    And they took Earnshaw off just minutes before Stoke scored
    their first goal. Another case of premature substitution.

    Or was it that his spaceship was ready to leave?

    Extract From The Latest Mills and Boon Novel....With
    writing like this there really is no need for pictures! Or is there

    We met in a secluded field, the sun nearly kissing the
    evening horizon. The warm breeze was full of that earthy,
    musky scent that only those fortunate enough to live outside
    the urban rat race know, and a quiet whispering of leaves in the
    weeping willow overhead added the final touch to the most
    romantic scene.

    We lay there, both naked. I knew I had to have her, and have
    her now.

    Without a word being spoken, I moved to a position of
    dominance. I could feel instantly that this was what she was
    waiting for as she frantically thrust her pelvis at my approaching
    organ. I moved slowly at first, inch by inch, until I was fully
    inside her. Then as the tension rose, we threw caution to the
    wind and abandoned ourselves to the moment.

    Although inexperienced, she approached every change of
    position with enthusiasm, moaning with despair every time I
    withdrew to prevent myself ending it all too soon. As the sexual
    tension heightened towards the inevitable mind blowing climax,
    it was all I could do to hold out any longer. Finally, the moment
    we had been building up to was upon us, and passed all too
    quickly. Breathlessly we rolled together in the now damp
    grass.

    As the last deep orange glow of the long setting sun melted
    into the darkness of approaching night, we lay there still
    entwined in an amorous embrace. I kissed her long and lovingly,
    and whispered assuringly how good she had been. She tenderly
    and sensuously licked my inner ear then whispered, 'Baaa'
    and rejoined the flock.

    Peter Taylor was last seen in Cardiff last week.

    Apparently he was about to sign an £8m contract when he took
    one look at your players and realised he'd actually have to
    mould a team of his own in order to win anything, so he turned
    the job down.

    Mind you, I suppose you'll play teams such as those at midnight
    on Sundays, or 2pm on a Thursday afternoon, or some equally
    ridiculous time designed to keep visiting fans away.
    After all, you've got to keep the local residents happy, eh lads?

    It's a fair question though. Now you have moved up a division,
    how many games will the local authorities actually allow you to
    play on Saturdays? Four? Five? Six?

    And how many years will it be exactly until you've actually got
    a football ground to call your own? Three? Four? Five? Six?

    How long will you be able to sustain First Division football at
    the Withdean with crowds of just 6,800 and no TV revenue?
    A year? Two years? Three years?

    Keep laughing lads. He who laughs last.....

    Thursday, May 09, 2002 - 12:14 pm

    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Now let me see. We currently have the following:

    1) A football ground that holds 21,000.

    2) Enough fans to fill it (fickle though many of them are).

    3) Very good prospects of new ground that will hold 30,000
    (to start with).

    4) A rich chairman who is prepared to spend shedloads of
    money in order to make the club a success and himself a
    bucket-load of cash into the bargain.

    5) No need to sell our best players to make ends meet.

    6) An experienced manager with a proven track record who
    knows his way around the lower leagues and has plenty of
    valuable contacts in the higher divisions.

    This season we missed out on promotion by just one point,
    despite the fact that we had an idiot in charge of the team for
    most of the campaign. It would've been remarkable if we'd
    have managed to get promoted with the handicap that was
    Alan Cork, but amazingly we still came very close.

    During the summer there are likely to be plenty of changes at
    Ninian Park as the new manager (who has a record of just one
    defeat in fifteen matches since he took over) sorts out the
    mess that the previous job-holder left behind.

    Several of Cork's hopeless big-money signings will be released
    on free transfers just to ease the wage bill. It has been
    suggested that as many as 12 players could be leaving the
    club soon.

    The signings that Lawrence has made since he took over are
    Campbell (£900,000, former England Under-21 international,
    has already scored plaenty o goals for us), Croft
    (left-back on loan from Premiership Ipswich Town) and Bywater
    (England Under-21 interantional goalkeeper who is being linked
    with a permanent move this week).

