Have a feeling this will be a very difficult game - they'll set up to frustrate us, wasting time etc. First goal will be crucial.

Brighton have not scored for 6 games.
No Propper or Knockeart.
Surely, if we score first we should have upper hand & win

Ticket offer - very short notice i know.

I've been given a free premium ticket for tonight's game so my ST seat is up for grabs. Face value is £55, but lets say I'll accept any donation (within reason you skinflints) to SC rather than give me money for it.

Assuming i can re-assign it to another member at such short notice I am willing to do so.

Seat is in Paxton Upper Block 517 Row 12.

Just to confirm, I'm not asking for £55 for it, just any amount donated to SC.

Took it on myself to quote your post in the Stadium thread (because people are talking about tickets).

Sorry if it was out of order, just trying to help you out.

I’m dreading this fucking game. Feel a shithousing, bizarre, horrible, mind-numbing 0-1 coming on. Too many years of Spurs finally in the driver’s seat only to see us put it in reverse, jam down on the gas pedal and end up smashing into the car behind us before exiting the vehicle, hands planted firmly on our forehead in disbelief.

Happy to be proven wrong obviously- but let’s just say that in the games we “should win”....

Um, yeah...

I know what you mean. Let’s hope the team have moved on from losing these kind of games.

Need to make sure we get maximum points from these so-called gimmes now. Although we're favorites for all of our remaining games, Everton and West Ham games are potential banana skins. West Ham are shit but always seems to up their game against us, and Everton actually are quite good just really inconsistent. If they happen to be having an "on" day against us we could potentially drop points there so need to make all out games count to lessen the impact of a slip up in the other ones.

The general consensus since the Everton/United result, is that Everton are decent at home but awful away (lost to Fulham or something?).

These poeple full on panicking about Brighton at home, how the fuck are you going to cope next week in a CL semi-final.

Please don't come to the stadium. Don't need your negativity.

May be the case. I've just seen them a few times this season where they've played well and they have players like Siggy and Richarlson who, in 1 out of 3 games, have the ability to really punish teams. I still think we'll beat them, especially at home, but they're no pushover. I certainly don't want to go into that game mathematically needing a win to avoid finishing 5th or something, therefore 3 points from this game is an absolute must for me.

Also West Ham like I say always raise their game against us and we play them just before the CL semi first leg, so that's a potential banana skin. To be honest even B'mouth is sandwhiched between the two Ajax games and they're no mugs either. So while we're favourites for all our games, I certainly wouldn't be shocked if we don't win them all. Definitely squeeky bum time unless Arse, Utd and Chelsea keep dropping points too (which is also quite likely to be fair)

To be honest we could do without the "I'm a better fan than all of you" brigade as well

Don't get me wrong, I 100% agree with the post that I originally quoted. Those teams have proven they can beat some bloody good opposition.

I openly admit that I pretty much don't pay attention to any team that isn't THFC. That's why I said about the general consensus on here, because I am in no position to say anything really.

Convincing win I hope.

I do think every player will up their game over the next week for a chance to play in the semi final. Doesn't come around very often!
