Graham Potter has voiced his disappointment when Brighton and Hove Albion fans booed him and his team off the pitch after the 0-0 draw with Leeds United at Amex.
Potter’s men dominated for much of the game, with little magic coming from Leeds, but Brighton created the majority of chances in the game, lacking only one clear finish. Neal Maupay missed the best opportunity of the game, hitting a shot over the bar when he was only six yards away.
Leeds will come into play late in the second half, but cannot create any clear chances, and certainly not as many as Brighton did. In time, Potter and his party were greeted by a chorus of boos around Amex, a sound the Brighton boss didn’t understand as he shook his head at the crowd.
I was a bit confused by the crowd reaction at the last minute because the performance was amazing against a team that likes to dominate, to dominate you – they didn’t today.
They are entitled to their opinion but I completely disagree with them.
We are eighth in the Premier League but maybe I need a history lesson about this football club. (via BBC Sport.)
Seagulls have started the season in great form, winning four of their opening five games but have since gone eight games without a win, with six of those being draws. In most of those games, it still follows the same old story, superior ball control, creating many chances and failing to score.

Potter has since been clear about his reaction to the boos after the Leeds game, but it is important to remember his points, and Brighton’s place in the Premier League.
To be 9th in 13 games is not a remarkable feat, and with the January transfer window less than a month away, the answers to their standout problems may be narrow.
