Brighton away photo gallery

So our final day of the season was by the seaside in the sun, except the Amex stadium is not actually in Brighton or by the sea.

The stadium is next to the University campus in the middle of nowhere next door to Lewes.

It has the closest train station to any Premier League ground I can think of, it also has amble official parking at £15.

My son and I were two of the lucky three thousand away supporters there to witness Mark Noble’s 550th and last appearance in a West Ham shirt.

OK so it was not the result we wanted but after 55 plus games, it was a step too far to match our sixth place of last season.

We left the Amex stadium proud of the Europa League semi-final and seventh place we achieved this season and we are back in UEFA European competition next season. A good day out had by all!

  1. Just heard Aston Villa have signed one of the hottest young midfield players in Europe on a FREE from Marseille. Boubacar Kamara was supposed to be one of our top targets this summer. I can understand loosing out to a European Champions League team, but to a team finishing 14th in the League. It begs the question “What on Earth is our Head Scout and Head of Recruitment Rob Newman is doing?”
    This is exactly the type of player Moyes highlighted we should be after. Yet we have been beaten to him by a lower team. I’m absolutely GUTTED. The season has only just finished and yet Villa have moved and signed such a highly prized talent. On a FREE.
    Also Liverpool have just signed another HOT young prospect, again who we were supposed to be after on a FREE. Fulham’s 19 year old Fabio Carvalho. Liverpool and Villa have got their act together and in just one day after a season ends signed some of the top talent in the world. We are nowhere to be seen.
    What on earth is Rob Newman doing?

  2. Good photos Sean. Hope you enjoyed your day.

  3. Hugh, what on earth is going on?
    Not only have we lost out to Villa for 22 year old Boubacar Kamara but another top young player we have been after 19 year old Fabio Carvalho has just signed on a FREE for Liverpool. The season has only finished a day ago, and both teams have signed two of the hottest young talent in the world.
    I thought this was exactly the job Rob Newman was suppsed to be doing?
    Not chasing players on the last day of transfer windows at vastly overpriced, desperate bids.
    Villa and Liverpool are far more professional.
    It’s a disgrace.
    Please somebody ask the question “What is Rob Newman, doing?”
