old combats and newer contests

Below is a list of clubs Brighton play for the PREMIER LEAGUE season (P), in our ninth year at FALMER.
Overall there is a very competitive and classy bunch on offer. Due to the yoyo nature of annual up/down scenarios, some previous opponents are also in our division. Teams with Premiership credentials will surely test us, as they aim to reach the Champions League. By anyones standards it will be one hell of a scrap (yeah, we say that every time!) - onward and upward!!

Our next fixture is always highlighted.

PAST REPORTS; OUR MISSION
PRE-MATCH - was to let Brighton fans and other web browsers know a few things about opposition for the given fixture, by way of facts & figs (stats) and opinion (quotes).
As each season progressed, teams were often measured by simple verbal reactions emitted from their manager - apparently it was not just small talk.
POST MATCH - we had thus built a database of records from turn of the century, when the web was a phenomenon and smart phones something in our future.
