    I wonder if TB will sacrifice Winstanley if Potter insists on bringing his head of recruitment from Swansea, as has been suggested? And how will that affect Ashworth?
    I thought it has already been stated Ashworth is going to head up recruitment with Winstanley reporting to him. We seem to be getting a bit too heavy in the boss department, don't forget we brought in David Wier just to manage all the players out on loan recently This lot must be costing a fortune

      Some of the speculation on this thread is amazing. People have absolutely no idea what is going on so start to invent stranger and stranger scenarios in their own head, and then get annoyed by said made up scenario. Completely bizarre.

      Don't think it's that, he just working out what's best for him. All the allure of Premier League riches is probably offset by the fact that he'll have to move his family again, so he probably wants to see if there'd be any footballing justification in him staying around. If Swansea just plan on selling all their best players and not reinvesting the funds, he'll come down here
      So he's a bit luke warm about a move, and would rather get a few assurances at Swansea.

      There must be people on the short list who are a little bit keener ?

      I'm sure Alan Pardew will be up for it

      These few days are normally just formalities. Media and Press make some stuff up to fill in on what they don't know while Potter talks things over with wife and family and gets their approval
      It's just not Potter that needs to talk it over with his family. Sounds like a few other people are involved and all will need to decide if they want to leave Swansea or not.

      OK if Potter says no then the whole thing is a non starter but if he wants to come then he will no doubt be talking things over with the others.

      If he's on the short list, I despair.

      More speculation.....until Swansea agree, we can’t even talk to him (officially). Now they know we want him, they’re doing their best to convince him to stay.

      My guess :

      At some point in the next day or two he might insist Swansea give him permission to talk to us, citing that he ‘hasn’t received the assurances he needs about future investment in the playing squad’ or something. They tell us there is a release clause of £xm, Tony says ‘whatever’ and he comes to Sussex for a chat.

      24 hours later he’s being photographed with Tony at Lancing saying it’s his dream move, always liked the club, excited by the opportunity etc etc

      20 minutes later he’s dismissed on here as ‘shite’.

      Any idea where he grew up himself?

      Even when we were sending players home with their kit to be washed we always got loads of applications whenever the manager's job became available. I like the idea of a progressive manager like Potter because it appears to be a forward looking change of direction. However, if he stays at Swansea we will be swamped with applicants eager to join us.

      Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

      51,700 v Burnley last game in 1978/79. 4,005 v Wimbledon in 1984. Same division. I think this shows the real plastics.
