I enjoyed that. A remarkable game. Worth the money. Pleased with LongeKing and King of course.

Such is life.

Very good effort. All you can ever ask is that nothing is left out on the pitch.

If any game sums up the addiction of being a football supporter then this was it.
My stomach feels like it’s been on a roller coaster at double speed, I’m mentally exhausted, and physically battered. Penalties are so cruel and so dramatic too.
Just hope our season doesn’t nose dive now, if we can keep the momentum going as long as possible then anything is possible.
Thank you Newport County for another unbelievably exciting night of drama and entertainment

On reflection has to be seen as another fantastic season of cup football. Only beaten in pen shoot-outs by 2 premiership teams.
More valuable money in the bank.
Glad we have 6 days 'til next game , Tonight must have taken a lot out of the legs.

Some grass would be nice.

Good performance against a strong Brighton side. As others have said the two Kings were excellent

I thought their keeper dived early for most of the pens and was off his line. Why didn't Proctor take one of the 5 pens, and Ellison? Great performance though. Well done.

There's no shame in losing to a decent BHA team. Their league position doesn't reflect their ability. They need a decent striker to turn their draws into wins.

Thought County set up well and defensively were fairly sound. Midfield was a bit lacking and Podge was a little unlucky with both half-chances and had very little service.

I did say the other day that I thought Longe-King may be preferred to either Baker as CB or Howkins and he acquitted himself well. A few small things to work on but the shirt is his for the weekend. I thought King was excellent tonight. I do wonder whether the difference tonight was that Brighton did their research on penalties and County may not of...

Proctor did take a penalty. And scored.

Flynny took the gamble to throw two subs on at the death,we got the goal but,Matty coming off meant we lost shape in extra time and he was our penalty taker.Collins coming off was a surprise but Kev nearly won it at the death,very surprised he didn't put his hand up to take one.King more than justified his selection,Longe King also.

Credit has to go to their keeper for the penalty saves. Didn't think our efforts were poor.

Proud of the boys tonight. Robbie - I honestly don’t k is what he brings to the side any more so would happily let him go if someone would take him. Collins didn’t want to do the running that his fresh legs should have had so I could see why he was hooked. Everyone else did themselves proud and never stopped trying. King made som world class saves. Mickey, Matty and Shep were superb. Longe-King was super too and for a first outing makes me think we already have our replacement for cooper. Sheehan got into the game and was excellent as usual. Benno great. Disappointed we could find the win but if I’m honest I think we could do without the games and now fully focus on promotion which is achievable if we can find ourselves a goalscorer.

[quote="Percy plunkett"
Collins coming off was a surprise

In fact, the more I think about this, MF has 'thrown Collins under the bus' with this decision. It was rash and could damage the lad's confidence, not to mention we had no-one with any energy after we did take the game to ET.

Substituting a substitute is very rarely done unless there's an injury, at that stage if I was convinced I wanted both Proctor and Ellison on the pitch as one last throw of the dice I'd have taken off Bennett or Haynes instead of Collins, not because they were playing badly (they didn't) but because Collins had more in the tank to offer.

If I was Collins I'd be kicking a few water bottles round the dressing room tonight and then respectfully asking MF for an explanation tomorrow.
