I wanted to let Seagulls Chatters know that I've started a blog called The Goldstone Wrap at www.thegoldstonewrap.com.



The blog will feature Brighton & Hove Albion-related magazine cuttings, photos, football stickers and cards, excerpts from match programmes, leisure wear, fixture cards, and other bits and pieces from yesteryear. The articles will be succinct. I will let the images evoke your memories rather than write essays.

Please have a look.

If you are interested, please click the 'Follow' button to subscribe to updates of the site. I endeavour to have new, short entries on a daily basis. 

Also, if you have any Albion-related stuff, I would be grateful if you could post it on here. 

Thanks!

Also, if you do a blog relating to BHAFC, please let me know the link... and if anyone has advice on how to grow a blog so it is widely known and doesn't lose its momentum, that'd be welcome too!

SOme of that is very funny - Farah slacks - really? Haircuts and style were never good in the 80s!

Clever idea for a blog!  As a non-local, the focus on yesteryear will be quite interesting for me.  Best of luck with it!

And there was me thinking it couldn't possibly get any worse than Farah slacks...
