Won 3 games in 23 and apparently it's a bad decision. Didn't even hit 40 points.
Danger here, OH NO

Pragmatic manager. They played great football to watch in the Championship. Not really a Premier league squad there to be fair.

I was sad that I couldn’t warm to Brighton, especially with the Hughton and Duffy connection. But their boring colours, turgid style, yellow pack stadium made me look at the in the way I would Wigan, Stoke etc. As such I wouldn’t shed too many tears had they gone down.

That said. Hughton has been excellent with them, and they will start s 3rd PL season in August.

They haven't been good in the last 4 months in fairness. Still done a really good job with them  over all. He won't be out of work for long

yup they have been very poor and were lucky to stay up , cardiff hammered them that night they played when a win would have guaranteed that they stayed up . 

still very harsh on him though , he kept them up after all

As has been said already, they stayed up mainly because the 3 teams below them were woeful. He did well to last this long given how brutal Brighton have been this season. Spent a lot of money in the summer, and yet they didn't progress one single bit.

I’d be amazed if they pick up a “Merry-go-Round” manager. They’ll undoubtedly try to headhunt somebody or scout a manager that appears to be building.

Awful season for Brighton, FA cup semi finalists and avoiding relegation? I'd have Hughton's head on a stick

Some of the bookies already have the Swansea manager, Graham Potter, as their favourite for the Brighton job.

He should be considered, but id say he'll want a premier league , championship job.

What exactly did Brighton's owners expect them to do this season, finish in seventh or eighth place ? With the players and money he had available, Chris Hughton did a very respectable job.

is it possible that Brighton's owners had promised the job to someone else whilst Hughton was still manager ?

He spent £140million in two seasons.

Burnley have spent £140million in five seasons.

Hughton is a decent manager, no denying that but no one can say he didn't have a good transfer kitty available to him.

Newcastle was a whole different kettle, he was 11th at the time, that was a terrible decision especially since we got Pardew in to replace him.

I think people should probably take the green glasses off here.

While I'll agree it was slightly harsh I also think he has probably brought Brigthon as far as he could.

They went on a winless run of 9 games at the end of the season and tbh never looked like actually winning a game in that time. (In fact they only won 3 games since Christmas)

It may have been a case that the players have lost trust in him too.

Think he spent around £100m in two years and had the third lowest budget in the league according to their forum. Transfer committee deciding on potential purchases.
