see Clement also heavily trending down after comment that Zidane not leaving Real and only 1 of him and Clement could leave. Personally think that Hughton probably has more direct experience in championship and serves best chance to get us back up again. In TB we trust.

He'd get my vote - a humble man, doesn't think he is more important than the team, good track record at this level, would have good current contacts at Prem League level and would know of a few discontented players with a point to prove, no baggage (as far as we know), and would accept trying to play the Albion way. Might even get Benno back .....

Could he also have a go at sorting the Park & Ride out?

The picture sums up my feelings his afternoon, please no ! Tony has to get his one right. He said in the interview he cannot guarantee that he will, I thought he implied that may not have happened in the Oscar case.
Mr Naylor has no room to be negative after the Derby game Sky Sports and The Mail embarrassed The Argus who missed the story of the season! They then said they knew he was not happy...poor stuff!

Would be a great appointment. Took Newcastle straight back up, Birmingham into the play offs with zero cash and Norwich to 11th in the Prem. Thats good enough for me. Would be a breath of fresh air having someone with experience rather than another bloke learning on the job, ready to leave as soon he gets a better offer/the going gets tough.

I think you should have looked into Neil Lennon a bit more. He was a great player, has done well at Celtic and is a man who knows what he wants. I have a feeling he left Celtic for two reasons (maybe wrong) (1) For family reasons and (2) Because he needs a new challenge, with Rangers no longer a threat in the Scottish Premiere there is really no team to come anywhere near Celtic. As I say maybe wrong but we could do a lot worse than Neil Lennon for our Manager.

I think anyone could have won the league with Celtic, especially the last couple of seasons. SPL is pretty much a non contest now.
Only my opinion but Lennon comes across vile and arrogant. I certainly don't want him anywhere near here!

I have a lot of respect for Hughton and thought he got a raw deal at Newcastle. I can't agree with some of the criticism he's getting for his managerial track record but I entirely subscribe to the view that he's not the man we're looking for. Each of the prospective candidates undoubtedly has something to offer but, equally, there's something missing in terms of that old fire in the belly thing. I would make a possible exception in the case of Tim Sherwood who could very well pull up a few trees for us. He's not on the bookies favourite list but I still fancy Eddie Howe - yes I know, it ain't gonna happen but I would love to see him sitting in the home dugout at the Amex.

Who ever we appoint we need to behind our new manager not criticize someone before he is here, nothing wrong with hughton or anyone being mentioned about the job, explain why you don't want him, thumbs down from the usual posters, its only the bookies that make him favourite that means nothing

Perhaps we just have to accept that losing in the play-offs every now and then is as good as it gets!

The "drive, enthusiasm and charisma" side of things is up for debate. Personally, I don't see there is a particular issue with that although I'm not privy to know his workings behind the scenes to form a comprehensive judgement.

However, you cannot question his credentials at this level. In what I think was it's only season in this division he won the title. Not bad I think?!

Mr Poyet had too much personality for his own good. His successor appeared to have no personality at all! Mr Hughton would be about right. In addition he is,and speaks, English and has wide experience. Good choice I think.
May I comment on the lazy journalistic phrase 'boss' as applied to football managers/head coaches or whatever you want to call them. The boss of a football club is the guy who holds the purse strings, not the guy in the dugout.This has been true for many years at all clubs. To suppose otherwise is to miss the point I suggest.

The boss of a football club is the guy who holds the purse strings, not the guy in the dugout.This has been true for many years at all clubs. To suppose otherwise is to miss the point I suggest.

I think you should have looked into Neil Lennon a bit more. He was a great player, has done well at Celtic and is a man who knows what he wants. I have a feeling he left Celtic for two reasons (maybe wrong) (1) For family reasons and (2) Because he needs a new challenge, with Rangers no longer a threat in the Scottish Premiere there is really no team to come anywhere near Celtic. As I say maybe wrong but we could do a lot worse than Neil Lennon for our Manager.
I think anyone could have won the league with Celtic, especially the last couple of seasons. SPL is pretty much a non contest now.
Only my opinion but Lennon comes across vile and arrogant. I certainly don't want him anywhere near here!
Yes the SPL is a walkover but Barca weren't when they beat them or ran them close on a couple of other occasions.

