Albion face possible reunion with former boss

The Argus: Former Albion boss Micky Adams Former Albion boss Micky Adams

Albion face a possible FA Cup reunion with former two-time manager Micky Adams and two of his players.

The Seagulls have been drawn away to Adams’ League One side Port Vale or League Two Plymouth Argyle in the fourth round on January 25 or 26.

The teams drew 2-2 at Vale Park yesterday after Adams’ side squandered a 2-0 lead and now face a replay in Devon next week.

Adams was in charge of Albion from April 1999 to October 2001. He guided them to the League Two title at Withdean and signed Bobby Zamora before leaving for Leicester, with the Seagulls in promotion contention again in League One.

Adams returned in May 2008 in place of Dean Wilkins but only lasted nine months.

Two of Vale’s midfielders, Hastings-born Doug Loft and Chris Birchall, played for Albion under him. Loft set up the second goal for Tom Pope yesterday, while Birchall was on the bench. The trip to Vale will be the second of four successive away games for the Seagulls. They visit Derby on January 18, Burnley on the Tuesday after the FA Cup tie and Watford on February 2.

We will know more between 9 and 10 this morning. My main concerns are the gems we have coming through and to be hpnest we need to keep hold of March, Ince and JFC before we are potentially playing one of the big boys where we could see our players get noticed a lot more. Don't see or hear of many scouts at our games and thats how I like it. It would be good for us to know how long the lads contracts are now to stop any worry. Not concerned if ee lose Bridders todat but please not for peanuts. This is all about Gus and Liams agent now angling for a good deal; be a good deal to have them both in one place.

Yes, haven't you heard? We're playing either Port Vale or Plymouth in the FA Cup..
I'm sorry if it's all a bit confusing for you, but the Argus couldn't be any more specific because the two of them drew yesterday.........

MG, it's a small point but to be fair to the Argus, the immediate reaction to the cup draw was obviously going to be exclusively on-line yesterday as they didn't have a newspaper to put it into. Today's story on here will, I'm sure, be a simple replication of the first newspaper piece they've had chance to write. I'd suggest its on here as this morning's first piece because there is nothing else of note that overtakes it.... Yet.
We've all moaned about meaningless transfer gossip that leads nowhere, on this occasion, I think they should be cut a little slack.

With the probability of Bridders going, Pretty sure we will extend R. Is contract. Why go into the market for a player we've already got?.Again same applies for J.C & S M. We are very lucky to have 3 great players in prospect home grown. I believe with the new academy & club set up we've a lot to look forward too.

A comment to be shot down in flames, but i'm not convinced now that we'll let Bridders go..
I think we could be overestimating his desire to leave for a club that may bring him straight back to where he started and we shouldn't forget he's also a London boy. Of course he may be of interest to other, more 'stable' clubs, but perhaps, just perhaps, he'll stay until the end of the season?
I know there's a consideration relating to contract, but its not beyond the realms that he signs a new 18 month deal that has a clause hidden away from public view saying he can go in the summer. That way, he joins a club that's ready for a fresh start in August so isn't thrown into an immediate game of catch-up. What's more, we still get a fee.
Furthermore, if he stays and we DO go up, the incentive to move at all, isn't quite as strong.. ??
Just a thought.

The Vale only managed a draw at home so I fancy Plymouth to do Vale 1-0. I thought we would have heard something re Bridders; still quite a bit of the month to go but agree with some posters that he will not go to a club coming back down but I'm afraid of his agents relationships. Lets hope he stays; I hope we show the same desire as we did against Reading at home as long as we don't forget how to play at home with all the away fixtures coming up. Turn over Bgham and I will be happy.

Re-Bridcutt.
Under normal circumstances I would not expect to hear how much we got from this sale, 'undisclosed fee,' being the usual statement, but this time I think the club will let it be known. Not one single fan wants Bridders to go, we may accept it but we don't want it. The only thing that softens the pain of losing the lad will be how much we got for him, I think the club will tell us so as to cushion the disappointment of him going. A little over three million is my guess, plus a sell on percentage clause. There might even be a, 'X,' number of international appearances clause too.

I was initially worried about Bridders going especially now I have seen ince perform; Andrews had a great game in the cdm position on Saturday also. I live quite near to him. Can't see any for sale signs so hoping he stays at least the season. After seeing Solly, Chicksen, Ince and JFC step up then I have no concerns and I would go as far to see that 2 out of the 4 will be PL standard with the other 2 not far behind if they work hard. Game time is key for the youngsters.

Fair points, but I think his mind has been elsewhere for a few weeks now, hasn't been the near immaculate performer we have come to rely upon. An old cliche, but a football career can be over in a heart beat, and the possibility of doubling his wages and at least half a season of Prem football will be to good to ignore. As I said before he looked to be saying his goodbyes after the Bournemouth game.

Are you suggesting that Brighton will have some say in who Bridcutt might join in two transfers time, that's crazy. If Sunderland buy him we are done, apart from possible sell on monetary clauses, who he might join if released by Sunderland will be the player's and Sunderland's choice, how the heck could we have anything to do with that decision.

