    Mark, your call for our new manager to be given enough funds to go for promotion, I assume you mean promotion this year, correct?

    I am left wondering if you really mean it when you call for that level of funds to be made available in just one season. If I were to suggest that at this time we need around nine new players, would I be that far out? If we were to make the big challenge this season, do you think that those remaining in the squad today, are all of a standard to get us there, or would we have to think about replacing two or three of them too?

    Mark what would be your idea of a suitable budget to see us go for it, this season?
    A budget in line with the club having 24000 season tickets , who pay premiership money to watch pretty poor football if I am honest,
    We need 12 players, most of those will want a two year deal....
    Example who would have had Ward on there left back list 12 months ago?
    Now realise he is on £600k a year,
    If we go cheaper ? Exactly how much are we going to pay theses fill in players who I assume your saying won't get us out of this league?
    FFP rules won't help clubs who don't recieve parachute payments, infact the gap between clubs with and without will get wider as FFP rules hit years three.
    How exactly are we going to go forward paying second class players to entertain people paying first class prices?
    I honestly think someone is assuming the 24000 are here to stay! And the fans will part with more cash to recieve poorer fair!
    If your suggesting a different scenario I would love to hear it! But signing cheap is a expensive gamble if it fails.
    and so your budget figure is???
    10 million for wages and purchases.
    12 players on average of 12k a week = 7 million a year.
    Fees 1.2 million ( movement and agent fees)
    4 x 500k to buy quality players under 25 years
    The average Championship salary is I think 5k but given our gates I don't think 10m unreasonable or outside of FFP.

    Why can't we afford a playing budget of 10m when TV money contributes 5m and gate receipts are 20m plus merchandising, catering and sponsorship. The rule of thumb is that player wages should be no more than two thirds of total income. That means we should be able to have a playing budget of 20m
    Average salary at the Albion =
    CMS 17k a wk
    Barnes was on about 6.5 k a week .
    The likes of Dunk JFC are probably on the 3-4 k a week
    I was surprised whitehawk pay one 1500 a week , and others around the 1000 a week ."

Hyypia new favourite for Albion job

The Argus: Sami Hyypia Sami Hyypia

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.
