New boy O'Grady offers more than goals

Chris O'Grady looks to hold the ball up for Rochdale

Chris O'Grady looks to hold the ball up for Rochdale

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

It is tempting to be underwhelmed by Albion’s move for Chris O’Grady, as has been the case with many supporters reacting on social media.

Losing Leo Ulloa to Leicester and gaining a striker who has spent a fair proportion of a career with 11 clubs out on loan in the lower divisions looks, on the face of it, a regressive step.

But Albion’s latest transfer business has to be put into context.

O’Grady has scored 26 goals in 100 Championship appearances for Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley.

He will not be as prolific as Ulloa but then again he is not meant to be.

O’Grady is not a direct replacement for the Argentinian. He was already on the Seagulls’ radar in their quest to strengthen the strike force, with or without Ulloa.

O’Grady should be regarded more as a belated substitute for Ashley Barnes, who was never adequately replaced in January after moving to Burnley.

Sami Hyypia is expected to have O’Grady, Craig Mackail-Smith and at least one, if not two, more new front men at his disposal, using funds from Ulloa’s £8 million plus sale to the Foxes.

Youngster Shamir Fenelon, who missed Thursday night’s 3-1 friendly defeat against Real Betis in Spain with a slight knock, could either be back-up or loaned out again to gain more first team experience.

O’Grady had a prosperous 18 months in the Championship with Barnsley, despite their relegation last season.

He scored six goals in 16 games in the latter part of the 2012-13 campaign on loan from Sheffield Wednesday.

Last season, after his move from Hillsborough became permanent for a fee of about £300,000, O’Grady scored a respectable 15 goals in 40 league outings in a struggling side.

O’Grady’s grafting, robust style made him popular with the Barnsley supporters.

He primarily operates with his back to goal, making life awkward for defenders with his upper body strength.

He is more of a link-up striker than an out-and-out goalscorer and also at Barnsley often drifted into wide areas.

In other words, he has similar qualities to Barnes, whose contribution was never quite appreciated as much as O’Grady has been in working class South Yorkshire.

Moving to Albion represents a geographical departure for the 28-year-old father of three young children. So far his entire career has been spent exclusively in the North or East Midlands.

That almost changed last month, when Barnsley also agreed a £500,000 fee with Charlton. The deal collapsed because O’Grady could not agree personal terms.

Barnsley were keen to get him off their wage bill after going down. A switch south to Albion was more appealing for O’Grady than Charlton, who nearly ended up with the Tykes in League One.

Barnsley’s neighbours, Sheffield United, agreed a fee as well for O’Grady but personal terms were again a stumbling block. In any case, Barnsley were far less inclined to sell to their local League One rivals.

O’Grady is heading for the Amex instead as Albion set about the task of assembling a strike force no longer spearheaded by the talismanic Ulloa.

Likewise, I'm sure that when CP signed Murray a player who spent all his career in league 1 and 2 was signed for free, CP fans too were underwhelmed. Maybe Chris can do for Albion what Murray did for CP.

As long as he stays away from the Marina he'll do OK

Great signing for us, absolutely spot on what we need in the striking dept. He will make a huge difference to our ability to hold play up and get in behind defences. I will say it again CMS is going to be massive for us this coming season. Goalie, LB and a centre back and x1 CF would be the icing on the cake. Bloom= legend

The more I think about this signing, the more I like it.

COG is a beast of a man and not easily bundled off the ball. I cant remember the last time we had such a player in our ranks... For me its nice to mix up the pretty stuff with a bit of rough and tumble occasionally.
I think that with both COG and Toko added to the squad, we now have a little bite.

Crouch spends as much time on the floor flapping his arms and shouting at the ref as Ulloa did, so would be a straight swap!
Cant disagree over Butland tho, but with Stoke not decided over Begovic, can we afford to wait?

A good move buying O'Grady. He was at school with my kids , near Loughborough. They told me what a great player he was as youngster, and I've followed his career since then. Saw hiim put in a great performance against us at Rochdale...fans loved him there. Really popular with his Yorkshire clubs' fans. A hardworker..ideal for Championship. .with moments of flair in the box that should help him to be taken on by Albion faithful!

Yep, a hard worker who won't leave anything on the pitch after 90 minutes, the replacement for Barnes that is much needed. Think we need a real poacher to take advantage of his and CMS's endeavour. A marquee signing or two will really get us buzzing and perhaps a late season ticket stampede :-)

I think it would be a shame if the young lad Fenelon doesn't get game time , he needs to be training with the squad and getting the feel for being involved as opposed to more time away on loan. I hope that his pre-season will be enough to at least get him on the bench or Cup games ... As for OGrady , time will tell .. trouble is , he sounds exactly the same style of player as CMS. If he scores 25 goals and gives 100% he will have proved to be a steal at £500k !

