Credit to the club trying to keep hold of him. Could it possibly be him trying to get assurances from the board on how this summer will play out before turning Brighton down?

Clinging on to anything at the moment. Another manager change would be a disaster at this stage imo.

If he does go, then the next manager we have that comes over kissing the badge/fist pumping/shouting you Jack b@stards (We've now had a few)....it's gonna take a big effort not to jump on the turf telling him go fck himself.

Alright lads.

Popped on to read up on Potter as I admittedly knew sod all about him but whilst I’m here I thought I’d reply to a few things.

Hughton was sacked for two reason. Our abysmal form in 2019 and the atrocious anti-football we were playing. We won 3 of our last 23 games, went 11 hours without scoring and managed 4 shots on target in 6 games at one point. We took 0 points off Cardiff, 1 off Fulham & 0 Saints too, so we couldn’t even compete with the teams directly around us. Our home form which kept us up last year also fell apart, including a 5-0 loss to Bournemouth.

My main gripe though is the fact that we have excellent technical payers who are being completely misused. Playmakers who have been turned in to crabs who don’t leave our half. Strikers forced out to the wings. Wingers basically being second fullbacks. There’s a lot of rumours of players asking to attack more. Turning us in to a possession based attacking team wouldn’t be quite the overhaul it appears from the outside.

I feel a manager like Potter who wants to play good, attacking football will be backed; both financially and time wise if things don’t start well. The whole club is working towards being able to produce and develop young players so I feel even if we went down there could be a chance he kept his job if there was promising signs elsewhere. Our youth team is improving year on year, finishing 3rd in PL2 this year. Despite this Hughton wouldn’t give any of our young players a chance, another mark against him that isn’t visible from the outside. We couldn’t score a goal for love nor money, and he still completely ignored the top scorer in the U-23’s league and a lad who already has goals internationally for Sweden’s first team because he was too stubborn to change. The miracles Potter has worked with some of your youngsters is another massive bonus for us if it comes off.

We also signed a bloke called Dan Ashworth as our Director of Football. He’s given a lot of praise for his work with England, where he was the brains behind England DNA which is credited as the reason for England cleaning up at youth level over the last couple of years. Seeming he was linked with Man.U just before we signed him it’s been seen as a massive result for us. We’ve already made an eight figure bid for Reece James at Chelsea, which clearly has Ashworth all over it. Potter & Ashworth working together could be an absolute winner.

I do genuinely think that Potter is the right man for us after reading a lot about him on here and other forums. I just hope that if it happens we fairly compensate you. You’ve been on a similar journey to us over the last 20 years so it’s horrible to see bellends who clearly don’t care about the club completely dismantle all the good work you’d done. Hopefully you sign Hughton if we get Potter, despite all his flaws he’s an excellent manager at Championship level, and I much prefer Swansea to a lot of the other teams with play-off aspirations in the Championship


They may want to give him time. But when push comes to shove, having made their sums about the catastrophic impact of a return to the Championship, they'll soon think differently, and lofty goals of good attacking football will be cast aside and pragmatism will take over. Their fingers will become itchy and they'll take any old fool playing any kind of hoofball if they think it'll give them a chance to avoid te financial abyss of relegation.

I you don't go down next season, (probably Sotons turn next) then it will be the season after. No one ever re-boots once caught in the drain water.

This statement from Bloom says it all about how much time Potter will get: "Our run of three wins from 23 Premier League matches put our status at significant risk. It is with that in mind, and the performances during that period, that I now feel it's the right time for a change."

If Bloom was serious about the long term he wouldn't put so much emphasis on the "status at significant risk" bit. He let the cat out of the bag there - and Potter should realise that any poor run of form will see him out of the door. The Premier League does strange things to club owners and chairmen, as we know only too well - all rationality goes out of the window and it's all about staying in the league at whatever cost to footballing principles or the long-term viability of the club (Portsmouth and Bolton fans can no doubt vouch for that). I see nothing to suggest Bloom is any less short term in his approach than the rest.

Update: "Albion remain confident of bringing in Potter and his coaching staff, despite having an initial approach knocked back. The process of securing clearance to open negotiations with Potter has been left in a holding pattern by the fact Swansea’s joint owners are on opposite coasts of the USA, one in Los Angeles."

Potter talks continue
Right then.

We’ve now got an update on Graham Potter’s future...

Swansea City remain in talks with the Englishman amid the ongoing interest from Brighton.

The Seagulls made Potter their No. 1 target after making the bold call to sack Chris Hughton on Monday morning.

They have already had an approach to speak with Potter turned down by Swansea, although Brighton are expected to up their efforts to take the 43-year-old to the Amex Stadium. It is believed there has been no official follow-up approach from the Seagulls.

Swansea held lengthy talks with Potter on Wednesday, and it’s understood that discussions between the club and their manager remain ongoing.

It is understood that Potter - who during the course of the 2018/19 campaign has repeatedly stated that he views the job in SA1 as a long-term project - is seeking assurances over what the future holds at the club.

He has endured two difficult transfer windows at the Liberty Stadium to date, with no fewer than 19 players departing while only six have been recruited.

If Potter wants assurances to stay he is gone.
The compensation will be the stumbling block.

No way Potter will back the Yanks into a corner.

If he goes, we know exactly what the plans are.

He’s not backing them into a corner, he’s most likely just asking if there’s another big sell off will he have the the backing to bring a few in. As the article says, 19 out, 6 in, it’s not sustainable.

That’s the negative way to look at it. The positive way is to think that Potter likes it here, isn’t convinced about Brighton and the owners are going to give him a budget to have a crack at promotion. That’s overly optimistic perhaps but not beyond the realms of possibility.

Pretty sure Matt Clarke has piqued interest. Could be cheaper CB option to bring in than Carter-Vickers. Still young at 22 as well.

WalesOnline understands that the pair's attendance was due to a pre-planned scouting mission, and has nothing to do with any interest in his services from elsewhere.


It's not clear if Potter was there to watch any particular players, although it could well have been Pompey defender Matt Clarke, who's already reportedly attracting interest from Championship duo Leeds United and
