Jones: We showed real character

Nathan Jones hailed Albion’s character as they grabbed a late point at Blackburn tonight.

The Seagulls came from behind twice in the last 20 minutes to secure a 3-3 draw.

Dale Stephens headed their 88th-minute point-saver after David Rodriguez and ex-Rovers defender Gordon Greer had earlier scored.

Jones, the Seagulls’ assistant head coach, said: “I thought we showed a lot of character.

“We started very well. We didn’t play particularly well.

“We didn’t defend as we normally do as a Brighton team.

“But we showed a lot of character.

“To come back and get a point here, that will be a big point – I guarantee it.

“It has been a tough couple of weeks and I felt we haven’t had what we deserved.

“Performances have been excellent. We have watched them back and analysed them.

“We have lacked a bit of clinical touch and given away silly little things every now and again.

“But tonight they showed fantastic character and came back and that is why we believe in these players.”

Jones was unhappy with the penalty decision which allowed Jordan Rhodes to put Blackburn 3-2 up.

But he added: “We have kept Blackburn at arm’s reach with this result and we have come away with something.”

Yep Cloud Cuckoo land, we defended badly as we have done in the last few games, how on earth can NJ say performances have been excellent,! I suggest he looks at the videos and analyses the games again. poor push in the back by GG for the penalty when Upson had things covered already and where was Bruno when poor Leo ended up being right back ? it all smacks of poor organisation I am afraid. At least we have Calde back for two games now.
Don't get me wrong I am quite pleased with a point there, but really last few games excellent ? get real Nathan.

Nathan Jones "Performances have been excellent". Absolute rubbish. They have been a very long way from good, never mind excellent. We've got no chance if the management team think we've been playing excellently recently. That's one of the most absurd quotes for a very long time. I thought Poyet talked some rubbish but that quote is absurd. Monty Burns knows what is Excellent.

He speaks to the media because he's far more quotable than OG. Why people somehow conflate this with team selection is beyond me.

When Mike Phelan always spoke to Match of the Day instead of Ferguson, did everyone wondering if Phelan was in fact in charge? No.

No, he spoke after EVERY match for about two seasons.
