Greer: We've done nothing yet at Albion

Gordon Greer has urged Albion to stay grounded as they face four games which will shape their season.

The Seagulls are only outside the top six on goal difference as they go to Huddersfield tomorrow.

Victory would be their third in succession and extend their unbeaten run to five games.

Hopes are sky high among Seagulls fans after a 3-0 win over Charlton took their side temporarily into a play-off place.

But Greer has warned things can turn quickly if they take their eye off the ball.

The Seagulls skipper said: “We’ve done nothing so far. That was a great win for us and a good performance.

“But a couple of weeks ago it was all about disappointing results. There are so many ups and downs in football – and we know that.”

Greer’s defensive sidekick Matt Upson is a major doubt for the Huddersfield game as he struggles with hip, knee and ankle problems.

Upson had not yet been ruled out last night but will be assessed today before the trip north.

Tomasz Kuszczak returns in goal after missing the Charlton game through illness and Stephen Ward is also fit after an ankle injury.

Will Buckley, whose two goals secured victory at Huddersfield last season, has worked under the medical team’s supervision as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Huddersfield, missing banned defenders Peter Clarke and Joel Lynch as well as injured top scorer James Vaughan, have been told a first win in ten games will all but kill off any relegation fears.

Midfielder Adam Clayton said: “I believe four more points will see us safe.”

I think the skipper is spot on here.

We have to play with the mentality that Reading will win all 4 of their remaining games.
If we can do the same and knock a few more goals in then hopefully we will make it.

If Reading win their last 4 then the possibilty is that Wigan will miss out... They both have far harder tests than the Albion and we can have no excuses if we slip up - but we won't...!!! UTA.

Too right. Tbh I always scroll past the predictable gloom-mongers, thickies and trolls after a defeat anyway but it's irritating nonetheless.

we have a great chance to reach and triumph in the playoffs. Although we appear to have an easier run-in than our rivals we must not think it will be easier. Huddersfield will be just as hard as if we were playing a top half team. We need to be focused and have a grim determination to get the job done.
Oscar will ensure we're ready. We may even need a little luck. UTA

'we've done nothing yet,' really Gordon, I think the lads have acheived a lot when taking all things into consideration, and maybe a tad more that could have been rightfully expected.
When the dust finally settles on this season and we look all the way back to the Poyet saga, and our final finishing place, what ever that might be, and then consider all that happened in between I fail to see how anyone can say that the club didn't have a good year.

A lot of good has come from the current season, not least of all the emergence of the DS lads. There are those in the world of business that clearly see Brighton as a good investment and have backed their opinion with money, a new shirt deal and the sale of the naming rights to our new facility.

Oscar might have been a little too cautious this year in his approach to matches, something we can't accuse him of now, but I think that there might have been a level of self preservation in his decisions. It would have done the club, and Oscar, real harm had he not cemented us firmly in the top ten prior to thinking about making a challenge. As the new guy, with little experience in either the English game or the transfer market, Oscar couldn't risk us being in the bottom ten, the shouts of, 'failure,' would have echoed around every inch of the Amex. As it is Oscar has kept us in the mix for the whole season, and only now does he have the resources to be more daring with his line ups.

Our cup run was exciting, whilst it lasted, and it brought in some good money for the club's coffers. The purchase of Stephens is starting to look like a very smart move by the club and even tho we didn't want to sell Bridcutt, that sale set a new record for us regarding price and in terms of what he gave us it seems we have lost nothing by him going.

'we've done nothing yet,' nah we've done a lot and there is possibly yet more to come.

Yep a tough game coming up, but then when there are only four matches left they are all tough. You are obviously right in that we must continue to play what is now our game, more pace, better movement off and on the ball and convert some of our chances. We might have been a tad fortunate in the timing of our match against Leicester, but the last four clubs we have to play couldn't meet us at a worse time, things are starting to click for us.
I think Huddersield will try and put on a good show tomorrow but by the time of the final whistle, our new found form should ensure that we come home with three points. We just might deliver a master class tomorrow and take this game at a canter, if Hudds come out with a desire to win rather than just hoping for a point..

I think what Gordon means is, we have got this far but if we fail then it will be for nothing. All things considered we have done very well but it will count for nothing if we blow it now.
I'm sure Oscar will impress this on everyone concerned and Gordon is doing his captain bit.
I still feel confident about this season. Next season, whichever league we're in will be even better. UTA

Hi JG.
I guess it all depends on what, 'it,' is.
Is, 'it,' making the playoffs and if we do, will there be a new, 'it,' promotion. The point that I was making is, even if we fail, then it will NOT have all been for nothing as so much good has come from this year.
I understand what Greer is saying, in terms of the playoffs, we haven't done anything yet because there are still four matches to go, but should we not make, 'it,' then I would hope that the players and fans a like will not consider the season as a failed one as it really isn't.