I do think he has a persona in the media that grates and will make him unappealing but I'm not sure he's quite so "vile and arrogant" as you say.

Would be a genuinely feasible (new) name in the hat for me.

If you look at the best odds available, the betting is still very close. With one firm Chris Hughton is actually joint favourite with Paul Clement at 2/1. With the same firm Tim Sherwood is 7/2. I'm not sure how much this really tells us. Are bookmakers (and some punters) just reacting to what TS and CH have said over the last couple of days? And remember TS was 1/7 a few days ago. I find it interesting that Paul Clement has remained strong in the market.

I have a lot of respect for Hughton and thought he got a raw deal at Newcastle. I can't agree with some of the criticism he's getting for his managerial track record but I entirely subscribe to the view that he's not the man we're looking for. Each of the prospective candidates undoubtedly has something to offer but, equally, there's something missing in terms of that old fire in the belly thing. I would make a possible exception in the case of Tim Sherwood who could very well pull up a few trees for us. He's not on the bookies favourite list but I still fancy Eddie Howe - yes I know, it ain't gonna happen but I would love to see him sitting in the home dugout at the Amex.
Was it only a few weeks ago that we'd had a number of enquiries from some high-calibre candidates? For me, Chris Hughton does not fall into this category and will not get my "vote"!

Is this really the sort of manager that we're attracting? Expected much more from the hype earlier!

The "drive, enthusiasm and charisma" side of things is up for debate. Personally, I don't see there is a particular issue with that although I'm not privy to know his workings behind the scenes to form a comprehensive judgement.

However, you cannot question his credentials at this level. In what I think was it's only season in this division he won the title. Not bad I think?!

Tim Sherwood has remained the Bookies' favourite since day one, even after he made it clear there had been no contact between himself and the Club. Now Chris Hughton is favourite.
So to anyone who thinks that the Bookies odds are relevant, - why should we believe that the new favourite is any more likely to be appointed than the old favourite?

Essentially manager books are volatile and risky markets, with random or informed bets making a huge difference. Bookmakers usually don't know whether a large / largish stake placed is done so based on insider knowledge, misplaced rumour or a personal hunch. As such they have to adjust their odds carefully and to balance between all possible reasoning.

Initial odds are set based on availability, connections to club, wording of any initial statements made by possible candidates, experience at the level of the club in question and other patterns (e.g our recent habit of appointing Hispanic candidates).

Odds can never be trusted IMHO unless perhaps an unexpected candidate emerges at an extremely narrow price and even then is no guarantee.

That is a fair point, we5ty.
It would be difficult to fault his track record and I have been pushing the case for a Manager with Championship experience since the vacancy first appeared.
Norwich fans I have spoken to say Hughton is ''Too nice''. This quote from Kevin Nolan after He was sacked from Newcastle is interesting:
"Sometimes at clubs, when a manager goes, there will be some players who are pleased to see the back of him ... But everybody liked Chris. He was very popular, not just with the players but everyone who worked for the club."
Logically, this should be seen as a recommendation, but for some unknown reason it is what puts me off the idea of him getting the job.

I'm not sure charisma (or lack of) is the most important quality in a manager/coach. Footballing nous and tactical awareness come way ahead in my book. Charisma is nothing but a bonus (or, in some cases, a massive hindrance).

Don't let football ape politics by becoming about the personality rather than the substance.

For some irritating reason, you do worry what the future holds for the new season. Ulloa going, with Wood being part of the deal, Ward not signing, Lingard coming in on loan again, Hughton being appointed as Manager.

It's all so negative.

Then you see the Charlton goalkeeper, may be the poorest we have seen at the Amex, has gone to Leicester on a 4 year deal (yes, 4 long years) and you think, yes the football world has gone mad and me with it.

