    There won't be anywhere near 70 million made available for potter for next season. My guess would be 30 million maybe for 1 or 2 players and we'll see some of the so called flops being played and performing. Would not be surprised to having a fairly comfortable 12th/13th place finish

      Exactly and couldn't the same words "brave", "a risk" and "going horribly wrong" have been applied if we had kept the faith with Chris? Don't get me wrong as I have ultimate respect for the man, but things needed to change.
      Yes they did.

      Out went the Manager. Out has gone 4-4-1-1 (one would assume) and staying are the majority of the players.

      But what if 4-4-1-1 was the preferred system and the under performing players were sold?

      Here is an alternative reality........

      TB: What went wrong Chris?

      CH: The club want a 4-3-3 or a 3-4-3 and signed the players for it. I agreed to give it a try because I didnít want to rock the boat but Iíd really like to go back to my 4-4-1-1. Letís get the U23s playing that system too as I canít understand why they continue to play with 3 up front. Iím not going to pick the youngsters if theyíve not been indoctrinated with my style of football.

      TB: What next then Chris?

      CH: We need rid of these forward players who donít fit my 4-4-1-1. Bin off Ali J, Locadia and Andone. I donít really need Bissouma either because I canít trust him.

      TB: O.K. But who do we get in?

      CH: That Oli McBurnie is like a young Glenn Murray, Iíll have him please. As the Argie is stuck in Argie-land, Iíll take Powell as a back up to GroŖ in the 10 position. Give me a winger to replace Ali-J and the now perma-injured Izquierdo and weíll be cooking.

      TB: Where will we finish?

      CH: I guarantee no worse than 15th

      TB: Done! Good luck me old boy! Just one more thing, Iím going to sign Shane Long.

      CH: I resign.

      Who cares. Do people really take these comments seriously.

      Yep, said it another thread.

      We do have a lot of fans with rose tinted glasses.

      When you donít live around Brighton or Sussex, people canít really work out why we have done what we have done.

      You could never be described as a man of few words.