With Ulloa up front and CMS out for the season Barnes became our number two striker, had CMS not been out, it is very likely that Barnes would have been our third option.
O'Grady has replaced Barnes, Barnes a player that not many would consider a 20 goal a season striker, so with that in mind I odn't expect 20 goals a season from O'Grady.
In the absense of CMS Barnes got pretty regular match time, more than he might have got had CMS been available for selection, O'Grady will have to fight for his place, especially if we bring in a more like for like replacement for Leo, and I am sure we will.
I have been thinking that Fenelon could fill the fourth striker role, and he might, but if Sami brings in two strikers, then as the article suggests, Fenelon might well go out on loan, that said, if we play with two strikers, having a fifth option might be a good insurance policy.

Why dont you just say I dont rate O'Grady.

Didnt he score 15 goals in a team that got relegated.

In theory he is now playing for a better team so why cant he go near 20 goals?

You seem to have all the answers.

I can't see why COG can't be as prolific as LU. I know he's more of a replacement for AB but AB scored quite a few and missed quite a few. If COG can be more accurate in front of goal then I think we could be in for an interesting season.
Anyway, before I've even seen him wear the stripes, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, in the hope we've got a good'un here. Glass half full.

Hi Bro, yep he could be very useful but if Hyypia brings in a striker of note, then it will come down to whether CMS or O'Grady gets to start with, 'a- n- other.'
O'Grady using his upper body strength to hold up the ball might allow CMS to use his pace, but that could mean that we play with three strikers, and I am not sure that that would happen. CMS gets a new role as attacking midfielder? This would allow O'Grady and a new front man and CMS to start.

Hi bruv, I think we would have 2 strikers on the field and 1 on the bench to give a change should it be needed plus, with the injuries we seem to sustain we need 4 front line strikers available. I'm glad Leo issue is finally resolved, at least any new striker knows what the situation will be.

It seems strange, and yet amazing, that we find ourselves debating whether we got 7 or 8 million for a player, who just a few years ago would have thought that this day would come, and come before we even get to the top flight.

It seems to me that the purchases of Toko, Hughes and O'Grady, are all deals that came about with money from this season's transfer budget, and if we get Stockdale for 1M, that would be another.

The money gained from the sale of Ulloa will allow us to proceed with with our transfer business but I would be surprised if we had to use too much of it at this time. Replacing Leo might set us back 2 or 3 million but that could be all we use from what we got for him, this side of January that is. We should still have money available from this season's budget to bring players in and having a nice chunk of change in the bank could be very useful for the mid-season window.

I appriciate that my thinking might not go down too well with some on here, but it's just I see it.

I am not convinced that the exit door is firmly shut at the Amex. If Sami signs another center back and brings in a left back, Maksi could find himself wondering where his chances lie. Re-signing Ward would give us two left backs, sign another center back and we will have four, where would that leave Maksi?

Still fancy Chris Eagles as the midfielder for both the killer ball and to add some general creativity, perhaps with eagles COG could be a 20-25 a season player.
He's still a free agent and only 29 so he's still good for a two year deal, any thoughts?

Sorry Beale but had to take you up on the spellings! Begovic is right but should be "whether" not "weather". "To high" should be "too high" .

From a lot of the reaction here, I don't believe you saw how much run around CoG gave GG when we played Rochdale and last season at Barnsley. If you saw those games you would believe he was one of the best strikers in the division. Not sure though why Wednesday let him go.

Hi Tug.
You could be right about Stockdale and I hope you are, a decent keeper and another one of our vacancies would be filled.

I am watching Spurs play Seattle as I type, don't know if you guys are getting this match, it's a good un.

Quite like the idea of getting Becchio but with other clubs also after him, we could end up in a bidding war, and that might not work for us. I also think that Becchio will want decent wages and with others after him he could demand quite a large pay package, again that might not work for us.

The Stockdale deal looks like being one we can pull off, and that one could go thru real quick.

I am somewhat surprised that we haven't read about other clubs being interested in Ward. If he is on 13K, and if that is putting off other clubs, then just maybe he will lower his demands and we can get the deal done.

Lingard going on the USA trip, after it being said that he wouldn't be, is a tad odd, I had hoped we could get him for a season. Maybe Gaal is just checking him out so as to decide who best to loan him to.

Will we get two keepers in and loan out Walton, probably not.

Being 8 hours behind you guys I thought there might be some transfer news to consider, tad disappointed that we don't even have a rumor to chew over.

Thinking on the Ulloa sale, and those that say that our selling him suggests a lack of ambition by the club, look at what is happening at Southampton and the gems they have lost to big money bids. If a prem club can't hold on to their gems how are we supposed to.

