    Tiffy I have just seen you are from Brighton. And a fan, I assume.

    What are the chances of Brighton getting bummed off the park in tonights game?

    I was a STH at the Amex for 6 seasons & have followed Brighton for about 17 years. I have just moved to Devon, so haven't seen them live since Dec.

    I don't think they will get thrashed by Cardiff. The players should respond to the horror show at the weekend. For Cardiff it's a must win, for Brighton a mustn't lose. Gross and March should be back, which should mean a more attacking intent. I'm hoping for a Brighton win, but not very confident.


  2. @StevieDay1983

    Good write up mate. Yes Gross and March are  back in contention, & boy do we need them!

    i have no idea if it's going to be a tetchy, nervy affair, or whether both teams just have to go for it.  Vincent Tan sent a nice message through Talk Sport this morning, shows that he (as you said before) has become more in tune with the ethos over here.

    Good luck tonight, let's see how it pans out:gimme

  3. @StevieDay1983 What are you making of the game tmrw? I think that it is Brighton's to lose, and Cardiff have nothing to lose! The performance on Saturday was very unusual and if they don't show a reaction tmrw then we are right in the mix up. As soon as we reached Wembley, I had visions of a repeat of 1983, which now look a possibility.

    The problem for Brighton is that they simply don't score enough goals. If this addressed soon, then I can see relegation happening next season if not this one.

    i think Cardiff will feel they have some chance of reeling Brighton in, so will be going for it from the off. I just hope that Brighton get back to their best, cos anything less will make it easier for your boys.

    on a lighter note, I was at Torquay on Saturday to see them clinch the title.I had a tenner e/w at 34/1 on them winning the title, so will be buying a season ticket with my winnings. Looking forward to watching a season of Conference National next season.

    Back to form with a bang during the week with two big price winners thanks to Barnet and Blyth. Just the 4 bets for me on Grand National Day.

    Dover v Chesterfield

    Dover nearly beat Solihull last week which was obviously a good effort although Solihull did have 10 men. That made it 4 games unbeaten which has seen them go clear of the relegation zone, but I do think the away side are over priced to win this. They have won 6 of their last 10 games including their last 3 and they are looking a much improved side from the one that kept drawing under Martin Allen. They are the better team for me so 11/5 is too big.

    Maidenhead v Barnet

    Going to stick with Barnet after their superb win on Tuesday night. It was another clean sheet as well and although Maidenhead aren't in bad form and have won their last 2, but this match is tougher and given how strongly Barnet are finishing the season they rate value to get another win.

    Woking v Torquay

    This was looking like it was going to decide where the title was going in National League South, but as I always suspected Torquay are looking like they are going to be too strong for Woking. Woking have to win this if they are going to have any shout of winning the title and even then Torquay would still have the upper hand. Woking haven't looked great in recent weeks having picked up just 2 points in their last 3 games which has seen them drop 7 points behind Torquay with just 5 games to go. Torquay are looking different class to the rest of the league at the moment and I think they will be looking to make a statement here against a Woking side who have to go for it. I think they are worth a play at 6/4 with Betfred.

    Bishops Stortford v Margate

    The last team to beat Margate was champions elect Dorking and that was 10 games ago. As I have mentioned on here a few times in recent weeks they have been really good since Jay Saunders took over as manager and although Stortford have won 3 on the bounce after having a tricky spell with no win in 6 there is no way Maragte should be as big as they are to get another win on the board.

    Chesterfield 1pt @ 11/5 with William Hill and BetVictor

    Barnet 1pt @ 39/20 with Marathon

    Torquay 1pt @ 6/4 with Betfred

    Margate 1pt @ 13/5 with BetVictor


    Gary Johnson blamed tired legs after Tuesdays game, for the lacklustre pergormance on Saturday.  But they showed great character to come back from 3-1 down to snatch a draw. There should be a bumper crowd roaring them on against Eastbourne, and with a full weeks rest, they should comfortably get the job done.

    Well, both of our sides have given decent accounts of ourselves against City over the past week! Unlucky on going out. Hope you have enjoyed the experience and continue to do so tonight. Try to leave London in one piece! :beer

    Cheers mate. Yes, me and my son had a great day in London. We walked along the south bank, had  some great pie & mash at Borough Market and a few halves along the way!

    I am glad that everyone's "safe" betting strategy on over 2.5 goals and a Brighton "bumming" never happened. i never thought it would to be fair, and had a small wager on them to win at 21/1 & to qualify at 12/1.

    Great atmosphere from the Brighton end, and a solid performance from us. Very proud of the team, and it wasn't the thrashing that everyone thought it would be. We are good defensively, our problem is at the other other end. I think it may cost us next season.

