There was more than one reason for Brighton and Hove Albion fans to celebrate on Saturday evening as we took a hard fought victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Our fourth win of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign lifted us into eleventh place in the top-flight table. The game saw experienced striker Glenn Murray get his expected 100th goal for the club during his many years with us and we registered three consecutive victories in the top-flight for the first time since 1981. Fullback Bruno also became the oldest player (38 years and 26 days) to assist a Premier League goal since Jussi Jaaskelainen back on New Year’s Day 2014.

With so many things to celebrate and enjoy, a section of the Wolves fanbase inadvertently gave fans on social media another reason to smile.

The meltdown was quite astonishing.

The poster of that first comment has issues outside of football.

I’m sure there were a number of Wolves fans who were quite gracious in defeat given both clubs certainly have darker days in their histories and I doubt there’s a single Seagull who doesn’t appreciate how tough a game it was nor how hard we had to work for the victory but all history will remember is the final result.

I wonder if those fans above when Wolves take a victory again where the match wasn’t in their favour, will celebrate the win or stop and apologise for having the temerity to do what the opposition couldn’t despite their greater chances on the day – score.
