    So a long list of impressive candidates. Who are/were they? This is becoming another close season shambles. And I think the powers that be are starting to take the fans for mugs now.
    I have nothing against Hyppia if he is the one but it is pretty obvious that he would not have been the no 1 choice. If so that means the people who were supposedly interviewed last week all were pretty shoddy in the interviewing technique department (doubtful) or that they wanted either a salary that wouldnt be forthcoming, or an actual say over transfers (likely).
    So if it is Hyppia I will wish him good luck and dont forget to do as you are told, any dissent or hint of dissatisfaction and you will out on your ear.
    See you all again this time next year for the next gripping instalment that is the annual Albion manager hunt!
    it is also obvious that the calbre of other clubs looking for a new manager would mean that Brighton is not the first choice of some of the available applicants. 'Out on your ear,' Poyet was fired for gross misconduct and Gracia chose to leave, so who is it you are refering to when you say one of our managers has found himself, out on his ear?
    I have re-read my post and nowhere have I said that either of those 2 or any other manager were out on their ear. But obviously Gus was fired, like him or loathe him I dont think anyone could doubt his talents. As for Oscar, well there was seemingly a difference of opinion over transfer targets in January and this was one of the reasons why he departed?
    So if it is Hyppia (and it is all speculation I agree) then he will have agreed I assume to run with whatever the board have asked."

Hyypia new favourite for Albion job

Sami Hyypia

Sami Hyypia

First published in Albion

Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia is the new favourite to take over as Albion manager.

Hyppia’s odds were slashed to a best-price Evens today as the Seagulls hunt for a successor to Oscar Garcia.

The Finn was being quoted as odds-on with two bookies.

Hyypia was linked with the Albion job last month and is keen to get back into management.

He was dismissed by Bayer Leverkusen two months ago.

Albion spoke to contenders last week and the quest to replace Oscar is continuing.
