    Will be interesting to follow his progress as the jury’s very much out on his ability to cut it at Championship level. He’s always scored pots of goals below that though he also plays in an insanely attacking team. In his last season at this level I’m not sure he managed over a dozen, though I stand to be corrected.

    Haven’t we all heard his before – I hope it doesn’t work out for the worst ..”Chairman Tony Bloom has previously indicated that he is in a hurry to get Brighton up through the divisions, ….. With the cost of the construction of the stadium coming in the form of interest-free loans (which may well, in the long term, never be paid back and converted into capital instead, although that is a matter for the future), concerns over Brighton’s financial prognosis remain slight.

    I agree with Tim. He’s not well proven at this level. You also have to consider what effect Poyet’s comments about building the team around him will have on the rest of the squad.

    I’d also take issue with the line in the article:
    “the best team in the division by a comfortable distance.” I don’t call 3 points a comfortable distance. A single further loss or another win for Southampton and the Saints would have won the league on goal difference.
