryan but a lot of players and staff have!

I thought Ryan was a great keeper, the point was we hit gold losing him as we then promoted Bobby who's been even better! Again, great scouting and great luck.
other way round, Potter put Sanchez in and dropped Ryan, Ryan left because he was no longer first choice.

I normally ignore these quotes, but it’s the more reliable Times with the £100m figure insanely large and proper for a 21 year old star. The Standard are reporting that Arsenal are interested too. Not sure about that as they have several CM’ers already and the media seem to think that they’ll beat Chelsea to Rice.

Of course, much of this is utter tosh.

We know that Albion have not 'valued' anyone.
The club may have said don't come back unless it's a £100M bid this window, rather than repeatedly saying no to incremental offers, but I agree it's more likely we just said that their offer is way, way off being of interest.

I watched the Arsenal vs Manure match recently. Looking at Thomas Partey, he is quite limited. He just can’t pick the Hollywood pass when in possession, he reminded me a bit of Stephens.

Caicedo on the other hand is a level or two up on him in terms of his attacking game. Moises has the ability to pick out fantastic perfectly weighted long balls that break the lines and his decision making on whether to go king or short is quite perfect. I suppose this is the difference between a £50m rated player and one who TB is allegedly valuing at £100m. He can do pretty much anything on the pitch and would upgrade every single Big Six midfield. He is as good as Bellingham and better than Rice.

This is well worth reading the thread on Twitter just for the Chelsea fan’s comments.

Apparently, we’ll never sell him if he’s that price, we’re greedy, he can stay at Brighton then, he’s not worth that much, 35 million tops.Brighton have broken the transfer market.😂😂😂😂😂
It's incredible how dense so many people are.

They just don't seem to understand the concept of a club not wanting to a) sell their best players and b) the value of said player to his current team.

Armed with this lack of understanding they then act outraged at our effrontery and threaten to pull out of a deal that we neither want, asked for or have entertained.

Strange, strange people.
 


Just looking back at these threads and almost pinching myself that here we are currently 6th best team in the country and having players touted as worth 100 million! Not just 1 player but a few that the likes of Liverpool Arsenal Man City and United, Chelsea Tottenham are keeping tabs on and would have to pay serious money to get them. My god how far we have come🙂🙂🙂🙂

This is why it is not impossible we could make top 4. I genuinely believe that caicedo and Alexis are the best current pair in the league. We have a fine goalkeeper and centre backs are solid. Pervis is proving to be brilliant. Veltman is extremely reliable when he plays and gross continues to defy belief.

The attacking? Mitoma has been incredible since coming into the side and something has happened to March. I worry that Trossard going means we have limited cover for these two and although I can see Mitoma continuing on his merry way I expect a dip from March. We have also identified a striker who not only seems to link up play, hold up the ball and get assists but who also scores goals.

If lalana can stay fit then I think we have a genuine chance of top four. This is our chance. Let’s have a belting second half to the season.

Really ? That’s actually a view from Chelsea fans ? Wtf. That’s incredible. What they actually mean of course is that Chelsea now do as instructed in the transfer market if interested in one of our players. Or they can f*** off, which is the preferable option.
