The brilliance of Brighton
Written by Josh Dolan
Brighton we’re heading in to the 22/23 season with little hope as their two arguably best players left during the transfer window as Yves Bissouma headed to Tottenham and Marc Cucurella headed to Chelsea. The two left for a combined fee of £85 million which Brighton excellently reinvested back into the squad as they signed Pervis Estupiñán from Villarreal and the Ecuadorian has hit the ground running. Moisés Caicedo who signed for the South Coast side in February has proved to be a excellent replacement for Bissouma in the opening few games of the season.
This superb business model has been key to why Brighton have succeed over the years since they were promoted to the Premier League as their business certainly goes around quietly. However this wouldn’t be possible without Graham Potter.
Graham Potter has bought exciting and free flowing football to the south coast as his work is finally starting to get the recognition it deserves. Potter who started his managerial career in Östersund made a move to Wales as he took charge of Swansea before moving to the South Coast to Brighton. The Englishman had a rocky start but his hard work is finally starting to pay off. Last season Brighton picked up their most points ever in top flight history but many doubted them going into the new seasons but Brighton have picked up 10 points in 5 games and have certainly caught the eye.
Graham Potter is certainly building something special at Brighton and they are set for a very successful season. Potter will certainly be a top 6 manager in the near future.
