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.

💬 Liam Rosenior reflects on his first season with the club...

"When you look at highlights of course you look at getting promoted to the Premier League, but for me the first season I had at the club in the 2015/16 season was incredible,” he continued.

“The way it finished was obviously tough to take but it really gave us a platform to kick on and grow. Players in that dressing room from the season before started to see a way we could get to the Premier League and started to believe that it was possible.

“That changed the ethos and it’s something I’m really proud of."

Great...guy...future Brighton manager..

Has made a massive impact on club and we so lucky to have him. I know he will become a top manager and one day hopefully a Brighton manager he is a very clever guy and a true leader

A very special talent, on and off the pitch, and I would expect him to hold down a very top management role in big league footie within the next 10 years....

Someone I’m very proud to still have connected to our football club. What a guy 👏👏👏

Good recruit for club

Great guy.

How about Percy Tau?

Top bloke

Possibly the most intelligent and articulate player to ever play for our club.

Top bloke

Bloke is an absolute legend.

💬 Anders Dreyer reflects on his time in Scotland last term... 🇩🇰

"You learn just as much about yourself away from football when you move on loan to a club at my age,” he continued.

"But I also learnt a lot when I moved from Denmark to Brighton, and in that respect, I think this year has been very good for me and my development as a player and a person.

"I have seen two new cultures with football and I’m still a young guy. Hopefully I can use those in the next couple of years to my advantage."

🎶 "There's only 1 Glenn Murray" 🎶 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙 and that's the problem! Our Glenn has reliability but is not able to keep starting each match. We need another reliable target hitter that can also start regularly. A descent target man and some attack minded midfielders with pace to feed him.

Also the best penalty taker we've had for years. Not that we got given many last season.

Good luck Come next season

Hope he can get a goal in our opening away game next season too.

He’ll need some help next year 🤔stating the obvious 😀

What a fantastic guy he is.

A truly lovely guy ⚽️⚽️

Has to be the chin up gesture. A very humble man.

Such a lovely man

Lovely guy brilliant on sky sports

Absolutely love how positive he is with the media. He has a lot of knowledge and is an asset to the club. A manager of the future.

Sheffield Wednesday away, play-off first leg disaster. Marched over to us in the Gods and gave us the Chin Up salute. What a man!

Top bloke, top ambassador and a great TV pundit to boot! ☺️

Just glad he was given the chance to carry on playing after leaving Hull City.

Definitely that chin up gesture, always very positive and enthusiastic about the team and club when on pundit duty

Lost in the back room, along with the goals and game winning

Liam we live u we do.

Sheff Wed away, chin up its not over yet. Gave me belief on the way back from Hillsborough that night.

Being injured 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Sorry men love u lol.

Top Bloke

mines when they signed some guy called zamora

This post change my life

He is on Sky more than with the Albion.

💬 A word with the new man...

👊 “Everything is set up for the club to keep progressing and that’s one of the main things which attracted me here.

"The training ground and stadium are set up to achieve good things and the Premier League is where every footballer wants to be.

“This club has been in this league for the past two seasons now.

"The latter half of last season wasn’t the easiest, but they got the job done and are in the division again for next year which is the most important thing.”

Good luck Matt.. All the best for the new season

Good luck Matt, Brighton have got a fantastic player 💙

Good luck Matt

Good luck matt

good signing

Patrick Wells finally playing for a decent team 👀

Good luck at Brighton I will look out there results now and thanks for what you did at Pompey

train them how to score goals

I like this guy already I've got a good feeling about him. The 2 D's need competition for places and it's about building a team. I'm waiting to hear who's departing and arriving as he's not going to be the only arrival. I reckon we'll be finding out in next couple weeks can't wait

A player who could really shine at this level, look forward to seeing him in action.

Skills and leadership, great signing! Keep 'em coming

You’ve got yourselves one hell of a signing there. We had him in the academy at Ipswich and we’re furious when he was allowed to leave as we knew even then that he’d eventually make it to the Premier League. Good luck to him.

No what attracted you there was playing in the premier league and the money dnt lie . U would of gone to any premier league club Good luck though

We need Percy Tau

Johnny Rush

Need a goal scorer

What a player 😢💙

Please we want Percy Tau next season

Percy tau

Best way 4ward is to have a big clear out , and learn how to play football . Can’t win a game playing 3/4 of the pitch then going backwards. Never have big named plays here as wages are far to high . Club would go bust

Andy Webb always raving about this boy

Lol joke club now , keep bringing in half bot players
