    Looks like Hughes is in contract talks so probably not going to be sacked.
    Meh!

      What more could Hughes realistically have done with that squad in that mindset at that stage of the season? Did they expect him to finish top 4?

      Once more we see the arrogance of clubs who think they're bigger than they are and assume they should be qualifying for Europe every season, when football doesn't work like that anymore. I hope both go down and stay down for a bit to knock a bit of humility into them.

      Mind you, it didn't work for Massive or Leeds...

      Semantics, perhaps, but Hughes can't be 'sacked'.

      His contract was only until the end of the season. He is not currently in the job.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Hughes is more likely to jump ship to go to a 'bigger' club, such as West Ham or Everton. Same happened when he went to City, as I remember. Can't stand the bloke.

      However, all the time these clubs keep chopping and changing, it's better for the Albion I reckon. Stability cannot be underestimated in a football club, both on and off the pitch...

      Hughes did a great job at stoke. He's worth a 5 year contract for sure

      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.
      This.

      He's hated on NSC but he did a quality job in galvanising a squad which most NSC'ers wrote off as Championship bound. NSC headlines were written about Hughes sending 2 clubs down in the same season, which proved bollocks.

      He gave Stokes their best PL finishes, and was powerless to let Anautovic go (player power won over Stoke).

      And there are some, for that very reason, (playing devils advocate you understand), who will say that the club have fulfilled their obligation, i.e. employed him until the end of his contract.

      Club sold only PL quality striker and heading for relegation.

      Awful record.

      Hughes comes with a ''Ten Man Entourage'' - He doesn't do any of the coaching. He is a figurehead. Southampton employed his group because that was what was available. They are not the type of club who would normally pay out that sort of money on a Management and Coaching Team. So that might put them off keeping him.

      He spent a lot less than Pulis did too and bettered his results.
