Kuszczak salutes goalkeeping rival

The Argus: Jack Butland has earned respect from in-form Albion keeper Tomasz Kuszczak Jack Butland has earned respect from in-form Albion keeper Tomasz Kuszczak

  Albion No. 1 Tomasz Kuszczak has praised the character of opposite number Jack Butland.


  England under 21 keeper Butland joined tomorrow night's visitors Barnsley on loan from Stoke at the end of September.


  The £4 million prospect conceded three more goals against his former club Birmingham on Saturday, a defeat which sent the Tykes tumbling to the bottom of the Championship table and cost boss Dave Flitcroft his job.


  Kuszczak said: "He has gone somewhere to try and play in a team which is conceding many goals, and nobody likes that.


  "You want to keep a clean sheet and have that good feeling but he is not afraid of that and fair play to him.


  "To go to a team that is struggling is not easy but he has accepted the challenge and this shows good character."

Interesting that you now give yourself TWO thumbs up as soon as you post. Must be hard though, remembering which trollter-ego you're using at any given time?

Anyway, the above story just shows that the 'goalkeepers union' is still as sound as ever. Good stuff.

Barnsley hit us for all three points at Oakwell towards the end of last season when we were expected to win.
These are the matches that can be difficult, they will be coming down to avoid losing, so could take some time to break down in a tight game.
HT/FT Draw/Albion?
Any thoughts?

Giving respect to your counter parts is a prerequisite of being a good person, Kusczczak is a good person.

Pity you dont show respect to your fellow posters.

You have been very harsh to me and my family have found it very hard to come to terms with.

Quite agree Vegas.

Changing the subject a little but having just been on the Seagulls own site I notice that Ulloa, Lua Lua and Buckley are now all back in full training.
I'm sure it's probably just me that didn't know this but what an exciting start to what might be a fabulous month for us.

This to my mind has been oddly and massively under reported by The Argus for some reason. First I heard was from Ashley saying Leo may even be back tomorrow!! I am sure The Argus have sensible reasons ...

We need to put them heftily to the sword early on - no fiddling about and leaving it till late in the match. With a manager gone it's often not great for the next team that plays them.

Why would Leroy stay with us or wish to extend for any reason his loan come January seeing as he chose and stated he chose to come to us to play?

Agree and with Leo almost back with us I think it's fair to say that he might not even make the bench in the very near future

But you are not my counter part, I wish nothing but the best for the club and you just post basic crap. Gee Jay takes a pragmatic view of our next match and the best response you can come up with is to tell him/her, not to go.
You don't deserve my respect, others do and get it.

I had no idea about them training, in fact I commented, in an earlier posting today, that there were not in training, great news for all the Brighton fans, bad news or our competitors.

Be great to see Leo on the bench tomorrow night and get some game time, probably more likely for the Leicester game, could certainly do with his strength against one of the divisions most physical sides.

Buckley and Kaz coming back is great news, just hope Kaz picks up where he left off, a real ninety minute live wire, his last two games provided some of his best football.
Timing is everything, and our current league position is brilliant considering the injuries we've had, a real testament to OG's ability as a manager.

Yes, but he tried to fleece the Albion by trying to pay the minimum fee for Gareth Barry when he took him to Villa as a 16yo

Thank God Dick Knight forced it to tribunal.

So do I hope John Gregory succeeds at Crawley? NO

Yup Tommy's right and it does indeed take some guts to take on the Barnsley GK'ing role, where his rep' is on the line.

Hope he does well with two rather obvious exceptions!

4-1 to us tonight. Not quite last season's tally but a healthy immitation!!

Incidentally, you may remember last season there was a crazy chain of results involving us, Barnsley and Birmingham. As I recall, Birmingham ground out an extremely frustrating win at the AMEX, then got battered five nil at home to Barnsley (with Craig Davies scoring four!). We then whipped Barnsley 5-1.

Some of last Saturday's results were a tad weird, but they helped us, I wonder if we will see some odd ones tonight.

I think it was the other way round, wasn't it? We stuffed Barnsley, they stuffed Birmingham then Birmingham beat us.