    Plenty of grounds for optimism there I would suggest. It doesn't
    look like Lawrence will do a Cork and spend silly money on
    rubbish players. Now, I'm not going to say that we'll
    run away with the Second Division next season, but our
    prospects for promotion are clear for all to see. Don't be
    surprised if we're the bookies' favourites come August.

    So, what about the mighty Albion then. What about the team
    whose fans keep flooding our message boards with claims
    that they are a bigger club than us. What have they got?

    1) First Division football, although that won't make any
    difference to the finances because they already fill their rented
    6,800 capacity ground anyway.

    2) A brilliant young striker who has just been included in the
    England Under-21 squad. Almost certain to be sold soon in
    order to balance the books.

    3) Faint hopes of a new ground to built sometime in the distant
    future, although the local council don't look too keen on the
    idea at all.

    4) Very little money available to strengthen their small and
    unimpressive squad.

    5) No manager. Yet again.

    How long can they hope to sustain First Division football with
    that little lot? Can Brighton & Hove Albion possibly maintain
    progress with no ground, no money and no manager? We'll see.

    If Brighton as a club has such a bright future, how come three
    managers and a first team coach have walked away at the
    earliest opportunity during the last few years?

    Bet you can't wait for the new season. Should be great fun
    visiting the likes of Wolves, Derby, Leicester, Palace, etc,
    week after week. And getting beat week after week.

    Maybe you'd better get the thermals ready. Could be a long,
    cold winter.........

    You have to laugh. Why do Cardiff fans assume we'll lose every
    week? We *still* have King Bobby, we *are* in division 1, we
    play at a fortress (that his jokers haven't scored at in
    3 attempts), Falmer has yet to be derailed, we have lured two
    of the best managers in the game to our club in recent times
    (unlike his lot).

    The bottom line is that the worst that can happen is that by the
    end of the season, we'll be as bad Cardiff are now.

    OMG....questions from Cardiff fans posted on here asking how
    Albion will fare in a higher division next season. Predicting that
    we will struggle all season and doubting that we will
    survive. Sounds familiar doesn't it? Just like last summer!
    Mind you they got TWO things right then. 1. We didn't STAY in
    division two. 2. We are now in DIFFERENT DIVISIONS!!

    You want to know how cardiff got on in the play offs eh.

    That massive club Cardiff are still in division 2 due to a 90th
    minute equaliser from stoke and then a deflected free kick in
    extra time. It is not just that they are in division 2 it is
    the way they managed to stay there.
    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    and they might lose uncle sam

    How many Brighton strikers have scored a winning goal on

    GET IN THERE!

    Wales 1 Germany 0 (Robert Earnshaw (Cardiff City), 46 mins).

    Fair dos, Earnshaw. We'd be equally proud if that was one of
    our players even though Germany were a shadow of the side
    that they have been recently.

    No doubt your message board is littered with "Earnshaw is
    better than Zamora" type guff after this performance despite
    two seasons of evidence to the contrary.

    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Not wanting to take anything away from Earnshaw's
    achievement, but were the Germans really trying last night?
    If I was in a World Cup squad there's no way I'd be risking my
    summer on a friendly in Wales.

    As for all the other guff about how we are going to stay in first
    division, think about this:

    The first division is very poor. Apart from the top five or six
    clubs, most of the sides will be not a lot better than some of
    the better sides in Div 2. Look at Millwall's success and
    Rotherham's easy survival. Christ, even Wallsall stayed up.
    The fact of the matter is that many of the clubs in that division
    are crippled by debts. Look at Forest, less than a quarter
    of a century ago they were European Champions. I would even
    go as far as to say that if you played a representative match
    and between 2001/2002 div 1 and 2 teams, if you excluded
    the Man City players, i reckon Div 2 would win. Handsomely.
    This, all you Blueturds, is why we are going to survive.
    Unfortunately for Cardiff, with all their posturing and
    mouthing off and getting other teams backs up, making away
    matches tough for their team, the best they can hope for is the
    playoffs, will there be a lap of honour this time? I don't think so!


