    Whoever we get it's time someone stated the truth! Of course Tony Bloom has done an incredible job by paying for everything for a few years. However, it cannot be denied that the club has now an appalling record for managerial changes. For whatever reason - I'm not suggesting who is responsible but let's face some facts.

    This next manager will be our SIXTH MANAGER IN SIX YEARS! That is nothing short of disgraceful and no recipe for building a successful club. That's all that I'm highlighting and suggest we need some kind of policy to get some stability in the place. Surely the powers that be recognize that stability is the bedrock of long term and sustained success.

    And it's no good saying Oscar left us in the lurch - let's start asking why these changes. Fat Boy Slim's sly dig at Oscar on that Sky TV show was low class and if that's the attitude of the Board in general we have got problems.

    It's like refusing to sell Dick Knight's book in the club shop - it all smacks of petty egos run wild and that seems to be affecting the club as a whole.
    6 in 6 years but the next will be the 3rd in 5 years (Bloom has improved the ratio / longevity and the two departures were the managers' choices not the board's. Yes we may have not done enough or the right things but that's a separate issue that is debatable and unknown to fans.

    Fat Boy Slim is a pop star rather than a seasoned football director.

    Dick Knight's book is allegedly libellous. If true, the club are avoiding petty ego tripping by not sueing."

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.
