Wise words!I must say I’m surprised. Potter is a very clever man with a huge understanding of sports psychology and exchanging the calm onward trajectory of the Albion for the ghastly bearpit of Chelsea is an unlikely choice for me, even given the extra rewards.
The ‘top six’ will be a different and perhaps difficult challenge for him. He is a genius at masterminding football subversion: trying to impose his vision on one of the perennial entitled fat playground bullies is very different to plotting a route for the clever new kid outsider.
We are a very well run club with a five year plan and an incredible scouting system, and surviving our best players, manager and backroom staff being cherrypicked, with aplomb, is the best response to this contemptible heist.
Cheerio Potter, go and join Cucurella, White and Bissouma on the gravy train. Our next manager will be someone else you haven’t heard of, and he’ll be brilliant.
It is, of course, completely ridiculous that this tedious ‘big club/small club’ scenario exists, especially since Brighton is a far more interesting place than Chelsea, but there you go. Modern football is bollocks, but it's our bollocks, and we carry on.
25 years ago bottom of the League with no ground. Now supremely adaptable and ready for anything. A just reward for all the years we fought for the existence of our club. Onwards.
(The other response was: I loathe modern football, that's the last straw. But Archer couldn't kill my love of the Albion,and modern football won't either, so optimism is the only option!)
