Brighton have sacked Chris Hughton . . . I hope they suffer the same fate as Ipswich after they sacked McCarthy!!

Disgraceful, but not unexpected.  Brighton are doomed.

Thats a ridiculous decision by Brighton. A Premier league club because of the great work by Chris Hughton and thats the thanks he gets?

I hope they get relegated next season now :(

Dunno what he has to do. Did a great job at newcastle too and they also sacked him.

Brave shout from Brighton - they are laying down the marker from here for next season, looks like they don't want to be in and around the bottom again.

Strange since they were certainly as high as 10th in and around xmas. Be interesting to see who they will take from here.

Moyes?

It's a strange decision but whether it is the correct decision or not only time will tell.

Imagine the excitement on here if today's news had been about a team with 'history' like say United or Liverpool  :)

Kompany away from City. Serious operator. Brilliant leader. They will miss his influence.

One of the best captains,defenders and leaders the Premier league has seen. He probably still have another few seasons in him for City or be he couldn't play a full season anymore. No room for sentiment at that club and likes of De ligt,Koulibaly could be signed now.

Too many lads hang on, so Kompany making the right decision to leave after a successful season. I'd be surprised if he played 20 matches a season for the last 3 or 4 years so he's better winding down.

Pity he didn't leave before the Leicester game! Great leader in fairness. His body was starting to let him down but his mind and attitude are still spot on.

Is he not a bit young to be a player manager? Usually someone only does both for maybe a season before he quits playing altogether. Even with injuries and game management he can be influential somewhere as a player only. Especially a team with a big squad and competing on all fronts. Like erm...

Glad to see the back of him!  A massive influence in that team. Seemed to drive them on.

Rule changes for next season in British leagues:
 
http://static-3eb8.kxcdn.com/documents/786/111531_110319_IFAB_LoG_at_a_Glance.pdf

Substituted players to leave the field at closest touchline

The handball rule becomes even more complicated.

No attacking players allowed in defensive walls.

Drop balls for when the ball hits the ref.
