Hyypia: We stuck to our plan

Sami Hyypia was pleased with his side's reaction to going 1-0 down

Sami Hyypia was pleased with his side's reaction to going 1-0 down

First published in Sport by

Sami Hyypia has praised Albion for sticking to their gameplan – despite falling behind.

The Seagulls staged a rare fightback to come from a goal down and beat Bolton today.

Strikes from Craig Mackail-Smith and Joao Teixeira secured a 2-1 success after Matt Mills had opened the scoring for Bolton on 25 minutes.

Mackail-Smith hit the bar in the 12 minutes for which Albion trailed.

Hyypia said: “It was just 1-0. We had plenty of time to come back.

“We don’t need to panic. We have a gameplan and our gameplan is to score goals.

“If the opponents score and your gameplan is to score goals and you score at least one, then you get one point.

“The gameplan wasn’t any different when they scored.”

Hyypia admitted Albion to battle for their points as they followed up a 2-0 midweek success at Leeds.

He added: “I felt that maybe the performance wasn’t the same as the previous game at Leeds.

“But we did the thing we have done in every game – battle.

“Then, on the ball, we know we have the quality to hurt teams.”

2 weeks ago I went home despondent and very doubtful as to wether the board would secure the players who could give us the sort of football, Seagulls Fans wanted to see, regardless as to whether we might or might not reach the play-offs or better.
I want to put on record that I saw exactly what I wanted today with the new players really setting the example and the older ones giving their all.
I think we should have won about 5-3 but 2-1 is fine.
I apoloogise for doubting the board and I hope the crowds come back soon

Well confessed. To be honest after the first couple of games I could not see any method or purpose (or indeed game plan) in our performance. Now, with two or three strategic additions we have been transformed playing with verve and swagger. After a very dull season last year, the beautiful game is back.

Very good performance today. Much improved on our first home game. I know we can only beat what's in front of us, but Leeds are a poor team and so are Bolton. They're both in the bottom 4 and I expect them to stay there or thereabouts all season.

We still need a top striker to compete against the better teams in the division. Hopefully 2 wins will help attract the type of player we all want to see.

A lot of the missing fans today are on holiday, At least six fans in my row alone are on holiday.
Come the end of September we will be back to 27-28k attendance.
The local derby of Ipswich-Norwich only had slightly more than us.
I'm not sure about your 5-3 result, if The Bolton forwards had not been so wayward we could have lost 4-2, even though we had the most possession.
Having said all that, when the team gels we will be a force to reckon with.
Right that's that, I'm now donning my tin hat and waiting for the flack.

Yep agree. Nice not to at long last finish 1-1 with Bolton. They did have some great chances to be fair.

Great point about you hope fans come back soon.Very poor turn out today as anyone that was really there could see.Everton and Saints both after solly and 4 prem-league clubs already watching Tex and Holla.Not one club after Dunk or JFC now why would that be? We made six offers to go on phone-in after the game but was told we could not talk and Dunk or JFC for some reason.But they was happy to have his brother on there with a fake name.

Rubbish how many saves did both Bolton keepers make between them compared to how many DS had to make. We also had a number of shots just off target and to quote it could have been 4-2 to Bolton b_ll__ks I dont know what game you were watching

The troll in question I believe is called 100% Pony or something similar.
As Lord of the Trolls I feel it is your duty to punish him 100%.
You shouldn't have any trouble identifying him, He hangs around with scouts from other clubs who always come to the Amex specifically not to look at Our Lewis or JFC.
I trust you will put him 100% right

I want to put on record that I saw exactly what I wanted today with the new players really setting the example and the older ones giving their all. I think we should have won about 5-3 but 2-1 is fine. I apoloogise for doubting the board and I hope the crowds come back soon[/p][/quote]I think crowds are slightly down due to it bring August and many families are away on holiday. I'm sure come mud September we'll be knocking on 28000 again. Plus BW only brought 400 although when they scored it sounded like 4!!!![/p][/quote]Wish I proof read my post!!!

Only problem Hyypia spells his HYYPIA . Does that mean you meant to say I Hapyy ? Good thought of yours either way.

Thanks Ballantrrae....yes as somebody else pointed out the correct spelling & I just thought I was being clever!

Nice idea anyway! I'm happy the way things are shaping up. Onwards & upwards hopefully.

On a slightly different note I was surprised to see Buckley in the line up v M U this afternoon, & then subbed by Bridders!
