Hughton Gets The Call

Hughton Gets The Call

Chris Hughton has been appointed as Birmingham's new manager it was confirmed by the club.

The appointment comes just ten days after Alex McLeish resigned to take charge of Aston Villa after bringing in players for next season.

Hughton beat off the competition from Roberto Di Matteo as the race came to an end.

A statement on the club's official website said that Hughton will take charge of the Blues immediately and that the club hoped that he could repeat what he did with Newcastle and get Blues back in the Premier League at the first attempt.

Well Done to the Board for listening to the fans, every poll I saw showed Chris Hughton to be the fans' preferred candidate - so well done. The press also reported that Carson was an admirer of Zola, if this is the case, then Carson should be applauded for selecting the best rather than his preferred candidate. Chris Hughton - congratulations and welcome. Just do your best and try to set your teams up to play football and you will enjoy your time at St. Andrews. Things are looking up, a new manager, a goalscorer, a goalscoring winger and a battling midfielder looking to prove himself and take his chance. Cracking 2 weeks.
