Chris Hughton struggling at Newcastle as relegation spectre looms

The Newcastle caretaker manager, Chris Hughton, has revealed the growing spectre of relegation at St James’ Park is causing him sleepless nights.

Hughton made the admission as the nightmare scenario that is Championship football loomed for a club sleep-walking its way out of the Premier League.

With club owner Mike Ashley so far opting not to enlist Terry Venables as a relegation trouble-shooter, Hughton has struggled to cope with mounting problems at Tyneside since Joe Kinnear underwent heart surgery.

Doubts persist about whether or not Kinnear will return to the North-East due to his health problems and Venables has been hailed as a potential saviour but it seems improbable he would be lured to the North-East with just eight games left to salvage the club.

There’ll be nobody wanting us to get us out of this position more than myself. The moment the players see worry in me is not a good reflection on what I 'm trying to do. Of course it concerns me, do I like it? Absolutely no.

“Does it give me sleepless nights? Yes, of course, that’s normal, because you don’t want to be in this position or see the club in this position. I’m aware of the responsibility. I have to stay focused for this group of lads. I’m still confident


looks to me that he carnt handle it and they should least try to bring someone in for least 8 games..

Chris Hughton struggling at Newcastle as relegation spectre looms

theres no point now its too late

once again Ashleys dithering has cost us, and him.

he can afford it we cannot.

we ar eon a slippery slope and if, and its a huge if, by some miracle we arent relegated, then a new regime needs employing and left to do the job.

Viana, you actually are as thick as mince, aren't you ?

The idea of pointing the finger and calling people 'fickle' for NOT wanting to sack the Manager who has just won us promotion, whilst breaking records along the way, is as cock-eyed as it gets.

You are, indeed, a complete tit.

RE: Chris Hughton struggling at Newcastle as relegation spectre looms

so im the tit for saying that hughton isnt good enough to manage us in the PL.
but people who slated him less than 12 months ago, and who are now singing his praises are talking sense?

We once sang Ashleys name on the terraces.

Things change, don't you think ?

That is exactly the crack.

Cant you comprehend that the scenario now and that of 12 months ago are polar opposites?????

Hughton has taken a battering last season from everywhere, no doubt taken it on board, still had the balls to go into this season as manager, and NO ONE AT ALL can doubt that we have progressed as a team big time in all aspects of the game.

Its called living and learning mate, perhaps you should try it yourself.

On the same argument, people were screaming out for Shearer to be given the job permanently this time last year.

How many of you would genuinely want that now?

People were saying shearer needed to cut his teeth in the lower leagues, CH has done this and passed with flying colours. I say support the guy.

Well said.

We all know that we didn't want Hughton. We don't need Viana to point it out. Not one single Newcastle fan would have been pleased if we were told we'd start the Championship with Hughton in charge. But he's proven us wrong, and I'm fucking glad to be wrong.
