French side Reims are waiting on Albion’s big managerial decision – so they can appoint their own boss.

The Seagulls have spoken to experienced French coach Frédéric Hantz and former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia as they seek a successor to Oscar Garcia.

Top-flight Reims are ready to hand over their first-team reins to Hantz if he does not end up at the Amex.

Meanwhile Hyypia has revealed he has been contacted by other clubs but, in a brief interview in Finland, confirmed positive talks with Albion.

He said: “Discussions are continuing in a good spirit. Let’s see where they lead.”

Top men from Football League clubs are currently in Portugal for their annual meeting.

Meanwhile Albion will host Southampton in their only friendly at the Amex this summer.

The South Coast sides meet on Thursday, July 31 (7.45pm).

Morning boys,
Well nearly another week has passed and still no manager in place, be surprised if it was announced today if there having to go to Portugal for league meeting, I'm not panicking just yet because we have not appointed a manager yet, but my concern is we're obviously not doing any new player business coming in until we have someone in place, alot off clubs are getting there new signings early, just hope we don't panic buy if we leave it much longer, the important thing is we make the right appointment for our next manager and who ever comes in is given funds to spend, hard enough getting out off this league while spending millions, but get no where spending chocolate buttons!!
Up the Albion!!

Well the fact that a French premier league side are after him sounds good. What sounds less good are some of his training methods - and I kid you not ! Running at 6.00 am, training in the pitch dark and ...... wait for it - players dancing for supporters before games. Yes, well - we could be in for some 'interesting' times.

As l said a few weeks ago the longer we haven't got a manager/first team coach in place the lower down TB's list of possibilities he will be looking and l doubt any mentioned here were in his top 5.

I think were going to be in the same position as last year, manager/first team coach with no experience in England and relying on Jones and The Blues Brothers.

Wish the same on you mate. Who are you to judge Nathan Jones? He was good enough for Charlton and deemed good enough for us. It could easily have been him ending Up with Poyey in the premier league.

I'm sure Tony Bloom is intelligent enough to realize that if he is serious about taking us into the Premier League, not only will he need to ensure Premier League quality manager, but coaching staff as well.

I'm also confident that he has the intelligence to understand that all successful clubs allow the manager to choose his own assistant - that is why they go with them everywhere and why Oscar's guys have returned to Israel with him.

Nathan Jones is probably an excellent fellow and very loyal and obedient to his superiors - and I just have a deep sense that there is a different mission for him in life right now and I wish him well wherever he ends up.

Any manager worth his salt will decide on his assistant and a Chairman/Owner worth his salt like Tony Bloom will insist on that as well. I'm excited that by the end of next week we will have an excellent managerial team in place and England will have begin their amazing journey to lifting the World Cup. Positivity is surging through my veins today.

I can't help wondering just how much input the new manager will have into any new signings bearing in mind the current set up with Burke etc - but more importantly he will not have seen (what is left of!) our 'squad' in action and they are not due back for another 10 days or so! Hantz will know sweet FA about the Championship and Hyppia may not be far behind him and bearing in mind the initial couple of weeks training will be largely getting fitness levels up I find it difficult to believe that a manager new to this league will be in a position to fully assess this squad and detail their requirements and get those players in prior to the trip to Spain on the 9 July which is now only a few weeks away!!

I think it's brilliant. All designed to break down the ego mind so that greater creativity is naturally allowed to flow through in their performances.

Morning all. Well I dint know about you lot but I'm getting seriously jittery now. I know they said they were going to take their time but is is getting a bit farcical. Unknown and some relatively unknown names just popping out of the hat. I really think they have lost the plot and have not been able to make any promises to potential candidates that make those people seriously want to consider coming here.
It is however interesting to note that as yet - and please correct me if I'm wrong - I haven't yet heard of the likes of Malky, Sherwood, Clarke etc actually signing for someone else yet. I know there have been rumours and stories in the press about their preferences but none have actually signed on the line anywhere.
Only two things I don't want - NJ in a suit and Hughton.
I'll take Renee over those two. UTA!

All TB - and those around him - will be thinking is about making the right decision, not how it will be received. Which is how it should be.

During the season I've enjoyed adding my thoughts & reading others on here, when there has been something of any note to discuss.
However the last couple of weeks have made painful reading (when I can actually be a***ed to read more than the first two comments) because all I'm seeing is the same old recycled dross from the same people day in day out..
There are no matches to talk about, no manager in place & no new signings so what the hell justifies paragraph after paragraph about absolutely nothing.

I'm all for showing a bit of passion about your club so sorry if I've hurt a few feelings & I'm sure the comments will become interesting again once something of note happens.
For now though it's time to enjoy the World Cup & get some sun on my back.
Adios

PS. For what it's worth I would have liked Sherwood to get the job

I can just see it , The Albion announce their new 20 goal a season striker ,who will make his home debut on Saturday ,but you can watch him humiliate himself before KO in front of our rivals fans ,yeah right lets give croydon girls club something else to beat us on the head with !.
That's the whole point Tug - all the time the players, or supporters, are attached to the good opinion of another - they will be limited! I truly respect your opinion as I need to remember that I was there at one time!!!!

However, I eventually, with the help of fantastic coaches, learned that what ANYONE thought about me was none of my business and said more about them than it did about me.

Trust me - this is a new era we are entering. If you haven't yet seen it please watch Harry Redknapp's interview by his son, Jamie.

Harry admitted that he was one of 'the old school' managers who believed all this mind stuff was 'woo woo'. Then he revealed that he was convinced to bring someone in to work with his coaches and players and he admitted on film that he felt it was the reason they not only reached the Play Off Final, but against all seeming odds, won it! It's a wonderful insightful interview by an honest 'old pro'!

