Chris Hughton admits he made 'poor decisions' at Newcastle United

Chris Hughton Newcastle

The current Brighton boss has been discussing his spell at Newcastle.

Chris Hughton may be enjoying life at Brighton but he admits to making 'poor decisions' during his time as Newcastle United boss, according to the Shields Gazette.

Indeed, the coach has been reflecting on his career - one filled with plenty of highs but also several lows - and knows no manager is perfect and that there are things he could have done better.

Hughton got Newcastle promoted to the Premier League but was dismissed by the St James' Park outfit later down the line and acknowledges the fact he made some bad calls.

Hughton told the Gazette: "No regrets but you make poor decisions. You have so many decisions to make as a manager. You can’t make all of them right. You mull over things you could have done better.

"That’s normal and natural, but you can’t afford to dwell on them as you have so many decisions to make.

"If you dwell on bad decisions, it can affect the next one. You learn things and try to do the best job you can.

"Generally I never have [regrets]. There are things that I could have and should have done better."

Whatever some may think of Hughton's time at Newcastle, he certainly did a better job than John Carver. The ill feeling towards Alan Pardew also seems to be far stronger.

The fate of Steve McClaren is unclear but the signs aren't looking very good at all. No matter how much strife Newcastle fans are put through it just seems to get worse.

And things don't look like they will get any easier this weekend, as the Magpies host a Liverpool side who have been rampant away from home in recent weeks...
