    I'm wondering if Tony has pulled a master stroke in negotiations?

    I used to run seminars on negotiating and one of the main points we would get over was try to get the other side to put their cards on the table first.

    Whether by design or luck Swansea have done just that. Potter now knows exactly what Swansea will offer.

    We'll have a pretty good idea what that is, he may even tell us outright, but at least we'll have a chance to beat whatever it is they are offering.

    Canny customer, that Tony Bloom
    Eh? We can beat him on all sorts of fronts, such as: more pay, more money going into the squad, a higher level, the famed training facilities, and so on. The issue I take it that Potter's weighing up is: is this the right move for me now?

      I'd imagine he's also still very well thought of by the management at BHA. He had 2 great seasons with us in the Championship, and then kept us in the Premier League twice, all while being a classy ambassador for the club. Ultimately it seems as though Bloom has decided he wants a different style of football here, but that takes nothing away from Chris or his legacy here.
      Well said.

      Great manager, great person.

      Remains a daft decision IMO.....

      I'm not saying getting Swansea to put their cards on the table first will necessarily work.

      I'm saying it's an excellent negotiating technique

      It was a decision. It may end up being a great one, it may indeed end up being a daft one - but unless it was made we'd never have known.

      The only thing which is worrying me is that the names being touted around are ones I wouldn't have replaced CH with....

      I suspect that the one that's displaying excellent negotiating technique is Potter, because he seems fully aware that two clubs (with their own attractive features) are after him. If I'm right in this suspicion, it endears me all the more to him.

      Yes.

      The whole thing is about taking the club forward, which of course makes sense, but I can’t see where the improvement is, given the managers concerned.

      That said we could get Pep and it could still go pear- shaped......

      Who knows? Glad it’s Friday

      If I can offer you a crumb of comfort, it would be that Bloom & co will be looking far and wide, and they won't be telling us whom they are interested in.
      Thank you Chris, you're a legend.

      Is the correct answer.
      When you are out and about, if you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

      Based on what ? Out of interest.
      Purely personal opinion, he just makes my skin crawl.
