Welcome to Sussex, Oscar

June 26, 2013

Oscar has landed at Falmer

So, after an epic drama worthy of Tolstoy himself, here we are now, Poyet has been seen off (with the far more sympathetic figure of Mauricio Taricco leaving in his wake) and Brighton have appointed Óscar García Junyent, fresh from winning the Israeli domestic league with Maccabi Tel Aviv.

I’m reasonably happy with how things have panned out, after missing such a horrible end to last season, and the embarrassment of Poyet’s drawn out sacking, it really feels like a new page has been turned in the Albion history book. Tony Bloom has come out of this a lot stronger in the eyes of most Stripes fans, but what of the éminence grise, the shadowy figure of Paul Barber? The jury is still very much out for me, and the more I learn about this guy, the more I can’t but think “Garry Cook, Manchester City”. Enjoy 2013-14, if you’re an Albionite you’ve earned yourself a good season.

Still muggy

Just so’s you know I’m still alive innit. Been having a lot of life changes lately, no time for blogging. But I’m still about and I’m still buying stuff. Here’s a very funny tea mug from those top boys at Casual Connoisseur. Tea tastes great in this you melts.

I’ve still got my season ticket for Falmer, and I’m kind of glad we didn’t go up a division with Poyet still in charge, the muggy cunt. Should be blogging proper again soon, ciao ragazzi.
