    That attempted pass with the outside of his foot reminded me of when I used to attempt things like that in my playing days. Only difference being I didn't get paid £10 grand a week

    Unbeaten in 5, 9 points from those 5.

    It will all end at the weekend though when Man U batter us, but it's been a nice little run.

    Palace game is huge. Bet they beat us the pricks.

    Retaliation tackles from Murray, after the blatant foul on him in the penalty area by Shawcross, that Moss didn't call, what gives with our Refs these days?

    I know Moss is shit but it's a bit harsh blaming him for that one.

    Best game of the season. Overall.

    A bit worried at half time, Very few teams score two goals at the Amex before half time. Normal service resumed in the second half.

    Still dropping valuable home points. This puts down to a projected 35 points which might not be enough to stay up.

    Atmosphere was a bit flat.

    In the first 20 minutes it looked both sides wanted to play deep and look for breakaways. Players on both sides rarely got dispossessed.

    I thought Brighton edged it but were more than slightly dominated in the air by Stoke.

    Concerned ? No chance 0 GD Very happy with that.

    Today was bad though and it happens. Still got a point despite not playing well.

    Just watched the game on TV. It looked better live,

    [​IMG]

    Three at the back for Stoke was worth a goal to Brighton.

    Teams that have scored two first half goals at the Amex: Middlesbrough, Arsenal, Derby, Spurs (Fr). Leeds U, Watford, Southampton (Fr) and now Stoke. = 9 teams

    But no team has scored four or more. This is the seventh season. 168 games so far. 161 competitive. 218 games since Albion last conceded four at home.

    Definitely two points thrown away with yet more crap defending. Both goals were a joke to concede.

    Whilst both Stoke goals were of the highest quality?

    Also Kurt Zouma celebrates goals like a 12 year old playing FIFA. Biblical levels of dickheadness

    That celebration was absolute nonsense. Labelling things as embarrassing is much overused these days but **** me THAT IS EMBARRASSING!

    Didn't see the game so can't comment on it. Having just seen the goals on YouTube however Sam wasn't wrong. They were piss poor goals to concede. I will let Brighton fans decide if our goals were piss poor to concede from your point of view (I suspect you might).

    They didn't show Zouma's celebration on the clip I watched. What did he do?

    Stoke’s first was route one which Chuppa-Chup Motorbike toe poked in, very Wimbledonesque! The second was just a scruffy goal from a corner with our defence napping having Just equalised.
    The celebration involved Zouma and possibly Mama do the hump Biriam Diouf? They stood opposite each other and did a little dance which involved simultaneously hopping from one leg to the other, they performed this long after the goal had been scored and the rest of their team mates had walked off. It was hideous.

    Seems a bit of an overreaction

    It was a quality ball from Shaquille O'Neali and a brilliant first touch from Chuppa-Chup to be fair. So good that Lewis Dunk fell on his arse.
