Hughes succeeded Tony Pulis at Stoke in May and guided them to three straight ninth-placed finishes before dropping to 13th in The Welshman was dismissed by Stoke after five defeats in seven league games, and subsequently guided Southampton to safety.
David Moyes is a really good fit for Stoke and more so for the club's owners. The stability that Stoke offer will be really attractive to him especially coming out of the environment he has been in at West Ham.
A chairman like Peter Coates for managers is fabulous. He really lets you get on with the job and gives you plenty of freedom.
It's a great fit and I can see it being successful. Stoke looked like a team trying to hold on for 45 minutes and, while Lambert has tightened their defence since arriving in January, it seemed a risky approach.
Shoulders slumped around the stadium when he bobbled a shot home. The decisive moment came with four minutes left.
It was cruel, perhaps, that the final error came from the man who has been with Stoke since they came up to the top flight.
The result also confirmed that Palace are safe. Roy Hodgson has done an extraordinary job since taking over a team that had not managed a goal or a point in their first four games, and went three more in kind under him but he tried to direct praise towards his backroom staff.
In some ways it might be the kindest thing that it is over now for Stoke. Even with a victory they might still have gone down this weekend, so at least this curtailed their pain.
In sports leagues , promotion and relegation is a process where teams are transferred between multiple divisions based on their performance for the completed season.
The best-ranked team s in the lower division are promoted to the higher division for the next season, and the worst-ranked team s in the higher division are relegated to the lower division for the next season.
In some leagues, playoffs or qualifying rounds are also used to determine rankings. This process can continue through several levels of divisions , with teams being exchanged between levels 1 and 2, levels 2 and 3, levels 3 and 4, and so on.
During the season, teams that are high enough in the league table that they would qualify for promotion are sometimes said to be in the promotion zone , and those at the bottom are in the relegation zone or, colloquially, the drop zone or facing the drop.
An alternate system of league organisation which is used primarily in the US, Canada and Australia is a closed model based on licensing or franchises.
This maintains the same teams from year to year, with occasional admission of expansion teams and relocation of existing teams , and with no team movement between the major league and minor leagues.
The number of teams exchanged between the divisions is almost always identical. Exceptions occur when the higher division wishes to change the size of its membership, or has lost one or more of its clubs to financial insolvency or expulsion, for example and wishes to restore its previous membership size, in which case fewer teams are relegated from that division, or less often more teams are accepted for promotion from the division below.
Such variations usually cause a "knock-on" effect through the lower divisions. For example, in the Premier League voted to reduce its numbers by two and achieved the desired change by relegating four teams instead of the usual three, whilst allowing only two promotions from Football League Division One.
Even in the absence of such extraordinary circumstances, the pyramid-like nature of most European sports league systems can still create knock-on effects at the regional level.
For example, in a higher league with a large geographical footprint and multiple feeder leagues each representing smaller geographical regions, should most or all of the relegated teams in the higher division come from one particular region then the number of teams to be promoted or relegated from each of the feeder leagues may have to be adjusted, or one or more teams playing near the boundary between the feeder leagues may have to transfer from one feeder league to another to maintain numerical balance.
The system is said to be the defining characteristic of the "European" form of professional sports league organization.
Promotion and relegation have the effect of allowing the maintenance of a hierarchy of leagues and divisions, according to the relative strength of their teams.
They also maintain the importance of games played by many low-ranked teams near the end of the season, which may be at risk of relegation.
In contrast, a low-ranked US or Canadian team's final games serve little purpose, and in fact losing may be beneficial to such teams, yielding a better position in the next year's draft.
Although not intrinsic to the system, problems can occur due to the differing monetary payouts and revenue-generating potential that different divisions provide to their clubs.
For example, financial hardship has sometimes occurred in leagues where clubs do not reduce their wage bill once relegated.
This usually occurs for one of two reasons: Some leagues most notably English football's Premier League offer " parachute payments " to its relegated teams for the following year s.
However, in many cases these parachute payments just serve to inflate the costs of competing for promotion among the lower division clubs as newly relegated teams retain a financial advantage.
In some countries and at certain levels, teams in line for promotion may have to satisfy certain non-playing conditions in order to be accepted by the higher league, such as financial solvency, stadium capacity, and facilities.
If these are not satisfied, a lower-ranked team may be promoted in their place, or a team in the league above may be saved from relegation. On several occasions, the Italian Football Federation has relegated clubs found to have been involved in match-fixing.
This occurred most recently in , when the season's initial champions Juventus were relegated to Serie B, and two other teams were initially relegated but then restored to Serie A after appeal see Serie A scandal.
In some Communist nations, particularly several in Europe after World War II, clubs were promoted and relegated for political reasons rather than performance; clubs in East Germany , Romania , and Yugoslavia were given top-flight placements by the Communist authorities from their beginnings, and often held onto their places with these authorities' backing.
Promotion and relegation may be used in international sports tournaments. In tennis, the Davis Cup and Fed Cup have promotion and relegation, with a 'World Group' split into two divisions in the Fed Cup at the top and series of regional groups at a lower level.
But they stayed up - despite winning only six games all season. BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce: Tony Pulis should not have been sacked. The board should have invested heavily last summer.
I hope Alan Pardew can bring them back up straight away but that'll be a massive task. Mark Hughes 20 points from 22 games , Eddie Niedzwiecki caretaker, no points from one game , Paul Lambert six points from five games.
Four wins may not sound like a big ask for manager Paul Lambert, but Stoke have managed only six all season.
