He is a championship manager who can get you up and keep you in the league for 1 season, Brighton where 2 off going down in the end and the reasults in the 2nd half of the season was relagtion form

If they don't go up Crouchy, I'd say that's a great shout.

Coming from the area, the writing has been on the wall since Christmas. Most of the fans said they'd like him to leave gracefully as they like him, just not the style of football being served up. Oh, and the amount of money spunked up in transfer fees for poor players didn't help.

Good luck to him. Championship clubs could do a lot worse.

Can't see him at West Brom after the fans outed Pulis for similar crimes against football.

If Warnock goes I'd imagine he'd be a shoe-in at Cardiff.

Isn't Dan Ashworth charge of recruiting there?

Very poor decision, he was a good fit for them.

Good stuff from @priceoffootball

As a Brighton fan I’m staggered by @OfficialBHAFC sacking Chris Hughton. Side with third lowest budget in Premier League finished fourth bottom & made semi final of FA Cup. #BHAFC scapegoating Chris for failures elsewhere at the club.

@KieranMaguire
Chris Hughton wasn’t the reason why #BHAFC signed Jahanbaksh & Locadia instead of David Brookes & Daniel James, both of whom were recommended by the scouting team but rejected by the algorithms of the analysts.

Big Sam to go there?

They have a fairly solid defense and Glenn Murray up top. A few fine tuning here and there and he'd soon turn them into one of his blueprint teams.

A mate who is a long time BHA season ticket holder is fuming about this.

Says in the circumstances and the hand hes had to play with, that Houghton has basically pulled off a miracle keeping them up, but again, a loud minority of fans are wanting style over substance and have now got their way.

Feel for Houghton to be honest, they're punching above their weight.

Hope he gets a good gig soon.

Can see him back at Newcastle if Benitez clears off.

Chris Hughton is not in the same league as Pulis or Allardyce when it comes to functional football

He may have gone overly pragmatic in the Premier League, especially as the pressure has ramped up, but his previous teams have been much more expansive

Based on this I reckon some Brighton fans have been struck down with a bout of entitleitis. Two seasons in the premier league, player capped for England, involved in games such as the one at the weekend with Man City. . .

You have to earn the right to play in the prem just as we did under Sam.

Doomed next season.

I don't know about "doomed". Depends on the next manager and whether they've sorted out some decent transfer targets. And CH ain't Sam. At least SA set out to win most home games. CH always seemed to "hope" for a result.

Not sure what Chris was supposed to do with the squad Brighton have. It's a relegation standard squad so he's not gonna play expansive football with it. Who would West Ham want from their squad. No one in my opinion, that says it all. Simple fact is the team finished where it deserved, another manager won't change that.

36 points. It's difficult, but if you're nervous it's better to get a new man in early and give them the summer.

As a board, if you feel that he isn't the man to move you forward the it's a tough one. Up until the point they got at Newcastle though, they just looked nailed on for the drop.

Sometimes a change is as good as a rest, for both parties.

As part of our Squad ?

Anthony Knockaert scores the odd worldy , not sure what else he contributes to the team though .

Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy have both been solid with Duffy getting the nod maybe - but no it's not a squad of players I'd go to to improve ours as such - but if I had to I'd buy Duffy .
