Brighton 3 – 1 Crystal Palace


Is it the A23 derby or the M23 derby? Knowing how roads work, it’s probably a bit of both at some point. A bit of a weird one, as Brighton and Croydon are about 40 miles away. Also, it (the rivalry) only really started in the 1970s. From then on it’s just been smoke bombs and general fighting. The match in question here; also strange. It’s almost like Shane Duffy getting himself sent off worked in the Seagull’s favour. From 2008 until 2015, Glenn Murray only played for Brighton OR Palace, so who knows what his thoughts on all of this are.
