      He is usually right on the mark as regards Brighton so wouldn't just cast his views aside.

      I don't remember any of these journalists, pundits and social media keyboard warriors exactly pouring praise on Brighton in recent months for our stultefying brand of football.

      Yet sacking the man responsible for it is somehow a massive mistake.

      Because not everyone believes Hughton is solely responsible.

      Exactly this so-called Albion fan Hayward has been saying we will take a PR hit.

      Well get this Mr Hayward we have been taking a PR hit for months for shite, dire, and lifeless football, that is taking a hit you ****.

      These journalists accept the likes of Chelsea binning off a manager every 18 months whilst consistently winning trophies yet criticise when our Chairman sacks a manager after a horror set of results and survival achieved more through the ineptitude and sheer bad luck of others. The truth is Hughton's Albion choked in the run-in but were bailed out by Palace and relegated Fulham.

      How they can treat Bloom in the same way as they treat all the other trigger-happy chairman beggars belief. At least we didn't do a Norwich and sack Hughton with 4 games to go.

      Clubs in the bottom half of the Prem don't have the luxury of time. Appointing a new manager quickly is important because it give them a chance to meet the players before they all depart for the summer. We don't have the scouting resources of the Top 6 and we have a big summer of business to conduct. The other point is it also gives Chris and his team the best chance of finding a new club and having some sort of pre-season too.

      Correct. What you have to remember is that the 'big name' journalists don't come to Brighton very often. And when they do, it is usually because of who they are playing. And then they either focus on the other team for being brilliant (eg Man City) or being shit (Man Utd).

      There has been some real drivel written today. Some of it has been around the absurd conflation of the general lack of BAME managers and Hughton's sacking; and then the likes of Henry Winter, totally unaware of the long series of poor results and performances. For him to call Bloom cowardly is a joke. The decision is many things - brave, bold, brutal - but never cowardly. The bottler option would have been to leave things as they were.
