I think we might be getting a little bit too far ahead of ourselves on this one.
But I guess it’s a case of absence making the heart grow stronger, as there are some fans who are still yearning for a return to the past.
@Blues_HQ made a proposition the other day on Twitter when they asked if Chris Hughton would be the best realistic option to replace Clotet if he was ever sacked as Blues boss. Hughton, of course, has already taken charge of the Blues during the 2011/12 season before he left to join Premier League side Norwich City.
Was allowing Chris Hughton to leave the club's biggest mistake of the last ten years?
And it seems as though his legacy during his one year has really resonated with the fans as they all pretty much want him to come back, although some express doubts on whether that feeling would and could be mutual.
I’d like Hughton but won’t come with these interfering owners so he’s a no no that’s for sure Mark Robins of Coventry wouldn’t be a bad shout for me 💙💙

I think Hughton would be someone you bring in if your aim was promotion for that season, but he jumped at the chance to leave us after such an amazing season, so I'd look into other options first.

What about you? Do you think Hughton could or would come back in the future?
