Apparently according to some here Crystal Palace were a massive step up, so I guess that also applies to Brighton!

As for a replacement for Saturday, maybe we saw him last Saturday, he certainly played better than Webster!

Does anyone seriously think we are currently anywhere near Palace’s level? Zaha, Townsend, Benteke .... etc.

Their stadium is a cross between a Mechano set and an Ikea flat pack compared to ours. But that's about it .

Seriously? Have you ever been to the Amex before. Very impressive stadium, and certainly not a run of the mill new build, as you suggest.

C'mon, 25million? I think we all need a reality check. I can't see anyone paying that amount. If the transfer does happen, we won't be told the price anyway.

That's half a round on the concourse in 2025.

Thought FGR's number 19 (think was released by Boro?) had a great game last week. His ability to dribble past out strikers and midfielders reminded me a bit of Webby!

judging by what I saw Saturday,not many wouldn't be able to dribble  through our lot.

It’s not just the stadium though, irrelevant of what your own personal views are on it, they have the whole infrastructure already there, the stadium, the training facilities & all the staff in place.

We are still training on what is basically just a playing field, our infrastructure has only just been being put together & there are still arguments that our staffing isn’t all there yet, our scouting, our SLO, our general managing of everyday matters (season tickets, merchandising etc).

Brighton have had all this in place for a good few years & even Ipswich can currently boast better training facilities than we can offer our professional footballers!

We are finally becoming professional both off & on the football but we still have a long way to go before we are actually able to do the majority of things right, let alone everything right.

Anyone who thinks that the likes of Brighton, Bournemouth & Norwich (just for example) have nothing on us are sadly mistaken, we are years behind but we are getting there, slowly!

We can all try and appraise the situation, but it really does depend on what's going on in training and behind the scenes. If he wants away, then we've already lost the player of last season. He certainly wasn't there on Saturday by all accounts.

I say get him out. Make them pay and move on. Otherwise it will turn toxic and he won’t perform.

25 for him

15 for LK ??

Was it 3 for Magnússon?

6 for JB

7 for Flinty

Nearly 60 million quid on sold defenders in 2 seasons. Mad or what

Is Brighton more of a step us than us? They're an established prem team but their growth has been stagnant since promotion and the appointment of the Swansea lad hasn't filled a lot of their fans with confidence.

I've said before if we allow Webster to go, it is a severe lack of ambition

On behalf of the club?

If Webster moves on, he will get something like a 4 year deal to play in the Premeirship on i guess £60k/£70k  a week. That alone is going to turn his head and rightly so.

Also, the club cannot turn that kind of money down.

Most fans want him to stay but 25 million!!!! Come on, thats 21.5 million more than the reputed 3.5 million we paid for him.

This after a 12 month period.

Huge profit and as a business it would be the right decision to sell.

it will also give us the opportunity to bring in a top striker and creative midfielder.

I would give Taylor Moore a go, see how he gets on. We also have Baker and Wright who can do a job back there.

Like it or not, its a no brainer to sell for that amount of money.

We're developing but we're doing so from behind- on and off the pitch, all areas.

We've tried or are trying to do in 5 years what quite a few established top 2 division clubs completed in the last 15-25 years.

Brighton were ahead of us in infrastructure, and though we're playing catch up it is still catchup- it's grown as a club vastly in just 5 years.

@spudski often posts some interesting insight into this. We talk about new ground- and this is regardless of how great it looks, this is from an infrastructure, revenue POV etc- Sunderland had this and more 22 years ago. Stoke to an extent similar, Derby same year. To give 3 examples of clubs we are either in a similar bracket to on the pitch or ahead of- it's been fast tracked very well but yeah we're playing catch up, of course we are- still developing it.

Hell even MK Dons had the larger ground with better corporate facilities than us before we did.

the story linked in the OP is old isn't it? Talks about Brighton maybe losing Dunk and didn't that happen a week or so ago?

No. Nothing’s gone through yet. 

Maguire still waiting on Utd

Thus, Leicester still waiting to buy Dunk

Thus, Brighton still waiting for Webster

Once one of them happens they’ll all happen.

At the risk of stating the obvious, they got promoted and established themselves as a Premier League club! 

People talk down about the likes of Palace, Brighton, Bournemouth etc as if we’re ‘bigger’ than them - we’re not.

In terms of being a draw to a potential signing or current player, even the tiniest Premier League club would be way ahead of us.

And if the first doesn't happen, none'll happen?

Funny feeling Leicester might hold firm.
