Ulloa double but Albion let lead slip

The Argus: Leo Ulloa gives Albion the lead but it wasn't enough as Charlton went on to win (photo Simon Dack) Leo Ulloa gives Albion the lead but it wasn't enough as Charlton went on to win (photo Simon Dack)

Albion missed a great chance to go into the top six for at least a couple of hours as they came out second-best in a Boxing Day scrap at Charlton.

The Seagulls were beaten 3-2 having gone ahead through Leo Ulloa on his first start for almost three months.

Ulloa prodded in his second in added time but it was too late to save his side in a hectic tussle.

Right-sided midfielder Lawrie Wilson was the hero for the hosts with a goal in each half to change the course of the contest.

Yann Kermogant then curled a free-kick into the top corner to give his side breathing space.

Ulloa fired Albion ahead on 22 minutes when he twisted on to his left foot in the heart of the penalty area and fired low past Ben Alnwick.

The Seagulls were worthy of their lead and looked to be in charge at that stage.

But the hosts dragged themselves level ten minutes later when Wilson found space inside the box to drill a shot across Peter Brezovan and inside the top corner.

Wilson produced a very similar finish on 58 minutes when a poor touch by Andrew Crofts set him up.

Ulloa then saw a header cleared off the line before Kermogant made it 3-1.

Substitutes Ashley Barnes and Inigo Calderon both shot against posts in the same incident.

Barnes and Kemy Agustien were involved in Ulloa’s late, late second but they never had a chance to grab an equaliser.

Rubbish. 1 point from the last 6 and slipping down table now.
A lot of top managers are available now after recent sackings. Not too late to bring in an experienced boss to try and salvage the season.

Dipstick. These results happen. We will be fine at the end if the season. Greats see Ullao back and scoring, and lasting 90 mins. Onwards and upwards.

The Championship is not decided on just a couple of games but at the end of the season so let's see where we are after 46. We will not be relegated, but we are still in with a very good chance of the playoffs. There is certainly no place for talking about changing the manager. Oscar Garcia is an experienced coach who has a great future ahead and we are very fortunate to have him.

Don't you mean "onwards" and "downwards"?

Can't beat Barnsley or Huddersfield at home and lose 3-1 to a Charlton team that had scored seven goals in 10 home games before today. All down to bad luck, of course.

A blind man could get Brighton into the play-offs with the talent we have in our squad but all this guy Oscar Garcia wants to do is field his negative 4-5-1 formation and try to nick a 1-0 win.

We've done pretty well so far against the top teams this season but when you can't beat Barnsley, Bournemouth, Charlton or Yeovil the end result is mid-table mediocrity, which is what most people were predicting before the start of the season. Looks like they were right.

And why the hell was Brezovan in goal today when everyone with half a brain realises he's an accident waiting to happen. Enough of this "keep the shirt" policy. Play your best players.

Warning!
Sussexscum40 is a troll who has been fishing over several years.
He is neither clever nor witty but occasionally manages to make unhappy situations feel worse for some fans. It is a solitary and pointless hobby, but he does seem to enjoy discomforting anyone who is already feeling bad.
You certainly shouldn't trouble to respond directly to him - he gets seriously aroused at out people's unhappiness......

On this occasion i dont think he is the dipstick ,i think the "dipstick is the person responsible for team selection ,this was a comedy of errors ,Barnes ,who has played brilliantly in Ulloa`s absence ,albeit without scoring hatfulls ,gets dropped ,but our 1st choice keeper is left on the bench for our 3rd choice ,who had a shocker ! .

Charlton = worst goals ,worst general home record ,failed to score in 6 out of 10 home games ,and we play with one striker ,30 seconds after Barnes came on to link up with Leo ,they had their 1st joint effort at goal !.

On the Charlton site they asked and were warned by Andy Naylor ,how good Ince is and they should be wary of him ,and he doesn`t get a look in.

The way the side was set up today ,was a late Christmas gift for Charlton ,we gave them the set up they would have chosen for us . Once Bruno got booked ,it was obvious that one of our subs was going to be for him ,we had to keep the second for a while in case we had to change TK if Brez didn`t improve , he didn`t with the free kick,that only left us one option ,and guess what ,instead of putting Lita on ,who wasn`t named ,we swap like for like MF`s ,which must have made their day !.

