Video: Alan Pardew wrong-names Chris Hughton (or Houghton) at official unveiling as Newcastle manger

Would you like a little insult with that injury, Chris?

As if it wasn’t bad enough that he has been ousted from a job that he was doing very well for the most trivial of reasons, Chris Hughton has now had to suffer the indignity of his successor getting his name wrong at the press conference following his appointment.

Alan Pardew referred to “Chris Houghton” (no relation to Ray, as far as OTP knows). Daredevil that he is, Pardew also used the word “great respect” in the same sentence.

Off to a flyer, Alan.
