  • "Looks like the one thing we agree on here is...we all disagree on who the next manager should be.

    Should the club be thinking outside the box (Hyppia) or going with someone who has already managed in the Championship (Hughton, McDermott, Warnock etc.)?

    My view, for what it's worth, is it doesn't really matter who we appoint if we sell Ulloa and don't find quality replacements for TK, Upson and Ward.

    The strength of our team last season was our defence and now it has been decimated. Burke has a far bigger job to do finding quality players than the new coach will have in preparing the team for the coming season."

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.