I generally agree with what you have said, our run in could have been a lot worse, but would you not agree that at this time of the year it is quite common for the lower placed teams to get a result here and there. On paper we should win all our remaining matches, including the one against Forest as we are in form Forest are not, but who ever won a match on paper and had the 3 points added to their total.
Yes I fully expect us to beat Huddersfield but if by chance we didn't, well it's, 'that,' time of the year when anything can happen and often does, Man City V Sunderland and Everton V Palace, need I say more?

I think we are in a very lucky position ,Huddersfield as we know have lynch ,Clarke and Vaughan missing ,Wells apparently looks like Leo did a short while back ,with little service of quality ,the Terriers fans are hacked off with Mark Robbins ,after no wins in nine,and point out the lack of support when they go one down ,plus although mathematically they are not safe ,their fans at least cant see themselves being caught !.
The Blackpool game see`s them in dire form ,and not hoping for anything from their visit to The Amex . And by Monday night Yeovil may have nothing to play for ,so hopefully an easier game than if they were still in with a shout of survival .
And the Forest game could be the same ,if they fail to pick up max points in every game before our visit ,they may be thinking of their hols !. UTA

Don't fall into the trap of believing that Huddersfield's suspensions and recent form will give us an easy three points tomorrow.

This is the time of year when the tables are often turned...just look at last night's two PL results.

Defeat for The Terriers will drag them into the relegation mire so they'll be desperate to take something off us.

I think this is the toughest of our four remaining games, because the Forest players will probably be on their summer holidays by the time we play them. Get three points from this one and we'll have a great chance of grabbing sixth place which, to be honest, is more than I could have dreamed of two weeks ago. UTA!

But in the mean time lose in play off final that will be a great season..were getting there slowly maybe another 2 seasons with all the right type of players in place so when we do go up we'll just need mayby just a couple of additions.....then stay there...

The purchase of Stephens is starting to look like a very smart move by the club and even tho we didn't want to sell Bridcutt, that sale set a new record for us regarding price and in terms of what he gave us it seems we have lost nothing by him going.

'we've done nothing yet,' nah we've done a lot and there is possibly yet more to come.

Best post I have read on here in along while totally agree about Stephens seems like a great buy fitting in really nicely, always takes time to get used to playing with a new team, I don't miss Bridcutt now if I'm honest, be ironic if we go one way and they come down,
Onwards and upwards
Up the Albion!!!!

yes but Old Gull he knows, that we know, that he is not at the matches, it's part of the game he plays. What he offers is what he thinks he should offer in his guise as a fan, he is trying to be the typical away supporter every other week, he is role playing. The person, 'behind,' Ring Tone is not real, not in the way you and I are behind our screen names. 'Ringtone,' is a character created by a non football fan who enjoys what he is doing, he enjoys mentally living the life of a fan with out the heartbreak that so many actual fans go thru.

found this on the Barca site

Jonathan Dos Santos will undergo surgery on November 5th to deal with the cruciate ligament injury he suffered in training this week and is expected to be out for up to six months, according to the Clubs medical services.

On that basis he is only just coming back from a long layoff.
Matches the profile of many of our signings in recent times.

The surgery took place in November, so that would be some 8 months before the next season gets going, and we are not looking to buy this player, a season long loan is what we are after. My guess would be that a clause would be added to the loan deal that would allow us to send him back without penalty.

With four games to go, we can't finish lower than 14th, so that is something.
The 'nothing yet', Gordon refers to is a top six finish, which will be seen as successful whatever happens in the play-offs.
Our record against the teams currently occupying 1-6 is good enough to suggest that we have a great chance of winning promotion if we are involved.
As Captain, Gordon is saying that while all of this is within our capabilities, it is not going to happen if there is any distraction from the single-minded determination and resolve which will be required.
There is a fairly widely held opinion that while B&HA as a club might be 'Premier League Ready', the team is some way off. This is not a relevant part of the promotion equation. The difficult part is getting there and the window of opportunity might not be there every season. We are in a position of strength based on league position, quality players playing well, and momentum. Some of those players vital to a successful campaign will probably be playing elsewhere next season, and could be difficult to replace.
What I am trying to say is you can't choose when to go up to the top flight, you've got to take the opportunity when it arises, and if it does happen, you do what is necessary to stay there.
One or two unlikely teams are gaining a foothold in the Premier League.
If they can do it , so can we.

