Hughton hails Premier League new boys Brighton

Whether it was luck or good football, they are now in the Premier League - for the first time in their history - and we can finally look forward to our first proper rivalry match in the top flight.

Brighton's goal difference of 37 made that win practically enough to guarantee their return to the top flight after 34 years, but Jacob Butterfield's 88th-minute equaliser for Derby against the Terriers made it mathematically certain.

Despite the windfall that comes with playing in the Premier League, Bloom indicated that Brighton will make only modest investments this summer as they are happy with the core of the squad Chris Hughton has in place.

He said: "It had something to do with how the season ended last season, but I think it was more the fact that the players enjoyed being up that end of the table, competing, getting into the play-offs".

He added in The Argus: "We're not there for just one season, we intend to be there for a while". He said: "We have to strengthen, that goes without saying, but we're not looking to spend huge amounts". The aim was to put ourselves within an opportunity to get promotion, and we've managed to do that earlier than what we thought.

"To be fair, they should have walked the league, but we have the fight and will continue that fight until the end".

"I played a few games at the Withdean, but when we moved here I had my first full season".

I've seen a fair bit on social media that Brighton are "coming for us" which is lovely, considering we've been waiting for that for four years.

"We are very lucky we have a very wealthy owner who has set aside money to give us an edge", Barber said in February. We kept all our main players, we strengthened, helped all the players believe this was going to be our season, and so it has proved.

Bloom has spent around £250m during his eight years with the club, building the Amex Stadium and Brighton's sparkling training facility at Lancing, but has had to be patient before seeing his side reach the elite. "They are more competitive and cut-throat than (second-placed) Newcastle, and I think they (would be) worthy champions". The first stage of what he needed to do was get us to stay up [in the Championship].
