Albion have signed Sam Baldock from Bristol City on a four-year deal.

They have secured the player - who has been consistently linked with a move to the Amex during the current transfer window - for an undisclosed fee.

Baldock, 25, was top scorer in League One last season.

Boss Sami Hyypia said: “Sam was one of our key summer attacking targets and I'm delighted we have now completed the transfer.

"Alongside our existing forwards he will give us another attacking option and we hope he will continue to score goals for Brighton.

"He's a predator, instinctive in front of goal and his career goal record is excellent.

"He has played and scored goals at this level, and we are confident he can be a major threat for us going forward."

Great signing. Clearly SH prefers mobile strikers rather than target men. Full set of players now - playoffs definately achievable again.

Well done, kind of, to Andy Naylor, for getting one of the three transfers correct. In fairness, football and especially transfers is a murky business, with duplicitousness, gazumping, lying agents, and so on.

The squad has taken a nice size and shape of late, and so the gloom of many of us, some more than others, was premature. It's easy to say all signings should be made in May to July, but higher fees are often paid by those clubs and not all players are on the market at that time.

Good luck to Baldock. With Teixeira & co, let's hope he's given plenty of ammunition.

It must be said, impressive work in the last two weeks. At one point, I was one of many to be frustrated, but there's a definite consistency in the style of player which makes me wonder that £8m for Ulloa was an even better piece of business than it appeared.
Nice.

Let's hope this is a great signing but I can remember how excited we were when we signed CMS. He scored more goals in Division 1 than Baldock has done but time has shown he is only Division 1 striker. We've also just signed O'Grady, who looks a Division 1 striker as well. We've been chasing Baldock for a while, let's hope he really is the striker we've been waiting for.

A great signing in my view. If we need to change tactics and throw on a big man up front, it's going to have to be O'Grady. If we keep the ball on the floor we now have options all over the shop.

My only question would be whether Baldock and CMS can play in the same side?

Well, we've finally managed to sign one of our supposed "top three" summer transfer targets so well done to everyone involved.

Interesting that the club has stuck to its guns in pursuit of a mobile, smaller forward than looking for a big man to replace Leo. I'm assuming this will fit into the style of football Sami wants us to play. Guess we won't be pinging many aerial balls into the box then!

Anyway, after a slow start to the window, we've brought in a lot more players than I thought we would. Fingers crossed that the majority of them prove to be "quality" acquisitions. If early indications are anything to go by, Tex, Holla and Bennett certainly will.

I genuinely think that our squad is a strong as it was when Gus nearly took us up. Our front line looks the best in the division with the midfield not far behind. The defence looks good too but given the nature of our new set up, I think that we might concede a few more this year.

Good signing IMO, but where that leaves COG in the pecking order I don't know. With CMS and Colunga, and now Baldock - assuming Sammi does play 2 strikers at the same time, presumably it will be 2 from these 3. To be fair COG has had his chance and again failed to take it last night with a very lacklustre performance from where I was sitting.

Fenelon must now be given the chance to go out on loan to further expand his experience too. I must admit I've been surprised by the sudden rush in activity in the last 10 days and credit to the club for bringing in the players they have.

Only one small problem I foresee, is that with so many new faces how will Sammi ever work out what his best 11 is? Nice problem to have though!

I hope all those who were so critical think carefully in the future before being so quick to criticise because without doubt there will be times when things will not go well or the decisions made will seem odd to us fans but you have to have trust in those who have invested so much in our club and give them the benefit of the doubt.

Colunga looked too quality and with Baldock and CMS plus our midfield we actually do have a squad capable of automatic promotion for sure.

