Take nothing away from Lambert last season, because he did a great job in keeping Norwich City in the Premier League. However, the erratic way he did it had fans a little bit concerned. In fact, had we not done so well in the first half of the season, things could have become a bit uncomfortable.
Some people will be quick to point out that Hughton struggled a bit earlier on in the season, but it was always going to take a bit of time to adapt to the change. The 10-match unbeaten run showed that level of consistency. Home form has been pretty good this season, and that is always important to stay in the league. Of course, it would be nice to win more games away from home, but draws are also important.
Personally, I find Hughton’s approach quite comfortable and it makes me feel a lot more comfortable on long-term success than I ever did under Lambert.
