In the words of Paul Barber: “We are working to get back in the black which would be for the first time in our history and give some money back to the owner.”

They've been in debt their entire history? Difficult to believe a club so reknowned for doing things the right way could have been in debt for its entire existence, but I'm not going to argue.

Anyway, I'm confident Brighton's fans would be very uncomfortable at the thought of the club going all out for big signings in the knowledge that this is their benefactor's first chance in years (and maybe last chance for years) to claw back a sizeable chunk of his investment.

How much of his own money are Barber and the fans going to let him have back?

Brighton fans - if Barber reneges on his promise and come the first game a bunch of unrecognisable, expensive, injury prone Spaniards who one may or may not have one time played in the Champions League run out, will you feel pangs of guilt and shame, or merely enthusiastically clack from beneath your sombreros?

They could perhaps clarify why they to seem to think their club is not in debt due to some sort of crack whore/pimp casual arrangement between BHAFC and Tony, and yet their former CEO OF THE YEAR Paul Barber seems to think hey ve been in debt since the dawn of time.

Does not at all sound like a club that prides itself on 'cutting its cloth accordingly'. Either that, or he's making the mistake that the club has only existed since 2009

I'll be intrigued to see their transfer strategy in the summer, given their commitment to staying within FFP.

I assume it'll mean a few free transfers and selling any decent players they have...

Well, having rearranged the rules with the FL to align FFP with their losses, they've apparently squeaked into the PL just in time, meaning that the inevitable fine they would have received due to their shit or bust policy this season has been narrowly avoided by promotion.

This is seemingly a source of great pride for many of their fans, despite it being a stick they've beaten the likes of cheating, tinpot Bournemouth with for years.

You cannot simply deflect by besmirching Crystal Palace. It is Brighton fans who, for years have looked down their noses at the rest of the football world, with their condescending air of self righteousness.

What has changed? How can they live with this hypocrisy and enjoy promotion with a clear conscience?

Serious question. Without bringing Palace into this, on NSC over the last couple of years Brighton fans have been abusing Bournemouth for getting promoted by not complying with FFP rules. Will they now apologise and admit they have don it in the same way.

No because we didn't break the rules. If we hadn't of got promoted this season, we would of, but because we will and it's over 3 years we won't actually break them.

The Lizard went all in and he won. If you or I had huge debts but had a deadline to pay down 10k on our mortgage by the end of year 3, some will argue it's crazy to then gamble on more borrowed money to do that. But if you win, you don't default and you didn't break any rules.

To be fair we have been in the PL for 4 seasons now so the money tots up, the first couple of seasons we didn't spend big at all. This season is the first when we have really spent a fair bit but even up until January our net spend was just under 5m I think because of the Bolasie and Gayle sales.

Let's face it, Palace have been in the Prem for 4 seasons and are not making money hand over first.

They are about breaking even or operating with a small lose due to wages and transfer dealings.

After 4 years all we have to show for it are some extra floodlights to blind people with, some nice grass, a TV gantry to obstruct the view of a many people and a few upgraded restaurants. We do however have a team on the field that can compete and hopefully survive for a 5th year. This is what it cost to maintain status in the Prem.

I don't think CPFC2010 have made one penny out of their investment. I'm sure one day they will get their money back with a nice interest... where will Brighton get the money to pay back their owner (or whatever Bloom is)?

You've done well thus far, you have a competitve team again and a manager who actually knows what he's doing (Please Alan come back) and you will be playing PL football next season.

I'm not sure if Bloom ever will get his money back? or if he intends to? the good thing is he owns the club, he's a passionate fan of the club and clearly he's loaded. He has decided of his own choice to put in his money and it will be his decision if he decides to call in his investment. That's a damn site better place to be than owned by banks or foreign speculators.

Brighton will probably make a profit in year one as some of the players will be kept and are on longer contracts? In year two the wages catch up. Brighton seem to have a squad that is coordinated as a team so spending may be more measured than some expect. As none of us have any idea what Mr Bloom's wealth is or whether ha has backers we cannot be sure of Brighton's plans.

I concur completely with your last sentence.

I suspect the only way Bloom will get the money back is unfortunately to sell up lock stock and barrel to one of those pesky foreign investors.

I don't think he will do this though, as he really does seem to be in this for the long haul, which is good for Brighton.

The club did say they had two lists depending on what happened this season, but that their recruitment strategy wouldn't change, they want to try and unearth better value players that will fit into the group rather than splashing the cash.

