Albion set for talks in search for manager

The Argus: Paul Barber Paul Barber

Albion are ready to meet candidates for their vacant manager’s job.

But they have told fans they will not rush into a new appointment as they search for the right man to succeed Oscar Garcia.

Chairman Tony Bloom and chief executive Paul Barber have announced they will hold initial meetings with candidates on their short-list in the next few days.

Those in the running vary in nationality and levels of experience.

Barber is delighted with the quality of candidates.

He told seagulls.co.uk: "Our aim is to conclude things as efficiently as possible. The most important thing is not the speed of the appointment, it is about ensuring we find the right candidate that meets our criteria for the next stage of the Albion's development."

Good. I'm happy to hear news of progress being made. I would imagine the shortlist will contain any interested parties from a list of Hughton, Clement, Clarke, Mackay, Lennon, Sherwood and possibly Sami Hyypia (plus maybe one or two others to flesh out the numbers (Mowbray, Robinson?).

I wonder if Di Matteo has applied. Possibly not for same reasons Zola appears not to have done.

Agreed! While it's vitally important to get the right man, it's also vitally important he has as much time as possible to rebuild the squad!

And for that I get 18 thumbs down?.

No mention of David Burke being involved in the selection process.
Could this be an indication that candidates who will not work with a DOF are on the shortlist, and will be seriously considered for the job?

I doubt it. It just means the Chairman and CEO are in charge of recruitment - as they should be.

I wonder if Nigel Clough would be interested? After all he can hardly relish another year in Div 1.

In my opinion he set Steve McClaren up nicely with Derby - by assembling the team which Steve took over and nearly benefitted from. After all - just look at the team which beat Albion 2-1 at the AMEX last August under Clough - virtually the same as the one McClaren played at Wembley.

I for one would welcome him with open arms.

Yes he got the team together but could not motivate them sufficiently to achieve anything. As such he would be a good replacement for Burke with a motivator manager, Sherwood!.

I don't understand the reaction to your post either mate.
I always think that when you don't communicate, others fill the vacuum that's left behind - usually with mis-information or rampant, ill-informed opinion.
Much better to set the agenda and calm everyone down (even by saying everything and nothing at the same time) because the alternative makes it look like:
A - you don't care (which they clearly do)
B - you're not doing anything (which they clearly are) or
C - you haven't got a clue (which I think they have).
I'll happily join you in receiving wholesale disapproval, because in this day and age, you have to find a way to communicate. the Ostrich approach sends the wrong signals.

Here's how it will be. TB, PB and whoever else is making the choice will wait too long and the good candidates will disappear to other clubs. We will end up with third or fourth choice and just have to make do with the scrapings off the bottom of the barrel. And why? Because they won't be prepared to offer a package that will attract a top calibre coach. They'll try to get someone on the cheap and will fail to attract a good guy. We'll probably end up with a Mowbray or a Hughton. When it happens I won't say I told you so just leave it to you to assess the situation.

There are here some who really care about the club and I would put myself in that category after 60+ years of following the ups and downs of the club but unfortunately there are two other categories (1) Those that just like to insert stupid comment and (2) The brain dead that think they no but really don't read it correctly or think they no it all.

I agree, sorted Sheffield out too but would he come?

I find the whole episode strange. Why make a point of saying they are in no rush to find a manager? Almost as if they don't fancy anyone on the shortlist. In the past Tony has just gone out and appointed a manager without going through the charade of a formal set of interviews.

If the chairman fancies a guy who stands out from the crowd, a Sherwood, a Clement, a Clough or a Holloway why insult them by lining them up in competition with the dross in formal interviews. This isn't Britain's Got Talent or the X Factor. This isn't the way CEO's or top bosses are appointed. This isn't the way most football managers are appointed.

The only thing I can think is that given they say there is no rush, the interviews are being conducted to put pressure on the one they really want to make up his mind or lower his demands.

But I just can't see it happening. Please Mr Bloom and Mr Barber - prove me wrong!
I await the thumbs down.
You may be right on the outcome and I have sympathy with your view. But the discussion with Rhodes on here was about general communication not what will ultimately happen.
Sending out the right message can build confidence in the recipients (the fans) and they clearly need to work on you!!!!

I always think that when you don't communicate, others fill the vacuum that's left behind - usually with mis-information or rampant, ill-informed opinion. Much better to set the agenda and calm everyone down (even by saying everything and nothing at the same time) because the alternative makes it look like: A - you don't care (which they clearly do) B - you're not doing anything (which they clearly are) or C - you haven't got a clue (which I think they have). I'll happily join you in receiving wholesale disapproval, because in this day and age, you have to find a way to communicate. the Ostrich approach sends the wrong signals.[/p][/quote]Thanks for the back up. There are here some who really care about the club and I would put myself in that category after 60+ years of following the ups and downs of the club but unfortunately there are two other categories (1) Those that just like to insert stupid comment and (2) The brain dead that think they no but really don't read it correctly or think they no it all. As a Supporter/Follower of Brighton and Hove FC I am just happy that someone from the club at last has given out an up to date positive statement.[/p][/quote]Sorry guys but I am an Albion fan and have been since the early seventies. It's just that I can see that yet again something very strange is going on here. I want to be proved wrong, believe me. I want us to get a good manager. One with some balls and fire and spirit and exciting tactics and the knowledge of the English game to be able to get hold of good players. But I just can't see it happening. Please Mr Bloom and Mr Barber - prove me wrong! I await the thumbs down.[/p][/quote]You may be right on the outcome and I have sympathy with your view.

don't wanna do it like that says...

That Albion keep thight whom they want is normal.

Top candidate says no.
B candidate says no
C candidate says no
Number four says yes,he would not be a happy bunny knowing he was that far down the line.

Seeing these managers might not give their answer there and then,I think
we will have to wait at least another two weeks before there is a new manager(coach)in place.

I think there are quite a few on here that agree, would rather take a chance on a newbie manager than go with the failures sitting in the Market place, anyone that is worth anything is going to be snapped up or will just not apply.
If we can keep someone worthwhile for more than one season (if he isn't frustrated by director of football Mr charisma ) we might just get the opertunity in the Premier league.
