A Few Good Men: Brighton and Hove Albion Dream Team
Few English football clubs can boast such a varied history as Brighton & Hove Albion. From FA Cup Finalists in 1983 to being within half an hour of crashing out of the Football League altogether in 1997, their story is like a Hollywood screenplay.
Including the explosive sale of the Goldstone Ground for retail development before a replacement had been found, it’s been a memorable if frequently bumpy ride.
The story features a cast of top players including Peter Ward, Steve Foster, Mark Lawrenson, Gary Stevens, Brian Horton, Frank Worthington, Jimmy Case, Bobby Zamora, Danny Wilson, Michael Robinson, Dean Saunders and Joe Corrigan.
All are interviewed about their time at the club offering fascinating insights into the goings on at this famous old south coast club.
