I think it is too much of a gamble for Hughes to sign for you guys. Good team with a lot going for you but it could all fall flat like it did for Sven! Plus, it's a sideways step in my opinion.

Backwards step!!! Oh well, he'll be given the boot in 12 months and we can have him back then. Cue the raids for Bents and Nelson.

It just shows Rovers fans are afraid of losing Hughes. Surely they must understand by coming to City it would further his career! (lol)
