He does seem a really good fit for us !
I’m not sure about Potter, never go back it almost certainly never works and this morning Andy Naylor said he might ( MIGHT ) have already turned us down anyway.
I think there would be too many idiots not thinking along football terms if he came back but just along the cry baby terms of “ Waaaaa waaaaa you left us for Chelsea your shit, your a wanker “ etc etc
Forgetting what a bloody good job he did do for us and left us in 7th place I believe.
I’m not sure about having him back purely on what I said at the beginning of this waffle. Lampard at Chelsea, Mourhino at Chelsea other clubs have done the same but I can’t think off hand of any, where it’s worked the second time.
The term Potter Ball was just ridiculous.
Anyway I’m pretty sure it won’t be him I’m putting my money on Vincenzo Italiano or Steve Cooper.
Now some might think he’s a crap manager well tell that to Bayern Munich about Vincent Kompany.
Relegated with Burnley but one of the biggest clubs in the world want him.
Let’s face it he did well considering what he had at Burnley player wise.
He’ll become another Guardiola he’s got the funds now and a team full of stars that will have the utmost respect for him too.
Steve Cooper I would love to have at Brighton, a very very knowledgeable manager has coached with England, highly respected throughout the game, and will have, far better players to utilise plus a sizeable ‘ war chest ‘ if what Mr Bloom said a few months ago is still gonna happen. I think his very carefully chosen words were something like when interviewed
“ we will have a fairly sizeable amount of money to make our necessary signings with this Summer, but we won’t be throwing it about like some clubs “
That is why I love that man so much he will never ever let happen to us what did before.
Now Adam The Llama 🦙 has gone that’s £92K a week saved,and a small fortune saved too now that Fati has gone.
He never got a chance,injured nearly the whole time.
But we have completely new medical staff now a Dr/Professor Florian Pfab is head of medicine and some of his team are experts on muscle, ligament and tendon damage in Sports, and an American Dr Gary Walker head of sporting performance.
Should hopefully give us a decent almost injury free season after last seasons absolute medical disasters.
It does seem as if Italiano is off to Bologna. ( shame as I too think he’d be a good fit).
I think Steve Cooper is surely someone we’ve talked to and can see him being favourite now that Potter seems to fancy himself as Southgate’s successor.
The only other one I can see as a possible outsider is Jacob Neestrup of Copenhagen. Champions League experience, young, ambitious and possibly open to a move to the Premier League. His team’s style of play also has some similarities to RDZ. I think of all the candidates, Neestrup would be the one I’d like most.

I work for a danish company and here at the moment. None of them are bothered if he leaves!

I agree, the Italian looks to be a fit, I absolutely dont think Cooper is the image that Bloom and Barber is looking for, Potter can just do one.

If Cooper was the choice, he'd be the manager by now. Not happening.
Apparently Italiano is taking a little time to consider his options (according to someone on twitter, so yeah... pinch of salt with that). If he is a genuine target I wouldn't rule out us gazumping Bologna on this one.

Yet another possible link to the club is Vincenzo Italiano as he has left Fiorentina and is now in talks with a mystery
Premier League club.
Was told this by my mate this morning.
Not seen it anywhere at all myself not even by that wasiss chops on X.
Well we know it’s not Chelsea, City, Spurs, West Ham, Arsenal or Liverpool which leaves possibly UTD if they sack Ten Hag but I think they’re much to big a club for him and it will end up like a Graham Potter scenario. So the only other decent club left looking for a Manager is US I think, unless Utd do sack Hag which in my opinion would be extremely foolish, but not quite as certifiable as Chelsea having 23 or 24 ( can’t remember) managers since 2000 BONKERS !
This Italiano chap apparently knows RDZ too.
He’s done well at Fiorentina got them to 8th place in Serie A, two Europa Conference League Finals and the Copa Italiano Final , but sadly winning none of them.
I think he may just be the man for us if my mate is correct.
He does get some good tips sometimes.
Blimey my first post for years and years on here I must be f*****g bored ! 🥱 🤣🤣🤣🤣❤️
Also has a GK named Tony Tagliatelle.
Mindfulness coach named Pasta Presente.
Physiotherapist named Micky Muscles .
