Away at home. 29/04/17.

Bristol city have had a rollercoaster season. This was their last away game of the season and it was against Brighton, where I have lived for the last three years. I didn't go to many Albion games, but this was a special occasion. Brighton unlike city were on good form this season. They have been close to promotion to the Premier league for the last few seasons, but have undeservedly missed out in the Play-off's. This year the chance presented itself, not only for Brighton to go to the premier league, but to finish top of the Championship, and it was all to be decided on this day. Meanwhile city battled the relegation zone due to an unhealthy amount of games lost around Christmas time. To beat Brighton meant we were safe of relegation. All of this in the balance, along with the fact that it would be my last game at the amex as a local resident. I bought a ticket. I went on my own. I met up with a mate from home who had travelled up with others. The sun was out all day. In terms of the football, apparently it looked pretty flat on TV. The Brighton fans are quite boring. But we sung for 90' minutes. It was a pretty perfect day out if i'm completely honest. We got a goal just before the first half ended. The second half was full of shouting and excitement but not much more went on other than that. A couple of missed chances on our part but thats about it. When the game finished my friends dad had a flight to Kiev, and I wanted to get to the pub to see the boys because there was a cue outside the pub because Anthony Joshua was due to fight Wladimir Klitschko that evening. I couldn't wait to get to the pub. Brighton fans in dismay, City fans relived. When leaving the ground people were selling scarves saying 'Champions! We are going up!' for half price. promotion party over. Red army.
