By and large, Brighton & Hove Albion have been playing in blue and white stripes for well over 100 years some 113 years to be exact.

In that time, only once did theSeagulls venture to extend their famous two-tone livery south of the waistband, and now we know why.

During the giddy halcyon days of the early 1990s, Brighton bashed out a home strip that coupled a stripy shirt with matchingstripy shorts.

By the latter part of February 1981, it was becoming increasingly apparent that Liverpool were not going to be finishing the season as the champions of England this time around. Too many drawn matches were costing Bob Paisley's team, and by the time they travelled to the south coast to play struggling Brighton & Hove Albion they were five points behind second placed Aston Villa, with the number of matches left to try and bridge that gap starting to evaporate.

There's history here, you know. When Liverpool were the kings of English and European football, Brighton & Hove Albion had a curious habit of being able to dump them out of the FA Cup. They did it at Anfield on the way to Wembley in 1983, and then again at The Goldstone Ground the following year. Times have changed since then, of course.

There is, perhaps, little surprising in the fact that the most confusing tie of the Third Round of the FA Cup should involve Wrexham. The Blue Square Premier club the last non-league club still involved in this year's competition have had possibly the most convoluted twelve months of any side in the entire English league system, and this extended into the arrangements for this match against Brighton & Hove Albion, following their 1-1 draw at The American Express Community Stadium a week and a half ago.

OK Football Finder at related • 0 views

Forget Arteta, Crouch, Barton or Bellamy. Surely the transfer of all transfers this summer was Brighton's signing of Valencia legend Vicente Rodriguez on a free transfer last week!

Gus Poyet is exactly right to call this signing a "major coup" for the club which already sit top, and needless to say undefeated, after six games in their first season in the Championship since 2006.

For most with an interest in the story, the small matter of Brighton & Hove Albion vs Gus Poyet has now become little more than a matter of "Who do you believe?" That Poyet will be leaving the club has hardly even been so much as an open secret since the end of last season, and as time has worn on the sense of stasis in terms of whatever has been going on between the manager and the club has only added to the belief that the relationship between the directors of the club and its manager have long since become severed beyond the point of repair.
