Graham Potter's team take on Arsenal tonight in the Europa League.
Tough ask for them but hope he does well.

Whatever happens he'll be sought after by, at the very least, a big Championship club in the summer. Very intelligent guy, his interview on BBC website is impressive as is their chairman's. Already look like they've got ridiculous pace with one outlet to break.

Name of speed merchant - Saman Ghoddos. Done Mustafi easily for pace and should have seen the Arsenal CB in the book. Ref gave Arsenal a free kick  :o

Shambles of a second goal. Trying to pass the ball in the 6 yard box...

They've threatened more since conceding it. Looked like a training match at one point/

Did ok but massive gulf in class obviously.
Talks well, seems intelligent and studious. Definitely think we'll see him back on these shores before too long.
Would be a risk for anyone but would be a welcome change from the merry-go-round.

I've said it for a good while now, I'd love us to break the wheel and get somebody in like this in the future. Young manager with passion and a clear vision. Would he get the time in English football though?

Great result for them at the Emirates (despite ultimately being knocked out).

Safe to say I was one of the main advocates banging the drum for us to go and get Potter - Still stand by that and hope we consider him in the future (whether that be sooner or later depending what goes down during the next few weeks/months with our league status etc)

The moment has almost certainly passed for us to hire Potter. His Chairman was fairly scathing about any prospective approach from us and in truth if we are relegated he will have better offers. Although to put his Chairman's comments into context most Championship clubs could probably offer Potter better terms than those he currently enjoys.

Scored for Ostersunds tonight in a Swedish Cup match in a 2-0 win. From the little I've seen of him he does look to have tremendous pace and decent touch, certainly an exciting looking player. He's a 24 year old Iranian, played all his career in Sweden by the look of it.
