Earlier this month, Albion published their annual accounts for the 2022-23 Premier League campaign. If you’re a Seagulls fan and you’ve not been living under a rock, the chances are you’ll already be aware of the club’s record-high post-tax profits. But just how do they compare with other clubs in the upper reaches of the Premier League? Below, we’ll compare Brighton’s latest accounts with similar clubs, based on total revenue, before breaking down matchday, commercial and broadcast revenues. We’ll also explore Brighton’s wage structure and where it sits in the Premier League hierarchy and whe ..read more

The long game: How 2023-24 will benefit Brighton in future seasons

Roberto De Zerbi interviews in recent months have come with all the cheer and joy of an EastEnders Christmas Day special. Which is why his comments after Brighton were well beaten 3-0 by Arsenal at the Amex were so welcome. There was no referring back to the January transfer window. No comparing his own ambition to that of Tony Bloom. No publicly announcing that contract talks with the club had ground to a halt. Instead, De Zerbi sounded almost upbeat in the aftermath of the heaviest home defeat of the season so far. Rather than wallowing in what was or wasn’t done in terms of new signings, th ..read more

“We’re playing walking football”: Do Brighton need to speed up?

Arsenal came to Brighton with all guns blazing as they looked to keep their title charge alive. Even when the visitors took the lead and in such good form, I still felt the Albion could turn things around and secure victory. Brighton’s resilience was evident, but my optimism was shattered when Kai Havertz doubled the lead in the 62nd minute. There was no coming back from that. Football is indeed an unpredictable game. It was great to catch up with an old workmate who supports Arsenal before the match. I seem to be surrounded by Gooners, with my wife and her side of the family all ardent fans t ..read more

Record-breaking profits – but what else did we learn from Brighton 2022-23 accounts?

The headline number from Brighton & Hove Albion’s 2022-23 accounts was one hundred and twenty two point eight million pounds (£122.8m) profit, setting a new record after-tax for an English football club. It represents an impressive turnaround after the Albion lost £28 million over the course of their first four seasons in the Premier League and is driven solely by player sales (thanks Chelsea). The Brighton Model of finding young players with raw potential from across the globe, polishing them into diamonds wanted by the biggest clubs in the world (and Chelsea) and then selling them on for ..read more

It had been a very proud 24 hours leading into the Brentford game for Brighton & Hove Albion. The club’s accounts for the 2022-23 revealed record profits for a Premier League club of £122.8 million. This figure did not include the sale of Robert Sanchez or Moises Caicedo, which would add I believe around £130 million more to the profit column. Mr Tony Bloom celebrated by joining Albion supporters in the away end, as he always does when Brighton play at Brentford. CEO Mr Paul Barber OBE was left to do a series of interviews on both the highly expensive TNT Channel showing the Albion against ..read more

The play-offs to determine the final countries involved in this summer’s showpiece have been confirmed. Jakub Moder now has the chance to be part of the competition after a nail-biting win on penalties against Wales sent Poland into Group D alongside Austria, Netherlands, and France. Poland will be underdogs in their group, but we have come to expect the unexpected in major tournaments. However, he will not be the only Seagull on international duty in Germany this summer. There is the potential for a few of his club colleagues to be involved, but who has the potential to go furthest in the com ..read more

With the significant improvement shown by Brighton and Hove Albion during Graham Potter’s time in charge at the Amex Stadium, some in the Seagulls fan base were rightly concerned about what would happen when he was poached by the bright lights of Chelsea. Well, whilst it went a little bit pair shaped for our former gaffer at Stamford Bridge, we kicked on even further following the appointment of 44 year old former Italian attacking midfielder Roberto De Zerbi, and our own real concerns right now are that he too may be soon poached and a trusted online source for the top bookies would certainly ..read more

The current season for Brighton has been significantly hindered by a series of injuries, resulting in a lot of questions and discussions by the team fans and analysts.

This blog piece will delve into the injury-prone season for Team Brighton, trying to ascertain whether the players are being subjected to more wear and tear given the level of physicality exerted or if it’s nothing more than poor luck. We will explore training re ..read more

Like a number of Brighton fans who grew up before the days of modern forms of social media and smart phones, I love reading local newspapers and looking up what others are saying on the unofficial fans forum North Stand Chat to see what the word on the street is about all things Brighton and Hove Albion. There is something rather comforting about the simplicity and unrefined nature of an internet forum. A form of social media that dates back to the days of dial up broadband and personal computers sat in the corner of the living room connected to a processor the size of an arm-rest. It is a med ..read more

Magic man Moder off to Euros but its deja vu for Dunk

The final round of international matches before squads are named for Euro 2024 have now been completed with mixed results for the Brighton contingent hoping to be in Germany this summer. Where else can we start other than Lewis Dunk, who discovered first-hand just how ruthless playing for your country can be. Cast your mind back to September and Dunk gave a masterclass for England against Scotland in only his second Three Lions appearance. The general consensus was that Gareth Southgate would have to be clinically insane to partner any centre back other than Dunk with John Stones at the Europe ..read more
