Houghton was shocking last year for Brighton and was deservedly sacked... Not only did they play extremely poor football and almost went down but he lost the players' confidence and didn't manage to integrate any of his big signings like Alireza, Andone, Locadia etc.Moyes is a breed of manager that is outdated in the Premier league today.
Chris Houghton was doing a great job at Brighton but they still sacked him, as even the smaller clubs in the Premier league are hoping to find a new innovative Eddie Howe type manager, who plays nice football and turns exciting potential into stars.
Football evolves quickly and if you don't adapt like Fergie always did then you get left behind like Mourinho, Big Sam, Moyes, Wenger, Van Gaal etc have been
They are twice as good now thanks to Potter. Houghton is a nice bloke I'm sure but that's leadto him becoming crazy overrated, he is way worse than memed, laughed at managers like Allardyce and Pardew even, and PL clubs aren't exactly rushing to sign him are they?
Motes is a good manager still I believe but I agree with your sentiment, I think PL clubs all want to be the next Leicester or emulate Pochettino Everton/Michu Swansea etc with a young foreign manager with flair players. It will end badly for many of them though.
