Agustien plays full game in heavy defeat for Albion's development team

The Argus: Kemy Agustien Kemy Agustien

Kemy Agustien played 90 minutes for the development team in a 5-2 defeat at Bristol City today as Albion try to get him fitter for first team action.

The enigmatic Dutch midfielder signed from Swansea in the summer has dropped out of the first team picture since the FA Cup win at Port Vale at the end of January.

Will Hoskins stepped up his recovery against Bristol, lasting 62 minutes this time after a shorter goalscoring comeback from a year out with serious knee damage in the 1-1 draw against the same opponents at Lancing this week.

Simon Ireland's side were well beaten in the return clash on a mixed afternoon in goal for Olly Wray, deputising for Christian Walton who is on England under 19's duty.

Wray conceded a first half penalty which he then saved from Tyrone Barnett before spilling a shot for Barnett to put Bristol ahead on the stroke of half-time.

Joe Morrell doubled Albion's deficit early in the second half but James Muitt halved the arrears two minutes later.

A free-kick from Joe Bryan restored Bristol's two-goal cushion and Morrell struck again midway through the second half.

Courtney Richards fired an 83rd minute consolation for Albion from substitute Jeffrey Monakana's cross.

Liam Kelly completed the rout with a late penalty given away by Glen Rea.

Albion: Wray; Deen (Barnett 67), Rea, Barclay, Hunt; Davis, Richards, Starkey (Harris 65); Hoskins (Monakana 62), Agustein, Muitt. Subs not used: Wiltshire, Smith, Rowe-Hurst.

"Mercurial" on the previous thread. " Enigmatic" on this one. I think "Unfit" will suffice. That said, pleased he has come though 90 mins which may well signal an appearance in the squad on Saturday?

I agree UNFIT and pointless would be better than Mercurial and enigmatic. He obviously made a big difference then as they lost heavily.!!!

Let's trust that OG and his staff see the same things in Solly. I hope he keeps the faith with us bringing in younger players from Man Utd. I'd have Solly in every time for my money.

Scout facts

NAME: Solly March
AGE: 19 (20th July, 1994)
BORN: Eastbourne
POSITION: Midfielder
CLUB: Brighton
FACTS: Made senior debut at 16
Sky Sports Scout Ratings:
0-10 - No hoper
11-20 - Should look elsewhere
21-30 - Might not make it
31-40 - Has work to do
41-50 - Keep an eye on him
51-60 - Great prospect
61-70 - On his way to the top
71-80 - Already World-class
The latest player to be spotlighted is Brighton starlet Solly March.

The scout reports...

We check on a player attracting a lot of attention in the Championship, Solly March has recently broken into the first-team picture at Brighton - and is impressing a lot of on-lookers.

March began at his local club Lewes, and quickly progressed through youth ranks before making his first-team debut by the time he was 17.

But he was quickly attracting attention from a host of Premier League and Championship clubs.

Arsenal, Newcastle, Sunderland and West Ham were all keen on taking March, but it was his Brighton who won the day - the club his father Steve played for as an apprentice.

March penned a three-year deal with Brighton in late 2011. It took March just over 12 months to really find his feet at the AMEX, as he was then pushing for a place in the first team.

Early in 2013, March was included in a number of squads and made the bench for Brighton - but did not feature.

The following season saw him heavily involved pre-season and it has been little surprise that Oscar Garcia has recognised his talent and has brought him into his first-team squad.

And perhaps the teenager is fortunate to be working under such a progressive coach as Spaniard Garcia - given that March's game is certainly leading from the technical aspect.

Standing at over 6ft, March is a truly elegant performer - often played on the wing, but looks perfectly suited to a number '10' role, pulling the strings behind the front-man.

Comfortable on the ball, and with both feet - March has the skill set that you can't really teach but is natural. However, he has shown playing out wide that he is willing to fit into a system.

He has an eye for a pass too and learning when to play it is clearly something Garcia is working on, but he is clearly quickly emerging as a fine young player.

The scout says...

Clearly has a wonderful future ahead of him and he appears to be in the perfect place at the moment.

However, with talent like this it is hard to hide from the Premier League scouts and Brighton will have to work hard to keep hold of this prospect.

