Brighton & Hove Albion as safe as houses. Premier League status confirmed

Posted On 04 May 2019 at 7:39 pm

Albion will play Premier League football again next season as arch-rivals Crystal Palace beat Cardiff City in the Welsh capital.

Palace won 3-2, with Cardiff scoring in the last minute to reduce the arrears but it wasn’t enough to save them.

For once – if only between 5.30pm and 7.20pm – there were thousands of fans supporting Palace across in Brighton and Hove.

Albion can now take on Arsenal tomorrow without any worries about relegation.

Then on Sunday 12 May, with nothing to play for and for the first time in its history, the club could have a say in the Premier League title race.

The Seagulls host title-chasing Manchester City at the Amex on the final day of the Premier League season.

Thank you Palace – but as you were.

    Now that there is no pressure on us, it would be refreshing to see the team play counter-attacking, free-flowing football instead of the mostly terrible, turgid and negative stuff seen since the Palace game – if not, the midget Bloom must not hesitate to sack Hughton wthout further ado and give the job to Frank Lampard
