Said someone in the know told him he was having talks with the club

Graham Potter set to become Brighton's manager.

 

His name has been consistently mentioned on here, hasn't it?

Think he was mentioned as a want before he went to Swansea. Cant remember any links though.

Another club to compete with for a new manager. Think it's a big risk for Potter and Brighton tbh.

Had a few drinks with my source last night and only got a small update... interviews begin on Tuesday but being held in London by Kenyon and Gibson. 8 has now become 6...2 priced themselves out. Doesn’t expect announcement until first week of June. We defo don’t have much to spend on players... he said he wouldn’t be surprised to see a lot of the older guard moved on... club wants a complete reshape. Gibson has realised to many players have been at our club for a payday. In terms of names... told we are after a foreign coach if possible but was also told woodgate is also high in SG thinking. Will add more into the transfers page as bits and pieces on that as well

No mate he was honest to say he can’t guarantee names are correct so would rather not say anything until he has something concrete

Interesting stuff. It sounds like the process used for AK. Actually assessing the candidates and their ability and interest in Boro. Expect loads of PowerPoints explaining why Randolph, Fry, Wing and Tav must not be sold.

 

Re people pricing themselves out I imagine they may include Arteta, unlikely to be Cowley, Walter.

 

So are we talking

 

Cowley

Walter

Woodgate

Karanka

who’s the other two?

Hughton, forgot him. Would Jokanovic be in the too expensive list?

Apparently Stoke wouldn’t pay Jokanovic’s wage demands so no way we would

The Dutch options Reizeiger and GVB would hardly be in the too expensive bracket?

I thought Reizeiger was getting promoted at Ajax. Just speculating In my head. Happy for names to be added removed. I wonder if we can get a consensus by the end of the day?

 

Kompany now he’s left City?

    • If this is live on TV I may be able to watch it on my flight home. At least the fact that I am traveling home will offset the disappointment of a damn good thrashing. 😀
    • I echo most views on here. Expect to loose this one though would be happy enough with a draw.  Just hope we put up a fight and the youngsters shine again. Forrest have the 2nd meanest defense in the league at home so I can't see us scoring. But here's hoping. Head - 2-0 to Forrest. Heart - 1 - 0 to Boro. Walker (if selected) to get off the mark as he is too young to know the city ground jinx effect.
    • We had some impressive results and performances in that PL season against Top 10 teams with a net spend of 17m (De Roon making up the majority of this net with a 13m fee). The whole club were not invested in the project and a few individuals in the background were working against AK. Imagine the difference if we were able to add to the squad with some of the names linked below in 2016/17: Lukas Rupp (signed for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) Aissa Mandi (signed for Real Betis)  Dennis Praet (signed for Sampdoria) James Morrison (signed a contract extension at West Brom) Michail Antonio (signed a contract extension with West Ham) Clément Grenier  Clement Chantome (signed for Stade Rennais) Hakim Ziyech Domagoj Vida  Tim Krul Khouma Babacar Thomas Meunier (signed for PSG) Neven Subotic (deal fell through after failed medical) Harry Maguire Enzo Fernández Gerard Deulofeu Fernando Llorente (signed for Swansea)  Tomas Kalas (signed for Fulham)  Laurent Depoitre Jefferson Montero Alvaro Arbeloa (signed for West Ham)  Denis Cheryshev Rachid Ghezzal Filip Djordjevic Kenneth Vermeer Jon Walters Cheick Tiote Henri Bedimo Rachid Ghezzal Gökhan Gönül Keiren Westwood Pepe Reina Martin Skrtel (signed for Fenerbahçe)  Cameron Jerome Sergi Samper Ryan Bennett Cristi Săpunaru Mike van der Hoorn (signed for Swansea) Blerim Džemaili Lee Cattermole Matt Philips (signed for West Brom) Chris Gunter Ramadel Falcao Matz Sels (signed for Newcastle) Vincent Aboubakar Martin Caceres Nicolai Jorgensen Santiago Arias Tomáš Necid Jeff Hendrick (signed for Burnley) Robin Van Persie Demarai Grey Filip Helander Yakou Meite (signed for Reading) Andre Ayew Wesley Hoedt
    • Usually 15% of capacity unless the police decide otherwise. So should be around 5200 - dependent on the layout of the stadium.  Our official (dry) coaches are departing at 5.20am!
