Mike Ashley Is Right To Review Hughton At Xmas!
We reported it LAST WEEK that Mike Ashley was to review Chris Hughton's position at Christmas, and the news finally broke nationwide last night. We published the article online: "If Newcastle United are in the relegation zone by Christmas, Mike Ashley will replace the manager". There have been rumours ever since that his days are numbered, and last night's 4-0 home defeat to Arsenal had many Newcastle fuming that he played an entire reserve side in a cup competition. The club released a statement confirming their plan to retain his services ... but they will do it ONLY if the club are in a healthy position. The statement said: “Chris is our manager and will remain our manager, and it is our intention to re-negotiate his contract at the end of the year.” Trust me on this one - Ashley will do anything in his powers to keep the club in the Premiership and that includes bringing in a new boss ... should it seem necessary.
