    Trig - if you read the poll question more carefully it says “How do you feel AFTER the sacking of Chris Hughton and the appointment of Graham Potter” - so having answered this specific question I think my response is justified (and it is you who has mis-read the question) so those other managers I mentioned do come into it.
    Well I commend you for having a go. The last thing I want is for people to feel that they can't at least have a go

    So it's “How do you feel AFTER the sacking of Chris Hughton and the appointment of Graham Potter”, compared to BEFORE the sacking of Chris Hughton and the appointment of Graham Potter.

    BEFORE the sacking of Chris, you weren't worried about ending up with the likes of Mark Hughes, Sam Allardyce, Tony Pulis etc were you.
    Thank you Chris, you're a legend.

      Why should we expect anything radically different unless there is a massive splurge in expensive SINGINGS?
      It depends, I just thought that our strong holding of shape actually restricted us, so we'll have to see what the new manager does. He could unleash the hounds and give the team more confidence. I'm sure there will be new SINGINGS..

      Much happier and put $20 on to end up in top half of division at 11/2 odds.

      Are you joining a Karaoke club?


      What exactly is a Karaoke Club? Some kind of place where Japanese business men meet women and sing to Korean pop music ?

      Still not happy as such.
      I appreciate every concern about the last 3 month's of CH's tenure, but the bloke delivered everything he said he would.
      I can't help but feel he has been badly treated and that doesn't sit well with me.

      Equally It's clear that something had to change.
      I'm very glad that having made the call to sack Chris, the club have acted decisively and have set a clear direction for next season.
      Tony Bloom is a gambler, but he is also an incredibly shrewd man.
      There is a reasonably good chance that this will pay off.

      In Bloom we trust!
      Up the Albion!

      Overall I think it is a positive appointment, but not without risk - which I'm sure Tony has carefully considered. I don't think carrying on with CH was an option as I don't think we were likely to progress. So the first half of the equation, letting Chris go, was, I think, correctly managed.The second half, the replacement, is tougher. Potter seems to tick the boxes of progressive thinking, different tactics, keen to develop young players etc. Question is, does he have the experience for the Premier League, and can the bulk of the current squad, who he must work with adapt? I think he will be asking a lot of players who have been drilled by Chris to play a certain way, to adopt new tactics, which could be a big challenge. Will D & D's heroic defending/last ditch blocks be so effective if the team has pushed further up field, can Stephens adapt to a more expressive style? Or had Chris determined that his set up was the best style for the resources available?
      Time, as they say, will tell.
      I think Ashworth has been instrumental in this change, and is, arguably, the more significant appointment.

      Task 1 - get something positive out of Locadia, Jahanbakhsh and Andone
      2 - Introduce some of the U23 squad into the first team so that TB hasn't wasted millions on the academy
      3 - we already have 2 new signings in Argentina and Romania

      If he can get that lot to work we have 7 or 8 'new' first team players at no cost
      3 - That's Mac Allister and Baluta. Don't forget Jan Mlakar from Slovenia !
      Out of contract June 2020 : Bong, Balogun, Kayal, Murray, Schelotto, Ahannach
