Calde up for the fight

Inigo Calderon says he always intended to re-sign for Albion

Inigo Calderon says he always intended to re-sign for Albion

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

Albion stalwart Inigo Calderon had no hesitation signing up for another battle with fellow Spaniard Bruno.

The right-back rivals have both penned new one-year deals, along with reserve goalkeeper Casper Ankergren.

Calderon, 32, has played second fiddle to Bruno for the past two seasons but is happy to be part of the Sami Hyypia era after a visit to the World Cup in Brazil.

He said: “Brighton is the place I want to be. It has only been a matter of time, because I agreed everything earlier in the close season, but I was not here to sign.

“It was all very straightforward after the club said that they wanted me for one more year. That’s been great for me. I was able to enjoy my time off, because it can be quite complicated if you are without a club.

“I am very excited now because we have been doing really well in the last few seasons so we want try to do a bit more to get into the play-offs or even go straight up into the Premier League.

“With the new manager and training ground, I am really looking forward to the new season.”

Bruno is relishing competition again from Calderon to be part of Hyypia’s defence.

“I was really happy for Calde and he’s a really important player for us,” Bruno said. “We have a good relationship but what is more important for us is the team. When you want the best for the team everything is easier.”

Calderon’s World Cup trip included tickets for Spain’s game against Chile, supplied by former Albion team-mate Gonzalo Jara.

He said: “They were with the Chile fans and that was a brilliant experience. I felt for him when he missed the penalty against Brazil but he can be proud as he had a brilliant tournament.”

Sky sports last night reported that Leicester are to make a improved offer to get Leo, if it does happen hope it is done sooner rather than later, we wait and see if they do make a offer what the club do take the money, or reject it after they said we don't need to sell, 8 million plus then I would think they would let him go,

Morning if we have turned down three bids already no one actually knows it might off been in the 5million bracket, with Leo being our player and still under contract we can value him at what ever price we think he is worth, more we get if he leaves better for the club,

Agree totally - 5 Million is about right. Cannot really see any reason why it should be more than that although obviously I would be delighted if it was.

We turned down 5 mill from palace, Leicester will pay 7.5 million and there is a reason they will pay over the odds for him, clubs going up can't get top top centre forwards to sign for them, someone like Lukaka would cost 7-8 million but there would be half a dozen clubs who would sign him, Leo while being a bigger gamble because he has not played premier football could be that player who scores 15 and keeps Leicester in the premier league!!if he does that he is cheap at 10 million.
If Leo scores 20 his value would be 12-15 million in a year!
The other point is this .... What value would he be for us in 12 months if he scores 10 this coming year? Sale value 3 million if we are lucky!

Presume you're referring to Byron Anthony - I was sat directly in line with that incident, it was without doubt a 50/50 tackle with no malicious intent whatsoever. Daresay it's on the net somewhere. Bad injury yes, bad tackle no. More importantly, Calde left the ground before the post match briefing and went straight to the hospital to check on how Anthony was. Additionally, Anthony has subsequently said that it was just that - a 50/50 challenge with no ill intent. Calde's conduct after the game and subsequently have been nothing but exemplary - as suggested, he is a gentleman and I'm very pleased he has signed for another year. What he occasionally ( rarely ) lacks in pace and skill is more than made up for with passion for the shirt and he always gives 110% in every game he plays.

Good informative post. Thanks, Mark.
Your thinking Mark is pretty much exactly what I have been saying for some time now. As I said to AGT999 in the last couple of days, if Leo doesn't have a decent season his value will drop like a stone. For some weeks now I too have said that Brighton should consider what his goals could mean, in terms of money, to Leicester if he helps keep the in the prem. On this matter Mark you and I are in full agreement.

It doesn't matter what way people look at this possible sale, the buyer is taking a gamble. Leo is untested at the top level and I think Leicester are fully aware of this fact, hence they are reluctant to simply pay what we are asking. It appears that Leicester stand alone in their desire to get this deal done, no other prem clubs are chasing him.
Leo's, 'real,' value is probably 4 to 5 million but one decent season in the prem and you can add a further 10 million, with that in mind no way Brighton let him go for his, 'real,' value.

