Congratulations to Brighton and Hove Albion on their promotion to the Premier league! What a fantastic season for the seagulls who will be playing the likes of Manchester United next season. Up the Albion!
There has been many ups and downs over the last three years where Brighton have been so close to gaining promotion so it makes it even more of a fantastic achievement. Chris Hughton’s side were flirting with the top six promotion places for the vast majority of the season finally pushing into the top two around Easter time. It was neck and neck for top spot with Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle United who also had the financial muscle to out perform most teams. Alas on the final day the Albion drew pretty much in the last kick of the game against Aston Villa which confirmed Albion to second place but nether less they were still promoted.
The city of Brighton has had a whole summer of anticipation waiting for the Premier leagues opening day fixture in mid August where Brighton will be kicking off their first game versus Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City which should be a treat for the neutral. Fingers crossed for more fire works from the Albion.
