Ashley Barnes can play role for Seagulls in play-off push

The Argus: Ashley Barnes, centre, celebrates promotion with Burnley Ashley Barnes, centre, celebrates promotion with Burnley

ASHLEY Barnes could play a big part in Albion’s push for the play-offs after helping his new club Burnley to the Premier League.

The former Seagulls striker put the Clarets on course for their promotion-clinching win at home to Wigan on Monday with the opening goal.

It was Barnes’ third since moving from Albion in January for an undisclosed fee, reported in Lancashire as £450,000.

Now his old team-mates will be hoping he remains in goalscoring mood in Burnley’s last two matches of the season against two of Albion’s rivals for sixth place.

They entertain Ipswich in an early kick-off on Saturday, then go to Reading on the final day.

Barnes’ volley against Wigan was a reminder of the success he enjoyed with Albion. He said: “I got one like it at Brighton (against Dagenham) when they got promoted to the Championship. This one was by far the best of my career so far, and it will always remain the best to get to the Premier League. What a feeling.”

When Barnes was transferred the reports were of 750k,if it was actually 450k someone needs to be taken to task. Don,t think he will concern himself with Albions plights unfortunately.

What makes Argus think Ashley will do us any favours? The last 18 months or so that he played for Albion, he just got 'stick' from the fans.
I wasn't his greatest fan, but we have to realise he has moved on, and we can't rely on other clubs and players to do us any favours. It is up to us and our players to step up.

Love the fact Argus journo's need to read fans comments to keep copy coming. What is more of a concern is the missing ( if it is ! ) £300K It was reported he went for £750K. At £450K we could have held on until the Summer and taken a punt that he my have helped et u o the Prem. If we failed we would take £450K risk and lost..
something dos not add up (again)!

Andy Naylor, I am delighted to see that you not only read our posts but use them as the basis for articles. On another thread, at the unearthly hour of 5:42 this morning, I wrote
"I didn't appreciate it at the time but I now know what an astute piece of business it was to tranfer Barnesy to Burnley. Those with foresight could see that he would in fact carry on helping with the Albion cause right through to the bitter end. As we struggle to scrape 3 points at the City ground on the 3rd of May young Ash will be slotting away the winner at the Mad Jerksky stadium, thus catapulting us into the play-offs. I have often been less than polite about the suits and those responsible for football policy - and even less about AB - but I stand corrected and apologise to all concerned. They move in mysterious ways, them men in suits."

I shall expect a commission Andy...!!!

Exactly the same happened with Bridcutt. It was reported as 'undisclosed' with quiet suggestions on the south coast putting it at around £3/3.5m plus add-ons. Up in the North East (and subsequently reported in national papers) it was a straight £2.5m with Gus shouting out loud about how he'd got a bargain.
It doesn't look good from our club's perspective.

Yes Barnes knew it was time to go to a progressive club with ambition and now look, already in the premier league in just a few months. Terrible business from our point of view, Burnley and Barnes are the winners. And what have we replaced him with? A bunch of nobody's. We should have got 2 million for Barnes, instead he was let go for peanuts. And now he may want to rub our faces in it, maybe by missing an open goal or penalty in the next games for the way he was treated by Albion.

Give it a rest please Naylor.

Boro could do us a favour, Thanks Eddie Howe for getting that equaliser against Ipswich, Barnes could help us out.... blah blah...

The only ones we should be looking at is ourselves. We should have beaten Blackpool, Ipswich and Boro. It made me laugh so much reporting on how Boro could hep us out, when we should have beaten them to save all this c**p.

How can we think about getting into the play offs with this attitude? Hope the team we may play against at wembley fails to turn up.

I just find it all very depressing....when we scraped in under Lloyd in 1991 it was all very exciting and the town was buzzing....this is is just lethargic.

