Brighton have done fantastically well in recent seasons and demonstrates what a small club can achieve.

Brightons history is shockingly bad....the 2nd worse amongst the current PL teams,....only AFCBournmouth have a worse history.
They‘ve not won a thing, always had low crowds and hardly ever played top flight football.
We've been in the top flight TEN times more seasons than Brighton.

In recent seasons they were cautious playing solid defensive football....just making up the numbers but
with their current manager they look like they are pointing the right direction.....now play decent attacking football under Potter.

Brighton have been playing well for a while.....their results should have been better....so should be on more points.
So Logic suggests a tough game.....probably a 1-1 draw

But only 1 manager has managed to beat us away from home in the last 14 months.
That manager is Graham Potter when he managed Swansea back in Jan19.

The current record in the PL for an unbeaten away start for a newly promoted is EIGHT matches, jointly held by us and Blackburn in 93.
So if we remain unbeaten away after the Brighton match then we break the PL record for a newly promoted team.
However I’ve got a feeling we’ll lose 2-1, with Maupay scoring......hope I’m wrong.

Watched them last night v Palace, looked very good playing great passing football, I'm hoping they don't reach those levels against us or we could be in for an extremely busy afternoon and an unexpected beating.

They're not as good as Wolves, Chelsea or Spurs and we gave all 3 of those as good as we got.

Talk about cap doffing.

Agree......there’s been a recurring pattern this season ...you can guarantee that next week Brighton will join the long list of clubs that have their worse performances of the season when playing Sheff Utd

and of course we’ll be trying harder and want it more.

Chelsea was an even match but we looked higher quality than both Spurs and Wolves.

Not cap doffing at all, just acknowledging another side can play good football as well as us or isn't that allowed.

To be fair I thought they looked pretty good last night, but palace were rubbish. And despite Maupay, I thought they flattered to deceive going forward , and didn't cause there defence that many issues.Saying that, I think Potter is a decent manager, who seem to have the better of us last season.

If we win would it be the first time since premier league started that we've won 3 on the trot in the top flight?

Can't make my mind up on this one. On the one hand, Potter seemed to have us worked out last season, and Brighton are playing some lovely stuff.
But then , Chris Wilder.....

I can’t make it Saturday but my eldest is going, he’s 19. Is anyone else based in London going as a group, if so, please private message me if you’re ok for him to tag along on the train and to the ground. It’ll just be more fun than on his lonesome. Thanks in advance London Blades.

I think the difficulty against Brighton is that they're more of a well organised tea than the others (maybe Wolves aside). So, whilst they've not got the world class players they do have a work ethic, are well organised and in Maupay someone who can get you a goal. Will be tough and I can see a draw (which I'd be happy with).
