Brezovan facing dilemma

The Argus: Peter Brezovan in action against Leicester Peter Brezovan in action against Leicester

PETER Brezovan wants to save his Albion career – unless another Championship club tempts him away.

The Slovakian goalkeeper, fighting for a new deal, does not want to drop down a division despite his inactivity with the Seagulls.

Brezovan, pictured right, made his first appearance for 13 months in Saturday’s 3-1 win at home to deposed leaders Leicester after Tomasz Kuszczak pulled out in the warm-up with a stomach muscle strain.

Brezovan, Kuszczak and injured second choice Casper Ankergren are all out of contract next summer.

Brezovan, now in his fifth season at Albion, told The Argus: “It’s hard because Brighton is a beautiful place and I love the people around here. It’s not easy to go.

“If there was an offer from the same level I would probably try it. Going to a lower division, getting injured and then to be there on the bench is risky.”

Brezovan, 34 today, was catapulted from third choice a week ago to No.1 after Kuszczak’s understudy Ankergren suffered a wrist injury which will sideline him for weeks in training before last Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat by Barnsley at The Amex. Brezovan said: “That’s football. Things can happen quickly and it’s beautiful. It shows how everyone is important. When you don’t play for a long time, even in training, you start to think it’s hard to motivate yourself.

“That’s why you need good lads around you. I love the guys here. They always help you to be motivated. When you play and your contract is running out you need to find that motivation.”

Brezovan could remain in goal for Saturday’s trip to Middlesbrough, with Kuszczak facing a scan. Adam El-Abd is also likely to deputise again in the centre of defence for captain Gordon Greer, who was forced off early on by a calf injury.

Winger Will Buckley missed the Leicester victory with an ankle injury sustained on his comeback from hamstring trouble as a second half substitute against Barnsley.

Good keeper who has made a couple of high profile errors. I hope we can keep him but understand that he needs some playing time somewhere!

I like Peter. Proper professional. It is difficult for goalkeepers when they are the number two at a club. He had a good game against Leicester but I get the sense that Brighton fans are always expecting a howler when he plays. A goalkeeper can sense that and it will affect his confidence. Perhaps it is time to move on.

He was exemplary on Saturday against Leicester and a very capable deputy to TK. Likewise, I hope we're able to retain his services as, at last, it seems we have no concerns about our goalkeeping capabilities with these two in the squad.

Having Brez and Ank in the squad is a luxury for me, and will stifle the development of Walker who potentially is the future. TK is so far ahead as our no 1, anyone else is only going to pick up the scraps unless he is injured like Saturday. Brighton should decide which of Bez or Ank is the no 2 and let the other one go. Both have been great servants, but neither are really part of a PL future in my opinion.

We've made some poor signings in recent years, this is another one. We should go for Edwin van der sar, he still plays a bit, although his kicking isnt that good these days, he has a wealth of experience and I have heard he's interested in being player manager when Oscar goes. With Bloom wanting to do things on the cheap all the time, this is the way forward. We are proof that you can achieve mid table championship level on a shoestring budget, we can all feel justly proud of that.

Saturday showed exactly why you need three keepers. Would you have fancied playing against Leicester with a rookie in goal? No, me neither.

Edwin van der Sar? The club would have to buy him a Zimmer frame! I'll bet his kicking isn't that good these days, he would have to kick the Zimmer frame out of the way first! He was a GREAT goalie but not now please!

Brez put in a great shift on Saturday: some top class saves, faultless kicking and good command of the penalty area. He was beaten just the once, and then it was by a totally unmarked player a few yards out.

On Saturday's performance, he deserves his place in the squad. I don't believe his tip over the bar, and his instinctive save low down to the right - both in the second half, in front of the Leicester fans - would have been matched by Ankergren.

I have to admit I was full of trepidation when I saw Peter in the team.
I WAS WRONG. He played a blinder and took his chance brilliantly.
He was unrecognisable from the player we signed from Swindon.
He was confidant and showed great agility in getting down to some tricky shots. To come in at such short notice and play so well was a triumph.
He is at his prime for a keeper and for my money should give Tomasz something to think about.UTA.

