2 x 3 -0 defeats in a row.

Brighton were the unluckiest team in the prem last year and now they sit in the top 4. Potter is a very likable manager as well :salute

Leicesters bubble might finally have burst?

I like Potter for the sole reason that he is an academic coach, probably the first from England at this level. His appointment shows a desire to finally end the dinosaur era of English football and embrace the sporting tactics more scientifically.

I guess a lot was said about Brighton being unlucky, but I guess if you constantly give away cheap goals or dont put away chances, it says a lot about your quality.

Potter did some interviews in Swedish when managing Ostersunds and it was great listening to him. He made a real effort to fit in. :salute

He seems to be getting a lot of practice.

Spurs seem in real trouble. I could not work out the way they were playing against Arsenal. They did away with their midfield in the first 20 mins. A shadow of the team they were only a few years ago.

Im not sure Nuno knows what he is doing. 9 goals conceded in the last 3 games and at one stage against Arsenal they appeared to have a back 6.

If they continue like this then they might need to look over their shoulders.

I reckon Spurs will be trying to nab Potter from Brighton before long.

Aston Villa beat Manchester United 1-0.

Martinez psyched out Bruno by suggesting that Ronaldo should take the penalty.

the new owners can't buy any players for a while, but they will want to make their mark early, so I reckon Bruce will get the big heave ho sooner rather than later. A shame that Rafa went to Everton this summer, because he would have been a hugely popular choice

Who's the new boss going to be? I heard Chris Wilder's name mentioned. Not a chance!

There must be some unease with some of the supporters over this? Or i would hope there is some.

As bad a person as Ashley seems he really has nothing on the new owners.

I guess when a large amount of clubs are owned by dubious characters, it wont matter too much.
