    Guess what. I really don't give a dam anymore. I have supported Albion for 65 years and the only certainty about the new manager/coach appointment is this. His salary will probably be non negotiable, his role will be to train the team with an imput only with regard to team selection. His masters will be the Director of Football, the Chief Executive Officer ad Tony Bloom. He will find it hard to carry out his job description. It was clear to me that Oscar Garcia was no Gus Poyet, indeed he was very much under qualified to be Albion's Manager/Coach. It was the determination of the players that resulted in the team reaching the play offs, not Garcia. He had no commitment to Albion. He is now back in Israel with his former club according to the Argus. I think this is where his ability and commitment is best suited Sorry to mention the word money but football is primarily a business..
    Excellent post and you understand the situation exactly, especially about Garcia. A lot of people working at the Club, that I talk to often, thought he was useless and so did I. T.B. did eventually realise but he admits privately it was a mistake to employ him.
    Amazes me that others cannot and could not see it but I suppose most of the posters on here don't live around Brighton so they don't really know what is happening and rely on the few articles that the Argus post on this site. Remember, folks, there are many other columns and articles that don't get posted. This is not the whole newspaper...that's why it's free!
    Two interesting posts.
    Good posts guys. I for what it's worth thought that OG as good a man as he came across, tactically he was good enough during the games (all) that i saw at home and my fellow season ticket holders felt the same.
    So may be TB agreed.
    New guy must be near being announced soon .
    Should read not good enough
    I honestly thought our dead ball stuff is a good indicator of what goes on the training ground .. Our corners, free kicks were tepid, lacked any clear planning and was very poor.
    The next thing is during the season they never improved? Where was the stat man commenting about that? Surely jones would have grabbed two or three and worked on things ? I don't think OG can take all the criticism .. Jones in no doubt well paid.. Sadly he is low level coaching standard, ie Yeovil"

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.
