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 one line opinion (or quotes), apparently it was not just small talk.
POST MATCH - we thus built a database of records from turn of the century, when the web was a virtual phenomenon
and smart phones something for our future.

It is 25 years since surviving as a Football League club - go to our Archive index & also Withdean Era tab.
under Characters in Archive scroll to Dick Knight, Martin Perry and Gory Years (Goldstone) managers.

1997... to 2011. from Doncaster & Hereford, then homelessness... to Liverpool at the Amex.
Flashbacks... after the Goldstone Ground closure story broke.
Bill Archer promised the earth would move - to Waterhall?!? Soon after he sold the Goldstone in that headline grabbing midsummer murder of 1995.
Then it was go to Toads Hole Valley around Xmas, before he tried to chat up McAlpines in 1996 - who were already allied with Dick Knight's consortium in process of taking over control at BHA.
He resigned as Chairman, initially kept almost half of shares in our revamped club but also left us homeless from end of April 1997.
Well over a decade later...
Brighton were unbeaten at the Amex for a fantastic start to our inaugral year at Falmer in the Championship for 11/12. In a bizarre case of coincidence we initially hosted Doncaster at the brand new stad.
Not just content with heading the league table at end of August, we'd also already disposed of Gillingham and Sunderland for summer-nights knockout ties in the Community Stadium.
Gates of 16k & 17k for those brilliant opening rounds under floodlights was sure to be bettered once that incredible draw for League Cup R3 was announced.
On the night nearly 22k attended for Liverpool - an Amex sell-out.
Talk about living the dream, although fourteen years of waiting for a state of the art facility was more than enough nightmare for long suffering Albion supporters.

and Clubs and Falmer Years; for Doncaster, Hereford and many other now remote lower league outfits like Hartlepool & York. These also include Rochdale & Darlington; clubs we played at the Goldstone when completing promotion years of 1972 & 1965. Or who remembers Burton at the Amex in Feb 2017 - on the 20th anniversary of Fans United.
