If we were Chris Hughton then he may want to even delay the contract negotiations with Derek LLambias.
Chris Hughton – could delay contract negotiations to his benefit?
The reason is that Newcastle look to be in tremendous form right now, and not only that, but the lads seem to have become a lot more professional over the last several games, as they seem to have managed to become a lot more consistent.
And of course they have even managed to play well at home in smashing Sunderland 5-1, last Sunday.
Newcastle have two home games coming up, Blackburn and Fulham, and 6 points cannot be taken for granted, but if the Newcastle side continue with the attitude that Chris Hughton drums into them every single day – that the next game is important and all that ever matters, then there’s a decent chance they can get two more wins before Saturday night – maybe.
And we also expect the fans to start returning to St. James’ Park, following some great displays from the lads recently.
So we could have 23 points from the first 13 games and then we don’t know how high we’d be positioned in the Premier League – maybe even in the top four.
We are still very surprised at how good Newcastle have looked in their last 3 league games, happily surprised mind you, and if the team continues to play like this, then surely we can at the very least, avoid a relegation battle this season.
But Chris has done nothing but put his contract value way up over the last three games, and that could be even higher come Saturday evening. And we know the Newcastle players are playing out of their skins for their manager, so Chris can get a long term contract and stay on Tyneside.
It’s got to be looking good for Chris Hughton, to be offered a good long term contract.
And when was the last time a Newcastle manager actually earned a good contract?
