I apologise for this but if you post views here, then this is perhaps important. Not just for the sake of any ego issues. Sherwood look's like a goer by the way.

Well my flabber has well and truly been gasted and not just by events at the Albion. those who post on here regularly will know me for my fence sitting, hopefully reasonable, occasionally well thought (?) out views and a bit of dodgy poetry. Humour optional dependant on your particular disposition. i am an ardent fan and enjoy expressing views from a variety of perspectives and try to avoid self promotion and i told you so.
I ask not for support but an answer what is wrong with the post i put up yesterday? It received thumbs up from friend, foe and fan and plenty of them. There are grammar errors and some of the wording could have been better. But why take it down. Is there an over sensitive reporter or editor out there. Has your moderator decided that thinly veiled references to swearing, blasphemy, threats and other forms of abuse are acceptable but my post is not? And don't even go there with the trolls!!! Has someone taken offence at the first three sentences and thought that i dare to criticise the mighty Argus? It was not a comment on the article or the Argus, you rather over sensitive Argus person. It was saying that no one knows. It was saying don't panic. It was saying don't just blame the Burkes and Barbers. It was saying look at the hand that feeds you Your article was just reporting more or less verbatim a couple of press releases. And those releases did not answer the questions that would be asked. So not your fault. Everyone starts somewhere and whatever your faults (and there are many), why would i take issue without being plain? For the sake of all that's holy to you, is the Argus's ego that sensitive?

'Hungry for news and responsible views? Want a balanced and well written article on what's occurring and why? Well there isn't one at the moment. So let's jump to conclusions and run off at the mouth. Let the soothsayers suggest that they were right all along and the pessimists demand retribution. Let the optimists look forward to next season and the rest of us try and break the fence. The WUMS can of course set the tone to varying degrees of success.
One thing that does escape many on here though... The suits and the Barbers and Burke's are Tony's men. So cry for blood all you like, cherry pick the facts to suit your own point of view, But there is no sign of the generals being purged by the leader. And it is those generals who decide policy along with El Dictator. This ain't no democracy, however much you paid for your ticket. The fluffy days are behind us but remember who paid the piper. I gladly dance to his tune given the alternatives which are largely within recent memory, even for the goldfish on here.
It's not as bad as some would have you think. It's a little disappointing and some of that pent up passion needs venting. But Coaches are ten a penny, players come and go. A good owner is very hard to find...'

'It's not all about the money'. Don't be so damned naïve ! The new manager/coach won't come here if the money's not right. Players won't sign for us if the money's not right. Supporters expect value for their money. Clubs survive because of TV money. MONEY IS ALWAYS THE BOTTOM LINE.

Agreed. He certainly does seem to be 'the one', but for Bournemouth, not necessarily anyone else. He knows that club inside out and has a real chance of taking the Cherries to the play offs next year. Good luck to him.

AS for us, we need our next Gus, someone who is looking to commit to the set up and two or three years sticking with the ups and the downs, to help us realise our potential.

I'm sure Oscar was frustrated but we did actually make some decent bids in January, £1m plus for Clayton, Carayol and Grabban. Perhaps the wage structure is where we are losing out?

Getting the balance right. Not rushing into an appointment, but at the same time appointing a coach in good time for them to be able to look at the players that we have and make informed decisions on who to let go and who to keep.
In addition, they need to have a full pre-season and plenty of opportunity to target and talk to prospective target players.
We don't want the 'suits' selling players before the new coach has had a good look at all the playing staff.

In Basil Fawlty's words this might well be 'Stateing the Bleedin' Obvious'

Good points pablobrowno re bids for Grabban, Clayton and Carayol. For the record we also went after Williams who signed for Millwall.. However the fact we didn't sign even one of these 4 players is the worrying stsatistic.
Whoever we appoint as Manager we need someone who can 'sell' the club to potential acquisitions - clearly DB can't or at least hasn't.

The club is a business. Every business needs a selling point. Our rise from the ashes and the history of the club are a selling point. It's ability to make money and attract the crowds and corporate sponsorship rely on selling points. This is but one but given our recent hhistory, a very important one and one that can be used to great effect.
You miss the point. The club has a soul. Would we sell that to the highest bidder? Or are we perhaps comforted by the embrace of a man who has family ties to our club and has been quoted as saying he cares? The point that you miss is that success can be achieved with principles.
Using your logic, i await cries for a more able investor who can invest the millions needed to get us into Europe. Perhaps Mr Tan is more to your liking and change our strip to red and blue strpies and merge with that lot up the road...?
Of course it's about more than money. But i concede you can't do much without it. But better the devil you know than some faustian nightmare. The stadium is part of the city and part of the community. Money can't buy you everything. Just ask Hull City Tigers.

