I don't think Brighton are any better than they were under Chris Hughton and Shane Duffy should be an automatic first team choice.

How are the green tinted specs fitting? Wink

I was sorry to see Hughton sacked but Potter has them playing good football. They were excellent away against 3rd placed Leicester in the first half of that game and they had a brilliant win against Arsenal. Potter has done well and if they avoid relegation, it'll have been a good season. 

Duffy was very good when he came on for the injured Webster in the Leicester game and deserves to keep his place.

Duffy was solid even though they conceded 3 goals, none in my opinion was his fault. How he is not playing every week is a joke really,  everyone can see it except porter himself. 

Webster has done well for Brighton. Take the green tinted glasses off.

To be fair I dont think Duffy was to blame for any of the goals today but when you see him with the ball to his feet you can see why he's not in the team very often.

Brighton have huge problems in midfield, they need to get some pace and vision in there over the summer. If they can do that it will help Connolly to kick on as well.

Has he? Brighton have been atrocious this season. They've been little more effective in attack and noticeably less stable in defence. They might average more passes per game than they did under Hughton, but they certainly haven't translated that into becoming a stronger team

Atrocious all season? Brighton are a brave, battling club. Yes, they were bad last night and equally bad in other games. All to be expected when playing clubs with big budgets. Last night they were up against the likes of Fernandes (£55m), Podba (£100m), Maguire (£87m) and Wan-Bissaka (£55m). De Gea earns £350,000 a week! Aston Villa splashed £135m on players and are below them. So are West Ham. For some clubs being "atrocious" is a byproduct of survival. Give them a break, rich boy.

Trossard looks a classy player and with a season of the PL under his belt will probably be a big asset to them next season. But they could definitely do with one or two more creative players because outside him they don't appear to have a whole lot.
 
Connolly did as well as he could have expected to do living off the scraps he was given last night. Hopefully the break has helped him as he was looking pretty horribly out of form before that.

Yeah, curious to see (assuming BHA stay up) what happens there.
Would love to see him in the PL but wary he could be mainly on the bench if they do recall him.
Personally, I think he can make that step up.

I agree about Trossard. Brighton look certain to recall Jayson Molumby - and Ben White, a central defender on loan to Leeds who has been a major asset there. Such has been his impact, Brighton have quoted £35m for a permanent switch. Optimistic maybe - but it will impact on Shane Duffy's already tenuous situation. Potter prefers to play out of defence and that's Duffy's big weakness. There's good reason to believe Stephen Kenny would agree with Potter.

Then there's Connolly - I think he'll struggle at EPL level and carve out a career in the Championship. Some people here seem to think Potter should play to suit his Irish duo. That's not going to happen because they're not that good.

I must admit I haven't seen much of Connolly other than his two goals against Spurs (which were brilliant for very different reasons) last night's game, and what he has done with us and u21. What strikes me is his confidence to try and carve out something from nothing.I cant see Long or McGoldrick taking that shot from outside the box last night. He got himself into a few decent positions but the service was poor. I thought his assist against Arsenal was good also. I definitely see more from him than Obafemi at this stage. 

As for Molumby, is he starting most games for Millwall? I see William's started ahead of him last night.

In fairness to Connolly he almost conjured a goal out of nothing last night was living off scraps. Did a decent job but was like pissing against the wind last night. If Brighton got in a few creative players along with White and Molumby back (think both will be starting for them next year (White for Duffy and Molumby for Stephens) to go with Maupay Connolly and Trossard they’d be a force next year maybe even outsiders for a top 10 finish. Potter has done a decent job with a squad that really wouldn’t be suited to his style in the main.

Molumby is arguably one of Millwalls best players just a got a rest last night as will happen with players. Molumby is absolutely perfect for Potter really a ball playing tenacious midfielder they miss a bit of dynamism badly. Could see Molumby replacing Stephens in the next year or so I’d actually go as far as to say I’d be surprised if he wasn’t replacing Stephens next year that’s if Millwall don’t go up. (They probably won’t)

Molumby was rested last night, he starts pretty much every match.

Connolly seems to have a huge array of abilities in his locker. The skill, his pace, dribbling, strength, first touch and shooting are all very impressive. You don't start him on his own up front against United as a progressive manager for the 2nd game in a row as a teenager if you don't think he can hack it at this level. There are barely any strikers who couldve made a big impact in that game the way it was set up for Brighton.

I think he's our best attacking prospect and will have a career in a top league.

Hope he turns out good, he looks decent enough. It's annoying when you see young Welsh players tearing it up for Utd and Chelsea etc and we don't even have one player doing this at the moment. Even Scotland have that Billy Gilmour lad who looks like he's going place.

Connolly starts again...excellent stuff.
Now here's a game where he can flourish and hopefully won't be left to plough a lone furrow.
Maupay on also so he'll have company at least and Brighton have to be looking to secure their PL place in this match.
