    It doesn't matter.

    He'll still score at least 10 goals this season.

    You can almost set your watch by Glenn Murray - he's that reliable.
    With better service from a far more creative team and tactics, there are PL goals still to come from Muzza.

      Obviously Murray does need phased out at some stage, and cannot be our first choice striker next season, however in Murray we posses something most bottom half teams would give their left limb for...a proven premiership goalscorer. I suggest we keep him in a glass box on Potter's mantlepiece, with 'BREAK GLASS IN CASE OF EMERGENCY' written in the front. Murray still has a lot more to give. You only have to look at the likes of Quagliarella in Italy to see how older players are still doing it at the top level.

      Murray would be ideal as our 75th minute "need a goal" substitute who we can lump it forward to and who will cause mischief, especially in these VAR days. But he shouldn't be a regular starter by any means.

      Am I watching Brighton or Barcelona?

      I just can’t see Potter relying on Glenn in the way Hughton did. I’ve watched the Ostersunds play reel (tragic I know) and some of Swansea’s games last season (even more tragic arguably) and he has NEVER seen the need for a goal hanger like Glenn to bale his teams out.

      I agree he hasn’t ever HAD a Murray type in his teams but his signings indicate he’s going to play a strong Diamond through midfield with pace on the wings and multitasking players rather than “defend in depth and break”

      Obviously it’s going to be a roller coaster to begin with but Murray doesn’t fit any model I envisage Potter using.

      If we start badly or our players can’t adapt maybe...but I’ll be hugely surprised if Murray features for quite a while. He’s kept him, so can see some use...but I’m struggling with this.

      But I'm not talking about his past contributions, which are legendary.

      I just don't see him having anything else to give, for the future.
      But as CJ has pointed out, you said EXACTLY the same thing a year ago, and were proved wrong, yet you still log online everyday to stick the knife in to the bloke.

      The club bought in a young proven striker and the manager refused to play him, favouring a completely ineffectual lumbering unit who offered 1 moment (from really shitehouse defending) through the last half of the season.
      Murray scored seven times from the end of January onwards. How do six of those goals not count as offering anything, exactly?

      Now the hope seems to be Murray will drag even more new signings down to his level.
      See that? /\ /\

      That isn't just objective assessment of a player's worth. It is unnecessary, spiteful, snide. You're supposed to be a Brighton fan
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Now March and Knocky...and Andone / Locadia...different kettle, different fish. Hell. Potter might even get a tune out of Ali J.

      Has Murray personally done something to @Stat Brother? This is genuinely getting a bit weird.

      We get it - you don't think he should be our main striker this coming season. Almost everyone in the thread agrees that he will have at least a partially diminished role this year, due to his age and now near chronic lack of pace, however he still has certain attributes that can and will make him a very useful member of the squad.

      Why not just leave it there?

      Nothing to say about Murray but just wanted to chime in and say that photo of Knocky flanked by Bruno and Liam is awesome.
