    Mark I am not so sure that your math works for us. You kind of identify where a budget of 10M might come from but apart from Bridcutt, would we not have to buy simillar quality of players that have left in order to stay inside of your 10M figure? Vicente, 15K a week, didn't he leave before our previous season started?

    The money you identify from sales and wage savings might be right, apart from Vicente, but as I say, would that not mean that we only have a budget to buy like for like palyers. A promotion squad surely has to be of a quality above what we had, and likely to cost more to put together, or am I missing soemthing?
    Who has joined since Gus left? Last season TB announced we would increase the budget from the previous year, unless I have missed somebody I can't see where that has gone?
    I have allowed wages in savings from players not replaced,, plus sale figures,
    I am not talking about increasing the budget , but keeping it where it was 12 months ago, add the 5% increase in seat costs.
    ok now I get it, thanks. Well stumping up 10M might be doable but for me that isn't enough for us to challenge for the top in a single season, not with the amount of shirts that need filling. Add to that I am not convinced all those we have retained are going to start this season, not if we want a top two finish.

    Greer, good captain but as said so many times last season, he is a yard slow. Buckley is filling a shirt right now but will he stay and even if he does, can we rely on his fitness next season. Is Dunk a starter or back up.

    Even if we had taken a more attacking approach last season, fact is our squad wasn't good enough, maybe because so many were injured and maybe not, but we were not top two material. We need better for a challenge this year, and better costs money. If we are to go for it in one season Mark, as good as the 10M looks, I think we will need more. Do we need to sell Ulloa, a step backwards to maybe help us go forward?"

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.
