Hometown hero Dunk says Premier League promotion is dream come true


Mired in the fourth tier of English professional football and close to liquidation, Brighton had to sell their ground to pay off some of their debts, spent two seasons 70 miles away in a ground-sharing arrangement and then moved to a locally owned, run-down athletics track on the edge of town whilst they sorted out their future.

The last time Brighton were in the top league of English football was back in 1983.

Brighton will play for the first time in the Premier League, which was launched in 1992.

Victory in any of the Seagulls' final three games will secure the title after failure in the play-offs in three of the last four campaigns. To this day, Bloom has invested around £300 million into the club, including £25 million in player recruitment, £90 million in subsidising operating losses and £160 million in the Amex and one of the most recognised training facilities in European football.

"I think the motivation was that they thoroughly enjoyed being at the top end of the table last season, all season".

Gaetan Bong, Liam Rosenior and Beram Kayal played no part in the 2-0 win at Wolves that put Brighton on the brink and all three are fit and ready to tackle Wigan, for whom Bong used to play. We've recruited very well, the team spirit is fantastic and he has done remarkably well in a very tough league.

Newly promoted Brighton are in good hands underone of the fe black managers in Englush football.

After failing to showcase his quality for Leicetser City the last time he was in the division, Knockaert will be keen to show everyone how good he is next season. After multiple protests and support from communities and the board, Brighton had an approval on a new stadium. I can only apologise to these fans that Tottenham Hotspur paid us £30m for Moussa Sissoko, that Liverpool paid us £25m for Gini Wijnaldum, and that Marseille are paying us £10m to take back Florian Thauvin.

"That's why I give every single bit of my life on the pitch and they deserve it because this club is something special and you can not see that in any club in the world".

Brighton possess surprisingly little Premier League experience, despite the average age of their players.

Hughton has experienced the thrill of promotion before with current title rivals Newcastle, but he rates this one as his finest achievement.

9% - Gianfranco Zola won just 9% of his Championship games in charge of Birmingham City (W2 D7 L13). "I'm so buzzing for them", he told the club's official website.