    A Taffy, But Not THE Taffy (62.6.250.107)
    Wednesday, May 15, 2002 - 03:10 pm

    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Rob, the Germans had three booked, Wales two, it was an
    'enthusiastic' contest to say the least, and the Germans
    certainly didn't like it up 'em. Make no mistake, they were doing
    their level best to win and they did hit the woodwork twice.
    Wales were just excellent on the night, Savage, Speed and
    Earnshaw in particular (Giggs was quiet and was actually rated
    as the least effective Welsh player in our local papers today).

    As for the posturing and mouthing off by City fans, maybe
    you're not aware but the cardiff boards are regularly full of
    Albion fans posturing and mouthing off. When we got beat by
    Stoke there were more Brighton fans on our sites than Stoke.
    And there are anti-Cardiff threads started on here almost
    every day.

    It goes both ways. I think too many of your fans got fooled by
    whoever this Taffy @rse was when he was posting on here.
    I'm amazed anyone believed he was a Cardiff fan when he
    was so obviously a wind-up merchant.

    That said, you have got a sh!t ground! And no manager!
    And Zamora will be off soon! And you'll go down next season!
    And, oh, you know rest already!

    I'm not so sure about your theories.

    We have made cyber friends(?) with a few of your supporters,
    Quint being the bloke that springs to mind. Fair point, I admit
    to havng a look at your message board and having a
    laugh after the Stoke game.

    That said, Taffy is certainly not the only one, there are plenty
    of yours, as I am sure there are plenty of ours, who go around giving it the big 'I am'.

    As far as your international success last night is concerned,
    Well Done. You beat a reasonable German side. Congratulations.
    See you in Japan and Ko....ooops sorry. Maybe not.

    As for your points about us.
    1) Yup, our ground is terrible, mind you, I'd rather have a
    bad ground that we win at all the time than a super stadium
    and keep losing there. I sometimes think that our home
    record is a worthy trade off for the dump we have to put up
    with. Remember, we would rather be at Falmer, away fans
    always think it hurts us when they slate Withers,
    NEWSFLASH: It's awful, but it's better than Gillingham.
    2) Nah, we've got at least another season of Bobby inflicting
    marvellous goals, intelligent runs, power headers, sublime
    skill and about 25 goals a season on us!
    3) As far as relegation is concerned, there are plenty of worse
    sides in that division than us, we may not go up again, but
    we will stay up, mark my words.

    Latest reports state that the entire england squad have come
    down with an illness, which has meant they are unable to
    travel to Japan....

    ....this mysterious illness has, as yet, not been identified,
    however, it has affected nearly every English player with the
    exception of 22 and a young lad named Bobby Zamora....

    ....it is still unclear how the players became ill, but there have
    been reports of masked men wearing blue and white shirts,
    who have been selling off SEAGULL meat to the restaurants
    where all english players have recently eaten...

    ....it is believed that this meat could have been the cause of
    the outbreak....

    ....Bobby Zamora who recently made his debut with the
    under 21 side, who have had to pull out of the tournament
    in Switzerland, is said to be over the moon with the decision
    to call him up to the squad and is expected to play a major
    role in the English World Cup Squad....

    ....Fortunately all english players effected by this outbreak are
    expected to recover by August....

    ....Unfortunately a similar outbreak has meant that all Welsh
    players will no longer be able to play and indeed Cardiff City
    Players and all those associated with Cardiff are expected to
    lose all footballing capabilties (no change there then)....

    NEWS JUST IN....a batch of seagull meat on its way to
    Crystal Palace has recently been intercepted by the police.....

    have viewers in fits of laughter.

    If there are any bardiff supporter on here please feel free to
    change clubs ( not ours though) as you now are going down

    pie in the sky, but nevertheless I thouight you'd be talking
    about it.

    Either that, or I thought you'd be talking about your new
    manager. You must have one by now, surely?

    No ground, no manager. Same old story.

      All in the past, DC, all in the past my son.

      It's the future that's important. And you aint got one.

      Why is it that your last three managers walked away as soon
      as they could? Why did you have players putting in transfer
      requests (that have yet to be withdrawn) when you were at
      the top of the league? How come a club that has won two
      championships on the trot can't attract a new manager or

      sustain First Division football on crowds of less than 7,000
      at a rented athletics stadium? How long is it going to take

      away leaving the club in a far better state than their

      Right, I've stayed off this thread for long enough, so here goes.

