Lawro backs Hyypia appointment

The Argus: Sami Hyypia in his playing days with Liverpool Sami Hyypia in his playing days with Liverpool

Sami Hyypia will be ready for the challenge of Championship management – despite having spent his entire English league career in the top flight.

That is the view of Albion and Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson as Hyypia prepares to take charge at the Amex on a three-year deal.

Hyypia, 40, was tonight confirmed as the Seagulls' new first team manager with Nathan Jones working as his assistant. 

Lawrenson believes the Finn had his sights on coaching and management even before he made his emotional farewell as Liverpool player.

He finished his career at Bayer Leverkusen before moving into management with the Bundesliga giants.

Lawrenson told The Argus: “Since he came towards the end of his career I think he thought ‘This is for me’ so he has been boning up.

“Everyone loved him at Anfield. He was a super player and a really good character.

“He’s a proper guy.”

Great signing for the Albion. Well done TB. Now we can start to rebuild our team. Shame about Corporal Jones still being around though. UTA?

Well an appointment confirmed them. We all wish very well and look forward to the challenges ahead, not least working with NJ (sorry didn't mean to through in that negative). Let us hope he has brought with him a list of achievable player targets and a clear idea on the composition of his coaching team, including an attacking coach.

Looking at Bundisliga performance pretty mean defence, goals scored about average. Decent profile as a player which, ,with the ground and training facilities makes us an attractive proposition.

Sherwood and houghton turned the Albion down, clearly jones was part of the deal which meant no established manager would take the job,
On the good side this is his chance, and he needs to step up, will he bring a goal keeping coach? And other staff.

How on earth do you know they turned us down?
Whilst many of your complaints may be well intentioned, you do have a tendency to assume you know what has been going on behind the scenes.
Sherwood was manager for a few months, Hughton was sacked by Norwich

At least Sami took Bayer to 4th in the Bundesliga before being sacked.
Also you assume Sami was told he had to keep NJ
Perhaps he wanted someone on the team with a history at the Albion
You don't know, I don't know
So lets be positive and believe SH & NJ are the dream team

I actually feel a lot better about this appointment than I thought I would, and I hope Sami is accepted by all those who favoured a different candidate. All the rumour and speculation is now over, and the important business of building a team can begin.
Not many would have predicted a coaching team consisting of Sammi Hyypia and Nathan Jones, but they have got the job, and deserve the chance to get on with it, without having a lot of negativity directed at them. That includes Nathan.

You never know it may have been his coaching abilities that brought Ince, Solly & JFC up to 1st team reckoning.
Stephens came from Charlton and stated he was pleased to team up with NJ again.
So quite simply I prefer to believe TB and now Sami see that NJ is a decent coach and worth keeping rather than believe the few on here who have decided to dislike him for whatever reason

If Lawro thinks this a good appointment, them that's good enough for me.
As regards Nathan Jones, I don't understand the negativity. Could it be he's a good coach and did a good job last year. It just seems people have a perceived view of him based on nothing concrete.
We should let him and Sami (and whoever Sami brings in) get on with the job we want them to do.
We're all on the same side aren't we? UTA

I think it should read honing not boning!
Then get a dictionary and bone up on honing as in 'to hone one's skills' and 'boning up on something' meaning 'to prepare, read up, self educate'.

Is this not a good appt? Really? Even if other people turned us down (which is speculation) a big team in Germany thought Sami had something! I personally think this is a great appt, if anybody did turn us down (of which their isn't any proof) then it's their loss!!! Someone has an opportunity to make a big name for themselves, this club is ripe for the next level...,,,,,

Sherwood and houghton turned the Albion down, clearly jones was part of the deal which meant no established manager would take the job,
On the good side this is his chance, and he needs to step up, will he bring a goal keeping coach? And other staff.
Your always a bundle of laughs arn't you?
Can you ever be positive.....whateve

I am pleased it is Hyppia, he continues Bllom's policy of obtaining young and ambitious managers for an ambitious club.
Well said piglet1 - the moaners will just moan on and on - eventually moaning their way to say "I told you so." Stoked for the summer and for automatic promotion to the PL - welcome Sami and good for you Nathan Jones!

No way was jones an issue, if the first choice whoever that might have been wanted Jones out he would be gone.
Without doubt.
