      What I feel pissed off about. Loads of kids turn up, stand at the front at the very least to get a signature and see their heroes close up. Had many of us adults, fans, supporters known what team would have been put out, I am sure there would have been around a couple of hundred Brighton fans present. Its undignified to Crawley as it only appears now purely for gate receipt purposes and not the game, and is a game that could have easily been played at our excellence center at any time.

      I and the ten who went today, spent a few quid, took time out of work to go and got soaked, leaving at half time. If i had known that the near full squad x 2 would be playing v Fulham at Aldershot tomorrow, we all would have gone to that instead.

      I understand the need to play the youth and the future but there is a time and a place for it.
      This was posted on the club website yesterday afternoon:

      Albion head coach Graham Potter says that this weekend’s double-header against Crawley Town and Fulham respectively is a chance to assess the entirety of his squad back on home soil.

      The Seagulls head to The People’s Pension Stadium tonight having recorded a 5-2 win over FC Liefering last time out in pre-season on Saturday, and the new boss revealed the likely make-up of the side that will take to the field up the A23 this evening.

      He said, “We’ll split the squad up over the two matches this weekend and we’ll probably take a slightly younger group to Crawley.

      “We want to make sure we have a good look at those guys as a collective, whilst taking a slightly older group to Fulham on the Saturday.

      “Essentially it will still be the same in terms of trying to build the fitness and the ideas with minutes ahead of the new season throughout the two groups we do take, and we’re looking forward to both.

      I offer my embarrassed apologies for all comments made on this thread and withdraw them all

      Turns out that the stream that I was watching was an old game from the Amex against Crawley. There was no commentary and the Albion won 2-1 in an absolutely abysmal game. Had no idea until I looked at the Argus review of the match.



      Are you sure that’s not a regular occurrence?



      Blooming brilliant Icy, the irony is I agreed with most of your comments because we were extremely ordinary U23s or not, and none of them looked PL ready......

      We are playing Fulham tomorrow. This was always going to the case.
      Really?

      Lots of people didn't know this.
      We knew about the Fulham match but the club didn't advertise the Crawley game as a reserve match.

      Well, I was only expecting it to be the kids so wasn't disappointed.

      As for the match, Crawley came out strong. Clarke looked cool and composed, but not sure about his pace. Tomer had to keep coming deep, but held the ball up well. Conolly was buzzing around at speed, looked quick and direct but was continually clattered. Ahannach was the only midfielder that stood out. Second half, we lacked anything in midfield and missed Tomer holding the ball up. Very scrappy. However, the new kid was lightning quick, looked around before he received every ball, and palyed some clever passes. Bit over ambitious at times for the level of the match, but looks close to first team levels already. Would look better with better players around him on his wavelength. Full of confidence as shown by the pen. Looks £2.5m well spent on that cameo.

      As others have said - many would already have purchased tickets by then, or made arrangements to go. It's also likely that many wouldn't have seen that piece on the website either - I don't see any club FB posts, tweets nor website articles unless someone posts links on here. Visiting those places is just something I don't ever do.

      And I agree with whoever-it-was who said that in prior seasons when we've had these double-headers, first-teamers have been spread across the two games. That's certainly my recollection anyway.
