Review by Brighton & Hove Albion fan Vaughan Storm
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
Great stadium and because it is in London it is one of the closest Brighton away games to go to.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
We got the train then the Tube which was very easy. The train to Victoria is direct from my local station. We got off at Highbury and Islington.
If you got the train, how easy did you find it to make your way to the stadium from the station?
It was an easy 15 minute walk. You go down a long road before turning near Holloway Road Station which I believe is closed on a matchday.
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
The Famous Cock Tavern. It is right beside Highbury and Islington station and is quite busy but not really much of an atmosphere.
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
We had a Mexican at Victoria Station which was good value.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
Poor. The steps are really low in height so I had to be on my tiptoes for the majority of the game. The concourse was spacious and modern but having the corner of the ground is always poor.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Very poor from the home fans as they were very quiet even when they were ahead. Brighton away ends are always rocking!
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
3/10. The Police were getting involved all over the place and they weren’t nice at the final whistle. Not surprised because we stopped them from being in the Champions League!
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
Very easy, no queues. Wish we had metro services down south. It helps when the fans are spread out to 3 different stations.
How much did you spend in total on this away day? Was it good value for money?
£80, tickets were £40 for me and my dad (£30 adult, £10 Under 18) £20 for the London day pass, £4 for programme and the rest on food.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