They have more players coming through, chambers is a class player ,
Sam Gallagher is going to be a 20 million pound centre forward, I would love the Albion to take him on loan, but they sold lambert knowing they have him.
I guess we will know if 7-8 million is a good deal in 12 months, if Leicester stay up because of Leo goals, and how we perform without him, I don't know the percentage , but Leo has probably scored 20% or more of all our goals ! And that includes him missing 13 games.
Can replace him or are we going for a quicker tempo?

I seem to have lost the, 'quote,' button and the thumbs up/down feature, is it the same for you guys?

Yes Mark the Saints do have some exciting youth, and just maybe it will all work out for them, and they will have quite a large sum of money in the bank too.

We relied on Ulloa too much, I think we have from day one of his signing, I am not so much worried about losing his scoring prowess, we can sign a replacement, but he was also very good when defending set pieces, can Becchio match that, if we go for him that is.

What's your thinking on our left back position, do you think we need one?
Do you thimk Lingard will go out on loan, or does Gaal including him in their USA trip suggest otherwise?
Do you think Stockdale would be a good fit for us?
Do you think JFC will feature much this season, Stephens, Crofts and Kemmy will be available for selection?

I hope lingard does not come here on a guaranteed starting place, that is madness and one of the reasons OG left, left back is a must , we could start season with chickson , if he is not good enough get rid ,
Jfc will get some subs time, but if we do sign a creative player, not sure where jfc will get playing time,
March again has yet to stamp a position in the side, that's not lack of ability, but he lacks delivery from the wings,
Ince I think will struggle if toko is up to it, he by all accounts has pace..
And I think that's where we are going, all out pace in attack.
However we need goals and more goals, your right

"Guaranteed starting place" in respect of Lingard" I've often seen that on this site, but never seen an actual statement verifying it to be true. Is it, or was it a another rumour/Chinese Whisper that became a fact? I would think very unusual if true and ridiculous, although I quite liked his performance at Albion.

I can't see any player coming to us on loan with a, 'he must play,' clause.
It is possible that Lingard did, and I only say that because other loanees came to us, prior to Lingard, and really didn't get a look in. Untited, seeing what happened to others, and given the low number of matches left in the season, might well have required him to play.

It would seem that Hyypia wants us to play at a higher tempo, I just hope that the first touch skills of our lads can handle that. 48 passes to move 5 yards forward doesn't require top level first touch skills, the ball is never travelling that fast to need them.

Being the optimist that I am I have faith that the club will bring in the players we need, I don't really have any worries on that point, but I do wonder if Buckley will hold up for a season. Interestingly Orlandi was released and Buckers wasn't, so maybe the medics gave him the ok where as they didn't Orladi.

MBTS ,I think Solly will definitely play a more central role this season ,unless he`s been practising his crosses , as for Rohan were very lucky ,he has played as a CD before and may do again with Sami ,but I reckon he could play almost anywhere on the pitch ,certainly defence ,we know he is a good holding MF ,and at a pinch I would play him as hold up player immediately behind 2 strikers if the game needed it .
I`m not sure Chicksen is reliable enough to hold down such an important role as LB just yet ,saw him play a couple of times on the box for Yeovil ,and he was no SW ,or WB , that's been a big role for us last couple of seasons .
I`d take Lingard back straight away ,Sami would play him where it would hurt the opposition ,not like OG did out of position ,but like you say not on a must play deal ,with Crofts and Stephens we`d have an impressive MF .
I can still see Ward returning ,and I`ve got a feeling Stockdale will be our new No1 keeper ,but you don't hear any real news on a Sunday ,so all spec . UTA

There is no evidence to suggest that there were appearance conditions attached to Lingard's loan, Dave from Bexhill, and I don't think that he was keeping anyone better out of the side.
If there was a must-play clause, there certainly won't be one if he returns to play for Sami.

I think your point about first-touch skills in a higher tempo style would apply equally to how games were played last season, Vegas. Whether you pass the ball 48 times in your own half or not, you've still got to get it forward quickly and accurately if you want to trouble the opposing defense.
I share your optimism that the right players will be brought in, and early signs are encouraging.

As things stand at the moment, I'm sure OGrady has been purchased to lead the line. We certainly need someone with the strength to hold things up and bring the likes of CMS into play and to provide a target for our wide men. For me CMS didn't really pose the threat he had previously done before his injury and I do feel he has to prove himself capable of being a threat at this level. I'd love to see an in-form Buckley back in the frame, but I'd also like to see March and Ince continue their development. I personally felt March looked far more effective wide than in the centre and I can see him vying with Buckley for the wide berth. How we then accommodate Crofts, Toko, Stephens, JFC, Agustein & Lua Lua into the equation as well very much depends on Sami's chosen tactical approach.
Given that we have also been promised additional signings before start of the season, it really gives us a competitive squad so we should look forward with optimism.
I've just noticed that ex seagull Ashley Barnes has knocked in 2 goals in 9 minutes in Burnley's first pre-season friendly. He'sobviously responding to the recent signings Dyche has just made.
Let's hope our players respond in the same way !!

