Features on Brighton and Hove Albion players past and present
The Amex Loan Strikers
Chuba Akpom's arrival made him the 10th loan striker to sign for the Albion in the six seasons since the Amex opened, making it seem like we are on a quest to sign every striker to have played professional football in England. We look back at the good, the bad and the Obika.
Albion Twitter League Table - November 2016
11 months after we last bothered to produce it, the Albion Twitter League Table is back. A host of new faces have entered the chart including three new entrants to the top five and a new leader. So who is the most popular Brighton player on Twitter?
Albion Twitter League Table - December 2015
Solly March and Dale Stephens' impressive performances have seen them climbing the Twitter League Table while there was one new entrant for December who came straight into bottom spot in the pile. But can anybody get close to league leader Beram Kayal and his 60,000+ followers?
Albion Twitter League Table - October 2015
The huge reshaping of the squad over the summer saw the Albion lose some of its most prominent tweeters. We decided it was high time to update the Twitter League Table with six new arrivals to The Amex completing the top 18.
Never go back - Which players should the Albion re-sign?
Brighton and Hove Albion seemed to have been linked to re-signing every player who has worn the stripes in the last 10 years this summer. So we've put together a list of the top 20 that we feel could make a real difference to the Albion on their returns for 2015/16. Free of charge to you, Mr Hughton.
Albion Twitter League Table - April 2015
Beram Kayal remains atop of the Albion's Twitter League Table with only one new entrant  - that of loan signing from Middlesbrough Mustapha Carayol. There's been little movement elsewhere, despite the best efforts of the #BlameStockdale campaign.
Albion Twitter League Table - January 2015
Nathan Jones' spell in caretaker charge not only enhanced his reputation among Albion fans and the footballin public, but it also got him a big surge in Twitter followers. And with loan players departing all over the shop, there is also a new number one at the top of the pile.
Albion Twitter League Table - November 2014
He may have managed just one game in his loan spell, but Ali Al-Habsi's contribution to #bhafc on Twitter cannot be overstated. With seven times the amount of followers of any other Albion player, he has grown the brand massively on social media as our latest league table shows.
Albion Twitter League Table - October 2014
The summer may have done bugger all to improve the Albion squad on the pitch, but it's been brilliant for the social media side of things with the top four in the Twitter Table all having arrived in the transfer window including the clubs most popular Tweeter EVER!
Albion Twitter League Table - February 2014
The Twitter League table was decimated during the January transfer window with no less than three of the top seven departing the club. Only one new signing puts his name into the mix with Dale Stephens entering in the middle and four development squad players to pad things out a bit.
Albion Twitter League Table - December 2013
David Lopez and Craig Mackail-Smith have long been the established top two when it comes to the Albion Twitter League. Until now that is as one man, recently arrived on loan, has well and truly inserted himself into the battle for the top places.
Albion Twitter League Table - August 2013
With a summer of drama seeing new management and new signings, we decided it was about time to update the Brighton and Hove Albion Twitter League table. And there is one man absolutely romping away with the most followers - double his nearest rival and 18,000 more than The Amex holds.
Gus Poyet - The Striker Files
For a man who is constantly bemoaning his lack of new striker and budget, Gus Poyet has done pretty well to spend over 3m on ten centre forwards since arriving at the club just under three years ago. We take a look at the full list of Poyet's striker signings and how they have got on in the stripes.
The 30 Withdean Goalkeepers
Tomasz Kusczcak's signing makes it five goalkeepers in two seasons at The Amex. This is nothing compared to the 30 who were named in match day squads during our 12 seasons at Withdean however. Here's the definitive guide to every one of them - the good, the bad and the Petterson.
Songs for the Squad
Despite being top of the table, a number of this summers new arrivals are still yet to have their own songs. After our shambolic efforts in creating something for Gus Poyet, we've come out with some more cringe worthy pop conversions for some of the Albion's new recruits.
Song for Gus
He's been in the job for just over three months now and despite masterminding a turn around of sorts, especially away from home, Gus Poyet is still without his own terrace anthem. WeAreBrighton.com attempt to rectify this gross injustice.