The 'nothing yet', Gordon refers to is a top six finish, which will be seen as successful whatever happens in the play-offs.
Our record against the teams currently occupying 1-6 is good enough to suggest that we have a great chance of winning promotion if we are involved.
As Captain, Gordon is saying that while all of this is within our capabilities, it is not going to happen if there is any distraction from the single-minded determination and resolve which will be required.
There is a fairly widely held opinion that while B&HA as a club might be 'Premier League Ready', the team is some way off. This is not a relevant part of the promotion equation. The difficult part is getting there and the window of opportunity might not be there every season. We are in a position of strength based on league position, quality players playing well, and momentum. Some of those players vital to a successful campaign will probably be playing elsewhere next season, and could be difficult to replace.
What I am trying to say is you can't choose when to go up to the top flight, you've got to take the opportunity when it arises, and if it does happen, you do what is necessary to stay there.
One or two unlikely teams are gaining a foothold in the Premier League.
If they can do it , so can we.
Bang on the money if you dont mind my saying Gordongull .All our top players would likely sign new contracts if we got promoted ,plus ,as Jesse said himself ,he could see himself on a season long loan with us in that event ,plus the 60+ million for new acquisitions ,along with everything else that makes us an attractive proposition .Grab any chance of it with both hands !.

If we are on top of our game we win 0-3. Huddersfield will be without two regular starting players, plus other guys that are injured, that has to be an issue for them. We will probably also start with two changes but one, TK in goal, would be seen as a bonus for us and Dunk is a capable stand in for Upson.
Huddersfield are not scoring goals, we are, and they are on a long losing streak, we are not. We will have Kaz, Stephens, Ulloa, Lingard and Solly that are all capable of scoring goals, Huddersfield will have nowhere near that amount of fire power. Our bench will also be stronger than that of the home team.

I said, 0-3, Tug could be right, we might get a bunch of goals.

That's right Tug, and another £60m if you go straight back down.
Could be a lot of fun being a yo-yo club on that kind of money:)

Hi Vegas ,i would settle for an Albion 3-0 scoreline ,and i think it will be provided Oscar stays with the same attacking set up of late ,i get the impression from their fans they may park the bus as a point would suit them ,but if we score nice and early ,it will be hard to see us not putting the game way out of reach .

'we've done nothing yet,' really Gordon, I think the lads have acheived a lot when taking all things into consideration, and maybe a tad more that could have been rightfully expected.
When the dust finally settles on this season and we look all the way back to the Poyet saga, and our final finishing place, what ever that might be, and then consider all that happened in between I fail to see how anyone can say that the club didn't have a good year.

A lot of good has come from the current season, not least of all the emergence of the DS lads. There are those in the world of business that clearly see Brighton as a good investment and have backed their opinion with money, a new shirt deal and the sale of the naming rights to our new facility.

Oscar might have been a little too cautious this year in his approach to matches, something we can't accuse him of now, but I think that there might have been a level of self preservation in his decisions. It would have done the club, and Oscar, real harm had he not cemented us firmly in the top ten prior to thinking about making a challenge. As the new guy, with little experience in either the English game or the transfer market, Oscar couldn't risk us being in the bottom ten, the shouts of, 'failure,' would have echoed around every inch of the Amex. As it is Oscar has kept us in the mix for the whole season, and only now does he have the resources to be more daring with his line ups.

Our cup run was exciting, whilst it lasted, and it brought in some good money for the club's coffers. The purchase of Stephens is starting to look like a very smart move by the club and even tho we didn't want to sell Bridcutt, that sale set a new record for us regarding price and in terms of what he gave us it seems we have lost nothing by him going.

'we've done nothing yet,' nah we've done a lot and there is possibly yet more to come.
What a load of garbage

Are you Barber in disguise, are you Barber in disguise.

So easy to pontificate from afar when you never go to any games, what are you getting out of this?
What are YOU getting out of it?
gave you a thumbs up Arnie, mate

In answer to the question I am getting peeded off with positive trolls.

Too much of a good thing makes you sick, you know what i mean.
Ringtone

Have you got a phd in being a idiot your posts are a joke slagging someone off for putting a great post on here, you should think before you post,
See you at Huddersfield shall I don't think so!!
You talk out your ring pei-e !!
Muppet!!
I am up here already, a nice lttle place called birkby, a few of the boys are going out later, keep you posted.
Jeff ignore the Total Ring

I love the way he pretends that he attends matches.
He must be really depressed with our recent form, it makes it harder for him to complain when we are winning.

Give 'em a cheer for me, I am working tomorrow
UTA
yes but Old Gull he knows, that we know, that he is not at the matches, it's part of the game he plays. What he offers is what he thinks he should offer in his guise as a fan, he is trying to be the typical away supporter every other week, he is role playing. The person, 'behind,' Ring Tone is not real, not in the way you and I are behind our screen names. 'Ringtone,' is a character created by a non football fan who enjoys what he is doing, he enjoys mentally living the life of a fan with out the heartbreak that so many actual fans go thru.
I think you are probably right tbh. Hang on, that means he doesn't have a pulse?! Poor Ringpiece.
