I agree, I was a bit perplexed by the comments relating to Hughton's "neagtive tactics" as from what I recall for two seasons under him Brighton could only be described as truly excellent in the championship. Its clear the "negative" stuff relates only to the premier league - maybe cross that bridge if we are lucky enough to be there?

CH record with BHA in 2 seasons 2015-2017

2015-2016 Played 46 - Won 24 Drawn 15 Lost 5 - GF 72 GA 42 GD +30 - Pts 89

2016-2017 Played 46 - Won 28 Drawn 9 Lost 9 - GF 74 GA 40 GD +34 - Pts 93

Total - Played 92 - Won 52 Drawn 24 Lost 16 - GF 146 GA 82 GD +64 - Pts 182

 

That is 1.97 PPG over 2 seasons conceeding less than a goal a game average, and scoring 70+ each season

They also quite often scored 3+ goals at home and had very decent home form

Yes, but where's the losing runs? We can't do without them.......

I have been told by Norwich fans he was defensive, I did think one calling him the Antichrist was a little overboard though. One of Sky's reporters saying he's interested.

and many supportive of him. I think there were good reasons to defend a little more when you're in the Prem BTW.

One worry is that Michael Flynn is new favourite at the bookies. I know there are no guarantees ,  but Hughton ticks so many boxes and surely the Lansdown's can see that. I do hope something happens soon though. Saw a Fulham fan wanting Parker sacked and Hughton in 🤔

Indeed.

Their main gripes seem to be that his football is pragmatic at best (not just towards the end) and that he just won't promote youngsters.

But can't argue with the CV - I'd forgotten that he had a season at Birmingham and got them to 4th in the championship.

 

That could be a potential negative although I don't think the players that could be in the squad are that young anymore.

I'm not worried about the bad times we'll have towards the end, we'll get that with any manager. It's the good times beforehand that I'm interested in.

His promotion side was full of goals, and a very much a 4-4-2 . Not sure that can work the same today, and he got bogged down trying not to lose games in the Prem. But he comes across as an astute person and certainly has a good solid experience. There are no perfect appointments, and the aim here is to get to the Prem not win it. He looks a solid competent choice. But then we do not know who else is interested, and a little odd he has said he is interested in a public way. Maybe to dispel any doubt he would not want it. I am sure the club have had a lot of interest they just need to decide what it is they are wanting to achoeve from a footballing philosophy , as that has been the most worrying missing item these last years.

Be good to know at least 6 /7 down the spine are certain starters for most of a season! Then you can bring in the younger ones to be nurtured without huge responsibilities.

Always take these Sky stories with a pinch of salt. Remember, they work with SkyBet. Hughton was 3rd/4th favourite at one point, haven’t looked but I bet he’ll be odds on now.

If they know something, they’ll suspend the betting. If they want to encourage money being spent, they’ll release a story like this.

Would love it to be true though.

Why are people saying he will boring just because he boring in the premier league? Baffling. Judge him on his championship teams which were not boring 

And there we go. No more need be said.

Can anyone remember/speculate why he left Newcastle?  Was a surprise at the time as I recall.

Two words - Mike Ashley. Treated badly from the start and a ridiculous saga with Joe Kinnear. Eventually replaced with Pardew.

Ah ok, didn’t know that. All the Sky guys still do the adverts, so assumed there must be a link still somewhere.

Here’s the odds as at 18:30 on Monday just in case, watch Hughton drop now...

A good manager will learn from mistakes and experience. He's had 12 months to look back, reflect and think if only i'd........

Like to think this has made him a stronger manager.

His time out can only be to our benefit as he's had an opportunity to look at games, other teams and players with potential. All without the day to day pressures.

I'm glad he's said he's interested, but if he has only said that today then does that mean we haven't contacted him yet? 🤔

I assume this was part of an interview or discussion about something else and he was asked the question? If we had spoke to him he’s not likely to come out and say that yet