So when players realize that the only thing which is stopping them achieving their dreams is FEAR! And the biggest fear is the fear of what other people think of them - either good or bad. When you are influenced by EITHER of those - you'll always be limited.

David Beckham is a classic example of someone with average natural ability, could barely string two sentences of the English Language together, couldn't do Maths, etc etc but he wasn't attached to what others thought of him. Including God (SAF)! And see what he has achieved.

So when our well meaning supporters chant abuse at so called rival supporters it's only because of FEAR. Those who have no fear don't need to attack people. All attack is simply FEAR and fear reduces your energy - and therefore your performance.

So I personally welcome this guys ideas and I couldn't give a s*** what anyone else thinks of me or my team. The great thing is when the players at his club saw themselves getting promoted year after year they would soon realize that he knows what he's doing.

If the guy can prove to TB he can carry us forward then so be it.
Also does this mean Steve Clarke could be back in the frame. Depends if he's turned us down already like Malky.
The plot thickens. UTA
Yep, always possible that Clarke politely said he couldn't commit while still in the frame for Celtic but would come if not. Perfectly understandable in my view if so, but then again, it's just another in a long line of guesses....

The new Celtic Manager is Ronny Deila who has been coaching Stromsgodset in Norway. So yes Clarke is potentially available and obviously isn't a contender for the WBA job
I see that the Daily Star states that the choice for BHA is between Hantz and Hyypia. The Mirror says Hantz will be offered the post, while the Times reports that Hyypia has already been offered it.
Wisdom Speaks makes a good point about the importance of the selection of the successful candidate's 'team'. Personally I lean towards Hyypia largely because of his knowledge of English football which should make him less reliant on David Burke on the recruiting front.
I hope and half expect an announcement on Monday or Tuesday. TB will have had 4 weeks since Oscar's resignation to assess and fully consider the merits and suitability of the various different candidates he has been looking at. As other posters have pointed out, we need a decision soon since apart from anything else pre-season starts in only 3 weeks time.
Confident that TB will make the right decision. UTA.

Thank you FWS. I truly appreciate everyone having their own opinion - that's what true freedom if speech is all about and why you won't find me reacting abusively to whatever is voiced. And it certainly doesn't give me 'a bit of a downer for a while' since it isn't my intention to convince anyone of anything and I'm unattached to what anyone thinks - I'm only expressing my opinions based on experiences.

I remember very clearly when I used to think that the person who first introduced me to this work was completely off his rocker! So I understand. However I decided to keep an open mind and when I eventually saw the
positive results of applying what he taught me I was convinced - and I guess that's what happened to this French guy's team. I would suggest that successive promotions and keeping the team in the upper reaches of Ligue 1 with very limited resources means that WHATEVER he did - worked. And I must say I have watched a lot of football in France and have enjoyed much of what I've seen.

So I certainly will keep 'taking the pills' (I love that analogy) and allow others to keep taking theirs. Wonderful to be able to exchange ideas without getting triggered into anger or abuse isn't it?

Bring him in Tony!!!
I can just see it , The Albion announce their new 20 goal a season striker ,who will make his home debut on Saturday ,but you can watch him humiliate himself before KO in front of our rivals fans ,yeah right lets give croydon girls club something else to beat us on the head with !.
That's the whole point Tug - all the time the players, or supporters, are attached to the good opinion of another - they will be limited! I truly respect your opinion as I need to remember that I was there at one time!!!!

However, I eventually, with the help of fantastic coaches, learned that what ANYONE thought about me was none of my business and said more about them than it did about me.

Trust me - this is a new era we are entering. If you haven't yet seen it please watch Harry Redknapp's interview by his son, Jamie.

Harry admitted that he was one of 'the old school' managers who believed all this mind stuff was 'woo woo'. Then he revealed that he was convinced to bring someone in to work with his coaches and players and he admitted on film that he felt it was the reason they not only reached the Play Off Final, but against all seeming odds, won it! It's a wonderful insightful interview by an honest 'old pro'!

So when players realize that the only thing which is stopping them achieving their dreams is FEAR! And the biggest fear is the fear of what other people think of them - either good or bad. When you are influenced by EITHER of those - you'll always be limited.

David Beckham is a classic example of someone with average natural ability, could barely string two sentences of the English Language together, couldn't do Maths, etc etc but he wasn't attached to what others thought of him. Including God (SAF)! And see what he has achieved.

So when our well meaning supporters chant abuse at so called rival supporters it's only because of FEAR. Those who have no fear don't need to attack people. All attack is simply FEAR and fear reduces your energy - and therefore your performance.

So I personally welcome this guys ideas and I couldn't give a s*** what anyone else thinks of me or my team. The great thing is when the players at his club saw themselves getting promoted year after year they would soon realize that he knows what he's doing.
Well that wasn`t patronising at all ! in fact i feel whole again ,indeed one with the world ,and my spiritual rebirth will all be down to a man who would enjoy seeing the Albion lads take to the field in feckin tootoo`s .
Anything that works is worthy of a trial ,but absolutely not at the risk of making dancing chimps out of our lads ,and the football world to say " and they wonder why they are on the end of some of the chants they get .
There is no place for the Ilene drury`s (or whatever her face was ) in football ,just a good manager ,staff and motivation ,build team morale ,in the same way our Spanish lads did and do with a bit of social life ,a team should be a team on and off the pitch ,not dancing clowns on Saturday and in the Psychics chair on Sunday .
