Falmer Panoramic 10/08/13

Not going to say much apart from its good to be back at Falmer and seeing old mates again for a beer on a football Saturday. Shit start on the pitch, but far from panic stations as we’re still only 6 points from automatic promotion, ok kids?

Cheers

Turin: Part Two

January 18, 2013

The River Po

Well, I’m back to work again, just as the Albion have hit form again; Derby was my last live game until April. Here’s the best of the rest of my photos from Turin, as promised. I’ll be pretty quiet on here until April, and then it’s seeing the end of the Championship season in, and another game over in Italy, Sampdoria v Fiorentina. I fancy Albion to sneak the last play-off place, and Samp to stay in Serie A now they have master tactician and player puncher Delio Rossi in charge. Cheers.

Great views from Superga

Result of the shopping in Turin, a nice bit of shiny Moncler, the stylish Torinese are mostly covered in this stuff at this time of year.

Michael Ricketts coming to Withdean?

July 13, 2009

The 30 year old Walsall striker, who has one England cap, is being trialled by the Albion, along with Seagulls old boy Dan Harding and Danny Spiller. Not sure Ricketts is up for the job, but it is only a trial. But hey, if he comes and gets some goals who cares?

Things could be looking up for the Seagulls this season with other signings, we should have giant Derby County forward Liam Dickinson fully suited and booted this week at a much hyped price of £500,000. He has been likened to Albion Legend Bobby Zamora, that’s big boots to fill in my humble opinion.

Can’t wait for 8th August, this is going to be a HUGE season for us, I’m predicting an around the play-offs finish, definitely top ten. With or without Michael Ricketts.
