From Shoot! Magazine in 1979/80.
By 1989, Brighton were no longer regulars in the weekly national magazines, so any coverage was like gold dust.
In Shoot! Magazine, he said:
“It’s all very relaxed down here and even when I was sent-off pre-season nothing much was said about it. Manager Barry Lloyd loves to play entertaining, attacking football so wherever we go and whatever the score, it’s tally-ho, forward we go.”
After being in his strike-partner’s shadow for a couple of seasons, Kevin Bremner certainly did turn the tables on Garry Nelson in 1989/90, getting twelve League goals compared to his striking counterpart’s five. Nelson was hampered by injury from February onwards, which opened the way to Sergei Gotsmanov’s arrival.
