It was a mistake, But everybody on the pitch last night we’re not clear of in most cases more than one mistake. In the climate that exists throughout football support, goal keepers are not allowed mistakes.
In all honesty if the rest of the defence had not gone to sleep, his mistake. Did not need to lead directly to being scored against.. in any case it was a prime example of the one nil syndrome, If you dont score two , one mistake from whoever can destroy an evening of dominating an opposition. I’m just glad he was there when Brighton, had real chances, not gifted to them , that is if you ignore the missed placed passes around the Brighton box , that ended two or three passes later with Gueita, having to make a save.

that's the goalie's curse - their mistakes almost always lead to goals. He is not immune from criticism

The build up and pressing is good to watch but we look absolutely blunt IMO. Too many passes and a lack of cutting edge. Eze can’t come back soon enough.

Attack and Goals are always the last to come. Brighton have found this - and appear to be coming out of it now. We will surely go through the same.
As ever, it's all about survival this year. We look more fluid and dangerous, but we must pick up wins when we can. This team is capable of much greater things than simply striving to survive, but we're not there yet. Relegation is still a real possibility which we must avoid at all costs.

PV is still rebuilding. The foundations have been laid, and are solid. New walls have been Put in place, but it's still the old ones providing the support. We need to remove them and ensure the whole place doesn't collapse.

This season was always going to about transition and would be high risk due to the number of personnel involved. I know early days but we seem to progressing nicely a couple of wins soon and we can look forward to a bright future.

The bottom line is that we have won one out of six in the League this season. In mitigation we have played difficult opposition but even Norwich at home wouldn't be an 'automatic' three points. The football we have played under Vieira is far more watchable than what has been served up in the last two seasons. Whether it will be as effective in saving us from relegation is yet to be seen. If we win nine more matches, we'll stay up. If we don't, we probably will not. Given that we average a point a game this season and that on current form Leicester is about as difficult as the mean we have faced this season, a point on Saturday is most likely. So...which nine teams will we beat?

Could be any of them, so unpredictable these days. Not many of us expected a win over Spurs for a start. One thing for sure - we'll beat Brighton next time!

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

At the start of this season I think I would have been happy with 15th place.

This was always going to be a season of transformation so we shouldn't expect anything.

We can pray we avoid relegation, we can hope we finish top 10.

Performances have been promising, new players are integrating well and some of the old guard have performed very well so overall its a definite thumbs up from me.

 


Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.

Big Mistake by Guaita

Big Mistake by Guéhi

Great finish by Maupay

= goal


Literally all four of those instances happened in a couple of seconds. f***ing annoying, but equally frustrating that if just one of them hadn't happened, we'd have won.


Still maintain we had a really great throw in on the half way line. Why did we even appeal for a free kick in the first place?

Added in a missing error! lesser of the all errors really, as Maupay was already through On goal so it'd be 1 on 1 regardless, but he allowed Maupay the opportunity of an 'easy' finish.

Quite how Guaita kicking the ball into the middle of the pitch is seen a big mistake is unclear. It wasn’t scuffed to their player on the edge of the area, it was in the middle of players from both sides. Our players didn’t react, theirs did.
I get why people are blaming Guaita, it makes them feel better having someone to blame, but the CBs were equally culpable if not more.

Sorry but that’s absolute nonsense. Keepers kick balls like that out every day, At every level of football. It went past the half way line, plenty of goal kicks or free kicks in your own area are far worse than that. Focusing on the kick out from VG is entirely missing the point of that goal.

Trossard, on the full volley, played a defense splitting perfect through ball, which took out the entire back line and was perfectly weighted for that little rat, who tucked it away.

He played a perfect through ball, on the volley. Sorry but you have to take your hat off to that.

Why scapegoat VG for that goal? Why not scapegoat the entire midfield for not getting to it before Trossard or the entire back line for being caught flat footed? Problem with scapegoating is it doesn’t really make sense when you examine it.

 


Trump lost. Badly. Hahahahahahaha.
