  • Mon, 18 Oct 2021 07:00:09 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Some Newcastle fans need to take a look at themselves, Tuchel is not getting the best from Lukaku and Manchester City are under pressure

    To bang on about selections, formations and substitutions just a few days after Newcastle were taken over by a new regime in a move branded as “sportswashing” by some, feels unacceptably callous. And though football fans have no control over who owns their club, they have absolute control over their own behaviour, and the way some have responded to the change in ownership is depressing in the extreme. No one can blame them for celebrating the departure of the despised Mike Ashley, but songs about how rich they are – heard outside St James’ Park on Sunday – are neither edgy nor amusing when the provenance of those riches is rooted in a country with state-sponsored suffering. Football is more than just a game because clubs form a crucial part of their supporters’ identity, a link to the past and future rooted in family and friendship. But important though these things are, they are not more important than basic humanity, and no quantity of signings or trophies can change that. Daniel Harris

  • Sat, 16 Oct 2021 16:31:13 +0000: Winless Norwich rue missed chances in stalemate with Brighton - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Daniel Farke acknowledged Norwich missed the chance to take three points as they had to settle for a draw.

    The Canaries followed up their stalemate at Burnley before the international break with another goalless draw, but it could have been much better for the hosts, with Josh Sargent failing to make the most of an open goal in the 44th minute and Teemu Pukki poking wide in the second half.

  • Fri, 15 Oct 2021 12:33:23 +0000: Norwich v Brighton: match preview - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Norwich are no longer pointless but still appear a way off the mark so far. The international break will have given Daniel Farke extra time to plan a resurgence but he needs his players to start showing up. Recent personal reasons for missing games aside, one-time bright spark Todd Cantwell’s last goal in the Premier League was 21 games ago on 1 January 2020. And while Norwich are predictably struggling, Brighton have confounded expectations, appearing to be this season’s surprise package. Graham Potter will expect a positive result and deservedly so as his side have taken seven points from three matches on the road so far. Tariq Lamptey may also make his long-awaited return after 10 months out. Graham Searles

  • Thu, 14 Oct 2021 23:01:13 +0000: Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Bruce potentially set for his final game at Newcastle, Ranieri begins tough spell at Watford and Guardiola has Sterling decision

    It feels trivial discussing mere football matters when set against the ethical concerns arising from Newcastle’s Saudi takeover, but it feels as if whatever happens on the pitch against Tottenham will accelerate Steve Bruce’s departure. He is unlikely to get much credit if his side record a first league win of the season; instead it will only heighten the sense of “new broom” momentum that would require a bigger-name manager as soon as possible, while defeat would only serve to demonstrate the immediate need for change. It helps Bruce that Newcastle’s first opponents of the new era are a side who have been desperately unconvincing for at least a month, and who could be there for the taking if the hosts get on the front foot early. Defeat for Spurs would intensify the early pressure on Bruce’s counterpart, Nuno Espírito Santo, and heighten the focus on the various aspects of Tottenham’s game that aren’t functioning properly, particularly if Harry Kane remains goalless. It will be a morally queasy occasion but the party atmosphere might just work in Newcastle’s favour, for all the good it will do Bruce. TD

  • Thu, 14 Oct 2021 07:58:00 +0000: Will Daka and Mwepu finally put Zambia on English football’s map? - Brighton & Hove Albion | The Guardian

    Leicester striker and Brighton midfielder backed to shine more than 50 years after two compatriots’ ill-starred Aston Villa stay

    “I’ve had to do things differently because it’s a bit more difficult to expose your players from here,” says Lee Kawanu. “If someone hears about Zambia, first of all they would like to know where it is on the map.”

    More than half a century after Zambia’s Emment Kapengwe and Freddie Mwila became the first African players to sign for Aston Villa, under Tommy Docherty, the arrival of their compatriots Patson Daka and Enock Mwepu in the Premier League this summer set pulses racing among supporters of the national team.