      Cardiff won the FA cup thanks to an incredible blunder by the
      Arsenal goalkeepr at a time when my nan was still in nappies.

      At the end of the day, we can only base our opinions on facts.
      It is a fact that Brighton and Hove Albion have finished higher
      than Cardiff City for the past two seasons.

      It is a fact that even if the Albion lose every game next season
      and Cardiff win all theirs, we will finish above you. It is a fact
      that we haven't lost to you for the past two years.

      The trouble with Cardiff is that they always go on about the
      future. Well listen up, the future never comes.We will be
      playing division one football come August. You will be
      plaing in division two.

      Obviously Cardiff is still a name that makes the Bernabeu
      tremble. Was the Real Madrid game around the same time
      as the Arsenal game - 1927? Probably around 1961 - that
      recent.

      Here's a thought : everytime those mighty bluebirds check
      the results next season here's a reminder - Brighton are the
      table above. Every week. Back to back.

      Pat: No, CCFC don't actually own Ninian Park, the local
      council do. But the club has a low-rent lease agreement
      with the council that stretches for the next 80 years or so,
      so we have no worries on that front. We will not be moving
      across the road to the Cardiff Athletics Stadium in my lifetime,
      let's put it that way.

      BHA = Div One: 1971 as it happens. 1-0 at Ninian Park.
      Crowd of over 50,000 there to see it. Imagine that! Must
      be difficult when you play at a ground that has just 6,800
      seats, most of which are temporary, but try to imagine it
      all the same. I wonder if anyone in Madrid has ever heard of
      Brighton & Hove Albion?

      Here's a thought: Brighton are a club with no future. You
      have no manager, a board with no money to spend, no
      ground, a council that won't give you permission to build a
      new one (or at least not for years anyway), a small squad
      with very few quality players, and no hope of attracting any
      new quality players because your club doesn't have the money
      for either transfer fees or wages.

      Brighton & Hove City Council have already decided that they

      So Danny Wilson, manager of Bristol City (that's the Bristol

      season, who currently have a cash crisis and who are having
      to sell a number of their better players to survive), couldn't
      even be bothered to speak to Brighton about the VACANT
      managerial position at wonderful Withdean. Oh dear, how
      sad, never mind!!!

      Looks like the word is well and truly out on the football
      grapevine that B&HA are a club with no potential for the
      future (ie: no money, no ground, board of directors who are
      out of their depth, etc etc).

      It seems that good old Uncle Dick will now have to put his

      This is a great thread! It must be one of the longest in the

      Of course, you took the opportunity to laugh at our expense
      when our play-offs bid failed, but since then things have all
      gone a little bit pear-shaped for you, haven't they?

      Manager walks out, no new manager comes in (and none seem
      interested in the job by all accounts), no real progress on the
      new ground scheme, no new players arrive, a couple of last
      year's squad move on to pastures greener, a couple more
      are rumoured to be about to do so. You could be in for a
      fascinating season. I'll make no predictions about us, but
      I tell you what - you're going DOWN! That must be a
      banker bet! So let's keep this thread at the top. It'll be
      interesting to see how long your laughter lasts.

      It's also interesting to see that you've posted up pictures

      Its quite easy to get these Championships mixed up, trying to
      match the right trophy with the right year. For those of you in
      Wales trophies are those silvery cups that get paraded round
      Brighton and Hove every year. Explaining this to also rans is....

      So if Taylor is holding the TROPHY it must be the Division 2
      one. Shouldn't forget to mention that, as well as the LDV,
      the FA Cup starts in November for some COUNTRIES, ie Wales.

      So, a reminder. If Taylor is holding the trophy it must be
      2001/2...

      The moral of the story (again) is that some of us are
      GUARANTEED a place in the FA Cup 3rd draw and some face
      a game in November.

      Good to see a few pics of Peter Taylor with the championship
      trophy. He was gone the next day, wasn't he? Memories, eh?

      Perhaps you could post up a few pics of Micky Adams with the
      previous year's trophy too. They would be about as relevant!

