Hughton Named Manager Of The Month For September


Chris Hughton has again been named Manager of the Month For September in the Cocal Cola Championship.

Chris Hughton – two manager of the month awards in succession

The four nominations for Manager of the Month for September were: Chris Hughton – Newcastle United, Jim Magilton – Queens Park Rangers, Roberto Di Matteo – West Bromwich Albion and Ian Holloway – Blackpool.

The winners were announced today during the Sky Sports Soccer Saturday show, and Coventry City striker Leon Best was named Coca-Cola Championship Player of the Month for September.

Our own Kevin Nolan was one of the four nominations for player of teh month, with Matty Fryatt – Striker – Leicester City and Grant McCann – Midfielder – Scunthorpe United the other two nominations.

Hughton told the Evening Chronicle before the award was announced today:

“At this stage in the season, we’re absolutely delighted to be where we are.” “Did we think we could be at this point at this stage of the season?”

“We didn’t know, because we didn’t know what the league held in store for us.” “There was also the situation with players here – we didn’t know who was coming or going.”

“Taking all that into consideration, we’re delighted to be where we are, but one thing you can’t do is get too carried away.””

And after the announcement of the award today, Chris told Sky Sports:

“It’s very pleasing, but it’s very much an award for this group of lads and the staff I’ve got working with me. It’s very much a team award.”

“I’m certainly enjoying it at the moment. It’s very difficult not to when you’ve got a group of lads performing as they are, and we’re at the right end of the table.”

“But I know there are going to be difficult times ahead of us. There are times when we’re going to be stretched and perhaps we’re going to get the injuries that other teams have already had this season.”

“I’ve enjoyed the challenge, and it has been a real challenge at times, but there are certain aspects which have been made easier by the staff that we have and the group of players that we have.”

There’s no doubt Chris has done a great job since he took over the club on July 1st, with Newcastle again in a state of shambles and utter turmoil.

But Chris has managed to get 7 wins and 23 points from the first 10 games, to have Newcastle 3 points clear at the top of the league.

Chris represents distinct class and integrity amid the turmoil at the club, and the bare-faced lies the club has been telling their fans for over a year now.

And after yesterday’s news on the Keegan win over the club, 3 points today is what all Newcastle fans are hoping for.

Hearty congratulations to Chris, on a job well done – now keep it up! 😀

Howay The Lads!!

    Maybe he is keeping the position warm for the return of the MIGHTY JK….whoever sanctioned that bit of business must have been on some serious medicine 🙂

    Again well done to CH and the team who have managed to concentrate on football when all around is chaos and uncertainty.

    Fingers crossed and we’ll get a good performance and a win today too and set him up for manager of the month 3 months running 🙂

    I remember a lot of negative comments when he was first brought here as, allegedly, part of the Tottenham mafia. It’s real credit to him he has took all the bad stuff and just got on with the job.
    We still need more Ipswich type performances though for all of the season, any slip ups and he will probably be back in the doghouse, which would be a pity.

    Wouldn’t making him permanent manager be the kiss of death…… Keep him on a win bonus and hopefully the team will make him alot richer 🙂

    go on hotclix then tino and find out for yourself. they streaming pretty much every game m8
    ————————————————————–
    They don’t work, people post links every week on sites like that and livefootballblogspot, but the links just take you to another page or a site where you have to pay.

    If the game isn’t being shown on any UK or foreign channel then it can’t be streamed.

    Never pay for a link because if the match is on then it will be on free sites like justin tv, ustream, myp2peu, p2p4u, sopcast and adthe.

    Well done CH, and kudos for sticking at it. Unfortunately, in my eyes, you still have a long way to go to make up for all those games you were in charge last season, and for all those miles i clocked up going to various away grounds and watching you fumble around with your clipboard. However, by winning games you are going the right way about trying to make amends…… But i wonder how much of it is because some of the players we have are a step above this league????

    I’m not sure there are too many other options tbh – I mentioned on one of the other threads that we can’t get the radio commentary outside of the UK, so I recommended the BBC live text service instead
