    With our away record, I am always nervous venturing away from the Amex following dropped points at home. But on this year's evidence, we may well end up collecting more points away than we do on home soil...an emphatic win at Watford, and a brave performance to be proud of at the Etihad - add to the list the domination of Newcastle United live on SKY SPORTS PREMIER LEAGUE ULTRA HD ‘THE HOME OF ENGLISH FOOTBALL’, THE BEST PLACE TO WATCH VAR REVIEWS OR GO OUT FOR A CUPPA WHILE THEY REVIEW THE GOAL.

    Not for me, a splendid view from up in the Gods, my first time

    Back in 2010, Brighton and Hove Albion’s then manager Gus Poyet philosophised in his typical, charismatic way what football meant following an improbable draw against Charlton. The manager felt his team had been wronged by the referee as Albion were reduced to ten after just seven minutes, but instead chose to focus on what the team had achieved, and the incredible atmosphere.

    “It’s all about Brighton it’s all about Brighton. It’s

    For Premier League clubs, the transfer market is a complete minefield. Even with an occasional injection of funds from a big sale, it’s extremely difficult to get recruitment right. How many times have we seen clubs sell their big stars, with the aim to reinvest the cash in the squad and strengthen the team as a whole, only for the majority of the dosh to end up wasted on overpriced mediocrity?

    Whilst previously it was mostly strikers and exciting

    Before we embark on a new journey with Graham Potter at the helm, it’s still worth a look back at one of the standout performances from last season - Crystal Palace away. Any excuse, right? A fantastic setup from Hughton helped the Seagulls to a 1-2 victory, and a first league double over the Eagles since 1983/84, something to look back on with fondness forever despite a frankly rubbish second half of the season. Whilst we look forward with huge excitement to Potter’s brand of football; trust ...

    The abrupt sacking of Chris Hughton was quite a shock - not just, for the footballing world outside of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club, who appear decidedly outraged by the decision following the Albion’s survival - but for the fans too, despite a relative split on whether the decision was correct. It may have well happened sooner, at a more comprehensible time, after the disastrous loss against Cardiff. The Argus report that “Bloom contemplated a change on April 16 following the 2-0 home defeat by the ...

    After a defensive masterclass away at Wolves on Saturday, just when we needed it, Albion could approach this challenging midweek fixture with
    a degree of optimism. Something of a free-hit, but at this stage, every single point we can get could be hugely significant to whether we will be playing Premier League football in August.

    In the build-up to the game, Mr Andy Naylor of the Argus reported Hughton’s pleasure at seeing Kayal do so well after coming on early at Wolves for the injured Davy Pröpper. And quite right too - the tenacious midfielder has suffered from Hughton’s preference for the

    After the unthinkable happened on Tuesday, the Albion went into this game a measly two points ahead of Cardiff - with notable tricky fixtures to come. On a run of four straight league defeats, our home form completely deserting us... in all honesty, it’s been awful.

    And all this made Wolves a very, very, very big game - with Spurs away on Tuesday night, it was vital we stopped the slide, we got back to basics and achieved some sort of result. As hugely valuable as all points are at this stage, it was almost equally important

    Looking back on the game after a sobering and lengthy trek back up to Manchester, it would be tempting to file this game away as unremarkable - an expected result, a straightforward occasion, and a minor footnote in the story of Manchester
    City marching imperiously to an unprecedented potential quadruple.

    But after putting my key in the door at 6am Sunday morning, collapsing on my bed with my Albion scarf still draped around my neck, my mind refused sleep. I got out my laptop, after an enjoyable browse of NSC and #bhafc, rewatched the
    highlights in all their blue and white magnificence. This was a special day. Without question, a game that will live long in the memory, with all the pride and emotion to go with it.

    With positivity at an all-time high following the Albion’s dramatic FA Cup victory over Miiiiiiiiiillllllllwall, attention turned back to the league and Southampton at home. A very, very big game in the context of our season as a whole; win, and safety would be within our grasp. A loss, and we’d be looking nervously over our shoulders once again. After the lull and quiet of the International break, the fans were ready for the Albion adventure to explode into life again - it was time to ...
