Brighton & Hove Albion : Leave it out.

I don’t recall anyone leaving the Goldstone before Dean Wilkins whipped in that free kick, also against Ipswich back in 91. Did people leave the Cup Final early? I wish I had, although me and Gordon have now made it up. I do remember quite a few were heading up Withdean Road and down Tongdean Lane when Adam ‘you know’ Virgo popped that header in against Swindon, where were these people going?

Brighton & Hove Albion: Europe For it United.

The Albion of course only need to win the FA Cup to enter the Europa League , United need to over haul five point gap to take 5th place, just to get into the Europa League, or they could of course just win 'The Champions League'

Mackem Laugh Gus

Poyet, the 8th most famous Uruguayan in the world turned up at the Albion in November 2009 with one target,to get the club to the Championship in time for the first league game at Falmer. Once during a press conference his watch alarm went off,quick as a flash, he quipped, ''don't worry it's not my heart''

Brighton & Hove Albion :Old Gold - Old Boys & The Old Enemy.

Name some one famous from Hangleton. Dear old Dave Sexton? The jockey Ian Mongan? Peter Ward once upon a time. One can beat all of those. Dean Saunders probably the famous man ever to live in Hangleton. Well Hangleton Road anyway

From halftime at Hereford to four wins from heaven

Tell any Albion fan at 3:55pm on the 3rd May 1997 that in 16 years time the club would be four wins from the Premier League and playing regularly in front of 28,000 at home in Brighton, they would have laughed sarcastically in your face and had you sectioned.

Brighton & Hove Albion: 1st Reserve

I went to see the Albion Reserves/U21’S/Development Squad, last Monday. Alright, I went to see the Albion players who seldom make the first team play their Swansea counterparts at the Amex. I haven’t been to an Albion reserve type match since then ‘reserves’ played Plymouth at Worthing in 2003. Actually, it’s a long way to come, all the way from Devon (almost Cornwall) for a reserve match, especially at Worthing and the only reason I went was because Paul Kitson was due to make yet another return from injury for the Seagulls.

Brighton & Hove Albion: Crowd Seen!

There could be more people at the Amex Stadium than at on Friday night, than voted  the Green Council in Fiveways Village. That’s what they call it up there. The visit of Sheffield Wednesday could eclipse the 25,030 that crammed into the Goldstone in March 1983 (research see, research) to see the Albion take on Liverpool.

Brighton & Hove Albion: Vi-cent-sational

The Saturday before the Cheltenham Festival in 1997, Brighton & Hove Albion were staring oblivion in the face, not at the foot of the queue at Alton Towers, but in reality at the foot of the old League 2.
