Brighton made the shock decision to part company with Hughton yesterday, following the end of the Premier League season.
The 60-year-old boss is now free to look for other clubs, and some Forest fans feel that he would be an upgrade on Martin O’Neill.
Sack O'Neill and bring in Hughton. Guaranteed promotion. I'm not even slightly joking #nffc— James Cummings (@87yearofthewolf) May 13, 2019
Would swap Martin O’Neill for Chris Hughton in a heartbeat #nffc— fade to black stand up 4 brexit (@Iam2phenomenal) May 13, 2019
If Chris Hughton is looking for a new job, I'd love to see him at #nffc— DizzyBala (@DizzyBala) May 13, 2019
We should be knocking down Chris Hughton's door right now to do everything possible to get him to take the #NFFC job.— DGB (@DGBCampbell) May 13, 2019
O’Neill still has a lot of work to do to win over his doubters at the City Ground.
The Irish boss’s appointment was controversial in the first place, and Forest haven't exactly improved since.
The Reds missed out on the play offs, with O’Neill suggesting he wants to make changes this summer.
Hughton has a strong track record of earning promotion from the Championship, and could be an exciting appointment for Forest, if they were to put him in charge.
