    I think we’re overlooking a lot of this and I propose perhaps this work went a long way to leaving Southgate free to simply coach the team in the England set up which is what attracted the Albion to DA and this way of working.

    Perhaps other more established manager’s egos wouldn’t let them cede power to an administrator so easily and whilst I’m not saying this is what led to CH demise I do wonder behind the scenes whether the media output was somewhat removed from the truth.

    CH might not have a public ego but he will have a preferred way of working and if our new model shifted too far away from this then that’s where the cracks might have emerged.
    Hughton is old school. I'm sure he would have hated having DA around.

      SSN reporting that Potter is undecided on the move As he just moved his fam to Swansea.

      If Bloom screws this up it will be a massive error.

      I was saying yesterday, there is seemingly no plan b... great. For me you never sack anyone based on the assumption your primary target will simply say show me the money...

      I have a bad feeling about this whole episode.

      This idea too, that it’s simply a question of money is bollocks, if he’s a family man - and his kids matter to him and they’re happy... he won’t come, no chance... he’ll be well paid as it is. This and if he feels unready as it were, well smart move by him... gone up a notch in my book.

      It’s going to be a classic Albion shambles... probably end up reappointing CH.

      Trust me. Tony Bloom wouldn't have made the decision he did, when he did without being VERY confident they could get Potter and without Plan B / Plan C.

      Again with the negativity, how do you know there is no plan B? Ridiculous statement.

      I am sure there is a "Plan B" manager. Plan "C" might involve inviting applicants though, and Plan "D" may involve a phone call to Chris Hughton.

      What if plan A doesn't look that exciting or an improvement on Hughton? What chance plan B or C will look a step forward?
      Brighton & Hove Albion will be there long after the current players, manager,chairman......thanks to who?...you of course!

      Given the very large gamble that Bloom is taking here, one would think that he intends to invest significantly in the recruitment of new players. We all knew that this summer was going to be an incredibly important transfer window, even prior to Chris leaving. Bloom has even more riding on it now, and I see this as a period of revolution rather than evolution. That must be quite attractive to any young manager looking to put his own stamp on a Premier League side.