Good point Withdean-er re Andy Naylor. Naylor got a bit of stick on here about the three signings. Well one has happened - Baldock. A second was all agreed (Ward) only for Burnley to hijack the deal at the last moment. With the third, Clayton, ithere were strong rumours up North that we were in the running but other than that nothing concrete. None the less Naylor's info wasn't that far off the mark.
I have to say that with the Baldock signing (the Albion's 11th this Summer) Bloom, SH and Co have really produced the goods. I posted about 8 weeks ago that the spotlight was going to be on Burke and his team and it would be interesting to see if they could deliver the targets SH wanted and needed. Well I think that it is pretty obvious they have. BHA have acquired a number of quality players and have done so without paying excessive fees in doing so.
The real bonus is that a reasonable percentage of the money raised from selling Ulloa, Bridcutt, Buckley and Barnes should still be available for the next two Windows in January and next Summer. Strikes me as prudent financial management. Of course I am not allowing for any further acquisitions this window. I wouldn't be entirely surprised if we recruited a winger (to replace Buckley) or bring in another defender - any news about Lenihan that reportedly we are competing against Hull for ?
Was warm Sussex welcome to Sam Baldock.
Upwards and onwards with TB, SH and DB.

If the 1 Million price is correct, would be another great signing, albeit that he hasn't scored yet this season. To be honest after the first couple of games of the season, I didn't really know what our style was but the addition of a few quality players and the recent performances has shown what Sami is looking to achieve. Suspect we wont score too many headed goals this season (a bit like the time before Ulloa) and suspect we might concede a few from corners etc but really pleased we are bringing the beautiful game back to the Amex after the dreariness of last season.

Personally would have preferred Carlton Cole at the same price - proven at championship and premiership level and has the power and height. Baldock has scored the vast majority of his goals in league 1, apart from the 10 at Bristol when they were relegated, and 4 or so at West Ham. Not saying I'm not pleased, but would have preferred a proven striker at this level and the next level upwards.

Good signing IMO, but where that leaves COG in the pecking order I don't know. With CMS and Colunga, and now Baldock - assuming Sammi does play 2 strikers at the same time, presumably it will be 2 from these 3. To be fair COG has had his chance and again failed to take it last night with a very lacklustre performance from where I was sitting.

Fenelon must now be given the chance to go out on loan to further expand his experience too. I must admit I've been surprised by the sudden rush in activity in the last 10 days and credit to the club for bringing in the players they have.

Only one small problem I foresee, is that with so many new faces how will Sammi ever work out what his best 11 is? Nice problem to have though!
His best 11 will always be based on the opponents he is up against. His problem will be choosing the right squad for each game with so many quality players now.

This is undoubtedly good news and the signings of the last week or so have filled us all with hope for the season, BUT I think there's a danger of getting carried away. Just as a couple of weeks ago there was talk of a relegation fight, we now have people talking about automatic promotion. I think we need to remember there are some very strong squads in this league - Forest, Watford, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Norwich, Derby, Boro - even Sheff Weds, are unbeaten and had a great result last night. So a bit of perspective required. We are a lot better off than we were only two weeks ago, but I would say we'll do well to make the play-offs. I do think, though, that we'll see a lot better games this year than last, and if we win more and draw less, then we could challenge. I'm excited again, couldn't say that 2 weeks ago!

Cole is 31 years of age, Baldock is 25, for me Baldock is the better option considering we were looking for a striker. Had we been looking for a defender one aged 31 would not have been a problem for me, but up front and in midfield, I prefer a younger player.

Anyway, this looks like an interesting scenario, if you ask me. We have a very healthy supply of quick ground playing strikers and attacking midfielders. Has Sami seen something that we haven't? Has he recognised that all other teams in the league rely on big tall heavyweight defenders (see Bolton last week) to counteract all the big strikers who like the aerial stuff. We now have a team of front men who will love those low balls into the box which the big guys often find more difficult to handle. Our front men are also good with the ball at their feet and might be able to make life hard for the big boys that way. I don't know - it's just a theory and you can all shoot me down in flames if you like. It was just a thought.......

The problem is what wages would Cole have demanded? Championship wages average is £8k a week, and the Albion have worked their way out of a mess where our wage bill was too high. Baldock's demands / wishes on money would be at a fraction of PL-pampered Cole's.

And we get a younger, hungrier player.