Brez is a good keeper but sometimes loses confidence in himself, it isn't that he makes the odd howler, it's that once he has made one his confidence is shot for the rest of the game. Ankergren is not as good a keeper in my opinion but backs himself more readily than Brez does and doesn't let one mistake lead to another.
Brez is as able as Kuszak, just needs to believe in himself.

The question of sorting out a new deal for TK, if he wants one, is a no brainer, promotion or not he is very likely to remain as our number one shot stopper. I guess promotion might see a new first choice keeper come in, not sure why tho, but even if he did, we would still need TK.

Sorting out new deals for Brez or Ankergren has to wait until we know how our season will end.
If we get promoted one of them could be a third choice, I doubt either would be a second choice. Choosing which of the two to keep would probably be decided by if either of them attracts an offer, if one goes the other gets offered a contract.
If we don't see either Brez or Ankergren attract an offer, and we miss out on promotion, then give the both a new deal, why not.

"There are things going on behind the scenes in terms of the transfer window - that hasn't changed - and I'm confident they will happen.

A quote for our ex manager....

I have to say that I'm fearful about losing a few of our gems in January. If anyone is in a position to tap up our talent and know about buyout clauses within their contracts then it will be Mr Poyet.
I'm not sure the timing of Liam's thread last week about wanting to play in the premiership was a coincidence.

Here's hoping that Liam himself has enough sense to see that Sunderland will be a championship club next season and that our management team will not at any cost deal with a man that has been so very disrespectful to our great club.

I think if Brez leaves, he would be snapped up quick. Even at 34 years old he still demonstrates the sharpness of someone 10 years younger! He may have to accept that a top League One club may be his only option, especially if he wants first team football, but I reckon if he does leave, a Championship club would gain from his services as a great backup keeper

Yep the Bridcutt comment did have a hint of shop window advertising, and I guess the player would say that he has to look out for himself first and foremost.
It's always important to keep your key players, and I hope that the lad stays but no one is irreplaceable, some might say that we already have his replacement.
Poyet has to be careful when it comes to bringing in new players, he has a relegation fight to win and any new signing must help in that fight. If the board and fans go along with Poyet's decision to look to the Championship division to find players to stop prem clubs beating Sunderland, that agreement will only last if the right results come.
Sunderland will find it hard to attract established prem quality players, why get into a fight that you don't have to, but it takes prem quality to beat prem quality. Bridders and Ulloa, are they prem quality, who knows, but it will cost Sunderland around 10 million to find out, and if they are not Poyet will be blamed. Would Poyet be prepared to stake his job on two champ div players, he needs to think hard and long on that one, especially as both have sustained long term injuries this season.

I think when push comes to shove Poyet will look elsewhere, I can't see him making the gamble. Chances are he will do a, 'Arry,' offer big money to a few prem standard players and hope that works out for him, something on the lines of what QPR tried last year. They might still get relegated, QPR did, but at least Poyet would not get blamed for not buying proven quality, just as Arry wasn't.

I still think that Bridcutt could go but not to Sunderland, maybe one of the middle order clubs will see him as worth a try.

I thought Brezovan did really well all things considered, but I don't think either he or Ankergren are necessarily the right number 2's. If we need to keep one as back up to TK then thats a difficult choice. We do need to get TK signed up though in my opinion.

I'm quite happy to keep Brez. I thought he had a fine game on Saturday and is due credit for that. We're fortunate to have someone like him as Kuz's understudy. He's tall, commanding when he wants to be and gets down well to shots. I feel he would even get better with a run in the team as this would give him confidence, but that's probably unlikely all the time Kuz is fit.
I can understand his desire to play regularly as he could well achieve that anywhere else other than Brighton. Hadn't realised he was 34 though, so I guess time is pressing for him.
Nice guy, good pro and I'd be sorry to lose him.