All in all ,Oscar /Nathan ,3 of the worst sides in the league ,Barnsley ,Huddersfield ,and Charlton ,2 of them at home ,and we get 1 point from 9,this is down to team selection imho ,it might be Christmas ,but it`s no time for sentiment with these stats !. UTA

I'm afraid that that is insulting to genuine idiots. The sad soul tries to use different names to make it look like other people share his/her views but the style of writing stays the same.

To the important matter, the football, we know anyone can beat anyone in this league and there will be plenty more results like this for all teams before the end of the season. The teams that gain promotion or make the play-offs will be those that can be the most consistent. As to whether that will be the Albion only time will tell. Great to see L U back scoring and don't forget O G has so far not been able to field his strongest team.

I thought you said you'd had it with this site? Should have guessed you would be straight back as soon as we lost, you old misery.

Still, this result is the Christmas highlight for many 'fans' on here.

Looks like another poorly selected side starting with the goalkeeper. One wonders if there has been something of a rift between Kuscak and Management. We all know he is a big head but it's for a reason. He is the best goalkeeper in the Championship, so play him, not flapper Brezovan.

Bruno needs to sort himself out. Why didn't Agustein and Ince start. Lualua not even on the bench, whilst Lopez had 63 wasted minutes. Bridcutt is going so he might as well not get a game as his mind has been elsewhere since he came back from injury. Only bright spot two goals fom Ulloa which will make him even more in demand. Sell Barnesy, not Ulloa.

I can't believe we keep dropping points against these poor sides. Mentally we just don't see up to it.

Poor, really really poor.

Someone has to be responsible for recent results ,only fools believe our poor showing of late is somehow down to the law of average ,or something equally random . Regardless of where the problem is ,it must be cut out ,whoever is at fault !!. UTA tug509

Many comments today that tell of how Oscar got his lineup wrong, all bar one and that one questioned TK's non inclusion, and they all came, AFTER the match. I am not offering an opinion as to whether the comments were right or wrong, I just wish we could get these opinions before the match starts. The team was announced and just one, 'partial,' word of decent.

The Argus put up a lot of threads today, several opportunities for people to voice an opinion on the team Oscar sent out before the game got underway, but barely a word was written.

The easiest thing to do as a fan is to decry the decisions of the manager, AFTER the result is known, we are all experts at that time.

Hi Vegas ,personally i try not to pick holes in any Albion team ,but i still have some reservations on certain ocasions ,today with Tomasz for instance ,but with respect to ",put those thoughts out there ",before a ball is kicked ,would smack of arrogance to me ,we have a manager ,who is far more knowledgeable than i am for instance ,so it makes sense to put a certain amount of faith in his choice . However ,it is only on days like this that we can and should voice an opinion ,because i think most of us ,would have chosen the same side ,and it wasn`t the side that played !. UTA

Tug, as fans the first thing we want to know is the line up, especially given the options we now have, I don't think it disrespectful to Oscar to voice an opinion on the line up before the game starts. It was easy for Oscar to choose to start Brez in goal, his recent performances helped in that decision, but Oscar gets it in the neck AFTER the match for starting Brez.
There was not a word against starting Ulloa, this the guy that told us all last week that he was only at 70% fitness. The trolls aside, all I am saying is, voice an opinion before the game starts and then see if you are right because silence would suggest that people agreed with Oscar's choices, but once we lose, then all are up in arms at the selections.

Evening Vegas,
Agree re others comments after the match, but I was there and was surprised at Ince not being in the side and would have commented had I had the opportunity, for me there was to many changes for changes sake, Ulloa it goes without saying he should play, but to drop Ince for Andrews and also bring Crofts back in just upset the rhythm in midfield, Lopez was very poor again (no pace whatsoever) Bruno poor and had to be substituted as he was being run ragged and would have got sent off, El-Abd lucky to stay on after his usual wrestling antics, Buckley had lead in his boots and poor old Brez in goal had a stinker, the free kick we watched being set up for the third goal and everyone around me all said top left corner, Brez didn't even move as it sailed in. Had we had TK in goal things might have been different, Ince should be the first name on the team sheet and we need pace upfront, everyone was asking for Lita again but not even on the bench! Trouble is next match will see a further raft of changes, TK, Greer, Ince, Caldi, and Orlandi I believe will all start so we might not click again! On a previous thread a while back I mentioned the returning players (better on paper) might upset the rhythm and I think that's what is happening, it is going to be a while before we gel again imho, I just hope it's not to late before we do. When Kemy and Barnes came on and played off Ulloa things changed but it was to late by then, we had one cleared off the line, hit the post twice in the same attack but were very suspect at the back throughout (a sign of things to come I feel due to the age of our defence). A good turn out by our supporters and an entertaining match but it could and should have been a different outcome, we need to improve and get some stability in the side or we could drift into mid table, having said all that we will now probably stuff Blackpool Saturday.