Then you see the Charlton goalkeeper, may be the poorest we have seen at the Amex, has gone to Leicester on a 4 year deal (yes, 4 long years) and you think, yes the football world has gone mad and me with it. namgo49

The top men in the odds to be our manager will lose interest as soon as they know our player budget, one man who has experience in running a small squad with little cash to improve is Hughton,we now realise that the Premiership is out of reach and he could keep us in a top half of the Championship.

So arrogance is an issue, but not charisma?

I quot your earlier post:

'''m not sure charisma (or lack of) is the most important quality in a manager/coach. Footballing nous and tactical awareness come way ahead in my book. Charisma is nothing but a bonus (or, in some cases, a massive hindrance).

Don't let football ape politics by becoming about the personality rather than the substance.''

By Christams we will know if Tony got it right, and a big hint will come when we see who he has the suits bring in, or at least try to bring in. I wonder, if Hughton were to get the job, and then make a few decent signings, would those saying NO HUGHTON, change their minds?

That was my first ever away game, but I'm not going to blame a guy for his brother's actions.

Interesting comments.
Opinion has begun to sway purely based on the bookies. A week ago, TS was the favourite and everybody was myopic in their praise.
Now many (not all) seem to be finding ways to embrace CH!
Hilarious.
He did a damned good job at Birmingham under ridiculous circumstances and his personality has nothing to do with his coaching skills. If he gets it, great. If he doesn't, there'll be others of similar ilk lining up.
We're Brighton, (with aspirations) not Barcelona (with attitude).

Yes exactly. Hughton is not the worlds greatest manager but he certainly isn't the worst and has a genuine record of success at this level, which he could well continue at the Albion. If we don't land him then someone else will without a doubt. I wonder if what all those negative people will have to say if Hughton takes over and we're in the top 2 next season? I reckon he could go a stage further than Oscar took us.

Can't really understand the negativity on here towards Chris Hughton.
It seems to me that he is an experienced manager, which is what we need. I thought he was unlucky to lose his job at Norwich and I would wager that if he had stayed, Norwich would still be in the Prem. Norwich panicked and paid the price.
He comes across as a nice guy but that doesn't make him a poor choice.
Some of the other candidates come across as overly ambitious and would jump ship at the first opportunity. I think Chris would stay the course to the Prem and beyond.
So, I think he should be given a chance and our 100% support if he is the chosen one.
Having said that I still favour Steve Clarke but fully expect the unexpected. UTA

Nobody made a move to snap him up yet in the six weeks since he was dismissed.
Maybe that is because Norwich only scored 26 goals in the 33 games which Hughton presided over this season. Many would see that as a poor return, considering they invested £13.5M on strikers in the summer.

This is interesting, the term carrot crunchers.

We are outraged when opposing fans aim abuse at us, you know what i mean.

But it is okay for us to use insults like this.

Yes, but he left Birmingham as soon as he got a better offer.
That's how he ended up at Norwich!
At Norwich, at the most crucial point in their season he was replaced by the Youth Team Coach.

Doesn't exactly inspire does it?

I'm sure he's a decent, honest man but we need a bit more than that at this stage of our development.

I don't really care who the next managers is, who ever it will be, will have to know that he is coming to a club that as very high expectations on a low budget and be willing to use young players. the other thing they will need to be willing do is sign loan players, which I don't think Gus or Oscar liked doing. If the next manager is ok with those issues then we may keep him for more then one season.

Who ever the new manager is, he will have to work fast, because he will only have a month to sign new players, at least 5 at the last count I reacon ,then he will have only six weeks to bed all the players into his way of doing things before the start of the season. lets hope he doesn't have the injury problems that Oscar had.

The one thing I do know is who ever the new man is, he is coming to a club with the best support in the championship that will get behind him if he gets it right, but I expect we will still get the moaners.

If we do start well and keep it up, perhaps some of the tv and papers will start talking about us instead of the team we have just played. Has anybody else noticed that or am I just being picky.
