Quote of the day

"I know Chris has been disappointed that Newcastle didn't renew his contract when they got promotion this year. It's standard form when a manager gets promoted that they renew his contract. I think it happened with West Brom and Blackpool when they got promoted. I'd say there was frustration for him."

Former Republic of Ireland manager Brian Kerr divulges what we all suspected but what Chris Hughton has been careful to keep concealed.

Speaking to Irish newspaper the Independent, Kerr was denying reports that he's set to be named as Colin Calderwood's successor. He acknowledged that the pair have been in regular contact, but only because in his capacity as manager of the Faroe Islands he's overseeing the maturation of one of our youngsters, Joan Simun Edmundsson. If he was to be appointed, then it would be a case of reversed roles, Hughton having been Kerr's assistant on the Republic bench.
