    Great news.

    I was going to post something earlier regarding the poor attitude of some Brighton fans who seem to want us to bring in any Tom, Dick or Harry. I am certain the people behind the scenes are moving heaven and earth to bring in the right players but quality players are not easy to attract and some deals take time but are worth it.
    Where have you put the f***ing biscuits??

    I think Tom, Dick and Harry are better than Emmanuel, Leon and Gary!

    Do you have any hopes and aspirations, Mark?



    On topic, sounds like we're active; may have a slightly larger budget to cater the gaps in defence!

    Yeah and signing them takes time, Mark.

    And so what if it's mid table this season? New manager, new tactics and a building block for the next season. As long as it's not relegation or whereabouts, I'm satisfied with the prospect of this current set up, we will sign players. It'll take time, negotiations aren't a quick "I want this much a week, and this much for agent fees".

    It might be literally meaningless. Not in the sense of 'not important' but in the sense of 'not telling us anything useful'.

    What's the difference in points between mid-table and a playoff spot? 10 points.
    How much of the difference between mid-table and a playoff spot is pure luck?
    A lot.

    I think Bloom chose his words 'a competitive squad' very carefully.... but then, he's a poker player. Presumably knows some maths.
    I never realised that in order to become a jockey you have to have been a horse first.
