Gentleman who knows football

I write to congratulate James Lawton for his very fine article on Chris Hughton (Irish Independent, April 13). I have supported Newcastle United since in or about the Wyn Davies era, and have seen many managers come and go. Some good but mostly poor.
I agree with Mr Lawton that Mr Hughton has done a very fine job for Newcastle this season and while, at the time of writing, United have not won the championship title, I expect them to. There was no ranting and raving by him in the papers during the season if results did not go his way, unlike "top" managers in the Premiership.
I hope Newcastle appreciate him and give Hughton his chance in the Premiership next season. He is a gentleman and knows his football.
