Orlandi targets Millwall tonic

The Argus: Andrea Orlandi Andrea Orlandi

Andrea Orlandi is looking for a boost to Albion's record against the Championship strugglers this season from gung-ho Ian Holloway.

Orlandi is still haunted by the memory of last season's defeat in the play-offs against Holloway's Crystal Palace.

Holloway is now in charge of tomorrow's hosts Millwall, who are hovering just a point above the relegation zone and have played more matches than the teams below them.

Albion have not fared well against the bottom three. They lost at Charlton, lost at home to Barnsley and drew at Yeovil.

Millwall also drew at the Amex earlier in the campaign under Steve Lomas but Orlandi is hoping Holloway's reputation for attacking football will help Oscar Garcia's side reverse the trend and avenge the play-off exit against Palace.

The Seagulls' midfielder said: "It's a painful memory and it would be nice if we can beat him.

"We play better against good teams, because the teams down there just defend and they are really difficult games to play.

"Maybe Millwall at home will try to play. They have got a manager who likes to attack and we will have our chances."

Good to see that the 'Sky Sports Scout,' give Solly such a glowing report, and pricing him at 4 million right now.

Interesting assessment from Orlandi....the bottom of the table teams are actually harder to score against? meaning they are better? Sure that's why they are bottom!!

The truth is we seem to have an arrogance when we play the lower teams that we can just turn up and win, never more evident than against Barnsley.

Take responsibility lads and put the workrate in! You will get results!

why the thumbs down? do one or two of you think that it's not good for one of our young lads to be so highly rated?

oh I see, posting good news about one of our players in an open forum might tip off other clubs, got it, I will try to be more careful in the future, loose lips and all that

My favourite part of that is the "Potential ability: 10 out of 10"

The scout also thinks March is at the right place to learn his craft. All good news, and I'm sure your mentioning it on here will not be alerting Barca to his abilities :-)

The good thing that jumps out of a report such as the one on Solly is that, he is not alone, we have others stepping up and showing that they too have real potential, Ince a prime example, Chickesen is also starting to show up.
I have often said that I look forward to the day when we have a young squad, in terms of average age, players that have years ahead of them rather than several approaching the end of their careers at our level or above.
Dear old Freeloader often bangs on about many of our players being below par because other clubs don't make offers for them, well I look forward to the day when we send out eleven players to start a match with every one of them being, 'wanted,' and the younger our squad gets the sooner that will happen. Chicksen, JFC, Solly, Buckley, Ince, and some that have not yet stepped up from the DS but will in the near future, I think there are a further 3 or 4 possibilities in that group, a great platform to build upon.

Thing I find with you Vegas you have usually got more to say on here than anyone, usually about fair play rubbish, I would love to no what revenue you actually contribute to our fantastic club.
I myself don't live in Brighton anymore but I make sure I get to every away game like tomorrow at millwall, you allways go on about our debt of 14 million I would like to no how much you contribute to bring our debt down.
Anyone can sit behind a computer and your entitled to your opinion like any fan but I find it relentless when you go on about our debt all the time a don't contribute week in week out, like we all do, not a go at you just my opinion!!

Well as you say I don't have to, 'buy,' my right to voice an opinion. You ask what monetary contribution I make to the club, well living in Las Vegas makes that a tad difficult, as I am sure you are aware. When I vist the UK I go to matches, it's not often but I go when I can, but maybe more importantly, I contributed my money when the club really needed it, during all those years before the Amex, going back to the Goldstone days and working forward.

You are right I do tend to focus on the financial side of things but that is largely due to my not commenting on what I don't see, matches and player performances, except for when I can online. My background, for the most part, has always been about managing people and resources so I have an interest in how the club manages it's resources. Long before the club announced it's plans to build a hotel in the confines of the stadium areas I actually came up with that suggestion, during one of my 'out of the box,' thinking sessions.

I will accept that you are, 'not having a go,' but I do wonder why you felt the need to ask, does it really matter if I live here and you live there as we both want the same thing, success for the club and the fans.

How are you contributing if you only go to away games? Unless it's a cup match, the home team takes all the gate money.
I agree that Vegas does have a bit too much to say though.
