Brighton & Hove Albion On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from the club's rollercoaster past, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable Seagulls diary - with an entry for every day of the year. From the club's formation in Ship Street in 1901 through to the Falmer era, the blue-and-white faithful have witnessed ups and downs, colourful chairmen, triumphant titles and raw relegations, plus the 14-year battle to secure a new home - all are featured here. Timeless greats such as Jimmy Case, Charlie Oatway, Peter Ward, Bobby Zamora and Gordon Smith all loom larger than life. Revisit September 5th 1910, when Albion beat Aston Villa to be crowned 'Champions of All England'. October 31st 1973: when Brian Clough signed a five-year contract! Or May 3rd 1997: Hereford away, and homeless Albion just 29 minutes from non-League oblivion.
