Direct quote shown in the Argus a couple of days ago - Boss Chris Hughton confirmed this morning: "Bruno's fine." Clearly 100% untrue. Dress it up how you like you cannot believe a word Houghton says. Total waste of time getting quotes from him.

do not often say this but hang your heads in shame---difficult game but if we are contenders for Premiership we should have at least got a point---only started to play when Woods scored. Really Really disappointed. Only luck for us is other results--but no excuse for our performance. March should have been on far earlier--CH made a blunder there IMO.

Leeds were missing several key players and, to be frank, are little more than average at best. But, of course, what do we do? Sit back and do nothing until we fall a goal behind and then fail to take the few chances we do create.

Watched Forest against Derby earlier today. Quite honestly, any team that loses 3-0 to that shower of s***e doesn't deserve to go up.

Better hope that Huddersfield have hit the wall because if we need to pick up more than a point or two from our remaining four away games then we're in trouble. The euphoria of seeing them crushed at Bristol City last night didn't last too long, did it?

The Writing is on the Wall 7:28pm Sat 18 Mar 17
In big games, big players have show their class. Knockheart was again completely absent. He needs to be dropped for the good of the team. Tomori had a decent game, apart form his reckless lunge for the penalty. Best player was Kayal. Murray showing his age, perhaps he should put in less time in the hair transplant clinic and more on the training field. What exactly is the point of Akpom. Totally useless. Can we swap him for his mate Abraham.
Score: 4
Hornankey Replying The Writing is on the Wall 7:37pm Sat 18 Mar 17
Knocky has done well for us this season but it is clear that he only turns it on against weaker opposition. He could not cut it in the Premiership with Leicester and we can see why.

Couldn't agree more. At Huddersfield, we were on the back foot from the first 30 seconds when Bruno got booked. We tried to protect a one-goal lead against Newcastle and failed. Today, we showed absolutely no ambition until we went 1-0 down. We've had a few lucky results away from home this season (Birmingham and Fulham to name but two). This is Hughton's way. That's why he starts Skalak ahead of March. Let's just hope it works in our last four away games! The home games look harder now too than they did a few weeks ago. Blackburn, Birmingham and Bristol City are all fighting for their lives...and picking up points when least expected. Every game from now on is a cup final for someone. Hopefully, ourselves included.

Let's not be too negative. Are we saying none of the teams are good enough to go up then coz Newcastle and Huddersfield have all be beaten badly this season. We are still the only team to have lost the fewest games. Yes I agree that we have failed to ascert ourselves on the HT, NU and now LU, but that doesn't mean we haven't got the game. We are 2nd on 77 points. It will be what it will be and I'm fed up with the fans loving the 3 points and blasting The players and management when we lose. Other than the capitulation against Huddersfield we haven't played badly all season. 2 home games now and 6 points and we are still on track.

Agreed mate, it's remarkable how the rats come scuttling out of the sewers when we drop a game. But of course, they're not Albion fans after all. Not to worry, we'll still have the last laugh at the end of the season and they can all crawl back into their rat-holes. 👍👍

Basic defending not doing enough to cut out cross for 1st goal got passed 3 players down the left Stockdale should of come for cross,poor challenge for 2nd.Negative from the start though and March needs to start every game if we want to go up Skalak is not good enough ,positivity from the start Hughton otherwise it will cost us its in your hands

Chris Hughton should take full responsibility for this result. Once again Brighton does nothing until they go behind which has been a constant theme this season and it's the manager who's instructing his team to play like this. Hughton never uses substitutes when Brighton are drawing in order to try and make a breakthrough but waits until the opposition scores. He always shuts the door after the horse has bolted. I don't know what he's thinking by playing that useless Tomori. What has the idiot contributed? Scored an own goal against Lincoln, headed the ball into his net instead of heading off the line and now concedes a penalty. Hughton just doesn't see what a liability he is. Hughton sticks with the same line up that's just not cutting it and he better change it quickly otherwise Brighton will be caught by both Huddersfield and Leeds and possibly Reading. March and Hemed should start games and Hughton should NEVER play Tomori again.

Really ? Firstly his surname is Wood not Woods. Secondly, if he was truly a class act he'd have continued playing in the premiership after Wednesday came down, but thirdly and more concerning if you think at this stage in the season we've played our last hard match you clearly don't understand the game. They will ALL be hard games especially against those currently in the bottom 6.
