    Any news as to why he wasn't on the bench yesterday? Injured or dropped? Calf strain again perhaps?

      I fear that he is a great player but not in a Potter team. I expect him to be moved on possibly in January but almost certainly in the summer if not. He is not a Potter style player. Shame as I really like him, but I do get it

      I thought he might be rotated and used against top sides, especially away from home when we went more defensive. The signs are that we won’t be doing anything but going toe to toe with everyone now. I don’t see him getting in the side except if Dunk or Webster get injured/suspended. He is too good to be a bench warmer and would thrive in most lower league Premier League teams who play more like Burnley and us last season.

      He will be gone by the summer. Southampton could do worse than move for him in January

      Too good for the championship though, so not a long term move

      Potter said on the radio after the game that Duffy ‘felt his calf a bit’, so on the basis he’d played two internationals and a bit of the game v Villa he was rested as a precaution, but will be ok for next week.

      Dunk, Webster, Burn and Duffy are our main senior CBs, with Baluta and Bernardo able to play there, although it isn't their first choice position. Balogun hasn't ben used in a back three so far IIRC, is he injured?

      White and Clarke may take over from Duffy next year, but he is essential right now.

      Balogun was on the bench yesterday.

      I think White may be the replacement for Dunk if Dunk finally gets his big move in the summer; Spurs or Arsenal could well do with him, and he wouldn't need to uproot his family. I agree that Duffy may well go in the summer, as he doesn't seem to suit the Potter way. Bernardo doesn't seem to be very high up the pecking order either.

      I would prefer to see him in the centre of the three with Dunk moved out left as he has played for a number of seasons. Not sure about the 3rd CB as Webster is in possession but I do not think that he can defend very well. Possibly Balogun or recall White if possible in January. How is Matt Clarke doing at Derby, another possibility?

      People praising the Greyhound for his comeback and writing off our current player of the season even though we are leaking goals like a sieve. Another day on NSC
      "I have been in professional football since I was 16 - that's 33 years this summer. I have seen and done it all. In Brighton, I thought that I had found a club that sat outside the norm. People who love their club but are realistic about their club's prospects in dire circumstances. That appealed to me. That is what I call true loyalty. Supporting the club as you have done through the hard times. I am prepared to be here through these hard times and to develop a squad as I have started to do in preparation for the day that we all move to a new stadium at Falmer. I need your support, patience and understanding in the long-term because there is no quick fix. I hope you will continue to give me that opportunity." Mark McGhee, 17th April 2006
