Striker Wood has £2 million price tag

The Argus: Striker Wood has £2 million price tag Striker Wood has £2 million price tag

ALBION will have to pay around £2 million if they want to re-sign Chris Wood in January.

That is the reported asking price of Wood’s parent club West Brom for the prolific young Kiwi.

Wood has scored 11 goals in 19 games on loan to Millwall, the latest in Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Barnsley, following his double against Albion at The Amex last week.

The Seagulls face competition from Millwall, Leicester and Huddersfield if they decide to pursue Wood after his loan stint in the League One title campaign two seasons ago.

West Brom are expected to cash in on Wood at some stage in January but boss Steve Clarke is holding fire on his future for now.

Clarke said: “I’ve still got games to play before we get to January and the possibility of picking up injuries and suspensions. Chris is one of our players who is out on loan at the moment and doing fantastically well.

"He’s got a lot of clubs interested in him but at the moment he’s still an Albion player and if I need him to come back here next month and help us that’s what we’ll do. There is no guarantee of anything at this moment because the most important thing for me is West Bromwich Albion and I have to do whatss right for them.

"As and when a decision has to be made it will be made in our best interests."

I expect GP will try and snap him up for that fee. Buckley out to finance it.

If you sell Buckley, what's the point of buying Wood? I see Southampton have put in a laughable bid of £2 million for Buckers.. Lol.. Add another £4 million to that and Bloom might be tempted.

How come gusset didn't get him back on loan....... he doesn't know a good forward from a polished dungheap that's why.... and he could only score 8 goals in nearly a whole season in gusset's system when he was here and that was league 1...... I wouldn't give tuppence for him.... and that's still tuppence more than palace gave us for Murray..... In Gusset We Are Muppets ( IGWAM )

£2million is not expensive for Wood. As for Will, who I regard as the prize asset, he should not be sold for less than £6million.

CMS & WB NOT FOR SALE at any price at least not at this time, cannot understand why Gus or any other manager would sell there best assets especially if the said players are happy to go forward with the club, we need to add quality to the team to play along side the quality we have if we are to progress as a club. The 2 Mil for woods is reasonable price IMO in fact to get him would maybe worth another few quid.
Hope everyone enjoys the holiday and a good new year for all.

Gus is ready to spend big, 2 million for Wood doesn't reach my definition of, 'spending big.' I can see us making an offer but even if we got him I think we still need more.

If the philosophy is, 'we only buy better than those we sell,' what would we have to spend to replace Buckley with a better player. I think a fair price for Buckley is around 4 million, if an offer of 5 million came is I think that would be the, 'crazy money,' offer Gus would take. Would 5 million buy us a better replacement, I doubt it. A expensive end of season loan deal would replace Buckley and we think again at the end of the season depending on where we are.

A top quality, highly paid loanee would probably get bought, if he helped us get promoted.

I never see the point of selling good players of known quality to bring other players who may not fit in, I accept CW has been before so he is less of an unknown quality But if you were he would you want to drop down a division especially now Steve Clark is manager at WBA

At the beginning of the season, or there abouts, we didn't need Wood to come to us. We had CMS, Barnes, Hoskins, Buckley, Lua Lua, David, Vicente and Dobbie, all capable of scoring goals.

Gus doesn't have a crystal ball, he wouldn't know who would get injured and for how long or, who might lose his form and for how long. Would you have signed Wood at the beginning of the season?

Wood is not worth it. I really hope we don't waste that amount of money on him. He is having a 'lucky' season that's all and will probably revert to type once someone buys him. He didn't fit in with our type of play last time, so why should he now?

What fun at Blackburn, a Rovers fan said to me in the local Wetherspoons, we have NOT had a match called off here for as long as I can remember, we have some serious issues going on at present in the Board Room and also we haven't had that much rain either, so off we go down the Road to Accrington, why didn't we get our FREE PIE at the match, (in fact 2) half the price at the Amex.

I have to think that Bridge will either do one more year with us or be America bound.

Bridge said some time ago how much he was enjoying his time with us and that he might be interested in doing another stint.
If he were to go back to the prem it would probabaly be with one of the lower teams trying to ensure survival. The pressure would be back on him, pressure he dosen't have at our level.

I can understand certain clubs wanting him, I just don't think he will want them.

I personally think 2m for Wood is a bit on the high side but you cannot blame WBA for trying.It is absolutely crucial that we get the dealings right in Jan.
Come mid-March the stadium capacity reaches its limit of 30750 with the final 6 home league games able to facilitate this. If we are looking to offload Buckley,who in my opinion is one of the players who could make the step up to the premiership, then a lot of fans,myself included,would be very disappointed.Also we need a consistent line up and this isn't going to happen if we change the squad again with players having to get used to Gus's syle of play.
The only way we are going to increase the current levels of spectators is to be in contention throughout the season and if we make the play offs then there is a real possibility we could hit that capacity.TB and Gus know the possibilty of reaching the Premiership is viable this season and I trust they will enhance what we have and not release future Prem prospects.
Be interesed to hear others views on likelhood of reaching the new capacity. Happy Xmas to all.

TB please finance this deal somehow, without selling assets. wood is an excellent player, and WBA know his worth. however, i don't think he fits in their system. there are one or two fringe players who could possibly go, but we need to keep our main squad together. for the second half of the season we need to score more than we have done so far

I think you are right, Neville. If they sell Buckley for anythng under £5million (bearing in mind that Saha is quoted at £10 million) then many people will not buy season tickets and just choose the games they want to watch; particularly as a lot of Albion games get re-arranged.