But if we where all experts, like yourself, TB would not have had to spend millions prizing Oscar away from ( Israel) the toughest league in the world.

He could have just posted an advert in the Argus situations vacant.

Ps How do you know this guy Oscar is so good? Are you also an expert on the Israeli league.

You said Brighton would win easily today, how about you saying I got it wrong, again. before calling the other posters out.
I said what I said, 'before,' the game and I stick by it. I thought that we would have enough to win and barring a rare bad defensive day for the back five, we would have won, or at least not lost.
I would rather offer my opinion BEFORE the game and be wrong, than write the bull$hite that you offer after the result is known. As I have said many times before, you really should stop tying to sound clever, that gig just isn't working out for you.

I think TK has been such an integral part of our best performances in recent years that to overlook him for our 3RD place keeper ,no matter how well he has done in recent games ,and i for one think he has been a credit ,he is still not the same as TK . I am not sure whether the 70% quoted for Ulloa`s fitness was for our benefit or our rivals ,however ,if a forward misses a goal ,the score doesn`t change ,but when a keeper misses a goal the score does .

I keep thinking back to when Richie Barker played for us ,Rotherham was where he came from ,and who were top of the league ,unbeaten at home in about 10 games ?, i believe it was Micky Adams` first spell with us ,we were about 5th from bottom and looking for a thumping on a Tuesday or Wednesday night ,anyway ,MA put 3 strikers up front and we beat them 3-1 ,RB scored one himself ,our season picked up from there on . What i am saying is ,sod the rule book ,after all everyone has a copy ,take a chance ,put some faith in your lads ,and drive it like a rental ,in other words ,play as we did against Liecester ,we went for the throat and deserved the win ,then we play H,field and C,ton like scared mice !.

I have said this before,but i personally don`t care if we let in 5 goals every game ,as long as we score 6 !. UTA

Looks like another poorly selected side starting with the goalkeeper. One wonders if there has been something of a rift between Kuscak and Management. We all know he is a big head but it's for a reason. He is the best goalkeeper in the Championship, so play him, not flapper Brezovan.

Bruno needs to sort himself out. Why didn't Agustein and Ince start. Lualua not even on the bench, whilst Lopez had 63 wasted minutes. Bridcutt is going so he might as well not get a game as his mind has been elsewhere since he came back from injury. Only bright spot two goals fom Ulloa which will make him even more in demand. Sell Barnesy, not Ulloa.

I can't believe we keep dropping points against these poor sides. Mentally we just don't see up to it.

Poor, really really poor.
Absolutely spot on-couldn't agree with you more!

Poor, really really poor.[/p][/quote]Absolutely spot on-couldn't agree with you more! SeagullOverSelsey

You can't fault his persistance, boring pedant though he is; it always delivers a response.......

'Masterminded?' Don't make me laugh! He didn't mastermind anything. He just got lucky when Everton (1) lost their keeper; (2) gave away a penalty; and (3) had to play with 10 men for a good part of the game. That doesn't add up to a tactful 'mastermind' by that egostistical prat....it s all about luck being on his side.

He seems to have quietened down a lot since he left Brighton and more careful what he says.

Looks like another poorly selected side starting with the goalkeeper. One wonders if there has been something of a rift between Kuscak and Management. We all know he is a big head but it's for a reason. He is the best goalkeeper in the Championship, so play him, not flapper Brezovan.

Bruno needs to sort himself out. Why didn't Agustein and Ince start. Lualua not even on the bench, whilst Lopez had 63 wasted minutes. Bridcutt is going so he might as well not get a game as his mind has been elsewhere since he came back from injury. Only bright spot two goals fom Ulloa which will make him even more in demand. Sell Barnesy, not Ulloa.

I can't believe we keep dropping points against these poor sides. Mentally we just don't see up to it.

Poor, really really poor.

Yeah, you're another one who has been on here for years - or maybe it just seems like it - and never anything positive to say. Do you even go to matches?

Thought we would have got a point however no panic,we should still finish in the top half of the table.
I am concerned about the keeper situation,Tomas is our no1,no question and should have been recalled as soon as he was fit,it seems management are trying to unsettle him,we can expect offers in January,he deserves a place in the top division,so good luck to him.
