Re: Brighton v Burnley - Player Ratings

Having not seen the game or read a report yet. Did Brighton create a lot of chances? I ask as a few have given the defence 4s which I’m guessing means we were very lucky to get a point and were bombarded with chances.

That’s as openly critical of his players as I’ve ever heard from Dyche, and though it’s refreshing to hear in some respects, he also needs to look at himself.