      Imagine that - a manager guides a club to a championship
      success and then walks out. And that's happened to you
      twice in two seasons! Be honest, the Albion must be rotten
      to the core behind the scenes. What did they know that you
      lot dont I wonder? Or was it just the no ground / no training
      facilities / no money / no potential / no hope thing? I dunno,
      these managers, huh? So demanding!

      Our manager, Mr Lennie 'Brighton Boy' Lawrence, signed a
      midfielder from Bradford City for us on Monday, and today
      he's agreed a fee of £500,000 for a left back from Barnsley.
      Unfortunately, his bid for Rangers' Tony Vidmar fell through,
      but you cant win 'em all! I'm just glad to see he's been busy.

      What's your manager been up to recently then? Who is he in
      negotiations with? After all, you're sure to need a fair few new
      players to be able to compete in the First Division, what with
      the better standard of football and a couple of last year's
      squad already having left and all that.

      Oh, sorry! I forgot!

      HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

      PS: Not a very flattering pic of Sir Bobby Zamora (fantastic

      The word "free" seems to appear more than once. Big league
      stuff.

      "Undisclosed fee" = too embarrassing to mention, probably
      11 training tops.

      And what exactly is "completuing"?

      We are certainly going to enjoy taking 3000 away every
      game next season. Thats a big bonus of being in Division
      ONE - nice stadiums and big away allocations. Wonder what
      the capacity is at Cheltenham.

      Anyway, a big salut to all the big money signings in south
      wales - home of basement football.

      I can help you out with the 'undisclosed' fee BHA. It is in fact
      £500,000, with a further £100,000 to Barnsley if we are
      promoted.

      Still no news on the manager front then. Less than a month
      to go to the start of the new season, and still no manager.
      No new signings either. Bit of a mess really, isn't it?

      There are winners and there are losers. Since we are in

      makes us, er, the former....

      As for this Barnsley reject and the supposed 500k fee far
      be from me to mention why a Division TWO club (checked
      out the capacity of Cheltenham yet?) would spend such an
      amount on a player from a fellow Division TWO club. Top
      deal there - spending half a mil' on a player from a
      relegated club.

      Cardiff - where spending £9m (plus 500k for a Barnsley
      player) gets you a trip to Cheltenham.

      Ooooh, you boys get so upset!

      Tell you what. Cheer yourselves up. Earn a bit of money
      during the coming season. Cardiff City can still be backed at
      11/4 for the 2nd Division title. Not a bad price at all considering.

      Brighton can also be backed at around 15/8 to be relegated.
      And let's face it, that's a certainty. Any club that extends
      Chippy Carpenter's contract whilst in the First Division is
      expecting to be relegated. Fact. He was barely up to
      Second Division standard, let alone First Division! Three
      more years? My God, his agent must be top notch!

      So, the double pays almost 10/1! GET ON! Come on punters,
      you can't miss this one, wherever your loyalty lies.

      £50 will pay you £539-00! EASY MONEY!

      Stop bitching and place your bets......

      Whilst I think about it, still no manager then?

      I quote: Chippy Carpenter was barely up to second

      Oh my god, how on earth did he getto become a regular
      in the team the won the title last year then.

      This is the most boring and repetitive thing ever. BHA are
      in division one. They won division two last year. Cardiff are
      in division two. They finished third (was it? I dunno, lets face
      it, I had no interest in anything lower than top spot) and
      screwed up in the playoffs against a Stoke side that
      were enduring a fans revolt against their manager
      becasue they thought he was producing a poor team.

      I would request that for all the time that Brighton are
      champions of the second division CHAMPIONS, all clubs still
      residing in that division refer to them not as BHA or Gayboys
      or anything other than their true title: THE CHAMPIONS.

