My concern is that ~£30K a week takes money out of the pot to sign a proper right winger.

And it's money we'll never recoup. So in two season's time we'll be in exactly the same place, needing more bodies but barely any money to do that with so we sign another ageing stopgap for a not insignificant chunk of our budget meaning less money to spend on improving the team and on and on it goes. Need to be thinking more long term.
Yeah, but in two season's time, if we are still in the Premier League, hopefully the revenue streams will be back to what they were pre covid. So needs must for the time being.

I don’t really get the negativity on this.

He’s a proven Premier League player who Dyche clearly rates and who can make an immediate contribution to our team, at what amounts to a very limited cost (when we’re clearly low on funds).

I’d far rather this than a youngster from the league below who wouldn’t get a game, or a loan like Chalobah who won’t get a game. Sensible business in our circumstances. With our squad problems this season is about staying up, he will help us do that.
Four years ago maybe but it adds to the over 30's crew and we have far too many - looks like a quick fix for Dyche for this season before he leaves next summer

On the Stephens story, it has come from Andy Naylor and he knows what’s going on at Brighton as well as anyone. I would take it as read virtually if he says it’s happening.
Good. Now let's do the same with Dawson. We can then think about getting in that right- footed winger, or even a right wing back. Maybe then sell Lowton.

A decent player who can play for us in the shorter term (heard he was injured but nothing serious?) and then when players start coming back can challenge for a first team place.

It's a decent bit of business, but we'll still need to sort the defence. It'll be step 1 of 3-4 steps needed.

Replacing Tarkowski with Dawson is an enormous downgrade. We’ve gone from mid table to relegation battling with just that move.

Stephens for that money would be a decent short term signing, we need players for the here and now, and if it's only a 2 year contract, he won't be a millstone round our neck, should we get relegated, and crucially we need a CM, Cork might not be seen this side of Xmas, and relying on Brownhill & Westy to play every game is asking a lot of them.

The club can't win with some of you, they bring in a smattering of youth players, and people moan they're not ready for the 1st team, then we're linked with a experienced PL midfielder who knows what's required at this level, and people still moan, who exactly do folks expect us to be signing?

Similar to Chris Wilder at Sheff United it's that approach which means you know what you are getting when signing players.

This is why we have no money in the club, signing over 30s with no sell on value for back up.

Selling Tark for the WH 35+5 only makes sense as a club wanting to move forward, if we have a gentleman's agreement in place for a solid replacement who SD believes is as good but for a lot less than 40. Especially if selling to a club on our level.

Or he wants to leave and SD feels it could affect team morale making him stay. Even then I would tell him he can leave but only if 50 mil is reached.

Dyche has what it takes to make Dawson a very decent centre half. The only question is, if Tarkowski goes, can he do it in time to not put us in a relegation battle.

I think that's a little unfair tbh, the middle ground of someone like a Josh Brownhill would seem the logical way forward for the club in terms of age and potential sell on value but I understand why we would go for Stephens at this point

If they are back to pre covid then everyone will cost more because of it. Only we'll have less money because we spent what little we had on players that only took money out of the club.

Sorry disagree. If he is 4th choice behind Cork, Westy and Josh, £30k a week for a 2 year deal with a relegation clause is fine. Provided we sign a proper right winger that can get us excited a bit etc.
Brighton fans say he's on 40-50k a week, he isn't going to take a cut.

Look in an ideal world, I'd like us to bring in another player of a similar age to Brownhill, but if we can pick up Stephens in for a nominal fee, then we'd be daft to pass that chance up, especially with our lack of numbers.

In terms of sell on value, we've already got McNeil, Pope, Tarks, Taylor, and possibly Brownhill that if we needed to recoup funds we could sell one or more of.

We also need that blend of youth and experience, and for the most part we've got the balance right, if we can get Stephens through the door, and possibly a young right winger (BOS, Eliasson) and we keep hold of Tarks, although the latter is looking unlikely, I'd hope we've got a back up plan in place should Tarky go,(Dawson) then it's not been a bad window, and we should have enough to keep our heads above water, with the added benefit of bringing the wage bill down to sustainable levels.

We have left it very late-hence the scrambling around. In view of the silence and total lack of transparency this is somewhat of a positive.Lets get him on board and move on to a centre half.I guess we will need two if Tarks goes

I think this is a good signing.

A genuine tackler in midfield. We haven’t had a player like this since Barton. At that price even if we only get 18 months out of him it is a top signing

Barton had plenty to say about us when he was at QPR...

It’s totally irrelevant. All that matters is how he conducts himself when he’s actually here.

I would doubt it’s at the expense of a right winger. Fact is we might not have got either despite needing both. In a perfect world we would sign a centre half, a wide player and a central midfield player just to replace Gibson, Lennon & Hendrick.

Strangely enough we turned to Hendrick when we failed to get Stephens who I think will be a useful addition. He’s played 99 Premier League games in the last three seasons which includes 93 starts.

We are needing numbers who can play. He played 33 times last season and Brighton stayed up. If he came with a minimal fee that would be good for us as assuming we had reserves of £40million no one can know what will be left after this Covid pandemic is over/or what has already been spent. SD may have a football brain but he is no epidemiologist to assess how long this curse will be with us before we get back to normal.

Kevin McDonald being allowed to leave Fulham on a free

Got to be worth a punt
At 32 shortly even he may be too old for us

One thing for sure, we will suffer in the Championship should we return!

If DS is only coming for a £750k fee that is almost a free transfer these days even for us

Signing Stephens so such a small fee could possibly allow us to go bigger on quaison

I think Stephens, if he signs, will be a popular acquisition and the fans will like him.
How about Harry Wilson from Liverpool on loan to solve the right wing berth. He ain’t going to get any action at Anfield. Decent local loan and a guarantee of first team football, at least for the time being.

I’m not against Stephens as a filler but all it’s doing is storing up exactly the same issue for future windows.
