Romain Vincelot: Released by Brighton

Brighton have released versatile Frenchman Romain Vincelot.

The 27-year-old made 20 appearances for Albion last season but found himself surplus to requirements this term and had a spell on loan with Gillingham.

Boss Gus Poyet told the club website: "We thank Romain for his contribution to the club throughout his time at Brighton.

"He helped the side in many different positions last year but with the players we brought in over the summer he knew that his chances would be limited this season.

"We were honest with him and he was a great professional around the club and on the training ground.

"We wish him all the best of luck for the rest of his career."

Youngster Matt McGiveron has also had his contract terminated by mutual consent.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
