They are no longer adequate for a club that wants to move forward.Manchester City wouldn't have Stockport as rivals.

Great thread!

I have always felt slight embarrassment having them as rivals and other sets of fans have questioned it however the last year or so has made me realise just how embarrasing it is. We need to come together and try to put this shambles rivalry to one side.

The delusion
The entitlement
The stadium/attendances talk
The fact most have two teams to support

I could go on but fact is they do make us look silly. Millwall, Charlton even bloody Crawley would be less embarrasing.

Time it ends NOW.

Stockport have better fans and would probably offer us more of challenge on the pitch and in the stands than the shower of ***** on the South coast.

Brighton are a joke. It's like having a man with a terminal illness as your arch enemy. Things will never get any better for him and if you ever meet you'll always feel bad for humiliating him in his own house because he's so weak. The world will frown at you for constantly bettering such weak and feeble opposition and thus there is nothing to be gained out of goading the ******.

We need to start taking applications for new rivals and let the bellends find a rival they can actually compete with vocally, like a netball team or maybe the local library 5 aside team.

They don't deserve our rivalry, but who would have them ?
A bit like Charlton, desparately needing a focus to direct their pain and anger.
I suggest we give them another season, with the option of a Christmas review.

As I just said on another thread, it's a pointless, non-competitive rivalry where one team is always better than the other and always comes out on top.

They don't have any identity, they don't have passionate fans. They can't win a game in the play offs. Anything they've got they've been bought not earned.

But they do have us and that helps to make them more valid as a club rather than just stuck on the coast on their own.

I really wish we could **** them off. We don't need them.

We do need them though.

Cos it's low points like this that you look at these c*nts and Millwall and then all your troubles and miseries go away.
Despite the result yesterday, we're Palace and they never will be.

No sign of them understanding football yet.Apparently a team that loses around 10-20 million a year and fails once again to make Wembley has the bragging rights against a club making a large sum of money,in the top division and one that narrowly loses in the biggest cup final in domestic football.
Let's ditch these idiots for good.

TBH how many Palace fans even genuinely dislike them? Its pantomime stuff.

Compare it to when we play Man Utd, where there is a genuine festering hatred in the air.

Loads do. Especially if you were around for the days of Mullery managing them, and then when the wanker came here. There was a real on pitch rivalry too. Obviously for decades, they have served up nothing but hilarity for us, but plenty hate them.

But yes, they are a complete embarrassment, supported by imbeciles that don't get football.

Does anyone have a copy of Eagle Eye's brilliant 'Notice of Termination of Rivalry', served on Brighton in the 1990's? I wish I had kept my copy - it was one of the most memorable things to appear in that long lost and lamented fanzine.

Unfortunately I haven't but I remember somebody printed a few hundred copies of the notice that we handed out at the Goldstone before the ZDS win in 1991.Didnt go down too well.
Hopefully somebody has a copy and would be good enough to scan it on to here.:p

Because I don't remember the Mullery era that kicked it all off, I've never quite bought into the rivalry. Doesn't mean I haven't thoroughly enjoyed many recent humiliations of The Weed but for me rivals means local teams in South London. South coast doesn't count.

One poxy spell in the top flight in your entire history. You bang on about your crowds, but no Brighton fan in living memory can offer a credible explanation as to how you suddenly got so many fans overnight, and how they all appeared in 2011, when you got your new ground. Yes, you have better facilities, all paid for by one man only as you well know. Do one.

Corrupt refs and unfair Play Offs, and that damn ridiculous Goal Difference rule. It's just not fair.

There will be a new bonus merit points regime in place for the weed next season:

15 points brought forward (unused from last year).
10 points for the Premiership-ready ground.
10 points for their massive attendances.

That's 35 points - already a fair way to the 90 points they will need - seeing how 89 wasn't enough last year :D.

Whilst never hitting the glorious heights of CEO OF THE YEAR, Phil Alexander was once voted onto the Board of Directors for the Football League in 2012. A position from which I would presume a CEO would have the power to implement certain policies that might assist the fortunes of one's club.

Whilst Paul Barber is no doubt as ecstatic with his new title of CEO OF THE YEAR as the rapturous fans of BHAFC, if he'd instead followed in the footsteps of our Phil, perhaps the archaic system of deciding promotion could finally be changed from the ridiculous notion of beating opponents on a football field.

Sadly, Phil was forced to resign from the board when Crystal Palace cruelly achieved promotion to the PL.

From what I recall, he believes it can all be under one roof, provided 'everyone posts responsibly', followed by some guff about rich exchanges of views and perspectives and such.

All of which simply means of course, away fans are welcome on there so long as they join in on the PLR circle jerk and tell the NSC how much they enjoyed their concourse and so on.

I think it's a particularly tough Championship this season, and it's going to take a lot of getting out of in the right direction.

But it's only tonight, watching my first MotD of the season, that it's dawned on me how weak the Premier League is this campaign, with all of the following relegation candidates:

- Hull (seemingly this year's basketcase club)
- Watford (over-achieved previously)
- Bournemouth (small club, second season syndrome)
- Crystal Palace (small club, shit manager)
- Middlesbrough (just promoted, struggling. Even lost to Palace)
- Burnley (one man side, and he's a banned homophobe)
- Sunderland (could be their turn after numerous miraculous escapes)

Beyond this lot, these perennial Premier League mid-table clubs could be set for struggles this season:

- West Brom
- West Ham
- Stoke

Even Swansea and Southampton could struggle after previously decent seasons.

Or am I just mis-reading it all?

Just responding, you lot like to dish it but cannot take it back.

As old git intimated, trips to the Stadium of Light and St James Park are somewhat commonplace for a club of our stature, steeped as we are in top flight pedigree. Hell, we even pinch Newcastle's best players and sell them our cast offs.

Contrast that with the starry eyed Tarquins. Marvel at their barely contained wankfest over their own over costly, yet still surprisingly modestly scaled and generic Amex shit bowl. Hell, no wonder they shit their pants with excitement at the prospect of visiting a club that they believe conforms with their own idiotically deluded self perception of status within the football heirarchy.

No. Far more telling to remind ourselves of who turns out at the Amex on those sub 16000 Championship Tuesdays, or makes the grim pilgrimages to those unfashionable northern tin pot clubs.

All, as you proudly say, paid for on Tony's ticket. BHAFC - the petulant, self entitled teenage bastard son of an indulgent parent, looking down its nose at its peers, incapable of ever doing an honest days work in its life.

You obviously haven't read 'build a bonfire'. It was written by a Brighton fan so is completely impartial.

I went to both, but by anyone's standards 2 long trips to the North east in a few weeks is expensive and time consuming. Brighton fans take a few to Newcastle for their first league trip there in years and once again think it makes them a big club. How they fail to realise nobody takes them seriously always amuses me
