I think that would depend on the position, if Brighton were in the position that Sunderland are in currently, I personally think he would stand by him as he has a proven track record in the championship to go up again.
However would it be different if they were in Boro's position?
They should get Pardew in with McClaren as DoF.
Then I'd get to see the perfect denouement to an enjoyable season; Newcastle promoted, Pardew, McClaren, Boro, Sunderland, Allardyce and Palace all relegated.
This is the one thing we didn't want to happen.
