Bye bye Webby. 

You go with our best wishes and I hope you make a real go of it in the Prem.

We thought Flinty was irreplaceable, and you showed us that it could be done - and in many ways could be done better!

Anyway, kerching! and onwards and upwards.

What happened to all this 30, 25, 22 stuff then...............they've mugged us off !

according to our site its undisclosed, so unless you are mates with JL or MA, not sure you will know how much he has actually been sold for or what future payments we may get. The press figures are speculation, which may or maynot be accurate. as for the 30M, That was always a starting point and very unlikely to get.

No big surprise. We all knew the deal was happening and prepared ourselves to lose him. Good money, now let’s invest it well in the future. I loved Webster and watching him play but he’s not our player now. I will watch his career with interest and of course wish him well, but we have got to move on now.

He looked a class above all season, inevitable he's gone. Just glad we got a decent sum for him that can help raise the overall quality of the squad.

Thanks and good luck Webby.

Down to @Kid in the Riot to give us the full lowdown again then?

What a cracking deal. Injury prone, one good season (very good) and £20m?!

Good luck to him, quality on the ball, hope he does well at Brighton.

Sad to see him go as a really good player and all the best for the future, £20mil+ way to much to turn down.. 

But for me it's now what we do with the money that's counts a really important time for the season I think (hoping for a bit of good signing news today please)

Really is a fantastic deal. No one thought this when we signed injury prone Adam Webster. Bristol City dealing in 20 million plus transfers . Never thought I would see that. How we are growing as a football club is very encouraging

We could not have kept him, it seems obvious he wanted to go to Brighton.

Big credit should also go to LJ and scouting team for recognising the talent and bringing him in, to turn a profit on a player in 1 year is fantastic business

On to the next prospects

Anyone else have a sick feeling in their stomach like you’ve just caught your mrs in bed with another bloke? Gutting.

 

Good luck Webby, you deserve your chance of top flight football.

 

City, you better have some signings up your sleeves. Hoping the full £20M will be reinvested by the end of the window and really hoping City will have some announcements for us today.

I agree but we've all known for weeks that Prem teams were in for him but we don't appear as yet, to have a replacement lined up. 

We've mostly all acknowledged that our priority has been to sign a striker and that hasn't happened. 

We've been told for weeks that these were priorities and that we were being 'bold'. Tommy Rowe. Bold? 

Palmer, Kalas and Da Silva are good signings and we know what we're getting. 

I've heard it all before. Bold my arse but I hope I'm proved wrong

The defender reflected warmly on his time at Bristol City, but could not hide his enthusiasm at what lies ahead with the Seagulls.

“From the moment I walked in at Bristol City, I fell in love with the place, because it is a great club. It was disappointing that we couldn’t get into the play-offs, but personally, it was a good season and I have really fond memories from my time there.

“Coming here, you can see that everything is in place to succeed. The training ground is unbelievable, it’s a great place to work and I’m very excited to get going.”

You two are certainly the glass half full type of people. Wish I was as optimistic as you.

And how do you know we haven't got a replacement lined up?

I'd be hugely surprised if we haven't.

You don't sign someones replacement before you have sold them do you? What if the deal falls through? What if Webster gets injured? Then your stuck with a extra CB minus the transfer fee you have paid plus minus the 20 million.

I think I am in a minority of one, but I am pretty relaxed about selling him, and the need to get a replacement lined up asap.

Baker is a great (if injury prone) Championship centre back.

Wright can play centre back.

Moore looks to be developing in to fine young centre back.

Have to wonder as well, just what the influence of Kalas alongside ANY centre back is worth. Could it be that his ability allows other players to perform without fear. And with an upgraded keeper behind them, maybe it's time for one of those 3 to shine.

Obviously, I wouldn't turn down a centre back better than those 3, but it's a position we do have depth of cover in.

Chill peeps, it'll be fine.

Well we seem to be struggling to get the striker and defensive midfield player in now we have to get a centre half as well. Ashton will have to earn his money in the next 5 days.

Bobby Reid - one good season in a City shirt 10M.

Adam Webster - one good season in a City shirt - 20M.

Who's next?

Its pretty sickening considering we have lost one of our main cbs one day before the start of the season . Its a little easier seeing him go than say flint as he was only here a season and we've made a great profit! 

He is however even harder then Flint to replace  , if we can get a cb anything near him and a proven goal scorer then it'll all be worth it . 

I do have less expectations for top 6 now (based on current signings) , just thats just being realistic.

Again excellent money for a talented player. I hope this sends a message to the footballing community that Bristol City is a great platform to take your career forward.

I don't want to be a complete downer on the whole thing but that must be 70 old million in the last year in transfers. I'd like to see us now more aggressive in the transfer market and get those peices we desperately need.
