Har selv begynt å følge Brighton tettere den siste tiden. Først og fremst var det Gustavo Poyet som manager som trakk meg mot klubben, med Tarrico som assistent manager. Er i utgangspunktet Tottenhamfan, og begge disse har fortid der. Samtidig har de Torbjørn Adgestein på laget, som er fra samme region som meg.
Aldri vært i Brighton, men virker som et flott sted. The Seagulls synes jeg også er et flott kallenavn. Flere årsaker altså til at jeg har begynt å følge denne klubben tettere. Er i hvertfall sikker at jeg skal på kamp å sjekke ut den nye stadionen i fremtiden! Håper virkelig på opprykk i år, etter den fantastiske starten. Vicente er jo en utrolig sterk signering, forutsat at han er i fysisk form. Ankergren, Mackail-Smith, Noone osv, mange bra spillere der.
Må legge til en ting angående historien over (at Vicente ble signert på flyplassen). Dette ble postet på nortstandchat.com (Brighton sitt forum) før det ble "kjent" at han signerte på flyplassen:
"right, just got back from work. this is my 2nd Nsc post. My 1st was on here earlier about the best day at work ever! I've been a fan since I can remember, my Dad used to take me to the Goldstone as a kid, done the Withdean, loving Amex life etc etc. So for this to happen to an Albion fan is amazing.I work at Lgw (gatwick airport).The time was around 1.30pm. I was securing the sky when I spot a non football supervisor running towards me. He says " you know football don`t you?" "yep " I reply, how can I help? he tells me he`s got a contract handed to him outside central search by some football club and he`s got to run it to the gate to get it signed before the player gets on the plane. "who is it I ask?" "eeeerrrrr?? someone called Vincente" says this non football supervisor. At this point I don't quite remember what I said? something like go go go go fekin go!!! I find myself sprinting off with the supervisor up and over the link bridge towards gate 102 to the easyjet Valencia flight. As we get to the bottom of the link bridge escalator my supervisor says "do you know what he looks like?" "damn right I do!!" and I see his agent to pacing up and down on his mobile with the legend Vicente sitting waiting for his contract to arrive at the gate. I introduced myself in the little Spanish I know( just enough to tell him what we had and what was going on) I then had to explain he had to sign on each line marked with an X. As I'm watching this immense player signing the contract for the Albion, the agent says to me " where is the payment section?" I point it out for him (sadly, I didn't see how much he will earn) "thanks" says the agent "no probs" I say. then I ask for a picture with the legend Vicente, he poses with me, and off and away we sprint to handover the signed contract back to the suits outside central search. What an incredible day! Without doubt one of the greatest moments of my life!! that's how it went down at lgw today. picture to follow."
