Albion track Hammers keeper

The Argus: Stephen Henderson Stephen Henderson

Albion are interested in West Ham’s Stephen Henderson as they continue their hunt for a new No. 1.

The former Republic of Ireland under-21 international is on the Seagulls’ radar in their quest to replace the departed Tomasz Kuszczak.

Henderson still has a year left on a lucrative contract at West Ham United but may be prepared to accept a pay cut in search of regular first team football.

Albion could alternatively look to land the 26-year-old Dubliner on a long-term loan.

Henderson has already had seven loan spells during his career, including stints with Ipswich and Albion’s South Coast rivals Bournemouth last season.

He was due to be with the Cherries for three months but had to return to Upton Park after dislocating his shoulder in only his second appearance.

Henderson, nephew of former Albion No. 1 Wayne Henderson, began his career at Aston Villa.

The 6ft 2ins shot-stopper also had permanent spells with Bristol City and Portsmouth before signing two years ago for West Ham, where he has been limited to two League Cup outings. Albion’s search for a replacement for Kuszczak has been wide-ranging.

They are keen to take Stoke’s Jack Butland on loan and were interested in former Sunderland keeper Keiren Westwood before he signed for Sheffield Wednesday.

The Seagulls’ trip to Bournemouth has been brought forward from Saturday November 1 to Friday October 31 (7.45pm) for live coverage on Sky Sports.

Morning, I would like to see Walton been given a chance in goal, some might say he is to young and inexperienced, I would say we don't no until we give him a go he might surprise us.

To be honest not heard off Henderson, as the article says spent most off his career out on loan, what does that tell us shouldn't he be a number one on his own right this what happens when you move to the premiership and have very limited chance off breaking in to the first team, you get left behind sent out on loan, if Henderson the best choice then why not!!
I'd prefer Pepe Reina
Up the Albion!!

Don't agree on Walton.
As you suggest, putting him in would be a gamble and you can't leave yourself exposed if it goes wrong, So we need an experienced 'keeper and the reality is that such a player would be looking for first team football, not a position of emergency nursemaid. Walton may turn out to be a very good goalkeeper, but his exposure right now must be managed - for him and for us.
As for Pepe Reina.... Not a chance!! I think your preference is based on familiarity? Henderson is certainly lesser known but Eddie Howe is no dummy and surely he wouldn't have placed his trust in him last season if he wasn't acknowledged as good enough for the Championship?

Unimpressed at the possibility. Hang on for Butland who has proven ability. Or, go for Paddy Kenny who seems to be out of favour at Leeds for having been born on the wrong day. Or, re-sign Tomas.

Morning Staffs I was actually joking or more to the point wishfull thinking about Reinna,like you say if Howe rates him then he must be quite good, like most on here not heard off him so could not say if he is quality or not, shame we missed out on Westwood!!

too much talk of loans for me. I would much rather settle for a couple seasons of mid table meritocracy with young upcoming permanent players building for the future and a genuine premiership push rather than relying on loanees whereby you have to rebuild the team at the end of each season, unless of course we are talking about experienced Championship/Premier
ship players that know what it takes to get promoted- not fringe players with no track record. Walton for me over this unknown Henderson.

FYI: Henderson looked very promising keeper when he was at B'mth and it was a real shame he got injured. Luckily we managed to sign Lee Camp who is also very good, so you could do a lot worse.

My thinking about Walton is try him against Cheltenham in the league cup see if he sinks or swims, after all it is not a cup we have excelled at in recent years.

Another issue that may be irrelevant but the local Bristol rag is reporting that Bristol City are targeting Liam McAlinden a 20 year old Wolves striker. It is considered that this may be a precautionary measure in case Sam Baldock is sold.

Lewis (won 5-0) Partick Thistle (won 4-0) Real Betis (tonight), Crawley, Peterborough and Southampton.

The fans are, on the whole feeling down because of the FFP constraints that are stopping us making expensive signings and are leading to us losing some good players. Amazed that Bournemouth do not seem to be so constrained.

FFP: You and me both Major!!!
Fortunately apart from our mutual friend Lewis Grabban we seem to be holding on to our players, thats a first for the Cherries LOL. The Lallana transfer helped our coffers too.I would prefer it if the transfer window shut when the season began rather than at the end of August, makes no sense to me.

We drew with FC Copenhagen 2-2 last Friday and won 0-4 v Eastleigh on Tuesday. Forgot we're also playing Pompey on 29th. Looking forward to our first game 'Udderfield (A).

Have a fun Summer in Seagull-land and if you need a nice sandy beach to lie on you know where to come.
Cheers

A bit confused to read Notts Forest just completed the signing of Michael Mancienne from Hamburg for a reported £1.5 M.

Considering Sami was searching for a CB would it be that he simply didn't fancy him, or we were not able to raise £1.5M? He's only 26 and good experience.

Something is concerning me about our lack of activity. In no way am I being critical, just would be nice to know. After all, it's not as though this is something new now. We are seeing a steady pattern developing.

A frequent inability to match wages or transfer fees, really ever since Ulloa arrived. He was the last one who cost a fee and that was very reasonable.

Whether anyone else is getting similar vibes or maybe it's just me imagining things. I'd love to know if Mancienne was considered. If Sami didn't fancy him - that's fine - but as an accomplished CB himself I'd imagine he must have known about him.

Also, I'm impressed with the signings Crawley have made having cleared out quite a few. Now they have Collins John a striker only 28 who did well at Fulham. Together with all the other signings they've made it shows that there are players out there.

