Except the majority of Leeds fans.

Although I & quite a few of my pals gave the Arsenal game a miss.

I totally understand why anyone would not want to venture to a footy ground at the mo. I don't think we should be slagging off Brighton and West Ham supporters for being sensible (in my humble opinion ). You said yourself that you and some of your Leeds pals gave the Arsenal game a miss 64. What's the difference between that and Brighton and Wham fans not going to a game? Each to their own eh? :)

Apologies Swannie, I agree you are correct.

You deserve a reply as you are one of the nicer people on MOT.

Good team Brighton. If they had a regular goalscorer who could get 20-odd goals per season they'd be close to making the top six.

Yeah, I was very pleased to see Maupay on the bench because that fucker always scores against us.
They are a decent side though, Potter is a good manager.

They are a good side, Harry all down to a good coach backed-up with some decent recruitment from their management.

Didn’t we once save them from going under when Wilko took Beeney off them?

I was really hoping we could get Potter to come here. No chance now.

The Seagulls signed an excellent LB last summer.

Brighton doing everything they can to keep there best players.

Weird behaviour :duno:

Why isn't Tony Bloom doing an interview with Forbes telling everyone they are for sale like Radz did . . . .

Presumably because Tony Bloom does not have the mentality of a seven year old... :duno: :roll:

Well run club and Bloom not shy at backing them, hasn't he bankrolled them to the tune of over £400M+ over the last 10 years? If he ever calls in the loans (£330M is the estimate), they would be well and truly f**ked. But they do seem to punch above their weight, given they are a small club with very limited, if any, global appeal. And I do rate Potter, fine manager.

Boring Brighton only drew 0-0 at home to some Belgain team I've never heard of :duno:

The seagulls will also be in our min-league hopefully.
