    It's a big ask Stevie mate....but the bookies are being unbelievably generous on us but it is a tough game, I'll admit, but we are a full 8 points in front of Brighton. I'd deffo say we were worth a single tonight.

    I was at this game and was looking forward to watching the league leaders. However, they were poor, I don't know if it was an off night for them, but it looked like they came for a point. They defended well. But offered little goal threat. The funny thing was that they "time wasted" all game, especially the keeper (& at corners too). As soon as Brighton scored they couldn't move quick enough, especially the keeper & they moaned at the ref as Brighton slowed things down.

    Their keeper got massive cheers when the video replay showed him fumbling the ball into the net.

    At half time I was so bored I was struggling to stay awake as Huddersfield broke the game up, slowed things down & wasted time at every opportunity.

    karma, it gets you in the end!

    Great to see a new poster in this area. Your heart governing your head here or do you genuinely think Luton can pull it off? I'm backing Villa to get a decent win but the EFL Cup is renowned for its shocks if teams play weakened sides.

    Thanks Stevie. 

    Not really, I try and take emotion out of gambling. I will only part with money if I really believe that I will win. It's hard enough to earn, & too easy to give it away.

    i had a similar feeling a few seasons ago when they dumped Wolves out of the FA Cup & their manager got sacked. On the same day Brighton beat Newcastle in the cup too. The double paid 10/1, and I didn't take it . 

    sometimes there is more to a match than 11v 11, We saw plenty of examples of that in the Euro's didn't we?

    I always say that on paper Team A will always beat Team B, but football is not played on paper.

    Nobody can change teams. It's in the blood. Even if they are useless you still turn out to each match in hope to see them achieve something. 


    Back to tonights games. You seen the villa line up? Very strong. Backed. 

    Thanks for all the comments. I am of course feeling rather smug now, 

    when my son was born, we decided to move to Sussex. I couldn't raise him in Luton. I took him to his first game in 2005, Crystal Palace v Luton. He was 7. We won 2-1, and he fell in love with the beautiful game. I gave him free reign to support whoever he wanted, and he chose his local 3rd division team, Brighton. As I couldn't go back and watch Luton, I started taking him to the Withdean. I wanted to encourage him to support a smaller club rather than be a glory hunter. I haven't changed my club, I still support Luton, but I now follow Brighton & enjoy watching live football with my son.

    There were definite similarities to Brightons style of play from Luton tonight. Yes they rode their luck, but played some great football to inflict more pain on Villa.


  4. This is my first post, although I have been reading PL for a few years now. Generally I find it excellent and if if it wasn't for Adpea, I would have had a poor season last season ( Thanks Adpea)

    So first post... Here goes...

    I grew up in the Oak Rd terrace at Keilworth Rd, and the "Old Lady" will be rocking tonight in the League cup.

    The Villa players won't be used to grounds like this, noisy, intimidating & close to the pitch. The crowd will play a huge part tonight, definitely the 12th man.

    I have been a Brighton season ticket holder since the Amex was built, and had been very impressed with Nathan Jones during his time at the Abion. I was delighted when he decided to take over at Luton, and his arrival made a big impact on the style of football. He has made 2 excellent signings from Brighton in Chris Walton (England U19 keeper) & Glen Rea, a highly rated defensive player form the development squad.

    To go to Plymouth on the first day of this season and win 3-0 is a phenomenal result. Nathan will want to keep momentum going upwards, so should field a strong side tonight.

    Di Matteo will be desperate for a win to kick start the season for Villa, but he will be more focused on keeping his best players fit for the league.

    A Kenilworth Rd cup tie, under lights, against a team on the slide, has all the ingredients to make me feel optimistic about tonight.