The idea of selling him for 5M and more if he scores X number of goals would work for me as he might not get them, 8M cash or no deal.

Whilst on the subject of right backs, did any of you guys see the young lad Yedlin perform for the USA national side yesterday, this is a lad I would love to see Brighton sign. He is only 20 but plays above his years in terms of seeing a danger, and man is he fast.
I doubt that he would cost much more than 350K, maybe 400K, but work permit might be an issue.

i'd like to see ochoa in goal hehe but think more likely butland one new cb with hyppia working on dunks game i expect him to be a regular starter maybe jake bidwell (LB) from brentford if we dont get ward back if leo goes id like us to go for assombalonga other than that dont really have a strong opinion
I agree about dunk having more game time this season. I think we will get ward back and agree with butland. Would like to see Becchio upfront.

Calderon is everything you say he is Singing Seagull. Here is a thought; suppose that we don’t find an assistant manager in the near future and Nathan Jones steps in and does a job there, couldn’t Calderon step into the first team coach position?
On the down side of course Sami is a defender as well and my want to sort that part of the team himself.

Ross McCormack. Sorry but say Fulham offer 5 million, then offer 5.5 or 6, there's the Ulloa money coming in shortly by all accounts. Real Madrid would never have their 'galacticos' tag with this sort of attitude.

Agree totally - 5 Million is about right. Cannot really see any reason why it should be more than that although obviously I would be delighted if it was.
We turned down 5 mill from palace, Leicester will pay 7.5 million and there is a reason they will pay over the odds for him, clubs going up can't get top top centre forwards to sign for them, someone like Lukaka would cost 7-8 million but there would be half a dozen clubs who would sign him, Leo while being a bigger gamble because he has not played premier football could be that player who scores 15 and keeps Leicester in the premier league!!if he does that he is cheap at 10 million.
If Leo scores 20 his value would be 12-15 million in a year!
The other point is this .... What value would he be for us in 12 months if he scores 10 this coming year? Sale value 3 million if we are lucky!
Similar to Zamora. Everton offered 3.5m but DK got greedy and wanted 5m. In the end he went to Spurs for 1.5m

I think there maybe a player in Newport who would disagree with that.
Presume you're referring to Byron Anthony - I was sat directly in line with that incident, it was without doubt a 50/50 tackle with no malicious intent whatsoever. Daresay it's on the net somewhere. Bad injury yes, bad tackle no. More importantly, Calde left the ground before the post match briefing and went straight to the hospital to check on how Anthony was. Additionally, Anthony has subsequently said that it was just that - a 50/50 challenge with no ill intent. Calde's conduct after the game and subsequently have been nothing but exemplary - as suggested, he is a gentleman and I'm very pleased he has signed for another year. What he occasionally ( rarely ) lacks in pace and skill is more than made up for with passion for the shirt and he always gives 110% in every game he plays.
I couldn't agree more Starlion. I was also just yards away and I remember thinking at the time, there was no way it was even a foul, just a genuine 50/50. Even the red card was rescinded, as I recall. All this shows is how sad, crass, mis-informed and troll like a certain Ringtone is. Wow, just when I thought you couldn't stoop any lower, you prove me wrong. If you are happy in your gutter, I pity you.

Re the price for Ulloa if he goes to Leicester it has been reported that the Albion have rejected 3 bids the last being £5 million or £7 million depending on the report. Those reports circulating 3 weeks ago quoted £5 mill but the one in the Mirror last week quoted £7 mill. - take your pick.

I wouldn't pay too much attention to Ringtone's banal ramblings. Taking this one into context, I made a positive comment about a decent Albion player, Jeff Lomer endorsed it and said surely nobody could disagree. I guess that was just like a red rag to a bull and "that tackle" was the only possible angle that Ringtone could find. I knew it was coming!!

don't wanna do it like that says...

I was at the game did think it was a heavy foul.depends where you sit.

Seeing it from a different angle was 50/50 tackle.

Inigo is a very nice man,have met him a few times.

