    Albion 2 - 2 Reading

    It’s the time of year, they say, for peace, love, and goodwill to all men.

Further tidings of comfort and joy arrived for supporters with the revelation that Santa Claus wasn’t to be the only figure spending Christmas Eve staring at the sack,

    After a positive performance almost saw all three points gained at Wolves last Saturday, it was assumed everything would flow smoothly into the Boxing Day clash with Reading for Albion.

    However on Monday the news that Sami Hyypia had offered his resignation as Brighton boss, with chairman Tony Bloom “reluctantly” accepting it, threw everything up in the air.

    While fans had been calling for the Finn to be given the sack for a number of weeks, Bloom’s backing of him recently indicated he wouldn’t be going anytime soon.

    With the former Liverpool player himself saying he wouldn’t quit unless he felt he didn’t have the backing ...

    After last Friday’s defeat to Millwall, speculation was rife regarding the future of Albion boss Sami Hyypia, however he will take charge of today’s trip to mid-table Wolverhampton Wanderers.

    The 1-0 loss in front of the Sky cameras eight days ago triggered numerous newspaper headlines linking everyone from Tony Pulis to Tim Sherwood to what looked a soon-to-be vacant managerial hot seat at the Amex.

    The impression was that the following Monday would see the Finn depart the club, something that a vast number of fans have been calling for. ...

    Albion 0 - 1 Millwall
