Knockaert relishing second chance in Premier League thanks to Brighton promotion


Thanks to Tony "The Lizard" Bloom, Brighton & Hove Albion FC have now gained promotion to the Premier League, where next season they will do battle against such iconic football teams as Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

"It was an ambition and challenge for me, and they told me straight away that it was the club's ambition to reach the Premier League".

Manager Chris Hughton stayed in charge despite their heartbreak in the last campaign and chief executive Paul Barber believes loyalty remains the best policy as they bid to stay in the Premier League, though he is ready to delve into the transfer market to bolster their chances.

Brighton are going up into the Premier League for the first time and into the top tier of English for the first time since 1983. Bloom's biggest score came in 2011 after finishing runner-up at the A$100,500 Aussie Millions Poker Championship for A$975,000 ($964,296), and past year, "The Lizard" also entered the $1 million buy-in Monte-Carlo One Drop Extravaganza. We have to strengthen, that goes without saying.

"Brighton is a wonderful place for people to come and the support base has been exceptional this season - we've seen crowds grow, we've probably had more full houses this season than any other season, and that's testament to what the players have done and to what the supporters have enjoyed". But we're not looking to spend huge amounts. But Bloom said he would stick to a sensible spending strategy.

And maybe that's true, but the details seem a lot more complicated than the film portrays them as being. He said watching the documentary was somewhat hard, especially scenes with Houston, who died in 2012.

Glenn Murray opened the scoring for Brighton eight minutes before half-time in front of their own fans at the Amex Stadium. 'He gets a lot of respect and huge amount of credit from me.

"We were in a bad position when he came in", Bloom said. Everyone is impressed with the job he's done at Brighton.

Anthony Knockaert is relishing a second crack at the Premier League after helping Brighton end their 34-year exile from the top flight. "He did that. It wasn't pretty or easy", he added.