Who knows if Bridcutts sale has already been agreed to in principle a short while ago. However though, the team that is rooted to the bottom on Christmas day always gets relegated.

Sunderland are 6 points behind with 3 games to go before Christmas so they may not be in as an attractive position to Bridcutt (or Ulloa for that matter) since the 3 straight defeats as they were when they beat Man City.

We have also shown recent interst in Brazilian midfielder Renan Bressan but I'm sure this would depend on funds raised from Bridcutt IF he does go.

I have to say that I'm fearful about losing a few of our gems in January. If anyone is in a position to tap up our talent and know about buyout clauses within their contracts then it will be Mr Poyet.

I will put my hands up to that one, this was exactly what I thought after Barnsley. He followed up with probably having the best game he has ever played for us.

Oscar played him a bit differently, and Barnes often dropped back to cover allowing him to play further forward and more central, which was what happened on his second goal assist. Also having Bridcutt and Ince playing together gave him more freedom.

Credit to Lopez and Oscar and for playing him to his strengths.

He was awful on Tuesday but brilliant on Saturday.

I was mighty impressed with Brezs' performance on Saturday - testament to the way he has obviously kept himself in good shape both physically and mentally. It must be draining to have not had a sniff of first team action for so long. Casper has also been very patient and is clearly a model professional. However, if I had to choose a deputy for Kuz, then it would be Brez. On that basis, I'd like to see him get a deal as soon as possible.

Money making idea for the club.

With today's technology it would be very easy to create a, 'fan with player,' photo, pick your favorite player, or players, and have your photo taken, technology does the rest. I would guess that there would be a good demand for this service, at a ten quid per 8 x 4 photo, including frame, this would make a nice souvenir. Pay extra for larger size. A simple photo shop computer program is all that is needed. Fans could build photo collections as players come and go from the club, I bet the kids would love it.

All this speculation about Bridders and Ulloa is unsettling but has anyone considered that the players themselves may not wish to play under Poyet again. We have already seen evidence in the Leicester game that Bridders is getting forward more which he may like whereas under Poyet it was rare he crossed the halfway line.

Good idea Vegas, although I'm not sure if there will be the demand for such a product at Brighton. We did try it at Selhurst a while back but it ended up a bit like a Gurning competition. Too many complaints accusing the club of photo shopping the fans. The Chairman didn't have the heart to tell them......

Agree, he would never venture into the last quarter and he has only just had his first shot on goal since he has been in the Championship.

Would not be a good career move teaming up with Poyet again, especially with relegation a high probability.

The interesting thing is that he has the same agent as Poyet.

Don't think Ulloa will have much of a tie with Poyet, Bridcutt I think will be different, I've heard he was very close to Poyet and owes much of his development as a player to him. Gut feeling says he will swap the blue and white for red and white come January. Really hope I'm wrong, after Saturdays taster of the Ince/Bridcutt show, that pairing potentially could go a long way to achieving our Premiership goal.

One of the reasons for Bridders getting forward was that Ince was there to cover.
Playing both together will allow both to use all their talents.
Which gives us more options when attacking and defending

I think Sunderland will find it hard to purchase any player on a two or three year contract if they are still at the bottom at the turn of the year. Even Bridcutt will think twice, he doesn't owe Gus putting his career on the line.

Great players don't sign for bottom clubs and the best chance Poyet will have getting getting players in will be the end of season loan market.

Interesting comments about Bridcutt and Ulloa.
Bridcut may be 'close' to our former manager as Alfie T has suggested, but whether that converts to a move to Sunderland is another matter. Bridcutt would surely be hoping that a middling Premiership club, unlikely to be embroiled in a relegation scrap, would come in for him, such as an Aston Villa. The sight of Tarrico alongside our former manager in the technical area, instead of his usual slumped chair mode, speaks volumes as to how desperate things could get if results don't turn favourably shortly. Bridcutt might be better advised to wait awhile, and take the ride with he Albion. It looks to me that he may be on the brink of an exciting spell pushed futher up, thanks to the terrific impact that Ince has made.
Ulloa? Great acquisition by our former manager for this division and I hope we can keep him. For me, a lack of pace may deter bids from the premiership. He has to dislodge Barnes yet. Never thought I'd ever find myself expressing that sentiment!

