Hughton’s Father Wants Him To Wear Suit On Sidelines

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.

Comments welcome.

    “So we’ll hold our breath tonight to see if that smart looking suit will make another appearance”

    I’m already pacing around in anticipation! 😆

    Anywho, my team for the neet:






    When attacking, we should stick with our possession football and attack both through the middle AND from out wide. Also, Lovenkrands can drift inside as much as he likes as soon as we get the ball. Ferguson will have to play the ‘Cole role’ as I like to call it: out-and-out LB, but also an out-and-out LW. It’s a very testing role, but I think he could be up to it.

    Then he can bomb crosses in if needs be or he can try to cut inside for the through ball, or he can simply stay back to save energy.

    Guthrie and Vuckic can do the damage through the middle, with Smith wiping up as much ad he can. Then Routledge, Lover and Ranger should be used for break-away football, because, if we can master that, it’ll be the best way to attack against Arsenal. These three could be pivotal.

    3-2 Newcastle 😀
