Calderon keen to extend Albion career

The Argus: Inigo Calderon (left) Inigo Calderon (left)

Inigo Calderon wants to stretch his stay with Albion.

The long-serving right-back is among 11 members of the first team squad out of contract at the end of the season.

Calderon is keen to extend his career with the Seagulls, despite becoming second choice to fellow Spaniard Bruno in the last two seasons.

The 32-year-old, who will start the next two games at Barnsley tomorrow and Leicester on Tuesday with Bruno banned, said: "I am really proud to have been here for four and a half years and I would love to be here longer.

"I don't know what is going to happen, because in football you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow.

I will just try to train today perfect, try to get ready for tomorrow and get the three points and then we'll see what happens."

An excellent servant and example to all other players of how to conduct yourself on & off the pitch. I think on recent Bruno form he should have been in the first 11 instead.. anyway I for one hope he gets another couple of years and then moves onto the back-room staff, a credit to your profession Inigo.

I hope he has a couple of really solid games and keeps the spot to the end of the season.
Would love for him to continue here, has an excellent attitude and that goes a long way but it might not be enough.

I have always enjoyed watching Ini play ,he has the same passion in his eye`s for The Albion as we do ,that`s why you know he will play out of his skin in the next two games ,and possibly further ?.
Having Ini in the squad is great cover for several positions ,but it is anyone`s guess if the lovable Spaniard will be here next season ? ,unfortunately i dont think he would make the cut ,if we got promoted , UTA

He's worth keeping just to show the youngsters how to train, look after yourself & show what being a pro is all about.
Because he has looked after himself so well there seems no diminishing of his ability & I'm confident he can maintain his performance levels for another couple of seasons, so well worth a new deal.

Brian, I understand the desire to have PL Seagulls but without sentiment, passion, loyalty(and I know this last counts for nothing most of the time but IC isn;t the same) etc etc there would be no fans and no club, just BHA Football PLC - and noone wants that. So there has to be room for it but it has to be tempered with professionalism and skill. If we did get to the Prem you will have a point based on skills and abilities with some you name (maybe all) but we have to get there first.

Calde is a lovely bloke. You are totally correct on that though.

If I go and ask my bank for a loan and tell them they should agree because I'm a nice chap and I always try to do the right thing I will quickly be shown the door. They will flick a switch on a computer which will tell them whether I am creditworthy or not. Likewise football fans have only one real point of reference - the league table. Regardless of whether the manager is a man of integrity and principle or not - if the team is not where the fans think it should be they will call for his head. Claude - you should know this as well as anyone - you've been after Oscar's head all season. Of course this approach can be derided as 'intellectually stunted' but is modern reality - and indeed has probably always been the case.
Like someone said - 'if you want loyalty - get a dog'.

No room for sentiment in football, maybe not when just a single point can mean so much but, when thinking of THE CLUB, the day to day workings and each employee giving of their best be they, paper pushers, suits or established players, there has to be room for a little sentiment.

Calde has built a personal connection between himself and the the club as a whole, he is part of the family that is Brighton And Hove Albion, and that family is about more than just 90 minutes on the park. From just a pure football perspective, Calde is worth a new one year contract, he is a cover player and has accepted that role, and no matter who plays at right back next season we will need cover.
Looking at the bigger picture, the club is growing in every sense of the word. The stadium is being recognized as an international venue, we are just the second club in English history that has been able to sell the naming rights to it's new facility, Man United being the other and, the regular crowd numbers are bigger than some prem level clubs. With the growth of the club on all all levels, including the out reach community programs, more people will be needed and I see no reason why Calderon shouldn't be one of those people when he final days of his playing career are over.

Would a decison to find a future role for Calde sometime down the road be born out of sentiment, possibly, but if Calde wasn't the servant to the club and the community that he is, we wouldn't even be talking about it.

I love the idea of a player earning a new contract by deliberately underperforming. What a strange concept.

Calde is a legend and will, eventually, have his banner up outside the west stand. If he ends his playing career with us then I can see him staying in some capacity, either as coach (assuming he gets his badges) or a goodwill ambassador, something else he seems naturally suited for.

Top man and decent player who has made Brighton his home.

