Paul Hazlewood
The matchday magazine for Albion v Watfor

In Saturday’s 100-page festive issue of the matchday magazine, Pascal Gross and Markus Suttner tell us how they celebrate Christmas back home in Germany and Austria respectively, and look forward to putting on their boots at this time of year for the very first time.
Cover star Bruno has a festive message for Albion supporters and looks back at a memorable year, while we go behind the scenes, as the players make their annual Christmas visits to hospitals in both Brighton and Worthing.
We take a light-hearted look at festive Albion programmes of the past, including the time Craig Noone donned a Santa onesie for the front cover, while we have news from the festive Truce Tournament in Belgium, where an Albion academy side beat Paris Saint-Germain and finished their group ahead of Manchester United!
With Watford the opposition, we speak to Gifton Noel-Williams, the ex-Hornets striker and Albion loanee, whose career was almost ended before it had begun due a crippling medical condition. We also catch up with Royal Blood drummer Ben Thatcher, who reveals his highlights of 2017: both professionally and watching the Seagulls.
Our retro section, which this season features a chronological look back at our first top-flight campaign at the Goldstone in 1979/80, takes a look back at, arguably, our best performance of the season, through the eyes of Ray Clarke and Alan Mullery.
We also speak to Richard ‘Chippy’ Carpenter, who provides an insight into what’s needed to stay up against all the odds.

For younger fans, our fab pull-out section is once again jam-packed with news, interviews, quizzes and stats. Then flip it over to reveal a huge poster featuring an Albion first-team favourite – perfect for your bedroom wall!

With Glenn Murray and Matthew Ryan featured plus much, much more, make sure you pick up Saturday’s jam-packed 100-page matchday magazine, plus pull-out, available in and around the Amex Stadium, priced £3.50.
