Brighton v West Ham - Official Match Thread

Post by Taansend » Tue Oct 02, 2018 3:49 pm

West Ham have only ever beaten Brighton ONCE in top flight football.

Once..

March 5th 1983. Goals from Tony Cottee & Alan Dickens completed a 2-1 comeback win in front of 16,850 fans at Upton Park.

Our total record against Brighton is 18 wins, 17 losses & 14 draws.

We played them 16 times between 1903 & 1914, then twice in 1923, twice in 1933 & then had a gap of forty five years before meeting them again in 1978.

They spanked us twice last season, winning 3 nil at our ground (on a Friday in October :( ) in one of the worst performances I can remember seeing us in recent years, then 3-1 at their place in February.

They ended up 15th last season, two points & two places below us. They're also 15th at the moment, just below us, with five points and their only win was a 3-2 thriller at home to Man Utd.

They've won one, lost one & drawn one at The Amex and all three away teams scored two goals each. So as long as we only let in one goal we're definite winners :D

I can't see Pellegrini changing the team at all so.....

Flappyhandski
Zab Doowop General Masuaku
Noble Rice Obiang
Yarm Arnie Anderson

I was sure we were going to beat Chelsea & pretty certain we were going to draw with Man Utd so I'm saying nowt about this game, other than to say I don't think I'll be unhappy with the result.

On a side note I recently bought some jeans at Primark in Brighton. They're really fucking tight on the legs & loose around the waist. The material seems stretchy too. Fucking weird.

Win at Everton, draw with Chelsea beat Manure, Euphoria, lose to Brighton.

It`s the West Ham way.

Not really, easy win clean sheet.

This will be more of a test for me than the other games.
Brighton are big strong direct and physical, let’s see how our new boys to the premier cope with that.

Draw for me.

I voted draw mate and that won't be a bad result either. . . . . we're starting to look like a team.

The same team again will be really good following his early season tinkering while he found his best 11.

A very winnable game but it will need Diop and Anderson to start showing form close to their transfer fees.
We may edge posession and the opening goal may be decisive.