I'm sure there's going to be a real surprise package signing presented to us when it's all sealed and delivered. I'm sure we'll be pleasantly shocked and surprised when they announce it which will prove that we are truly going for the PL this season.

Just one point Ted Macs, you have too many dashes for the word curmudgeon, which is the word that no doubt you had in mind!!

Another issue that may be irrelevant but the local Bristol rag is reporting that Bristol City are targeting Liam McAlinden a 20 year old Wolves striker. It is considered that this may be a precautionary measure in case Sam Baldock is sold.
You should be on Countdowm Major!!

Agree about transfer window shutting when season starts, though different kick-offs would complicate that (Spain k/o two weeks after PL and three after us (usually) for example).

Forgot you're playing Pompey...easily done! ;0)

Afternoon Cap’n!

Signings so far:
Dan Gosling & Jnr Stanislas – good acquisitions, should fit in
Calum Wilson – Lge1 striker with potential, hope he realises it.
We also have some other trialists being looked at Rakish Bingham and are linked with Max Gradel too.

Eddie Howe plays his cards close to his chest so things don’t tend to come out until they pretty well done. Pre-season is early days so will be interested to see how we do against the Saints & Swansea.

Expectations for next season are more of the same as last season, our squad should be a bit stronger, so we’ll see what happens. Bottom line stay in the league, top line push for the play offs.

Now UTCIAD goes back to the dawn of time for us Cherries anyway, and is often heard in the North stand as follows

Bloke: Up The Cherries!!!
All: In All Departments!!!

Don’t ask me why, must have been a random response sometime that caught on and stuck with us.

Dan Gosling & Jnr Stanislas – good acquisitions, should fit in

- yes, some decent signings for Champ'ship.




Calum Wilson – Lge1 striker with potential, hope he realises it.

- I rate him. Think he'll do very well for you this season




We also have some other trialists being looked at Rakish Bingham and are linked with Max Gradel too.

- Gradel needs to re-establish himself after an indifferent recent period. Could have potential if signed. Don't know Bingham at all.




Eddie Howe plays his cards close to his chest so things don’t tend to come out until they pretty well done.

- sounds like our man Bloom




"Expectations for next season are more of the same as last season, our squad should be a bit stronger, so we’ll see what happens. Bottom line stay in the league, top line push for the play-offs."

- about right I'd say.

Wisdom--yes seems there ARE players out there, but one must assume they do not fit the bill for Sami & Co??
Is it that we are being too picky or the prospective players are demanding too much--if it is the latter then it is same old story. Some players have been paid too much for years, but as long as some Clubs are wiling to pay over the odds both as a signing on fee and in wages then players will continue to make these ridiculous demands.

Yes 'tis true tho' I think we got nearer £4m, I'm not complaining. Not bad for a bit of paper from SFC (Scouse Feeder Club).

All the best in your friendly with Real Betis

Could we not just bring TK back? Would be the best option surely? If not, Jack Butland is my choice.

Fortunately apart from our mutual friend Lewis Grabban we seem to be holding on to our players, thats a first for the Cherries LOL. The Lallana transfer helped our coffers too.I would prefer it if the transfer window shut when the season began rather than at the end of August, makes no sense to me.

We drew with FC Copenhagen 2-2 last Friday and won 0-4 v Eastleigh on Tuesday. Forgot we're also playing Pompey on 29th. Looking forward to our first game 'Udderfield (A).

Have a fun Summer in Seagull-land and if you need a nice sandy beach to lie on you know where to come.
Cheers
Agree about transfer window shutting when season starts, though different kick-offs would complicate that (Spain k/o two weeks after PL and three after us (usually) for example).

Forgot you're playing Pompey...easily done! ;0)

Sandy beach.....Worthing?! ;0)
HaHa!!! Worthing no! Worth-travelling 90 miles west for, yes!! Look out for the sinking Sailors and Gasworks on the way.

Watch you don't get stones between you toes!
Good luck Cherries
A well run club and deserved Championship place
We also have a sandy beach just go to the West Pier at low tide and put your towel out amongst the bait diggers
Back to topic,I think we should splash the bucks for a goalkeeper and not go down the loanee line
This season is beginning to look a bit like Easy Jet not Lufthansa
My big worry is that if Leo goes the money will be put into the bank and not spent on a replacement
We got good money for Liam and since then we have only brought two players to the club
Jesse on loan and Toko along with Hughes on a free
Maybe there will be some surprises in the next few weeks and I really hope that Sami is given some money to spend on what he see´s as the future for our club

easyJet & not Lufthansa? Well let's put it this way, easyJet are a successful and profitable company that strip away the bullsh@t and deliver you to your chosen destination with change in your pocket. Lufthansa might give you all the expensive trimmings but it's not cheap and anyway, you'll still be delivered to the same place with no change to spare. I'd rather see the boys delivered to the promised land (the Prem) on a sound financial footing and take an easyJet season any day :-0

Is it that we are being too picky or the prospective players are demanding too much--if it is the latter then it is same old story. Some players have been paid too much for years, but as long as some Clubs are wiling to pay over the odds both as a signing on fee and in wages then players will continue to make these ridiculous demands.
The English game is plagued with too many players on long contracts huge wages and very little to offer
The guys who will drop a division,drop their salary because they want to play football at all cost,are priceless
Let´s hope we find someone like this
