  • "Is Tony Bloom looking for a Manager who will play a certain style of football? Does anyone remember at what point there was talk of a Club philosophy where the same system would be in operation at all levels, to enable continuity from the Academy right through to the first team.?
    What happens if, for example, Chris Hughton is interviewed, and tells Mr. Bloom to forget possession football. The only way he can get us promoted is by playing direct counter-attacking 442. Does that rule him out?
    Could the style of play that is required be another issue that candidates for the job will have to contend with?"

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.
