It took us twenty five years to do it, but by George if Brighton haven't hit the big time again.

Maybe one day, we'll match the half a million we paid for Andy Ritchie.

There's a free ticket available to watch big-money Murray make his Withdean debut tomorrow afternoon against Crewe.

PM please if you want it.

We've just signed Elder from you chaps for the equally staggering (for us) fee of 35,000. Any words on how he may fare in a standard of awful League 2 teams?

[Edit] And I doubt the Bees will come remotely near the 850,000 we paid for Hreidarsson in 1998.

Pretty hard to say, given he barely started a match for the Albion, and none that I ever saw.

We sold Hammond for 250,000 this week too, so we've almost made back that record outlay.

A 0-0 draw today at Forest means the clash with Leeds this weekend takes on even greater significance in the enthralling League One playoffs hunt.

I'm considering flying home for the playoffs if we make it, though somehow I feel that would guarantee failure, and even thinking about it is probably dangerous.

I've seen Glen Murray play a couple of times and he looks like a very good signing.

Slightly off-topic, but I'll ask it here anyway - is there some sort of history between Brighton & Swindon? I can't think if anything off the top of my head, but there was a massive police presence around the railway station on Saturday morning.

Twohundredpercent, there was a bit of trouble after the Brighton v Swindon play-off match in 2004, and some bitterness remains about the pitch invasion at the end of that match. I, for example, would even prefer Leeds to get promoted than Brighton. Leeds!

However, I think the police presence was probably due to the fact that an away game in a seaside town on a holiday weekend (no matter how cold) brings out the pondlife element of our support. I've been to the Withdean a couple of times before and didn't fancy the 22.50 entrance fee this time, but a couple of friends who went confirmed that there was a section of scumbags in the Swindon end (open goal for Boris) bragging about their banning orders and chanting about the BNP.

Swindon, by the way, are going to get relegated if they don't stop losing football matches.

Dear me. How very silly. We assumed that they were playing Millwall, such was the amount of Burberry and Stone Island on display at The Railway Tavern, but there didn't seem to be any trouble.

I'm going to hoof the ball upfield instead, BDG. We've all got scumbag elements, and Oxford's are as bad as Swindon's - it takes two to rumble.

Do you really think Swindon might go down? That would be nice.

Well, we are playing like dogs and have a tough run-in. I honestly can't see where our next points are coming from. Our last two matches are away to Gillingham and home to Millwall, which could well decide whether we'll still be two divisions above Oxford or just the one.

The knives are out for Maurice Malpas already.
