    Do you want to be naturally dominant?

    Is anyone else a bit uneasy when Paul Barber talks about wanting to 'dominate' the South of England?

    In his Argus interview he says: "First we have to dominate Brighton, then we dominate Sussex, then we dominate the South of England."

    Now I know it's his job to sell seats and shirts and generally market the Albion to make as successful as we can be. But do we really want to be trying to convert people who live in Portsmouth or Southampton or Gillingham territory? Remember the bitterness that some Brighton fans still have towards Charlton for trying to 'recruit' in Sussex. Wouldn't it be hypocritical of us to do the same in other areas?

    Personally I think our aim should be limited to having every person in Sussex supporting Brighton. That still leaves well over 1.5 million people in our natural catchment area. Isn't that enough?
    Not this again.

      Not me.

      I like the desire, the ambition, the winning mentality and the drive.

      We have dominated Sussex for, well, ever. Crawley are the only team to have come close.

      I think you're misinterpreting what he's saying,

      He's talking about dominating the south of England as opposed to going after the Asia market. Basically walking before you can run. Of course he would love it if we were sellable to overseas markets, but lets focus on being the biggest club in the south first. So it's not about pinching fans (ala Charlton) and more so about cementing our position nationally before venturing further afield.

      Makes a lot of sense to me - seems pragmatic.

      Really? I must admit I read it as meaning EXACTLY that - getting kids in Kent, Hampshire and so on to support the Albion. Otherwise where is this revenue coming from?

      Not me. I'm a considerate lover and always make sure that I spend a bit of time playing with the boobs and nibbling their ear before we get down to business. Ladies appreciate things like that.

      It was just a matter of time, considering. I sadly thought the same. Shame on me.(And you too Buzzer, loads of you lot too. Probably)
