  1. play a strong team that makes our chances so much better. Its about time we won some silverwareeven if its the carling cup.These small minnows up there game when they play ppremier league clubs. We have a lot of depth now more than any other time in two years.
    Should see an exciting game dont underate brighton,they are on a roll.

  2. I think that the super seagulls may give you a little more than a run for your money at the Amex – Come on the stripes!!!

  3. We should play a strong team here considering that we’re not in Europe!. Should defeat them easily enough but must not take them for granted as they’ll be determined to put one over us!

    Liverpool FC is still one big scalp to have!
