how was Mings? looked poor on MOTD highlights

He had a few dodgy moments, but as a team, first season back up, we're going to, I guess. I just like the fact that he tries to play out from the back, can hit a long pass and is a physical presence.

Plus Brighton were tricky to play against. It's not easy to look completely solid against them. As Spurs found out a few weeks ago.

Weíve played so well at times this season and failed to win itís about time weíve won while not on top of our game. Two late goals in both halves is very nice, great attitude.

I thought Brighton were very good for large parts of the game. We just didnít get tight enough in the middle of the park. They waltzed through us too often. I know Connor is a goal threat but when heís not he doesnít do his other job well enough at this level. This is more important when Grealish is quite rightly playing a roaming role. He was excellent throughout today. A last minute winner the like Of which I canít remember. So sweet.

Yeah, they seemed to get through our lines to easy and able to move it up the pitch in no time.

Conor had to be the unluckiest player yesterday. Pulled up for a free kick that wasn't (resulting in a goal) and booked (where was var then?). Had a perfectly good goal chalked off. Had a couple of stinging free kicks well saved by their keeper. Got subbed 1st, when all our midfielders (Jack excepted) struggled to contain  Brighton coming forwards, even when they were down to 10. On another day he could have had 2 or 3 goals from that performance. I thought Mings, Heaton and Jack were our outstanding players yesterday, who performed for the full 90+ minutes. Really happy with the 3 points. Fully pÄssed off with var.

I saw the highlights and I still don't know why our goal was disallowed. No way is that a clear and obvious foul. And coaches should be able to challenge, like in NFL. That way we could have challenged the ludicrous free kick that they scored from.

Weíll have to presume VAR ref Martin Atkinson was cracking one off the wrist in his portacabin when that free kick was given, either that or his fucking eagle eye let him down.

Felt we were too loose and open throughout.

The full backs were both poor in both directions, Nkamba didn't offer any protection, Hourihane was anonymous, Wl Ghazi poor, McGinn looked tired and Wesley not effective at all.

Our press was disjointed, our play second half far too pedestrian, we made it too easy for Brighton to play through us and we were fortunate that they only really mustered one good chance second half.

That said, we still ended up creating some very good opportunities. Hourihane and El Ghazi ought to have scored.

Grealish was excellent and it was nice to have  slice of fortune.

Brighton fans seem a bit deluded and I've enjoyed their salty comments.

Hourihane did score. I don't see why it's fortunate that we won when we scored three good goals and they scored zero.

For me he didn't have one of his best games and looked to be struggling with an injury, on a couple of occasions I thought he was going to have to come off.

Marvelous has his worst game for us yesterday.  Not sure he had a touch in the first 20 minutes.

Watching the match yesterday and the Rugby World Cup, reminds me of something that football can learn from rugby, they should bring in the 10 minute sin bin for a second yellow. It seems very unfair that a player and his team are penalised for an offence, that has the same punishment as that of let's say a leg breaking tackle, plus in most cases it spoils the match. Obviously if the player then goes onto get a 3rd yellow, then he is off.

Our goal should have stood
It wasn't a free kick
Montoya should have been sent off too

I donít agree, Lew. A player who has had a yellow card should have the sense and discipline to know he has to be careful with any subsequent challenges. If he gets a second card it is his own fault and in any case his manager can always substitute him if he thinks heís at risk.

Assuming Montoya was the number 22? If so, yes. The referee conveniently allowed play on which gave him an excuse not to dish out the second yellow.
