    Well it does appear bad news day for Premier League managers
    I surrender all control
    To the desire that consumes me whole
    Leads me by the hand to infinity
    Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Well if Stains do sack him, then the football world really has gone mad. I don't like the guy, far too arrogant for my liking, yet it does need to be said, that he has done wonders for the club, and kept them in the Premier League.

      Still, l suppose we all know, that the word 'loyalty' was erased from the dictionary years ago now.

      Further evidence that modern-day football club owners haven't got a clue.

      Allardyce - Brought in to do a job which he delivered on - SACKED
      Moyes - Brought in to do a job which he delivered on - SACKED
      Hughes - Brought in to do a job which he delivered on (massively) - ?

      The whole thng is mad. We give Chrissie a new three year contract because he keeps us in the Premier League and we are really happy with him (I am a fan of his and not being critical of him in any way). Everton were in crap street, finish way above us and thier manager is sacked, the same for West Ham in crap street, finish above us and sacked, and Southampton not that far behind us and who knows? whats going on in some Chairmans minds Thank god for TB.

      As others said timing was key. If Hughton was on Everton or West Ham radar, he's now off it given his new contract.
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      They won't sack him. He'll get a contract. It'd be foolish not to.

      These clubs are basically sacking short-term firefighters, because now they're safe for another year, they're all falling over themselves desperate to appear more forward-thinking by bringing in someone with a fancy foreign accent for the "long term".

      That'll last till around Christmas when they're hovering around the arse-end of the table. Then Jose / Carlos / Juan will get the boot, and they'll revert to some Pulisball to save their arses again over the second half of the season.

      Repeat.

      Why would Chris Hughton be tempted by the Everton and West Ham jobs anyway? Footballing wise we are now pretty much capable of competing with either of them, and in Wet Sham's case at least, they have a terrible reputation when it comes to the hiring and firing of managers.

      I'm sure that he is astute enough to be aware that he is in a win win situation with us, Tony Bloom has only ever sacked one manager, and tahat was because of gross misconduct, nothing to do with what happened on the football pitch. If he is sensible, he virtually has a job here for as long as he likes.
