Chris Hughton


Recommended Posts

Guys, guys guys...hold your horses. We're only at stage 5 (part C) of our rigorous recruitment process. 

Having done the application, interview, 2nd interview, role play, fox chicken grain puzzle group exercise and the general knowledge quiz, we're now moving on to PowerPoint skills and media training assessment.

We're still a long way off the Takeshi's Castle final round.

Post reporting that the telegraph story isn't true,

I'm not one to believe the post but in gmcg's credit he was spot on rubbishing the talksport story

The Post gets a lot of criticism but Gregor only appears to tweet what he genuinely believes to be true. For example, he was went against the grain when there were national press outlets such as Talksport saying he'd agreed a deal. He went on to say that nothing was close which seemed a little odd at the time. He was the first to report on Paul Cook which has since been piggy backed but a lot of other journalists.

It's difficult to get information out of the club at the moment judging by the lack of rumours but he appears to be doing a decent job.

Bristol City fail to reach agreement in Chris Hughton talks

Hughton held talks over succeeding former manager Lee Johnson following his dismissal earlier this month

ByMike McGrath 29 July 2020 • 2:27pm

 

Bristol City’s hopes of landing Chris Hughton as manager have faded after failing to strike an agreement with the former Brighton boss. 

Hughton, 61, held talks over succeeding Lee Johnson following his dismissal earlier this month as Championship play-off hopes tumbled, but it is thought the club will look at other options after failing to make a breakthrough with discussions.

Paul Cook is expected to be in contention following his resignation at Wigan Athletic, where he only suffered relegation due to going into administration and suffering a 12-point penalty. 

Hughton is still expected to be in the running for jobs, one year on from his departure at the Amex Stadium where he kept Brighton in the Premier League for two consecutive seasons following automatic promotion from the Championship. He was also promoted with Newcastle before spells with Birmingham City and Norwich City.

Bristol City chief executive Mark Ashton has been biding his time over an appointment, with Dean Holden taking charge of the last five games of the season as caretaker and only suffering one defeat. 

Johnson, 39, had been in charge at Ashton Gate for four years and earned a reputation as a promising young manager after keeping the club in the Championship and finishing eighth in his final full season, four points off the play-off places. 

During his time at the club, young talent from Premier League clubs have been given chances on loan with players such as Tammy Abraham, Kasey Palmer and Ryan Kent getting short-term deals. 

Johnson was dismissed after a run of nine games without a win, including seven defeats, after looking contenders for a play-off place earlier in the campaign. They ended up finishing in 12th place, seven points off top six and a chance at fighting for promotion.  

Not you’re usual standard CodeRed 👀

Gregor Mcgregor face is now reporting that the Telegraph story is NOT true or correct.

 

So the story that he was appointed last week wasn't true, and now the story stating that he isn't joining isn't true.

He's either got some cracking story/info lined up, or he has a lot of splinters in his backside from sitting on that fence...

I believe Gregor MacGregor more than i do some posters on here . KITR and HARRY are good informative posters on here the rest na . GM gets a hard time but he’s been pretty much spot on

I think it's more the case that he's just telling the truth tbh, he hasn't committed one way or the other as seemingly the club havent either!

The cynic in me wonders if the club leaked the Cook interview to gauge fan reaction, knowing that there will more than likely be a backlash when we fail to land Hughton. 

or to put pressure on Hughton into making his mind up...

Quite possible, Hughton could have terms waiting in front of him waiting to see if Howe goes or Watford make a move etc and we leak details of other options to imply we're ready to move on to make him hurry up.

The forum is actually eating itself alive, i'm just sitting back and admiring its complete meltdown. 

It’s a joy to behold. People completely losing their minds right, left and centre over a myriad of things that haven’t even happened yet 😂

Sitting back? We're not paying you to sit back. Do some work. 😀

I'm actually writing up some IS0 27001 documents.  It's a toss up of what is worse.. the forum eating itself or the document.

As long as it can cope @TomF

I expect it might slow/wobble when Paul Hughton is appointed but we'll be alright.

I know it's endorsed by Tom, but that's just wrong, wrong, wrong.

Straight red. No chance of card being rescinded.

Quite impartial to a Cloudy Lemon/Haze mixer myself.
