Brighton & Hove Albion


745.6k fans
Ranked: 19th in Premier League

The "Seagulls" have been around since 1901, playing in the Southern League before being elected to the Football League in 1920. They played in the First Division from 1979 until the rollercoaster season that led them to the 1983 FA Cup Final, which they lost to Manchester United before being relegated.

In common with many clubs they Brighton have had their share of poor management and came very close to relegation to the Conference in both 1997 and 1998. Saved from liquidation by a management buyout they clawed their way back to the second tier of English football in 2002. In the 2016–17 season the club earned promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history, back on top after 34 years.

I was so proud to be a fan of this club on that day. It was carried out with compassion and dignity.

Indeed ... thanks for remembering them ...

We will remember them. I was in my seat at the Amex, when the news was announced. The game was delayed for awhile.

Such a sad day

A tragic day we will never forget.

I remember day I was working at the Amex


We were simply waiting for a football match yet tragedy was unfolding #together





Shows what a human, caring club BHAFC are. They care about everything and everyone- not just the football.

Indah Nya stadion 🤗

Remember all those who tragically died that day...will never forget😢😢

Great player gave all

A top man and great professional. Hope he thrives once again at Charlton!

Good luck

No longer up to the standard of the squad but was brought in at a time we desperately needed a proper striker to get us away from the bottom end of the Championship. Did that job with class and helped us to promotion. Players come and go, but legends are remembered. Cheers Tomer, go smash it up at Charlton. 🥳

Always sad to see a great player like him go

Graham Hodgson

Won't lie I'm gonna miss him should never have gone out on loan last season and we missed his goals


What a player!

Such an underrated player IMO

He was a good Championship striker and Graeme Souness wrecked his PL chances by talking up his foul, red card and suspension which he never recovered from.

It's going to be an amazing El Clasicoast guys this weekend!

Loved that kit 👌

Does someone know where can I find that jersey? I really want to know please i need it!

remember that day was awesome in that away end

Was that the year that Southampton finished second to us, but were 'the best team in the division' according to Pardew?

Bloody brilliant.

will Murray start against S'ton ?? what do you think guys ? or will it be Maupay ?!

Last seasons home game was dire !


What a goal by Crofts.

Laura Stringer show Jamie :-) “Llanana” “Lambert” “Liverpool”

That was a massive game

Sam Gibbons Good Memories.

Ben J Franklin Whing on Llanana 😂

Jason Harrison why you wearing Central Coast strips?

Benn Nicolas still my favourite away performance live


Jordan Kemp what game that was
