Be interesting what would happen to Eddie Howe if Bournemouth were to have a poor first half of the season. I get the feeling they've sort of hit a ceiling, they're not little Bournemouth anymore. Of course their football's attacking but it's also wildly inconsistent

I mentioned the spending to my pal, and they reckon the prices quoted in the press are absolute horse-**** and nowhere near that, so just passing that on.

I heard the other day, some of the Brighton players approached him wanting to play a more open, expansive
game, but he refused. In the circumstances, probably mindful of the repercussions had that failed, I make him right on that front. He furthermore considered, where Brighton were when he took over, facing the very real prospect of relegation to League 1, he took largely the same crop of players from there to respectability in the Premier League in just two seasons and I suspect he considered he did not have the players to play more attractive football. What I do find interesting is, having fired him, the Brighton board are now on the cusp of making a similar appointment in Swansea's Graham Potter, currently the manager of another mid table Championship club. Who I do think would do a good job for them is another ex Swansea manager and whom I believe is still out of work and that is Carlos Carbajal. The geezer does like to play a more open, attractive game and that will keep the Brighton fans onside

I cannot understand why Brighton want the manager of a mid table Championship side to replace Hughton. This does not seem to make sense.
