When I lived in Burnley (and worked in Colne) work colleagues knew I was an Albion fan. In the canteen one day the Purchasing Manager asked me who Brighton were playing that weekend.Slightly odd comment on MotD last night. The commentator referred to us as “South coast neighbours”
Eh? Last time I looked it was roughly 100 miles between Brighton and Bournemouth. Hardly “neighbours”
"Oh, a south coast derby".
Google suggests it's a 215 mile drive from Brighton to Plymouth, which is about three-quarters of the distance from Brighton to Burnley!
