    Unless we have new players with a lot more pace than the present team I can't see a huge difference. Pressure to finish 17th or better will override the desire to be like Fulham last season.

      so therefore as we witnessed when we did show some more intent last season, we didn't start leaking goals from all directions..
      isn't this exactly what *did* happen

      For me a positive move (all being well). Potter has so far excelled in management. He'll hopefully continue that trend. He'll have to overcome some distinct obstacles. The biggest being changing the style of play. Do we have the players for how he sets his teams up? Can we gain sufficient points whilst making the transition?

      He plays a more mobile, fluid style. Probably keeping the counter attack emphasis but hopefully improving our ball retention and attacking threat. Can our less mobile players fit into this style (we have a few)? It's gonna be fascinating. Onwards and upwards.

      I expected us to kick on a little bit last season especially after being told about this pressing game they'd been practicing in pre-season and the money spent on new players. All that was quickly exposed on day one at Watford. It rarely got any better from then on. So many victories were scrappy affairs and we were very fortunate to survive. With that in mind I have faith that this appointment is a considered one and we might just surprise a few people. If we can watch exciting football along the way I'll be happy.

      If that involves players actually running into spaces to receive passes, then I'm all for it. I got sick of watching our players looking to make a pass and throwing their hands in the air in frustration as everyone else was just static, waiting for the man on the ball to move into space in order to pass to their feet.

      More fitness, more desire to get the ball. If you have the ball, the opposition can't score. Simples.

      Of course we're going to get picked off by the quality teams. That's life. I expect it.

      I'd like to see us show less respect and fear for the other 'teams like Brighton' - especially at home.

      Relegation battle all season. Chris moving on was the right, Potter is a huge gamble for this season, maybe not with a longer timeline. Lasts see, hopefully itís fun and we stay up

      I am optimistic that we will do ok....

      If we can introduce a bit more pace in the side and defend from the front much higher up the pitch then I think we could be a solid mid table side.
      We need to take the games to the opposition and not wait to see what theyíve got before we decide to play. I like what Iíve read up about Potter so far. He could be great acquisition for us.
      We need a goal scorer that will net 15 goals a season with midfielders chipping in with a decent return. As much as GM has been a great striker for us I can only see him playing a bit part next season.
      I believe we have a decent nucleus of a side and with a few intelligent signings we will do ok.

      Iím sure Tony and his team are well aware of whatís needed and will put everything they have into keeping the mighty Albion at the top table.

      Thatís my hope anyway.

      Good points, hard to argue with any of it. We were SHIT at even looking for space, let alone finding it. A massive change in approach was needed, hope we have it coming up.

      Let’s bin the fear of every other team, it was embarrassing and shit to watch. Fear of getting beat was our mantra last season. This came across in the way we played, any confidence in taking the game to the other side was overridden by a complete lack of confidence in being able to do it.

      Get some decent forwards in, we'll be fine.
      Your user name has become spookily precient. It would seem that the answer has suddenly become 'yes'.

      The change of style may be too drastic. We will struggle to adapt in time and probably be relegated. I hope Iím wrong, but thatís my gut feeling. Sorry.
