  1. Those are nice kits for the gulls. Wouldn’t mind seeing the club come up. They have a really nice ground and I think have never been in the EPL. I think they were in top flight way back in the 70’s for a while.

  2. Not sure who the 0-0 draw favors. Brighton will feel they should win at home while Palace will feel a score draw gets them through. Second leg should be interesting.
