Brighton V Newcastle

Recommended Posts

Hopefully snaps us into gear. Bridge has surprisingly looked very dynamic for them... Maybe testament to Obertans defensive contributions.

That will be asked for 14 years.

 

Ha. Surely not. Shola has been shit for years and his little brother is a skinnier, dopier more clumsy version. Sammy is mastering the family stroll well

It's tricky because you have a strong chance of meeting a better team before the final so winning the thing is a long shot. Since the odds of winning it are long, the expected benefits of beating Brighton is just extra games. This is why every single top flight team does the same to a greater or lesser extent. As teams progress, they put out stronger sides as the expected returns increase. We also have a negative return which is the increased probability of being relegated. All in all, it's perfectly logical and rational to approach the game this way which is little compensation to those desperate to see us end our trophy drought.

No point getting into it. I understand your view just don't agree with it. Players can get injured at anytime.

 

We could get through this and avoid the drop. Into doesn't have to be one or the other.

Good interchange between Santon and Obertan but ultimately the Frenchman wasted it.

SAmeoi off, Marveaux on. I want to see Anita further up the pitch too.

 

This is fucking shite like.

 

I would have Ferguson on for Sameobi and Marveaux for Abeid. Has to be done now not after 70 minutes.

Agreed!, Pretty sure we would ALL love to see us win an FA cup, but it ISNT gonna be this year is it? Best chance of winning an FA cup in the next 5 years is to ensure we remain in the Premier League, thats an absolute cast-iron fact to me. The TV money increase, added to the fact that we'd lose pretty much every decent player we have if we went down, means (to me anyway) that this tie (and this seasons cup,) pales into insignificance against the rest of the league games.

We're absolutely knackered. Too many heavy touches and laboured passing. Not surprised we're a goal down given everyone looks like they're running through treacle.

 

Abeid ia looking like a league 2 player, nothing about his game whatsoever.

 

Williamson costs us defensively time and time again. He shouldn't be anywhere near the first team, he's an utter liability and has let them in several times so far. Thankfully it was only Al-Ebd he didn't track otherwise that was a good shot at 2-0 and game over.

Shola looks uninterested and Sammy is seriously struggling. Abeid and bigi seem to be doing ok. Obertan does not look fit. COMPLETE SHAMBLES
