Fulham - Hughes on Smalling!

Fulham - Hughes on Smalling!

Pushed out to play at full back, against Aston Villa, Aaron Hughes might have been a little envious of Chris Smalling playing alongside Brede Hangleand.

But Aaron isn`t like that, he`s a model professional and he has nothing but kind words to say about the youngster who will soon be departing to pastures new.

Speaking about Chris Smalling`s move to Old Trafford, Aaron has waxed,

"If anyone deserves the success then it`s him."

"Arsenal and Manchester United have kept tabs on him and I think we`ll look back in a few years and see it as a bargain. United are no mugs."

"They`ve watched him, he`s been in the England U21`s." They`ll look back and say they stole him."


Time remains the key to this one we think, but Aaron could well have a point!

You never know how these U-21s will turn out, so I think it was good business... even if he does turn into the next Rio Ferdinand!

I'm totally with Teddy on this one, much can happen between now and Smalling being a Premier League regular

He might be a bargain in a few years time for them, but I think it's the most money we could ever receive for him

what is it now - 3 first team games - one own goal and one poor piece of positioning sense giving a goal away! Long way to go I feel!

come now... i can't say the own goal was really his fault... maybe in a positioning respect it was... but i wouldn't put that on him... gabby's first goal, absolutely his fault... but it's a good point, you never know if he'll be a dean ashton or a david nugent... i guess nugent's still got time, but he's no wayne rooney...

Good bit of business, ok it would have been nice to keep him for a while longer but under alex he may develop quicker...
