Still, you WERE THERE when it happened and have a season ticket for next year. Of course NSC will see more traffic from fans screaming that we didn't buy Neymar, Ronaldo, Bale etc and we're only 15th in the Premier League. I'll be here but won't be bemoaning our lot, oddly the club have done all I wanted them to do, allow my lads and I to see Brighton on the big stage, where it goes from here is all a bonus!
Thought i would , but as yet i haven't , i did last season but i guess it's easier to cry when it hurts .

Was far too caught up in the celebrations on Monday, emotions hit on a hungover Tuesday reminiscing..

Loved this post. They will remember that the rest of their lives, great decision.
I shed the odd tear, but mostly just wandered around with a massive grin on my face.
From WSU, we were happy to watch the initial pitch invasion from on high and take some snaps. We then wandered down to the front row, to see the players from behind. We spotted Dick Knight directly below us and managed to attract his attention. My missus used to stand with her Dad, Dick and his son on the East Terrace at the Goldstone, so we got a big wave and massive thumbs up from Dick. We also spotted Mel who runs the sponsorship contract on behalf of Amex and is a good friend - her life will change big time!
Then walked down to Lower West to get a pint and bumped into a few old stalwarts, man hugs all round. So grateful that my 3 boys were all able to be there yesterday, as 2 now live in Bristol and Leeds respectively. My youngest had been ill all night but somehow had dragged himself along with his streamers and large Sussex flag.
Was with my sister and others in the North concourse when Derby equalised. Total carnage! Then on the pitch for the most surreal singing led first by the Board then by the players. Bumped into so many old faces: Jacko, Mekon, Ju, Tony C, Dave. Then my eldest and I had a final drink in Lewes on the way home.
Brilliant, brilliant day. So proud of all of us #Together.
Yup, I shed some tears as the pitch invasion happened and a few times afterwards when the enormity hit home. So many memories, good and bad, from my first full season ticket at the Goldstone in 1987 as a 16 year old through the Archer/Belotti/Hereford/Priestfield/Withdean and finally Falmer. The thing that really set me off was thinking about all those who passed away before the Amex, and now Premier League, was a reality.

Wasn't even there either - had to watch twitter from the US
