Don't want them having too many, might keep them up!

Seriously though, I don't think Deano deserves to play in the 2nd division, even if Brighton can't have him, someone at the ass end of this division ought to be able to give him a home!

? Bit harsh that! Can't say anybody on here would be very surprised though. Good luck to him I say. Mr 100%, but just not quite good enough for CPFC since the arrival of Popo, Powell, Symons et al.

It was bound to happen, said yesterday to a weeds fan 'bet Deano turns up at your place.'

Which supports my theory that those who diss Deano diss Coppell.

I think Deano is only good enough for the second division unfortunately if not 3rd division maybe conference star though

Yes but you do make a bit of a specialism of criticising all of our players old and new, so I shouldn't think anyone'll take any notice :p

Deano would walk into every team in the 2nd, if only any of them could afford his wages.

Good luck to him. He'll have no problem getting into the Brighton team.

Deano da bomb don't diss da Coppell as Ali B said;)

On a serious note Brightons defence is so leaky a bit of experience is just what the doctor ordered. Heres to Deano keeping them up so we can do the 5-0 all over again next season.

Ok, so no transfer fee for the Seaweed to stump up ... but I doubt vey much they can afford his wages? Deano was one of the major earners on our payroll.

Class doen't come cheap ;)

Er, I suspect the irony of this situation is that we are effectively probably still paying them, since Austin will have had his contract (or the majority of it) paid up when it was terminated. Thus any payments he receives from Brighton are only likely to top up any shortfall, or may even be over and above, what he would have been paid for the remainder of his contract at Palace.

Anyway, good luck to him. He was an excellent tackler and, although his distribution left something to be desired, he always gave his all for Palace through thick and thin, and ultimately that's what we want from anyone wearing a red and blue shirt. I can forgive anyone for their lack of ability in any part of their game provided they do their best for their teammates and the club.

I thought this move might be on the cards pretty quickly. Good luck to him, although I hope he will be in division two with them by March.

As for his wages, he's got a healthy bank account as a result of being paid off, so he's not going to be overally fussed about playing for considerably less than he had at Palace. Let's face it - he's going to be pretty lucky to get a club, I don't think he's going to mess about regarding his wages.

See, that's what I thinks wrong with the game these days. A lot of fans share your view but I think it is the supporter version of the marketing men who want to squeeze everyone for every extra penny. Maybe it's misty eyed specs time, but I remember when we used to love lazy but skilful b astards and lazy but hard b astards.

You don't have to go too far back for this. Sasa Curcic and Andy Gray were both of that type. I would also include Andy Thorn, who didn't bother with moving too much, but could intimidate strikers out of things just by showing them his gums.

My all time great in this field would be Jan Molby, a player who could run a game without actually running at all. Maybe players should have speed limiters put on them, or have to pay a congestion charge if they enter midfield.

Physical laziness - IN
Mental laziness - OUT

On Nationwide site......

"Brighton's new boss Steve Coppell has killed rumours that the Seagulls are set to sign former Crystal Palace defender Dean Austin.

Reports had linked Austin, who was released by Palace last Friday after four years at the London club, with a reunion with his former boss.

Austin was one of the first names on the team sheet at Palace under Coppell, but the Brighton manager told the club's official website: "I haven't spoken to the player for weeks."

The 32-year-old player has a wealth of experience having starred in over 350 League games for Southend United, Spurs and Palace."

So, according to AlofB's logic, Coppell is now guilty of disrespecting himself.

A reasonably reliable source has let me know that Deano is trying to set up talks with Bastia. Some connection to do with Fullarton's old French translator who Deano met when Palace played out there.
