    Can we agree on one thing?

    Regardless of how 2019/20 pans out it neither proves that sacking Hughton was a good decision, nor does it prove it was a bad decision.

    If we finish 10th under a new manager, there is no way of knowing that we wouldn't have finished 9th under Hughton.

    if we go down in 18th position under a new manager, there is no way of knowing that we wouldn't have finished 19th under Hughton.

    We won't have the benefit of assessing the new manager under the same conditions as Chris Hughton, so there is no way of knowing who would have produced the better outcome.

      You've just ruled out over 100 threads before Christmas. I thought you wanted more clicks?

      Good luck with that.

      First sign of a blip and you know what will happen. Likewise if we do well, there will be smug comments.

      Going to take a while to move past this decision I feel.

      Agreed. Significantly, there's not just a managerial change occurring - there will be adjustments to our recruitment strategy and subsequent personnel change, changes in our opposition, and changes in expectation.

      Bring back Chris Hughton.

      We can't even agree on whether a honey badger is hard, how do you expect us to agree on this?!
