Amazing. Huddersfield are brilliant!

I had this view (based on nothing) that they weren't that good but were just having a decent season and doing alright.

But they're a great side from what I've seen so far.

3-1 and well deserved.

Been quite a enjoyable game, HTFC look handy

Bit of credit for the Sky commentators - never liked Prutton as a player but genuinely seems to know his stuff. Not often I bother listen to the commentary but he is pretty good.

Getting a bit annoyed with the Sky commentators putting an inflection on "Izzy Brown" as if it was a question.

I certainly don't miss Norwood. Brighton's midfield has been dismal

If we could do that, then things might start to et very interesting with the top 2

II disagree, i'd prefer they targeted a defeat.

Agreed. Then it'll be a pleasant surprise if they get a result.

I'm a bit torn here, obvs it doesn't seem ideal for Huddersfield to make up ground on us but if this is the start of brighton's annual choke then long may it continue

Happy with that. Prefer to close the gap on the top 2 rather than 4th. NSC should be up in flames by now :lol:

I'll say. It's making a post-defeat Hobnob look positively even-tempered.

A second yellow for Bruno would be the icing on the cake

Can't work out if Brighton have been desperately poor or Udders are an outstanding side. Been a joy to watch to be fair.

Both I think.

Brighton can't do anything - pass and lose possession every time.

Huddersfield are fukimg brilliant. So many chances and brilliant passing and movement. Our game there is going to be difficult to say the least.

Bit of both. Huddersfield have been great tonight, but Brighton are not all that really. Their fans will probably blame defensive mistakes or the ref but the ref I think has been good tonight. He could have easily sent upside down head Bruno for two nailed on yellow cards after two minutes!
