Brighton and Hove Albion made it a second month

the Albion was more than forgotten as he became the
best deliver of a set piece since Paul Watson to
record a glut of assists as well as scoring two of
the goals of the season against QPR and Charlton.
It's not a very well kept secret that we are such a
better team with him and Kayal together in the
middle and although they've been joined surprisingly

You wouldn't expect a goalkeeper to be important in
