I can't see it mentioned elsewhere, but surely Dalot was offside for the 1st goal? Not from the through ball, but Hojlund chest the ball as it passes him and Igor, and Dalot is about 3 feet in front of everyone else.

The Albion players were pretty sure he was, as they were ready to take the free kick.

In response to de Zerbi saying he wanted to do it his way, Ian Wright said Tony Bloom was right to tell him, go on then, go do it your way, that moving him on was the correct decision.

He says when it was going well Bloom did succumb and bought a few players that rdz wanted and it's not worked out, dahoud as an example.

When rdz did try to do it his way it didn't work, mentions how only one win in last 10 games, 17 points in 2nd half of the season and looked like someone who was sulking this half of the season.

Said Bloom and Brighton should continue doing what we've been doing as we've done brilliantly staying in the PL and get the couches in to play how he wants to play as its how we survive in this league.
Thank you, appreceiated and totally agree with what he said.

From watching it back, I'm not sure Hojlund actually gets a touch on it, but otherwise it appears you're right.

Hojlund didn't touch it, Igor did.

Our players were hoping for a freekick for a push on Igor.

Woke up. Still fuming.

So unprofessional to turn an important fixture, with league places against our rivals and millions of pounds in prize money, into a sentimental goodbye, to Steele and Lallana. And let's be honest here, both of them have middling records for us.

I can't believe we sent Lallana off like a club legend. I drool over the immaculate close control and short passing as much as anyone. But he's contributed next to no output in the 4 years he's been here. He hasn't been able to run at anything above a jog for the whole season. And i'm 10 years older I can get more power in my shots when wearing my sandals. And as I predicted about 17 times on this site, he's not taking up the coaching role, people lazily shoed him in for. He's going to coach elsewhere. We've properly done our money on him. But he's a manager's favourite so he gets a nice 55 minute swansong

I do actually like Steele. But the question is settled, he's behind Verbruggen. There's no question of him being a serious part in our future so why play him?

I'm now going to go on one of the Palace threads on here to congratulate some of the Palace fans about finishing above us. Every word will be horrific to type. I've stuck up for De Zerbi the whole time he's been here. But he has properly f***** this up
Always best for the soul, after being dumped, to declare one never really liked them that much anyway :wink:

Came off Igor's hand if anything.

The Albion highlights aren't clear (the necessary angle doesn't show enough leading up to the goal). it looked at 1st glance like it had come off Hojlund, but, yes, perhaps it was Igor who touched it.

I've seen a video from an angle where you can see it comes off Igor's hand. It is a "what the f was he doing? " video.

FWIW I want Moder here next season, even if he’s not starting every game. He can tackle, he can pass, he can even finish on occasion. I see him as a multi-position utility player, rather as March used to be, and Milner is/was (tbc)

I’d be interested to see if/how an incoming coach used him tbh.
Potentially a bigger, stronger, faster Gross

or a useless waste of space.

depending on your opinion of course

I got pelters before for saying I didn’t get the excitement about Moder’s return. I absolutely stand by that. I appreciate it suffered a really bad injury and fought his way back and respect to him for that. But in real terms he wasn’t that great before the injury - decent in flashes, but not exactly first name on the team sheet.

Since he’s come back it’s more of the same really. I think he’s a prime example of the kind of player we will look to upgrade.