Last season could be described as anti-football. If season ticket sales are down, it's a fair bet that they would be down considerably more if we were faced with another season of Garcia's version of the game.
The problem with criticising Oscar's methods is that he somehow steered us into a play-off place, and that is difficult to argue with. But the way he went about it is not compatible with what most people want to see when they pay to go to a football match.
There seems to be a consensus that a priority for Sami's team will be to score goals, as a way of winning games. For anyone who has only watched a Garcia team play, that isn't as strange as it sounds. Successful sides have always done it.
Playing not to lose will not fill a football stadium, and it will not get you promoted. I think that as much as anything, Sami has been appointed to provide the kind of football that people will pay their hard-earned money to go and watch.

Possession without a purpose is a waste of possession. Oyr style of play under Gracia was nothing more than a continuation of Poyet's style, and Poyet was trying to do a Barca, but Barca always had a purpose.

Bums on seats will continue if wins are notched up, and wins come about thru goals. Better to gain 6 points from 12 rather than 4 from unbeaten possession draws.

Orlandi, like Buckers has talent, but we released him, why?
Ha , we turned down 1.5 million in January from palace, we should have ripped there arm off for that!
based on last years fitness woes I tend to agree, but hind sight is a wonderful thing, and there was around 4 months of the season still to go.
What has changed in 6 months? There doesn't appear to be anyone interested in taking a chance on acquiring Will's services this Window.
Maybe other clubs are taking the advice that I offered to B&HA on this forum a while back.
That was to take a look at Wikipedia before splashing out large amounts of money on new players.

Our style of play must change that's obvious to us all , I have always liked the type of style that Peterborough used a couple of seasons ago ,they scored for fun and on occasion let a few in ,but there fans must of enjoyed every minute .
I like sides that when 1-0 up or 7-0 up keep playing exactly the same way ,not as we did last year and defend as soon as we scored , Liverpool play that way as well ,so I hope we will under Sami ,and rack up the plus column !. UTA

The great sides never change , united under fergi would keep scoring, Germany in the World Cup, it's about tempo, and pace, very little point in trying to turn it on and off during a game ...
As those that parted cash and watched 15 games of complete nonsense last year, I want pace with ball moving quickly.

It's not just a rumour without evidence, but to claim it's one of the reasons OG left... well, that's just one rumour predicated on another.

I'm only interested in his last club, where he scored goals at this level, and was a fans' favourite.

Is this it?

Leeds United and Brighton and Hove Albion are keeping tabs on Liverpool’s 18-year-old winger Jordan Ibe, according to FLW sources.
Jordan Ibe is a target for Leeds and Brighton
Ibe spent the end of last season on loan at Lee Clark’s Birmingham City, where he amassed 11 appearances scoring one goal.
Dave Hockaday’s Leeds and Sami Hypia’s Brighton are eager to bolster their squad before the start of the new season, and are targeting Ibe as a potential loan target to add an element of pace to their respective midfield lines.
The 18-year-old started his career at London club Chartlon Athletic, before moving to Wycombe Wanderers in 2011, the winger then moved to Liverpool in 2012.
The highly-rated youngster is keen to emulate Liverpool star Raheem Sterling, and Ibe told the Liverpool Echo:
Raheem is only a year older than me so I need to follow in his footsteps, and watch all of the other attacking players. He’s done well and scored a lot of goals,” Ibe said.
“He’s working hard all the time in training and impressing the manager. Because he’s young, players are helping him, so hopefully they can do the same for me.

Season before last, McCormack scored 5 in 32 League appearances for Leeds.
O'Grady scored 10 in 37 appearances the same season for Wednesday, and Barnsley.They are virtually the same age, so their value this time last year would presumably be the same.
McCormack saw his value soar after 28 in the League last season, While O'Grady found the net 15 times, which was a decent haul, all things considered.
The question that all this leads up to is who has got the better deal, Fulham or B&HA?
Is McCormack worth £10m more than Ogrady?

Very well said! COG appears to be quite a bargain, all things considered - but your argument, no matter how sound it may be, will not placate the negative soothsayers, trolls and doom-mongers that appear to manifest on this site. Give the guy a break, wish him well, and let's look forward to him bagging a bagful of goals for us next season.
