Ludicrous farewell

If you’ve read my blog over the last few months you would have noticed many words of support, praise and thanks directed towards Mr Chris Hughton.  These in my opinion were (and would still be if it wasn’t for that fat twat) thoughts that were mirrored throughout most, if not all black and whites.  You can’t say much about Chris that hasn’t already been said by fans, pundits and professionals throughout the footballing world following his appalling dismissal this week.  Shock, anger, bemusement and just plain pissed off are a few things that I’d like to add.  He is a great man, with great morals and a massive hunger for the game.  He had adapted to our club over the years as a coach and moved into the hot seat with surprising ease.  He stabilised our club and had us running in a way that to be honest we haven’t done for some time.  Yes, he was learning his trade as a number one, yes, he may not be bulging with management experience but he was doing so well.  After relegation everybody tipped us, like I’ve said before, to do a Leeds or a Sheff Wed.  We were a farce.  Ashley and Co were killing us.  We had no chance.  He sorted things out despite dragging this knob end along with us the whole way.  We strolled our way back into the big league and after being given nothing but the odd shopping voucher in the summer transfer window has us sitting in a bloody good eleventh position. Inconsistency has been a problem, but we are a newly promoted side.  We won at the emirates, we stuffed the villa and he provided me with the best day of my life (any guess’s?). 

Despite all this he has been treated like the shit on Mike Ashleys shoe.  I love my club and to see Ashley acting and representing my club in this way breaks my heart.  We had a great, honest and motivated man.  A man who was giving his all for the club.  The players were behind him and the fans were too.  What chance has anybody got?  Do one Mike. Get out of our club. 

Out of all the names that seem to be in the hat I’m thinking that Martin Jol is the one that I would want.  I would be so much happier if Hughton and the current stable or should I say previously stable coaching team were around but because of Cashley, this is where we find ourselves.  So the favourite is Pardew. Please, somebody explain to me what it is that makes him a better candidate than Hughton.  Curbishley? Ok so I’m happy to finish between ninth and fifteenth for the next ten years.  No thanks Alan.  The other one that stands out, unlikely as I believe it may be, is Martin O’Neil.  Don’t get me wrong, he is a great gaffer.  But as a man I just can’t see it.  There is just something that I just don’t like about him.  I can’t see him in our dug out and to be honest, if he can’t work for Randy Learner, how the hell is he going to cope with this cockney plank we have running our club.  Id snap their hands off to have Randy Learner at the helm.  So Jol it is for me.  His teams play nice attractive football and he appears to of had relative success over the years.  He did well at spurs, bearing in mind this was before the money turned up in football and his time spent at a club the size of Ajax can only do one thing.  Seems a nice bloke to go with it.  Ashley again will be the stumbling block there.

So Chris Hughton, I bid you farewell and thanks.  You should be proud of your time here, you’ve done nothing wrong.  I’m grateful for what you have brought to the club (maybe not Leon Best) and you have reassured us that there still are some nice guys in football.   I hope you do well and get a position where you will be respected, appreciated and where I am sure this will result in nothing but success. So very disappointing.
