Hughton has a shocking job on his hands. Who do we bring in for Colback or Yates? Freeman can’t seem to play there. We lost Silva and Watson. The wingers have been piss poor. We have Christie in place of Cash. The squad is completely unbalanced. Too many mediocre defenders and not much to chose from upfront. Mighten is the only one I can see worth throwing on but he’s only young and won’t change our biggest issue - central midfield.
If Hughton is given the Jan transfer window to actually get his own players, he has to be given the time to put his stamp on the team. His record at least deserves that.
The problem is we have that many players on our books can't see anyone coming Knockaert will probably go back
Every time we sack a new manager in we sign a shed load of dross. The new manager then has his own favourite players and the circus continues. Hughton has had less than 2 months at least give him the opportunity to bring in a few players he wants, obviously assuming the men upstairs give him these powers and we get rid of yet more deadwood.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve wanted an attack minded manager for years but we have to stick by managers for longer especially of Hughton’s calibre.
