      I dont get managers trying to almost lose these games
      To be fair, Chris should have been confident of winning whomever he played. Some players were rested, others given more game time to get match fit, others tested, etc etc. He no doubt had his reasons for the team.

      The concern for us is that we've played really well for the last two years, playing 442 and attacking. Now we're in the PL we (and I think it's fair to include Chris here) aren't sure what we're doing. We're trying to be a more organised defensive unit, but that comes at the cost of creativity. Maybe we'll save our attacking style for playing the bottom half teams at home. Presumably Chris will reassess his options as we go.

      Fair enough, I was bored to death and likely had an unreasonable expectation ... just a bit more forward and going forward. I stand corrected!

      Worryingly negative tonight although understandable in the first two league games. Please can we start to play with more spirit, pace and nous when attacking soon.

      People might say tonight's game was boring but I had a bet on a low number of corners early on and won £6. Fortune favours the brave

      On 35 mins I went for a pee and found about 50 women in the concourse happily grazing away, part of me wanted to stay there with them

      Hughton played the same formation that we play in the PL.
      Tonights match was to allow the fringe players to have game time playing in that formation.

      Playing deep (parking the bus) does not seem to tire a team out physically, although I 'm sure it does mentally affecting the concentration. It seems from this match and the Man City match that it is the team that does the pressing and running around trying to get clear of a packed defence that actually gets more tired

      Possession football is a defensive tactic. OK if you are 1-0 up. We seemed to do the opposite.

      Aleš Matějů looked safe and so did Goldson, Uwe Hünemeier, Niki Mäenpää and Rosenior all looked OK. Not sure about the rest ?

      Brighton = blue
