    A thread full of ONLY good things about CH

    Can we do this? We should be able to do imo. If itís negative try to refrain from posting

    Whatever your feelings at the tail end of last season CH put this club firmly on the map in the time he was here.

    The 5-0 against Norwich.

    The best day of my Albion supporting life when we got promoted after the Wigan game

    A manager who always came across as a gentleman and as far as Iím aware never once went off on a public rant about refs, players or other managers

    Over to you.

      As a person, from a spectators position he had no faults. A great man, good manager.

      Best moment for me during his tenure was 2-1 at QPR. I have an unfair hatred of QPR and Seb Poc’s freekick is probably one of my favourite sporting moments. Still can’t belive he didn’t get a deal with us during the summer. I also remember him (Poc) destroying Wednesday with some crosses at the Amex when they imploded. That was also a great CH moment.

      He bought a professionalism and calmness to the entire football business of the club. He typically got the best out of players and we had far more highs than we did lows. Beating ManUtd after drawing with Arsenal in that first season in the PL was a highlight for me, then putting 3 past them in the first half this season was brilliant. Who can forget the Palace at home fixture either this season, fantastic memories.

      A class act with time for everybody, and who yet again disproved the view that nice guys can't be winners. Really proud that such a top bloke has overseen one of the most successful periods in our club's history - and would love to see him go on to more success in his next job. Will always be an Albion legend ����

      I'm 62 next month, I've been watching Brighton since early 1966, and I can state that Chris Hughton is the best manager Brighton and Hove Albion ever had.

      Took us from being a rabble that was struggling to stay in The Championship, to playing some fantastic football on our way to Promotion, only a goalkeeping slip away from being CHAMPIONS.

      Then with a squad everyone was tipping to go straight back down, a lack of that "new striker" we were all craving, he delivered survival in both years in the top flight without ever dipping into the relegation zone (bar the early tables that when I was a kid, never even used to get published).

      That 1st season we finished 15th, and never even looked over our shoulders at the scramble beneath us. Home wins vs Man Utd and Arsenal, then a draw with Tottenham, and we had arrived.
      Then despite very damaging injuries to key attacking threats, Gross and Izquierdo we again racked up results that had us sailing away in untroubled mid-table waters. Such a good 1st half of the season that we were able to ride out the choppy waters, and again steady the ship sufficiently for survival without ever dipping our toes in the icy waters of the bottom three.

      All of this achieved with a calm grace, and professionalism that put our club in a fantastic light. While others sneer and snare, blame refs, boot water bottles and even head butt the odd player (Alan Pardew, I'm talking about you!) before taking a fine and blaming the "passion" of the game, Chris realises that as the manager, you are the face of the club. You are supposed to be setting an example for the players to follow. In Chris we had a perfect example being set, he was always dignified, and yet you could still see the anger was there, the passion was there.

      A great man, a great manager, and his achievements have him right up there, top of the pile for me, as the best manager we have EVER had.

      His histrionics and raging being the inspiration for one of my favourite ever NSC threads.

      Besides that though - he's presided over the most successful period of my Albion supporting life and I'll never be able to thank him enough for it.
