  • "I'm not a fan of the Burke/Barber/Headcoa
    ch set up and much prefer to see a manager given a budget and the freedom to build his own team. Having said that ( and it pains me to say this ) but the last 2 seasons finishing in the play off positions, with 2 different Managers....Clearly TB has got this bit right and I for one welcome him taking his time in selecting the right person. Whoever it is (Hyypia/Sherwood/ Hughton or someone else) then it will have been well thought out with the best interests of the Club in mind. However - for gods sake, if the new Manager does well, then please let this one stick. We should not be a stepping stone club and we need to give our Head Coach/ Manager some autonomy to strengthen the team with ultimately his own player choices and budget - which he would choose to accept at the time of appointment. He would either get us promoted or fall on his sword, but at least without any excuses... Oh, and one more thing: No more players to leave situation resolved..surely!!!!"

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.