    There is now the small matter of a huge game coming up against your mob, in what will now be a crucial 6 pointer!

    However, we will be supporting Leicester, which has been in excellent condition since Breden Rogers took over, and is currently being tested at the headquarters of the Huddersfield

    On paper, it looks like an away win here, I agree. But there is always danger once a team has been relegated, and the pressure is suddenly off. It's not a game I will be touching, and will be interesting to see how Huddersfield perform here.

    Good luck

    I bet you're bloody delighted! As a Cardiff fan that is seasoned in the trips to Wembley for cup games I can only say you'll have a belter of a day. Enjoy it!

    Thanks mate. Yes, hoping I can get a ticket and have a good weekend away.

    Have to say that the lad deserved to miss the last pen, after blocking Murray off for their first goal.

    Milwalls dirty tactics didn't pay. In the end Karma got them, Hans

    Are these the most underwhelming set of FA Cup Quarter-Final fixtures since the 2007/08 season when my beloved Cardiff lost in the Final to Portsmouth? Quite possibly! Still, there's some value to be had if we dig a little deeper. Here are the odds for these games. Give us your tips for these games. Let's try and take some profit from these games. :ok

    Well I would have agreed that these quarter finals were not the most attractive, but all turned out to be decent games. The SWA V MC & MIL V BRI in particular were proper, thrilling, old fashioned cup ties. Wolves put on a great show from their fans & players. They've knocked out both Reds too.

    The magic of the cup is well and truly alive this season!

    Yes fair play mate, Brighton defended very well throughout and not much could be done about the 2 incredible finishes.

    Murray is still a class act, great goal and doesn't celebrate.

    Both M23 derbies have been a horror show for Palace this season, I just hope we don't meet in the cup now, I have had enough seaweed incursions for the time being.

    Cheers pal, love the banter from you:notworthy Always funny,

    Yes, it would be bizzare if they met in the cup at Wembley! Got a tough away game at the New Den first though. It would be great to see a club outside the Top 6 win it tho:ok

    I hope so to but I think it may be difficult, there's a rumour going round that 11 clowns from the south coast are gonna invade the pitch at 12:30.

    Well you are on fine form this weekend! Haha

    11 clowns? Well they didn't do too bad did they:loon

    Knockaert the magician silenced 25,000 with a wave of his magic wand, 

    To be honest, I didn't see that coming, but then again, that's football. Expect the un expected!

    To be honest @StevieDay1983 I feel this is a pretty terrible game from a betting perspective, if I had to pick something from 1X2 here it would be X @ 3.6 as home win seems to be priced correctly.

    I must stick to the discipline of not getting heavily involved with betting on derby games as teams can behave differently to what they might do normally. It tends to add another element of uncertainty.

    As for Palace in general; I like the signing of Batshuayi, he's hit the ground running and has the ability to score out of nowhere. Perhaps one of those strikers that isn't so good when he gets chances delivered on a plate but he's an upgrade on anything we had before and makes us more threatening in the final 3rd. Once again we see Palace performing a lot better in the 2nd half of the season rather than the 1st.

    I wouldn't bother asking @Tiffy what he thinks about Palace V Brighton. He's become a nomadic glory hunter who scours the south of England for teams to prey on after he's drained the vital essence of his previous muse. My latest projections suggest he will have a massive existential crisis in 2022 when Brighton play Torquay in league two where at which point he will go and support the Ilfracombe Indefatigable's (a newly-formed step 7 outfit who have links to the Cuban government).


    Haha, that's very funny:loon Yoi could well be right! I'm liking any team with links to the Cuban government. It'll be free cigars after a win!

    I can't see Brighton getting much tmrw, you've called it right, and I can see Palace getting a 1X here. They have picked up massively recently.

    Anyway, I'm off to Home Park for some more glory hunting tmrw. LUTON are in town, and I can only get a ticket for the home end as the away end is sold out!

    Whateve happens at Selhirst, I just hope that the game passes without any trouble.

    I like your optimism. I'll have some of what you're drinking!

    @Tiffy, Cardiff's awful results reminded me... what the hell is going on down your way? 5 losses and 2 draws in your last 7 games. Welcome to the relegation dog fight!

    Thanks mate!

    Yes it's a bit worrying, but we have played 1st,3rd & 8th (In the 8 match form table) at home, so some teams going very well there. I still think there will be 3 teams worse than us, but it will be a tight run in. 

    I have taken my eye off the ball now I have moved to Devon, and am loving watching the Gulls at Plainmoor. It's a real battle between them and Woking for top spot this season.

    I am off to Plymouth next Saturday when LUTON visit to catch up with a few mates who are coming down too.

    But for Brighton, I can see them finishing 17th, but only just!
