Seagulls wait for Solly's scan results after Buckley move

Winger Solly March has missed Albion's first two games

Winger Solly March has missed Albion's first two games

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

Albion are awaiting the results of a scan on Solly March’s back injury after completing the £2.5 million sale of Will Buckley to Sunderland.

March has missed the Seagulls’ first two matches of the season.

The England under-21 prospect was due to start last Saturday’s opening home defeat by Sheffield Wednesday and remained sidelined for Tuesday’s Capital One Cup win against Cheltenham at the Amex.

March is the natural stand-in for Buckley on the right side of the attack until Albion sign a replacement but his availability for tomorrow’s trip to Birmingham and Tuesday’s visit to Leeds depends on his fitness.

Buckley has signed a three-year deal at the Stadium of Light, where he links back up with his old boss Gus Poyet.

He could make his debut for the Black Cats at West Brom tomorrow.

Buckley is the fourth player to leave Albion for the Premier League this year. Midfielder Liam Bridcutt also made the switch to Sunderland in January, while Leo Ulloa and Matt Upson moved to Leicester.

Their departures have raised around £14 million in transfer fees, although Buckley’s previous club Watford are entitled to a £275,000 sell-on cut.

The 24-year-old scored 19 goals in 109 appearances for the Seagulls. Chairman Tony Bloom said: “Will gave us some great moments during his time with the club and I would like to thank him for his efforts in his time with us and wish him well for the future.”

Went for a lovely meal and a few beers last night with my dear wife and a couple of friends. We had a great time talking about all things positive about The ALBION. Went to bed full of optimism. Woke up early as usual and thought that I would post a few words of hope and happiness on this site. As soon as I saw the Ward report I went from cloud 9 to the depths of despair in a nanosecond.
Boy, do I hate this game I love at times

£14m worth of transfer fees that are able to keep a club with a new stadium and training facility within FFP. Look at how things have gradually changed at Arsenal... They needed time to ensure financial stability and are now able to splash out on players as well as having an excellent academy. Best of both worlds...Exciting times ahead for fans with patience and belief! UTA.

The difference is that Arsenal are an established Premiership club with huge income and well able to afford the new stadium - the only way we'll ever be able to do the same is by getting promoted - until then it'll be mend and make do, unless we bring in someone prepared to invest in the club.

Hi Mark, after yesterdays report that Ward was about to sign, I posted that this was a time of renewed optimism. I also said that we would all attend the next home game full of hope.
This latest news of our failure to sign a player that most of us considered a good acquisition has left me in the depths of despair.
I will not surrender my season ticket or any such token gesture of that nature, but finally I am at last beginning to feel that the Albion that we love so much is being mismanaged,
I was confident of a top six finish, but now to avoid relegation would leave me not totally happy, but relieved.
I hate myself for being so negative, but this latest news has left me totally gutted.

I appreciate that TB and Co like to play the long game and want to ensure his money is well spent however the events of recent days do seem to indicate that it is a high risk strategy.
Will Buckleys departure was fairly obvious and in truth his contribution lst season was limited by a persistant injury so this may have been an excellent piece of business.
However on Tuesday's showing we are short of a big man at the front and a playmaker in the middle. The Ward saga is so disappointing and will do nothing to increase gates/income I do hope we make those crucial signings now, as we cant yet rely on our talented youngsters. UTA

Football fans are a fickle bunch. How can you go from cloud 9 to the depths of despair because we failed to sign a left back ? Yes its disappointing and frustrating and the squad is very thin, but do you honestly think it's going to stay that way? OK so we may have 2 or 3 more loan players than was originally planned - so what?

If you want mismanaged clubs - look at Birmingham, Blackpool, Leeds, Portsmouth, Coventry .. and I could go on.

Like all true Albion fans I will be there to support the team come what may. That doesn't mean I accept everything the clubs says as gospel. We can all see things haven't gone smoothly for the last 18 months, and yes the club could be more open with us about the current situation. Some may criticise the Argus but they seem to do well at whipping up a high level of fan hysteria.

IMO it must be down to money--wages--other teams appear to be flouting the FFP rules without, seemingly, a care for the reprocutions. Damned if you do, damned if you don´t.Doubt if we will hear any more this week about transfers in--surely they would not be dealing with more than one player at a time??

Calm down and wait . Ward is a disappointment of course but not the only left back in the world. We were going to push the boat out for him re wages so it frees up monies for others. Judgment should be made come the end of the month not at half time.
But being 5 or 6 down at halftime isn't great is it.
No but it's great if you end up winning.
There is no win situation here,the season has started and many fans have lost faith in the management and no matter what.they do now we will never forget how we feel about their treatment of us, the fans., What ever our potition is in the table at the end of the season,the crowd on a wet and windy Tuesday night in January will give us all an idea of how far we have come since that first great night at the Amex.

What first great night was that ? Gillingham in the Capital One Cup ?

I can't believe that people can't see through this lot. Solly March's agent, Robert Codner (remember him fans?), has done a great job in arranging a move to Southampton for the boy. Great for Solly and great for Robert. Good luck to them both. Robert knows through the Grabban affair that things are a joke at our place and has probably told Solly exactly that.

People keep saying that 'football's changed' - that's not true. Football hasn't changed - its the people in football nowadays have changed! One thing has never changed - a club will NEVER improve their financial stability by selling their best players.

£14m worth of transfer fees that are able to keep a club with a new stadium and training facility within FFP. Look at how things have gradually changed at Arsenal... They needed time to ensure financial stability and are now able to splash out on players as well as having an excellent academy. Best of both worlds...Exciting times ahead for fans with patience and belief! UTA.
Only difference being premier league payments, champions league payments and an ability to attract top quality young players. Apart from that!!!
Quite contradictory... They have all of those available finances and monumental ticket prices and it still took them near a decade to get to where they are able to finance moves for players and retain talent. I am as frustrated as any to see top talent leave through the door, but you have to be realistic.

And even after everything that has gone on recently, you still beleive what football club spokespeeople say?!!
Expect you are somebody who believes the chairman when he says the manager has his full backing after it becomes known he is about to be sacked.
The Solly to Soton thing is gathering pace with reports now saying Saints have made an offer.

It seems to me that TB is walking around with a large monkey on his back. Namely The Amex which has premier league costs but championship income. He has looked at the books and realises he needs to cut back and raise money fast or else the club will be hit by FPP sanctions and risk going into administration.

Agree The Management have lost the plot but we can make a difference in supporting the club through thick and thin lets not give up and make sure Sammi doesn't lose the dressing room, better we finish 6th from bottom than be relegated, I hope Burke is moved aside and Barber is sacked before the start of next season which I believe will be our season IMO
