We gave them a two-goal start, says frustrated Leicester boss

The Argus: Ashley Barnes scores a goal which infuriated Leicester boss Nigel Pearson Ashley Barnes scores a goal which infuriated Leicester boss Nigel Pearson

Albion have been told they were gifted two “soft” goals at The Amex yesterday.

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson reckons poor defending by his side played a part in the Seagulls’ 3-1 win.

Pearson said the hosts played well. But he felt they were assisted by some below-par work by his side as David Lopez set up strikes for Ashley Barnes and Craig Conway.

He said: “They were soft goals again. We conceded a couple of poor ones in midweek (when losing at Sheffield Wednesday) and the first two we conceded here gave us an awful lot to do.

“The first one in particular is not good.

“We had our moments in the first half but I don’t think we showed the desire to make things happen.

“Against a good side, you don’t want to be giving them a two-goal start.”

All goals against his team he calls soft goals. Maybe he shouldn't have a soft defence.

'Gave us two goals,' really! The fact is that when something is done so well it suggests that it was easy but in reality it isn't.
The ball laid in for the first goal by David was inch perfect, the run by Barnes to get on the end of it was timed just right, yeah it looked easy but that was because both players showed their combined skills.
David delayed the pass to Conway so that the ball arrived at exactly the right moment, Conway's skills enabled him to tuck it away, again a demonstration of skill by both players.
We didn't get two gifts from the Leicester defense, rather we handed out two lessons in timing, passing and finishing.

To be fair you did give them a goal back with one of the most shocking pieces of defending seen since the last goal we last conceded at Selhurst.

No one defended the far post and for that reason the goal was a gift to Leicester, Pearson doesn't care to mention that though.

Mr Pearson, whether you gave us "soft goals" or we just scored easy goals, a goal is a goal is a goal. So Mr Pearson, you, (excuse the four lettered word), LOST.

I just spent about 20 to 30 minutes reading the comments on, foxestalk.co.uk the vast majority of the Leicester fans blame Pearson for the last two defeats with team selection being the problem. None of the fans referred to our goals as, 'gifts,' buy many did say that their back four was crap yesterday.

Oddly enough I didn't find one single comment that mentioned any of our players by name, none were picked out for praise or derision. I did find 2 or 3, from 4 pages of comments, that said we were a decent side, the other 100 or more mostly slagged off Pearson.

I was watching the replay and the man who was marking the scorer (might have been Crofts) ran straight into Ince while following his man, allowing him to get away. Unfortunate really.

I agree with Vegas, the technique and accuracy of Lopez' passes for the goals were sublime. Leicester didn't show any drive and desire, till we gifted them the free kick they scored from. Having said that, you did get the feeling the score could change right up till the last 5 minutes or so.

Bring on the Boro!

And Speroni will have to have a back operation at the end of the season, caused by constantly picking the ball out of the net.

That's because nobody there knows who they are. I'm sure half of Sussex don't know either. Until fairly recently (not counting the early 80's) Brighton were a small club. What do you expect? A little publicity wouldn't go amiss and in turn that would bring Mr Barber in some much needed cash. We had great success with full page adds for our home matches in 'The Croydon Advertiser'. Dick Knight knows his stuff and should be brought back as an advisor.

Leicester fans are unanimous in saying Pearson was responsible for giving usa headstart by leaving Knockart on the bench until half time in favour of "sideways/backwards" Hammond.
Hard to argue with them so unsurprised he wants to put the blame elsewhere.

Two fantastic passes by David and two very clinical finishes

Every goal could be stopped with the benefit of hindsight.

Fact is we were just to good for you at that point in the game.. Our football was good and our high tempo was simply something that YOUR team could not deal with.

Enough of the sour grapes. The best team won and a well done would have been more appropriate.

I'm sure NP would agree that the worst piece of defending in the match was from us when we gave a free header to one of his headers.

Poor show NP

Nice to be able to win after Tuesday disappointment, losing to the bottom club and then beating the top club, what's that all about? I do feel we are raising our game for the big clubs and not trying for the smaller ones. Complacency simply CANNOT be tolerated, I can't work out if that's the fault of the manager or the players, but it is Oscars job to motivate them so the jury is still firmly out. More questions than answers is a fair summarising of yesterday. Annoying that palace won again, had hoped they'd get the lowest points total ever, now they're close to safety, still we can but hope they crash again.

Better still you go and support one of the manc teams, the albion have got fans with the highest IQ in the country and do not need you bringing down the average.

Surely you're not going to take that are you Vegas? Sorry, but it deserves a response. Even Brighton fans have feelings - or so I'm lead to believe - but reading the abuse piled on poor old Mr Pearson I'm not so sure now. Sad times .

Sorry, I thought you were calling me a Nigel. That would be rude, me being from Wales. I manage the Nigels I am not one of them. Hope that clears up any confusion.

Oddly enough I didn't find one single comment that mentioned any of our players by name, none were picked out for praise or derision. I did find 2 or 3, from 4 pages of comments, that said we were a decent side, the other 100 or more mostly slagged off Pearson.
Seriously Vegas you're supposed to be in Vegas where it all happens, and you're wasting your life reading about Leicester city's fans opinions! Get down the casino, order yourself a double jd and coke chuck some cash on the card tables and mingle with the high rollers. You might as well be in Bognor if these are the sort of activities you want to get up to. Or maybe you've just gambled it all down the drain.

Oscar Garcia is not under pressure. 'Desperate ramblings' is unfair and simply a case of not yet getting to grips with the English language. Cut him some slack. FFP rules are down to Mr Barber. Nothing to do with Oscar.

Not a great interview from Nigel Pearson - snidey criticism of some of his players and ours. Basically said the only reason that Brighton brought Lua Lua on wsa to try and get their full back a second booking. Secondly he was disappointed with the soft penalty and that certain players go down too easily (meaning Barnes) - this is the man who manages Knockaert......

Best home performance of the season by some distance yesterday - just makes Tuesday's waste of three points all the more annoying.

I'll keep trying to get as many points as I can for you Thewithdeanyears. Don't ever give up hope. Strength in adversity is our motto. Together we are strong. I'll give you a wave in the Sainsbury stand at the next home game. Up the Palace!

Pearson another annoying manager - so many of them nowadays. Oscar on the other hand much more professional both in victory and defeat. Fortunately i sense far more victorys this season so his frustrations will not be tested too much this - but next season in the premier league he may well be tested a little more shame we wont be able to compare him to pulis who I suspect will have a reasonable season with palace back in the championship.

It won't be easy to survive in the Prem but I am convinced I can orchestrate a memorable season of survival. There is a tremendous grit and determination to succeed in SE25 which has taken me by surprise. Hard to explain that sort of mentality if you've had a privileged background.

No one defended the far post and for that reason the goal was a gift to Leicester, Pearson doesn't care to mention that though.
It was a free kick not a corner. If someone had been on the far post, it would have played the Leicester players onside.
Barnes was marking King, but when King moved, Barnes was blocked by another Leicester player so couldn't go with him. Clever play by the Foxes.

Barnes (if it was indeed him marking the scorer) was blocked by INCE, not another Leicester player, so that was no more than good fortune for the away team.

Not necessarily. It's incredible how fans can quickly and irrationally turn against their own players and management. Look at the comments about Oscar Garcia after the Barnsley game; the completely unacceptable and unfair criticism of Barnes; the unending negative comments about the catering and the eternal quest for the perfect pie. Having read your comment I now accept it was about Nigel. I apologise. Please remember my humility when the Palace fans turn on me.which, unfortunately, is inevitable.
