Capital One Cup Quarter Final Draw

Nottm Forest vs Arsenal
Reading vs Chelsea
Fulham vs Brighton
Man City vs West Brom


Brighton have signed Chinese attacking Full Back Shi Shilin on a free transfer.

Shi Shilin, 20, has only been available for a short time on a free transfer since his R.Madrid contract expired.

Shi Shilin's arrival has been greeted in positive fashion, with supporters spokesperson Barry Brown telling local media that the fans recognised the player's ambition and determination to succeed and are firmly behind the new signing.

My Comment

He was offered to me by his agent, and i realised that i needed a new left back, i can't keep relying on Elokobi. Having looked at him and finding out that his determination (20), Teamwork (16) and work rate (16) are all good, i concluded that we need a player like that to push forward in this league.

I will resigning as the position of Brighton manager once our Capital One Cup run has ended. This means i will resign if we lose to Fulham on Wednesday, or even in the Semi-Final.
However, if we get to the final i shall resign at the end of the season, but the decision still stands. By the end of this season i will no longer me a Brighton manager.
Why have i chosen this? Well, because i feel it's a good enough time as ever to leave the club, and what with the USA job going so well i am going to turn my focus onto that for a while.
The reason i have chosen to only leave once the cup run is over, is because it won't to leave, but i feel that i've taken them to this stage, and i don't want someone else to take the glory if we win.

Controversial? Probably, but i know full well that the club will take on the right man, and i will be back to watch some of their games.
Is Shi Shilin a regen, thats an epic name?!?!

Good luck with the short time left with Brighton. :)

November Review

Well, again another strange month, and my final full one as Brighton. Drawing at Man City yet losing to Fulham and Wolves? Like a said a strange month.

Sean Murray again has been outstanding.

I remain 14th still, one place below Liverpool.


Despite losing in the League cup, i have decided to spend 3 more games here at the club.
I here for 3 years now and seen them go up from the championship as winners, and i want to be sent off on a home game.


I have officially resigned from Brighton with immediate effect. Although i ended my career on a high (2 wins and a loss) i still feel it right to resign.
I have left Brighton with good prospect and good future ahead of them and wish them the best of luck, but my career is young and i want to make the most of my International Managing.
I of course will be looking for clubs else where in the near future but for now my concentration is solely on USA.
Goodbye Seagulls.
I still love you.
