Albion matchwinner Upson's big weekend

The Argus: Matthew Upson is mobbed after scoring Matthew Upson is mobbed after scoring

Matthew Upson launched a huge weekend in his life with his winner at Middlesbrough.

Assistant head coach Nathan Jones revealed after the game that the former England defender is getting married tomorrow.

Upson finished the game in a bandage following a cut to his head.

Jones hailed his overall performance and that of centre-back partner Adam El-Abd.

He said: “The two of them were fantastic. They were stalwarts at the back.

“Credit to Adam El-Abd, last week he came in at short notice, he hasn’t played a lot of football, he works hard and keeps himself in such a way that when he is called upon he is always ready. He did fantastically well today.

“Matty Upson has been Matty Upson for 16, 17 years now. We know what we are getting with Matty.

“A clean sheet here with the potency and threats Middlesbrough have got is a very good clean sheet.

“Matty is getting married tomorrow so those photos might need to be photoshopped (due to his cut)!”

Good resolute perrmance and another clean sheet. Comment from the local paper in Middlesborough the corner from wich we scored was a disputed one! Good to see us getting the rub of the green.

Interested to know how Brezovan played. Again comment in their local paper that "the goalkeeper flapped at it (the free kick) wih the resulting corner causing chaos in the Brighton penalty area. " That's my boy!!

Well done Matty Upson, have a great weekend and keep that headband, we used to have a fairly good England centre back who wore one of those.
Congratulations on all counts.

Thoroughly good lad is Upson and pleased for him both with his football and private life. Even though he's now entering the twilight of his career, you can't underestimate what a good signing he's been.

Off topic slightly, is anyone else annoyed how sky sports always seem to ignore Brighton games on soccer Saturday? They go to pretty much every ground for updates yet only ever cover what's happening at our games when there's been a goal/sending off. Realllyyyy winds me up!!

Congrats Matty, both on your goal, defensive work and your upcoming marriage.
I dare you to wear that bandage for the ceremony, the bride wore white and in part, so did the groom :-))

Isnt that three things.

Got a feeling you will try to worm your way out.

The adverb of both is a little confusing.

Ps most grooms will wear white at some point during the wedding day usually on the matrimonial bed.

Relying on a lumbering dinosaur like upson is not the way forward. Where is the multi million strike force that bloom promised us? Probably blown on a luxury yacht to rival abramovichs. Upson is on his last legs and it's only thanks to the feebleness of boro that we won today. We need to stop plugging the gaps and plot a course to the stars, we always seem to be left out of everything. We want silverware, players from lands no one's heard of and a transfer warchest the size of the national debt! And we want them now!

Your club had a war-chest when you got promoted but spent it on the likes of... no, sorry, can't remember any of them. Still, Pulis will turn them around for you. *snigger*