Arnie you must realise that Brighton FC is full of players that are only interested in their next pay packet. Why would you think it a crazy idea to suggest that some are throwing matches, conspiring to rig the betting markets by doing less than their best to ensure a losing result and deliberately cheating the fans, isn't that what happens as all clubs at some point.

You only have to look at our defensive record to now what is going on, all those clean sheets that suddenly looked a tad dirty, we were getting much to close to a play off place, somthing had to be done.
Greer, Stephens and Rodriguez upset the apple cart when they all scored to earn us a valuable point, Ulloa did his part, he ensured that he didn't get a goal, but I guess the others were not thinking right.

It's too obvious when looking at Orlandi and Buckley, both of them are faking injuries so as to ensure that the squad is weakened, just ask Hoskins, he is in on it, he knows. CMS nearly mucked everythig up, he was making himself available way too early, so a quick ankle injury followed by a muscle strain got him back in lock step with the others in on the conspiracy.

I have written all of the above to help Bosch out, he has an idea but so often fails to express himself properly.

Top man and decent player who has made Brighton his home.[/p][/quote]Arnie you must realise that Brighton FC is full of players that are only interested in their next pay packet. Why would you think it a crazy idea to suggest that some are throwing matches, conspiring to rig the betting markets by doing less than their best to ensure a losing result and deliberately cheating the fans, isn't that what happens as all clubs at some point. You only have to look at our defensive record to now what is going on, all those clean sheets that suddenly looked a tad dirty, we were getting much to close to a play off place, somthing had to be done. Greer, Stephens and Rodriguez upset the apple cart when they all scored to earn us a valuable point, Ulloa did his part, he ensured that he didn't get a goal, but I guess the others were not thinking right. It's too obvious when looking at Orlandi and Buckley, both of them are faking injuries so as to ensure that the squad is weakened, just ask Hoskins, he is in on it, he knows. CMS nearly mucked everythig up, he was making himself available way too early, so a quick ankle injury followed by a muscle strain got him back in lock step with the others in on the conspiracy. I have written all of the above to help Bosch out, he has an idea but so often fails to express himself properly. VegasSeagull

No room for sentiment in football, maybe not when just a single point can mean so much but, when thinking of THE CLUB, the day to day workings and each employee giving of their best be they, paper pushers, suits or established players, there has to be room for a little sentiment.

Calde has built a personal connection between himself and the the club as a whole, he is part of the family that is Brighton And Hove Albion, and that family is about more than just 90 minutes on the park. From just a pure football perspective, Calde is worth a new one year contract, he is a cover player and has accepted that role, and no matter who plays at right back next season we will need cover.
Looking at the bigger picture, the club is growing in every sense of the word. The stadium is being recognized as an international venue, we are just the second club in English history that has been able to sell the naming rights to it's new facility, Man United being the other and, the regular crowd numbers are bigger than some prem level clubs. With the growth of the club on all all levels, including the out reach community programs, more people will be needed and I see no reason why Calderon shouldn't be one of those people when he final days of his playing career are over.

Would a decison to find a future role for Calde sometime down the road be born out of sentiment, possibly, but if Calde wasn't the servant to the club and the community that he is, we wouldn't even be talking about it.
I have never read such non-football rubbish about a footballer in my life.You need to wake up or grow up my friend.
THE BOSCH you responded to VS well understand that side of pond don't have (WORD CARING) so HOPE CALDE has a future here ?? DONT BANK ON IT SEE WHAT THE CLUB HAS DONE TO DICK KNIGHT WONT SELL HIS BOOK ETC ETC JUST LIKE ABBA " MONEY MONEY" BBB'SSSSSSS.

Calde is a legend and will, eventually, have his banner up outside the west stand. If he ends his playing career with us then I can see him staying in some capacity, either as coach (assuming he gets his badges) or a goodwill ambassador, something else he seems naturally suited for.

Top man and decent player who has made Brighton his home.

Calde has the tattoo of a seagull on his inner thigh with "Albion forever: 2010 til I die" inscribed underneath it.

Legend status is dependent on how he is viewed by the club and its fans. Calde is loved by all, especially by his tattooist.
