      I wonder whether Bloom would have stuck by Hughton had we got promoted last season and were in the position Middlesborough are in now. I think he would, as Chris is a decent, straightforward character. The same goes for Tony Bloom. Thankfully integrity can overpower money sometimes.


      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.

      We might find out in the not too distant future. Then again we might steamroller the league from the off IF we go up. IF.

      I think next year will be tougher to stay up than this year as the sides in the bottom are rubbish this year, it will be intesresting to see.

      As normal it just depends who the promoted teams bring in.

      Not sure it would, to be honest. The big difference seems to be that Karanka is prone to moaning, whether it be about players, the club or whatever. Hughton just gets on with his job. I don't think anybody could criticise Steve Gibson as an employer; in fact he seems very similar to Tony Bloom. Pretty sure that if Hughton rather than Karanka had got Boro to this position, Gibson would stick with him, and I would expect the same to be true of Tony Bloom.
      This is the one thing we didn't want to happen.

      Agree. Like him or loathe him, Sean Dyche is a good example of what can be achieved by letting someone build for the longer term, rather than staying up in the first season at all costs.

      I hope they go for Wagner
      No way will he leave Huddersfield at the moment. Hodgson perhaps?

      While it is getting MASSIVELY ahead of myself, I can see myself getting very annoyed at how some of our support (particularly newer-comers) would react if we go up and then struggle in the Prem under Hughton. I would like us to give him the time and support Burnley have given Dyche.
