When we saw Chris Hughton in his very smart suit on the touchline at Upton Park on Saturday, we wondered if he had become one of those managers who wear suits on the touchline.
Chris Hughon – he must be going to a dance after the game
Managers like Mark Hughes. Arsene Wenger and Alan Shearer when he managed Newcastle for a short while always wore their suits, but up till last Saturday Chris always wore training gear on the touchline, although he was always very smart looking.
The mystery was revealed today when in fact Chris’ father wants him to wear a suit on the touchline.
This is what Chris said today:
“It was just a decision I made actually. Sometimes you make decisions to either give you a bit of luck or to change things and my dad keeps telling me he wants me to wear a suit, so I thought I’d give it a go.”
“There was no real significance behind it, it was just a decision. Do I see myself wearing a suit every game? No. No, I don’t. In all honesty, I don’t know if I’ll wear it again this week, I’m not superstitious at all.”
So we’ll hold our breath tonight to see if that smart looking suit will make another appearance, this time at St. James’ Park against the Gunners, but we hear that Sol Campbell has no chance of being involved because he is still struggling with a thigh strain.
That’s a pity becasue it was a chance for Sol to get another full game against his former club and show what he can do.
He may make the bench for our very important game on Sunday at home against Sunderland.
