Speaking with a guy who’s son is in the Brighton academy same class as BennWhite said he is an exceptional prospect in the John Stones mould (Mmmm)

Having said that no Brighton fan was a fan of Tommy Elphick, huge glee when they got the money they did for him (Brighton awash with centre halves) I actually played against Tommy Elphick and Lewis Dunks father in my semi pro days (animals both of em) that being said the guy said Nathan Jones (Brighton coach) then Luton now Stoke Manager said Ben White was best prospect at entire club, so be glad to get him if it comes off MOT.

Useful info Class, thanks.

My friend played with Ben White when he was on loan at Newport County and I know it was league 2 but he said he was class and really good on the ball but he is quite slight.

Well that was a roller coaster, is what it is and cannot truly say I’m shocked in modern football. Think it was a culmination of other Swansea players on Premier league money being shipped of their wage bill, coupled with their PR disaster about signing up for season tickets left them in fear of their fans voting with their feet.

Feel sorry for the young lad, but will still end up a multi millionaire so keeping perspective here. Agree it was still a great window for us especially keeper wise. Our greatest signing was in the summer and that’s Bub. With virtually the same squad he has us top of the league on merit, irrespective of who comes back and future injuries and suspensions nobody in this league has a better Manager Coach than we have right now. It may be bumpy but I absolutely believe HE will get us up this year. MOT.

A great window we are a 2 bit outfit.

What a rubbish comment



Class

I totally agree with you.


3.) 01 Feb 2019 09:42:00
Just a case of Swansea playing hardball. They held all the Aces and as soon as the Bony deal went thro all bets were off. Not very gentlemanly but that's business.


4.) 01 Feb 2019 09:58:52
Don’t mind being a 2 bit outfit, as long as we stay in the top two and get promoted! The most important bit of business we did this year is Bielsa and his crew! We spent serious money there and it’s being rewarded! We are bringing on under 23 players and showing that we are a club where good young players can shine, develop and get real opportunities. If that’s 2 bit, wonderful!


5.) 01 Feb 2019 15:21:23
We didn’t get the one player he asked for and was on his laptop.
Good post class.


6.) 01 Feb 2019 17:50:54
Thought the one player he really wanted (me too) was a goalie and he got him? Bielsa seemed at pains to say Orta brought him James and he approved of aortas choice, rather than it being Bielsa’s man? Don’t get the sense that Bielsa feels let down, which is always my worry because he might walk away then. Never quite got why winger was the priority. Thought No10 was most important to enable Hernandez to go back wide. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.


7.) 01 Feb 2019 20:38:34
He didn't ask for him Aus. Orta located james and bielsa didn't ask for him but didn't say no either.

Not sure I buy into all of the hype around First plays second. I certainly not buying the psychological aspect for the players of beating the pink letter writers. Yesterday’s win was of equal importance and you still get three for a win and one for a draw irrespective of who it is.

Am hoping for a Derby like performance as opposed to a Stoke one and to be honest based on form at the time I had expected the results to have been reversed.

Plus the hype is all driven by the media and sly sports. I firmly believe our support has the potential to make the difference irrespective of who we are playing which is why I’m predicting a tight win. MOT.

1.) 27 Jan 2019 15:00:33
Well said class, our fans can really make a difference. Pressure will definately be on us but Norwich won't want to drop points to us so will be a close game. I just hope our defence can be tight and we don't start by giving them a goal start. They are a more settled side from the team we played at their ground. The longer we stop them scoring the more frustrated they will be, I can see a few tough tackles going in. Needs a good fair ref!


2.) 27 Jan 2019 16:21:19
The good thing is that we should be back to a real defence, rather than makeshift. Hopefully KP moves in for Forshaw, and we regain the spine that got us mostly to where we are. I’m confident, as always!


3.) 27 Jan 2019 16:25:28
We need someone to take care of Pukki. If they're not up to it, could be sickening.


4.) 27 Jan 2019 18:41:49
Mezzer, you made me chuckle, a good fair ref? I haven't seen one at ER yet and I don't hold out much hope of us getting one this season.


5.) 27 Jan 2019 20:51:50
I'm always the optimist stafford, but understand what you are saying.


6.) 27 Jan 2019 22:03:38
Pukki played when we won 3-0 at their place, but then so did a fella named Saiz.

Make my transfer window if the latest Fraser Forster rumours were true!

Hearing Joe Hart from relatively good info.


