    Wonderful end to the season for Connolly. Exposing Longs lack of pace, got in behind him cutting in from left and cooly finished to bottom right corner. He needed this. Delighted for him. Let’s hope he can push on with good preseason and start to next season

    Scored cutting in off the left wing again. The left sided forward position in the 4-3-3 system we play looks perfect for him.

    It's the position where he stood out as a star in the waiting for Kenny's 21s, for those that saw him.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    Yea so do I, makes him look about 50!

    Was a great goal, kind of did not seem possible he could get past the defender and it did not seem he had the angle to score either!

    If we have Connelly, Ofafemi and Long on the pitch at the same time, speed of attack that would be some blitzkrieg

    Idah is no slouch either.

    My front 3 would be Connolly - McGoldrick - Long. I know McG isn't an orthodox forward, I'd be using him as a "false 9". It'd be brilliant to watch. We'd have pace in abundance, footballing guile and creativity. We'd just never score

    I think if Ofafemi can stay off the burgers he will be our main sticker, we need an actually goal scorer on the pitch, have mcg behind him as the 10 and I think we will be fine

    same front 3 for me if we're going 4-3-3 which I get the impression we will be.

    not sure I can find a role for captain coleman given the attacking threat doherty offers but that's for another thread...

    It is weird in that he is on the inside initial then cuts to the outside than back onto the inside.

    I think he unbalance Long

    But Connolly looks in fine form, fast and sharp.

    A new 4 year deal for Connolly at Brighton. Fine reward for a decent first full season in the team.

    Well done to him. Probably the first of our current Under 21 players to sign a mega bucks Premier League first team contract.
