On the subject of Brighton I was involved in a contretemps with a Brighton oaf who was cock-a-hoop after their home win against Arsenal.

I informed him that we were above them in the table (We are still clear of them - 9 pts), that we had finished above them the previous 2 seasons (They were 17th last season to our 12th, and 15th to our 11th the season before) and that their net spend this season and the previous two was around 195 Million whereas ours over that period was virtually nothing.

I think this highlights an interesting point Willo.

The grass always does seem to be greener, I remember taking great umbrage towards a colleague who supported West Ham when they brought in a few players a couple of seasons ago, doing the kind of transfer business I could only dream of for Palace, and it didn't work out so well evidently.

I have been worried about our playing personnel for a number of years now and like many despaired at the lack investment in it.

Yet, somehow, we seem to make it through each season. I was on cloud 9 after Bournemouth but quickly returned to 'Oh, we are doomed and look awful' on Monday night.

Loathed to admit it, but I always think of Brighton as having far superior style to ours and investing well in players but the weeds remain below us, well below in fact!

 


Here's to you the famous red and blue.....

We've all had a good moan (and rightly so - at least as far as the first half performance is concerned) and we've moaned again about:
1. the squad age
2. not giving the youngsters a chance
3. NO plan B
4. No investment
etc. etc.

Just be thankful we don't have this club's problems after all their spending etc.

Totally agree. I know Bloom has billions but can they sustain this level of investment? I am not sure and if not, will they improve?
Not sure their recruiting has been great but I would have liked Maupay
