I saw someone on twitter ask skybet for odds on Tim Walter being Boro boss about 2 weeks ago

 

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?

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?

    • Not really one to share info but been told tonight there is definite interest in Gibson and both parties want it to happen. This information is from the same guy that told me about Ste Walker starting against Stoke which I posted about in the matchday thread a good few days before. As I say just passing on information but makes it more interesting after Woody’s BBC Tees interview. 
    • Just got back (found a nice pub after the game). Eerily similar to the spurs game earlier in the week. Preposterous first half full of errors, lying deep and conceding the midfield. Second half was end to end. Boro supporters in full voice, home fans mustering little. Roberts was excellent, he didn't stop running. Fulham looked dead good though, It took us a full half until we could scare them. I'd like to think a draw would have been fair but I think Fulham were just better (and so they should be). Onwards and upwards.
    • I always thought Reece Oxford was a DM? I swear that’s when he played in that game against arsenal.
    • Woodgate also said that he would have loved to have played a back 4 tonight obviously couldn’t since we only have 1 for centre half.    Personally think Woody wants to go back to the original plan of 4-3-3 as soon as he possibly can.
