    Feel the same.
    Surely there are better options.

    Would this appointment really be a step forward?

    The're known as projects now aren't they, and I presume they didn't feel CH style was the future or the identity of our club.

    Just spit balling here, but I'm guessing that TB along with DA have a vision of how the club wants to progress in the top flight, inc how we play and the ongoing recruitment to support that.

    I'd guess all teams from the first 11 to the youth teams will all be playing the same way eventually like they do at clubs like Barca and Ajax etc, and they want a young forward thining manager at the helm of that .

    It would appear that Potter is their man.

    I doubt TB or DA wanted to spend another £60 mill on players just to have them camped on the 18 yard line all season.
    Fresh Nappies wanted, CASH WAITING!

      Let's be honest, he'd be a gamble, going objectively by looking at his career so far.

      However going by the views of Swansea fans, who know him better than anyone in this country, he'd be a real coup for us.

      I'd be happy if we took the gamble... he wouldn't be the first choice on most of our list's, but we're still only little old Brighton and don't have a wealth of top class proven managers queuing for the job.

      He over achieved in his first job. Amazing work there.

      He has over achieved in the last season considering the overhaul of that Swansea team. I think people have in their minds that Swansea were in the Championship with their prem squad. 90% went, including the entire spine of the team. He has used youth players this season and done brilliantly.

      For those who don't want him, where would he have to come from to be seen as acceptable? I always find the logic of 'needing prem experience' to be a weird one. Nuno at wolves? No experience, did well. Mark Hughes? Loads of experience, rubbish.

      If you have strong ideas and have the players to do it, why does it matter if you've done it before? Did Ranieri (a prem WINNER) improve Fulham?
      Think its more the experience of not just the playing side but everything. So many factors.

      I wonder how many on here who are writing Potter off as "untried at this level" and "not experienced enough" are the same people who wanted Tim Sherwood (or Glenn Hoddle) as manager when we got Chris?

      Of course it would be a gamble but then every managerial appointment is. However experienced a manager is or however successful they have been before, it's still a gamble. Ask Man United.
      Not me.
      Thought Sherwood would be shit. Knew Hoddle would be shit. Suspect Potter will be gone by December.

      Bring back Chris Hughton.

      Thankfully he's done it elsewhere already and very well.

      Quite. Look at the CV of Ralph Hasenhüttl before he arrived at Southampton, hardly a fresh manager considering his Bundesliga experience with different clubs.

      Hughes. Allardyce. Warnock. Pullis.

      Totally agree......The tried and tested list,is pretty uninspiring,with top men,unattainable.......Potter it is ?

      I think we should be looking to recruit a Bundesliga manager, however, I have not pumped millions into this club and also I would hope many at the club have better expertise on football than me
      We can't order Bundesliga managers off Amazon.

      We will not get a top CV at Brighton. They go to bigger clubs. Like in the transfer market, we get what is left.

      That's why I think it is often better to take a gamble on fresh talent. There are lots to pick from and if you get it right the possibilities are endless.

      Every successful manager has to start somewhere.

      He's been a manager for 9 years & had to deal with a Swansea board who are slowly stripping the club of it's assets. I'd say he has experienced quite a bit & ready for the next level.

      Hell of a gamble i agree but could be very exciting.

      Don't think Norwegian league or whatever it was is the same thing somehow.

      Very happy to be proven wrong in time though
