How the mighty are fallen

My local team, Brighton and Hove Albion – strugglers in the second tier of football here in the UK – met the former giants Leeds United today. Leeds were relegated from the top flight last year, after a nail-biting ever-so-near-escape. Surely tiddlers like Brighton couldn’t overcome the recently great Leeds?

Final score: Brighton & HA 1 – Leeds United 0

And it was an own goal, too. Ouch.