Personal comments aside, it makes sense to me that Bridcutt and the Sunderland management (not Brighton) will want to discuss his their future circumstances; he presumably will wish to remain a premiership player and they may find difficulty paying his salary if they become a Championship side next season.

Try not to be confrontational. You make some good points, but you are not the only supporter who can make a contribution.

I think that Ince will prove to be even better that LB. Remember that Ince played several games without LB and was excellent. As long as we get a good fee for LB I'm not too worried about him leaving.

Yep a good fee is essential but simply because he is such a good player and not because we will have to spend to replace him. I agree with you, Ince does seem to have great potential but I do wonder whether or not he needs that Bridders type along side him, I guess Andrews will fill that role for the most part.

I have to go now, I have a project starting today, later bro, you too BrightonUp.

Some good points made by Andy Naylor which I agree with,sell Bridcutt and Buckley and purchase a new striker and Conway,with the return of CMS in Feb should see us through into playoffs. Will also give more chance to SM,JFC to be involved now.
I just hope any fees received are used for budget purposes and not swallowed into the great crevice that is FFP.

Claude the reason for some of my comments being a tad long is, I say what I say and explain what I mean, that way there isn't any room for confusion, clarity works for me.
Agree on two points regarding the sale of Bridcutt. Obviously we need to ensure we get the biggest fee possible and secondly central midfield is curently the strongest area of the squad with Ince, Crofts, Agdestein, Andrews, JFC, all competing for places along with Bridcutt - if Albion can reinvest some of the money in areas where we are short that would be a good thing. However I feel it is too early to go overboard about Ince's present standing and long term potential. The guy has played about a dozen games yet already there are plenty on here who seem to think he is better than Bridcutt who has been outstanding for the best part of four years and has been Player of the Season for the last two. I do love what Ince has done since he got in the team but obviously Oscar still has some concerns about some parts of his game as continues to be left on the bench from time to time. Also, as things stand he could leave at the end of the season which in terms of seeing a young player develop at the club would be a huge disappointment.

Re-Bridcutt.
Under normal circumstances I would not expect to hear how much we got from this sale, 'undisclosed fee,' being the usual statement, but this time I think the club will let it be known. Not one single fan wants Bridders to go, we may accept it but we don't want it. The only thing that softens the pain of losing the lad will be how much we got for him, I think the club will tell us so as to cushion the disappointment of him going. A little over three million is my guess, plus a sell on percentage clause. There might even be a, 'X,' number of international appearances clause too.
I was initially worried about Bridders going especially now I have seen ince perform; Andrews had a great game in the cdm position on Saturday also. I live quite near to him. Can't see any for sale signs so hoping he stays at least the season. After seeing Solly, Chicksen, Ince and JFC step up then I have no concerns and I would go as far to see that 2 out of the 4 will be PL standard with the other 2 not far behind if they work hard. Game time is key for the youngsters.
I believe Andrews is on loan from Bolton until the end of the season.

The idea that Ince is a replacement for bridcutt is to miss his potential. He has tremendous scope to being an attacking central midfielder going on marauding runs. To play him just as a defensive midfielder is a waste. Oscar I believe understands this, as he plays them in the sane side and we are unbeaten to date when they played in the same side. Split that partnership up at our peril.

The sale of Bridcutt does seem to have gone on a little long.
It may simply be that negotiations are under way to allow Bridcutt to leave for another premiership side if Sunderland are relegated....
Are you suggesting that Brighton will have some say in who Bridcutt might join in two transfers time, that's crazy. If Sunderland buy him we are done, apart from possible sell on monetary clauses, who he might join if released by Sunderland will be the player's and Sunderland's choice, how the heck could we have anything to do with that decision. Think about it.
Personal comments aside, it makes sense to me that Bridcutt and the Sunderland management (not Brighton) will want to discuss his their future circumstances; he presumably will wish to remain a premiership player and they may find difficulty paying his salary if they become a Championship side next season.

Try not to be confrontational. You make some good points, but you are not the only supporter who can make a contribution.
Well done BrightonUp, I understood the point you were making even if Vegas didn't and was quite disparaging despite his lack of understanding of your post.....
only, 'quite,' wow I thought I had gone further than that. I guess I must learn to understand what people, 'mean,' by their offerings rather than just reading them and taking them for what I read, my error, must try harder.
I hope that you will not just try harder generally, but adjust your approach specifically - and be a little more tactful - and gracious - to other supporters. For instance, is this a 'general' or 'specific' apology? Are you willing and able to be clear on that?
You really are crazy aren't you, you are the only person that I ever write in what might be considered an, ungracious tone, but that's because I think you are a joke. 32 comments from Ringtone followed by 32 from you telling us all to ignore his 32 posts, what you mean like you just did with your 32 instructional postings. Yeah the trolls get a little bit of flak from me every now and the, when but they deserve it, but I will always reply to a fairly put question no matter who it is from, even a berk like you.

If you are not able to apologise or differentiate between fellow supporter and troll...then keep please keep working at being courteous and less arrogant, read other posts carefully.... and recognise that this site is not your exclusive domain.
