    The idiot should've demanded a new contract after some of those results he got.....now he's paid the price.
    Hughton was waiting for a contract, and repeatedly said he wanted it resolved quickly and he'd love to extend it. Ashley didn't offer one, not because Hughton didn't want or demand it, but because he didn't want Hughton as long term manager.

    It's painfully obvious that Ashley never intended on giving Hughton a new contract regardless of what happened. The fact that Hughton was rumoured to be close to the sack after one loss to Arsenal in the League Cup despite the fact we were something like 6th in the league at the time tells it all.

    Hughton has been treated disgracefully, and I'm ashamed that my club has done this to such a fantastic person.

    Mike Ashley is officially the biggest retard in sport.
    I think Don King takes that title by a long way.

    But in football, yes he is. A close second is the guy that ruined Leeds and then went to Cardiff and did the same. Can't remember his name. :facepalm2:

    When you were in such a good position he could always have demanded a new contract or he'll leave - in which case I'd suspect he'd of got one. It's just he seems a bit too naive in that respect. Now after 5 games without a win he's been sacked.

    I guess he was too nice to do something like that :P

    Martin Jol will go to the Toon now, which would be a perfect replacement. Although There are reports of Shearer going...but that is more of a downgrade compared to Hughton.

    So we get rid of a perfectly good manager, who has the full backing of the players and have them playing with confidence; and sack him in favour of another manager who isn't a better manager, who probably won't have the backing of all the players and they'll probably be demoralised.

    Great work, Ashley. Stunning businessman.

    Apparantly Pardew is good friends with Mike Ashley, well he won't be surely once he actually tries to work with him.

    From the link posted above:

    "It is believed Pardew became close friends with Newcastle owner Mike Ashley and director Derek Llambias when all three were familiar faces at an exclusive London casino where Llambias was managing director."

    Agreed. He's rotten; it looks like a case of "jobs for the boys". Newcastle are a shambles, total soap opera of a club, which is a real shame for their fans who are amongst the best I've encountered.

    I can vouch for that, I went to St.James Park when we got hammered and they were very good to us and friendly, you wouldn't get that off the Mackems.

    Alan Pardew? Comedy capers, Newcastle are an absolute joke.

    He might as well appoint Shearer as his assistant, relegation can't be far off now. Hughton is the first manager in a while to get you playing some nice football that was getting results and even I had began to warm to Newcastle but Mike Ashley is a pathetic, spineless man and the circus starts again...

    I remember Dave Whelan saying (just para-phrasing here) that Ashley pretty much doesn't have a clue what he's doing. A great example of a big boy in business trying to lay down his power at a football club which he has no passion for.

    Pardew won't do better than Hughton and to the reasons that Stu has provided, could do them more harm than good.
