    What's the most money you've ever won on BHAFC from the bookies?

    I won't ever forget Charlton away on a cold February night in 2010. The season was plodding on, with inconsistency the best way to describe it. The Withdean record was shocking but away form was promising with Gus Poyet sorting out the players he wanted and promising loan signings like Arismendi from Stoke on loan, valued at £3m.

    Brighton were 13/2 to win at high-flying Charlton but a HUGE 25/1 to win 2-1 on the correct score. I had a tenner on that and was ecstatic when Charlton grabbed a consolation deep in injury time. £260 is the most I've won on a single match.

    I'm sure a lot of fans have done a correct scorecast or maybe to win the League One title in 2011? McShane and 1-0 to win at the scum going back a bit further? What's your biggest win on the Seagulls?

      Like many, I had money on Paul McShane as 1st and last goalscorer at Selhurst Park that night. I think I had £2 on each at 40/1

      It might have been 80/1 actually.

      Had £50 e/w on Zamora at 25/1 to be Div 1 top scorer. Won just over £1,700.

      The season before £100 win on Brighton to win Div 2 at 10/1.

      About £1500 in the Double Championes season at Withdean, with several smallish bets starting at prices as high as 25/1.

      Having said that, blindly betting this season on Murray and Knocky to score anytime in every game for a fixed stake looks highly likely to produce as big an overall profit.

      Remember Gus taking us down to Cardiff. Had Orlandi £10 first scorer 2-0 @200-1. Got back to mate's place in Dardy and hadn't confirmed the ****** bet. Always read the betting confirmation to myself now.

      Otherwise always won on correct scores when we had our run against Liverpool in the 80's and not much else.

      £800

      Coincidentally from a bet staked the day I signed up to NSC.

      Viewing as a guest I saw the breaking news that Zamora had signed and the independent bookie near my work had a 16-1 win only special offer for the title. £50 on and I thought it a good idea to sign up to NSC to alert people to the offer.
      Think of how stupid the average person is....
      ........and realise half of them are stupider than that.

      Wasn't Leon Knight near the top goalscorer charts at the end of 2003/2004?

      Memory not what it was but he was around 50/1?

      I don't remember the year, but I'm sure some will. Leicester away around 10 years back? When Virgo got put up top, he was still 33/1 in a lot of bookies first goalscorer. I know a lot of people who won fairly big on this, as I'm sure people on here probably did, too.
      It's a deal, it's a steal, it's the sale of the f*cking century.

      August Bank Holiday 2004/05. Don't know why they did away with that round of fixtures. Good weather and attendances.
