Norwich City: Why Chris Hughton Should Stay with the Canaries
There is plenty of speculation going around at the moment on the future of Norwich City manager Chris Hughton. Most of that speculation is regarding the possibility of Hughton moving to Ireland to take up the vacant spot. There is certainly a section of the support that believes it wouldn’t be a bad thing, but we have yet to hear a sensible suggestion for a replacement.
Obviously, the away performances against Hull and Spurs this season have been disappointing, but the home form has been encouraging enough. It would be wrong for me to say that Hughton is not under some pressure, because the squad has been invested in and that means that results are expected.
However, the manager will want to finish what he has started. This season is of particular interest, because it’s Hughton’s first real chance to work with a squad that he has now been able to put his own spin on. The job with the Republic of Ireland is certainly an interesting one, but the Premier League is really where it is at.
I think we have to be a little bit patient this season and realize that when signing a lot of players, things can take a little bit of time to settle down. This is especially the case when we are also trying to transform to a more attacking way of playing. It’s also important to remember that Norwich has added foreign quality to the squad, so the players and team will need to adapt to get the best out of those players.
Hughton will certainly see the team as a work in progress, and that’s a big reason why he will want to stay. He will also point to the fact that their form will improve as the season goes on. There is no doubt that the majority of football fans like to see an attacking style. But the best managers realize that defensive stability is also just as important.
The Norwich manager will certainly feel that there is still much to do and will want to prove to fans that his way can get the results that we all crave. The board has backed the manager, now giving him a bit of space to show that progress has been made, and fans should certainly look to do the same.
I think it’s fair to say that he is not Ireland’s first choice anyway.
