Ex-NUFC boss lands top Championship job after 17 months out – Next stop, Premier League?

Former Newcastle United boss Chris Hughton has been appointed the new manager of Nottingham Forest.

This comes just an hour after the sacking of Sabri Lamouchi, who was not only slated as they missed out on the play-offs on the final day of 2019/20 but has also overseen FOUR straight defeats at the start of the new season.

Hughton has been out of the game for 17 months following his sacking at Brighton in May 2019, but he’ll be looking to add yet another promotion to the Premier League to his CV after successful spells in the second tier with both ourselves and Brighton.

Nottingham Forest have it all to do, being 22nd in the table and sat on zero points, but if there’s anyone who can pull it off, it’s Hughton!

It was reported back in July that he was close to being appointed Bristol City boss after talks with the Robins, however he’s now sealed a long-awaited return to football in the form of Nottingham Forest.

A great man and a manager who played a huge role in stabilising our club following our relegated back in 2009, with his win percentage of 55% being the highest of any Newcastle United boss since 1992.

If his track record in the Championship is anything to go by, we might see Bristol City competing towards the top end of the second tier soon!

Good luck, Chris!
