    As none of us are privy to what goes on behind closed doors we can only guess. We didn't have much luck with transfer dealings, plain and obvious, but we can only speculate as to why that was. Oscar really only had the second window to get anything done and maybe the targets he identified didn't arrive because of price, wages, length of contract, promised playing time or any other reason, there are so many.

    I am not one for dwelling on the past, today is more important than yesterday and tomorrow has the potential to be more exciting. Lessons have to be learned from yesterday, and I am sure they have been, but where we are today is all down to Bloom, he sets the rules that others have to follow, be they Burke, Barber or anyone else. It's easy to point the finger at the suits but at the end of the day, Bloom is the boss and it is he that sets the guide lines for others to adhere to. If we didn't spend what we needed to in order to sign some targets that's because ultimately Bloom holds the purse strings, the others are just working to agreed budgets no matter who they are.

    Broken promises, well the doors were closed when that talk took place so who knows what was promised, if anything. Oscar came in with his eyes wide open, just as the next guy will, if the package is not what they would hope it to be, then best they walk away now, no good crying later."

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.
