    Yes, for sure. He didn't fail at Newcastle and Norwich in the prem - he was unfairly/harshly sacked in both cases. Neither of those clubs are any better for it. Newcastle have Benitez now ffs, and have spent shitloads more than us, and theyre currently sat on level pegging with us.

      Should Chris Hughton be given a full season even it it means relegation ?

      Should we be different from the others and show hope and loyalty ?
      It's nothing to do with 'loyalty'. He's a brilliant manager. We've conceded 29 goals. That's one less than Arsenal and less than everyone else outside the top 7 - with the majority of the team coming up from Div. 2.

      We all know we haven't got the ways and means of scoring a shedload, and that's why we're where we are in the table. Let's get a couple of goalscorers in and judge him and everyone else on what happens next.

      I have voted unsure because he seems as if he he doesnt know what to do to get us out of this bad run of results and the team seem to have gone stale as everybody has got wise to the way we played at the start of the season and he doesnt seem, to be able to change it. I hope not but do wonder if the Premier is a step too far for him as he showed at Newcastle and Norwich.

      I do not think we would gain anything by sacking him but I do believe that he needs to re-adjust and rethink his plans and ideas for the rest of the season and its no good going on the radio saying we are working hard to bring in players accept what you have got and show some initiative to improve the situation. If new signings arrive all well and good if not survive with the players we have spent a lot of money on, by our standards to bring in, and use them in a way that is to the best of their ability. How many are doing what we all expected for the money that we paid?

      I am not sure, but regardless of the poll result, the fact that he reverted to a 442, which seemed would never ever happen this season, was a smack of desparation.
      He will see out the season and probably be given one more to get promoted again if we go down, but if he fails then I think a change will be made.

      100% behind CH - He needs to be given the funds to complete the project though. We look toothless in the final third most of the time and has been an issue for a while. We can't keep relying on grinding out 1-0 wins. (which even goes back to the Gus days)

      A young up and coming proven striker and an attacker midfielder are essential this window, the rest of the team is pretty solid. (apart from defending corners)

      He says they are working on defending corners but there was no evidence of that again at WBA. It is such an easy thing to do but we make it look difficult. 2 points win the headers and clear it with a big boot very simple and we cant do either effectively and people are saying Dunk is a £30m defender just compare him to Johnny Evans.

      Do you know that he hasnt been promised the funds and right now I would be happy with 6 x 1- 0 wins however achieved

      Same, but I think that's what CH set out to do today and it back fired miserably. We just don't have the creativity in front of goal to press the other team. There is only so much our defense can soak up when we are not being a threat at the other end of the pitch.

      He only plays one striker!! Makes it a lot harder to sign one when you’re fighting for one place with Murray, Hemed and Baldock .
      That is actually a good point and not an angle I had really thought about in fairness
