      In no particular order:

      A sense of ownership and having made a genuine (if small compared to many) contribution to the survival and success of the club
      Friends
      A smug feeling that, when it comes to football, I get it more than armchair fans of top clubs

      Most of my friends seem to support Arsenal and have never experienced relegation or promotion and I am not in the slightest bit envious.
      Absolutely this. Those poor *******s, supporting their soulless, sterile clubs, with their pseudo problems. As a relative newcomer to the fold, being a relative newcomer to the city, I did not live through the big highs and lows of recent decades, but what a fantastic club, and what a great story. I'm very, very happy I stumbled across the old BHAFC. My son is Brighton born and bred, and has the club in his blood, he never has and never would DREAM of supporting anyone else.

      Being proud of my home city and my roots is why I had passion and loved the Albion for many years like most.

      Sadly my passion for football is at an all time low and although I loved last season I really can't stand the premiership and the football is rather dull to be fair with few goals and little entertainment.... way too much money ruining the game also.

      First time ever I've not checked on the latest scores in the last two games for decades as the premiership just doesn't float my boat.
      UP THE ALBION!!!!!

      The great Sir Bobby Robson sums it up perfectly for me

      What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It's not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It's the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

      It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.

      Constantly being the underdog, persevering and succeeding.

      Owner is a decent guy and supporter.

      I feel BHA identifies with the old RAF Regt motto: Per Įrdua ad Astra (Through adversity to the stars).

      My local club, to which I first viewed live footy.
      So many things I could add, but Brighton & Hove Albion says it all
