Keeper and defender top Hyypia wish list

Sami Hyypia

Sami Hyypia

First published in Sport by

Sami Hyypia has put a goalkeeper and centre-back at the top of his Albion wanted list.

But the Seagulls manager also admits his new team must solve their goalscoring “problem”.

Hyypia has told media in Finland he has spoken to his new club about signing “six or seven players” with a goalkeeper and a replacement for Matt Upson the most immediate needs.

He is keen for the club to continue their efforts to bring Wolves left-back Stephen Ward back to the Amex after a successful loan stint last year and said he is delighted to have Gordon Greer under contract.

He again underlined the importance of keeping striker Leo Ulloa on board, despite offers from Premier League new boys Leicester.

Albion netted just 55 times in the Championship last season, a tally bettered by 17 of their rivals.

Hyypia said: “Last season goalscoring was a problem and that is something that needs to be looked at.

“The club has rejected a few offers for him (Ulloa). I need to talk to him. Hopefully he will stay.”

Hyypia expects right-backs Bruno and Inigo Calderon to agree new deals and added: “With them we have agreed about extension I believe.

“We are trying to get Stephen Ward back.”

Fans will learn this morning whether Hyypia will be the first Albion manager since Steve Coppell almost 12 years ago to kick off his tenure with a home match.

Football League fixtures are released at 9am and complete lists for Albion and Crawley will immediately be available online at our website theargus.co.uk.

The Seagulls are at home to League Two side Cheltenham Town in the first round of the Capital One Cup (week starting August 11).

Morning, I see the Mexico keeper is available on a free transfer fantastic saves last night just a thought,
Definitely try and get Ward back quality left back, and a quality CB then the defence will be in place, hope we get a new striker to help us score a lot more goals,

On another note to all the negativity towards Hyppia appointment from some posters on here, just take a look who Leeds are appointing as there new coach ex Forest Green manager, thank god we have Tony Bloom at the helm and not that Italian at Elland road, I can assure you there new coach has not gone down well with Leeds fans and why should it to be honest!!
Up the Albion!!!!

Let's be frank we need a new starting 11 really, especially if Ulloa goes. He will be unsettled by the lure of the premier league now anyway so may not be much use even if he stays. Let us hope the Burke team have set up some good player deals and that Sami agrees with them. I must say I'm concerned and disappointed about the lack of activity, the lack of transfer rumours and the type of players we may or may not sign. Hopefully rabbits will be pulled out of hats and quickly.

One central defender? We need two,
Ulloa wants to go, expect transfer request next week when he returns from holiday..
If we are looking for a good keeper , then they will want 20k a week, so looks like someone we have never heard of!

On a wider point, it's interesting that this story is inspired by Hyppia's comments to Finnish media rather than it being given directly to The Argus.
Many of the stories on here are driven by comments either from elsewhere or prefaced with words such as; "told the club's official website"
It paints a picture for me that The Argus isn't fully in the loop, which would explain the frustrations aired on here from time to time about there being no news. If I'm right, it's not the paper's fault. Equally it isn't the club's either. It's their right to restrict their own content on the basis of delivering it first from their own platforms, but from where we sit, it isn't particularly helpful.
Either that, or Sami has found a way to circumnavigate the system already!

I think they need a midfielder who can unlock defences...a goalkeeper, 2 defenders and a forward and a utility player for starters....lack of activity speaks volumes with the season approaching.... I'm sure someone like Sherwood or Mackay would have laid their cards on the table with barber and highlighted the players required to gain promotion.... Anyway hypias there and barbers pulling the strings...harmony will probably exist for a period until the players hypia wants aren't on barbers wish list...

It would be interesting to know in exactly which positions the 6 to 7 potential player signings referred t on this thread would feature.
We have been told GK and CB plus the club hopes Ward at LB. That leaves potentially up to 4 more recruits.
Since we have been linked with the young Orient winger Odubajo (which surprises me with our wing resources) and are also apparently interested in Tejeda the Costa Rican defensive midfielder I guess (pure speculation) that we are looking to strengthen those two positions.
That just leaves two more slots to be filled. I imagine one of those would be another striker and for the other I would hope that we would bring in a creative attacking midfielder.
With only just over a week before the squad reports back for pre-season testing (26 June) SH hasn't got a lot of time to acquire more players. Whilst there is no absolute need to sign players in the next 10 days, I think the club would benefit if most of the squad were in place by the time the team leaves for Spain.
Thoughts anyone ? UTA.

I think they meant that a manager in their first season didn't kick-off with a home game - the Doncaster game at the Amex wasn't Gus's first season with the club. At least, that's my interpretation.

It would appear that the Argus has ruffled a few feathers at the Club, while doing their job, which is to report news and speculation.
The complete absence of any Argus stories originating from The Amex would suggest that there is a ban on staff talking to The Argus. That would include Sami.

Look mate you might not like it being said but the fact is that we do need at least 8 players, more if Ulloa goes. You can moan and point fingers as much as you like but it won't change the reality of the situation. All is not lost, we may sign real quality, Hyypia might turn out to be a miracle worker, who knows? Too early to say. But we need to sign and sign well. Hopefully there will be positive headlines to read in due course.

