We are really hoping that Chris Hughton gets the West Ham manager job, becasue we are sure he could do a good job for them in the Championship next season.
Chris Hughton – did magnificent job for Newcastle
Chris had an excellent record at Newcastle, and of course got the Magpies a fabulous 102 points to win the Championship last season, and in his first 16 Premier League games this season, he had 19 points and Newcastle were in 11th position.
Of course he was then surprisingly fired, and only Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias know exactly why that happened, and then new manager Alan Pardew came in, and he’s also done a good job.
Newcastle are currently in 12th place in the Premier League, with a good chance to finish in the top 10 with a win against West Brom on Sunday.
We’ve looked at the two league records of our two managers this season, and here they are with the total league record of Newcastle on the last line.
P W D L GF GA GD Pts Chris Hughton 16 5 4 7 24 25 -1 19 Alan Pardew 21 6 8 7 29 29 0 26 Total record 37 11 12 14 53 54 -1 45
Chris Hughton would have ended up with 45 points, with his record over a full season of 38 games, and Alan Pardew would have ended up with 47 points, with his record over the full season.
So it’s really surprising how similar the two league records are, but in truth both managers have done very well, and Alan Pardew needs to be complimented because of the way in which he has kept the good work started by Chris Hughton, going through the season.
The former West Ham manager was very bright in not upsetting the band wagon, when he came in last December, with most Newcastle fans shocked and angry at the Chris Hughton firing.
But as the saying goes - all’s well that ends well - and let’s hope Chris Hughton gets the West Ham manger job – he’s currently the bookies favorite after Steve McClaren and Neil Warnock both pulled out of the running.
Steve said he didn’t want the job, and Warnock said he’s not going to be fired by QPR, and fully expects to still be manager next season at QPR.
Newcastle fans will agree that Chris Hughton deserves another shot at managing a good club, and West Ham are certainly a good club, and their excellent fans deserve a lot better than what they were served up this season by the owners, the manager and the players.
Chris can definitely deliver the goods at West Ham, there’s no doubt about that.
