My opinion is not uniformed. As I've said MANY times before I watch near enough EVERY Ajax game.

You don't know me matey.
soz, my opinion is uninformed, you must admit tho, you do get a lot of calls wrong, you're not a gambling man i hope

Would like to see all these incorrect calls I've made Vs correct. Probably 50/50. Don't forget I was the one who told NSC that potter was joining Brighton a few days before he did.

Keep digging though !

I strongly suggest you start preparing yourself now, he will go at the end of the season.
I wonder whether Potter might be holding out for De Zerbi to move on, and then stage a comeback. He could easily see out this season without a club.
Note: I don't really think this will happen. But I'd be ok with Potter coming back.

It will take an idiot or someone with massive balls to want to take us on after De Zerbi.

yeah you're not wrong. I think collectively as a fanbase we're going to have to prepare ourselves for some mediocrity/struggles after he goes. I guess we just enjoy it while it lasts.

Please god NO....

Never go back, he has proven he will jump ship, I did not appreciate his history lesson comments, and to be honest I always found him dull, at times he looked like a rabbit in headlights. Besides all that, it would probably mean Swansman would return.......

Blimey. There's a LOT of people still butt-hurt by Potter. Get over yourselves, he did a great job, he left us in FOURTH position FFS. Of course he thought we could compete with the big boys, and we were scoring goals left, right and centre when he left. Who knows where we could have ended up if he stayed, we just don't know how far he could have taken us, I like to think we would have still made Europa League under his tenure.

RDZ would never have come to us without Potter's influence on the team and style of football we were playing.

Personally, for the majority of fans on here who should know better, you're all acting like your 16, still pining over your first love who dumped you.
Not at all, I am glad he gone and don't want him anywhere near this club again or his money grabbing backroom staff.

Potter would not have got us into Europe, we all knew the bubble would burst sitting fourth at the time he left, we all knew that we would go on a run of 5 or 6 games without a win or even a goal. Good coach yeah, some good ideas yeah, some brave tactics, meh.....
He was not the messiah, he was part of our evolution and not his brainchild either, he did a job to get us to the next level, we are here now, and we should thank him, but high praise and rose tinted glasses, no.

We had really hit our stride and to be fair to Potter, I think we would have been between 6th and 8th but what's 100% certain is that we would not have scored the number of goals we did, have as much fun as we did and have as bright a future as we do under RDZ. Credit where it's due to Potter, he built the foundations and RDZ has elevated it beyond belief.

I’m not sure that’s how RDZ is measured.
And there was me thinking this was about Potter :rolleyes:

I know you have always been anti, so I can’t blame you for a certain amount of schadenfreude at how badly it has gone for him.

Only a fool would argue that RDZ isn’t a big upgrade….but would he have even considered coming here if Potter hadn’t laid the foundations?

And I think this is the elephant in the room for Potter lovers. I do admire Potter and am grateful to him, but those results at home made my Albion mojo the lowest it has been probably ever and were it not for the time spent with my sons and brother, I would perhaps have given up my season ticket. Bad fan eh.
Love how we are all so different, makes this place so much more interesting.

Replace Potter with Hughton‘s last six months in your comments and that’s me :lolol:

The anti football and stinking the division out with it was the very worst football experience for me in all the time I’ve followed the Albion. Yes, worse than the war years imo

Potter would not have got us into Europe
If only two results in 21/22 had changed . (Draws at Leicester and West Ham being converted to wins) - we'd have finished 7th.
RDZ wouldn't have qualified for Europe last season with his results after gameweek 6 - without the 13 points that Potter had racked up before he left. I think we were 8th with all the results post gameweek 6.

If's and but's as we both know, If RDZ had pre season with the squad, we may have been looking at Champions League !
If's and but's....

I know, and you know Potters team went long periods of poor frustrating football, and that was because he was cautious, when we were crying out for people to get in the box and be brave, RDZ proved that in his first game with the same squad 3 goals at Liverpool, Potter would have gone there, with a defensive mindset.

I don’t like these bold, controversial statements, free of any evidence or any reasoning. So lazy. Even a simple 'IMO' would help.

Laid the foundations - Cashworth had him running scared
Same as Potter laid the foundations - but he was Cashworth's man so didn't get the tintack

Potter's time at the Albion was flawed to say the least - who is arguing with that - but who knows whether he would have got us into Europe or not.
He was still a good coach and had a great squad (very different to RDZ) and missed it by points the previous season - its more of a stretch to argue that he wouldn't have done than to argue he would.
