No they spent £60m in the 17/18 season and £80m in the 18/19 season.

Only £12m recouped from sales.

I think it's all gone rather stale at Brighton, it was probably best they parted company (from both sides) imo.

I wouldn't be shouting from the roof tops that Brighton are a shoe in to get relegated next season as some suggest, just because Houghton is gone either.

The expectations at the club are incremental improvements year and year. The 2019 results suggest that’s not happening so the risk for the club so stick and see what happens first 2 / 3 months next season or twist and bring some be in.

Harsh on CH.... third lowest spenders suggests the expectation should be a little lower. 

I couldn’t name more than 5 players at the club.

Stevie G has got to be the answer after that swashbuckling performance from his team yesterday.

They would be down by November.LOL
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Those "I hope they go down next season" posts are extremely petty and childish its unreal LOL

Brighton a well-run club so there's no lunacy behind the logic. 
What Chris has done with Glenn Murray has been nothing short of incredible and they won twice in the M25 derby, unfortunately it's about the only positives they've had this season.


They need a man much more experienced than Graham Potter if they want to stay up however.

Says £54m and £58m on soccerbase, none of those, transfer sites are entirely accurate. There's another one transfer history site showing €22.5m for Aleš Matějů rather than the £2m he cost. Either way, he was operating on a very low budget and finished around where that budget should.

1. Liverpool (+7) 104 pts
J2. Man City (+0) 98 pts
J2 Watford (+48) 98 pts
4. Crystal Palace (+44) 93 pts
J5 Leicester (+39) 91 pts
J5 West Ham ( +39) 91 pts
7 Bournemouth (+45) 90 pts
8 Newcastle (+44) 89 pts
9 Everton ( +34) 88 pts
J10 Arsenal (+17) 87 pts
J10 Wolves (+40) 87 pts
J10 Cardiff (+53) 87 pts
J13 Chelsea (+13) 85 pts
J13 Burnley (+45) 85 pts
15 Spurs (+13) 84 pts
16 Brighton (+45) 81 pts
17 Southampton (+41) 80 pts
18 Man Utd (+10) 75 pts
19. Fulham ( +48) 74 pts
20 'uddersfield (+52) 68 pts

someone posted up 3 wins from 23. Big risk to stick with a manager that might have a terrible start. 

Southampton and Watford have sacked managers and it hasn't done them any harm. If it goes well the board are geniuses, if it doesn't it's sack the board

Also got them to a cup semi in that time and did enough to keep them up with draws when it counted. 

I've always thought that a poor half a season isn't long enough to sack a manager who's done well for four years before that. Should have enough credit in the bank to work to turn it round during the transfer window. Clubs generally finish close to where they are on the budget list and he achieved that.

Not just at Brighton, but it seems to me that a lot of clubs have developed "Leicester Syndrome".
Leicesters league win seems to raised unachievable expectations within the hierarchy of historically ranked middle to lower level clubs.
Survival in the EPL should be seen as success for Brighton. Look how much money Fulham spent and where they ended up.
 
It could be that he has reached his shelf life at Brighton and a new challange might do him good.
 
Wonder what Stephen Kenny makes of it all ?

Wolves did hold on to McCarthy after a dreadful end to the season and they finished bottom the following season. Interesting to see how Brighton do next season. I like Hughton but let’s be honest the Premier League has really benefited from the modern attacking managers like Nuno, Howe, Hassenhuttl and Garcia. The less of the likes of Pardew, Allardyce, Moyes, Warnock, Hughes, Hodgson and Pulis the better in my eyes.

An excellent manager and one of the sport's true gentlemen, but what impressed me most about Hughton is finding out that he had a regular column in The News Line in the 1970s. What a cool guy!

Was it not the ‘Morning Star’? Either way, much respect!

Probably bad news for Jayson Molumby who Hughton seemed to be a fan of. Hopefully whoever they get in is not afraid of giving young players a chance and likes both Molumby and Connolly.