See there are a number of championships clubs fighting it out to sign young Chris Woods,and we know most of the clubs names.Now ask yourselfs do you ever see or here about clubs fighting it out to sign our freeloaders.Which clubs in their right mind would waste money on players like Rodgers,Oatway Jr,Barker,Dunk,Barne
s,and only plays at contract time Hoskins.Even when we signed them there was know competition from other clubs like there is with Chris Wood,not that i think he is the long term anser.My friends not told me about any prem league clubs after him yet.What you should ask yourselfs is why give a player like Dobbie a three year deal at 30.Lets face it his slow and rubbish now,think how bad he will be at 33 my friends.

I would have thought Woods isn't really what Gus is looking for. £2m might be a fair price on his current form or even appear cheap compared to CMS but will he be a player capable of taking us into the Prem and also leading the line when we get there. Possibly he will, as he is only young and obviously improving. That's the gamble I guess. I thought Gus would be more likely looking at a proven Prem striker which was why I've been touting Ameobi all season, but his price may have gone up a tad after his latest performance. Still I guess we wont have long to wait now.

I think we should take a step back and look at this. Is Chris Woods a good player...? You bet. Does he fit in with GP's system...? Now there's a £2M question. Come to think of it, does CMS..? We can plough through the list of players who are available and those who may be tempted... but if they don't fit in with the GP system then we (TB actually!) will be throwing good money after bad... and I think that has already been done. Strange that WBA are happy to keep Woods out on loan - or get rid when they have Lulaku in on loan as cover. We really need 3 good results before the window opens to raise the profile of the club and keep the carrot dangling for prospective loanees who themselves may have longer term potential. Well, what do you think...

We are nearly half way thru the season and Gus has already said he needs to review the situation. IMO he also needs to review the way we play. if we are to progress. If we are to get that elusive striker--Woods or whoever--that striker needs to have the confidence to play to score loads of goals NOT to be shackled to Gus's current way of playing. I was priveleged to be at the Forest game (over from home in Spain)---terrible weather--and whilst we played well we do need someone who can really attack the goal. CMS huffed and puffed but really never looked like scoring. Good to see Lua Lua coming good, Buckley and Calderon good as was Bridcutt. Disappointed with Croft and Hammond. If we can move Dobbie on along with other non performers that would be good for the finances. Gus also needs to make a New Year resolution to come clean on the Vicente situation--again playing by Xmas!!!!---certainly NOT this Xmas, nor I suspect next either.
Rant over--have a good Xmas all and lets hope things are on the up in 2013.

This club is going places, with a brilliant chairman and management team. Whether Woods comes to BHA or not, frankly I trust the judgement of those currently running the club rather than you lot.

You absolute numskull. You don't know when your arguments have been discredited and crushed. In fact you don't know very much at all. Why not save yourself from further ridicule and keep silent? Try it, you might seem smarter!

I honestly wonder at some of those that post on here, surely they are not Brighton fans.

Any player that leaves during the january window will fetch a higher price than they would at the end of the season. If one or two of the prem clubs near the bottom want to buy from us in january they will have to pay our price or look elsewhere.

We do have maybe 4 or 5 stars, but they are stars to us and not much more than possible solutions to the lower prem clubs that need a fix.

If we can sell a player rated at 4 million for say 6 million, then I say do it and then buy a REAL 6 million rated player. If clubs want to spend crazy money then let them do it, we don't have to follow suit. Prices of prem players that we might buy don't go up in january, quality championship players prices do go up, and then come back down again at theend of the season.

I have no problem selling our stars if we bring in new ones at realistic prices.

I don't support Derby. Don't follow them at all. The ram in my nickname has nothing to do with football. I am a man so the ram part of my name is more to do with my character and nothing to do with Derby County.
Thanks.

I think you will find that all the "Anti-Albion posters can't spell basic words. They show how ignorant they are by their comments and their spelling. There are quite a few of them posting these days which goes to prove that more and more of them see the Seagulls as a real threat - hence their amateurish attempts to try and cause disruption.

IT'S TIME FOR THE ARGUS TO PROVIDE ACCESS CODES FOR GENUINE SUPPORTERS, AS THESE IDIOTS MUST NOT CONTINUE TO BE ALLOWED TO WASTE OUR TIME WITH THEIR CHILDISH ILLITERACY.

MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Well said, this site is a joke now and it stops real supporters posting on it. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all genuine Albion fans for which I am one, a lot of the postings come from idiots who don't even watch our team. Yorkshire Bill a loyal fan for 52 Years,West Stand Upper Season Ticket Holder and loyal till I die, and after reading some of the crap posted on here it won't be long. Come on you "Super Seagulls".

I agree totally with those who think that the trolls use several names ,to cause as much havoc as possible. On the other hand ,i dont want the Argus to seperate us by "codes". I`ve visited many other sites that have caused themselves a lot of trouble. For instance if you dont like a post or a poster ,simply have his posts removed,the result i have seen is that hardly anyone bothers with the site,apart to moan at being restricted.
The real fans on this site ARE big enough to see the idiots for what they are,and i dont want to be beaten by idiots!!. UTA
