12:01 Saturday 17th August 2019

In the 2018/19 campaign, Brighton & Hove Albion narrowly avoided relegation. It's fair to say the South Coast side went backwards during their second season back in the top flight. Hence why I felt the decision to sack Chris Hughton…

Why Brighton were right to roll the dice and sack Chris Hughton
17:00 Friday 24th May 2019

15:00 Wednesday 15th May 2019

09:30 Saturday 21st April 2018
