  1. Brightonian replied to the thread Michail Antonio.

    For every great attacking performance I've seen him lose them a game by not paying attention defensively. Often against us.

  2. Brightonian replied to the thread Chinese money.

    I think the short career of a footballer (and the risk, ever-present, that an injury could end it at any moment) is the biggest factor here. A career's worth of earnings at a good club in a European league will let you live like a rich man for...

  3. Brightonian replied to the thread Ander Herrera | 2016/17 Performances.

    It can only be a good sign that we have so many players at the moment who seem like they'd make good captains. Herrera, Pogba, Jones, Smalling and Blind are all good candidates in my opinion. For me Herrera's the pick of the bunch. Big character,...

  4. Brightonian replied to the thread Morgan Schneiderlin | Everton Player.

    He could be really great for Everton, but we won't have any regrets. He had good games here, but never looked that special in them, never showed that extra gear required to become a settled starting XI player for us. Good fee to, clear sign of a...

  5. Brightonian replied to the thread Chelsea submit new 60,000-seat stadium plans | planning permission granted.

    I bloody love it. No way to know what actually watching a game there will be like until they're playing in it, but in terms of the appearance and character from the outside, it's magnificent. Can't deny I'll be pretty jealous once it's built.

  6. Brightonian replied to the thread Henrikh Mkhitaryan | 2016/17 Performances.

    Yep. We're in the sort of form where you stick to your own game plan and just put out the scariest team you can. Right now that means Miki and Martial.

  7. Brightonian replied to the thread RAWK Goes Into Meltdown 2016-17 Edition.

    Pretty much any one of that run of games when Torres supposedly 'terrorised' Vidic (overstated, but still). They were consistently the underdogs then and somehow they kept beating us. That was the period where they really built their reputation...

  8. Brightonian replied to the thread Dimitri Payet | Bilic: He wants to go.

    Quite. It's a pretty shameful way to behave if you ask me. If you sign a contract, you do so in the knowledge that you can be held to it. Especially when that contract makes you rich beyond any possible merit or most people's wildest dreams. If...

    Heeeee's forever throwing wobbles

    Add up the fouls on Tadic that went unpunished today, and they might as well have stood in a circle around him kicking him to death. Not to mention the mystifying lack of a yellow for Lucas' unabashedly body-checking Romeu after getting rinsed.

  11. Brightonian replied to the thread Manchester United vs Liverpool.

    I find whichever team is in worse form does better in this derby. I'd be more confident if they'd been having an easy ride of it recently, because clearly we have the quality to give them a proper game and that's when the team who've been...

  12. Brightonian replied to the thread Paul Pogba | 2016/17 Performances.

    Listen to the way the commentator says 'Pogba' every time the ball comes to him in space. With a sort of quiet contentment, like job satisfaction. If you're going to commentate on a football match, it's nice to do one that has Paul Pogba in it.

  13. Brightonian replied to the thread Man City (& Fleetwood Town) charged on breaking anti-doping rules.

    Agreed. But to start throwing around 'oh, this proves Pep was dosing his Barca players' as if this somehow vindicates that opinion is ridiculous.

  14. Brightonian replied to the thread EFL Cup Semi | So'ton vs Liverpool (2nd leg Jan 25).

    'If they can take this sort of performance on into the rest of the season...' Oh yeah, because they're really going to be producing gritty, everything-on-the-line heroism like this against Sunderland and Middlesbrough in the league.
