    Get Ready For Tough Times.....


    1 Not allowed!
    It looks like you are going up this time along with Newcastle, but I urge Seagulls fans to make the most of any away wins between now and the end of the season.

    Faithful away followers could be in for a shock next season as away victories in the Premier League seem very difficult to achieve for newly-promoted teams..

    Burnley, Hull and Middlesbrough all did quite well away from home in the 2015/16 Championship but have experienced a tough old time in the PL this season.

    Burnley - 11 away wins in 2015/16 - have 0 wins in 15 attempts this season, Hull 1 win in 15 attempts and Middlesbrough 1 win in 14.....just 2 away wins out of a possible 44 and, strangely, both Hull and Boro won their first away game against Swansea and Sunderland, respectively (so 0 away wins for the three promoted teams since August).

      Some of us have told the pessimists that this is the good time. There are those fans who cannot take a defeat, and look for scapegoats after every match.

      The journey is often better than reaching the destination.

      Enjoying all of this game by game, still a few twists and turns before anything is decided.

      Agree with above, the journey is probably more thrilling than the destination, whatever that may be.

      Sorry, but strongly disagree on this one. We've sampled the journey often enough. Time to sample the destination.

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      We won't be promoted so we needn't worry.

      Thank goodness someone has the piece of mind to suggest we enjoy them a bit more, I treat them all a bit too run of the mill...

      We've been there before (football wasn't invented in 1992). Fans soon got bored of draws, and defensive 1-0 wins, and wanted the manager sacked.
