Well who would have thought these 2 would be favorites for the job a month ago ?

When West Ham get rid of Bilic do you think they'll be looking at Hodgson or Stuart Pearce?

I know I'm alone and probably mad, but I think Roy could work.

Benitez.

But really, which manager with any pedigree who isn't 70 would be interested?

Hodgson is a very good club manager.

I feel very sorry for Frank. I've always supported SP but it's only natural to start to wonder what's going on in the background. I do wonder how much he lets the manager manage and how much the players or certain players have his ear.

It's a pretty sad day for the club as well as Frank.

Better than both Roy or Freedman and would wind the Brighton fans up if he does well .

Allardyce has to be number 1 target.

Would have Pardew back over most of the other options available.

Guus Hiddink until the end of the season otherwise

Yes but what is your point? ;)

Managed 529, Won 236, Drawn 131, Lost 162 win % at 45%, his lowest at any club after Bristol City is 35%.

We will do ok under Roy i think, but where is the future going?

Well when we decided to appoint a young manager and planned to change the entire philosophy of the club... it only lasts 78 days.

Might as well appoint a 71 year old for the season and actually spend time creating a viable succession plan for next season. Maybe get a young number 2 in to learn the ropes, the club and the politics to step up next summer?

I would rather the new Manager sells Beneteke in January and buy 2 strikers . 35 crosses into box yesterday and he failed to score , 6hrs of open play and no goals , The player has had his chance and not delivered , We can not afford the luxury of a striker who can only head a goal and offers little else .
I would rather play the youngster we brought on yesterday .

Hodgson with Freedman trained as his long-term successor (Early 2018).

I don't think Pards would come back, to be honest - the training was too boring.

Would have Pardew back over most of the other options available.

Roy Hodgson,at 70,would be a Backward Step.

Behave Greedman went to a 'bigger club' ( tbf they was only 140 mill in debt then)then grasses us up. Hodgson 7/8 years ago 100 yes but not now. Still can't get over Iceland defeat and Kane taking corners wtf.

We are a bigger shambles than when he joined first time, and he had an extra 40 million to spend then, he'll have **** all in January this time.

Sir Steve Coppell to return on a white horse and restore my faith in modern football with Sammy Lee as his number 2.

Failing that, Hodgson. Might have enough about him to get a tune out of them.

So if we have tried young managers and experienced firefighter and have had no long term success it probably doesn't matter that Hodgson is 70, can do a couple of years and we will either sack him or he will be successful in which case why not keep him?

BFS won't happen, even if he was here longer term it was never a match made. Can't believe it seems he was never even consulted on who should take over? Especially if there were 30 odd candidates, how did we end up with Frank the Farmer!

Sadly it seems Roy is now the fit, albeit uninspiring. Don't see we'll make the next steps forward without a prior relegation anyway!
