Russ Bravo with his new Albion shirt

Fans supplied witty captions for this picture by Paul Hazlewood

First published in Sport

Loyal fan Russ Bravo is celebrating after winning a new Albion shirt from The Argus.

We asked readers to think of a fun caption for a picture showing Kazenga LuaLua, Jake Forster-Caskey and Bruno playing a game of pool in the Seagulls' Nike sponsored home, away and third-choice shirts.

Worthing-based Bravo, a North Stand season ticket holder at the Amex and supporter of the club since the 1970's, was selected for a simple but topical suggestion following Leo Ulloa's £8 million move to Leicester.

He quoted LuaLua thinking: "Unless we can replace Leo sharpish, we're snookered."

Bravo told The Argus: "I am looking forward to a new adventure with Sami Hyypia in charge. I think we urgently need three to four new players this season to give us a chance of challenging again though!

"As for the caption, it was the first idea that came into my head, allied to everyone's sadness at seeing Leo go - tempered by the incredible fee the club have managed to get in return."

Bravo saw off some stiff competition. Here is a selection of other entries.

Ken Isted: Big cues for new Albion shirts.

Alan Lucas: JFC saying: "I tell you what Kazenga, hope this is not an omen for Bruno for the forthcoming season, the amount of reds and yellows he is looking at!

Seagulltess: With this amount of balls we are bound to score.

SadClown: With the transfer market in full flow, JFC & Kaz ease new recruit Peter Ebdon into his new surroundings.

Steyning: Hey there's more balls on the table than players in our squad.

Scats1: Do you realize, what with parachute payments and FFP, this is the only time we will play on the level.

Quiterie: Love the new training ground facilities. But I hope these pockets aren't as deep as Tony Bloom's. We'll never get the balls back!"

Sorry I just sold my new shirt to my son, I don't like what seems to be an after thought of the shirt sponsor name American Express slapped on plastic across the front of the shirt. The old strip with it directly printed on was for me more professional or premier ready. Sort this out Nike!!

We have a generic kit we are not quite big enough "yet" to have a bespoke one, get over it. To have landed a contract for kit supply by probably one of the top two sportswear manufacturers in the world is a massive achievement by our club, some people "not necessarily you mickagull" need to take a look at just how far we have come in a little over 4 years.

The announcement that we have been awarded cat 1 status for our academy is another achievement that all supporters of our football club should and in my case are very proud to have, this status can only be great news for the future of our club. The "suits" can feel rightly proud of this attainment, well done to all concerned, our club and us supporters can rest assured that Brighton and Hove albion fc are in very safe hands.SEAGULLS.

"Get over it"..? Such aggression, such intolerance! Mickagull paid a lot of money for a club shirt so I think that gives him, and any other person laying out good money, the right to an opinion about the thing.

Agree with you on the design of the sponsor logo and how it's attached but will still wear it with pride.
How about in a couple of years when the next strip comes out, the club runs a competition where local schools get to design the shirt and the winning school gets the schools shelf in the nw corner for the first home match as a prize! Good publicity and probably get a whole bunch of new fans at the same time.
Just seen on sky sports, Yeovil players delivering season tickets to fans in person! What a fantastic idea, maybe something for the club to think about, say the first thousand season ticket renewals get them delivered by the likes of Cms or LuaLua.

I agree with that. The sponsorship panel looks tacky and is a different shade of white to the stripes.

We have a generic kit we are not quite big enough "yet" to have a bespoke one, get over it. To have landed a contract for kit supply by probably one of the top two sportswear manufacturers in the world is a massive achievement by our club, some people "not necessarily you mickagull" need to take a look at just how far we have come in a little over 4 years.

The announcement that we have been awarded cat 1 status for our academy is another achievement that all supporters of our football club should and in my case are very proud to have, this status can only be great news for the future of our club. The "suits" can feel rightly proud of this attainment, well done to all concerned, our club and us supporters can rest assured that Brighton and Hove albion fc are in very safe hands.SEAGULLS.
"Get over it"..? Such aggression, such intolerance! Mickagull paid a lot of money for a club shirt so I think that gives him, and any other person laying out good money, the right to an opinion about the thing.
Thanks Willie, yes Golddene this is my opinion, and in my opinion there is nothing wrong with the quality of the generic shirt that has been mass produced on the cheap in a Thailand sweat shop, that's the way of the world. All I'm saying is the sponsor panel looks cheap. I would buy a new top tomorrow without this panel, until then I'll wear my old Errea top. This fact has been a topic of conversation down my local tonight and over 70% agreed with me and more than 50% of them said it has put them off buying one. So this generic top could be a False economy.

To have landed a contract for kit supply by probably one of the top two sportswear manufacturers in the world is a massive achievement by our club, some people "not necessarily you mickagull" need to take a look at just how far we have come in a little over 4 years. The announcement that we have been awarded cat 1 status for our academy is another achievement that all supporters of our football club should and in my case are very proud to have, this status can only be great news for the future of our club. The "suits" can feel rightly proud of this attainment, well done to all concerned, our club and us supporters can rest assured that Brighton and Hove albion fc are in very safe hands.SEAGULLS.[/p][/quote]"Get over it"..? Such aggression, such intolerance! Mickagull paid a lot of money for a club shirt so I think that gives him, and any other person laying out good money, the right to an opinion about the thing.[/p][/quote]Thanks Willie, yes Golddene this is my opinion, and in my opinion there is nothing wrong with the quality of the generic shirt that has been mass produced on the cheap in a Thailand sweat shop, that's the way of the world. All I'm saying is the sponsor panel looks cheap. I would buy a new top tomorrow without this panel, until then I'll wear my old Errea top. This fact has been a topic of conversation down my local tonight and over 70% agreed with me and more than 50% of them said it has put them off buying one. So this generic top could be a False economy. mickagull

We have a generic kit we are not quite big enough "yet" to have a bespoke one, get over it.

Nike may be one of the biggest, I would prefer we were with one of the best.
The club were pushing hard for pre orders and now we know why.
