Kevin Bremner – The Seagull Has Landed

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.

Spotlight on Brighton

1985-86 spotlight

Full of optimism here. However, a wretched run of one win in the last ten Division Two games puts paid to the promotion push in 1985/86 and cost Chris Cattlin his job.

Note how much Dennis Mortimer resembles Gordon Greer!

Fred Binney – in Focus

Fred Binney

Shoot! magazine’s famous ‘Focus’ feature sets its sights on goal-poacher Fred Binney. Nothing quite dates this article more than that groovy font for Fred’s name.

Biggest disappointment? ‘The performances of Brighton during 1974/75 and 1975/76.’ Interesting!
