I see from my local paper that there is going to be an "Albion Day" in Worthing centre on 21 June. I know there are a number of Palace fans in the area so it would be great if we could show ourselves preferably in Palace tops so they are reminded of our presence and that they don't have 100% of support (as they seem to think) locally. :lux::lux:

If I ever go to Worthing I always see a fair few Palace shirts, have yet to see a Brighton one

Wearing my Palace shirt in Worthing is something I do quite often, usually get a few glares from Brighton fans going into Sports Direct to get their Chelsea or Man U shirts, but sure to get a reaction on this day.

I have seen a few but the Weeds are here in force, albeit mainly kids but a fair number of older Weeds with jackets and hats etc

Certainly a lot more since their promotion, I coached youth football locally between 2002 and 2009 and it was rare that kids wore Brighton shirts, the 'old timers' have always worn their colours to be fair.

We have big support in the Worthing area, even Penstone cannot argue with that one. :D

Were you pissed? It is unimaginably preferable to Croydon anyway

Great. So why do you write the same stereotypical, ignorant drivel that others seem to about such a large and varied place then?

You probably answered your own question as you accept that the opinion I have is widely held ..... why a reducing number of Palace fans actually live in the area maybe ?

It baffles me when Palace fans throw stones about other clubs' areas being horrible.

I have lost count of the times I have walked past an old mattress or washing machine on the way to Selhurst, just after coming out of the piss stained alley way on adjacent to the block of flats.

Hardly Monaco is it.

We have enough ammunition over Brighton, without going down a rout in which they can make a reasonable response.

Very true - those in glass houses should not throw stones me thinks

Those in a Crystal Palace should not throw stones, but should revel in the smugness that comes from being immeasurably better than your bitterest rivals.

If you mean the piss stained alleyway next to the former Co-Op on Station Road (where the Irish guy got killed), then Aldi have properly tarted that up as part of their store re-fit. Being more of a Waitrose ponce by inclination I was a bit suspicious of having an Aldi, but fair play that whole block looks a shitload better.

Soiled Matresses and dead washing machines I'll give you though, which pisses me off no end. Particularly at bottom of Whitworth Road.

Of course it's fashionable to knock Croydon, that doesn't make it right though, which is why I am pulling you up on it. I assume by 'Croydon' you really mean Selhurst, Thornton Heath, West Croydon etc? I would agree that people have moved out of these areas, as is the case throughout London.

However, I think a lot of Palace fans live in the south of the Borough, generally in areas which are fairly prosperous middle class leafy suburbia like anywhere else and I would suspect are more affluent and have higher house prices than a small, rather shabby town like Worthing.

Small and shabby!!! There are penthouse flats overlooking the sea here going for over. 1m mate I wouldn't call it shabby unless you don't appreciate well maintained Victorian and Edwardian villas in a lovely location. You don't get people moving from here to Croydon but the other way round. I know you are only trying to defend your own patch but you are deluding yourself if you think this place is small and shabby. Doh!

I was just making an honest "sober" general observation about the people I saw in the centre of Worthing (living in deepest Weedland for many years now) not making any comparisons with Croydon/Selhurst at all (knowing some very grim areas there well), many locals say the same about the town these days.

Annoying when people write utter bollocks about the place where you live based on a few lazy stereotypes isn't it?

**** me have I gone onto the location, location, location board by mistake.

We are heading for a second mid table prem finish in a row, brighton only finished 5th bottom because Rotherham had a points deduction. No Blackpool to take bottom spot next season, Brighton could have a tough time not getting relegated.

Yes I passed it yesterday and it looked very deserted (the training ground not your house ) even allowing for close season.

You moved there not too long ago, you knew full well that the Elite Training Centre was going to be built.
In my opinion your property would've increased in value. :D

Make sure your house insurance is watertight, you will be needing some new windows with CMS, COG and KLL training nearby.

The only reason I could afford it was because it became devalued :D I can still see the sea though so not all bad.