Nobody has the first clue how much Bloom is worth and his businesses seem to be a lot of smoke and mirrors. Clearly he's worth a lot more than the 50 million official a few years back. Had a convo with a palace m8 today and I reckon, Bloom as a successful and competitive individual is likely going to do everything possible to stay at the top table. He'll back Hughton but if its goes the way of Ollie or Pardew I dare say Hughton (as thoroughly decent a chap as he is) will end up the same way by Christmas. Having got there and the riches it brings I doubt there is much he wouldn't do to try and stay there such is the financial gulf.

Will it be enough? possibly not, but we'll only know in year. As a fan, I dont fear relegation, but I guess Bloom really would and will do everything to try and prevent it, much the same as Parrish has.

Bloom wont syphon off Prem money, I don't believe. Unless he gets Brighton to invest in his other ventures... Or takes a ridiculous salary. I'm sure he will sell a large controlling holding to some investors from Overseas. And retain a seat on the board for his family for more generations to come. But the debt will be difficult to manage in negotiations. Effectively who would want to pay him back and carry the burden of that debt? Will be interesting to see how it's played out.

We were in a good position with zero to negligible debt. It's easy to get carried away and blinded by the lights of the Prem. But sound investments would be players like Defoe & Crouch for the frontline (actually Ulloa would make more sense, and get one of Bournemouths forwards). An ageing star in defence. And some quality in midfield- as well as cover in the squad, or at least challenging for the 1st XI. I think our way has been decent, players out of favour with a point to prove have largely worked, and up and coming players too. The premiership player mentality though is so different to the Championship. It doesn't work all the time, some have already made it - they lack that desire that Brighton players got with.

But either way with everything they now have in place, even if they don't stay up, am pretty sure they wont see the likes of Hereford again. Of course, Pompey & Coventry would have felt similar.

Nothing's changed, they're just a deluded club. Somehow their promotion is more pure than our's, despite the fact they've been bankrolled on and off the pitch to the tune of 250m, whilst we had a team of loans and frees who supported a couple of outstanding academy products. They're the biggest bunch of deluded arseholes going, the Championship version of Arsenal. They'll be back there soon, no doubt.

Parish sold 7% of the club to Harris, Blitzer et al for much more than he paid for 25% of it. Browett, Long and Hosking sold a bigger chunk.

They've made plenty from their investment.

Surely Bwighton could just swap Knocky for Neymar, Suarez and Messi. Admittedly none of them are fit to tie the little wizzard's boots, but it would give them strength in depth without having to pay any money.

Tony Bwoom will have to wait, to cash in on surely his most successful gamble.

Looks like Tony's getting ready to rightfully pocket most of the cash. Meanwhile, I'm sure self righteous, smugly superior Brighton fans would be interested I this comment:

The club’s wage structure will shift, with Brighton now able to offer more competitive salaries but they are likely to follow the models implemented by Bournemouth and Burnley rather than offer huge contracts to new recruits.

It is a tough world and you have to be ruthless and show no sentiment. One thing Palace have learned is that if you have a Pound to spend you are better off focussing on getting the best manager first. It also seems most of them run out of steam after 18 months but that is another matter. The agents are maggots and use inexperienced clubs to move on their players for a payday. Brighton will need to make sure Mr Bloom's off field support team are up to scratch.

Wouldn't it have been easier for Bloom to have ensured BHAFC lived within its means and stayed in the lower leagues - rather than spending over a quarter of a billion pounds trying to get them into a false position like the PL, only to then pocket the PL cash, let them get relegated, and then apparently use parachute payments to get back up again?

At this rate, he'd get his money back in about 200 years time. This also buys into the philosophy seemingly only purported by Brighton that parachute payments guarantee promotion for the recipient, and no one less stands a chance.

Problem for promoted clubs is that you are usually last in line for players. Remember the trouble we had signing players. Only way around this is to throw lots of cash at it.

That's because you ain't listening. He is a fan who wants to see the club compete at the highest level possible that is what putting all that money into the club is all about. But if he gets the opportunity to get some of his money why shouldn't he take some back
Who could possibly argue with your logic.

Why he also live in a twice as expensive home, allow it to be repossessed, and then buy it back at auction for a fraction of the price?

Show me where he risked more money than he could afford to lose? Bong said in an interview a couple of months back that he knows things were going to be different if we failed to go up this season.

I think he has enough about him not to risk too much.
