Seagull’s Dream’ Brighton, aiming for UCL with ‘Porter Substitute

Will the seagulls be able to achieve their dreams? While Brighton & Hove Albion have been knocked out, they are also aiming for the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

Brighton will face Fulham in the 24th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season, which will be held at the American Express Community Stadium in Brighton, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 19th. 온라인바카라 Brighton are currently 6th in the league (35 points, +11 goal difference) and Fulham are 7th (35 points, +4 goal difference).

Brighton isn’t thinking about coming down. When Graham Porter, who led the team for four years, left for Chelsea, the prospect that Brighton would soon descend into the mid-table was dominant.

it was raining New manager Roberto De Gervi, who took over from Porter, is making his gulls flap their wings, applying his own colors appropriately to Brighton. He is working his magic with Brighton as well, proving that the storm he caused in Sassuolo, Italy, is not temporary.

This is surprising considering the departure of key players. Brighton is maintaining a good record this season alone, even though it has sent out a number of key players such as Mark Cucurella, Yves Bisuma, Neil Mouffe and Leandro Trosar (Winter). The proper supply of new players, such as the acquisition of Pervis Estupinyan, the rediscovery of Kaoru Mitoma, and the call-up of Evan Ferguson, played a role.

De Jerbi’s tactics cannot be ignored either. While making use of his own strength, the center-oriented attack strategy, he does not ignore his flanks and shows an amazing ability to properly mix his own color with the strengths of the existing team.

He is particularly noteworthy for his share. Brighton love to use their defensive possession to draw opponents in and launch momentary counter-attacks, which has worked well for many teams. In fact, their share (58.7%) is a very good record for fifth place in the EPL. It is equal to Arsenal and more than 5 percentage points higher than Manchester United (53.3%).

The second half is also good. Brighton rarely loses with 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in 7 league games. Even in the only defeat against Arsenal, Brighton did not give up their football and recorded an amazing 68% possession. It is all the more surprising when you consider that the opponent is coach Mikel Arteta, who has a good knowledge of possession.

UCL is also not a dreamy story. If they win against Fulham this time, Brighton will be in close pursuit of 4th place Newcastle United by 3 points. Given that Newcastle have been sluggish lately with a run of three league draws, it’s not impossible for Brighton to surpass them.

Brighton are ready to soar even higher with manager De Jerby. It is noteworthy for the rest of the season whether the ‘Seagull’s Dream’ will come true under the direction of coach De Jerbi, with high possession, momentary counterattacks, and center-oriented attacks.
