    Brighton fan here. I assume you've signed him with a view to having a serviceable backup for Leno. He is still Australia's number 1 and has been good for us in the past but has really suffered a crisis of confidence leading to his replacement. I hope he gets his confidence back under Arteta and your goalkeeping coaches even if he doesn't get the opportunity to play.
  2. The Zaha to Arsenal rumours have started again I see. I get it. He's understandably worth £70m to Palace and maybe £35m - £40m to clubs like Arsenal, which makes the whole situation untenable for all parties until his contract runs out. For Brighton, the Lion of Judah - Percy Tau has arrived along with his fanatical social media fan base. It only took 2 1/2 years and Brexit from us signing him to actually getting him to play for us rather than being trapped in Belgium and playing glamorous Champions League football. There's no way he'll save us but it'll be
  3. It probably got lost in all the Disney announcements but on January 5 Nicholas Cage's History of Swear Words is coming to Netflix.
  4. I've watched a season and a half of Justified and I'd say it is quite good but it bothers me slightly that all the women are the same NRA Conservative woman fantasy (short summer dress, blonde, proficient with guns, like beer, church-y but not super religious). Other than deputy marshal thingy who is the racist lightning rod for the baddies so that the good cowboys can prove they aren't racist, all the women appear to be exactly the same. It's not bad but that element feels like it has been focussed grouped in to appeal to a certain segment of the domestic audience. Kind of like ho
  5. The early episodes of this season were really quite good but this week's seemingly 3 hour long Vulcan logic fight was a struggle. The only other thing I remember was Tilly's promotion when I was sure they were going to Harry Kim her for the entire series. Apparently, shouting about how smart you are in a passive aggressive manner, trumps the chain of command when it comes to promotion so I guess on those merits alone, the only characters in line for any change in rank are Tilly, Stammets and engineer woman-McCoy replacement.
  6. If Starfleet assigned me to the USS Teacup, I would probably resign my commission.
  7. One of my favourite bits of TOTDY outside of the electric car madness is dancing to the ten commandments.
  8. I didn't pay for the game but it felt like another case of "How have we failed to win that?" again. We have a fair amount of forwards but Maupay and Connolly seem to lack the cutting edge, Welbeck lacks match fitness and Zequiri was playing Swiss postmen last season.
  9. Look, you haven't seen 2016 Blackburn Rovers Shane Duffy when he scored 2 own goals and got a red card in the game against Cardiff. Celtic are lucky they don't have that Shane Duffy (yet). I'm beginning to see why Potter wouldn't let him near the first team unless our need was dire.
  10. Yes! We're playing Spurs with no strikers, 4 centre-backs and a goal keeper who was playing for Rochdale last season. Mourhino won't have planned for this! *90 minutes later* Tottenham 7 Brighton 0
  11. I followed suit and donated my PPV money to a food bank in line with some of the of fans of other PPV affected clubs. I have a feeling that paying £15 to watch Brighton West Brom will result in a 1-0 victory for the Baggies so whilst my stance is mostly ideological, I will admit to at least 15% of the decision being driven by superstition. There was a rumour that less than 1000 paid for West Brom v Burnley. Wonder how true that is.
  12. There was just an article in the Brighton Argus about him having a tough time impressing right now. I thought it was Internet hyperbole but apparently not.
  13. Yeah there was a sequence of 70s motel rooms something in S1 which was apparently all CG. I remember thinking at the time that it was way more impressive than whatever came out of a Marvel or Star Wars film because it felt real.
  14. They could have got around the tech stagnation thing by saying that ships are designed to last several hundred years as they are in the Warhammer universe.
  15. Shane Duffy Defence Force activate! I think there was a time when we had him in the Championship and our first season in the Prem, when he was partnered with Lewis Dunk and Hughton's cautious game planning that all those things came together worked elevating him somewhat. But without all of that yeah you have to maybe have to ask questions of his performances. Weird that between him, Goldson and Balogun, there's quite a selection of Brighton alumni up at Celtic and Rangers.
  16. Onto S5 and the shift in how stories individually are told is driving towards an ending which is probably the right thing to do but I don't want it to end. Just watched "Shennanigans" (S5 E7 I think) and I loved the idea of them both trying to act like grown ups culminating with Abbi upside down in a ventilation shaft and Ilana sporting an "Adult Lady" T-Shirt at the end. I don't know why those two things worked for me but they were both amazing.
  17. Six months later and it's dead It had to be a money laundering op or pyramid scheme.
  18. Well that was exhausting but I felt we at least deserved the point. Really need to work on the finishing though
  19. We've just signed Danny Welbeck. Not sure how I feel about that. We needed another striker but I can't see hime being more than a bench option and mentor to the kids. He's probably blown our claim to having the youngest squad in the division though.
  20. M23 derby day! I appreciate there are only 2 members in this thread who have an interest. I guess we know Zaha will score but other than that I don't know which way it'll go. Probably 1-1 with Maupay giving us an early lead which we squander to a set piece 3 minutes later. Trossard to hit the woodwork at least 3 times.
  21. Poland absolutely leathering Finland right now. A few days ago, I would have been less bothered but seeing as Brighton signed two of them on deadline day I thought it was worth paying attention. Grosicki seems to be having a mad one though.
  22. @p b - How do you rate Andy Zeqiri? I know Lausanne were in the Challenge league last year so you will have seen some of his work. I appreciate that Challenge league to Prem is a huge step up but I'm hoping for something other than just height. Everton were very very good yesterday, Pickford aside. And we were off the pace although still managed to score twice. God I hope we play Fulham before Scott Parker is sacked.
  23. Does the key to West Ham's success lie in Moyes managing every game over Microsoft Teams? After this weekend I'm not sure I understand the Premier League anymore.
