Hughton Gets Wrong End Of The Stick!

Nolan is the man for the job - as his goals-per-game record showed in the Championship - but it's Andy Carroll's position of constantly battling alone against two or three cental defenders (during home games) that needs addressing.

Hughton said this week: "Chelsea play 4-5-1 at home and no-one calls them!"

What ... with Dogba and Anelka in the side? 4-5-1 my arse!

Chris Hughton: “Kevin is a big, big player for us. He is key to what we do.

“What he does for us is play in the important role either off the front man or in the midfield and he will always get into goalscoring positions – that is what makes him important.

“Even in a very tight game against Stoke, he was in that position to get our best opportunity of the second half. I have no worries about a player like Kevin.”
