Hughes Crying Now?

Noticed this article by Mark Hughes in the Daily Mail this morning. It has already been posted on the Didsbury Blues site, they beat me to it, but for those who haven't seen it, take a look.

  1. Tony I read the article yesterday. It's mainly a PR.piece, the compromised values are explained by his regret at "toeing the party line" whatever that means! His son still works for City so he cannot elaborate (which must have dissapointed all the City bashers),but he was really gutted when sacked so he did have his heartand soul in the job and I, like many others thought he should have been given at least the rest of the season to prove himself. There was also a hint of the problem we suspected at the time where he admits he did not engage with everybody.

  2. I liked the first reader comment, reminding us of the crazy pursuit of the injured Santa Cruz!

    How good was this mornings 'Sunday Supplement' with its almost universal slagging of United and Ferguson and the unanimous support for City, Mancini, Tevez and Sheik Mansoor. Have I been dreaming?

  3. Swings and roundabouts Glyn. The NotW has two stories relating to City, one on how Tevez may quit football for good because Mancini is reliant on him too much and because the row that supposidly erupted last week, may have been forgotten by Mancini, but not by Tevez. The other on how Joe Hart was out on a two day bender, 36 hours before joining the England squad. Gareth Barry was also present. Regarding Hughes, this is the second article I have read in the last few days. Following the last one in the Sun, I wrote to the journalist concerned and told him a few home truths. Apparently Hughes is enjoying life so much more at Fulham following his nightmare at Eastlands, where "the owners response to any problem was to throw money at it" I pointed out that no one at any time pointed a gun at his head and forced him to spend money and that Hughes was in the position most managers would give their right arm to be in. If anyone can be accused of throwing money at a problem, it is Hughes who spent far more on players than they were worth.

  4. According to The People newspaper this morning, Ballotelli has hit another complication with his injury and may not return now untill December. This story was first muted a few weeks ago, but was then refuted by the club very quickly. I wonder if they will do the same this time round?

  5. I cannot understand why we do not get more information from the club regarding injuries. The Balotelli situation changes from day to day,the fans should not have to rely on anti City rags to find out what is going on, in fact the whole PR. situation needs looking into.
    Well done Tony for challenging the Mirror's sister paper"s comments maybe they should put you in charge of the PR.department at City.
    I read a story in the "Independent" about how as things stand if we do qualify for the CL.in four years time as things stand we will be banned,so once again what exactly is going to happen?

  6. That bizarre story about Tevez wanting to quit football has surfaced again in the Daily Mail online.,It's hard to say whether it's a rehash or a restatement by Carlos,he says odd things like "I have been playing since I was young and now I am too old" he is 26.

  7. More bad news today with the news that Marsaille are to sue NDJ for his "horror" tackle. Alan Brasil was standing up for us this morning saying that this was not the kind of tackle that deliberately set out to harm. Although he didn't mention any cases, clearly Keane's tackle on Haaland was. He reckons this will be very much a test case and if the French club are succesful, it will open the floodgates for a legal case following every challenge. Let's not forget that the referee, his two assistants and the fourth official found nothing wrong with NDJ's tackle.

  8. SCOOP! SCOOP! SCOOP! THE TRUTH BEHIND THE NIGEL DE JONG TACKLE.
    What we the officials everybody at the ground saw was in fact an optical illusion perpetrated by MI6. What really happened was this. Mr De Jong seeking revenge for the eighties song "Walk like an Egyptian" by the Bangles had formulated his plan months before covertly taking pictures of Ben Arfas legs to ensure the success of his master plan, according to some observers who watched replays after the game(not mentioning any names like Graham Poll for instance) Mr.De Yong flew through the air like a guided missile at a 45 degree angle twisting his legs in a remarkable scissor action splintering Ben Arfas legs into a million pieces while the ball was not even in the ground, according to a Mrs Collymore of Birmingham it was the most shocking experience she had ever had thing she had apart from when she was taken to the planet Zog and experimented on in the 70"s and had a foetus implanted in her,she continued Mr.De Jong stood over the broken agonised body laughing and was heard to say "You won't be walking like an Egyptian for a while" the execution is a week on Monday applications the for executioners position by E-Mail only to idiotsareus.com
