Brighton boss Gus Poyet could be set to leave the South coast surprisingly after he told the board he would like to move to Ivory Coast international team. The Africans have made an approach to the former Chelsea player to be their new boss and he could sign as soon as Tuesday.

firstly i am a rangers supporter till i die but seen this on another site and even i had to laugh a little bit.

Due to Whytes cost cutting, the kick off between the Rangers, Celtic game on sunday is not going to be decided between the toss of a coin, its going to be decided by rock,scissors,papper.

I am an arsenal fan and just wanted to let you know that we have 5 of our best players back from injury and suspension tomorrow.They are gervinho/sagna/gibbs/song and frimpong,we are a much better team with these players in it so if you think you will have it easy you can forget it.Also when we had our big defeat at man utd we had 7 players missing including wilshire and vermaelen.When we get these back we will shoot up the table.

Believable0 Unbelievable2

Thanks for letin us know,i will be able to sleep 2nite now

Agree1 Disagree0

Vermaelen, Wilshere, Walcott, Gibbs & RvP are permanent sick notes. Does it matter?

You will finish 6th this season. Sorry mate.

Agree1 Disagree0

Footballs a squad game bud,and its obvious your squad aint nowhere near good enough.

Agree1 Disagree0

Thanks for that then, did you bother to tell Blackburn coz they obviously did'nt believe you did they?

Following some recent posts on here - Poyet has been allowed to enter talks with a Thai consortium; could this be the Leicester link?

manchester united to get their own sugar daddy??,a sugar daddy who's wealth dwarfs that of roman and is superior to that of mansour over at city,cant imagine what this would do to football,they already are the biggest club by miles,worth more,make more money than anyone you care to think of,now they may have billions to spend,if it happens then it could kill footie,its not a good thing,the whole chelsea,man city thing is not good for footie,yes i know their fans love it,they got success bought for them but it does come with a price,higher player wages means higher ticket prices,higher sky subscription,players are constantly moving to another club in search of higher wages,not good at all.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

Nice try, you do know just how much debt Manchester Utd are in don't you? They may have a massive turnover, and may have just reported record profits, but those profits will go to paying a portion of the £300m plus debt they have on the books...

Agree0 Disagree0

But when the club are worth £1.5 billion £300 million to pay off the debt doesn't really come into it.

plus the glaziers have paid off the worst debt and plan to pay it all off. people who think united are skint are living in a dream world.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ahh so that's how it works eh? Why is it a book debt if they're able to pay it off in one go then? Why are they paying millions in interest if they're able to pay it off? Real Madrid are skint too, it's common knowledge. Both clubs are literally on a knife edge, they both seem far too big to go under but it's closer than you might think in real terms. The markets wobble, the share price is ruined and BOOM seeya!

Agree0 Disagree0

A man who lives in a house worth £1.5b with a mortgage of £300m who can afford the montly payments not a poor man.

do you not think the glaziers would sell for double what they paid if they thought there was a chance of going bust?

there would be plenty of potential buyers. we've been bearing this rubbish for years, 5 years actually and won the title 4 times and continued to keep buying players when needed. keep dreaming.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cool, in that case i'll consider myself told then, you're obviously a financial guru with his finger on the pulse of the economy and those foolish people on the money show clearly got it wrong when they produced a financial model of Utd before and after a stock market crash. Good stuff, i'm off to do some more dreaming then, cheers.

Whats wrong with actually enjoying football for a change. Saints and Brighton are enjoying their purple patches after several seasons of misery. There is quite alot of know it alls here who never thought either of our teams would have the impact we have had so far. Go the South!

Believable2 Unbelievable0

Good start for Brighton and Southampton but the Championship is tough, 46 games not 6 decide who gets promoted or in the play-offs, plenty of teams have been top at this time of year and not got promoted, Cardiff springs to mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have no vested interest here but fair play to Brighton and Southampton I hope they have continued success. Teams that start a Chamionship season well are invariable competitive at the end.
