    I think he'll be leaving with distinction. He's been there 5 seasons, long enough, probably has been their longest serving manager since football was invented. He'll get plenty of other job offers, no problem.
    To a certain extent that's chicken and egg stuff. Are they assembling a squad of accumulative lesser value or is their position in the league reflected in individual players valuations. But I think transfermarkt uses the teams performances, league and player position to value players to a certain extent. For example, both Dunk and Duffy are valued at £10.8m which is really low to me. I'd have them both in the £20-25m range along with Pascal Gross who has been linked to Liverpool and is valued at £9m and is surely closer to £20m than £10m.

    That maybe, but the end result obtained is a remarkable similarity between the position in the table of monetary value and the league table position.

    Hughton has been a pretty defensive minded manager for the most part so not sure he'd be a good fit at Celtic. I suppose you could argue the same with Newcastle and he did well there. That's a good while back though at this stage.

    Middlesbrough is akin to joining the civil service.
    Why doesn't he just take a year of, go climb Everest or K2, solo, with or without an O2 tank.

    If potter takes the Brighton job it might open opportunities for molumby and Connolly potter seemed to bring youth through at Swansea but maybe that was necessity more than choice.

    Perfect!
    Is it natural that a former defender like Hughton will be defensive minded and a former attacker will be attack-minded?

    I think Mick McCarthy has struck a nice balance managing Ireland in the past. Hopefully he will again.

    Hughton deserves to be in the premier league in my opinion.
    But I can see him going back to the championship before Christmas. Any club would be lucky to have him.

    There are probably loads of examples for and against that theory. I suppose it depends on resources and circumstances too sometimes.

    Hughton works with what he has available - if you don't have the players you can't play attacking football.

    When Brighton were in the Championship Hughton had them playing an attacking passing-orientated game. When they got into the PL playing like that would have brought a 6-0 hammering every week.

    Hughton did a remarkable job keeping Brighton in the PL for two seasons - particularly given the fact that he didn't have control over transfers - something that is underappreciated by fans who think their club should be constantly progressing. Hughton is a very under-rated manager. Next season Potter will be manager and if he attempts to do what he did with Swansea this season, Brighton will be relegated by Christmas. The step up from the Championship to the PL is massive - particularly when you don't have a striker capable of 15 goals a season (or two capable of getting 25 between them).

    As for Hughton going to Celtic - he would be an excellent choice for them - but I think his attitude will be that he still has something to prove in the PL. He will probably have to drop to the Championship again (possibly WBA) and get promoted. If he is given 4-5 years at a club in the PL he will prove how good he is. The again he is 60 years old and he may relish the prospect of managing a club playing in Europe before he is finished.

    I agree worth all of the above

    That's fair. I'll bow to your superior knowledge as to the type of football Brighton played in the Championship, I honestly don't know. I always have it in the back of my mind the way he ended up treating (omitting) Wes Hoolahan, as a toothless Norwich plummeted towards the relegation zone. Obviously I'm biased, but it was counter productive in the extreme given their lack of creativity.

    I'm not as sure that he'd be an excellent choice for Celtic but would love to see him do well there if he did get it.

    If he did get the Celtic job then perhaps he could play a more attacking style of football . He could possibly get away with trying that there , where it is very risky at a club like Brighton trying to stay in the top division in England .
