    Wish there had been NSC 35 years ago!
    That's the number for Albion information. Every day, 24 hours a day.

      What if we're 3-0 down?

      Salford were 4-0 down in a game after 80 minutes recently and ended up drawing 4-4.

      I've had regrets in the past believe me.
      My biggest one was not being able to get a ticket for the Beatles at the Hippodrome in 1963, as the queue was too long. I went with my friend to stand round the back to see them arrive. We stood there for the whole concert, but I had to be in at 10pm, I knew I would be in deep doo doo if I was late, so I left my autograph book with her and went back to Portslade.
      Not only did the Fab Four sign autographs but the stage door johnnies let fans go into the dressing room, ten at a time. I would have met them as well as getting their signatures.
      She was so excited at meeting them she forgot all about my book.

      I struggled with that one for years, but as I said, it didn't change anything. You can't turn the clock back.

      I don't want to re-hash the many threads on the topic but today possibly marks the end of a long era of regret resulting from leaving a game early.

      I was 12 years old and a season ticket holder. I'd travel to each home game on the No.2 bus from Shoreham. After the matches there would be massive queues for the bus home, and the buses that came along seemed to all go to Mile Oak or Hangleton with only the occasional 2 or 2a. So, if the match looked done and dusted, I'd leave at the 85 minute mark and be head of the queue. That is until the day in 1983 when we played Spurs at the Goldstone. As the 2nd half progressed, we didn't look like we were going to recover from 1-0 down, so I decided to cut my losses and head for the bus.

      As I started walking along the Old Shoreham Road I heard a massive cheer - we'd just equalised. I was annoyed but pleased .We'd gained a point and I was still going to get home early. Then, as I reached the bus stop, another roar. We'd come back with two goals in the last two minutes to gain a famous victory. And I'd missed it. Never has being front of the queue felt so worthless, the appearance of the bus coming over the hill felt like a dagger to my heart and I've never been so miserable being on the top deck at the front - I didn't even pretend to drive.

      From that day, I vowed never to leave a game early again and I never have. Through drubbings and drabbings, I've stayed until the bitter end because, as that match taught me, you just never know.

      This evening marks the first chance I've had in 35 years to see Brighton beat Spurs at home in the top flight. No matter what the score at 85 minutes, I'll be sticking around cos I may not be around in another 35 years.

      So, to the early leavers, I understand the attraction of leaving but I guarantee you won't spend 35 years regretting staying at a match or remembering the extra 30 minutes you had to queue. But you may end up regretting leaving and missing something magical.
      Very well said but after all this time the Albion God has forgiven you. Let's beat Spurs tonight and put this nightmare of yours finally to rest.
      We're going up, we're going to win the Cup, for Sussex by the Sea.

      We all know someone who went home at half time when 2-0 down to Leicester.

      I keep opening this thread to read the bus driving line again and again.

      That is all.

      Great post and so true.

      I have only ever left one game early which was the hammering we took from Bristol City at Withdean in one of McGhee's first games. I can't quite remember what was so bad about that game and many other defeats out of the hundreds I've been to that I felt I needed to leave early but I did. We obviously didn't make a miraculous comeback that day but it has stuck with me ever since and I still have a tinge of regret that I did it.

      This game...?

      What a great game... sirens in the backgrounds... 2 sendings off... and an extraordinary result!

      Is there something wrong with my sound? I was expecting a constant wall of noise and singing form the North Stand?

      Happy days

      Very possibly the finest thing I've ever seen written on NSC.
      I thought it was a lyric from a Smiths song to fair.
