Good thing Norwich didn’t worry about whether Farke had evidence he could manage at the Championship level. 

Potter’s Ostersund team beat Arsenal and Galatasary in the Europa League so he’s had more experience at that level than Farke...

Think he’ll be fine and Brighton will be much improved next season.

If Potter follows Farke's precedent then Brighton will probably struggle initially before coming good in the second season. They might well finish below us in their transition period.

He will have to change a culture instigated by Hughton - and that will not be easy in the pressure cooker of the PL.  Imo he will struggle to get his ways across in time to make enough of a difference.  The Brighton players will have to adapt to quick passing football not so easy as Swansea found this season - so the club will be in transition next season and as such will quite likely struggle.

Its not the europa league that he'll be operating in....and farke has also faced arsenal

I'm sure we'll be a side Brighton will be looking to finish above too

At least they’ve got a far more exciting manager now though 👍🏻

Maybe, but if they get relegated as a result of having to change the way they play it may not be worth it.......

Good appointment for them. They'll play better football so the fans will be happier. Should they go down which I think they would of been nailed on to do under Hughton anyway, they'll be well placed to come straight back up.

Good appointment all round, he improved Swansea's style of play substantially - can see him doing a good job if the squad buy into it.

Feel sorry for Swansea fans, I think they could have done well next season, now they have to start again.

To be fair you could say the same about Daniel Farke, Chris Wilder and Frank Lambard or Dean Smith but I'll bet my bottom dollar they'll all be given the chance to find out.
