Hughton take a wthi interview

Recommended Posts

Sorry if he has already said something and missed it, but he has to come out angry! This has been too many times this has happened to us in general, and the smaller teams.

I don''t care if he gets a ban, a fine or anything, he has to tell the FA how much of a disgrace the reffing was and show some passion as to how were had confirmation of safety stolen away from us today!

Firstly it would show some passion which I am sure many fans seem to think he lacks.

Secondly, although yes it may be seen as slightly stupid, the top managers do it week in week out and get away with it, so sometimes you have to play their game. Its a admittedly childish viewpoint but if the FA and top mangers are going to do it then sometimes it has to be played that way.

It probably wouldn''t make the slightest bit of difference in reality, but sometimes you just have to stick your neck out and say what needs saying

When managers in the premier league get any decision against them, they will come out and defend these decisions in a blink of an eye, had it been the other end Wenger would have said nothing but the decision because thats his style. Fergie is another who often states stuff as over the top and against his side (RVP ball situation as one major example).

As for him cracking under pressure I don''t agree, he has come out and said something, which I agree with what I said he could have happily gone further without "cracking". It is just the unfortunate way of the premier league that managers will often throw their toys out of the plan. Warnock on final score actually seemed delighted to show a view and not be under such extreme restrictions, now I am not a fan but he makes a valid point about how little allowance for speech the lower managers get

Norwich manager Chris Hughton:

"Losing in that manner is frustrating. For 85 minutes you have to

accept the balance of possession is going to be Arsenal''s. But we

battled well, broke when we could, took the lead and made it difficult

for them.

"If it''s a bit of quality that opens you up, then you hold

your hands up. But a decision has gone against us that a linesman has

given from 45 to 50 yards away and the referee is less than 10 yards

away.

"For a linesman to give it from that distance, and the third

goal was offside with him 10 yards away, it''s almost criminal on a day

that we deserved so much more."

We are essentially making the same point here. By even saying anything against the ref Hughton is taking some risk. My point with Warnock was has can have that freedom, as you have said, but I also mean that he was essentially saying managers should have more right to some freedom without this so called risk.

But anyway, I am happy with what Hughton said, he has questioned it and though I know it won''t make the slightest difference at least thats something.

Mister chops if you dont see top managers slamming refs you are not watching interviews. Every bad decision is highlighted by the likes of fergie and wenger.

I agree - but then I hate them every time Messrs Ferguson and Wenger do so.

I thought Hoots'' interview was measured and fair - he is obviously thoroughly hacked off, and for him to use the word criminal is as strong as he is likely to go. I hope he uses it to motivate the players for next week more.