If he should go for badges would be a great lad to have here.

But to get up at 5.35 to post.

You must be a loyal fan(poster).

The last parts were banter,it does seem imho a lot do not get it.

I love Albion but unfortunately we have missed the boat,the PL is fixing it that the FL teams are not welcome.

Youth-para-loans,not just Albion as some on here think i'm having a go at,eg fines for breaking the ffp rules would go to the FL,well it going to charity,para payements going from 4 to 2 years,in portugal dyke lost the B prem vote but most of the talk was about artificial pitches.

Should be angry with the falmer villagers who cost the amex a long time behind schedule,some might now be loyal fans.

Joking apart would be good revenue stream which we could use to invest in our own team.

Agree totally - 5 Million is about right. Cannot really see any reason why it should be more than that although obviously I would be delighted if it was.
We turned down 5 mill from palace, Leicester will pay 7.5 million and there is a reason they will pay over the odds for him, clubs going up can't get top top centre forwards to sign for them, someone like Lukaka would cost 7-8 million but there would be half a dozen clubs who would sign him, Leo while being a bigger gamble because he has not played premier football could be that player who scores 15 and keeps Leicester in the premier league!!if he does that he is cheap at 10 million.
If Leo scores 20 his value would be 12-15 million in a year!
The other point is this .... What value would he be for us in 12 months if he scores 10 this coming year? Sale value 3 million if we are lucky!
I understand your throwing figures around,but Lukaka for 7-8 million,then you have to put the value on Ulloa at 2 million.
Yes but Lukaka would never join a club likely to struggle in the premier league, established premier players won't want to struggle and lower there wages , most clubs have relegation controls to wages in contracts..
And that's my whole point, it's the clubs going up who will have a punt on a gamble , as they know they won't sign a established player who could join Everton or Sunderland .. Look at norwich , they gambled on bechio and the wolf winkle .. Spent a fortune as someone with premier class won't go near that deal.

It's not that we're a joke club but the bottom line is that more money needs to be available for players. It might be that a slightly different approach is needed, maybe bloom could sell part of the club to a wealthy investor but retain a majority. It might be the only way we can bankroll a serious promotion challenge. Ulloa is almost certainly off to Leicester but unless we are prepared to spend 5 million plus on a replacement we will not even get the goals that he scored last season, and we often struggled for goals then. I wouldn't get too despondent but investment in players does need to happen soon.

I doubt that there are many people working in the football world that would consider Brighton a, 'joke,' and probably none in the Britain.
The strides that Brighton have taken over the last few years are amazing and if Hyypia proves to be as good as we hope he is, he will provide the stability at management level that we havn't had in recent times.

Reducing our losses, to zero if possible, should be paramount for once done some serious money can be spent on the squad. I actually think that the budget for this coming season might be bigger than some on here think. The good thing is that the club had a financial plan to reduce our debt by the required amount for last season even if we didn't sell players, which of course we did.

If Brighton are a joke, I think that there are a whole lot of clubs that would like to be just as funny. How many clubs at our level, and some of the prem clubs, have the facilities and gate numbers that we have. New players will start arrving soon, and with any luck all the ball crap that some seem to enjoy posting will evaporate.

Don't think anyone considers us a joke tug with what we have! A new stadium, a new academy, 25000+ crowds etc, but what is becoming a bit farcical is our approach to getting players in, we seem to be looking for champ/prem players with a division 1 budget! It's great that we are working within this budget and what we can afford, but, we need to invest to progress further, is it this reluctance to bend on wages etc that could be our downfall.
EVERYTHING is in place, big sponsors (Amex, Nike), stadium being used by Rugby World Cup, England women's team, Rod Stewart gig etc, awards for food and program's and so on, but all this pales into insignificance if we as a team allow ourselves to drop down the table and god forbid get involved in a relegation battle!
No one seems to want to join us, even though we've been in the play offs the last 2 seasons, why? MONEY!
Even at £10k a week (half a million a year) we have players turning us down, Ward being the most obvious one! We need to break this mould or face becoming known as the club that almost made it!
WAKE UP BRIGHTON! before it's to late!

