Cooper.

A good defender clearly, plus the style of Millwall has to be taken into account but a like for like he would appear not to be?

@Davefevs - How does he come out in your WyScout stuff?

Do we actually need to sign another CB we do after all have Wright, Baker, Moore & Vyner. I am sure one of these is capable of stepping up. Yes Webster would be a loss but a lot on here thought we would not replace flint. Webster couldn’t get a game st Ipswich!!!

This would have been a great loan move, and allowed us to spend money on a striker..

Every other clubs' signings seem to be the ones we should have made according to much of OTIB.

Wonder how many other clubs' fans are equally wishing they should/could have signed any one of Kalas, Dasilva, Palmer or Szmodics - let alone all of them?

Were fans also saying that Pukki and Maupay were the goalscoring strikers we should have signed when they were signing as (relatively) unknowns  for Norwich and Brentford?

100% we need another CB capable of playing the full season

As I have previously written, Webster going could make us more unpredictable as a team.

Do we have any centre backs other than Baker , comfortable on the left ? 

There's good unpredictability and there's bad unpredictability!

Scott McKenna a shout really. Been speculation around him all summer with champ clubs offering 3m which they have refused. We have the funds to bid more than that and surely wage would not be outrageous. I like the idea of McKenna for 4.5-5m and 10-15k a week. He looks very good and still young(almost 2 years younger than Webster).

On hols, so only access to very basic stuff.

That is a very good shout - read an article this morning where Del Boy was saying that they had not received any bids but that could easily change.

It looks like we are selling a centre back who previously had a a reputation of being a sick note but played the whole season for us.

id love to see Baker have a injury free season. How good was he when he arrived!

He did go to Webster's High School which puts him in good stead.

Moore would be targeted mercilessly by Leeds and they'd win, it's not the time to throw him in.

Kalas and Baker for me.  At least both are hard as nails and won't take any of the Leeds shite.

I agree. I'm a big fan of Baker. If we can keep him fit and level headed, I reckon, especially playing alongside Kalas, he'll do a good job for us. I know Webster was very good and had a bit of class but I'm just wondering if Kalas made him look better than he was, we shall see. Hope Baker will be fit for Sunday.

Is this a copy and paste comment from last season when we sold Flint? Look how that turned out. 

Trust the plan.

Actually I was ok with Flint leaving, we had someone lined up who had a lot of promise and as I said, unless we have someone lined up it's going to have an impact.

Flint was never strong at the back, he was ok but he offered something on set pieces, what we lost there we improved on ten fold in making the defence stronger. This year is different, we've gone from having the best center back pairing in the league to having half of it. Baker is not as good as Webster by a long shot and Wright is at best a back up player.

We genuinely need a good CB to come in and replace Webster and we still remain short a top notch striker.

Well, it's actually literally two days before the Leeds game. 

I might be in the minority here, but if Webster goes (still absolutely nothing official) I would be more than happy if we didn't sign another CB and spent the money on a striker/midfielder instead. We have Baker, Wright, Vyner and Moore who aren't exactly shoddy replacements. Moore in particular I'd like to see given a run in the side. 

Baker won't play a full season and is not as good as Webster, Wright is a backup player at best, Vyner and Moore both are still nowhere near ready to be part of a promotion winning Championship side although both show enough promise for the future.

Thinking about that sell-on fee when Brighton sell him for £65m in two years time.

I’d be disappointed with 65. If Harry is going for 80-90! With inflation at least 100m.😂

My thinking too tbh. If BHA desperately want Webster then you’d think we’d have got him as part of the deal if we wanted him.

Sign any more from then and we will be signing "Blue is the colour" at AG and renaming The Lansdown "The Shed"! :shocking:

A strong defence is the foundation of any successful team. In Kalas and Webster we had arguably the best defensive pairing we'd had in years. The main thing that stopped us getting over the finishing line last season was a lack of goals. So it made sense to try and hold on to Webster for another season, while strengthening our attack. 

Norwich conceded 57 goals, 4 more than us, last season (and West Brom, 62, and Aston Villa, 61, let in more too). You've got to score some, as well. 

I wouldn't doubt (maybe you would) that we tried to hold on to him but once it became clear that he wanted to move up to the Prem, we then took the best course of action available to us.

Players have the power now, unlike in AD's era. We have to operate in the football world as it is, now, in 2019, not as we wish it would be, or as it once was.

At that sort of price, I doubt if his wishes even came into it. As soon as this sort of money got talked about he was going if he liked it or not. 

What this transfer also shows is that through us there is a pathway to the Premier League and we won't stand in a players way.

But lots on here dismiss the Scottish Premiership as a ‘pub league’ so surely all players from up there are useless?!

Yes, good point. I'm sure Johnson wanted to keep Webster the footballer (and flog Baker and Taylor for £22m) but SL and MA and the "plan" dictate that that sort of money, that profit in 12 months, allowing us to strengthen more than one area of the team, can produce a stronger team than 2018/19's, which could only manage 8th (not good enough for promotion).
