Andrea Orlandi watches a first-half chance go wide

Andrea Orlandi watches a first-half chance go wide

Oscar Garcia tonight praised Albion’s patience in their win over Yeovil.

But he admitted they could have made life easier for themselves.

The Seagulls had to wait until the 78th minute before making the breakthrough in a 2-0 success.

Their reward was a place in the top six overnight.

Albion’s head coach recognised it was a nervous night.

He said: “We knew we needed to be patient. We knew that, in the second half, we would find more spaces and create chances.

“But the game could have been easier for us if we had taken our chances in the first half.

“We had two clear chances but we didn’t take them.

“When you don’t score in a game like this, it is not easy to be patient.”

Oscar had words of support for Andrea Orlandi, who missed those two chances on an otherwise impressive return after almost two months out.

He added: "It is not easy to play again because he was out for a long time but we thought he would be fit enough to play and he did his job."

Well we got the win with a fluke of a goal and got back in the playoffs but another feeble performance against what is basically a non league outfit. There was nothing about us tonight that suggested we deserve, want or are good enough to get to the prem and stay there. There is a malaise about us that simply won't go away, Oscar has become tedious to say the least, players like Orlandi are flakey and disinterested most of the time. It's time to get rid of the dead weights that are dragging this club down and there are quite a number of them, sadly.

Uninterested. You mean uninterested, not disinterested. The only people at the ground who should be disinterested are the four officials.

Quite why a Palarse fan has to come on here is beyond me but that is mental health for you.
To the point of the article there is no way Andrea could be fully fit tonight and taking into account how long he has been out I thought he played quite well. He had two chances that he would normally have taken but that sharpness was missing and that is not his fault. What he, CMS and Will Hoskins need is a good pre season and with that OG will have plenty of options. Who knows we may even play two up front at home ! The retained list could be interesting. Who would you let go ?

Fair enough, you can nit pick over the minor details of the English language, meanwhile the rest of us will hold the inquest into why we performed so diabolically, yet again, against a team who have even less chance of doing something noteworthy in the game than us.

My point is, if you're going to troll, at least do it with some quality. You're enough of a crashing bore as it is.

Serious question: how tedious and empty are you own club's websites that you have to come here and pretend (badly) to be an Albion fan to get some recognition?

Everyone seems to be forgetting that this was a must win for Ydeovil. No I do not think they were a league one side because they have spent a season in the championship. They have turned over very good sides and were unlucky to lose against Brighton, if they had not hit the crossbar then 2 goals would have done us.
Yeovil are a league one side now and like wolves last season, we have placed them there.

Let's not forget they held Leicester to a creditable 1-1 draw recently and nearly won the game except for a late equaliser. Anyone can beat anyone in this division. Poorish Championship side at the worst. Their fans gave them good support tonight and the managers comments about our fans at the end of the game were bang on and very respectful.

Im gona try and stay nice to you Ex-pat because i do believe you really are a fan of the club now.Im sorry that was dire again tonight but we have the 3 points.Even i had a tear in my eye tonight as we said good-bye to the players for another season and we saw them with their kids.I really do love that club.
TBH I thought we played okay tonight. Yeovil were, as the cliché goes, fighting for their lives, and I don't think they are the worst team in the division by any means, despite their position. Ayling (I think was his name) looked very useful.

We created a LOT of chances, and if Orlandi hadn't been ring rusty we would almost certainly have been 1 or 2 goals to the good by half time, at which point the players AND fans could have relaxed.

Uninterested. You mean uninterested, not disinterested. The only people at the ground who should be disinterested are the four officials.
Fair enough, you can nit pick over the minor details of the English language, meanwhile the rest of us will hold the inquest into why we performed so diabolically, yet again, against a team who have even less chance of doing something noteworthy in the game than us.
We can pick hole's , we can pick individual's out for their lack of performance.
But at the end of the night, we are still in the play-off's. Lets just wait until 17.00
to see if we are still in the play-off's. Richard.

As you are clearly a genuine fan I will answer you directly.

I am not 'aiming' anything at anyone.... but I am not alone in becoming weary of endless. meaningless exchanges with posters who are no friend of the Albion.

I have to say I agree with you Brightonup. I too have no problem with Vegas and Arnie's football content, but they do feed the trolls consistently. Perhaps they are attention seekers too. It means you have to scroll past a lot of trash to get to the decent posts.

Yes, some people never miss an opportunity to be seen in print. They usually explain something to the wind-up merchant, that is already glaringly obvious to everyone, including the WUM.
They do this in a condescending manner, showing off their own superiority and greater knowledge. This usually results in a brainless exchange of comments which can be annoying to avoid.
Some people should leave their ego at home.

My point is, if you're going to troll, at least do it with some quality. You're enough of a crashing bore as it is.

Serious question: how tedious and empty are you own club's websites that you have to come here and pretend (badly) to be an Albion fan to get some recognition?

Ringtone is the mildy-amusing village idiot, Freeloaders the aggressor, but you... I just don't see where your p!ss-weak brand of trolling really fits in.
You need to stop thinking that everyone else is a troll and start looking at the uncomfortable truths within the club that others can see but you can't or won't. You'll feel a lot better for it once you do.
Why does websites attract pond life like you Norfolk boy!! Never heard of you before and hope we don't again unless its a sensible debate. Is it time for you to play with the traffic

I don't want to enter into a debate with you about this Arnie. I suspect it would get us nowhere. With respect, I ask you to read between the lines. I am not always sure you recognise irony when you see it, as in the case of the post to which you were innocently replying.
Both Gordongull and Clorsonseagull are making valid points - and I think you are more able to trust the comments of fellow supporters rather than people who are trying (dare I say sometimes succeeding) - to make you look foolish. I am sorry to say it, but that's the truth. Please read between the lines before replying to posts......

Freeloaders said it was dire, I said I thought it was okay. What is there to read between the lines there?

Compare the amount of replies I have given in trying to engage Freeloaders with the amount of comments you write saying "I smell a troll" or trying to get people to stop interacting. I suggest they're not far away from each other.

But okay, if you don't want to debate then we'll call it quits. However, if I think a post is genuinely worth replying to then I will do. Freeloaders, for all his faults, is not subtle. He says what he means. Ringtone is of a different type and so I don't bother with him (and Norfolk is just rubbish), but Freeloaders, deep down, is a Brighton fan, and surely, if I can get him talking about the club without his resorting to insults then we all win?

In the meantime just scroll through everything I post if it makes you happier.

TBH I thought we played okay tonight. Yeovil were, as the cliché goes, fighting for their lives, and I don't think they are the worst team in the division by any means, despite their position. Ayling (I think was his name) looked very useful.

We created a LOT of chances, and if Orlandi hadn't been ring rusty we would almost certainly have been 1 or 2 goals to the good by half time, at which point the players AND fans could have relaxed.
One final comment Arnie. Sorry, I cannot resist.
A major difference of opinion between us derives from the fact that you seem to take the troll's comments at face value - while I say he is taking the rip - and you fail to notice..
'Even I had a tear in my eye tonight as we said good-bye to the players for another season and saw them with their kids' That's either Mills and Boon or irony... but you take the option of gracing posts which in my opinion you misinterpret as 'genuinely worth replying to' with a serious comment.
I see it as a wind up - and believe you're the object of that fishing.
Still, we can both agree on one thing . As you say - no one could possibly mistake us for the same person LOL.
I shall leave it at that; I never intended to curb your freedom - and I shall prepare for more of the same stuff.
