Didn't matter.  They were already safe

Only just as it turns out, very lucky Cardiff didn't win a couple of more matches in the run in, would have been interesting had relegation issues gone to the last day, but alas Cardiff were shitter than Brighton were.

Should shout at Villas-Boas, heard he's doing next to shite all these days.

Last time I went there I saw masturbating chimpanzees. Whether you think that's worthy of £22 is up to you. All I'll say is I now have an annual pass.

Yes since they have experienced The Meg, Tone, and Supa-Al in living memory,  Hughton's snoozeball wont seem too bad.

I think it is right for Brighton: young town, young club, young chairman, young manager.

CH was always incongruous.

I expect young players!

Potter is a complete left-field choice, but one that could work really well. He's done fantastic at Swansea with limited resource. I'm not sure how good he is in the transfer market, but he knows how to get players that believe in him playing for him.

At least Brighton are trying something different than going for the tried, tested and failed approach. Potter is a good manager. I'll be interested to see how he does in the Premier League.

Saw his press conference earlier, and also checking up on him, seems an interesting choice. Took the hard route up compared to ex pros with bigger reputations, supposedly plays positive, possession football, and this coaches' voice segment was nice. Obviously any coach can say the right things on a tactics board but it was interesting nonetheless.

Be great to see more English coaches like this, driven, capable of making a name for themselves in other leagues.

Hope he does well. Anyone who serves their apprenticeship working with the lesser lights deserves their chance at the top level, whether it works out for them or not.

Edit - also let me add, LOVE a coach who plays an out-and-out 3-4-3 ;D
Better looking than Samie.

Everyone here should watch that video. He constantly references the fundamentals of the game as the basis of tactics, and speaks about the traditional roles the way they have always been played (which is important to know when you talk about our team, because our team plays in a non-traditional way).

How will the younger manager's do?  Potter 44, Rodgers 46, Solskjær 46, Eddie Howe 41, Silva 41, Santo 45

Love the videos on that channel,  just found it.  Almost soothing listening to Pako talk about Santi Mina and Rodrigo's movements as they beat Barcelona....

The next step is to get Valverde on to explain what they didn't do in the slaughter at Anfield.  Porn sells.

Is he?  His was the first name I heard talked about for the job but that could be just a weird coincidence I guess!

Betting odds suggested the fix was in before CH was sacked.

It took just a cursory knowledge of what Brighton were doing to know Houghton was going to be sacked.