Oh well, with that off my chest I concur with many that think Sherwood will be a great sijgning but only if he gets the free(ish) reign he needs to do the job. If not we'll be looking for yet another manager/coach before the end of the forthcoming season. UTA in spite of everything.

It's never as simple as "who's the best manager"? It is also about chemistry. Every successful manager, even the best, has had failures: Brian Clough at Leeds, Brendan Rogers at Reading, David Moyes at Man Utd, Eddie Howe at Burnley, to name but a few. Even Fergie was close to being sacked at man Utd at one point. So, the question is not "who's the best manager", but "who's the best manager for Brighton, right now"? He would have to work with not much cash, put up with some boardroom interference (though nothing like as much as some managers have to put up with – even in the premiership!). He'd have to espouse a passing style, but maybe be willing to take more risks than Garcia. After all that, I've concluded that I've got no idea who should be Brighton's new manager!!!!!

If Sherwood is seriously thinking about coming to us, he should first sit down with Gordon Greer, a couple of hours of private talks with the person that surely knows a lot about what was behind Oscar's decision to leave.
All the good points are there to see, Bloom can easy sell what anyone of us could sell, but dig a little deeper Mr. Sherwood, get under the shiny stadium and state of the art training facility, find out the bad and the ugly, the good is obvious.
If there is an underlying problem, then Sherwood needs to know what it is, no surprises some months down the road. If Sherwood is the man then he needs to come into the job with all the facts laid bare, and if there is something that just isn't working, then that something needs fixing before he takes on the role of manager.
You don't quote a price to plant a tree unless you first find out if there are boulders and rocks hidden just below the soil that is covering them up.

Insulting someone is I think one of the things you agree not to do when you sign up. I presume your comment re Burke fell foul of this. (I presume this is also why Freeloaders never managed to go more than a few days without being kicked off.)

Bloom and the suits have a real quandary in their next appointment.

They must sign someone who truly accepts that they won't have an open chequebook and needs to manage within strict FFP guidelines during this over investment period of our history (in infrastructure and facilities).

They need someone who can attract the right players, add new dimensions to existing players old and new and sift out the deadwood... and do it fast and within the playing budget.

They need someone who will fit into the overall philosophy of the club (attractive playing style, a community club, a strong youth and scouting policy and robust talent pipeline) and accept the roles of the wider Club executive and accept they are a head coach, not a manager.

They need to sign a manager that will appease the fans, give hope and ensure the club hold steady on season ticket sales. A Sherwood, a Makay, a Zola, a Di Matteo all fit the bill here but can they accept the above.

Finally, they need a manager for more than one season, a manager who sees the bigger picture. A manager with a shared vision. A manager with the all round coaching ability, personality and winning passion who will resonate with fans, players, sponsors and press alike. A manager that will take us to the premiership in 3 years time but achieving it the Burnley, Southampton and Swansea way, and developing multi million pound players from the academy setup.

If the vision Bloom and co is realised, and the FA play their part and penalise clubs that don't play fairly with FFP, then I am 100% confident that that dream will be realised. As an ardent fan for 35 years, I will be delighted if we come close and continue to perform the way we have been. A few bumps along the road and some disappointing performances won't phase me and I'm sure most real Brighton fans.

Why keep blaming "the suits". Thank god we have some "suits" at the club that seem to know the value of money. I seem to remember TB stating he would never let the club get in the situation that led to Gillingham and I for one agree with him. Those of you who can still remember the grim days of the late 90's probably still pinch yourself every time you get off at Falmer and approach the stadium, enjoy a pint of Harvey's and a great pie before parking your posterior on a padded seat to watch quality Championship football. Enjoy the ride, football is about highs and lows, winning and losing, debate and argument. We have had many lows but right now we are pretty high in the comparison of history. Trust in TB and the men around him, they are not all perfect but how many of us are. to the words of an old protest song "The Seagulls are flying high again" - and one day we will reach the promised land - but when that day comes we will be good and ready, this season we weren't good enough. Maybe next year......

You might need to find a replacement for four of your back five as they are all out of contract now And also replace Lua Lua and Lingard as they are lily gonnas too.

Steve Clarke hasn't been mentioned and is a fair shout for the job. Can develop young players, plays good football, knows his way around the English game, can see the strategy and work to it. A football man through and through.

Not sure Sherwood is the right man and he may already have reservations about the background and boardroom - enough to put him off coming here.

The odds on him, though, are very short before he was even sacked by Spurs.

Given the number of players out of contract, surely we need to get the new manager/head coach in asap!?

