Chris Hughton has been interviewed today and confesses he couldn’t have wished for a better start to the season.
Chris and Colin – start could hardly have been better
Hughton talked to the official web-site today:
“I couldn’t have wished for a better start if I’m honest,” “We were heading into the unknown a little bit at the start of the season.”
“But what we knew we had was a committed set of players, where that would take us we weren’t sure.”
“But we’re delighted to be top (of the Championship) and still unbeaten.”
We half expect an announcement today that we’ve signed one or two loan players, and the one we look forward to is that of Manchester United’s 20 year-old defender Craig Cathcart, who played 31 times while on loan at Plymouth last season.
It looks like we tried to sign Craig last week, but he somehow managed to fail a medical, but we have no further details on that.
And Chris will probably be looking to bring in a striker other than Marlon Harewood from Aston Villa, as the player is still injured after picking up an injury in pre-season.
Maybe Sunderland’s David Heaky would be the best bet, however Chris could suprise us with somebody who hasn’t even been mentioned.
Today is the first day clubs can sign players on loan, and it applies only to Football League clubs.
