Three-nil, 9/9/17

Brighton and Hove Albion’s players celebrate the third goal in today’s 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion, their first win of the season and first in the top division of English football since 1983. And Joe and I were there to see it. Much fun was had by all.

Elland Road

Elland Road, 11/2/12

Twenty years I have lived in Yorkshire. And much as I like the place, and like Leeds as a city, I have SO developed a complex about the fact that my team (Brighton) have not won here since I arrived. Twenty years I have had to put up with last-minute equalisers and condescension from the local Leeds fans. Twenty years I have had to live in the midst of an arrogant fanbase who despite several recent seasons in the third tier still seem to be living on the fact that in the 1970s they may have won a title or two.

Well – NOT TODAY. Today we WON, 2-1 with a last-minute goal – which as this photo is taken, has just gone in. And yes, you could say I’m rather happy this evening.
