'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Was a Deal Almost Done?

The fall-out from Mark Hughes sudden and dramatic departure from Craven Cottage continues to dominate the news.

One leading tabloid carries an article that infers that negotiations were, it`s thought, to have reached a successful conclusion with a club insider providing the following dialect to the reference tabloid,

"On Wednesday evening there was a fully negotiated two-year contract with a substantial pay-rise just needing to be checked over by lawyers and to be signed by mark Hughes."

"Yet less than a day later it`s all over and he`s resigned. But of a manager can`t give commitment or loyalty to the chairman then its best they move on now and not in August with a new season looming."


Obviously a clear reference to Roy Hodgson jumping ship at the last moment last summer.

Hughes clearly thinks (thought) there were opportunities to come and acted accordingly. This is a man with something to prove and likely will not rest until he exacts some sort of 'payback' on Man City for the perceived injustice he feels.

he's a good manager, but it seems he wasn't over the whole Man City incident... glad he's gone if his heart wasn't in it...
