    Oh well.... that’s football, win some- lose some.
    Despite my contempt for their club, I must agree that the City team were good value for their win.
    Truth is we have not played well in the last two or three games , until second half yesterday. The addition of Lamptey and Mwepu seemed to make a difference.
    Beats me how we are still fourth , and a worst case after today would put us sixth. Unbelievable!
    Could have been 8th. - United, Spurs, Wet Sham and Brentford could all have overtaken us. Good set of results for us today in the end - remarkable that we've gone four games without a win and have only dropped one place in the last few rounds!

      I'm surprised by all the comments stating the first half was so bad.

      I haven't seen too many of the earlier games this season but the ones I have seen they played the same way. I didn't think it was a poor first half. I thought they had a real go at City. That's the way that Potter has been encouraged to play. He is very brave in the way that he plays. That's what the fans were crying out for to " have a go at everyone, what is there to lose "

      Playing that way comes with risk. However from what I have seen so far this season. When Brighton have lost possession in attack, they have been very quick to get back and cover. Yesterday was just so different because City are so good and so quick on the counter attack that no matter how quickly you get back into shape it wasn't quick enough.

      Overall I thought it was a good performance and other side's wouldn't be able to counter any mistakes like City did.

      I think you just chalk it down to the fact that City were absolutely brilliant and you won't come up against many sides as good as they are.
      The Sanchez drop was the catalyst. We needed to get to 20 minutes without conceding. Against anyone outside of City, Liverpool & Chelsea we get a foothold. Great second half but we still couldn’t put the ball in the net. As GPott said “We are not competing against City.”
