    Youngsters and Checkatrade

    It’s only been running for 4 seasons, so maybe too early to tell. Although I’d guess that the percentage of players that make it to the senior squad will be very low, not because their route is blocked but just because because most U23s just wont be good enough. The difference in standard between senior and U23 is huge even for the top youth league. To give an idea, Brighton U23s beat Man City 5-0 a couple of weeks ago and then got outplayed by Luton (presumably not even their strongest team) in the Checkatrade a few days later.

    About 2-3m a year in running costs.
  3. True, but for a team relegated in 12/13, their final year will have ‘only’ been 8m, so it’s still a surprise to see them on income comparable with QPR, who will have received around £20m for their 2nd year of parachute payments.
  4. Sort of. QPR were last relegated from the Premier League in 14/15, so would’ve been on their 2nd year of parachutes. Reading’s income is a surprise though. It’s not as if they get huge crowds or anything.

    Hughton and Jos.

    Duffy and Murray weren’t signed until the summer after that, and Knockaert was a January signing in Hughton’s first full season. The key key to success, in my opinion, was the recruitment in season 15/16, which was almost enough. Murray and Duffy provided the extra quality the following season to make auto promotion with games to spare.

    They didn’t. Where did you get that info from?

    We doing a Brighton?

    The chairman sacked Gus Poyet after losing the playoff semi in 2013. The sacking was nothing to do with results, which had more than met expectations that year.

    Chansiri........

    Is Dejphon Chansiri a successful businessman in his own right or just the very rich son of a successful businessman?

    FFP question.

    There's no rule preventing a chairman or companies related to him from buying up hospitality seats, boxes etc., apart from that it has to be at fair market value. Buying up a spare 10,000 normal fan seats to give away would probably not pass FFP assessment. It would also be a bit annoying to have paid a few hundred quid on a season ticket when thousands of freebies are being given out every home game.

    Could we get worse than Carlos??

    If you go for the last 3 games of the season, when Brighton lost 2 and drew 1, then Wednesday absolutely smash it!

    Brighton 51 Wednesday 50 Same GD of +15 though!

    I've checked this now by comparing the table after 18 and 46 games. It was closer than I thought but I was right: Brighton - 55 Newcastle - 54 Wednesday - 53

    Final 28 games, as in from game 18 onwards? Almost certain both Newcastle and Brighton got more points.
  14. Still rate Bridcutt as a very good player at Championship lever. Was excellent at Brighton.

    FF to Brighton

    His agent probably put £20 on it to get the rumour mill starting.
