Does surprise me Chris Hughton is not on the shortlist #avfc— Luke Marshall (@marshallavfc) April 5, 2016
Is Hughton a good fit for the position? Did a good job with Newcastle and seems to do great in the Championship. #avfc— Christer (@Chrsmo) March 30, 2016
Wonder why no-one's talking about Chris Hughton. Got Newcastle straight back up and done well in the Championship. #avfc— Andy_avfc (@Andy__avfc) March 30, 2016
