Brightonian's Recent Activity

  1. Brightonian replied to the thread Should the League Cup be a British cup?.

    I do like the idea of experimenting with the League Cup to give it some kind of interest. There's something appealing about the possibility of drawing a Celtic or Rangers in the LC, especially as the occasional encounter with Celtic in the CL is...

  2. Brightonian replied to the thread Paul Pogba | 2017/18 Performances.

    Not going to read the article (see: Daily Mail) but the headline is a fair shout. We've all seen how absurdly gifted Pogba is. He has the potential to be an all-time great. A manager who can't get the best out of a player like that even with all...

  3. Brightonian replied to the thread Kyle Walker signs for City.

    He's been playing brilliantly for most of the season just like the rest of them, there's no denying it. But I still won't be convinced he's actually a brilliant player. He looks the same player he was for Spurs, to me - strong, rapid, potent in...

  4. Brightonian replied to the thread What would be the most worthy ‘double’ ?.

    In a way City's superiority and comfortable lead in the league this season hurts its prestige a little. There's no battle there, no struggle. They've already done the hard work and now it's just a slightly underwhelming stroll to the finish line...

  5. Brightonian replied to the thread Juan Mata | 2017/18 Performances.

    I reckon you'd always come up against the fact that he has no engine. Silva isn't exactly an athlete either, but he covers more ground than Mata and seems to tire less for it. Besides, our focus in terms of who can and can't perform where in a...

  6. Brightonian replied to the thread Sexual abuse of young players | Bennell gets 31 years (expected to serve 15).

    Did you read the nature of the things he was doing? He certainly wasn't trying to fight his impulses.

  7. Brightonian replied to the thread Sevilla vs Manchester United | CL R16 Build-up Thread.

    Hoping for this from Mourinho is a losing game. It just never materialises.

  8. Brightonian replied to the thread FA Cup 5th Round - 16th to 19th of Feb | City thwarted by Wigan wonder wall.

    Also having just tuned in I can't understand why there's any question over the red card. He's flying in, off the ground, studs up, out of control, catches the man. Potential leg breaker, absolute stonewall red. Ten years ago that's a stonewall...

    Honestly, Fabian fecking Delph and Fernandinho start for them... maybe let that one mellow for at least an entire season before telling us football has peaked.

    What lovely news to come home to after a late shift. :drool:

  11. Brightonian replied to the thread Huddersfield Town vs Manchester United.

    No, teams spotted that he was running our game and he was the one to target, not Pogba. Huddersfield are focussing their pressing on him, just like Spurs did. He's not doing too badly today given that he's being given nanoseconds to make...

    They represent that someone gave their iPad to their kid to play with.

  13. Brightonian replied to the thread VAR will be used in the FA cup game between Man Utd and Huddersfield.

    If this doesn't single-handedly kill this iteration of VAR then nothing will. What the feck are those wonky bloody lines? :lol:

    Did they get that from RAWK? What the actual feck?
