With Brighton now entering a two week winter break, here’s a collection of recent Albion related articles for you to read to fill those hours during that period whilst you’re longing for the next Albion game.
Anyone who regularly followed Zonal Marking will know Michael Cox knows his football. So when he writes about the Albion it’s always worth reading. His latest piece written with Roashane Thomas involving our fair clubs is from the recent draw with West Ham and is an error by error account of how West Ham threw away their lead against Brighton.
And his synopsis of the match against Watford is also very much worth reading.
Subsequent to that draw Paul Doyle from the Guardian wrote a very positive piece about the work Graham Potter is doing at the club, including the wonderful quote: “They [Brighton] are four points below Hodgson’s Palace but, all things considered, in a much better place.”
Also subsequent to the draw at West Ham was this piece by Sam Dean in The Telegraph focusing on how Glenn Murray is seemingly back in favour at Brighton. After his equaliser against West Ham. Glenn is the man of the moment, with in the same week Graham Potter admitting that he may have underused Murray so far this season.
Back to the Athletic there was an interesting wide ranging interview by Andy Naylor with Brighton’s Technical director Dan Ashworth. In which he takes us through his thoughts on England, B teams, homegrown quotas and making Brighton a top-10 Premier League club.
And there’s also a slightly older interview, this time with Albion’s Assistant manager Billy Reid in the Daily Record that’s worth a read. An interview which includes news of a film cameo in a film featuring at Cannes film festival.
Also, if you missed it there has been plenty of new content from Tweeting Seagull Towers recently to keep you busy, including my pieces defending football supporters ignorance and asking whether Brighton are paying the price for too much long term thinking?
