Seagulls transfer target Ward in line to face Ronaldo

Albion transfer target Stephen Ward could face Cristiano Ronaldo in a surprise appearance for the depleted Republic of Ireland.

The left-back on loan to the Seagulls from Wolves last season has flown out to the States to cover for injured Stoke defender Marc Wilson ahead of Ireland’s clash with Portugal in New Jersey in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

Ward played in the recent 0-0 draw for Martin O’Neill’s side against Italy at Fulham but was not in the squad for the opening game of the American trip on Saturday morning, when Wilson suffered a hamstring injury in the stalemate with Costa Rica.

Portugal’s friendly against the Republic is expected to signal the return from injury of Real Madrid star Ronaldo in their final warm-up for the World Cup in Brazil.

Albion are keen to bring Ward back to the Amex permanently but are understood to be facing competition from Championship rivals Middlesbrough.

Wow, two in one morning! Another story not worthy of comment.
Apart that is, from this comment about it being not worthy of comment. Which, I suppose DOES make it worthy of comment, if only to illustrate that it's not worthy of any comment whatsoever.
So there you have it. A non-comment on a non-story.
Perfect.

Interested to hear that we are interested in getting ward back. A strong player from last year IMO. Surprised he would have a tough choice between our facilities, settled in Brighton with the chance to learn from Hyypia. Unless this comes down to a pure money deal pretty sure he'd choose us. If not there will be plenty of defenders very keen on coming to us this year. I wouldn't even be surprised if there was a tinge of regret from Upson for leaving given he is likely not to be a first choice starter in most games for Leicester

Yes ward is 28 I think , the next three year deal will probably be the highest potential contract , i have no doubt he will join another club if there is interest , i can't remember the last player we kidnapped from another club.

It would be a shame if we were to miss out on Ward, one of our most consistent performers last season, who popped up with a few goals too. I do wonder about FFP and whether or not it is being used as a smokescreen for other issues. I have no problem with the club being run on a financially sound footing but there are a number of clubs who have openly flouted FFP guidelines and will probably escape punishment, then again there are relegated clubs who have the huge advantage of parachute payments and then there are few like ourselves who are trying to operate within sensible parameters. It does surprise me that a big gamble like Tony Bloom is playing it so safe. Maybe if he'd pushed the boat out last season for Van Diik, we'd now have a player worth £10m on the books, but I don't know enough about the finances to question the policy. I do, however, think that FFP will turn out to be a toothless idea and that, as ever, those with money will do exactly what they want.

And Forest, who's finances must be a shambles, have acquired yet another striker (from the PL) in Matty Fryatt. With several clubs including us reportedly interested they must have committed even more money that they can't afford under FFP.

If you think about it we are at greater disadvantage than just lack of parachute payments and it seems being one of a handful of clubs complying with FFP.
If Duncan is right this is yet another player preferring not to play so far south. I think Conway preferred to remain closer to family up north. Take into account the high cost of living down south then this is an even greater disadvantage.
On another thread I wonder what Gus is feeling losing Colback to the Toon.

My boss is a Sunderland fan, the first thing he said when he came in was how sickening it was to see him in a Newcastle shirt. Made me laugh though.

if someone had just verbally read this comment to me, without saying who posted it, I would have known in an instant that this is fom Mark, I think this guy has gone from a sensible contributor to nothing more than a troll looking for a reaction.
That's right Vegas , and when I read a small book on here I know it's you licking the clubs rear end...
Can I remind you how you and Arnie assured all of us who complained about the football we actually pay to watch with season tickets , that Oscar would bring his own players in and move them around like chess pieces
Can you tell me how many times you have seen Sam Hoskins actually play in the flesh? Not on tv but in the flesh? Your happy for the club to spend on someone you know diddly squat about..
Anyone can come on here sucking up to one another , telling us lesser mortals who are real fans not keyboard muppets, how we can't see the truth according the wordsmith Vegas ..
Your backing Hhypia, your backing jones , funny you don't mention how you defended OG last season?
You never question why we have lost two excellent coaches/ managers in 12 months? Bother done excellently well ?

Who is Sam Hoskins?

If you mean Will Hoskins, the club did the decent thing and gave him a contract whilst he recovered from serious injury.

Are you saying you would just kick out a player who suffered a season long injury playing for your club?

Real compassion MBTS

What would it take for you to stop whingeing?

Well Mark again you are off target with your trolling.

As you are very aware, I stated very clearly that I was basing my thoughts, re Yoevil's Hoskins, on just one performance, I also mentioned that he is not the finished article but possibly one for the future.

You think that I should defend Garcia's season with us, now why should I do that when I actually think that, under the circumstances, he did very well. Oscar's year doesn't need defending, not by me or him.

You consider yourself a, 'real fan,' well that may be true but if you are, then you are the most pesimistic fan in the history of fans. I am backing Hyypia, of course I am, he is our club's new manager, as a, 'real fan,' are you not supporting him? The new role for Jones could be very good for both him and the club, and Hyypia has made it clear thathe is happy with things the way they are, or perhaps you think our new manager is a liar, is that it?

Agreeing with others that post sensible opinions and comments isn't sucking up, I can see why you would think it is as your comments always have a downward slope to them. Those that enter into genuine debate are open to a positive view as well as a negative ones, your comments, well they just start in a downward direction and keep on rolling.

Going back to Hoskins, if my memory serves me well, the day that we played Yoevil there were several on here saying pretty much what I said today, many had a good opinion of the lad.

As I said earlier Mark, in my opinion you are falling into the depths of a troll, posting for effect and nothing more. It won't be long before your comments just get skipped over, not worth the bother of even glancing at.

yep that is where my orginal thoughts were going but, when you think back to how well Ward performed, it's kinda hard to accept Chicksen as first choice and Maksi as back up. I am not suggesting that Chicksen is not good, it's just that Ward was so good.
