The real star this season! Chris Hughton!

I know Chris Hughton is not the most popular on here and if we were to draw up a list of 100 managers to manage Newcastle he would not be on it but what the man has managed despite all the off field shit has been nothing short of stunning. He has united the squad, got them playing as a team and as a result we sit top of the table and eight points clear of the play off places. How many men would have put up with some of the shit he has had to cope with with no guarantee that he will still be there long term. He has spent much of this season with Shearers shadow hanging over him yet he continued plugging away and getting results. There seems to be a real sense of togetherness amongst the players and Chris has to take the credit for that. I have also been impressed with his professionalism and the dignified way he has gone about the job. Who knows what the future holds with that fat wanker Mike Ashley in control, we may go straight back down again and sell even more players. Chris has however offered us a ray of light and once again given us some hope and even some pride in our football club.

Keep it up Chris and hopefully we will be celebrating in May! Big Grin

credit where it is due he may well get us back but he will be sacked once we start to struggle in the prem unless either Ashley fucks off or spends big and clever.

hughton has too take a lot of credit ,..shudn`t say stupid things like `thanks to Mike and Derek for their support`,..i know he has to keep hold of his job, but FFS that doesn`t endear him to the fans at all,..has he not seen the fuckin banners and heard the chants Rolleyes,...unless he sees himself as a member of the cockney mafia

I agree with this. I think they have a massive influence on the team and are more responsible for the team togetherness than Houghton

Hughton is a coach pure and simple. The first 11 more or less pick themselves and the players are virtually managing themselves. The likes of Smith, Nolan, Taylor etc etc are playing blinders and the humiliation of relegation has gelled them into a tight unit.

Credit to Hughton for picking players in their correct positions and not falling out with anyone (compare his quiet demeanour to that cunting oaf Kinnear and his pathetic "Insomnia" insult), but lets not get too carried away. This is a shite division and when he was in charge in the Prem last season we were fuckin terrible.

If he is in charge next season I'm afraid he will be booed out of the club by Xmas. If he was a clever man he would revert back to first team coach the day after promotion. Unfortunately this is football we are talking about and intelligence is a rarity.

I reckon he'll struggle big time if we get promoted next season. There have been too many teams that walk this league and then are exposed as total shite once they get to the prem.

Agree with the lip and he should step down, if he has any sense, once promotion is gained.

To be fair to him, it was behind him when the ball was played in. Looked trickier than you're making out.

Hughton has done a grand job, and deserves manager of the month should he get it. He's worked wonders with a small squad, and we coped with a mini defensive crisis too.

"worked wonders with a small squad"

To be fair on the rest of the championship our squad is fucking amazing compared to the shite that most clubs have. Big well done to Hughton for steering the ship but FFS the team is packed with current and former internationals.

I still think he is just a coach he is not managerial material. As flip rightly states this is a shite league and the 1st 11 picks itself.

He no doubt will win a few more manager of the month awards and that is only good for us as it means we are winning but IF we gain promotion this squad will finish in the bottom 3 again as i cant see fatty investing in new players.

I am not disagreeing with you Rotti. All I am saying is that in the current circumstances he has done a bloody good job holding it together. He may well not be the long term answer but credit where credit is due and so far he has done a good job.

Aye m8 he deserves credit for getting us where we are but this is a truly shite league so im not getting over excited about promotion because i know with Ashley still here we will come straight back down.

But as much as i dont rate Hughton as a manager he deserves credit for keeping quiet and just getting on with it.
