    Hyypia had a 53% win rate at Leverkusen!!! just find it a bit frustrating with all the alleged candidates interested we had weeks ago, did we ever give interviews to the likes off Sherwood Clarke or Hughton, or was it just boookies and paper talk about them being interested,
    Jeff there is, 'interested,' and then there is, 'INTERESTED.' If as the weeks go by, and you are a manager who recently become unemployed but wants to get back to work quickly, your interest in available jobs increases as each window of opportunity closes.
    I am sure that some of the touted possible names were interested, interested in so far as being prepared to talk, but maybe not interested enough to say yes and close all other avenues. My guess is that Hyypia is, INTERESTED, possibly because he does not head the list of other possible optional clubs, he probably see us as his best chance to get back to work.
    If we did talk to those you have named, I doubt we will ever be told that."

Hyypia new favourite for Albion job

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.
