I was really surprised. I mean, Chris Hughton takes Newcastle back into the Premier League, with a great season in the Championship, where, if you remember, he got rid of players who didn't want to be there and then got the players who did performing. Then as I said he took them up, and thye haven't done badly. Sure they lost at home to Blackburn and Blackpool, but they also hammered Sunderland, beat Arsenal, got a point from Chelsea.
Foolish sacking. It will also upset the camp.
