He'd still be a gamble for them rather than a proven option. Part of why he's so good is the team around him being good too. I don't really know how Brighton play but he's not the man of they have to regularly defend high balls into the box and look to Go long rather than play out from the back.

I'm still fairly relaxed about January, probably foolish, I'll feel very differently if we beat Arsenal with KP, White and Harrison having great games.

Premiership footballers these days are such fucking pansies.

Re White, surely it all depends on what's in the loan deal? If they can't recall him due to the terms, they can just fuck off. If they can, then one assumes Orta and crew are working on a replacement now. [Maybe hence murmurings about Ayala - though I don't want him, to be absolutely fair he would be a danger at corners and he can defend.]
Just because the Brighton chairman said one thing in a radio interview doesn't mean he's on top of what the actual deal says.

Ooh, big ol' Freudian slip there.

What does Phil get up to on a weekend? I think maybe I'd rather not know.

I forget whether it was Hay or Smyth, but one of them said that the White deal only has one stipulation for recall and that is lack of game time. Apparently he has already achieved the required playing time, so that this clause can not now be triggered

Fuck knows what would happen if they insisted and paid us compensation to get him back

:mrgreen: Weekends? Generally watching Leeds and that defines my mood for the rest of it. Rest of the time though...

More seriously, I tend to use the swipe style phone keyboard, balls and heals aren't too far apart in swipe path.

I guess they'd put pressure on the player to ask to be released, as soon as the player wants to go you're fucked no matter what the contract says. White would be fucking crazy to not want to see out this season with us if we're still top in January, he only has to look at the former players who attended the centenary thing to know what it means to achieve something here.

From Ben's point of view, going up with Leeds and staying there will be much better for his future than going back to Brighton.

dunno if it's relevant but he is a south coast boy, not sure how he's finding it up north.

Saw a lady put her high heels in the box once. Can't say I thought it very hygienic TBH but ultimately not my problem.

Yep, that's why I'm relaxed about it.

We have a permanent option on Harrison and City have no direct use for him given their squad.

Costa is costing us £15m in the summer. Wolves will be delighted by that.

Meslier seems to want to be here and rumours we might make it permanent.

Clarke has barely played, we'd not really miss him.

Nketiah is more of a problem, if they recall him I don't see us finding someone who'll even compete with Bamford given the time it'll take to bring them up to speed. Hopefully he'll get a few games in December and Arsenal will be content to leave him here.

Well , its certainly not affecting his football so I guess he might be enjoying it .

He spent a year in Newport then a year in Peterborough, last I checked neither of those were on the south coast.

A pedant writes: spending ten minutes on loan somewhere doesn't make you a 'boy' of a locality, does it? No idea whether White likes moving around but if it wasn't something he's 100% sold on, you can see that he might think a limited term loan is manageable, but a permanent move isn't.

Also, Newport is on the south (Wales) coast. . .

The issue with White will be if someone makes a bid to sign him permanently, and Brighton want to sell him.

Then he'll go.

Loan wise he's pretty well locked up here.

He's worth more than that, minimum £30 to a side like Chelscum with deep pockets
