Poyet has brought in a host of foreign talent at the Amex, with Argentinian striker Leonardo Ulloa this month joining the ranks, which also include Spaniards Vicente, Bruno, Inigo Calderon, David Lopez and Andrea Orlandi.

The Uruguayan does much of his transfer shopping abroad because British players are more expensive, but he is looking forward to the day the club's planned new training ground produces its first graduates.

"It won't happen immediately but when we have the training ground it will take five, six or seven years for that to work for us," he said.

"We respect the need for homegrown players and the players at this club who are 14 or 15 now we will make into better players. In five years Brighton will have British players coming through the academy.

"We need the pitch and the facilities every day and that's coming in a year's time."

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
