    That perception is stuck with him now though, many think justified, many like myself feel it has been much more down to confidence and performance than tactics.

    I hope he gets another chance in the top flight, and probably have little doubt he will. Just hope we're not waving at him travelling in the opposite direction.
    Tend to agree. I think Hughton has the potential to be a very solid Premier League manager with the right opportunity. The problem he's got is that he's now got both Norwich and Brighton on his CV, where on the surface it looks like he got sacked for playing too negative and driving the clubs towards relegation (yes, I know we survived, but our last 23 games if extrapolated to a full season = nailed on relegation). He doesn't help himself with some of the interviews towards the tail end of the season, either, where his talk around how/where we might find some goals to help us fend off Cardiff sounded very negative - he didn't take the opportunity to talk up positive approaches to solving the problem, and instead made some very odd comments about maybe forcing an own goal or having a lucky deflected shot and the like. It also (from a distance) generally looked / sounded like over the last 5 or 6 games he'd decided that the road to safety was grinding out draws - but that wasn't going to get the team going again from a morale standpoint.

    I fully expect a championship team to pick him up, and for that team to do really well under his tenure and push for / gain promotion. Hopefully he then gets what he needs once promoted to show what he's got. The key thing for Hughton as a manager is to do everything he can to avoid going into 'siege' mentality if he does experience a run of defeats. His strength appears to be on the defensive side (note: I'm not saying he's *too* defensive, just that this is where his strength lies). The thing he needs to be careful of is not falling back on that defensive strength as being "the answer" when having a challenging run.

      Big difference is that Hughton has previously showed that he can manage in the PL and gain points.

      Yep, I'm a fan of Hughton but once the players showed a lack of confidence in the him and the new signings were not performing as expected there can only be one outcome.

      It's either sell the team or find someone who can get more out of them. If they really are as bad as we often looked during many games this season then we are really in trouble with any manager because Chris really would have demonstrated that he really did get the best out of them.

      We will only find out if Chris has got the best out of this squad if we have another manager to compare it to, and the players cannot get any worse.

      Dare I say that his top level is Premier League fire fighter? If he was as good as some would like to think a top job offer would have come his way. He has been brilliant at keeping us up but has he the potential to be a top half of the table manager? I think a mid/ higher Premier League team would have made moves for him if he was. I haven’t heard any noises that suggest he is that man.

      I do not think he could take us higher, even with a bigger budget, the mindset seems to be defence, defence, defence at this level.

      There is a massive difference between the Premier and the Championship.

      If you are asking if we have poached our new manager, that is an eggcellent question. I've scrambled around to see if I can find out what it's boiled down to, should be able to let you know by Fryday.
