Our Football Insider Graeme Bailey believes Brighton will give a good account of themselves next season.
“Brighton have done a great job this season but more accurately I would say Chris Hughton has done a great job, he has a decent budget but nowhere near the likes of a Newcastle or Aston Villa – yet he looks set to win the title,” Bailey told TheGamblingTimes.com.
“With Hughton in charge I could see Brighton pushing for top-half, but they need to back him”
“This is a brilliant performance and he is one of the Managers of the Year in England, not just the Championship but Premier League too – he has shown himself to be a top notch manager.
“With Hughton in charge I could see Brighton pushing for top-half, but they need to back him – they need to trust him and give him the funds to make sure they establish themselves in the top-flight.”