Good post, and you may well be right, I honestly think Bridders wants to get to the Premiership with the Albion, but if say Southampton/Swansea/
Cardiff come knocking it will be hard to convince him to stay with only a slim chance of Premiership football next season.

Still wouldn't rule out him joining Poyet, depends if his acrimonious departure has changed Liam's viewpoint.

To be fair that's not a bad idea. Mixing with a Premiership squad may motivate Peter Brezovan and take him up to the next level, instead of having to drop down a league to achieve career satisfaction. Speroni is prone to the odd howler or three it's true. It would be good to have some competition for him.

It's not just about career and status and whether Bridders and Ulloa are close to Gus. Money is a huge factor here. Even if Sunderland get relegated, they will probably be able to offer someone like Bridders double the money he is on now, what with parachute payments etc.

It's a short career, and will Bridders really care if he is back in the Championship on double the money? I still don't think he will go in January, and especially to Sunderland. Can't see the club giving Poyet what he wants after the way it all ended?

Perhaps it is time to move on.
Talking of a number two, Pepperoni serves up a few howlers himself. Perhaps the Palarce might put in an offer?
To be fair that's not a bad idea. Mixing with a Premiership squad may motivate Peter Brezovan and take him up to the next level, instead of having to drop down a league to achieve career satisfaction. Speroni is prone to the odd howler or three it's true. It would be good to have some competition for him.
You are getting a bit boring now.

Less is more.
A bit like my footballing philosophy I guess.

We have three keepers and all the time we are in the Champ Div these three will serve us well, so the first order of business should be to get TK resigned, once that is done, wait till the end of the season and make what ever decisions need to be made at that time.
It's utter nonsense to say that Brez is better than Ankergren, or visa versa, neither of them get to start unless we have a problem and none of us have any clue as to how each of them is performing in training. Brez did well on Saturday, will he be as good next week, who knows, will he be needed next week, who knows. All this comparing is crap.

Brezovan is clearly better than Ankergren - any shot outside the box seems to cause Casper problems

Barnes taking penalties? Always a worry - another bad one but he got away with it on Saturday thank fully

Ulloa to Sunderland? Cold and miserable ... not playing - not treasured by the fans. coming back down anyway .... no one has said Leois dumb so am sure he'll be with us a while longer and with Oscar - clearly to be our best manager since Mullery, if not ever - not just in terms of results but tactician, bringing out player potential and man management - time will tell

UTA!!

Brezovan has proven his worth and why he is worth keeping, injuries happen and in this case both 1st and 2nd choice were not available. The result on staurday could have been very different with a rookie between the posts. Has been a good servant for the club and worth keeping if he wants to stay 3rd choice for at least 1 more season after this.; and with that season being in the premier league he may get the chance to at least play a part and share in the glory that awaits us. Although he probably wont be with us when we play our first game in Europe the season after next.

I was mighty impressed with Brezs' performance on Saturday - testament to the way he has obviously kept himself in good shape both physically and mentally. It must be draining to have not had a sniff of first team action for so long. Casper has also been very patient and is clearly a model professional. However, if I had to choose a deputy for Kuz, then it would be Brez. On that basis, I'd like to see him get a deal as soon as possible.
I thought that he put in a superb display - his positioning was spot on and he always seemed to be in touch with the play. Hope he stays

Regarding Bridcutt I can't see our former leader coming in for the player. I know that the majority of the negotiations are done by the lawyers and club officials, but would Gus at any stage really fancy sitting in the same room as Tony and Barber? Would he really want to do them the favour of pushing up Bridcutt's value by getting involved in any bidding war with other club's. It wouldn't be a case of stealing a player away on the cheap from a club unwilling to sell because it does look like he's been put in the shop window.

BTW if I'm wrong Sunderland would be a good move because I think Gus will keep them up
