Fulham - Hughes Hand Shake Row!

First it was Tony Pulis and now it appears to be Roberto Mancini who has wound up Mark Hughes.

Following the well-earned 1-1 draw up at the City of Manchester Stadium yesterday, a draw that would have given Mark great satisfaction, Mark wasn`t too happy about the manner in which the usual after-match handshake was offered by his opposite number.

Explaining his actions, Mark commented to the media,

"It`s probably my fault again but I`m a little bit old fashioned. I always think if you offer your hand, it should be accepted regardless of the circumstances. Sometimes it`s difficult."

"I had to offer my hand and do it with sincerity when my team was beaten 4-1 by Roberto`s - I acknowledged that his team was better and he deserved a handshake with sincerity."

"Maybe I misread it but I just didn`t think Roberto acknowledged the efforts of my team and how well we`d done, by the manner of the way he offered his hand. Was it payback for what happened at our place?"

"I don`t recall doing that. I think he`s incorrect."


Personally, I wouldn`t have even offered my hand to somebody who jumped behind my old desk before the seat had even cooled, would you?

Petty feuds. Who cares. Let's move on.

Seriously... I miss "Gentleman" Roy in this situation... it seems the players are taking their cues from Sparky also... First Baird lashing out at Petrov last week and then Dempsey and Duff doing some foolish things and avoiding a booking somehow... I'm not crazy about it...

What a load of nonsense. Glad to see the Fulham fans are all as bothered about it as we are oop North. Time to move on now!

He hasn't changed too much since his playing days has he?

Actually I applaud mark because he is such a level headed experienced manager....but out on the pitch....game day and in the moment he shows passion and so please lets not mistake that incident as a generalisation. Plus its good to the lads get stuck in. I think the lads are tired of the draws, as they are playing well enough for wins! I think until dempsey scores again, the penalty save against the blue scum will hang on him a bit.
