    "We're top of the league, we're top of the league, Financial Fair Play, we're top of the league", so sang an Albion wag at Birmingham yesterday as yet another five yard pass from JFC went to an opponent or bounced off CMS's shin.

    Sadly the analysis was about as accurate as the Albion's ...

    Across Sussex and beyond Albion fans gathered around transistor radios, television sets and iPads this evening to find out who were to be the Albion's next victims on what is already one of the better League Cup runs for quite some time.

    In what must be the most bizarre draw in the history of Cup competitions ever, the Albion managed to avoid one of many cock-ups to emerge with a trip to magic roundabout land.

    With first round exits to such giants of the game as Newport County, Swindon (uh oh) and Northampton in recent years, the Albion are already in nosebleed territory being a mere 540 minutes (plus extra-time and penalties if required) from Wembley.

    Albion fans hoping for a glamour tie in the second round of the Capital One Cup will be left disappointed due to the mechanics of the draw, which takes place on Sky immediately after this evening's Coventry v Cardiff televised first round clash.

    Thirteen Premier League clubs enter the competition in the second round with the remaining seven joining in Round 3 as they are involved in European competition.

    The draw is seeded, with the top 12 Football League clubs still in the competition (based on last season’s finishing positions), including the Albion, joining the 13 Premier League clubs as seeds.

    Unseeded ...

    "One Club. One Vision" - the over-sized words, accompanied by the Albion's current pinup boy, Jake Forster-Caskey, greets Albion fans as they approach the refitted and Nike-d up club shop at the Amex.


    There has been some light fun poked at just what the new strap line could mean, which is cropping up on many things the club currently output, as well as some more serious discussion.

    "One Club, League One Ambition" has been suggested, as supporters express growing concern at the strength of the Albion's squad after a disappointing season opener whilst "One Club. One Manager a Season." needs no further explanation.

    It's a sign of the modern footballing times that many aspects of big business have become associated with football clubs that, in the past, wouldn't have known a mission statement from a SWOT Analysis Matrix (no, neither do we).

    Entire forests of newsprint, and terabytes of online opinion, have been devoted to the 'evils' of Premiership footballers' salaries.

    We've read how Rio Ferdinand should be addressing the famine in southern Africa, instead of test-driving the latest Bentley, and how Michael Owen now owns North Wales and most of Cheshire. Ashley Cole himself, told us in print, about the time he threw his mobile phone, at the sheer anguish of hearing ...

    Incredible times to be an Albion fan right now, but disorientating too. Since when did the Albion make multiple seven-figure bids for potential signings, appoint glamorous, world famous personalities as manager or commission the building of state of the art stadia?

    Like everybody, I'm desperately excited about the imminent debut visit to the promised land, and revelling in sharing news of ...

    As Ashley Barnes poked the ball home and the Withdean faithful rose to celebrate the Albion’s fifth goal of an incredible New Year’s Day victory over Leyton Orient, a bald man in a cap looked on, frustrated, forgotten, but determined to put things right…



    Russell Slade had been appointed Orient manager in April 2010, and, despite having successfully negated ...

    …And so it came to pass, Lord Gustavo Augusto Poyet Domínguez lead Brighton on a merry dance to promotion with five games to spare and the title with four, to the promised land of the Championship. In the space of 16 months, he has transformed a team hovering at the wrong end of League One into a sleek passing, ball hogging, tippy-tappy outfit destined for greater things (certainly greater than Round One of the Johnstone Paint Trophy).
