    Seeing that you have ignored the query, is it fair to conclude that you just made this up in your own head?

    I could be wrong but I think Paul may have been reading between the lines in relation to Hughton's quotes. The fact that he said the summer will be vital for Towell to get himself "fully ready for what he needs to play at this level". This may or may not have been regarding his fitness levels but question Paul's sixth sense at your peril.

    I fully expect Towell to be unfit at some time in the future

    Towell may have issues adapting to life/football in England but fitness certainly won't be one of them

    you're not doubting Paul's precognitive abilities too?

    Towell must be hoping Brighton don't get promoted, if it'll take him the summer period to adapt to the standard of the Championship, that is?!

    I may have doubts about his sanity but I don't question any of his senses - simply his use of quotation marks

    I was quoting myself.

    That's exactly it.I love how dodge comes in with one liners like as a matter of fact, unquestionable scientifically proven facts at that.

    Hughton has clearly indicated that he isn't at the required level just yet. He seemed to have given him more opportunities initially so that would suggest to me he thought so initially but he was wrong.

    He is hardly going to become a far better footballer in 6 months if anyone would question the "ready" bit.

    That's hilarious - will you be talking about yourself in the 3rd person soon?

    Unlike your post, it was pretty clear that he was stating his own opinion (no doubt he has also seen Towell play over the last few years - have you?)

    Towell was, by far, the fittest footballer in Ireland. Plenty of other Irish footballers have made the jump to English football and not struggled for fitness.

    So I think it's fair to assume that Towell is absolutely fit enough to play at the level he's at.

    Whether he's "ready" or not is a different issue and one no one here can answer.

    I'd imagine it must be very difficult for Towell to settle in there. He's left an awful lot behind at home, but most importantly, his partner and newborn child who are still there as far as I'm aware. It'll not only be a difficult adjustment in terms of team and level, but also must be very mentally draining for him.

    It'll probably take a few months for him to make it there.

    My worry is that I'm not sure Chris Hughton is the right manager for him.

    No one has a gun to his head, Nigel. Life is hard sometimes as you always say a man has to do what a man has to do. Put the off field stuff aside and dig in.

    That's very true and I'm sure that's what he's trying to do. But at the end of the day, that's easier said than done. I couldn't imagine just how difficult it must be for him.