Agents don't take 40 per cent,I have a colleague who is an agent.
It may have been prudent to have kept Barnes until season end and let him go for free.I have never been a great Barnes fan but he would have added a bit of physical presence for the run in. Another post commented about him playing in the Pl,he probably won,t get much play time but he will be on increased salary for the next two years of his contract,so it was a no brainer for him,good luck to him.

congratulations getting to the perm!!

He does for Burnley the job he did for us. Honest endeavour, not massively skilful, but wholehearted. He will do the same for them next year, be on the subs bench, get the odd start, secure in the knowledge he would have only offered a one year deal with us but has couple more seasons with Burnley on more money than he would have got here.

If he had waited to go to Burnley at the end of the season he would have not gone. Who else wanted him, penniless Leeds and soon to be relegated Barnsley, who too couldn't afford much.

Anyone or anything is only worth what someone is prepared to pay. It's the way of the world and it's no good moaning about it.

Ashley was an integral part of our squad and I didn't want him to go, but go he did and good luck to him. I think the fans drove him out as well as the club not being willing to give him the security he desired. Our loss is Burnley's gain. UTA

If we failed we would take £450K risk and lost.. something dos not add up (again)![/p][/quote]ha!ha!- reckon you're right seeing as I posted the Barnsey thing after the Reading match! Dunno why people are getting so upset about it - some of us liked Barnsey! Either which way it was a flippant remark because personally I think Burnley will tonk Reading - certainly can't see them getting more than a draw - so for me - situation remains the same -- win the next two matches! C'mon OG - tactics ....[/p][/quote]Dont be a fool, cant you see the alcohol in the picture.Burnley god bless them will be on the beach. Easy win for reading[/p][/quote]Ha!Ha! - no chance of catching up on Readings GD then![/p][/quote]hope your right mate.UTA ringtone

Vegas did feast his eyes on the article and, yeah it pretty much tells it as it is, we are skint, and will remain so for a while to come, untill we meet, in full, the FFP rules, probably 2 or 3 years from now.
It's real easy for people to call for more spending on players but where does the money come from? Any club that has tried to buy promotion this year, but doesn't make it, will suffer over the coming years, one year of spending could take maybe 4 or 5 years to get over.

I have said all along, the club has to generate outside income streams, the gate money just isn't going to cut it. I may not get over to the UK to watch the matches but figures are figures no matter from where you look at them.
The big decision that has ot be made regarding next season is, how much money will be released, from the naming rights and shirt deal, to improve the squad, and how much is going to have to be used to cut our existing debt. For me the answer is simple, reduce the debt first and foremost, and invest in the new squad as best we can.
When we make the break even figure, then and only then can new money all be directed toward the squad. The shirt deal won't be a lump sum, it is most likely equal payments spread over the term of the contract, and probably the same for the naming rights. If this is the case, it won't be long before we will break even, and who knows what ther deals might pop up.

Very interesting Neville.
I think it is possible that what we have seen this season is the Club throwing everything at a promotion attempt, while keeping within the financial constraints of FFP.
there might not be the opportunity to invest as much in the team next season, so we are relying on transfer fees and wages to come down. That is why transfer negotiations are on hold until it is clearer how far wages can fall in the new financial conditions that all clubs are faced with.
As the article says ''Being a Championship club is a license to lose money''.
B&HA are taking FFP seriously, and It is likely to take priority over a promotion push next season. That is why going up this season would be far more preferable.

Assuming you are a genuine fan, please tell me..

Who writes your script? If yourself, it must be really uncomfortable living inside your head....

Does Barnes actually think he'll get to play regularly in the Prem?
How many of the players in the teams that go up WILL ever feature much on the pitch next season? Fewer and fewer each year, with more and more drafted in from overseas.
Beats me how managers motivate players to get promoted to a league that very few will survive in.

There is a person on this thread who spells the word 'idea' I-D-E-A-R

Can you spot that person? Instead of constantly writing negative drivel on this thread, wouldn't it be better for him to go to an adult literacy class?
Just a thought.....
