    Tomer's definitely an upper Championship quality striker. Never let us down, even in the few games he got in the PL last season - a hugely dedicated pro. Good luck to him.

    Match Day Brighton v Bournemouth, Monday 1st January 12:30

    ^ Probably Jose's best game for us, despite failing to kill the game off with his 1-on-1. Hope he can kick on from that display. A pretty stressful watch though I'm guessing quite entertaining for the neutral. Had the chances to win comfortably but didn't take them and Bournemouth came back...

    Leeds v blades

    Sheffield Utd have some proper classy looking players in midfield. Both the wings backs are fun to watch, too.

    Match Day Brighton v Southampton, Sunday 29th October 13:30

    Yep, we’re spoiling you with all these south coast derbies. Really looking forward to Sunday. Hemed’s back from his ban now so we finally have more than one fit striker available. We’ve looked really strong at home so far this season and I’d expect us to be well up for this. That said, if...

    Well, that was fun.

    Match Day Brighton v Newcastle, Sunday 24th September 16:00

    Nope. Murray could be back some point soon, but the club are being typically vague/unspecific about return dates. Izzy Brown may be used up top at the Emirates on Sunday.

    Match Day Brighton v Newcastle, Sunday 24th September 16:00

    Felt like another huge win that, defended heroically at times. Home form's gonna be absolutely crucial to our chances of staying up so vital we keep picking up points in these types of games. Hemed's stepped up admirably these past few games which is just as well as we didn't even have a...

    Match Day Bournemouth v Brighton, Friday 15th September 20:00

    Agreed with your tactical analysis. I mean, we didn't exactly show much ambition in the first half, but I felt it had the makings of a perfectly executed away performance and when we got the goal I was convinced we'd go on and maybe even extend our lead as the Bournemouth heads dropped etc. -...

    Match Day Bournemouth v Brighton, Friday 15th September 20:00

    (Another) tough one to take, at Dean Court, that. Defended very well for large parts and broke semi-effectively a few times & caused them plenty of problems from set-pieces, but got punished after the introduction of Ibe and for two moments of slack marking/ball-watching. Unforgiving, this...

    Match Day Bournemouth v Brighton, Friday 15th September 20:00

    Yeah, it's literally just because we're both on the south coast that the media try to promote it as a derby. They might as well start trying to fabricate East coast and West coast derbies if they're doing it with this one! But yes, we have had a lot of decent tussles down the years. First I...

    Match Day Bournemouth v Brighton, Friday 15th September 20:00

    I'm fairly sure we've played the exact same system and save for a couple of changes, the exact same 11 in all four games. So by contrast, the players knowing their roles etc has never really been the issue with us - more just a lack of quality up against sides with way more expensively assembled...

    Match Day Bournemouth v Brighton, Friday 15th September 20:00

    Really looking forward to this one, especially off the back of Saturday's result. Would definitely take a point still, not sure I've ever seen us beat an Eddie Howe side.

    Pröpper unqualified for PL?

    Decent today. Very silky footballer. I expect he'll get overpowered at times but will definitely have his uses for us. His brace for the Netherlands last weekend showed how capable he is of popping up in the box to score, Lampard-style.

    Match Day Brighton v West Brom, Saturday 9th September 15:00

    So many positives today it's hard to know where to start. But first up I guess is.. GOALS. Seems we're capable of scoring some after all. Especially nice to have Hemed off the mark as we're gonna need him and Murray to lead the line as best they can in the absence any big striker signing (til...

    Match Day Leicester v Brighton, Saturday 19th August 15:00

    Knocky missed most of pre-season so is still playing catch up. Hopefully he'll be ready to start in our next game. Clearly we're gonna set up more defensively in this division compared to the Championship, goes without saying - but obviously Hughton needs to find a balance that can enable us to...

    Match Day Leicester v Brighton, Saturday 19th August 15:00

    Two tough fixtures to start the season with but it's clear we need a) the new signings to settle in and quick, and b) major reinforcements up front (desperately need some pace). Not getting too downbeat just yet as I wasn't expecting us to get anything from City or Leicester - however, the step...

    Preseason matches

    Beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 2-0 yesterday in Austria. Goals from Hemed and Murphy, first outings in the stripes for Gross and Suttner. Knockaert went off after 10 mins with a worrying looking injury though. :err:

    Confirmed Transfers Thread 17/18

    Stuart Taylor? Blimey, he's still knocking about? The new (yet very old) Richard Wright, then. We've signed another fella from Ingolstadt, left-back Markus Suttner for around £3m. Again, the stats look good (from an attacking pov - 4 goals, 5 assists in Bundesliga last season), but no idea how...

    Look after him please! A very good move on the face of it, hope to see him make a decent impact in the FL now after showing very promising signs last season. He's got all the tools/talent to make it at a pretty high level from what I've seen.