I guess with Hyypia stating the need for a new keeper Walton will not be starting the season as our number one.
As pointed out by others, one center back isn't enough, even if we look to the DS lads to provide cover.
The declared desire to sign Ward is good news, and if Calde and Bruno accept their new deals at least part of our defense unit will be in place.

With per-season training rapidly approaching it would be handy to have at least two or three of our transfer targets in place, but we might have to wait to see all of our vacancies filled. Seven players wanted and if three of them are loanees from prem clubs, we may have to wait on the prem clubs to sort out their transfer dealings before they are ready to arrange loan deals.

Isn't it question of finance and therefore a godsend for Albion and indeed other teams. I don't agree with loans between premiership clubs but see no harm and lots of benefits for clubs like ours loaning players from the top league or abroad.

So like watford with Zola,not ment to you but it **** ME of,the loan system.

It kinda makes the seaon unfair for the poor(not popular) relations.

It is a bit like the para payments.

It paints a picture for me that The Argus isn't fully in the loop, which would explain the frustrations aired on here from time to time about there being no news. If I'm right, it's not the paper's fault. Equally it isn't the club's either. It's their right to restrict their own content on the basis of delivering it first from their own platforms, but from where we sit, it isn't particularly helpful.
Either that, or Sami has found a way to circumnavigate the system already!
Agree with your comment,but why can the Argus not ask SH for an interview.

Is there some sort of agreement (rule)with the club that prevents this.
It would appear that the Argus has ruffled a few feathers at the Club, while doing their job, which is to report news and speculation.
The complete absence of any Argus stories originating from The Amex would suggest that there is a ban on staff talking to The Argus. That would include Sami.
It's certainly how it looks to me but to be clear, this particular thread is inspired by my earlier speculation which was based on nothing other than gut feeling.
I admire the club's ongoing determination to steer a consistent path, but the apparent dearth of information, or, in the absence of specific information, general feature/preview material available to The Argus, does smack of a restrictive approach.

So, Jeff, anything that doesn't agree with your view of life is a negative is it? How arrogant is that? Anyone who naysays you is abusive, are they? Any post that is short and to the point is not a proper debate, is it? Everything the Albion does is beyond reproach, is it?
Jeff, you truly are an idiot....but then that was obvious from your spelling and grammar. Yes, that is offensive isn't it? Now you know what your posts feel like.
(If you really think I care about your reply, think again as I won't read it. Nor do I care about the ridiculous thumbs down system. Gossamer's Law: the amount of thumbs down is inversely proportional to the IQ of the posters.)
Morning!
Why is it those that consistently post negative views of the Albion complain when others disagree with them?
They often go as far as saying that the positive posters are being negative in their reactions.

I suppose if you use a scientific approach, 2 negatives make a positive.
So as long as you have an even number of these negative posters they are indeed being positive posters.
This would explain why MBTS & Ringtone often pair up or indeed
Claude & Mayfield.
Do pjwilk & Taffster get it together?

As for freeloaders he is entirely negative.

Why dont you make a contribution cockwomble? Instead of sniping at readers posts.

Lets hear what cockwomble dislikes about the Albion and the Dunk situation.

Funny how we dont hear from Arnie anymore, well more refreshing actually.

If Ulloa is determined to leave, if he is determined to to take his chance,'now,' for prem football and prem money, I doubt that there is much the club can do to stop him from leaving. With so much time left on his contract, and with his value to us on the park so clear to both club and fan base, one can be forgiven why we even give out contracts, they mean so little these days.
The only good thing that will come from seeing Leo leave is that the club will get a good fee, and if he asks for a transfer, all of the fee stays with the club.

Hyypia is right, he must speak to Leo very quickly for if he is to go, Brighton might need to adjust it's plans on the transfer front. If he were not to go we might well borrow a striker to add to Leo and CMS, by selling Ulloa my guess would be that we would spend to replace him rather than borrow. The price for Leo has to be between seven and ten million, nothing less will do if only because of what his goals mean to our club. Just think what his goals might mean to Leicester, they could be worth tens of millions if they help them survive this season, ten million could look like a bargain this time next year.

Exactly Vegas you have hit the nail on the head, if we were to spend ten million now it could look like a bargain this time next year when we are promoted to the prem. If only the board would see it like that.

No but sell Ulloa and combine with Bridcutt money plus all the ticket money the club is sitting on and 10 mill won't be a problem.

cockwomble
Still here Ringpiece. Still keeping out of arguments with the boring and depressed HWMNBN. Still chuckling as you accuse others of being me.

Just as a refresher as I know you miss me lots and lots and lots: I trust the club more than I trust you. There is no "Dunk situation". Cockwomble is just another added to the list of those whose posts I scroll through. He is tedious (IMO), but he has judged you quickly and correctly - you are indeed a cockwomble.

I'll be back regularly when there's some proper news, so put it in your diary. Until then I'm enjoying the World Cup tremendously. The coverage here is awful though, it ALMOST makes me miss Robbie Savage.
