We let Hendrick walk away
No we didn't. We tried to get him to sign a new deal but he wouldn't. Nothing you can do when a player opts to run down his contract.

On top of that we give Stephens a 2 year ( probably with a plus one year ) contract which could mean that either Cork or Westwood will miss out on being offered a new contract, should our next move be to add a younger player to our central midfield - which it should be.
Why should it mean Cork or Westwood missing out on being offered a new contract?
Long Time Lurker wrote:

So we will have spent the balance sheet equivalent of £12.5m to bring in a player who is worse than Hendrick ( with no resale value ) who will be soaking up wages for 2 years and possibly result in the loss of Cork or Westwood who are better players.
What are you basing that on?
Long Time Lurker wrote:

Considering that he is approaching the end of his career and he only has one year left on his contract with Brighton he isn't worth 2.5m. No other team is remotely interested in buying him
Approaching the end of his career at 31? And how are you so well briefed that you know that no other team is remotely interested in buying him?

The only reason we are signing a player like Stephens is because we failed to bring in a younger central midfielder when we had the perfect opportunity to do so. Rigg is mates with Dan Ashworth and this allows Brighton to shift a player who is hardly going to feature for them this season off their wage bill and add to their bank account.
Really?
Long Time Lurker wrote:
Wed Sep 23, 2020 7:45 pm
That might free up Rigg to spend the bulk of our transfer funds on an expensive addition that is more in line with his own vision for us, somebody like Harry Wilson.
Rigg doesn't spend money on players.

Regular as clockwork, thanks for commenting.

I've already responded to you previously about player amortisation on another thread in which I demonstrated that I know perfectly well how it works. Had Hendrick signed a new contract, which wasn't entirely out of the question, his value on the balance sheet would have been refreshed ( so to speak ). However, I should also point out that the amortised value of a player doesn't fully reflect their real world value.

I genuinely don't know where you get the idea that I hate the club or Rigg from. As I pointed out previously a person can disagree with the effectiveness of a person in their professional capacity without bearing them any personal ill will.

If that wasn't the case then any criticism of any aspect of our club, management or players, would represent a direct personal attack instead of the expression of an opinion in relation to work done. The snowflakes of the world might disagree with that.

This board is a vehicle for the expression of opinions, which others can choose to agree with or disagree with. On the basis of all the posts that you have previously directed towards me, I now take it that you will jump to disagree with any and every opinion I express. That is perfectly fine, but I would like to believe that it doesn't also mean you have a personal vendetta against me or that you wish me any personal ill will.
Funny that you think I jump on every one of your posts - especially as up until this week I have spent little time on this board for a while....but hey ho don’t take it personally. I think you talk a lot of rubbish - that’s my opinion...I also think you do have an unhealthy obsession with Rigg.
And saying you “hate” Burnley is a bit tongue in cheek and more a reflection that you rarely have a good thing to say about the club and personally I find that an odd way of supporting your club which as pointed out by me and others is supposed to be something you enjoy and not something that brings you the level of frustration and angst it appears to bring you

In terms of player amortisation I’m not going to get in a debate with someone who is so very clearly out of his depth - go do a book keeping course or something and come back to me when you have a bit of basic knowledge

Doubt there is a hold up. As far as I know it's done - they are probably just waiting until all the media stuff is done before announcing it.

BFC site mentions Stephens and says he is travelling north today to fianlise things. No doubt he'll then do the media stuff before the final announce ment.

If you listen to the last sentence of Sean's post match interview carefully, he was far more upbeat than recently. He was asked about other signings and he didn't just shrug it off. He said "Yes, let's see what develops in the next few days." That to me suggested something else is close.

What did you want him to say? I wouldn't have expected him to say anything about it. Graham Potter, the Brighton manager, said yesterday there was nothing in it. It's all got out through Naylor.
Maybe something more like, 'We've got one deal progressing quite well', not 'nothing is close'?

The latter seems a strange response if a medical is scheduled for a signing.

To then come out a couple of days later and say the deal is pretty much done..?

The best days were before they introduced transfer windows and you could buy and sell players at any time.

No biting fingernails then, and it was rare to hear about a tranfer until the buying club announced it's completion.

The good old days.

Just to be clear on this point, this isn't how it works.

The capitalised value on the balance sheet would have been any signing on fee/agent's fee related to the new contract and that's it.

Where do they sign these days? In the boardroom or down at Barnfield?

this should have been announced so it's on hold, clearly Dyche has been told of the takeover and is currently putting in a bid for Gini Wijnaldum instead

ah, stuck on the M6 through B'ham... ;) or typed Burnsley into his sat nav? ;) UTC
Clive Holt's still on the Board ... I'm surprised he didn't suggest cadging a lift up on the Brighton Coach that took their team to Deepdale last night ... It'd save on the mileage allowance !! ;) ;)

I don't think anything is on hold being serious. I'd expect an announcement, maybe before it goes dark.