Five have come at home, and the visits of Burnley, Crystal Palace and Everton will be highlighted in Lambert's office.
After that, a final-day showdown at Swansea? The Potters have been a mess at the back. No team has conceded more goals 54 or kept fewer clean sheets four - and that's despite Butland and Lee Grant making more saves than goalkeepers of any other team.
A league-worst haul of seven points on the road has also been decisive. Shaqiri scored a hat-trick at the last World Cup and could enter another for Switzerland in peak form - he has scored three goals and supplied an assist in Lambert's five games.
There aren't enough young legs in the squad. Shaqiri can't keep coming up with 'worldies'. I can only see two more wins and, if they have to win at Swansea on the last day to stay up, they'll be in the Championship.
Paul Clement 12 points from 18 games , Leon Britton caretaker, one point from two games , Carlos Carvalhal 14 points from eight games. Another 10 points from their last 10 games.
On current form, you'd have to fancy their chances, although trips to both Manchester clubs and the visit of Chelsea won't help.
That last-day clash with Stoke could be a huge one. Don't shoot, don't score. Swansea have scored the fewest goals 21 , had the fewest shots and shots on target 64 all season.
Can they suddenly find a way to be a threat? Maybe bad luck has played a part too. Jordan Ayew may be the Swans' top scorer with five goals but he has also hit the woodwork four times.
Only Kevin de Bruyne and Harry Kane can better that. Carvalhal was a left-field appointment to replace Clement, but credit where credit's due - he has made a difference.
As well as the many food-related anecdotes he has served up, the Portuguese has steered the Swans to four wins in his opening eight games to give them a chance of extending their stay in the top flight.
If they stay up, perhaps Lukasz Fabianski should be due some thanks. He has made the most saves in the Premier League , but Swansea have only conceded the 12th most goals He has brought an upwardly mobile feel to the club.
But for how long? A final-day win over Stoke should see them finally safe. Frank de Boer no points from four games , Roy Hodgson 27 points from 24 games.
Like Swansea, Palace need another 10 points for Roy Hodgson to complete his salvage operation. A tricky looking run of games won't do them any favours, though, with home games against Brighton, Leicester and West Brom possibly holding the key.
A dreadful start under Frank de Boer left Palace playing catch-up, while striker Christian Benteke scoring only twice has not helped. Add in a bad recent run of no wins from five games and you can see why Palace have hit the skids.
At the age of 70, Hodgson is well on his way to proving his critics wrong. Inheriting a team with no points and no goals, he has given the Eagles a fighting chance of survival going into the home straight.
Wilfried Zaha has been crucial - his dribbles put him top of the Premier League list - while Luka Milivojevic's accuracy from the spot makes him an unlikely goal hero.
BBC senior football reporter Ian Dennis: They may dip back into the bottom three but with their vociferous home support the best atmosphere in the top flight, they will bounce back out before May.
Roy Hodgson did it with Fulham and he can do it again. A final-day win against old manager Alan Pardew might come in the nick of time but the fans deserve better than this.
Another club 10 points away from the predicted safety mark. Three wins and a draw required, ideally before the final-day visit of the champions elect.
Southampton's home form has been terrible but this weekend's visit of Stoke is already looking like a big game. Was sacking Claude Puel a bad call?
Southampton finished eighth last season and reached the League Cup final. Pellegrino has not really caught the imagination of Saints fans, who have seen only three home wins all season.
Another merger, with the top division of the Southern League in , helped form the Third Division in similar fashion. Since then no new league has been formed of non-league clubs to try to achieve parity with The Football League only to play at a lower level, like independent professional leagues in American baseball today.
For decades, teams finishing near the bottom of The Football League's lowest division s faced re-election rather than automatic relegation.
But the principle of promotion and relegation had been firmly established, and it eventually expanded to the football pyramid in place today.
Meanwhile, The FA has remained English football's overall governing body, retaining amateur and professional clubs rather than breaking up.
Promotion and relegation has been used in several eSports leagues. Wings of Liberty uses a seven-level promotion and relegation system  for its tournament structure.
Individual players and pre-made teams can be promoted and relegated during the first few weeks of a league season, which generally lasts around 11 weeks, with promotion and relegation taking place based on a hidden skill rating, which is in turn based on wins and losses.
Global Offensive Majors use a similar system wherein the top eight finishers of one of the tri-annual Majors are designated with the "Legends" seed and automatically qualified for the next Major tournament.
The bottom eight teams must play in a qualifying tournament in order to compete at the next Major. From until , the Eurovision Song Contest used various systems of relegation to reconcile the number of countries wishing to participate approximately 30 at the time with the number of performances allowed considering time constraints of a live television program.
The addition of a semi-final in allowed for more than 26 songs, but in automatic qualification of the previous year's top 10 to the final was removed.
From to and from to the present, the Argentine First Division has used a system called Promedios based on the average performance over a number of seasons.
Originally the previous two seasons, and later three or four seasons, clubs avoid relegation by having a high coefficient, which is obtained by dividing the points achieved in the last four seasons by the number of matches played in the same period.
Teams with the lowest points coefficient at the end of the season are relegated to the Primera B Nacional. This system has both positive and negative aspects, since all of the matches played for the championship in the last seasons are included in the coefficient for the clubs.
Similarly, River Plate finished last in the Torneo Apertura and after two bad campaigns and a regular one was relegated in the Torneo Clausura despite being in fifth place and qualifying for the Copa Sudamericana.
This system forces the newly promoted teams to fight relegation from the very beginning of the season. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
