Continuously rotating the goalkeepers when Steele is clearly a f***ing liability.

Persisting with Webster who is a donkey.

Roberto is clearly leaving at the end of the season, so doesn't care anymore.

The players are aware he is leaving and their performance's are clearly affected by this.

Roberto, if you are going, then go now. We are a sinking ship. We can get someone like Allerdyce in until the end of the season to steady the ship.
Junior stay off the Class A’s.

This is a blip, re post 360 minutes of football later.

I'm going to enjoy every moment that De Zerbi is our manager.
He's world class and currently at our club.

Guardiola or Klopp would struggle with the injuries and squad that De Zerbi is currently juggling.

Can someone remind me, is it Walsall or Stockport on Thursday night?
Liverpool have about 9 out don't they and are playing half their youth team.yet still win every game ! We have 4 out excluding hinsh.

There’s no doubt RDZ’s football has been fantastic at times but let’s not forget he got the Brighton job at the ideal time.

The physical foundations were built and he inherited a talented squad with the youth system bearing fruit. Plus he was backed by a top class support team.

He is not the only manager who would have succeeded with this set-up.

Anyway, he will go in the Summer.

Don’t be surprised if his successor thrives, and RDZ doesn’t have quite the Midas touch at his next club - mainly because his tactics can be hit and miss, and he’s volatile. It would also be interesting to know who in the club was behind which transfers.

Time for a new chant:

De Zerbi’s wrong. Let’s play it long!
De Zerbi’s wrong. Let’s play it long!

He needs to get his head around the fact that we’ve been worked out. It happened to Potter and he failed to see the signs. RDZ needs to work with what he’s got and surprise teams.

He also needs to recognise that the longer this goes on the less likely he’ll be to get a big club come after him.
With Potter though, he didn’t seem as stubborn, and although his tactics were worked out to an extent, he adaoted and certainly ended his time on a high results wise. Can’t not give him credit for the run of 30 points from 13 games before he left.

He’d have probably adapted and got Chelsea going eventually, so it was quite amusing to see him sacked so quickly.

Agree, he’s a stupid spiked haired, stubborn, miserable Italian twat, who can bugger off to Barcelona with my blessing. 🤣

Maybe not, but that is what went through my head as the 3rd goal went it. Now I am looking forward to Thursday and hope to god Roma do not park the bus.
Italian teams are the best bus parkers in the world!

Yep, as per my post above, he inherited a team that was on a run of over 2 points a game. And we’d played some very decent teams in that run as well.

He was the ideal manager to give that Brighton team a turbo mode. For some reason ,that was beyond Potter.
Massive kudos to RDZ for that.
IMO there are question marks as to whether he’s got the skills to rebuild a bigger club though.

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Is he too stubborn to change how we play?

What?
"I don't care that we lost the game", "It doesn't matter"
Yes it does!
Loose choice of words which are easily criticised, but I think what I he was really trying to say was that, despite all, the team must keep together and the results will come.
