  1. We look capable of conceding pretty much any time any team gets into our half. Then flatter a few times going forward while not really creating anything. It’s a bit of a desperate mix that, unfortunately.
  2. As a few have said, he was competing with memories of Nilsson and Sterland and was never gonna come anywhere near either of them. The amount of floaty diagonal balls from around the half way line to opposition’s defenders or keeper used to drive me mad, though.
  3. We're in a similar position with the same points as Burnley were this time last year...
  4. Points wise we're 2 better off than Burnley were at this stage last year. Granted the top two currently have more points too, but if you look at Burnley's form into this time last year, it shows you how much can change. Newcastle without Shelvey for another 4 games could help with breaching the gap. This second half of the season is gonna be interesting. *edit: just seen this already been pointed out in another thread, but there you go...
  5. Hopefully we'll hammer 'em tonight and most of them can do their Superman change back into their real teams' shirts afterwards.
  6. Gonna be somewhat in the minority here tonight. Any Wednesdayites watching in Brighton anywhere? (I imagine this is gonna be a short thread).
  7. There's a major point that doesn't seem to have been mentioned yet regarding Brighton's supporters and their crowds in comparison to clubs like Wednesday, Derby, Forest (and even Dem Blavdes). I've lived here for 10 years, so I think I'm qualified to point out that a good 50% of the people who are at the AmEx on a weekly basis are also Man Utd/Arsenal/Chelsea/Liverpool "fans", who never gave a sh*t about The club until they got a shiny new ground and a sniff of some glory. There is genuine confusion and changing of subjects when they're asked who they'd support if the time came where their two clubs met in the Premier League. This seems totally alien to me. This does not apply to all their fans, I'd say there's a hardcore 8-10,000 that went through some terrible times at Withdean etc. and those people, as supporters, deserve a lot of respect for that. This could also, of course, all change in a generation if they continue to do well and new generations of supporters are born into just being Albion fans. Right now, though, it seems a bit plastic for a large section of the fan base.
  8. I seem to be listening to two blokes talking about Sean McAuley while there's a match going on...
  9. Modou, Modou Sougou. To tune of We Will Rock You. Anyone come up with that one yet? Took me ages to think of them lyrics.
  10. So, some of you are annoyed that the club has negotiated a good player down to £15kpw. Would you have preferred to pay him more?! Maybe, just maybe, that's the value they placed on him and it took a while to close the deal. At half a million saving a year from his alleged demands i'd say that's a good bit of business. It doesn't necessarily mean they won't pay someone else more if they think he's worth more. There's been a lot of panic stations going on over the last few weeks and every time things seem to have turned out alright. This could well be the case with ticket prices too. It might be time to for some to stop automatically assuming the worst. About everything. When you know all the facts and the outcome, it's understandable to be annoyed. Being annoyed at your own assumptions must be a constant downer. (I started posting this about 2 hours ago then went to do something else, so it's quite possible someone's already said all of this).