Agreed, Baldock is the more progressive and skilled player and am sure he will score goals if we are to continue playing in the style shown in the last few matches. Cole doesn't really have the requisite skill and movement in this set-up.

I apologized on another thread ,but not as well as you have , so I would reiterate Tony`s more comprehensive apology and sincerely aim it at all 3Bs ,Tony Bloom , David Burke , Paul Barber .
I hope it is realised , the love of The Albion is as much behind good words as bad , and not an individual as such ,but the figure perceived as the problem /solution . Thanks to you we now have a season to look forward to , Thankyou . UTA

Personally would have preferred Carlton Cole at the same price - proven at championship and premiership level and has the power and height. Baldock has scored the vast majority of his goals in league 1, apart from the 10 at Bristol when they were relegated, and 4 or so at West Ham. Not saying I'm not pleased, but would have preferred a proven striker at this level and the next level upwards.
Cole is 31 years of age, Baldock is 25, for me Baldock is the better option considering we were looking for a striker. Had we been looking for a defender one aged 31 would not have been a problem for me, but up front and in midfield, I prefer a younger player.
Also why do we need a big target man?
I can understand to a point that having a big man gives you the option of lumping high balls into the area.
But that usually means you have lost the battle on the ground.
Let's keep the football on the deck and put balls through for the likes of Baldock, CMS & Colunga to run onto.
Don't get me wrong, I liked Ulloa, but Wardy excited me more.

Your opinion over Burke has not been valid what's so ever, just because he didn't or couldn't get players in quick enough for people like you does not mean he was not doing his job, and deserve all the crap you all gave him, anyway move on!!

So what. burke finally signs a player after 12 (twelve) failed bids for baldock.

Bristol only ley him go cos he was in the final year of his contract.

Hardly the work of a master negotiator, Bristol were the winners in this little charade.

Fact is that you look for a fight , again typical Leeds , you claim to be Albion ,but all you have done for 3 weeks is attack an Albion man who lives and dies for the club , I gave you an out in an earlier post , but you chose to have a go .

(Tongue firmly in cheek) technically speaking more people were slating David Burke than defending him, so who in fact were the sheep? ;-)

Seriously though, it matters not who had faith and who didn't - the only measure on here is whether or not you're a genuine fan of the Albion, and I think most of those on this website (obvious trolls and wums excepted) are.

"Bet that hurt writing that " , that is the difference between me and you , it didn`t hurt at all , football is fluid , 12 days ago we were 8 players short ,and a lot on here were both worried and angry with good reason ,and naturally blaming those responsible , now 12 days on we only need a CB to be a complete squad ,and now those same people are not only relieved ,they as myself are grateful .

Being me is easy , I say what I think at the time given the evidence at the time ,it`s calling a spade a spade ( non racial ,as apposed to calling a shovel a spade ) if I am wrong I have absolutely no problem in saying so ,as I have done before , but I cant stand people who don't have an original opinion or thought ,but stand tall and shout their claims after the fact ,anyone can stand in the background saying nothing worthwhile ,and then come out with the victors and claim I SAID THAT !.

Because I don't dilly dally around trying not to tread on so and so`s toes in case I might either offend him or look silly . This site has some great lads on it ,I certainly don't claim to be one ,but that's my point ,everyone tiptoes around the truth in fear of a negative response . There are plenty on here I trust ,but RINGTONE I trust more than the rest , I don't have to agree with him ,and he couldn`t give a monkey`s anyway ,that's what makes him better than tw@ts like lomer ,even after an apology the guy wants to argue !.

But the main reason "It takes balls to be me " is because ,it should be respected when a man admits he`s wrong ,but sadly not on here ,unyet I am still big enough to speak my mind .

Hey Jeff - I am not a Burke lover, but I do love my team and want the best for them. I was never a Mellor or Gordon Smith fan either, yet they didn't do too badly - we all have our opinions and that's OK in my book :)

Let's see where we are in the table at Christmas - and I'm hoping that we are flying high.

Good week for BHA!!!
