As may be expected Newcastle manager Chris Hughton’s number one job next season is to keep Newcastle in the Premiership.
Chris Hughton – keeping Newcastle In Premiership is job one
Chris is trying to strengthen the squad, but will not have too much money to spend this summer – given Newcastle’s poor financial position.
And the 51 year-old seems to be after a number of top class youngsters like Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere, and Manchester United duo – Tom Cleverely and Danny Welbeck.
Chris told the Daily Star today that he is under no illusions about next season:
“We have momentum and a spirit that has been created and I don’t want to disrupt it. But I’m aware we are going into a better division and I’m mindful of the type of players we need to get in.”
“It is a big job ahead. We are going into a league that I feel is the best and most competitive in the world. We are under no illusions. It is going to be a very tough season.”
Hughton is the type of man who takes absolutely nothing for granted.
He approached games against Scunthope and Plymouth in the same way he approached games against the better teams like WBA and Nottingham Forest, leave nothing to chance and keeping the players feet very firmly on the ground.
And we hope that philosophy will stand the new Newcastle manager in good stead for next season, when we know for a fact no game will be taken for granted, and the lads will fight to the death – so to speak.
We hope Newcastle can survive next season.
