    There was a moment during the second half of Brighton and Hove Albion’s narrow loss to FA Cup holders Arsenal which encapsulated everything which is great about Rohan Ince.

    After a dogged pursuit of Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, Ince extended one of his telescopic limbs and executed a perfectly timed sliding tackle on the Gunners’ talisman before rising to his feet and starting an Albion attack with a graceful canter

    After putting on what many consider to be their best performance of the season against Ipswich in the week, Albion will be looking to take that confidence into today’s fourth round clash in the FA Cup as they play host to holders Arsenal in front of a sell-out Amex crowd and the BT Sport cameras.

    Chris Hughton’s side sealed an emphatic third win of the season at home as goals from Sam Baldock and a Joao Teixeira brace saw them pick up a 3-2 victory over the Tractor Boys, who have been one of the hardest sides for teams to beat in the Championship this season.

    On the day that Deloitte published the football rich list, revealing that all the clubs in the Premier League last season are in the top 40 richest clubs in the world (and that included the likes of Palace), we've got out our magnifying glasses and taken a long look at the Albion accounts published last week.

    Albion 3 - 2 Ipswich

    What a night. Some commentators have opined, at times, that there is a stark choice to be made between playing to win, and playing to entertain. Albion fans this season, would have liked to have had either one. When it all comes together, it truly is the beautiful game.

    Following smug Eddie's plucky men fluffing their lines at Elland Road on Tuesday night, Ipswich arrived at the Amex, knowing that a win would put them top of the Championship table. More than one Tractor Boy tweeter

    With their unbeaten run of five games having come to an end at the weekend, Albion will be hoping to bounce back at the first attempt in tonight’s midweek Championship game against third placed Ipswich, with the visit of Arsenal in the FA Cup just round the corner.

    Chris Hughton saw his side beaten for the first time as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at the Amex to Brentford in his first home match since taking over as Brighton boss three weeks ago.

    Coming away from the game with nothing to show for it was harsh for the Seagulls to take, considering

    Albion 0 - 1 Brentford

    Since Boxing Day the world of Brighton and Hove Albion had been one undergoing big changes. A new manager had arrived, in Chris Hughton. The side had notched up three successive wins. We'd stopped conceding crap goals. A bit of luck had fallen our way. Even Chris O'Grady had become good.

    Indeed, much had changed since the last match at the Amex. And yet, nothing had changed...

    Having seen his new side pick up two wins in his opening games as Albion boss on the road, Chris Hughton takes charge of his first game at home in front of an expectant Amex crowd this afternoon as his players square off against Brentford for the second time in the space of three matches.

    With last weekend’s 1-0 victory at Charlton extending their unbeaten run to five games and moving them three points clear of the Championship relegation zone, things are starting to look

    The Rivals

    There was surprise recently when Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan announced he would stand as an opponent to incumbent Sepp Blatter at the FIFA congress on 29 May in Zurich. Blatter originally declared in 2011 that he would not be standing for re-election this year, partly on the grounds of his age (he will be 79 at the date of the vote).

    The History


    Blatter has held the role since 1998, and has been re-elected three times since then. FIFA's reputation has been sullied in relation to claims of financial irregularities and the nature

    Can we just switch next weekend’s game to Griffin Park?

    A third consecutive capital outing and a third straight win for Nathan Jones/ Chris Hughton’s men means that a day trip to London is more popular with Albion fans right now than Chas ‘n Dave at a Cockney knees up. Roll out the barrel, for while it’s still early days in the post-Hyypia regime

    With Chris Hughton’s reign as Albion boss getting off to a winning start in the FA Cup last weekend, Brighton’s new manager will now be looking to pick up his first points in the league with his side as they travel to The Valley to face an out-of-form Charlton side.

    The Seagulls left it late to make it through to the fourth round of the competition on Saturday, with Lewis Dunk opening the scoring on 88 minutes before Chris O’Grady made the game safe three minutes into added on time. They have been rewarded for that victory with a home tie against the current holders,

    Maybe someone asked for the wrong Crystal Palace striker.

    It sounded like a nasty rumour at first, but we hear there could be more to it than that and Andy Johnson, a man who very probably gets considered as a Crystal Palace legend, could be heading South down the M23 to bolster Chris Hughton's attacking

    It's been asked on Twitter numerous times already - "How much will Arsenal tickets be?"

    Paul Barber has gone on record previously to state that chairman Tony Bloom would not ramp up ticket prices on occasion of 'glamour' fixtures at the Amex, so there is no reason to believe that there will be ticket

    Two years to the day since it last happened, give or take, Albion will host Arsenal at the Amex in a repeat of the 2012-2013 FA Cup Fourth round tie.

    Albion fans, looking out for ball number 21 to appear, had an anxious wait. Eleven of the sixteen ties had been complete before ball 21 appeared. The all-important
