Dunno how much of a say Hughton had in them signings because I don't know how Brighton work but I'm not even sure if I've seen half of them play.

Seems harsh but Hughton always seems to be doing a decent job but gets fucked off, you have to wonder why that is. As someone else suggested, I suppose you have to look at what the fans think of him really to see it in some context.

At least we won’t have to put up with hearing all their names mispronounced next season.

Looking at it properly, I can see why they've done it.

No wins in 9.
11 points from 18 games.

36 points all in and fortunate to stay up, despite spending a fair amount.

Seems like he had a performance related clause in his his contract, so they didn't just sack him for, say, conceding a few goals using zonal marking. Mad that.

My mate is a big Brighton fan and has ‘inside’ knowledge. Says he lost the dressing room and after the 5-0 at home to Bournemouth the Chairman tore him apart and he couldn’t go on after that. I think he knew it was coming.

Can't work out whether it's harsh or not.

They were clearly bollocks for a long while but could another manager have done better?
Of course it is. They're Brighton FFS. Staying the league should be there only aim and they should be cumming buckets that they've achieved it again

But are they not allowed to want better than 11 points from their last 18 games?
Christ. That question sums up what's wrong with football these days. They shouldn't be looking at 18 games because football clubs, teams and managers shouldn't be judged soley on half a season. They stayed up. Despite some bad runs and drops in form they achieved their dreams yet again and little old Brighton will kick off next season in the premier league, they should be thanking Chris Hughton, not sacking the cunt. You could make the same argument about the poor run we had ''oh should Everton fans not expect more points?''

By that logic we definitely should've kept Sam Allardyce.

Imagine.

They got 36 points and can consider themselves lucky to stay up.

Hughton had a good run there and will be fondly remembered by their fans for what he did (taking them from bottom half of Championship to the Premier League) but overall, I personally think the timing was right for all to make the split.

If Brighton go down next season, which isn't out of the question, they may regret the decision but sometimes a club needs to roll the dice to freshen things up.

Talking rubbish for me there mate. They've sacked a manager who delivered them their dreams, for not exceeding their expectations. They will go down next season and everyone will see that randomly ''rolling the dice'' to ''freshen things up'' never delivers anything positive for football clubs, continuity and loyalty are far more valuable but sadly far too rare qualities in football these days

Unfortunately there's such a huge financial difference in staying up and being in the championship. I agree that some managers are chopped too soon these days.

But for example, I'm not sure Leicester would be a premier league club right now had they stuck with Ranieri who had just won them the league.

It's really impossible to say unless you're a player / around the club.

Southampton sacking Adkins the season he took them up is an example lf how ‘rolling the dice’ has paid off massively. They’re now an established prem side.

They may have been with him at the helm though...........

They sacked Adkins when they were 3 points clear of relegation. They also nearly went down this season so established is a stretch