      I hereby refuse to recognise any thread which second division
      fans contribute to when they refer to the team that topped
      their division last season by any other name than THE CHAMPIONS

      Laughing Bluebird, maybe you should look at it from a
      different angle. Carpenter didn't fit into your team of
      underachievers but got succesive promotions with us.
      Thorpe and Kavanagh didn't fit into Stoke's team so you
      bought them for £1million plus each and the team you
      bought them from also got promoted. The lack of CHARACTER
      (something Albion have in abundance)in the Cardiff team
      means you will be playing Boston United and all the other
      BIG div 2 teams AGAIN. Can't think why your laughing,
      unless it's a manic nervous laugh at your manager's
      cock ups!

      We don't know if they are up to Division 1 standard yet but
      what we do know is they were top of the tree as far as
      division 2 was concerned, something your own teams
      expensives signings have yet to do, and that they are
      prepared to knuckle down and play for the shirt, again
      something your overpaid, overpriced division two failures
      never managed.

      As for being the bookies favourites to go up this year, I do
      believe you were quite highly fancied last year but purely
      on the basis that you spent lots of money.

      Isn't it time you concentrated on your real rivals for that
      valued piece of silverware that you did manage to win.

      IG: Carpenter did fit into our team - we didn't want him
      to leave, but he went a couple of months before Hammam
      took over at a time when there was great uncertainty as
      to what was going to happen at the club. I personally rated
      him at Third Division level, and I was surprised by how well
      he did for you at Second Division level. I'll be absolutely
      amazed if he can do a similar job at First Division level.
      He's a reasonable player, but he's not that good. He'll be
      found out in the First.

      Oatway, on the other hand, is rubbish. Plain and simple.
      Whoever gave him another two-year contract must've
      either been having a laugh or been desperate. Either way
      it doesn't bode well for your chances this season.

      Don't know who Thorpe is - I presume you mean Peter
      Thorne. He'll score plenty this coming season, provided he
      stays clear of injuries, so no worries on that score. Our
      manager made very few cock-ups last season. He did a
      great job. It was the bald tosspot who he took over from
      that made all the mistakes. So no worries on that score either!

      Boston United have just been promoted to the Third
      Division, not the Second.

      Mike: CCFC were 14/1 shots to win the Second Division
      last year. The best price available this morning is 10/3.
      I'd get on sharpish if I were you.

      Carpenter, Oatway and no manager. Pre-season's going well
      then!

      Having seen loads of Stoke games when Kav and Thorne
      were playing for them I can say this:

      Kav is an overrated big head who is just after big pay
      cheques and would no way 'die for the cause'.

      Yet again you will be lucky to get more than 20 games a
      season from Thorney. And to my knowledge, no player has
      ever scored from the treatment table.

      Look at it this way. Last season, Brighton and Cardiff were
      in the same division. Brighton won that division, Cardiff didn't.
      Brighton got promoted, Cardiff didn't. Whatever way you
      look at it, that makes Brighton a bigger club than Cardiff at
      this moment in time.

      Whatever happens this season, BHA will finish higher in the
      league structure than Cardiff. Brighton have effectively won
      themselves a crack at the Premiership (however unlikely we
      are to get there), Cardiff must huff and puff their way
      through division two.

      Let's face it, no matter how much money you chuch at
      something, things will not be amazingly different. Last
      year;s overpriced, over paid prima donnas will be replaced
      ny this years at Ninian. Just look at Leeds.

      Manager or no manager, Carpenter or no Carpenter, we
      are in a higher division. End of argument.

      BTW William Hill, Laughing Bluebird, what odds are there
      on BHA staying up and Cardiff staying down? Deffo worth
      £50 of anybody's money...

      There is a very big difference between this season and last

      Martin who? That would be Martin Hinshelwood, the first
      team coach from last season. That would be the first team
      coach of the first team who won division two last year.

      All too often in football you see change for the sake of
      change. Why change the winning formula that we clearly
      already have. Not us. No need to sack the manager each
      season, no need to overhaul the playing staff each July.
      If it ain't broke, don't tamper.

      At this point I would like to add that I am allowed to refer
      to the Albion as Brighton. Only lower league fans (particularly
      ones in the same division as us last year) need refer to us
      as THE CHAMPIONS, as always, your cooperations is greatly
      appreciated.

