    Thank you, Chris Hughton

    Rather than letting it all get bogged down with the discussion of the decision itself and who comes next as the other thread is full of, I thought we needed a thread to appreciate the man who kept us in the Championship, then nearly got us to the Premier League, then got us to the Premier League, then kept us in the Premier League (twice) and got us to Wembley for a semi-final.

    Thank you Chris, you've been a terrific manager and a credit to yourself and to this club. Thanks for the memories.


    Am I watching Brighton or Barcelona?

      He's done a great job for the club, up until January this year, and where we are overall is fantastic, he deserves full credit for his part in that, but lets face facts, we've been crap this year!
      It's all a load of bollocks

      Spot on. He'll go down as our best one or two managers in history. Most will remember promotion, or securing survival last season, but I want to make a special mention for the season when we just missed out. The transformation from the previous season was just extraordinary, the football was exciting while also displaying Chris' trademark defensive solidity and pragmatic game management intelligence. So many things went against us at the end when it really mattered in that season, but it's the one that's lodged in my memory; sometimes glorious failure trumps success.

      Thanks Chris. It's been an honour to have a manager so universally liked and admired, who always acted with so much dignity. Good luck with whatever happens next.

      Yes, his work over the last 4 years should be appreciated by us all.

      Hope he finds another job as soon as possible

      I don't often comment on this site, as the reading and following it usually enough for me

      But its felt that thanking and congratulating Mr Hughton is a worthwhile contribution at this time

      Thanks Chris- we all wish you well for the future

      Premier League- here we come- you know youve been waiting

      Thanks Chris. Stunning in the Championship, brilliant in our first ever season on the gravy train and got us through second-season syndrome.
