Chris Hughton

Overheard phone conversation, MA to CH...

”Look, I’m glad you want the job Chris but you have to take Dean and Jamie as your assistants. We’re not going to budge on that. You have another three weeks to decide or you’re out”

I think the retaining of Holden & McAllister will be an imposition on the new Head Coach that someone like Rowe or Robins would accept but Hughton, Neil or any decent manager would not.

Coppell had to accept good old Keefy Millen on top of SL making the vanity signing of David James. Coppell's success at Reading was in no small part due to Wally Downes on the training ground and Nicky Hammond on player contracts / recruitment.

For me - Hughton is the man that we will announce. Breaking it down, Neil and Cook both come with compensation clauses, and both will expect a relatively high salaries alongside it, Neil an experienced manager in the championship with promotions on his CV from the division, and Cook is in demand so is in a great position to negotiate. Holden although thought highly of by some of the board, will be a risk that the club can not afford to make in this current time.

Yep.... the fact that Ashton Gate seemingly don’t understand the value of a ‘team’ that gels and delivers probably behind their desire to shoehorn the new coach into the existing set up.

 

Anyhows, massive risk that Holden and Jamie will soon be gone to rejoin Lee when he gets his new Premier League Manager appointment.

You've been pretty adamant that he's coming here since it was first mooted.

Hope you are right...

Thanks 01. I don't know any more than anyone else on here. However, this is a golden opportunity to show real ambition and intent in a managerial appointment. I trust the board will not let this one pass us by.

The club's Twitter account is still being pestered on an hourly basis to announce Hughton as it has been for a month now!

It's changed from 'Announce Hughton' to 'Announce a manager' now though, everyone just desperate for someone/something!

Now let me get this straight. Hughton is the fans' (and my) first choice, but the club's second choice. Cook is the second first choice and Neill is the bookies' choice. Holden is the housewives choice and Robbie Fowler is the choice of people with more money than sense and a vivid imagination. 

Do we have any other choice?

Just asking for a friend.

Who are Radio Verulam and why should we pay any attention to them?

Good luck Matty.
 

Whether he was good enough is up for debate, but as mentioned in the OP he didn’t get a huge number of opportunities. An intelligent player who always put in a shift and seemed like a good character too. All the best to him. 
 

Edit - oops, wrong thread, mods please can you move to the Matty Taylor thread????

Hang on. Are we talking about Chris Hughton, Bob Houghton or Matty Taylor on this thread?

I’m just clinging to the fact he would’ve had to agreed to appear at that kick off at 3 charity thing on Sunday, and has said to them he’s taken the job or something. Much more likely that they’ve just assumed that talksport/fake tweet was real

Just spoken to Andy Cole (yes, that Andy Cole!!) at my local golf club (incidentally he plays golf left handed and hit a cracking shot off the first tee!!) I spoke to him about City - his first comment was “you’re looking for a new manager” He said that Watford were really interested as well but that if CH came to us he would definitely get us promoted- he said he’s a great manager and one of the nicest men you could meet.

Funny how more than one random tweet has made a mistake. 
it probably is a mistake... or...

Signed and sealed ready to be announced on 1 August. Clutching at straws....

Gotta wonder if August 1st / a new month has some sort of contractual impact even from a past employer.

I also agree if it were an accident surely if it’s a novice googling him they would just use his wikipedia or something of previous clubs