      We could speculate til we're blue in the face, but at the end
      of it all, the laughter I hear is from a fan of a club who could
      by the end of the season finish a whole 48 places lower than
      us. Unlikely, but not impossible. What are the odds on Cardiff
      finishing in a higher position in the leauge structure that
      Brighton this season? I would imagine the odds on that
      would allow you to purchase the whole Real Madrid team for
      your £1 stake.

      The conundrum is this. Will Brighton stay up this season?
      I don't know the answer, and for all their posturing, nor does
      anyone else. But for the record, I am going to enjoy going
      to the City Ground and Hillsborough. Hope you are looking
      forward to the trip to Field Mill with the same vigour. Try
      not to screw up promotion this year boys and then we can
      play each other again. Maybe....

      Almost all valid points I confess.

      However, your 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' theory doesn't
      really ring true, does it? After all, if your chairman really
      thought that Hinshelwood was up to the job, why didn't
      he appoint him months ago? Why has DK spent the summer
      trying to bring in other people instead?

      Hinshelwood's appointment smacks of desperation to me.
      I can't find a price on THE CHAMPIONS being relegated at
      the moment, but I should think it's shortened up considerably
      after last night's announcement.

      Carpenter and Oatway on new, improved contracts and

      He says he interviewed other candidates, but for various
      reason they weren't offered the job. Agreed these reasons
      may be limited bidget and poor facilities and the like, but
      at the end of the day, I believe that DK has made a decision
      that he thinks is best for the club. I would imagine that
      money could have been raised from somewhere, but even
      with a big name manager and whoever he may bring in,
      let's be realistic, things could go wrogn anf then we would
      be left with a big wage billa nd players who didn't really
      want to be there, as well as having to sack an expensive
      manager.

      Not particularly ambitious, granted, but then again, as you

      the best we can hope for. Every match is like a cup final for

      Has your youth team coach made any signings yet? Surely
      a manager as well known and well respected throughout the
      game as Martin Hinshelwood will have no trouble at all
      attracting quality players to your club given B&HA's (aka
      The Champions) fine stadium, excellent facilities and healthy
      finances......

      No signings so far then?

      Cardiff + £9m + "MASSIVE" potential still = Div 2

      Plus STILL ain't had an answer to what Cardiff's allocation
      away at Cheltenham is going to be. Any offers? BHA's first
      away allocation - 4,000; fans taking this up? 4000.

      btw, any more crap div 2 frees on their way to Ninny Park?

      Gary Croft (LB) has just joined us on a free from Ipswich,
      while Martin Margetson (GK) is on trial with a view to a free
      from Huddersfield. Lots of transfer activity here. How about
      your lot? Still no news?

      Don't know what our allocation at Cheltenham will be. Small
      I should think, as they have a small ground, but then you'd
      expect that as they were a non-league side not so very long
      ago. I expect their ground is no bigger than, say, the
      Withdean Stadium.

      Good to hear that you are taking plenty of fans up north
      to swell Burnley's coffers. I bet they'll be very grateful for
      your cash given the rising cost of football these days.
      Pity really that you can only get 6,800 into your joke of a
      ground. Not much money to be made there.

      Still, as soon as you start getting stuffed week in, week
      out, you're not likely to fill it anyway, so I suppose the
      small capacity won't really matter too much in the long
      run. After all, you couldn't fill it for a couple of FA Cup
      ties last year when you were on your way to a second
      successive championship. Sad really.

      Just think, we'll be getting crowds twice the size of yours
      on a regular basis despite the fact that we'll be playing in
      a lower division. We'll have bigger crowds for the visits of
      the likes of Cheltenham, Mansfield and Colchester, than
      you'll get for the visits of Wolves, Derby and Coventry.
      It's a funny old game!

      ok forget the small ground sh1t who had the best away
      following last season?
      see we only get 6800 cos thats full.
      why do we take more fans away than you lot?
      cos we are a bigger club end of story
      not so long ago you had an average of 3000 odd
      and we had the same playing in kent about 75 miles away.
      i think i have made my point

      Bigger club end of story?

      You haven't even got your own ground! I would concede
      that the circumstances that led to this situation were
      unfortunate to say the least, but nevertheless the fact remains.

