Apparently, the commentator on the Leeds match suggested that they were everyone's current favourite 2nd team. Much derision ensued on the HYS, as you can imagine!

Surely Newport really are everyone's 2nd favourite FA Cup team? Except Newport fans, naturally! Bravo, brave Exiles. Such a shame you fell at the final hurdle, but what a performance!!

BHA lucky, Newport excellent wanted it more, BHA fan for over 50 years and worried now. FA cup is not the league I know but if we play with that tempo against City on Wednesday I expect close to double figures for City. Ben White gave the ball away more times in this match than in the entire season, dont think BHA players took it seriously. Dunk 4 times as many shots on goa las Maupay tells all

I can remember playing on Newport's pitch.. But it was called 'Somerton park' back then.. The pitch fell away in the corners and had to built up with sand... Took a corner kick and ended up covered in sand... There was a Speedway/running track around the pitch.

Newport County a club with a great local following and a rich history.

A lot to talk about and do few characters...

Steele looks like he has trouble making decisions with a live ball, but his reaction saves are brilliant.

Maupay feigns emotion when he doesn’t hit the target. He is lost and I do not believe he is skilled enough to create anything. Tau is better.

There’s a lot left to talk about so pleas fill in the rest.

Well done Newport.

Now they are challenging at the top of the league.

How much slower can Brighton get?

Counterattack starts, reaches midfield, where the player stops has a look around - all the while the opposition are getting into their defensive shape - then passes backwards.

Agree Brighton's problems are in midfield the transition phase is ponderous the difference Lampity makes with his injection of pace is what's required combined with getting numbers into the box however I thought Tau looks like he might have something to offer in this department

I went down there a couple of times last year with a mate from work who’s a regular. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. The fans were really positive throughout and when an opposition player had to be taken off injured, im pretty sure it was Chesterfield all the Newport fans clapped him off sportingly. As a rugby fan it was a great day out fair play

Graham Potter has developed a great young talent in Lamptey, and has a positive, attacking style of play and two of the best centre-backs in PL (White and Dunk), again, two players who have blossomed under Potter's managership.
Brighton fans haven't really appreciated their last two managers, who are well respected in football - Potter & Chris Hughton

Graham you have to change your approach. March apart you have no real players of quality.
Play the game with players you have your all means. Get the ball in the opposition box - the Clough approach - then sort it out from there..
As an ex SEC player Mike Yaxley used to say if the ball is in their penalty area they’ll have a job scoring against you.
Pretty midfield play does t win matches ......

@stormbringer

The name "Aldridge" is derived from the Anglo-Saxon alr or alre + wic meaning 'alder (tree) + village'. Another suggestion is that the name "Aldridge" means "outlying farm among alder-trees", from the Old English alor and wic.

and there is a reason why :)

even the great generals Arthur Wellesley and Frederick Roberts and neither Irish surnames either

I think you will find that "Aldridge" is derived from the Old English words "Ald" meaning big nose and "Ridge" meaning silly moustache....it indicates someone with a big hooter who has, rather foolishly, decided to underline it.
When prefixed with the Christian names "John" and "William" it translates as 'Decent goalscorer with a big nose and a silly tache'.

You're welcome.

Graham you have to change your approach. March apart you have no real players of quality.
Play the game with players you have your all means. Get the ball in the opposition box - the Clough approach - then sort it out from there..
As an ex SEC player Mike Yaxley used to say if the ball is in their penalty area they’ll have a job scoring against you.
Pretty midfield play does t win matches ......

The name "Aldridge" is derived from the Anglo-Saxon alr or alre + wic meaning 'alder (tree) + village'. Another suggestion is that the name "Aldridge" means "outlying farm among alder-trees", from the Old English alor and wic.

and there is a reason why :)

even the great generals Arthur Wellesley and Frederick Roberts and neither Irish surnames either

How much slower can Brighton get?
Have they forgotten how to run?
Counterattack starts, reaches midfield, where the player stops has a look around - all the while the opposition are getting into their defensive shape - then passes backwards.

Brighton got away with one this evening!

I went down there a couple of times last year with a mate from work who’s a regular. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. The fans were really positive throughout and when an opposition player had to be taken off injured, im pretty sure it was Chesterfield all the Newport fans clapped him off sportingly. As a rugby fan it was a great day out fair play

Graham Potter has developed a great young talent in Lamptey, and has a positive, attacking style of play and two of the best centre-backs in PL (White and Dunk), again, two players who have blossomed under Potter's managership.

Ryan a good shot stopper but does not rule what should be his box, thats where I lose faith in him. Cant remember which game it was cross came in he knelt to get the ball think it was Webster came in front put the ball out for a corner Ryan pats him on the back, says he did not call for the ball and praises a player for giving a corner when it should be safely in his hands

Watched extra time of this game. Nuno was proved more than right in his criticism of Lee Mason.
He simply doesnt know what he was doing.
Hero Steele saved 4 penalties - yes he did by moving before the kick was taken and was so far off his line he nearly left the 18 yard box.
Even Newports Manager was screaming he is off his line.
Once again a team has been robbed by Masons complete incompetence

I can remember playing on Newport's pitch.. But it was called 'Somerton park' back then.. The pitch fell away in the corners and had to built up with sand... Took a corner kick and ended up covered in sand... There was a Speedway/running track around the pitch.

If footballers continue to break Covid rules on or off the pitch while being filmed on TV, they should be banned from playing again until the pandemic is over. Fines for footballers are pointless.
