  • "Brighton don't have a God given right to land a top manager, if you strip away the glittering stadium and our state of the art new facility, what you have left is an owner who wants success but not at any price and not instantly.
    The infrastructure of the club is a pointer to our ambitions, you don't spend the amount Bloom has spent without having a plan, but any new manager must look past the glitz and focus on the task ahead.
    Brighton is not an easy c;lub to manage, the fans expect a measure of success every year and after reaching the play-offs two years on the bounce, the fans are now setting their sights higher.
    It might well be that possible appliants have looked at our gate numbers, recognised our two play-off seasons and decided the job is too much of a gamble considering the transfer budget they will have to work with. Finish outside of the play-offs and you might be seen as a failure, by the fans that is.

    The sale of Ulloa could change the whole picture, if the price is right. We don't want to sell him, and we don't want him sold until a new manager is installed, but do we need his money added to the transfer kitty before we can get a high profile replacement for Garcia. Damned if you do and damned if you don't."

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.
