    March is starting, surely. Probably Izquierdo on 60th minute mark, or if we're chasing the game at half time?

      I like the dig at Paul Merson in the article.
      Pundits such as Paul Merson have criticised Brighton’s transfer activity using the same old cliches, saying: “I look through the list of signings and I don’t really know any of them.” Luckily for the club’s new players, whether or not Merson has heard of someone is not a great predictor of their future performance.

      Hahaha

      You've given a very narrow definition of a "Moneyball" influenced approach...

      With Tony Bloom in charge it would be very surprising if Albion were not unusually good at evaluating players' real worth and shrewd recruitment from the international marketplace.
      No that is exactly Billy Beane's definition of MoneyBall.

      Beyond that I'm not arguing a single point, of course TB has set up a system of looking for value in an 'over inflated' market.
      You don't get Tony's money by employing the Harry Redknapp's of this world, which is great and even more exciting.

      How about Ryan? I don't know the going rate of keepers, but was surprised how expensive he was.
      Compared to Jordan Pickford at £30m, Ryan cost the Premier League equivalent of £1000 and a set of kit!
      I hope you meet someone your height, so you can see eye to eye with someone as small as you!

      and if the cash were £1 coins in a tower they would be taller...

      Paul Merson should get his arse over to NSC and sign up "Never heard of them they must be shit" opinions is what NSC excels at

      Is Mr Izquierdo any good defensively do we know ? I thought March and Suttner linked up well on Saturday

      He does. Played well in his first 10 minutes and cost enough that our recruitment team must have expectations. Can he play alongside March if Knocky plays less well away from home? Or would he be better coming on after 65 minutes for now?
      Given the way he tracked back with that excellent tackle at the Watford game, shows the desire and commitment to do well.
      Give him a go on Friday, if to replace Solly or Knocky, it is going to be a long season, so let's see what he can do over 90 mins.

      Yes, so do I. Another tosspot absolutely stealing a living by not bothering with silly old nonsense such as research.

      But why were the club scratching around the bottom of the Bundesliga?

      MoneyBall isn't just 'getting a player cheap'.
      It's all about overlooking the weaknesses that causes players to fail elsewhere, while noting their 'hidden' strengths and how those strengths can be developed and become compatible along side similar team mates.

      Gross doesn't have weaknesses that caused him to be given up on, his only weakness was he played for an unfashionable side playing at the wrong end of a league reliant on 2 teams.
      I wasn't looking at his cost, just that his stats were good in a particular area - creating chances. May be I don't have a full working knowledge of MoneyBall then.
      Could be argued that we are working on his physical contribution to compete in the Premier

      I'm absolutely convinced that Brighton adopts a Moneyball approach to spending our transfer budget, which explains why we haven't splashed out on strikers, so much so I wrote eloquently on the subject here http://www.northstandchat.com/showth...ight=moneyball
