    Great bit about us on Football 365.

    Whole article is about the FA cup and pretty insightful, but the bit about us is particularly good:

    * One club that got away with making 11 changes were Brighton and Hove Albion, a team that has the Midas touch. Chris Hughton chose to change every player from the victory at Fulham on January 2, but Brighton still breezed past MK Dons.

    Like all fans of clubs who have suffered years of past abuse and neglect, Brighton supporters are a pessimistic bunch. Many are predicting a repeat of last season’s mini-collapse, when a small squad was crippled by fatigue and left empty before and during their play-off semi-final. They dare not believe, because to believe is to invite the Gods of football karma to inflict their wrath.

    For every other fan of a Championship club, however, Brighton are the blueprint. Success has not been achieved through lavish spending, but by allowing a proven manager to quietly go about his business. Too many Championship clubs are ineffective rehabilitation centres for Premier League just-not-quites or never-weres, but Brighton is the opposite: this is a club that improves players. Players like Anthony Knockaert, Glenn Murray, Gaetan Bong and Jiri Skalak.

    The 2-0 victory over MK Dons made it six victories in a row for Hughton’s side. They are unbeaten in the league since September 10 and have now conceded six goals in their last 13 matches. Barring a disaster of unfathomable proportions they will take their place in the Premier League next season, and no club is more deserving. A favourable draw and FA Cup run would be a wonderful side order.

      football365 clearly know nothing, we've just been lucky so far this season and are due a massive dip in form.
      When Steve McQueen met The Blob, he tried to kill it. It probably never crossed his mind to try and take it out to a restaurant.

      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      The Guardian interview with FA Chairman Greg Clarke has a rather more worrying paragraph. "Asked in particular about Brighton boss Chris Hughton, who was born in London and played for the Republic of Ireland, Clarke replied: “Why not? It would be wonderful to see a black England manager. It would put us forward 20 years.”

      I don't think the present incumbent will be departing particularly soon.

      Hopefully,Chris won't move on for a few years yet,but I think he would be excellent for England.Ireland might claim him first though.

      Over-confidence is not a BHAFC supporter trait, and quite right too. One game at a time says the gaffer. The only way. Anybody getting carried away should stop.
