Young guns go for it

It's pleasing to see Kazenga Lua Lua continues to make a good impression down on the south coast, his late goal securing the Seagulls a 1-0 win which sent opponents Brentford to the foot of the table but kept them on top.

Fellow loanee Ben Tozer had a less successful evening, his adopted side Northampton losing at home to Chesterfield. Still, it's been quite a start to the defender's Cobblers career, having followed up the incredible League Cup defeat of Liverpool with a goal in a 2-0 win over much-fancied League One rivals Bradford.

With Fraser Forster also enjoying a prolonged spell between the sticks at Celtic, featuring in five wins out of five so far, the trio look to be reaping the rewards of the loan system and will, you'd imagine, return to St James' as better players.

Meanwhile, we've added to our ranks of youth with 18-year-old midfielder Yven Moyo, whisked away from Sochaux under the noses of Man Utd. Chris Hughton may have commented that the Frenchman is "very much one for the future" who will benefit from "working with our development group", indicating that we shouldn't expect to see him in the first team any time soon - but all the same the fact that we've handed him a four-year deal suggests a significant faith in his abilities. Our record with French players isn't great, so let's just hope that that faith isn't misplaced.