I couldn't agree more Starlion. I was also just yards away and I remember thinking at the time, there was no way it was even a foul, just a genuine 50/50. Even the red card was rescinded, as I recall. All this shows is how sad, crass, mis-informed and troll like a certain Ringtone is. Wow, just when I thought you couldn't stoop any lower, you prove me wrong. If you are happy in your gutter, I pity you.
I wouldn't pay too much attention to Ringtone's banal ramblings. Taking this one into context, I made a positive comment about a decent Albion player, Jeff Lomer endorsed it and said surely nobody could disagree. I guess that was just like a red rag to a bull and "that tackle" was the only possible angle that Ringtone could find. I knew it was coming!!

Ask Adrian Durham,talksport, and all the pompey fans about the antics your blue eyed boy gets up to when playing for Brighton.

Of course Indonesia aint gonna go to pompey even if he was in the uk or ever follow the club away from home.

Wow, just when I thought you couldn't stoop any lower, you prove me wrong. If you are happy in your gutter, I pity you.

I think there maybe a player in Newport who would disagree with that.
Presume you're referring to Byron Anthony - I was sat directly in line with that incident, it was without doubt a 50/50 tackle with no malicious intent whatsoever. Daresay it's on the net somewhere. Bad injury yes, bad tackle no. More importantly, Calde left the ground before the post match briefing and went straight to the hospital to check on how Anthony was.

You should post more often good post mate.
Cheers Jeff and Tug for earlier comments. To be honest I'm on here reading posts most days but it gets so bogged down with drivel that I just can't find the energy to respond. Anyway we are all entitled to our opinions - some clearly more informed than others - and i will always read and post occassionally.

What a monumental bellend. If you'd looked at this site over the last month you'd have seen I have posted maybe three times, and two of those laughing at Ringpiece's attempts at insight.

I made my proper 'return' only yesterday, but with your long-dreaded reappearance, Snark By The Sea still being an insufferable 'know-it-all pub- bore, Mayfield giving SBTS lessons in negativity, Ringpiece still being bizarrely weird and a couple of other WUMs I couldn't have timed it worse.

What a sad state of affairs, but all is not lost as they are still outnumbered by decent contributors - those who don't look down on others based on nothing other than their distance from the Amex. Those who are able to hold different opinions and constructive debate without being abusive. Those who actually support the club, rather than banging on about how long they've been watching them and how much they spend on them. May we be saved from those who pretend to have inside knowledge.

Don't think anyone considers us a joke tug with what we have!

It's great that we are working within this budget and what we can afford, but, we need to invest to progress further, is it this reluctance to bend on wages etc that could be our downfall.
EVERYTHING is in place, big sponsors (Amex, Nike), stadium being used by Rugby World Cup, England women's team, Rod Stewart gig etc, awards for food and program's and so on, but all this pales into insignificance if we as a team allow ourselves to drop down the table and god forbid get involved in a relegation battle!
No one seems to want to join us, even though we've been in the play offs the last 2 seasons, why? MONEY!
Even at £10k a week (half a million a year) we have players turning us down, Ward being the most obvious one! We need to break this mould or face becoming known as the club that almost made it!
WAKE UP BRIGHTON! before it's to late!

When ever I see the, 'he that shouldn't be named,' comments I can't help but think of a court jester, prancing and dancing around and generally making him self look a fool so as to entertain his master. The jester is convinced that he is funny, that he is doing what people want, but the truth is nobody is taking notice, he is nothing more than a distraction.

This person will never change, his act can not be improved, so we can all expect more of the same and most of us will just roll our eyes and move on.

And you will no doubt say well done to Burke and jones for losing the best coach we ever had ( I think that was your quote)
And finally we move onto season ticket sales .... Down 2000 on this time last year,

Good morning everyone. How pleasant to see the return of everyone's favourite fool (or jester) and to see how hard he has been working late into the night to spread his vile comments. It was nice while he was away but I guess he wasn't allowed access to computers or smartphones where he was so now he's got a head full of acidic comments to post - must be driving him crazy!

