StevieDay1983 Posted May 13, 2019 Share Posted May 13, 2019 Chris Hughton has been sacked as Brighton manager. Interested to hear what our resident Seagulls fan @Tiffy has to say on the issue. Personally, as this is the view of a neutral, I think it's a tough but necessary decision. Brighton are at a stage now where they need to look at the next phase of evolution for the club. If Hughton stayed they'd just be in another risky relegation battle again. I think it's a gamble but a needed gamble for the club to progress. Bring in a more competent manager and try to push on up that table. It's still too early for solid next manager markets but odds released a month ago suggested the leading candidates were David Wagner, Sam Allardyce, Martin O'Neill, and Alex Neil. I think they need to think a little bigger than that. I'd even suggest gazumping Newcastle by swooping in for Rafa Benitez by offering him more money than Newcastle are offering along with a war chest. It's a long shot but they wouldn't go down under Benitez and could, with the right signings, push on into the top half and beyond. Edit: Early markets now being released with Graham Potter, Frank Lampard, Steve Gerrard, Marcel Keizer, Phil Neville, Claude Puel, and even Arsene Wenger are other names being suggested. @Mindfulness, @Pep004, @MaliMisko12, @betcatalog, @sajtion, @godofhorses, @Tiffy, @waynecoyne, @The Sexless Innkeeper, @Magic0024, @malabgd, @Duke_Tm, @dogmeister, @Arkadi Manucharov, @derbent, @fat, @allyhibs, @6avin24, @discipline, @the bastardian, @Bronxie, @Bett, @KikoCy, @teddybear3011, @markus808, @allthethings, @Kenton Schweppes, @vasilli07, @Dylan Lynch, @neilovan, @JKos, @zemo91, @kulikTS, @mrclubbie, @Judeksi, @Henind666, @Teodore, @kilkenny1, @newjack, @PokerWolf1, @Dave1X2, @real55555, @jazzman02, @Ameer13, @Gedkip, @mcsilks, @MangoTheThird, @Roy The Boy, @DonPaulo, @Duckets, @yossa6133, @sjuesju, @dylanphan, @thfc, @Dboston, @Dr. Florida192, @money44, @1moregoal, @ggm31v, @EuroDream, @ndanmak, @cummins91, @vicsuna, @abigail, @Carovie, @thfc, @Hitch, and @AndreBR, what do you guys all think?
