Leave Off Hughes!

Leave Off Hughes!

Yesterday we reported on how Mark Hughes had suddenly been catapulted into the frame to become the next manager of Aston Villa.

Following events yesterday, the scenario is fast approaching a point where something could happen.

Aston Villa, due to Gerard Houllier`s health, agreed a severance package with the Frenchman and are now, definitely, on the look-out for a replacement.

Fulham, wary of Hughes being on the hit-list, have, reportedly responded by telling Villa not to approach Hughes. But, and it is a big but, there appears to be no indication as to whether Hughes activated the clause in his contract that could make him a free agent.

Other articles we stumbled on suggest that Fulham have also offered Hughes a new deal with his pay improved.

Like we said earlier, something could happen very soon!

Just for interest - what is your opinion of Hughes. I know from the Villa boards we are really firmly against the appointment. Has he been good at Fulham or would you guys be glad to see him go?

If he leaves you it says a lot about his loyalty (or rather lack of it) and for that reason (and many more) I wouldnt want him at the Villa. Good luck to Fluham for next season.

Ancelotti and Wilkins - 1st choice Hughes - 2nd choice Can someone tell me what is so special about Hughes? He is just 'a good coach' - how is he different to Bruce, Holloway, Dave Jones or even Brendan Rodgers?

Hughes has not been my favorite during his time at Fulham, but I can't complain about the way we finished the season, so I have to give him some credit. Still, I firmly believe that this is still very much Hodgson's team and once healthy and free of reckless tactics, could've won for just about anybody. As far as Hughes loyalty, I can't blame him for joining a bigger club anymore than I could fault Hodgson for jumping to Liverpool. It's just business. IMO, Hughes is still not over his dismissal from City and feels that he has something to prove, and it'll take a bigger club to achieve that. For continuity's sake, I'd prefer him to stay, but I won't be too bothered if he leaves, as long as he decides SOON. I don't want another situation like last summer.
