Hearing the news that Chris Hughton was sacked disgusted me. Unbelievably, he is the first manager casualty of the season after guiding Newcastle United to 11 th place with three games left until the new year.

sacking Chris Hughton just shows what a totally deluded club Newcastle are. Nobody outside of Newcastle really expected them to get promoted straight away last season, and the way Hughton did it was class... added to that the fact that Hughton stood by the club while Kinear was ill and that Shearer was given an opportunity to try and fail at a job that Hughton should have been given first crack at. Ashley said that the club needs someone with proven premiership experience, that just goes to show how little he knows about football management. Most managers learn about football through making mistakes and it's very rare for someone to show the natural aptitude towards the game that Hughton has. Ashley deserves to pay the price for his shortsighted management, that said I like Newcastle as a club and think the fans deserve a successful team, it's just a shame for them that they someone totally devoid of vision as a chairman
