Brighton enclave in Brussels, circa 2018!!

Percy couldnt get a work permit for the UK, but christ hes smashing Belgium apart!!! Great little South African centre forward, hopefully he gets a permit, and comes to England next.... Brighton first team wanted him, but the whole environment for foreign imports is difficult at the moment.

Anyone watching BT Sport.

They were filming the helicopter taking off from the middle of the Leicester pitch presumably with the owners in, the pundits were joking about 'how some people live...'

Come off an advert break 5 minutes later, and news that the helicopter has crashed into the car park outside the ground, no news of casualties yet.

Programme has been cancelled as having to evacuate ground due to a fire outside. They'd already cancelled an earlier programme due to Glenn Hoddle's illness.

Which also was, for sometime, a Brighton home home ground.... although we couldnt muster up much of a crowd there in those late 90s years. Pain in the arse journey that was, especially in mid week matches..........

USG is a lovely place to watch a game, tbf. Got Park Duden behind the ground, nice traditonal housing area around the ground, and a newly renovated stadium .... plus a small bunch of hardcore locals.

a real shocker, that. I knew nothing about it until this morning. Reuters are reporting that there were 5 people on board

Hoddle had a heart attack, seemingly, and I believe a Brighton fan dropped down dead during their game, as well

all in all, a difficult day for football
