Brighton & Hove Albion play their third successive season in the top flight of English football, following the 2016/17 promotion from the Championship. Having survived the second-season syndrome by the skin of their teeth, the Seagulls face a season of upheaval in 2019/20.
The fans got unsettled by the news of Chris Hughton’s post-season sacking but the club owners were not particularly impressed with the way he led the team to the 17th-place finish last year. Graham Potter was brought in and given a gargantuan task of keeping Brighton afloat in the Premier League.
With competition getting stronger than ever, such an aim will be easier said than done. And to make things even worse, the Seagulls are given the betting odds of 2.86 to get relegated, which makes them the fourth biggest favourites for the drop.
Brighton Key Players
Lewis Dunk is a local hero. The towering centre-back is a bellowed homegrown star who even earned an England call-up thanks to his last season’s brave displays. The Englishman is a commanding presence in both boxes – doing his best to be as big an attacking threat from set-pieces as he is defending his goal.
In an attempt to boost their chances of survival, the Seagulls ended up being proactive during the summer transfer window – bringing in four new faces. Belgian winger Leandro Trossard is the most exciting name of the lot. The left winger is a versatile attacking force who can slot right into the middle right behind the striker. This very trait earned him 14 goals in 34 league matches for Genk last season. His crosses come with a cutting edge, whereas his overall passing ability is nothing short of impressive.
Usually referred to as the A23 derby or the M23 derby, matches between Brighton and Crystal Palace make for a feisty rivalry which burst onto the scene in the late 1970s. The unusual nicknames of this derby come from motorway roads connecting Sussex with south London.
Brighton and Crystal Palace had been the founding members of the Football League Third Division but their rivalry did not truly arise to prominence before both sides fast-tracked their way into the First Division during the 70s. Matches between these two rivals would bring plenty of on-pitch excitement. Similarly, it would often turn into incident-filled encounters. Last of them occurred in December 2018 when a melee ensued over penalty disputes. Shane Duffy even threw a head butt on Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt leaving Brighton to record a compelling 3-1 win with only ten players on the pitch.
The year 1901 marks the birth of Brighton & Hove Albion. It wasn’t until 1920, however, that Brighton became a member of the Football League. The Seagulls are not among the most successful clubs in the country and the FA Cup final in 1983 – and a loss to Manchester United – to this date stands as arguably the most notable result in history. During their time, Brighton have changed the total of five different stadiums. They first played their home matches at County Cricket Ground during their formative year. The Goldstone Ground was Brighton’s home for five years, before the club moved to Priestfield Stadium. Withdean Stadium was the place Brighton spent 12 years at, before moving to their current home – Falmer Stadium.
Historically speaking, the club’s main colours are blue and white, with a striped combination being the most frequent occurrence on their shirt. The nickname – Seagulls – is only natural, knowing that this bird is the focal point of the club’s crest.