Interesting also to see MBTS jumped out of bed at 4am with his "I told you so" message and offering his informed insight into the minds of overseas contributors. He must have been soooo excited that he couldn't sleep! Shame he'll have to wait a few hours longer to cancel his season ticket. I assume he'll be doing that now as when he pays £1,000 he expects a promotion push as a minimum return on his investment and he doesn't seem to think we'll achieve that this season.

Meanwhile, a new day with new developments (announced or otherwise) awaits the remaining supportive supporters.

How do you support the club ? If you mean follow the clubs results then say so, but simply making silly comments about a side you don't watch or a ground you don't visit makes you a follower ,
There is a common denominator with the followers who make comments on here, 90% is based on disagreeing with others! rather than having solid points to contribute, I suppose you only read the argus which is spoon fed information by Paul Camlin.
Reading the argus online does not make you a supporter.

How do you support the club ? If you mean follow the clubs results then say so, but simply making silly comments about a side you don't watch or a ground you don't visit makes you a follower ,
There is a common denominator with the followers who make comments on here, 90% is based on disagreeing with others! rather than having solid points to contribute, I suppose you only read the argus which is spoon fed information by Paul Camlin.
Reading the argus online does not make you a supporter.
Good morning Mr Happy! 😄Have a fun filled day!

100% correct my friend.Be lucky to even stay up Sammy Lee thinks.Real crowds of about 15k next season i should think.
oh god, the scum has risen to the surface again.
It has been so pleasantly peaceful whilst you have been away....,
tick.. tick.. tick..
And you Ex-pat have still been on this site talking pure dream world rubbish every single day 24/7. You just help prove what a very sad little life you really do have.
What a monumental bellend. If you'd looked at this site over the last month you'd have seen I have posted maybe three times, and two of those laughing at Ringpiece's attempts at insight.

I made my proper 'return' only yesterday, but with your long-dreaded reappearance, Snark By The Sea still being an insufferable 'know-it-all pub- bore, Mayfield giving SBTS lessons in negativity, Ringpiece still being bizarrely weird and a couple of other WUMs I couldn't have timed it worse.

What a sad state of affairs, but all is not lost as they are still outnumbered by decent contributors - those who don't look down on others based on nothing other than their distance from the Amex. Those who are able to hold different opinions and constructive debate without being abusive. Those who actually support the club, rather than banging on about how long they've been watching them and how much they spend on them. May we be saved from those who pretend to have inside knowledge.

OldGull, BaldSeagull, Vegas, SMF20, Ballantrrae, Singapore, Jeff, Tug, Bexill, Mikey and many, many more - we will win with our positivity and never say die attitude :-D
Arnie , have you had enough humble pie,? The farce of three central defenders caught us with no cover at Derby!
Ulloa off to Leicester as I said he would 5 months ago and at the figure I quoted, did I pretend to have inside knowledge then?
As for last season, reason OG left was he asked for 6 players he wanted, not one came close to even meeting him. Instead he was given Lita obika and worse of all Lingard with the proviso he starts every game! And you will no doubt say well done to Burke and jones for losing the best coach we ever had ( I think that was your quote)
And finally we move onto season ticket sales .... Down 2000 on this time last year,
Just a quick question are you a loyal supporter like Indonesia ? Who thinks commenting on a free argus site somehow makes him that?
There must be a loneliness in you guys living overseas, looking for a kin on this site.
You are really quite pathetic and you have a very selective (and extremely unreliable) memory. Ulloa hasn't left any more than he left when you last banged on about him and your inside info.

It seems "loyal supporter" has become your phrase of choice - you are overusing it to an embarrassing degree. What does loyalty mean to you? I think you need to look it up as I don't think it means what you wrongly assume it does.

Give it up, Snark. You have become a troll. A sad end to what was a promising early start on this site. Sad.

loyalty

A strong feeling of support or allegiance.

Which part of that confuses you?

Mark why you feel the need to say, 'I told you so,' is beyond me, are you that desperate for someone to say, 'well done Mark, you were right.'
Were you raised in a family where your opinion was never noticed, even when valid, are you trying to make up for those years?
