      So chuffed for him, securing promotion for Brighton to the Premier League. 3 games left, if he can bag 1 more win they'll take the Championship title too! That's some achievement!

      He already won a Championship title with Newcastle, so to do it again but with Brighton (& beat them Newcastle to it in the process) is pretty incredible.

      He's turning into a quality manager. He struggled a bit last time in the Premier League but people forget how inexperienced he still was at that point. Will be interesting to see how he does with Brighton this time around, with less resources but less expectation also. He's a top geezer and 100% Spurs too, so I wish him all the best!

      Awesome for my local team. 20 years ago their stadium was demolished and they languished on the brink of extinction, playing in Gillingham and the Withdean leisure centre. Now they have a nice new stadium and premier league football to look forward to

      I love him, such a humble guy, can only wish a fella like him all the best, good things deserve to happen to good guys.

      On the other hand, I think Zola resigning at B'ham is mildly amusing, they sack Rowett, who'd taken them to within 3 pts off the playoffs (I know very early on in the season), but I'm guessing they wanted someone to capitalise on a potential promotion push by appointing a high profile name.

      Well that's backfired, 23 games later and only 2 wins and they're now 3 pts off relegation! Kinda hope they go down.

      Brighton always make me think of my old English teacher. He was a typical academic, but his face was more flushed than Fergie's thanks to his love of Sherry! He was a top bloke tho and he stopped me getting expelled on several occasions (all of which I only discovered AFTER I had left the school!).

      He was always going on about his beloved Seagulls! He passed away a couple years ago now, but I hope he's smiling and having a Sherry wherever he is now!

      Yh, Zola seems a nice enough guy, but I got no love for ex-Chelsea so he can burn...

      I always thought he was hung out a bit in the prem. I like him also he talks straight and does well with what he has.

      Very pleased for Hughton, top bloke. He has done a good job up there.

      Pleased also my local team are in the PL. Anyone who can get me a ticket for the Spurs end next season when we come down here would be fantastic.

      I could walk to the ground, only problem is I would have to go in the opposite direction.

      @Ted the Yid and @Havocc based on the above, you two should get to know each other and sort tickets for the Spurs game?

      I'm really pleased for Hughton. He was one of my unsung heroes (whatever happened to that great idea) back in the 80's, never seemed to put a foot wrong , was never injured from memory and always gave 100%. Now he's a top bloke and decent manager that has been harshly treated on occasion, especially at Newcastle, which must make this triumph all the sweeter. Many congratulations. I wonder what the likes of him and Eddie Howe could do with some cash behind them.....better job than Mourinho at United? he and Van Gaal have spent £393m in the past 5 years.

      If Newcastle don't make it and Sunderland, Middlesboro and Hull go down, it's going to be terrible for the North East. Huge loyal fanbases, cash (at Newcastle) and years of poor management, no excuses really.
