    They certainly will raise their game against Newcastle but Newcastle have spent 10's of millions and may well do the same in January.Must be nice for high profile plonkers like Bruce and Benitez to have so much money to play with and it seems they don't quite get what it's like to have a smaller budget in the footballing world.
    UP THE ALBION!!!!!

      Newcastle and Villa are the whipping boys not us, in fact teams could subconsciously deraise their game against us knowing it will keep Newcastle off of the top

      Are we sure he's playing mind games though? Naive old me think he's just stating an obvious truth in answer to a question.
      This. The only ones trying to play "mind games" are the media.
      Was that the intro? I should have been in!

      Exactly what I thought when I read that. Even if we were 20 points clear at the top, other clubs will have the "Cup Final Effect" when they face Newcastle and not lowly Brighton.
      Totally this, plus the fact that they have spunked untold millions to build a massive squad of individuals and their fan base assume they have a divine right to walk away with the title.
      Rafa is under much more presuure than CH because its expected.
      "Holloway did the equivalent of supermarket sweep and loaded his trolley up and when he got home realised he had a load of dodgy flat pack furniture which he didn't know how to put together and has walked off in frustration leaving someone else to sort it out."

      Yes, he's been asked a question and he's given his answer, and that has been spun to create more clickbaity news.

      However, I disagree that his response, as quoted, is "an obvious truth". It may be his opinion that teams will now raise their game when they face us and not them, but if that is his opinion then I believe he's wrong.

      We have spent time at the top of the table in all bar one of the seasons since our return to the second tier... I think we can handle opposition teams 'raising their game' (aka 'parking the bus').

      If teams "raised their game" when playing against the Albion, surely we'd have seen some recent evidence of this. Losing a game, for example.
      не съгласявам се!

      What if there were no hypothetical questions?
