    Well, to be fair, Brighton should have been playing with 10 men for 89 minutes, and the guy that kicked a Palace player in the balls scored the winner :)

    I know, right? Knockert was a huge reason Brighton got promoted, but has struggled to show he is PL quality.. so very satisfying day for him. Kicking your rival in the balls and not getting red carded for it is just icing on the cake. LOL

    He's like Gabriel Obertan, a winger Newcastle used to have. Blinding pace, couldn't keep the ball on his foot if both had Velcro, and couldn't cross to save his life. Probably would have been class down in the Championship, though.

    This is OT--it happened in the Championship--but did you see what happened in the Birmingham-Aston Villa match? A fan charge onto the pitch and sucker-punched Grealish (sp?). What's more shocking is that his own teammates didn't tear into the guy. People are saying closed-door matches and maybe a points deduction for Birmingham, which would put them out of contention for a playoff spot. Ouch! But I guess you have to make it a ginormous deterrent for any fan of a team.

    woah, I did not see or hear that yet. This is at least the second attack recently I have heard of. An Arsenal spectator hit dele ali in the head with a bottle of water a couple of months ago at the emirates. I think they should put these people in jail and lose the key for a long long time. It makes no sense why you would assault someone (especially a player) at a sporting event.

    Yes I have been keeping an eye on this. English football is so global and has so many more eyes on it now, I think they need to take significant and decisive action to really deter this going forward.

    Thanfully Grealish was not hurt and actually ended up scoring the game winner over their bitter rival.

    Not directly related to EPL, but a miraculous win in the FA Cup semis by Brighton this morning. Went down 2-0 with 11 mins left, and then scored in the 88th and 95th minute. Then Murray missed the first shot in the penalty shootout, but Brighton rallied to win 5-4 on PKs. On to Wembley - Fly Seagulls!!!!
