    good manager, good man manager. has his flaws but he's still relatively new in the job, no doubt he'll be a fair bit better a few years down the line. im sure he'll get in some shrewd loan signings when the window opens to sustain your promotion push.

    However, Hughton a Blue? You might want to check his hairstyle!

    They were only on his side because they ran the show. He was powerless in that dressing room and that's why he went.

    There were numerous reports about the power Harper, Nolan, Smith, and Barton had in that locker room. Every big issue within the players went through them. They had the power in that team, not Hughton.

    It's also the reason that almost all of the players involved in that group are no longer at the club. Pardew has balls and won't put up with it, thankfully.

    Heard that, also Carroll was big part of that, though most of it came from Barton and Nolan.

    Questioning Hughton's man management is quite frankly insane given what he had to deal with and the unrest cause by the board. Fantastic man manager and very clever at adapting his style to fit the personalities/mentality of his squad to get the best from them. Would have been interesting to see how we progressed under him when the likes of Cabaye came in. He was brought up at Spurs afterall so will appreciate passing football.

    My view on Chris:

    1/ The man is a class act

    2/ I want him to get promotion. I have always had a soft spot for Blues and I reckon they will do it.

    3/ Hopefully they will get first or second along with Southampton and West Ham have to go throught the Play Offs and lose in the final. Fat Sam explodes. Everyone laughs

    Just to reiterate what others have said. Classy guy, never really followed brum but have been looking out for your results since he took the position.

    I have the feeling Chris would like to be Tootenham 'Otspurs manager one day... perhaps with 'Arry going to prison may open an opportunity.

    You really never know. Anything could happen, anything at all.

    Doubt it, especially if Pardew keeps doing well.
