Hughes Goes Public On SWP

Hughes Goes Public On SWP

So. Following on from SWP's Agent Wayne Lindsay saying that the Chelsea bench warmer doesn't fancy leaving London, Sparky 'Bluesy' Hughes speaks out from Denmark...

Mid preparation for the win at all costs UEFA qualifying clash with FC Midtjylland in Denmark, the gaffer spoke to the football media over City's bid for the quicksilver but wasted at Chelsea winger.

'I haven't had the opportunity to take any calls since we landed so I'm sure there will be an update waiting for me.'

'We're obviously keen to bring him to the club if we can. If the opportunity presents itself we'll try to pursue it but we're not further down the road as yet.

'The situation before we flew was the same. It may have moved forward or it may have gone backwards but until I put the call in, I won't know.

'But it's a possibility. We're very hopeful.'

If this signing goes through and the reluctant MCFC Academy hero 'comes home' a deal of recognition is due to Vital MC stalwart Carl 'mcfcthriller' Tilson for his efforts in petitioning for the return of SWP to Eastlands.

IF City can secure SWP on the right and Petrov on the left, our attack would be feared.

Yeah, I bet defences would be terrified at the prospect of SWP running straight into them before falling over.

His best years have been at City. Chelsea have ruined him. Let's see if he sees sense and comes home!

Young English players need games if they are to become great internationals and SWP has never got a decent run at Chelsea. Like Carlton Cole, Johnson and Sidwell, all confidence knacked and surplus to requirements. With a home support who believe in him behind him, he might regain the form that saw him blast goals past Arsenal and the rags. This might all hinge on Chelsea's latest megastar transfer deal, Robinho. If he comes in, I suggest Weasel Kenyon will show SWP the door.

If this happens, I want to say thank you to all those who have helped me with giving your signatures on the petition, much appreciated - who says they never work?

I agree that he needs games but you have to earn your place and Im afraid SWP, when he did play for Chelsea, just didn't perform. I wouldn't blame Chelsea at all and they're not anti-English. You just have to look at the likes of Terry, Lampard and both Coles to see that if they're good enough, they'll play - whatever their nationality.

England's abject and inexcusable failure to qualify for Euro 2008 should have been a precursor for a major review of the English game as was the case in France in the 80's. But the *****poor FA followed modern tradition and threw another load of money at the problem by buying in a foreign manager. I blame clubs like Chelsea absolutely for their failure to develop homegrown talents or prioritise the inclusion of young English players that they bought from rival teams. Their team that played City in the FA Youth Cup final included top young talents bought in from around the world, whereas they were beaten by a City side including lads who have been at City since 9 yrs old. Outside of Terry, Lampard and both Coles were bought by Chelsea so they ceratinly are not Anti english as they will always attempt to buy the best players regardless of nationality. But surely the likes of the big four should be promoting the devlopment of homegrôwn players to improve the national side, not just expect them to perform immediately after purchase. SWP will have had as many substitute appearances as starts in London and has gone backwards as a consequence. Bring on Sepp Blatters proposal to regulate foreign players appearances. Within years there would be a stronger England team and the likes of the young City side you'll be playing next month would be playing in a league with real competition.