If more freedom was available or planned, would the club not have convinced Oscar or even Gus that was the case. Just focussing on Oscar for now, who seems to have conducted himself with poise, focus and not a small amount of class, it was quite clear that the club either failed to convince him things would be different next year, or told him there were no plans for things to change. Under those circumstances, why would we expect a new manager to be told any different. If there is to be no real change, who do you think will take the job?

The only concern with Sherwood is that he does seem throw a bit of a strop at times when under pressure at spurs when the results tailed off, he doesn't come across as level headed which in the pressure of management is a necessity. Then again it may be better away from the glare of the premier league and away from a club like spurs who never quite seem to get it right. Maybe here he can quietly get on with his job and establish himself.

Now we are at the business end of the Championship and play home games at the Amex. Unfortunately, we now also have 20,000 ‘new’ fans with ridiculously unrealistic expectations which is not helping the recruitment of any managerial targets we have, or retention of any manager we appoint.

there's another statement on the seagulls web site!


Brighton & Hove Albion's search for a new manager has already begun, and chief executive Paul Barber says he and chairman Tony Bloom have already received significant levels interest from a number of potential high quality candidates for the job.

Barber said, "Most of yesterday was spent dealing with Oscar's departure; once we confirmed we had accepted his resignation in the early evening, that of course triggered a number of enquiries to the club about the position.

"We can't divulge any names, and we won't comment on media speculation, but at this stage what I can say is that we have been contacted by some very high calibre managers and coaches who want to work for Brighton & Hove Albion - and it’s certainly a very good indication of just how far our club has come in a very short period of time.

He also confirmed the new role will be under the title of the club's manager, adding, "The position we are recruiting for is for that of first-team manager.

"Once the legal proceedings had concluded last summer, Oscar was offered the title of manager - as his role and responsibilities were the same as the previous manager's - but Oscar chose to retain his original title of head coach.

"The new position will also be the same role and have the same responsibilities as Oscar but, to avoid any ambiguity, we will revert to the title of manager."

This goes out to the two sisters whoever you might be - as a person who pays for 3 season tickets and makes what I feel is THE significant contribution to your hometowns club, ie: I have influenced both my kids to wear the blue&white and not swan around Brighton in Man U or Liverpool colours, all I'am saying is appoint the right candidate to do the job on offer - which in the real world usually means someone who presents with the required credentials - are we here to push Sherwoods career along or do we want someone to push this club along? Some on here already have the bloke in the boardroom discussing purchases with "the suits" .....

Was Sherwood at tottenham when Burke and Barber were there? If so, the appointment may already have been made.

We all need Mr Bloom to make a statement asap on the current situation and why it has occurred. Although I suspect a lot of us know the reasons why. Please Mr Bloom tell us how decisions are made on recruitment of players. Why are we buying players who are clearly injury prone? Why are the highly paid medical staff not able to get these players fit for a full 90 minutes and a series of games?
I am a believer in the old way of running a football club. Okay the corporate side is important and the club has to be run like a modern business in this age of massive financial rewards/payments. But, Head of Football Operations, or whatever fancy name you wish to call him, is not liked by sensible managers in the football world. Look at Liverpool who listened to Brendan Rodgers concerns on this. Let a good scouting network find the type of players the MANAGER WANTS and let the suits decide if we can afford those players only. A manager picks the team, the tactics and the players to produce those tactics.
Having been a supporter since the 60's I am amazed at how far we have come after so many wilderness years. Lets hope Mr Bloom reads the sensible comments on this site and makes the right decisions we all want for the future of our great club.

Another 'Fancy Dan' is just what this club doesn't need. Eddie Howe is a young, gifted coach who has performed miracles at Bournemouth. He's the one.

Agreed. He certainly does seem to be 'the one', but for Bournemouth, not necessarily anyone else. He knows that club inside out and has a real chance of taking the Cherries to the play offs next year. Good luck to him.

AS for us, we need our next Gus, someone who is looking to commit to the set up and two or three years sticking with the ups and the downs, to help us realise our potential.

I'm sure Oscar was frustrated but we did actually make some decent bids in January, £1m plus for Clayton, Carayol and Grabban. Perhaps the wage structure is where we are losing out?
Good points pablobrowno re bids for Grabban, Clayton and Carayol. For the record we also went after Williams who signed for Millwall.. However the fact we didn't sign even one of these 4 players is the worrying stsatistic.
Whoever we appoint as Manager we need someone who can 'sell' the club to potential acquisitions - clearly DB can't or at least hasn't.
I agree the man has no charisma whatsoever my firs impressions were this bloke reminds me of a pastor or weather man from TV not a guy with enthusiasm oozing from every word when describing the clubs ambition, these people hide and suck up to the boss, yes men in suits.
Time to go!
