I WASN’T sur­prised to see Os­car Gar­cia re­sign as Brighton man­ager. I think he was the wrong ap­point­ment from the start.

For a for­eign man­ager, who knows mainly over­seas play­ers, it’s hard to get to grips with the Cham­pi­onship.

Os­car did a com­mend­able job but I think Brighton want to blood some of their academy prod­ucts and for­eign man­agers gen­er­ally find it very dif­fi­cult to go down that route. They want to bring in lads from abroad.

That would be wrong at Brighton, who’ve in­vested in some very tal­ented young kids over the last few years – lads like Ro­han Ince and Chris­tian Wal­ton, the young keeper from Ply­mouth who is a great prospect.

If they put their trust in those play­ers, they’ll be a club to be reck­oned with in the next few years.

Which is why I hope now that Tim Sher­wood gets it. It would be a great job for Tim.

It’s a club he could re­ally get his teeth into, a well-run oper­a­tion with a chair­man who’d give him plenty of sup­port.

They’re go­ing about it the right way and Tim, who did a great job with the youth team at Spurs, would be a per­fect fit. I could see him be­ing there for a num­ber of years.
