They retained Hughton, made key additions to their squad & look how they have progressed this season. The Seagulls were one of my tips to win the championship this time round.
I always judge a club by the manager. Benitez & Hughton had prem experience.
Hopefully Monk follows the same route as Chris Hughton who consolidated their position in his first season at Brighton with the knowledge he had something to work & build on for the 2016/17 season
Rome wasn't built in a day !
Huge difference between our squad and Brighton's when they narrowly failed to get promoted Leon.
Remember they got a huge 89 points last season, losing only 5 games throughout and only failed to go up automatically due to GD.
Therefore, they were in a much stronger position to ' go again ' this season only needing minor tweaks to the squad.
Whereas we are nowhere auto promotion, have lost 14 games and many of our key men are either only here on loan or subject to transfer speculation - our record of keeping hold of players is appalling.
So I dont think you can compare the Brighton of last year to LUFC right now at all I am afraid !