Vicente is the last Albion player I saw described as 'mercurial'.
But you have to be fit to be mercurial, and that is why B&HA is able to acquire players Like Kemy and Vicente. If there were no medical issues they would be playing in the Premier League or La Liga.
We missed automatic promotion by 4 points last year.
Imagine what a fit and motivated Vicente could have done for our season!
Like Vicente, Kemy's career has been plagued by injuries, and signing such players carries the risk of seeing little return on the investment.
Kemy is only 'enigmatic' until you look at his career statistics. After seeing his medical history, the only puzzle is how you are going to get half a season out of him.
Today's run out at Bristol is a step in the right direction, but Kemy is unlikely to be returning to his mercurial best any time soon.

Has the ability but perhaps not the attitude. I still rate him but he has to decide if he wants to make the effort or just be a playboy. I still think Stephens signing he saw as a personal set back.

Scout facts

NAME: Solly March
AGE: 19 (20th July, 1994)
BORN: Eastbourne
POSITION: Midfielder
CLUB: Brighton
FACTS: Made senior debut at 16
Sky Sports Scout Ratings:
0-10 - No hoper
11-20 - Should look elsewhere
21-30 - Might not make it
31-40 - Has work to do
41-50 - Keep an eye on him
51-60 - Great prospect
61-70 - On his way to the top
71-80 - Already World-class
The latest player to be spotlighted is Brighton starlet Solly March.

The scout reports...

We check on a player attracting a lot of attention in the Championship, Solly March has recently broken into the first-team picture at Brighton - and is impressing a lot of on-lookers.

March began at his local club Lewes, and quickly progressed through youth ranks before making his first-team debut by the time he was 17.

But he was quickly attracting attention from a host of Premier League and Championship clubs.

Arsenal, Newcastle, Sunderland and West Ham were all keen on taking March, but it was his Brighton who won the day - the club his father Steve played for as an apprentice.

March penned a three-year deal with Brighton in late 2011. It took March just over 12 months to really find his feet at the AMEX, as he was then pushing for a place in the first team.

Early in 2013, March was included in a number of squads and made the bench for Brighton - but did not feature.

The following season saw him heavily involved pre-season and it has been little surprise that Oscar Garcia has recognised his talent and has brought him into his first-team squad.

And perhaps the teenager is fortunate to be working under such a progressive coach as Spaniard Garcia - given that March's game is certainly leading from the technical aspect.

Standing at over 6ft, March is a truly elegant performer - often played on the wing, but looks perfectly suited to a number '10' role, pulling the strings behind the front-man.

Comfortable on the ball, and with both feet - March has the skill set that you can't really teach but is natural. However, he has shown playing out wide that he is willing to fit into a system.

He has an eye for a pass too and learning when to play it is clearly something Garcia is working on, but he is clearly quickly emerging as a fine young player.

The scout says...

Clearly has a wonderful future ahead of him and he appears to be in the perfect place at the moment.

However, with talent like this it is hard to hide from the Premier League scouts and Brighton will have to work hard to keep hold of this prospect.

The Scout rating...

Shooting: 7 out of 10
Passing: 8 out of 10
Tackling: 6 out of 10
Heading: 6 out of 10
Pace: 7 out of 10
Vision: 8 out of 10
Current ability: 7 out of 10
Potential ability: 10 out of 10
OVERALL SCOUT RATING: 59/80
Current value: £4million
Potential value: £18million

Solly March is total rubbish and nobody should touch him. The same can be said for his colleague Rohan Ince, also diabolical. If any clubs want these two they should look elsewhere!!! ;)

Vicente is the last Albion player I saw described as 'mercurial'.
But you have to be fit to be mercurial, and that is why B&HA is able to acquire players Like Kemy and Vicente. If there were no medical issues they would be playing in the Premier League or La Liga.
We missed automatic promotion by 4 points last year.
Imagine what a fit and motivated Vicente could have done for our season!
Like Vicente, Kemy's career has been plagued by injuries, and signing such players carries the risk of seeing little return on the investment.
Kemy is only 'enigmatic' until you look at his career statistics. After seeing his medical history, the only puzzle is how you are going to get half a season out of him.
Today's run out at Bristol is a step in the right direction, but Kemy is unlikely to be returning to his mercurial best any time soon.
Actually Vicente was fit, just Gus told everyone that he wasn't ! absolute mistake letting him go, he would have made a massive difference

Change 'would' for 'could' and I'll agree the possibility with Vicente. Don't think it was guaranteed. Perhaps that's the answer though like GP with Vicente - now read OG with KA? Attitude in training and around the camp generally could do this and could be seen as a reason why he's both unfit and dropped out of contention. With him now being mentioned as a prospect when fit perhaps he's had his attitude adjusted recently.