 

 

01 Jan 2019 22:07:36
Unfortunately had to work today, self employed what can you do, Sas we lost so not a great day. But just checking we are still top yes?

And this team that desperately needs reinforcements (I would have a couple keeper and a scoring winger) is the same team minus a few injured player which will return to us yes? Phew thought we had been relegated.

Still the best season we’ve had for many many seasons and the second half of it will be just as exciting.

I actually think each year is different in the championship, for me to get promoted you must have a player to break 25 goals and another near 20. Bub said many times about our chances to goal ratio was far greater than anyone we played irrespective of whether it was the Blunts or Wigan. So I personally would put the majority of next years budgets on THAT striker someone like Maupay, the U23s can fill all the other gaps but goals of that level don’t come cheap and I don’t believe we have a 25goal striker at the club.

Personally praying Bub stays think this could be the beginning of a New Leeds era.

Classof92

1.) 18 May 2019 22:44:30
I hope he stays too Class, as long as the powers that be back him to the hilt to try and get promoted.


2.) 19 May 2019 09:41:14
How many of the current team do you guys think he will want to keep.


3.) 19 May 2019 09:58:15
Class

Yep, I am in agreement too. The missing ingredient is the goals. And again agree, goals don't come cheap.

I think Radz was thinking in the right way when he committed £7-£10m on Bamford. At the beginning of the season that was a hell of a lot for US to commit to one player. However, hopefully with hindsight, he can see that goals cost even more than he originally thought.

Personally I don't think Bamford is a bad player. I watched him on loan at other clubs and I definitely see a 10-15 goal per season striker there. Even more if you build a team around him like some of his previous clubs have done. But, for us, he can't be offered that luxury so I think a max of 15 goals next year

I love Roofe. He was bought for big money but for a couple of years was just used wherever there was an injury. But in all that time he never once complained. He just got on with improving his abilities and getting experience. This season I think he has shown how he has improved. In an injury hit season he has scored consistently and I would see him as a 20 goal a season striker now
But, he isn't getting any younger and I think he needs to challenge himself in the Premier league now. He doesn't have the luxury of giving us another year.

This doesn't make me despair as I can remember seasons when we did have 25 goal a season strikers who fed of very little service (Wood, McCormack) . Buy one of those fellas and, with the chances we produce, you would be looking at 40 goal a season men.


4.) 19 May 2019 10:46:31
And a couple of goalscoring midfielders would not go amiss.


 

 

15 May 2019 09:45:55
Curveball anyone? If Bub does retain Beradi tonight how about Bub picking a moment and chucking Pontus on up top, if not for a goal it would occupy them and make him available at set pieces?

Classof92

1.) 15 May 2019 18:40:21
A curveball of Bielsa quality, that one! Wouldn’t put it past him!

Proud of the boys today, wanted it more and it showed. Only half way but same effort again should be enough. MOT.

Lost more than any other team in the playoff four, also won more than any of them!

Got no words for today. but end with two crucial ones. Not Boro.

Wish we'd come 7th now. Save us from live televised national embarassment and poetic justice for the victor.

Interesting to see Brown and Bogusz on the bench! Even more interesting if they get a run out? Realise people are hurting, me also, just cannot accept we are not going up this year until it’s no longer possible.

To that end, if we lost both our last two games it would point to rubbish form but would not change the lottery of the playoffs where anyone can win including us.

Gotta keep reminding ourselves where we have come from and our future does look positive (well for me) and we are a long way away from being Bolton on all counts.

Other than Bolton probably would score in less than 46attempts! The one thing we do excel over anyone in the playoffs? Our magnificent supporters which just may be enough MOT.

Classof92

1.) 28 Apr 2019 12:02:39
Well said Class.


2.) 28 Apr 2019 12:14:41
We don’t need to win today don’t give to much away so we will be ready for the playoffs. 0-0 will be fine.

Brilliantly summed up Phil, spilt milk. Personally feel very sorry for young James, but pretty sure he will still enjoy a fantastic career and let’s hope it’s with us in the premiership.

As someone who has watched Brighton a good few times this year Chris (hold on for the draw) Houghton isn’t someone we need at all! We already have the best Manager we have ever had for many a year!

I was hoping to beat last season to be honest Bright, then we got Bub who I had never heard off then we didn’t recruit anything like enough (or so I imagined) so honestly I thought same as previously just missing playoffs.
