It's Hughton Some Time Very Soon

It's Hughton Some Time Very Soon

It looks like the wait is almost over with just about every paper and website reporting that Chris Hughton is about to be named as the new boss at Birmingham City.

This news will please most fans who have backed Hughton as the next man since McLeish slithered off to Aston Villa.

Reports say that the ex-Newcastle boss is all but there, its just a case of crossing the t`s and dotting the i`s and Blues will have a manager who knows how to get a side playing exciting football and score goals, not to mention having the experience of getting into and managing in, the Premier League.

Hughton reportedly impressed acting Blues chairman Peter Pannu during interviews, and City owner Carson Yeung is anticipated to sanction Hughton`s arrival. This will be Yeung`s first managerial appointment since taking control of Blues early last year, and Hughton will face the tough task of picking up the pieces at St. Andrews.

Yeung is looking for Blues to regain their Premier League status at the first attempt, that is something that Hughton has done before in style and it led to him moving up from caretaker manager to take the job on a full time basis while he was doing it.

And those of you with a good memory will remember that Hughton led Newcastle to a 6-0 hammering of Villa to celebrate their return to the top flight.

It would be nice to see that happen again.

I think that expression in the pic you've put up will pretty much sum up his tenure at St Andrews. I think he will struggle with the quality of player at Birmingham considering the squad he retained at Newcastle

It looks like now we'll have a much better,more attack-minded manager in Hughton to get us back up. villa will now have to endure Big F'Eck's mind-numbingly boring "let's not lose this lads" tactics and will now be the lowest scoring team out of all 4 leagues. Darren Bent will have a nervous breakdown and cross the city to us,on our forthcoming promotion! Just as we wave goodbye to the villagers on their way down with Relegation F'Eck McJudas steering the sinking ship! It's a great new start with the first selection of a new manager by our Chinese owners,a total clearout of the can't-be-bothered mercenary dross that saw us relegated in the first place. A total rebuild of the team and the chance to watch us rise,like a phoenix out of the ashes,a club reborn. I've never been so excited about relegation or a new season before
