WeAreBrighton.com - Moments in Time

A trip down memory lane as we look at various moments in the history of Brighton and Hove Albion from old-school kits to reliving past glories.

The Curse of Valentines Day
Following Brighton's 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town on Valentines Day, we look back at 30 years of Albion games on the most romantic day of the year in a feature that will probably have you considering sacking off your partner for the Albion next time.
Top 10 Brighton and Hove Albion EFL Trophy Moments
Brighton are back in the ELF Trophy for the first time in six years following the announcement that the Seagulls Under 23 side will take part. To celebrate, we look back at our top 10 Albion moments in this great and famous competition.
Brighton and Hove Albion Kit Cock Ups
With the announcement of the announcement that Brighton will be releasing a new kit in the next few days stoking anger that they couldn't just get on with it, we take a look back at some of the glorious kit cock ups that have littered the Albion's recent past.
Hyyp-replacement - who next for Brighton and Hove Albion?
After just six months in charge, Sami Hyypia has resigned as Brighton and Hove Albion manager with the club in a world of relegation trouble. We've put together the leading 25 candidates to take on the job and assess whether they are the right man (or woman) to save us from League One.
Curse of October
The last time Brighton and Hove Albion won a game in October was in 2010. Since then four years, 19 games, a US Presidential election and a Royal engagement, wedding and two babies have all passed. We take a look at the Seagull's remarkable run of form in the tenth month of the year.
End of an Errea Part Five - 2011-2014
Against all the odds, we have actually completed the run down of every single kit Errea produced during their 15 years supplying the Albion. The fifth and final part focuses on the last three season of Amex football and two of the finest away and goalkeepers kits of the lot. Not a bad way to finish.
End of an Errea Part Four - 2008-2011
End of an Errea part four takes a look at the final few kits of the Withdean era including the somewhat bizarre and questionable decision to have a home, away and third kit that were all blue. And not forgetting the glorious designs of that League One title season.
End of an Errea Part Three - 2005-2008
2005-2008 was a golden period for Brighton and Hove Albion kits with a raft of wonderful goalkeeper uniforms and three "special edition one offs" to fleece fans out of 40. They all feature in the third part of our End of an Errea series.
Oscar Gar-see-ya - who next for the Albion?
Oscar Garcia's resignation leaves the Albion looking for a new manager for the second consecutive summer after play off semi final heartbreak. We take a look at the positives and negatives of 25 of the leading candidates to become Brighton manager for 2014-15.
End of an Errea Part Two - 2002-2005
Part two of our look back through 15 years of Errea kits covers 2002-2005. One relegation, one play off final and two seasons in the Championship against all the odds set to a backdrop of a ridiculous number of goalkeeper kits. Including THAT pink one.
End of an Errea Part One - 1999-2002
With Errea set to end their 15 years as "technical partner" to Brighton and Hove Albion, the first of our five part series looking at every kit they made for the Seagulls looks back at 1999-2002. *Warning: This does include photos of Mark Walton.*
Inside the new Training Ground - October 2013
Another step towards having everything in place for Premier League football for the Albion is the new state-of-the-art training ground just outside Lancing. Set to open in time for the 2014-15 season, we joined Oscar Garcia, Martin Perry and Paul Barber for a look around.
The Gus Poyet Years
After just short of four years, Gus Poyet's reign as Brighton and Hove Albion manager has come to an inglorious end. Despite the way it's finished, it's been one of the most successful periods in Albion history. We take a look back at our time on board the Gus Bus.
Brighton's Best Beards
The beard is rarely seen on the football pitch in England in the 21st Century. With the passing of Tony Grealish, one of the finest bearded men to play for the Albion, we trawl through the archives and take a look back at the top ten beards seen in a Brighton shirt.
The Withdean Years Part Three - 2007-2011
The concluding part of our look back at the Withdean Years features Russell Slade's great escape heroics, plus the moment that could be seen in years to come as the catalyst for some of the most glorious times in the clubs history - the arrival of a certain Gus Poyet as manager.
The Withdean Years Part Two - 2003-2007
Part two of The Withdean Years takes a look back at 2003-2007. Despite featuring a successful play-off campaign and avoidance of relegation from the Championship, it will be remembered as the start of the barren years with 2005-06 being the catalyst for four years of forgettable football.
The Withdean Years Part One - 1999-2003
The first part of our look back at Brighton and Hove Albion' tenancy at Withdean Stadium focuses on 1999-2003 - the clubs most successful while playing at the athletics track with two divisional titles won and a memorable and ultimately unsuccessful battle against relegation from the second tier.
Special Edition Kits
With the news that the Albion will wear an all-white one-off shirt away at Dagenham due to a kit clash, we take a look back at the clubs record of six special edition jerseys in seven seasons as the Seagulls look to overhaul Manchester United as the kings of new kits.
Aston Villa - Big Game Preview
It's all people have been able to talk about for three weeks since the FA Cup Fourth Round draw was made. WeAreBrighton.com take a look at the biggest game of the decade for the Albion as they travel to Martin O'Neill's Champions League chasing Aston Villa.
