I'm very glad that public opinion seems to be turning against all of these cancellations, especially being pushed by clubs with huge squads.

Time of the month, hun? It was a pretty daft question, even hypothetically. When has Bielsa ever taken on that kind of a squad?

Do they attempt to sell that to English fans? I know it has a weird history, but I can't help thinking most people outside of the clubs couldn't give a fuck.


It’s become well known in recent years as a rivalry, but only on account of its weirdness.


It seems born out of no other clubs giving a fuck about them. So they've got together for a rivalry. But it really does seem to have only been created in the last ten years?????


20 at least, I lived in Brighton 25 years ago and worked in Croydon and its always been there, dampened a bit whilst Brighton were in Limbo at Gillingham etc. , but certainly there and heightened naturally by being in the same division. Its more Leeds v Huddersfield than Leeds v Scum I think

Given the dearth of clubs in the South East of London, don’t you just say you nearest same division club are your ‘biggest rivals’, whomever they are. Palace (of old) had Brighton or Gillingham to choose from, on the basis that some here consider Palace a City of Croydon, not London, club.

Once that’s been established, others - the media mostly - look for some moniker or link and come up with the M23 as rendering them ‘local’.

Having been to Selhurst Park, I'd have guessed going on the length of time to get there that there nearest rivals would be somewhere in the far east of Asia?

my point was more, can any manager rein in the egos you have there nowadays? are manU fucked for the near future, has player power gone so far that it can diminish any team?

the consequence is that the only way to achieve long lasting success is for a manager to build his own squad like pep at man city. even tuchel seems to be struggling with his man management at Chelsea only a year into the job. see also Tottenham. Conte was meant to be the man, no nonsense, sort out the malingerers, but it doesn't seem to be working there either.

Oh, and on the brightom/palace thing in my first year at uni (now 30 years ago) I was next door to a sanctimonious Christian who was a Brighton fan and even he hated palace. asked why I think he said something about an incident that happened in the early 80's.

They really go for it to an extent that’s almost parody. Daughter reports hundreds of cops outside her place near Brighton station before the game. Horses, riot shields, all that.

I think both sets of fans need to do something to suggest that they’re capable of a convincing impression of following a proper team. It’s a pantomime performance.

I think that the 'rivalry' between the 2 clubs goes back to the 70's.

Malcolm Allison has something to do with it maybe?

That or I am going senile

The club... Didn't. We had 11 senior players available for Man City and 9 for Arsenal and 1 covid case.

Based on the Arsenal v Spurs decision we could have had both postponed.

As I said, in the same circumstances. We aren't involved in cups, Europe or the chase for Europe. I will not be misquoted!!!

Burnley have just requested postponement of their home game against Watford tomorrow. When is this going to end ? We just get on with it. I also read yesterday that we have given more teenagers their debut in this season ( eight ) than any other side in Premier League history. That says a lot for us.

Nothing worse than entitled managers whining about their lot. Tuchel being the latest. Tone deaf as fuck.

I’m torn between wanting Brighton to lose every game and wanting them to do well enough that a proper club comes in for Potter, and then next season they lose every game and get relegated.

There you go again with your "to the death" rivalry with Devi over who can most dislike their local club. Brighton and Palace are like Huddersfield - best ignored.
