>Newcastle sack Hughton in response to mid-table mediocrity and stability


Newcastle United have disgracefully sacked manager Chirs Hughton, the man who led them back to the Premiership at the first attempt.

Chris Hughton has led his rag bag  team of ex-cons, future-cons, and Sol Campbell to some big wins this season, and they are sitting comfortably in mid-table coming up to Christmas, when most people thought they would be  under severe risk of relegation. Clearly these was undesirable for the Toon board, who much prefer inflicting high drama and suffering on their ever deranged fans.

The question is, and has been for a while, who on Earth would want to take that job now? One must assume Alan Curbishley is in the frame, but managing that club is hardly an enticing prospect for anybody serious.