      Twice last season you couldn't fill the athletics stadium.
      How come? Big clubs get big crowds don't they?

      Anyway, enough of this 'my club is bigger than yours'
      nonsense. It's stupid, and, as things stand (with you having
      no ground) it's an impossible point to argue, as I don't
      believe a club's 'size' can be gauged by anything other
      than it's attendances, and you are clearly at a disadvantage
      on that front through no fault of your own.

      However, I will say this - this thread is supposed to be all
      about Brighton (aka The Champions) laughing at Cardiff
      because The Bluebirds failed to get promoted last season
      when B&HA succeeded. That failure seems to have given
      you lot a great deal of pleasure, which I can only assume
      is derived from the fact that we are currently the 'haves'
      (stadium, crowds, players, money, etc), while you are
      the 'have nots'. Fair enough. Every dog has his day, and
      you've had two on the trot. Well played.

      Nevertheless, your long-term future still looks bleak with
      the Falmer thing dragging on and on, with a chairman who
      has no financial firepower, with a youth team coach as a
      manager and with players like Carpenter and Oatway
      getting new contracts.

      Therefore, I have no doubt whatsoever that we will have
      the last laugh. I think I'll stick around for a while to
      deliver it.

      But how do we pay for all that Silver polish that we now
      have to buy. I am assuming that we bought the empty
      trophy cabinet from that nice Mr Hamman in Cardiff as
      he obviously couldn't find a use for it.

      ok fair play about the home games but did you answer
      my question about away games?
      we had the best away following last season and the season
      before. what do you have to say to that?
      and as we both get the same amount of tickets for away
      games why did we take more?
      bigger club
      better fans ( sorry to the decent cardiff fans)
      players that play with pride. ( not just for money)
      div one footy next season
      the list goes on and on.
      oh and one of the best strikers outside the prem.
      anyway back to the reason this thread was started how was
      the LAP OF HONOUR OR WAS YOU ONE OF THE FANS
      WHO FVCKED OFF BEFORE THE END?

      The lap of honour was great. Sadly, it came a couple of
      days too late and all we had to celebrate was winning
      £100,000 and a funny looking wooden bowling ball for
      beating Swansea City in the FAW Premier Cup Final. Oh well......

      Away followings: again, there are so many factors to take
      into consideration when looking at a club's away following.
      For instance, distances to travel, dates and times of matches,
      ticket allocations / restrictions, current form of team, etc.

      Last season was an odd one for most travelling City fans.
      We had three or four games on Sundays with 12pm kick offs,
      a couple switched to midweeks from Saturdays, one Thursday
      night game (can't remember against who....), a couple of
      Friday night games, and various allocation restrictions due
      to the behaviour of our lunatic fringe.

      On average I usually attend around 10 to 15 away games
      each season and have done so for about 20 years. Last
      season I only went to 5. Often I just couldn't be bothered
      due to the hassle getting tickets and the presence of Mr
      Cork on the bench. Remember, we were mid-table for most
      of the season.

      Your lot, on the other hand, were always up at the top of
      the table. Couple that with the other factors (including the
      fact that many of your fans can't get tickets for home games)
      and it follows that you should have had a bigger away
      following.

      I wonder what will happen this season if you start getting
      stuffed every weekend? Will your 'better fans' still turn up
      in droves then? We'll see......

      You had two fine managers during the season who were
      able to use to the limited player-power at their disposal
      to get great results. Two highly-skilled tacticians who
      knew how to get the best out of their players.

      We had Alan Cork, a nice guy who simply wasn't strong
      enough to be a number one, and didn't possess the tactical
      know-how to get results from a squad which cost millions.
      He also had no idea how to motivate his men.

      Lenny Lawrence is a very different type of manager, as our
      amazing string of results at the end of last season proved.
      With him in charge we've got a real chance this year.

      Which is where I fear for you. You've lost two of the best
      young coaches in the game in the space of a few months,
      no doubt due to the financial restrictions The Champions
      have to live with. And you were seemingly unable to attract
      a new manager with any decent credentials for the job, so
      DK had to turn to his youth team coach instead.

      There may be trouble ahead
