Performance Issues...

It is also said that if you throw enough mud at the wall, some will stick…it didn’t!

Ian Holloway said it best “Our luck was so bad we could fall into a barrel of boobs and come out sucking our thumbs”

Brighton were looking at South Saxons as the beginning of the reversal of fortune needed to capture the success of last season. Once the play commenced it was apparent that we were going to be seeing a lot of possession and were immediately the aggressor of the two sides, all the early chances fell to Brighton, however in the final third, to say that we were not getting the rub of the green would be putting it mildly…we couldn’t even see the green!

The second half started with more of the same. Unfortunately, the harder we tried the more rushed, the more we rushed, the more possession we turned over. This eventually led to an attack down the left flank where inexplicably the South Saxons winger ran unopposed for 35 yards and slotted home from close range.

With 7 mins to go, Brighton brought on a kicking back to pile on the pressure and rescue a point. Even with the added men upfront and consistent pressure, Brighton couldn’t get the chance that had eluded us all game. Final whistle…
