Keith Andrews: Has moved to Brighton on a season-long loan

The Republic of Ireland midfielder featured in both of Bolton's opening fixtures of the season but was informed last Thursday that Brighton were interested.

"From there it happened very quickly and I arrived in Brighton on Friday evening," said Andrews.

"Nobody really had the decency to even phone me as I was leaving. I think I deserve a little bit more respect than that, I suppose.

"I always felt I'd done things well at that club, been very professional and treated people like I like to be treated.

"To end on that note was a bit sour but you can't be surprised by anything in football. It came as a bit of a bolt out of the blue as I featured heavily in pre-season.

"However, I've dusted myself down and am very excited to be at Brighton."

Andrews made his Brighton debut in last weekend's home defeat by Derby and is confident he can make a positive contribution.

"I have still got a huge appetite for the game and I feel I can have a big impact here," said the 32-year-old.

"I don't have anything to prove to Bolton. I just have things to prove to myself and want to prolong my career for as long as possible and play at the highest level I can for as long as I can.

"I have come into a squad that has a wealth of experience and ability that will make me be the player I know I can be."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
