McGoldrick should have played, as I said before hand.
Brighton look an impressive side.
The free kick that lead to the second goal wasn't a foul.
Their German defender should have seen red in the first half. Fraser was breaking into the box.
I'm not too impressed with Douglas so far, especially when partnered with the very similar Skuse. He slows down the play and gives the ball away a lot.
It was ridiculous how easy it was for Brighton to get behind our midfield. Losing second balls was a bit of a theme yesterday.
We missed Berra, simply for his organisation of the defence. Murphy too, for his height and ability to bully defences and run channels. We needed relief desperately at times yesterday, and we rarely got it, only really when McGoldrick was able to get on the ball and hold it.
Between us and Brighton. Results so far would suggest us.
All of Pitman, McGoldrick and Sears have to play surely, even if one of them is a midfielder. And you also have to incorporate Fraser in there two. Incredibly unluckily I think AMN will be left out again.
Emmanuel was very unlucky not to play, a view that was probably felt by many when they saw Chambers going diving in during the build up to the goal. However I suppose that decision was justified almost with Smith scoring the winner, as he would have been the one to drop out.
Murphy was quiet, apart from his couple of shots from wide right in the first half.
Fraser impressive when he gets the chance to dribble. Can't remember the last time I saw someone set up a goal like that. Wasn't as impressed by Maitland Niles to be honest, felt he didn't show off his pace enough. But I'm sure he'll improve. It's nice to have wingers at long last.
It seems we now have two Cole Skuses. Felt he and the Brentford chap were very similar. Hopefully Bru/Bishop will eventually claim one of those spots back.