I think Steveg1958 was right with "would have made a massive difference" with regards to Vicente. He is just the type of player we have lacked and a top level one at that.

Unfortunately, Agustien isn't in the same league as Vicente.

Whilst I am reluctant to rock the Vincente boat as he was/is a fantastic performer, I think that it is true to say that surprisingly we only won one match in which he made an appearance. Maybe Gus didn't use him in the most beneficial way.

Vicente made 28 League appearances for us over two seasons, - and no, we didn't win just one of them.

Fitness fears I imagine

Anyway enough of this lengthy stuff. Are the Argus investigating if Ince will be fit for Saturday, as we surely need his return for what will be a very difficult and physical/powerful encounter.

Whilst it would be great to a fit Vicente at the Albion.
He has not played or been signed by another club since leaving us.
Why?
Could be a number of reasons....

He might be unable to pass a medical
He might not want to sign a pay as you play contract
He might not want to play at the standard being offered to him
He might not want to train everyday
He might not want to move home

Probably only Vicente himself knows but its a great shame that a player of such talent isn't playing for as long as he can. But maybe he is happy doing whatever he is doing. I'm grateful we saw a player of his ability play for Brighton even if it was such a short glimpse.

agree Vicente unfortunately was not blessed by good health in his later years. I doubt WE would have had the enjoyment of his "Cameo" roles, If he had kept himself injury free! Very few skilful players have avoided hard tackling in there careers. A few who come to mind include Peter Ward & Jimmy Greaves & until recently Lionel Messi. Such talent comes once in a generation!

Scout facts

NAME: Solly March
AGE: 19 (20th July, 1994)
BORN: Eastbourne
POSITION: Midfielder
CLUB: Brighton
FACTS: Made senior debut at 16
Sky Sports Scout Ratings:
0-10 - No hoper
11-20 - Should look elsewhere
21-30 - Might not make it
31-40 - Has work to do
41-50 - Keep an eye on him
51-60 - Great prospect
61-70 - On his way to the top
71-80 - Already World-class
The latest player to be spotlighted is Brighton starlet Solly March.

The scout reports...

We check on a player attracting a lot of attention in the Championship, Solly March has recently broken into the first-team picture at Brighton - and is impressing a lot of on-lookers.

March began at his local club Lewes, and quickly progressed through youth ranks before making his first-team debut by the time he was 17.

But he was quickly attracting attention from a host of Premier League and Championship clubs.

Arsenal, Newcastle, Sunderland and West Ham were all keen on taking March, but it was his Brighton who won the day - the club his father Steve played for as an apprentice.

March penned a three-year deal with Brighton in late 2011. It took March just over 12 months to really find his feet at the AMEX, as he was then pushing for a place in the first team.

Early in 2013, March was included in a number of squads and made the bench for Brighton - but did not feature.

The following season saw him heavily involved pre-season and it has been little surprise that Oscar Garcia has recognised his talent and has brought him into his first-team squad.

And perhaps the teenager is fortunate to be working under such a progressive coach as Spaniard Garcia - given that March's game is certainly leading from the technical aspect.

Standing at over 6ft, March is a truly elegant performer - often played on the wing, but looks perfectly suited to a number '10' role, pulling the strings behind the front-man.

Comfortable on the ball, and with both feet - March has the skill set that you can't really teach but is natural. However, he has shown playing out wide that he is willing to fit into a system.

He has an eye for a pass too and learning when to play it is clearly something Garcia is working on, but he is clearly quickly emerging as a fine young player.

The scout says...

Clearly has a wonderful future ahead of him and he appears to be in the perfect place at the moment.

However, with talent like this it is hard to hide from the Premier League scouts and Brighton will have to work hard to keep hold of this prospect.

The Scout rating...

Shooting: 7 out of 10
Passing: 8 out of 10
Tackling: 6 out of 10
Heading: 6 out of 10
Pace: 7 out of 10
Vision: 8 out of 10
Current ability: 7 out of 10
Potential ability: 10 out of 10
OVERALL SCOUT RATING: 59/80
Current value: £4million
Potential value: £18million

Ssshhh
Solly March is total rubbish and nobody should touch him. The same can be said for his colleague Rohan Ince, also diabolical. If any clubs want these two they should look elsewhere!!! ;)
I bet that just a few days ago you didn't imagine in your wildest dreams you'd be typing those words, let alone getting 20 thumbs up for them?! ;0)
